7 MILLION Heroes and Generals!

We have just crossed the line of 7 MILLION registered Heroes & Generals! That is a lot of players, and we are very happy to see so many players in the game! Thank you for your support and we hope you’re having great fun with the game.

For a Danish developer-team 7 million players is a cool and magic milestone as it is more than there are people living in our home country. To pass this milestone really boosts our motivation in the effort to deliver a deep, fun and unique war game for our established and dedicated community and new players all over the world.
– Jacob Andersen, Game Director at Reto-Moto.

With players from 173 countries we TRULY do have a World War going and have players from more countries than what actually participated in WW2!

To celebrate this magic milestone we think that everyone should have a small present!
So here is a voucher for 3 DAYS FREE VETERAN MEMBERSHIP. As this weekend is the President’s Day holiday in the US, the voucher will stay active until early Tuesday morning, giving everybody the chance to redeem it and play.

Weapon and ribbon tweaks coming with Adams update

Infantry! Infantry everywhere! After showing you the new M16 MGMC, the GAZ-AAA and the SdKfz 7/1, there are also a handful of other tweaks incoming for the infantry! In the coming update named Adams (after the American hero Lucian Adams) a number of tweaks and adjustments will enhance infantry gameplay.

WEAPON AND GUNPLAY TWEAKS

We have been digging through the stats for a while, listened (and read) a lot of feedback & talked to a number of players, and we have decided on a few tweaks to help improve the feel of the gunplay in the game. Most notably we are adjusting a number of values around the semi-auto rifles (the Gewehr 43, M1 Garand & Tokarev SVT-40) to make them more valuable as weapons for both new players and veterans.

Half-track with quad mounted .50 cal machineguns. Adams update brings US mobile AA gun!

In the coming Adams update (after the American hero Lucian Adams) comes the M16 Multiple Gun Motor Carriage mobile AA gun. The vehicle was known as the “Kraut-mower”, “Meat-Chopper”, the devil has many names. The vehicle was beloved by the troops and rightfully so. It provided the infantry with mobile fire support from its four .50 caliber M2 “Ma Deuce” heavy machine guns, and could be used as both in an anti aircraft or anti materiel role. This new mobile AA gun is the US counter-part to the previously revealed Soviet GAZ-AAA, and German SdKfz 7/1


Despite its awesome firepower, the vehicle is still vulnerable. Remember to support this valuable battlefield unit.

Incoming light tank camouflage will help you hide in the terrain!

It’s a bird… it’s a plane… It’s a camouflaged light tank! In the coming update named Zhukov (after the Soviet Marshal Georgy Konstantinovich Zhukov) comes camouflage for a selection of light tanks.

To succeed on the battlefield as a light tank driver you should always try to stack the odds in your favor by utilizing your strengths compared to heavier opponents. Being smaller, faster and more maneuverable allows you to better utilize terrain to hide yourself and move into flanking positions. Stay mobile and do not be afraid to relocate once your position has been compromised. The option to apply camouflage to your light tank will help you to stay undetected.

Comrades! Our factories are hard at work producing new tools which you can use to crush our enemies! In the coming update named Zhukov (after the Soviet Marshal Georgy Konstantinovich Zhukov) comes the T-70 Soviet light tank.

The Soviet T-70 model 1942 is a very well-armored light tank. It is protected in some parts by 60mm thick (turret front) sloped armor making it very hard to destroy for enemy light tanks. It is armed with a 45mm 20K/L46 main gun and a coaxial 7.62mm machine gun.
