Blitzkrieg Mod 5.1.1 Limited Steam Beta

Hey guys,

we have made another progress in our way to steam. As part of pre-steam release we are offering interested players access to our otherwise closed beta builds.

Any player who writes here can request steam key for Company of Heroes: Blitzkrieg Mod. You have to own and have installed Company of Heroes on steam (it was recently renamed from new steam version to just Company of Heroes).

I or another team member will then send you the key and instructions how to join beta-branch. You can activate that key like you would from any other game in steam.

You can simply switch between 5.0.0 and 5.1.1 beta on steam.

So, anyone interested?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
EDIT by MarKr:
There was a request to post the changelog too. So I add it here rather than somewhere to the middle of the thread:

General:
- Improved faction flags in the game lobby (including reward menu flags)
- Fixed missing part of texture on some Axis infantry units
- for 37mm, 50mm and 57mm guns delay before first shot reduced to half
- Revised performance of various AA units vs planes
- Your medics now need to collect 18 wounded soldiers from the field in order for you to get a free squad
- Medic teams buildable in Triage centers/Medic bunkers + AB dropable medic team now heal soldiers around automatically once they don't move (no longer needed to activate the ability manually)

US:
- Fixed Tank Commander off-map arty ability requiring wrong unlock in unlock tree
- .50cal twin on M15A1 should perform better vs planes (no longer bounce off of planes)
- Fixed suppression values for .50cal twin on M15A1 and also performance vs infantry in certain cover types revised
- Removed unit limit on M15A1
- Added "Hold position" ability to Ranger Captain
- Jumbo tanks will no longer take continuous damage near Tiger Ace tanks
- Tweaked efficiency of M18 HE shot
- Tweaked M1 Garands for Rangers and Riflemen
- Riflemen now with veterancy levels get cooldown reduction instead of accuracy bonus
- Riflegrenades are now available to all doctrines
- Riflegrenades now require WSC building instead of Motorpool
- When you purchase Rifle grenade upgrade you cannot purchase BARs or Grease guns any longer and vice versa
- Cost of Riflemen increased to 255MP
- Cost of Rangers increased to 390MP

CW:
- Tweaked efficiency of HE shot on Achilles, Firefly, 17 pounder

Axis:
- Storms Demosquad no longer retreats in crawl mode
- HLL3 has tweaked crits - either deals only damage or destroys vehicle outright
- Lowered efficiency of MG42 on sdkfz234/3 (Puma chasiss with stubby 75mm cannon + front-facing MG42)
- Corrected animation for the default gun crew on naked 20mm flak
- VT ability in Def doc no longer mentions need for StuH42

PE:
- Henschels should no longer attack structures and AT guns on their flight path
- Ambush ability on Jagdpanther no longer dissapears when it is not possible to activate it
- Tweaked efficiency of MarderIII HE shot
- Infantry can no longer upgrade neutral buildings to "Reinforcement points"
- Upgrading "Defensive operations" will now allow FHQs to heal nearby soldiers
- Corrected penetration chance of Beute Sherman 76(W) vs Super Pershing

"Tweaked HE shot of unit X" = lowered efficiency on all these units (smaller AoE, bigger damage drop)

MarKr gave me access recently, haven't yet got the chance to REALLY test stuff with any of the few others who have got it currently.. but I have noticed few bugs for now! Though I would say the change-log should be probably posted here first before discussing any related glitches or so?

P.S
Nice new faction flags by the way, I just noticed the flags were apparently updated just few moments ago ^^

Yup, pretty simple to get it! ^^

So far though, the keys are obviously limited...
Therefore I think the devs this way should probably prepare some spare keys or something, if that's even possible.. hehe :P

Everyone apparently wants a piece of the cake! Even before it's fully cooked yet :D

For all of you testing the beta build - the changes and mod in general is made to be played under certain settings and other settings might cause ballance issues. The seetings were mentioned 1000times but just to be safe, I will say it once more:
- 2v2 or 3v3
- High resources
- big maps (prefferably the +1 system)
If someone reports that he played 5 games on Angloville map, all with the same doc and got his ass kicked every time and thus the doc is "weak and needs buff" - such report is useless because the game was not played on the needed settings. If you don't like the recommended settings, try to "suffer
through" a few games like that anyway - just for the testing purposes. If you're not willing to do that, you should probably not ask for the beta access.

Anyway - we can only give out limited number of beta keys, those that were issued to me to give out have already been given, as far as I know Wolf has some more so he will address you when he gets to it, but won't be able to give beta access to everyone so it is sort of "first come, first served".

I wish I could "like" your post like in other social media, Markr. Instead, I'll just have to admit I'm sittin on a boner reading the required testing settings.

Hi guys.

Can I have a key too, please?

Quick question...if people are on the beta, can they connect to non-beta games? Are most of the BK Community playing the beta these days?
