Well they just stay there uninstalled.. The new version says I have the tales of valor. So i'm guessing they will go away when i restart steam or sometime in the future.

Yeah all you need is the new steam version

What about the expansions? Do we need to re-install them or anything or just leave them as they are and only download & install the new steam version?

You always "have the expansions", regardless of actually owning them or not. The content is always there. You will have to own the expanions on Steam for them to work though, as your old Relic account is no more. It's directly linked to your Steam profile now.

Just to confirm, this new version is fully working and integrated? Don't want to download it if it's something still in progress that Steam hasn't finished.

This version is not fully working. It crashes and has bugs and in no way replicates the functionality of the existing game. The existing Relic one last for another month. I wouldn't delete Relic version until they fix Steam.

With the Steam version
* You lose your old Relic account and all its history
* You lose your friends, some of whom I've had since the start.
* You can't have multiple profiles so you can't play as an individual and part of a clan
* You can't see what level of game is be hosted v "comps" from the game lobby - eg easy, normal, hard, exp or who is playing in it.
* It does not record stats for "Comp" games, so you only stay level 1
* You can't swap ends for Axis and Allies for Starting Positions any more (in Skirmish)
* Lots of people can't use Multiplayer or Operations - they just crashes.

That's just the issues from trying to play 3 or 4 games

Am i grateful - no way. They just killed a really good game.
Why didn't they change the business model?
If they couldn't fund a reliable server service from just sales of the game, why didn't they just introduce a small annual license or subscription fee. I would have paid just to have continuity.
They didn't even ask the community if they would support that, how hard is that to do, we are all online FFS!!

What I really think is SEGA have done this on purpose to screw the game so that you are forced to buy COH2. Up to today I would have bought COH2 anyway, but now after what they have done with COH1 I'm having second thoughts. Whats the point, they'll end up screwing that too. This really sucks.

The last post shows a complete misunderstanding of the issue. The new version of CoH 1 is a 'preview' version. SEGA isn't shutting down the original servers, Ubisoft is, as they now own the company that hosts them. The original servers are being shut down in early May.

SEGA and Relic have gone out of their way to provide new Steamworks support for this 7-year old game so that you can continue to play multiplayer with 'as many features as possible' from the old multiplayer.

They didn't choose to remove features. They had to totally rework the game to support Steamworks. It was this or no online multiplayer at all.
