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.
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.
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.
In the upcoming Rommel build we are introducing two new weapons: The American M1 Carbine & the German Fallschirmjägergewehr 42. We did talk a bit about them in our live twitch.tv broadcast on Friday, and if you missed the show, you can catch it here on our Youtube channel.
SO let’s start with the new German toy, the:
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.
