How to Get to Level 16 in Company of Heroes

Source

The heat of the battle and the ultimate quest for true glory. Anyone who has played Company of Heroes has witnessed the titans of the game standing high on the leader boards and the quest for this feat can be very challenging.  Strategy, micro management, fast units.  These qualities can take you to the top with any faction but it takes much practice and persistence.

Strategy

A basic build order helps in maintaining stable and controllable units but a game build order will not always find success. When playing as the Americans one must decide the course of weapons support center or barracks. Each with different advantages and each with a different build order.


Barracks

  1. Rifle
  2. Rifle
  3. Rifle
It is important to not build an excess of rifle squads in order to maintain manpower and not have an uncontrollable blob. If the map is a map with high munitions an extra rifle squad helps as well as the upgrades at the barracks.  Where as if the map is gas based an armored car or a sherman can be more useful.

WSC

  1. MG
  2. Sniper
  3. Sniper 
  4. MG

Weapon support center requires more tactics and micro but if done properly it can be very devastating to enemy infantry. This tactic requires for quick teching in to an armored car so controlling fuel.

Adaptation 

It is important to see the battlefield and adapt to change your units in order to suit the best possible counter. If vehicles come on to the battlefield plan of getting at.

Mines:  Mines are key and most of the top players use them extensively.  Always plant mines in choke points and watch as the enemy units crumble as they enter your territory.  This is a great way to keep solid map control and obtain resources.

Micro

Company of Heroes revolves around the concept of not losing squads making your advantage to keep your squads alive as well as strive to kill enemy squads.  Watching your units and retreating at the correct time is key.

Med Stations:  These stations recover casualties and create new, cheaper, squads.  One of these is great but if your see too many squads that are hard to maintain it might not be the best tactic.

Always Use Cover:  This is one of the most important aspects of the game and using cover may be the difference between winning and losing.  Cover gives you the advantage and COH is all about obtaining advantages.

Fast Units

The last tip I can give is to build units as quickly as you can.  As soon as the manpower comes available for the next unit build it.

Getting to level 16 is very challenging but it is a great achievement one you get there.  Practice makes perfect and stick to these tips and guild-lines and you will be there in no time.
