Roaring engines fill the sky as three new fighter planes take off with the release of the ‘Planes & Ladders’-update – and be prepared to compare your performance against other players in the new leaderboards.
New Medium Fighters for all factions
With the addition of new fighter planes all three factions now have two Medium Fighter planes besides a Reconnaissance airplane and a Heavy Fighter. Bringing the total number of planes to 12
The three new planes in the ‘Planes & Ladders’-update are:
- The Soviet Medium Fighter Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-3
- The German Medium Fighter Messerschmitt Bf 109D-1
- The US Medium Fighter Seversky P-35A
The new planes are placed as the first Medium Fighters you unlock after Reconnaissance planes, and they are easier to control, so it eases the learning curve for new pilots in their path toward higher tier planes.
Leaderboards are back
You can now compare your performance with other soldiers across a wide variety of activities and achievements. The more than 30 new leaderboards covers not only classic stats like kills, headshots, etc., but also stats for support roles, tactical actions and how good the Generals are at commanding their troops in the War.
The leaderboard categories are:
OVERALL – ranking soldiers based on score, kills, headshots, etc.
SUPPORT – ranking by support activities such as first aid, deploying vehicles, etc.
TACTICAL – ranking soldiers based on their tactical performance.
WEAPONS – ranking soldiers by weapon usage.
VEHICLES – ranking soldiers based on their destruction of enemy vehicles.
ASSAULT TEAMS – ranking assault team performance and activity.
The leaderboards can be found at www.heroesandgenerals.com/leaderboard/ and they all show player performances from the last 30 days. So to stay on top, you will need to play.
