Special Assignment Weekend Winners!

UPDATE 9th of October 2014: It appears that there were some issues with some of the stats in the Infantry contest and the Fighter Pilot contest, so we have now updated the results with new data. The Infantry contest counted caps/cap assists for all characters and not just infantry, where the new list is for infantry characters only. The Fighter Pilot contest counted how many players (pilots) you have killed who are sitting in a plane, where the new list shows how much damage you have inflicted on enemy fighter planes (each plane has 1000 hp).

The top-3 results are almost the same, and we will make sure compensate the ones who are no longer in top-3. The reason for this screw up from us was due to bad communication internally here at the office. We hope you can bear with us and forgive us.

What a fantastic weekend! We have pulled the numbers from the servers, and are proud to announce the winners of the Special Assignment Weekend. CONGRATULATIONS to the winners of the Steam Packs, and thanks to all who joined and made this special weekend memorable. :)

Special Assignment Weekend – Win Steam Packs

UPDATE Tuesday the 7th of October: We’re doing an extra “cheat-review” today of the players with the highest score in each assignment to be sure that the numbers are legit, so we will probably not be able to announce the winners today – we aim to do it tomorrow instead.

UPDATE Monday the 6th of October: The contest is now over, and we’ll announce the winners tomorrow (Tuesday)!

This weekend we’re trying something new, while we wait for the coming Spaatz update! We’re running 6 Special Assignments, where the top-3 performers in each assignment will win one of the new Steam Packs, giving loads of Weapons, Vehicles, Characters, Gold and much more.

We will also give players who have registered an account and played at least one battle before Friday the 26th of September a free 3-day Veteran Membership for the weekend to make up for the server-downtime we had due to the DDoS attack two weeks ago.

The event starts at Friday the 3rd of October at 09:00 US EDT / 15:00 CEST and ends at Monday the 6th of October at 09:00 US EDT / 15.00 CEST – click the dates to see when this is in your timezone.

ASSIGNMENTS

There is an assignment for each character class:

Infantry: Cap the maps!

Capture and assist in capturing as many control points as possible as an Infantryman. We will count caps for all your Infantry soldiers, so you may select whichever fits the tasks at hand.

Tank Crew: Tank Crusher!

Destroy as many enemy tanks as possible with your own tanks as a Tank Crewman. Light tanks, medium tanks, heavy tanks and tank destroyers all counts equally. We will count tank-kills for all your Tank Crewmen and it doesn’t matter which of your tanks you operate.

Fighter Pilot: Dogfight!

Destroy as many enemy fighter planes as possible with your own plane as a Fighter Pilot. We will count fighter-plane kills for all your Fighter Pilots, but transport planes doesn’t count.

Recon: Marksman’s challenge!

Do as many headshots as possible as Recon (and yes – we will check for cheats and cheaters will be banned as usual according to our ban policy). We will count headshots for all your Recon soldiers.

Paratrooper: Secure the objectives!

Capture as many objectives as possible as a Paratrooper. Only O1, O2 and O3 counts, and only on Assault missions. And again – we will count objective caps for all your Paratroopers.

Officer/General: Seek and Destroy!

Destroy as many resources as possible with one of your Assault Teams. All enemy casualties caused by your Assault Teams counts equally no matter which resource type. In this assignment we’re counting “per Assault Team”, meaning that it’s not a matter of having many AT’s, but a matter of having the AT that causes as many enemy casualties as possible. So all Assault Team owners have a chance to win.

PRIZES

For each assignment we will give the following packs to the top-3 performers:

1st place: Ultimate Heroes & Generals Pack (US faction/German faction)
2nd place: All Heroes Pack (US faction/German faction)
3rd place: Tank Crew Starter Pack (US faction/German faction)

The winners will be announced on our blog next week and will be contacted directly using the email they’ve registered their account with.

Steam Packs

As a new or veteran player you might have visited the in-game store and looked at all the cool stuff you could unlock and buy, but don’t feel you have the time to unlock and earn the credits for it – or maybe you’ve wondered what you should buy to get started on a new career.

So we have created 2 x 4 packs (4 per faction) loaded with Characters, Weapons, Vehicles, Gold, Veteran Membership and other cool stuff – all with a considerable discount compared to if you were to buy the items in the packs individually for gold.

These packs are now for sale on Steam as ‘Downloadable Content’, and they all exist in two versions: one for the US and one for the German faction – look under “Downloadable Content For This Game” just below the green “Play Game” button on our Steam store page.

Infantry Rookie Pack

A great starter pack for Heroes & Generals, that gives you a fully equipped Infantryman and an All Terrain Vehicle, plus gold and a Veteran Membership that boosts your XP-, ribbonpoints-, credits- and warfunds-earnings for 7 days.
US faction / German faction

Tank Crew Starter Pack

If you wish to start a career as Tanker in Heroes & Generals, then this pack is for you. It gives you a Tank Crewman with a selection of tanks and a tank destroyer, plus a submachine gun, a handgun and a wrench for repairing tanks. Besides you will also get a good amount of gold and a 14-day Veteran Membership.
US faction / German faction

All Heroes Pack

If you wish to be able to play all roles on the battlefields and don’t want to play for weeks or months to unlock all the Heroes and their weapons, equipment and vehicles, then this pack is for you as it gives you 5 characters with loads of gear and vehicles. It also includes a substantial amount of Gold and a 90-day Veteran Membership.
US faction / German faction

Ultimate Heroes & Generals Pack

This pack enables you to get the full Heroes & Generals experience, where you can play all roles as Heroes on the battlefields AND command Assault Teams as a General without first having to spend hours, weeks and even months of playtime to progress your characters and unlock weapons, equipment and vehicles. You will also get a huge amount of gold to allow for extra premium purchases and Veteran Membership for a whole year (365 days). This pack contains over 200 EUR/250 USD worth of in-game items, Veteran Membership and gold!
US faction / German faction

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.
