‘Spaatz’ update is now Live!

The new build named Spaatz (after the American general and first Chief of Staff of the US Airforce Carl Andrew ‘Tooey’ Spaatz) is live on the servers! So here’s a quick overview of the new features we’ve added for you to enjoy!

New Features

New Weapons: German P08 pistol and American M1917 Revolver

The new weapons are of almost iconic nature: German soldiers can now get the classic high-precision P08 Pistol, while the US soldiers will be able to live out their inner cowboy with the hard hitting M1917 Revolver.

Limited Strategic Resources

The ‘Spaatz’ update introduces limited army resources for the two factions. The resources for the Assault Teams are drawn from a shared ‘stockpile’ with only so and so many new resources being produced within a certain time-interval for each faction.

This gives a better balance between the two factions, as the winning strategy is no longer merely to send a massive amount of Assault Teams to the frontline, but now the Generals have to carefully consider where they deploy and direct their troops, as well as to coordinate their joined efforts better.

Ingame message system

We have made a new in-game email system, where you may send messages to other players, also when they’re not online. In order to send a message to someone you need to add him as a friend and he needs to have you added as a friend too. So now you can communicate with the other generals, fellow clan-members or other players who are not online at the same time as you.

New Mission Briefing and Battle Report screens

The campaign and the core action game missions are also brought closer together by the new mission briefing, showing what you fight for in each mission and what the objectives are. On top of that, the enhanced battle report shows details about the results of a battle, as well as give you an overview of your performance after a mission has ended.

There is of course much more happening in the build, so continue reading for more details…

Twitch livestream today at 1500CEST!

Twitch
IS it friday? YES it is. And that means we’ll do a livestream on our Twitch channel this afternoon (click here to see when this takes place in your timezone).

This time we have received a bunch of questions in the forum and we have gone through and sorted and poked people in the office for answers.

We also have a couple of guest stars lined up; Reto.Desji (not Matt Damon) will talk a bit about a new skirmish map that is in production and we might even get to see the elusive Reto.Splixxen live on cam!

And lastly, if you missed last weeks episode, take a look here:

This weeks episode will of course also be made available on our Youtube channel when it is done.

Maintenance completed ahead of schedule!

We have completed the scheduled maintenance ahead of schedule and are now ready to reopen the servers.

Alongside the backup upgrades we also added a few backend fixes that should help the strategy game run a bit smoother, including a fix for stuck supply units.

To celebrate AND boost the US morale after the last war, here is an AWESOME new video from SemperFi.

Scheduled maintenance Wednesday September 10

Wednesday September 10th, 2014 the servers will go down for maintenance, because our database-servers are being upgraded. The main reason for the upgrade is to improve how backups are made so they will have less impact on the running game.

The downtime will start at 08:00 CEST and will last until approximately 16:00 CEST.
Here is a link to World Clock so you can see when this happens in your timezone. We will of course also keep everybody updated on our Server Status Twitter here.

Should anything change in the schedule we will let you know right here & on our the Twitter channel linked above!

Everyone who has Veteran Membership running will have 1 day of Veteran Membership added to their account once the downtime is over.
