Half the Battle – Blog Index

I look around me and I see a lot of new faces. Lots of green recruits looking to improve their efficiency in combat! War is dirty business, and there is a lot to learn. Luckily I have been posting gameplay advice in a semi-regular blog column called Half the Battle for a little while now, and in order for you to find these posts more easily, I organized them in a convenient index page on our wiki.

Remember that you can send me a private message on the Heroes & Generals Forum if you have ideas for topics that you would like to see discussed in Half the Battle. Stay tuned for more!

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!

A look back at the year… in fan videos

We get a whole lot of videos, pictures and screenshots created by our players this year, which is amazing. Here at H&G towers, we love to see people being creative with our content, and we hope to see plenty more of this happening next year.
