H&G Newspaper 12: Road to Hagenau NW81D5

From the desk of Dondergod:

Welcome to the twelfth edition of the H&G newspaper. In most newspapers, we talk about epic fights. We talk about fights where we were outmatched but still won! Great tank battles that left many tanks burning, breakthroughs with only a handful of soldiers… But sometimes, things do not go as planned. Sometimes, it is our units that are destroyed.

Retreat!!! We have lost the battle!

I am very happy to be able to say, that this was the first and the last build that sponsored WOI. We are going back to WOII since retreating is enabled once more starting next build.
However, the retreating system will not work like it did in the past. In this article you can learn how we can capture and control towns in the future.

Sound the retreat!

The battle-system consists of 4 steps: Skirmish, assault, defense (counterattack) & retreat. Here is a quick walkthrough of what happens in the various phases.

H&G Newspaper 11: Fighting for every inch IJ49D13

From the desk of Dondergod:

Welcome to this new set-up for the newspaper. After a long time I want to give this another try, but this time, I will write much shorter articles. Most often only about 1 item. As always, if you’d like to write an article yourself, you can send it to [email protected] or notify me ingame for more information.

Warfunds: How do they work?

It’s a common question ingame, on the forums and pretty much everywhere: “What on earth are Warfunds?”
In this short article I am going to try and explain what you can use them for, how you earn them and share some strategies for a solid army.

The idea for warfunds is to add a deeper layer to the strategy game as the first iteration of a system of limiting supplies. It should make the strategy part more interesting, rather than just sending your limitless supply into combat. This new build will make it an important decision if you sent your tanks into battle A or into battle B. You could send them to A… but do you really need them there?

We have come to a stage where a lost battle, can actually be a win. If you managed to destroy a lot of tanks. The ‘heroic last stand’ can help your faction greatly.

H&G Newspaper Special 2: 2012 Recap!

From the desk of Dondergod:

Welcome to this second newspaper special! A bit later than my plan was, but here it finally is! In this article I am going to take you back into 2012. Do you for example remember the time when the campaign map was only future music? I myself only joined the beta in march, so I cannot say anything about the months before. Enjoy! Note: The screenshots used have nothing to do with the builds,


Questions to Reto

I also took the liberty of asking some questions to Reto. I first wanted to give a whole list of questions to all seperate reto’s, but because of the time and their time which I didn’t want to waste, I decided to go with 3 open questions. I want to thank Reto.RedBjarne for his participation and the answers to my questions.

H&G Newspaper 9th Edition

From the desk of Dondergod:

Welcome to the ninth edition of the H&G newspaper. The 13th war of Felber has been a hard war so far in which the allies have shown that teamwork isn’t impossible in their faction. Being one of the new unofficial Allied High Command it is easy for me to write how they work. But not very easy to talk from an axis perspective. That’s why I mostly want to do a shout-out to axis generals, sent me articles! This can of course be done to [email protected]


From the desk of AHC (Allied High Command):

Comrades, thank you for participating in this war! We have fought through many battles like brothers in arms, we have cut through the enemy lines swiftly and without hesitation and we have done many great deeds that would surely be remembered! Did we give up after we lost half of France? No! We pushed onward! Did we give up at the countless battles in Den Haag and in the Netherlands? No! We pushed onward! Did we give up after we lost important front line cities? No! we pushed onward! Let us not forsake our comrades, do not give up and win Berlin! War #13 will be won by the Allies!

From the desk of GHC (German High Command):

We all know we were going to receive a damn good thrashing out there; however, keep a stiff upper lip and walk off at the final battle with dignity and pride; safe in the knowledge that at least you will never have to wear US things.
That said, Axis team, prepare for the next war and listen very carefully to the strategies told on the chat…the US luck is gone now
lead, don’t follow, because like Einstein said once “the definition of insanity is doing the same things over and over again and hoping the result to change” AXIS is not insane.

The Allies may have won the war, but we will be back. Axis is the future! Which explains… why this war the world was not ready for us yet. But next time we won’t be so kind, next time we will bring everyone on their knees who opposes us! We will destroy them with our iron fist! WE ARE AXIS!!! And we are not afraid…

H&G Newspaper 8th Edition

From the desk of Dondergod:

Welcome to the eight edition of the H&G newspaper, the last one of this year! Though, we aren’t looking back at the past year yet. I’m going to do that in a special appearance of the newspaper but I need YOU to help me! Which brings me to the first article of this week: ’1 week till New-Year’. After that I will tell you something about the wars from the past week. There is a short story from an axis general and at the end we have an article about myself playing as a hero on the axis side (hence the axis screenshots from this week). As always, if you want to see anything different, or would like to write an article yourself, you can send it to [email protected] or notify me ingame for more information.
