It has been a busy few weeks at the Reto-Moto headquarters. We had the Insider Summit, getting the 1.10 update ready while also releasing the Update 1.09.1. were we have made adjustments to the player level rewards and tweaked the xp earned by pilots – the details on the update can be found in the release blog post.
Test the Update 1.10 on prototype
We have put the 1.10 Update on our prototype server so you can test it and provide feedback before the update goes live.
If you go to the prototype server you can have a look at the new helmet covers, the new vehicle paint jobs and the new weather settings. And you get to battle it out on an all new encounter map called ‘Culmar Hamlet’.
We have made a forum section dedicated to public test feedback, please go there to provide your input.
Second letter from the CEO
“What allows me to wake up every morning and come to the office with a smile on my face, is that now I understand that Heroes & Generals players are dedicated to their faction, to the war, but also to the game service as a whole and this is what makes RETO MOTO and Heroes & Generals stronger,” writes Reto Moto’s CEO Reto.JM in his second letter to the community.

Insider Summit went well
Saturday 11th of November we had the very first Insider Summit at the Reto Moto headquarters in Copenhagen. The nine invited veteran players had an enjoyable time as did the developers from Reto Moto – it was a mutural benefitial exchange of viewpoints, ideas, thought and just plain fun.
We are working on a more extensive report detailing what was talked about at the Insider Summit that will be made available to all of you.
Meanwhile, we collected all our photos from the event in this blogpost. However, our favorite picture from the summit is the one below submitted by community member GermanSoldier.
The making of a Highlight video
Each time we do an update for Heroes & Generals we also do a video highligtinging the new content and features – these we call Highlight videos.
If you want some insights into how a Highlight video is made, you might want to follow our Lead Animator Reto.Colding on Twitch. Just before the release of the Update 1.09 he streamed while putting the Highlight video together. You can still watch both part one and part two on Twitch.
Anything can happen in combat
All Heroes & Generals players know that anything can happen on the frontline. And we really like it when you tell us about your more unusual experiences during combat – be it videos, gifs, screenshots or whatever.
The clip below was uploaded to the Heroes & Generals Subreddit by Porthgeidwad. And we really like the small story about showing mercy in combat:
