I'm quite pro (not trying to be elitist, but I spent a lot of time in it), one of the few RTS games I actually took the time to be very competitive at. I know almost everything there is to know about it. Me and Evan (WNxJackerooSundown) still play this frequently, we dominant in 2vs2, and have gotten others to buy it and play it with us. I own all three editions too.
Also, it should be noted that if you only want to play multiplayer, then the Tales of Valor edition is the best one to purchase. It gives you all 4 armies, all the operations and the additional custom troops and vehicles. The only things the other two (Opposing Fronts and vanilla) give are campaign missions. While they can be fun, once you've beaten them once, you don't have an interest to do it again, AKA no replay value.

My only concern is that CoH 2 will be a flop due to the fact that THQ let go a ton of its employees and was having finacial issues if I recall correctly. Either way, I'm excited for it and really hope it lives up to the name of being the best RTS ever.
Hey Eric, I can recruit to make a section if we don't have enough people here aswell.
Oh, and I'm a Panzer Elite player and Evan is Wehrmacht. While I can play all factions well, I main in PE.
One last thing, if you guys aren't 'godly' at this game, it's no big deal at all. Evan and myself don't care if we win or lose, we just like to have fun. So if you share the same outlook feel free to go primary regardless of your skill level, no one in CoH will badger you over it and if a section was to be created, I'd see to it personally to make sure that isn't even a factor.
My steam is: wilshirewilz
I have 45.8 hours of game time in the past 2 weeks alone.
*If you're wondering why I only have 156 hours total, it's because I used to play it off discs and not on Steam. When I lost my discs when I moved, I bought it on Steam.
