ok I need some strageties here, I dont know why but the comp keeps beating me on the skrimish mode and even on easy! Like I just had a 3 hour game and it was really awsome and all, but at the end the Germans wore me down to practicly nothing, and I quit as soon as the Germans broke through my main defences and my front lines where in shatteres, and they where taking control points like crazy....then I saw this bloody Tiger come out of the woodwork all of a sudden, so I knew I was done

can anyone here give me some tactics on how to beat the comp on skrimish mode?

thanks

btw I dont suck at all RTS games it's just this lol

I figure myself as a fairly good commander when playing any other strtegic game and can often win battles when I am hugely outgunned/outnumbered.... But on COH I am slaughtered on anything above normal. I think the key is to Pause the game, give actions, unpause and repeat. The CPU can order multiple units at once so its fair. On the SP demo, try and capture teh church as a forward barracks and capture the middle strategic points FIRST!. THEN link them to your base.

badger-dude is right, you NEED to take that Church, also, no matter what side you play take the island on the right side of the map, and turn that building on it into a field barracks. that and bring snipers, use those to take out the AT gun crews and keep your vehicles alive.

Here's MY full walkthrough for Semois with Comp on Victory Control:

I would say always go infantry on semois.

Start by building 3 - 5 extra engineer squad's beside your standard. Then let 1 or 2 engineer teams capture the fuel and ammo and head for the South Victory Point. At the same time, 1 or 2 other engineer squads are heading for the church. 1 Of those captures the point just over the bridge and the second the one near the church. Then the enemy wouldn't be there yet, but it won't take long so make the church your forward base. Then 1 or 2 other engineer teams head for the North Victory Point, normally the enemy never goes there in the begin, only later they will, so you won't have trouble there. Then you must always keep 1 engineer team on your base. Let them make a SUPPORT CENTER not barracks! Then start making 3 snipers, 1 for the north VP in 1 of the houses, 1 in the church and 1 in a house near the South VP. At the same time, let the engineers capture the remaining strategic points behind you, while they also build 1 MG nest at EACH point (Except the church VP, there you can replace it with a normal MG team). Then if you earn commander points, spend them all on the left bar from infantry (which is first faster unit deployment, then rangers and then reinforcements). Then also keep watching your base, once you have enough resources make a supply depot and after that ONLY a tank depot or whatever it's called I don't fully remember :). Anyway if you haven't done yet, then send the engineers to place OP's on the fuel points you have. Save your manpower now you will need it. When you have the chance to make a Sherman - DO SO, after you made 1 Sherman save up for the Sherman main gun upgrade which makes it stronger. Then keep making either Sherman's or ranger squads to hold the enemy off.

And that's basically it, be sure to put the tanks near the church, from there they can operate the fastest and they mainly attack either the church VP or the south VP with tanks the most, so watch out there. Remember as well DO NOT attack their base, you could lose all your units there and then they take it all and then you are in big problems.

It's not too hard anyway.

Oh also remember, send the Rangers only 2-3 times in the game, other wise you won't get enough manpower for the tanks later in the game, which means they will overrun you with tanks while you only got some rangers on the field.

If you have enough troops and A/T,Mortar crews, I found that with providing the right cover you can get a couple of squad of para troopers to flank the tank armed with recoil-less rifles and explosives to take any tank out. I like this game because there are a number of different tactics (though there could be more variety with more troop types) to overtake anything. Try to save the game before a long battle is about to take place, or if your about to be attacked, its kinda like cheating, but it sucks to play for a half an hour then lose a detrimental battle and have to play another half hour to get back to that same circumstance. Once troop maneuvering is mastered along with the placement of early defenses like barb wire (and not trapping your engineers within the barb wire, lol) you'll be golden. G.L.

Yeah great adviace..but easy is well...a joke.

Hard is where it is at and the above advice helps.

easy makes a Car. normal makes a Stug hard makes a Tiger expert makes a Panther

That's usually how they reach.
