About This Game

The War 1918 is a WW1 modification for Company of Heroes, focusing on the last year of the First World War. Currently it features the British Expeditionary Force and the German Empire as opposing factions; however new nations will be brought over time, such as France and Austria-Hungary. The mod focuses on a realistic and accurate representation of warfare in 1918 while keeping a balanced and enjoyable gameplay.

Experience the great operations of the last year of the Great War as Germany breaks through the Western Front in the Spring Offensive; as the Entente, liberate France and Belgium in the Hundred Days offensive. Look forward to heavy artillery strikes and the infamous gas attacks. Trenches will provide vital cover for infantry while tanks will roll over the battlefield and instil fear into the enemy.

British AT armed tanks (MKIV/MKV) cannot shoot targets directly in front of them with their side mounted cannons (which they could do irl iirc), this leads to an inane amont of micro needed to make them fight vehicles because if you don't micro them they just face foward and shoot vehicles ineffectively with their front mounted machinegun. This has singlehandedly stomped out any desire I had to play this mod.

Also:
-Mortars also have far too much range and damage making trenchlines and fortifications useless(range is about half of 25lb arty emplacement).
-Crewed guns move far too slowly and their range is pathetic.
-First aid station healing is a timed ability at cost rather than a passive area regen.
-Limited and completely unimaginative commander tree's and unit upgrades.

With some more work this would be fun.

Imagine all of the fun times you've had in Company of Heroes and then turn the clock back by a couple of decades. Yes that is right... who would have thought World War 1 could be so fun (even with the easy to use cheat system). Chemical Warfare, massive trench implacements, tanks and armored cars that the A.I can't do anything about, honsestly this game is great for those looking for a good time in an RTS game

From one Game Admin (Europe at War) to another, this is a great mod for Company of Heroes. I enjoy playing games set during WWI since there are not many of them out there. I cannot wait for the upcoming improvements! The hype is real and I love it!

I tested the game. Really good mod, high production standards, good looking, plays well. Its larger in some ways of scale than the original - a good base for a WWI setting
Awesome job

what can i say about this mod turned free expansion??? ITS AMAZING. this mod incoporates everything ww1. including shell shock, gas warfare and effects, trench warfare, and so on. expect battlefield to be sodden and muddy by the end of a match. great for multiplayer and single player! also dont expect to use normal COH tactics here. charging an enemy base in no longer an option, as it means almost certain death from getting mown down by trench riflemen and machine guns.

yes! you will find yourself having to resort to WW1 tactics to actually make ground, such as shelling enemy positions with your howitzers and mortars before sending your men over the top to make ground.

the games will be long, craters will be everywhere and trenches will mark the position of a hard fought battle for only small amounts of ground.

what are you waiting for? jump over the top of standard COH and enter the age of barbed wire trenches and shell shock!

Broke my base game, GG 9/11

Other than it breaking my CoH and resulting in it not being able to play Blitzkrieg it is a very well made mod.
Trench warfare is a serious thing and TGW1918 emulates it well. Tanks come late game and if you don't have the resources to counter them with AT guns and your own tanks then you are screwed.

Don't give your troops body armor.
Give them all AT rifles and MG's.
Don't bother with Stormtroopers.
Give Engineers Demolitions.
Amass an assault force of at least 6 rifle squads and an officer to boost morale on the assault. (PIPER OPTIONAL)
Take what you can then dig in because the enemy will come at you hard with early rushes and raiding party pokes.
