So if you watched me livestreaming my first ever modern RTS experience with Company of Heroes 2, you may have noticed that I... um, was clueless. I completely sucked is another way of putting it. The only reason I got through was thanks to the help and advice of some Kotaku readers — particularly F4ction and Trjn. But I left with an understanding of what makes these games so compelling to people, so I thought I'd ask: where should a beginner like me head next?
I quite like the history angle of Company of Heroes, and I like the period in which its set, so maybe I'll keep on trucking with that, even if it did seem utterly, utterly uncompromising in helping out new users (although there is apparently a tutorial section that I skipped!) Should I try something else? What general advice do you have to get me up to speed?
Let me know in the comments below.
