Intelligence Bulletin Vol 2 * No 34

intelligencebulletingvol02no34 We are recruiting! This time not Heroes for the frontline or Generals for the campaign, but developers for our team!

We are looking at ramping up the team quite a bit and currently there are seven (7) new positions open at our office in Copenhagen. So go look at the jobs section, and see if you find something of interest and remember to spread the word to your friends.

The Eisenhower build is now on the stable server, and getting closer to the live server. And to all of you waiting for a beta-key – as soon as the Eisenhower build has stabilized on the live server we’ll invite a massive number of players (including sending a huuuuge number of new Beta-keys) to join us in another server stress test. It might take a couple of weeks from now before we’re ready for the stress test, but meanwhile we’ll continue to send new keys once a week… So hang in there – you all WILL have the chance to play H&G soon!
