The new update named ‘Devyatayev – Squad’ (named after the Soviet soldier Mikhael Petrovich Devyatayev ) is here! Here you can get a quick overview of all the new features we’ve added for you! The Videolog will start you off and we then continue with more details below!
The Devyatayev update brings the long awaited new Squad Feature, which actively supports and improves tactical teamplay. No player will ever be alone on the battlefield anymore, no matter if you just started playing or are a die-hard Veteran!
In the upcoming Devyatayev update (named after the Soviet pilot Mikhael Petrovich Devyatayev) we are introducing a new Soviet vehicle The T-20 Komsomolets! This is a tracked vehicle capable of carrying men and equipment into battle.
The new T-20 Komsomolets is available as a Terrain Vehicle for infantry (like the US M29 Weasel).
Looking through various lesser-known vehicles of WW2, the soviet T-20 stands out as a versatile terrain vehicle and artillery tractor. The added machinegun, as well as a bit of armor, gives it the option to defend itself against infantry!

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
An oft requested feature for the game is to make it easier to play alongside your friends in the same battle. This is something we have also wanted to build for a long time and now the time is here for the first version to make its public appearance. So in the upcoming build ‘Jefferson’ you will be able to create a squad, grab your friends and join match-making as a group.
Press ‘Create Squad’ on the bottom of the Characters page and see what happens
