Today at 1500 CEST (click the time to find it in your timezone) we will do our first live twitch.tv broadcast from Reto-Moto Headquarters where we will talk about features in the upcoming Rommel build AND take questions from the community.
IF you have a question about the upcoming Rommel build that you like to ask the Game Director here’s how to do it:
Just pop into the Twitch.tv channel here AND send your question as a private message to the user ‘heroesandgenerals’ that owns the channel. We will sort through the questions as they come in and answer as many as we can related to the Rommel build. If you write your question in the subject line and with any extra clarifications in the text below you will have a better chance of getting YOUR question answered ;-)
Here is the link to the stream:
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.
In the upcoming build named Rommel we are introducing a new piece of equipment – The Adjustable (or Monkey) Wrench.
The Wrench is a very versatile tool that can be used to repair vehicles from bicycles over cars and half tracks to tanks.
Heroes & Generals! Ladies & Gentlemen! We have pulled the numbers from the servers, counted the captures and assists and added everything together, so we can announce the winners of our Capture Competition.

CONGRATULATIONS not only to those who won, but also everybody else that joined in and made this a fun event for everybody :-)

Veteran Weekend Contest!
– Capture the objectives!
Notice that silence? You can hear flies buzzing. There are thousands of boots lined up on the landing strip but no movement, not a sound. The atmosphere is heavy with the authoritative presence of the lone character who is just now stepping out of his personal transport. Who commands such obedience and discipline? The General, that’s who!
With the imminent arrival of the aptly-named Rommel build, the time has come to unveil a major change in the strategy portion of Heroes & Generals: namely, that Officers and Generals will now be actual characters, with direct command of their own Assault Teams. This means new ranks will now become available. So how does it work? Read on.
Thursday 24 July 2014 the servers will go down for maintenance, because our servers are being moved so when required we are able to directly add more server capacity so everyone is able to play!
The downtime will start at 04.45
06.00 UTC and will last until approximately 12.00 UTC.
Should anything change in the schedule we will let you know right here!
Everyone who has Veteran Membership running will have 1 day of Veteran Membership added to their account once the downtime is over.
Update [2014.07.16 16.15 UTC]:
The servers hamsters have been fed and some of them replaced but the servers are back to duty! As a thank you for your patience everyone has a 2 day Veteran Membership added to his account. Those who already had it running, will have 2 days extra added. Thank you for your patience and see you in battle!
Update [2014.07.16 12.30 UTC]:
The servers are still misbehaving. We currently can’t provide an estimated time when the servers will be back up. We will keep you informed on all platforms.
Thank you for your patience.
Today we experienced multiple server issues which lead to imminent downtimes. Despite IT’s efforts to solve the issue today the servers will remain offline for tonight.
It appears to be that one of our hardware components is experiencing technical difficulties. The servers will be back up and running as fast as possible tomorrow.
We are deeply sorry for the inconvenience and will make this up to you. Those who have ribbon boosters and veteran memberships running will not have to worry about their lost time.
We thank you for your understanding and patience with us.
