Official wiki editing contest!

We have teamed up with Curse and Gamepedia and moved our official wiki to Gamepedia. We mentioned this in Friday’s Devstream on our Twitch channel.

So to celebrate this partnership we are running a wiki-editing contest with our friends at Gamepedia so head right on over to the official wiki at:

http://HeroesAndGenerals.Gamepedia.com

We hope that you will help us bring the wiki forward so it can be used as the goto place for hard facts about the game, tutorials both for new players and specific vehicles or character classes, weapon specifications, vehicle armor, combined arms tactics, map strategies etc.

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.

‘Rommel’ update is now Live!

The new build named Rommel (after the German field marshal Erwin J. Rommel) is live on the servers! So here’s a quick overview of the new features we’ve added for you to enjoy!

New Features

Generals and Officers

We have expanded the ranks all the way to Field Marshal and made major improvements to the strategic gameplay. Generals and other commanding officers are now characters that equip Assault Teams, starting with their own branch of the armed forces and then expanding to other branches. Read more about the Generals here.

New Weapons: FG42 & M1 Carbine

In the last build we re-introduced the paratroopers and a LOT of players asked for paratrooper specific weapons, these are here now; the German Fallschirmjägergewehr 42 and the American M1 Carbine. If you want to know more about these awesome new toys, take a look here.

New victory conditions

Looking at the map you will notice that there are more important cities marked with a star symbol (★). These are the strategically important cities that determine the winner of the war. To learn more about how this new feature works, take a look at this blog post.

Vehicle Wrench tool

For a long time a heavily damaged tank has just been a useless chunk of metal, most tankers would abandon them and try their luck on foot, but now you haev a choice! The repair wrench is available for Tankers, Infantry and Recon and can be used to repair damaged vehicles. This takes time and is best performed away from danger. If you want to know more about this terrific tool, read more here.

Official Twitch channel

We have started a Friday devstream on Twitch, where we will broadcast live from Reto-Moto HQ and show new features, answer player questions and maybe show off what we are working on for the coming builds. In case you missed our first episode, you can check out the recording on youtube here.

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

Rommel Feature: Multiple Capitals

In the upcoming build named Rommel we are introducing a new addition to the strategic layer of the game – Expanded Victory Conditions.


We are changing the condition for winning a war in Rommel. Before we only had one capital per faction, and you could win by capturing the enemy capital. But now we have expanded the campaign map to a much larger part of Europe and there are now 15 capitals (and other strategically important cities) in total.
