We want you to tell us your war stories – your stories of being a soldier in Heroes & Generals.
And we want you to tell us these stories either in the form of a video or as a written short story.
The creators of the best videos and the best short story will be awarded with gold and exclusive prizes!
You will find all the details on this competition below.
Make a video – win prizes
We want to see your war stories! You can tell a story about any topic you want – and you can do it just about any way you want to.
Shoot a bunch of in game footage and cut it together to create an engaging video with a fun, serious, action filled, comedic or any other kind of storyline. Or make it into an animated movie, a rotoscoping movie, a silent movie with intertitles – go crazy, go wild but most importantly be creative!
To make sure you guys have enough time for this challenge, we are giving you a full month to create your video! Deadline for submission is Friday, June 30th.
Videos submitted should not be more than five minutes in length and they must be original work created specifically for this competition.
Submit your video by posting a link to it in the forum thread on our official forums. You can only enter one video.

The story of the video above
The video above is a ‘for the fun of it’ thing that we made in our spare time together with the very skilled YouTuber Atway.
We challenged Atway to do a mini movie using only the tutorial bots as participants. Had Reto.Hades write a fun script, and let Reto.Gargamel release his inner drill sergeant. The result is just an experiment, but it made us realise that we would love for you the players to tell fictional stories within the Heroes & Generals. Hence this competition.
