Now are we talking like CoH? Or MoH / CoD?

We have to ask what going 3D would accomplish? Would going 3D improve the gameplay? The only thing I see concerning gameplay is that it would remove the thought process the player has to make to turn a 2D map with elevations in 3D in his head to position his troops. Going 3D can also break the gameplay if it's poorly implemented. For instance I dislike the camera controls in Combat Mission or Achtung Panzer. The player has to devote a big part of his energy to controlling the camera instead of actually playing the game. I'd say the 3D control in Company of Heroes or Men of War doesn't really get in the way of playing and would be the way to go. Would it increase the appeal, sales and the player base? Sure the era of 2D is somewhat over, although some games like Terraria pull it off by compensating graphics with the ability to be creative and a sense of freedom. The bottom line what's selling the game is not its graphics, it's the ideas, the possibility to recreate a fun experience everytime you play. In this era of social media and of being constantly in touch with people over the Internet, Close combat has to embrace multiplayer to survive. That's how Company of Heroes maintained its longevity for 6 years or so. An amazing multiplayer. I am appaled to see developpers choosing to invest ressources in the form, the visuals of the game before adressing the multiplayer. More so, one big appealing factor of Close Combat has been its warmaps. So i say, instead of going 3D, KEEP IT 2D BUT CREATE A LIVE WARMAP FOR ALL PLAYERS TO FIGHT ON. THAT WOULD DRAW PLAYERS IN!!!

CC went 3D with Achtung Panzer. It is only missing the individual soldier modelling and statistics because in AP all that stuff is on squad level basis.

I don't really see the point. Why fix what isn't broken? Anybody who's been around long enough with this game series knows that 2D does just fine. For me, that's even part of the reason why I still play it.

In August of 2004, Zappi, Homba, Bambam887, RedScorpion and MOOXE all pitched
in to create this Close Combat site. I would to thank all the people who have visited and
found this site to thier liking. I hope you had time to check out some of the great Close Combat
mods and our forums. I'd also like to thank all the members of our volunteer staff that have
helped over the years, and all our users that contributed to this site!
