One of the most interesting and also most visible features we are getting ready to roll out is the Open Faction Fighting. We talked a bit about this in the last Devstream.
What does it mean?
You no longer have to commit to a faction before even playing your first battle. From the next update (Spaatz Addon #1) you can play Staged Battles (previously called random training missions) for as long as you want and you can add soldiers from all factions into the matchmaker if you just want to play now!
Tomorrow, November 11th is Veterans Day in the United States, and also observed as Remembrance Day in the British Commonwealth and as Armistice Day in France, Belgium and other countries. This day marks the end of the first World War in Western Europe when the armistice took effect at eleven o’clock in the morning — the “eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month” of 1918.
And while this day is not observed in Denmark (we were neutral in the First World War), we thought it would be fitting time to give all players from the greenest recruit to the most grizzled veterans a Free 24-hour Veteran Membership.
So If you have signed up for the game AND completed an action game before we midnight today (CET), you will get 24 hours free veteran membership. If you already have an active Veteran Membership, additional 24 hours will be added.
If you have been observing the supply queues over the last couple of days you might have noticed production being adjusted up and down over time.
Tuesday TeeVee, ehh. Tuesday Tube? Hmm.. Tuesday Thunder? Nahh.. Tuesday FAN VIDEO!
Sch1ll1 just send this vid to us at Reto HQ and we thought it would be a pity not to show it to the rest of you as well!
NB: The faint sobbing you might hear in the background is me crying over not being even half as good. /Reto.Robotron3000
As you have probably seen we have teamed up with Curse and Gamepedia and moved our official wiki to Gamepedia. To celebrate this major boost to our wiki, we decided to run a wiki-editing contest with our friends at Gamepedia and now the winners are here!
The progress the wiki has seen has been fantastic and it has improved to a point, where there are so many hints, hidden gems, guides and tips in the wiki, that if you can remember them all, you’ll be close to invincible in the game.

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!
There is of course much more happening in the build, so continue reading for more details…
It’s time to save up fuel and ration the food. Everyone must do their share for the war effort! Because in the coming Spaatz build, both factions will experience limited resources, giving a new dimension to the Strategy Game. How will this affect gameplay? Read on!
