Why is this game 'kinda' not popular?

Company of Heroes series

ok...for non-gamers and gamers alike, this might be the first time u hear of this game and u never will again if ur not really into the RTS(Real time strategy)game genre.Frankly, i dont know why its not popular maybe it's not popular in Malaysia?. It's a almost realistic,very pretty,and it's from Relic published by THQ!. It's THQs change of pace from medival RTS to space RTS (Dawn of War series). Basicly, company of heroes is an rts where u chose either allied(americans or commenwealth) or axis(panzer elites or nazi germany) sides (yes its a WW2 game). From there u can chose three commander trees.For example, i choose the Panzer elites which is an axis faction . It has three commander trees and they are the SCORCHED EARTH tactics, LUFFWAFFE(germanys air force) tactics and the TANK DESTROYER tactics. Of course each tree has their own pros and cons. It depends on the commander whether you come out of a game victorious or under utter defeat. Anyway , the game is kinda simple yet complicated in its own way.But it's fun to play none the less. So, why is it not popular like warcraft 3 or starcraft or Command and conquer? Well this game kinda states that every unit u have is very valuable. Unlike in Red Alert 3, if i were to lose an Apocalypse tank i'd just say " oh well, i can always make a new one" but if i were to lose a Hetzer or a Panther tank in CoH, i'd go "Oh My God, How'd that happen? fuckin tommy bastards! i m gonna fuckin kill u!!! etc" . My point is victory in this game is not solely determined on the number of ur troops, its determined by how u control them or how effective that unit is against other units, kinda like rock paper scissors .Thats why reason 1, probably. what's this? my eyes....arrgghh so heavy. lol . i'll edit this post if i have time or if i am ever interested to do so. this post is kinda lacking lots of stuff .
