War Bonds continues

warbonds_ver04 Our payment solutions has been a bit broken since we launched it, but everything should now be up and running (except American Express and JCB).

More than 600 War Bonds has been bought from various dedicated community members. Thanks for the support – this is greatly appreciated!

It might not be 100% clear to all what War Bonds are, and how they work, so Reto.RedBjarne has made a quite thorough blog-post explaining what War Bonds are all about. If you just want the short version you should read on here:

When you buy War Bonds in the game, you support the development of Heroes & Generals and in return, we will give you a monthly in-game interest back in gold, AND buy back your War Bonds after 6 months.

For example: In the first series of War Bonds, you pay 955 gold for a War Bond worth 1000 gold. In return you get 110 gold each month in interest + we buy the War Bond back from you after six months for 1000 gold. So, all in all you get: 6 * 110 + (1000-955) = 705 gold for buying one War Bond (and you’ll also have the 955 gold back you gave for it in the first place).

If we, for any reason, have to reset the servers and the stats at any point you still keep the War Bonds you’ve purchased.

War Bonds can be bought in the in-game shop.

Besides, all the gold you choose to buy with ‘real’ money during the the Closed Beta will be refunded as gold to your account if stats are reset during the Closed Beta. Only exception to this is the gold you have spend on buying War Bonds – but the War Bonds will still work after any resets and in the Open Beta and through launch.

 

That’s all for now. Remember that you can follow us on facebook, twitter, YouTube or Google+ for videos, realtime news and updates.
