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.

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.
A brand new series of combat ribbons was introduced along with the Newgarden build, as part of the character progression tree. Inspired by the service ribbons worn by real-life servicemen, combat ribbons are decorations earned for achievements in combat. They can be leveled up, unlocking new weapons, modifiers and combat badges in the process.
The new build ‘Newgarden’ is online with a lot of exciting new stuff! We hope you will all help us welcome new players and community members to the game.

Gentlemen! I am pleased to announce that very shortly a new character progression tree will be implemented as part of the coming Newgarden build. This is a feature which has been widely requested by our players for a very long time, and one which shall bring more depth to the Heroes & Generals gaming experience. It consists of a completely revised system for character types and ranks, equipment, combat ribbons and badges.
