It seems that in the last two months they all disappeared. Now I rarely can find even one person in a server. Have they all moved to UO?

possible. i know that GFM has been recently been released, and is by far the best mod out there. course, there are bugs, but is possibly the best mod out there.

Sorry gopaloo, but HoB is definatley the best mod for CoD or CoDUO. GFM is still too buggy to top HOB, but it could at some point (it really is a matter of taste anyway). Anyway, to answer your question Riles, it is hard to find a server running HoB that is populated. The v.41 release has breathed a fresh air into the mod, but if you want to find someone to play, you really need to be on Sat. and Sun. afternoon on the MikesMaruders! server. The Heat of Battle community is still thriving here: heatofbattle.net. There, you can talk to other HoBo's there, and see some great updates (with screenshots!) on how the porting of the mod to the Source engine is going.

hmm...guess you have a point there mate. but whats good for HoB is that it gives you a little taste of what UO is, without having UO. oh, talkin bout GFM, they say that there is no single player :(

it is a new mod that has player classes, new maps, vehicles, and what not, making alot of improvments on realism, and even though it has its share of bugs, they are miniscule, the mod is simply awsome. i currently only play cod with the german front mod, just as well as my tactical realism unit.

Ah, so this mod if for UO and not CoD. I just got back to CoD after a few months away from it, had UO uninstalled so I could play something else. Thanks for the info. :)

Yeah, GFM is basicly HoB, but with vehicles. It uses slower pace of gameplay, like HoB, and it also amps up the power of each individual shot. Making more of a relisim mod, like HoB.

Ensign, if you dont want GFM, which i highly recommend, you can go to BFE (Battle for Europe) which is for normal CoD. It is not a mod but does have a little "mini mod" for the capaign. It is a tournament that focuses on teamwork. You get assigned a division and play with the other guys in yours for every battle against other divisions. It is a ton of fun and if you like teamwork, which you need in HoB and GFM then i recommend it. link is right here :http://cod.battleforeurope.com/ hope this helps.
