THIS is top tier CoH?

So, last night I fought my very first high-ish level player (Level 16 Wehrmacht) on Semios. I've been bouncing around between level 9-11 US for a while and was really excited to test myself against someone of alleged skill.

So, the game starts...and all the guy does is build squad after squad of Volks and move them around in one gigantic blob. Before too long he had enough Volks to make two large blobs, and then three and upgraded to Veterancy I.

And that was basically it...I made a small group of staghounds and did my best to counter with that and riflemen, but he just lit them up with panzerfausts one by one.

I tried to combat his blobbing with grenades and artillery, but I was out of munitions long before he was out of Volks.

Is this what high level CoH looks like, or did I just get unlucky? I understand there is nothing "wrong" with what he did, but it is not really in the spirit of the game is it?

This is just one of the strats players use at "high" level. Your counter was bad, Staghounds suck, you should go with bars and flamers, blob up, close in and eat his blob. He probably had medic bunker too, so killing his medics is a priority(and gets your rifles some free vet).

You should post this topic here.

edit: There's already a thread how to counter this strat.

You know blobing is really hard in this game. Especially with volks becouse BARs will eat them.

Blobs arent fun but they do require more than average skill.

Unless your british. Than you just point and click and win.

if u just want to make a rant, thats fine too, just add "rant" to topic.

Not versus cheap volks.

Aaaaanyway, if you want advice, go to the Strategy Forum. If you wonder about top tier CoH play, visit the replay section and see for yourself.
If you want to complain and rant, go to the Balance Forum.

And on that note, I'll go ahead and close this thread. (I'd move it to the strat forum, but there's plenty of threads adressing it already.)
