Quesada is online!

The new build named Quesada (after the US General Elwood Richard “Pete” Quesada) is live on the servers! So here’s a quick overview of the new features we’ve added for you to enjoy!

New Features

Paratroopers returning to battle

The Paratrooper class is now back! Their planes are now polished and looks awesome, and there is an AI that controls the plane, to let all paratroopers fight. Read more about the paratroopers AND their uniform personalizations here.

Uniform Variations

You can now customize your soldiers with new uniforms, as we have introduced uniform variations for some of the classes. In this update the US Recon, US Paratrooper, German Tank Crew, German Recon and German Paratrooper characters can get new uniforms, while the rest of the classes will have to wait a bit for variations to be added in future updates.

New ammo types for vehicles

In this update we have started to add more ammo types for the vehicles, plus we have updated the user interface, to make it easier to see which ammo types you have available, how fast it reloades and how you change between them when you’re engaged in battle. It’s not all vehicles that now have more ammo types available, but try to log in and see if there are new explosive toys available for your favourite vehicle. In the coming updates we’ll add more.

Heroes & Generals coming soon to Steam

As many, many players have requested and asked for we are now coming to the Steam platform. Take a look at our Steam page here, and stay tuned for more info! You can already grab one of our avatars for your steam profile by clicking here.

More weapon personalization

The US Bazooka and the German Panzerschreck now have a new set of personalization options and we have also made a special “Gott mit uns” variation of the Gewehr 43, as well as a “Death or Glory” variation of the M1 Garand. Take a look at the Panzerschreck and Bazooka personalizations here.

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

Feature: Personalize your Bazookas & Panzerschrecks!

Tired of looking at the same old Bazooka? Want to stand out from the Anti-Tank crowd?
Then look no further! In the coming build ‘Quesada’ we have added a new batch of weapon personalizations, this time for the Bazookas and Panzerschrecks.

Continue reading to see the rest of the awesome new paint-jobs for the anti tank weapons!

Feature: Paratroopers are coming back!

LOOK UP!

Paratroopers are getting ready to jump! In the next build named Quesada (after the United States Army Airforce general Elwood Richard Quesada) paratroopers will fly back into action!

Jump into action!

If you have an Infantry soldier at rank 7 or above you can transfer him to the paratroopers! Paratroopers are not as heavily armed as other soldiers and cannot carry Machineguns, Panzerschreck/Bazookas so if you have purchased a lot of heavy equipment for your soldier, it might be an idea to play another soldier up to rank 7 and convert him. Or if you don’t have the time for that you can buy an academy trained paratrooper for gold. Keeping at least one normal infantry soldier is always a good idea to help minimize waiting times when EVERYBODY wants to play with a specific type of soldier.

As promised we would make a draw between all who participated in the event for 3 x SteelSeries 9H headsets, and the lucky winners are:


 

HEADSET WINNERS:
Artctic,
Durchausdurch,

We have contacted all three using the email-address they registered and when we have their physical addresses, SteelSeries will ship the headsets to them. Should they not reply before the 1st of July we’ll make another draw and contact the next.

Furthermore, the emails with 3-day Veteran Membership voucher codes went out Wednesday. If you participated in the stress test and believe that you’re entitled to a voucher code due to this, but haven’t received it yet: please check your spam-folder and otherwise contact support.

Help us crash our servers TONIGHT (Tuesday) and WIN SteelSeries headsets

The winners of the SteelSeries 9H Headsets will be announced on this blog one of the coming days and we’ll notify the winners by email.

A while ago our friends at the Yogscast created and published some hilarious videos, which caused our servers to roll over and die due to a massive influx of new players. In the meantime we have optimized the code and added more hardware, but we really need your help to test how much the servers now can handle.

So in collaboration with the SteelSeries community we invite you to come and do your best to crash our servers on:

D-Day Veteran Weekend Winners – Part 2!

Allright! It appears that we had miscommunicated the rules for the contest internally, so instead of extracting a list of the players who cap’ed most we extracted a list based on characters.

This is of course wrong and a terrible mistake from our side – especially as it’s our first contest ever. So to make up for this we’ll let all the previous winners keep their prizes and we will now publish the correct list and also give the “real” winners a prize – even if that means that the same people might receive the same prize once again.

So the “real” winners of the D-Day Veteran Weekend Capture Competition with the “real” stats are:

FIRST PLACE:

warlordrush

With a Capture Score of 493.
Winning: 90-day veteran membership & 4000 gold!
