In the coming Walker update we are moving some ribbons around and adding a bunch of new ones.
We are rolling the rifle ribbons into a new “Infantry Assault” ribbon and the tank ribbons into one “Armor Assault” ribbon.
But what about my progress on the removed ribbons? We’ll take your progress from the individual ribbons and ADD them together, so a lot of you might start the new ribbon at a very high level, we thought this is the most fair thing to do.
ARMOR & INFANTRY ASSAULT
The two new ribbons introduced are the main ribbons for Infantry and Tankers and progress in these ribbons are unlocks weapons and vehicles in the different categories.
The new build named Newgarden (after the American Major General Paul Newgarden) is live on the servers! And here is a short update explaining the new features we’ve added for you to enjoy!

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.
As an extension to the matchmaking work required by ‘Play with Friends‘ and as part of the general effort in making the game easier to understand for new players we are working on adding tiers to matchmaking as has been requested by the community for a LONG time. So without wasting further keystrokes, take it away Reto.Hal9K (tier 3) – Reto.Robotron3000
To help avoid the situation where first-time players are being completely overrun by more experienced players, we are working on adding tiers into the action game matchmaking. This is also a benefit for the veterans, as they won’t be as frustrated with people new to the game who might not yet understand what “NMY pz3 at B2 app. B3” means. :-)
In the first iteration we will stick with two tiers, cleverly named: Tier 1 & Tier 2
