  1. Once again Valve invites the players on Steam to nominate games for the annual Steam Awards. We would love it if you would consider nominating Heroes & Generals for an award and if you do so, you need to do it before the 27th of November @ 19:00 CET / 10am PST. How to nominate Heroes & Generals It is a simple matter to nominate Heroes & Generals for a Steam Awards – and you will even earn Steam Badges for doing so. Stop by our Steam Store page. Click the Steam Awards banner. Choose the category you think we should be nominated for. The “Better with Friends” Award Out of the 8 award categories there is one award that we feel fits Heroes & Generals perfectly: The "Better with Friends” Award. When engaged in an all-out WAR-experience, facing a strong enemy - fighting alongside your brothers from all over the world really makes the difference in your efforts to lead your faction towards victory! “There are some games out there that just aren't the same when you play by yourself. Maybe you need to have a friend to watch your back. Maybe you need to have a friend that you can stab in their back. Either way, mirth is awaiting those who gather friends to play these games.” as Steam writes about the award. This is a description we believe that you also feel is core to the Heroes & Generals experience. Earn more Steam Badges by: Nominate at least one game Nominate a game in each category Play a game you've nominated (You were going to play H&G anyways). Reviewing (or update your review) for a game you've nominated (Tell everyone why H&G should win). Original post: https://heroesandgenerals.com/2018/11/steam-awards-2018/
  2. You are right. It has to do with the way our reply tool, the tool Reto.Bobot uses for making his cool images, works that a situation like this can occur – bombs simply do not always drop.

    The november update of the Development Overview is delayed, sorry. We hope to get it done early next week.

  6. Soldier. Wake up! The crack of dawn is here. It’s the perfect time for victory! You had a good night sleep? Ready to kick some enemy butt? Grab your gear and get in that first battle of the day to earn some well deserved experience! Welcome to update 1.12.1 and the new Daily Bonus – a 50% experience boost awarded for first battle of the day to each of your soldiers. Deploy to activate your bonus Each soldier’s Daily Bonus is activated when you deploy him into his first battle of the day – no matter if it is the soldier you started battle with, or if he is a soldier you switched to during battle. Once the Daily Bonus is activated, you get a 50 % experience bonus for that soldier – the bonus remains in effect until battle ends. Only one Daily Bonus per soldier. Not sure if you redeemed your daily bonus yet? If available, your soldier will show a small orange 50 % sticker next to his portrait on the Heroes-screen. On the virtual battlefield of Heroes & Generals a new day starts at 05:00 UTC (06:00 CET / 12:00 am EDT) – that’s when the Daily Bonus resets. A new overview As a new player in Heroes & Generals you automatically get an infantry soldier belonging to each faction – Germany, Soviet Union and United States – but you might not have noticed? We added a faction awareness filter to the Heroes-screen that by default displays all your soldiers from all factions. You can then choose to only see one or two factions – whatever provides the best overview for you. A good example for Veteran players is to use the faction awareness filter as an overview of all their pilots or tankers regardless of faction. The feel of war War is an inferno of bullets, explosions and deadly fighter planes in the sky – something even a newly arrived soldier will experience when entering their very first encounter battles. To strengthen the feeling of war for new players, we have added fighter planes to their first series of encounter battles. The planes will fight it out amongst themselves in the sky and will not engage with the infantry soldiers battling for control of the capture point. Hint: A soldier with a steady aim will be able to take out the pilots and be awarded experience for doing so. You can read the full list of Hotfix changes in the Changelog.

    Help test the Krepost Encounter map on prototype - round 2

    As it is a 'work in progress' map we need to make changes to it a lot more often than we do with the Live maps - and we would need to take the servers offline each time we did so.

  11. You might have noticed that we skipped updating the Development Overview in september. The reason for this was, that we were finishing work on the ‘Deploy! Drive! Destroy!’-update, and the release of this massive update has a huge impact on what we are now working on. You can find the link to the 'Development Overview' both here and in the top menu under 'DEVELOPMENT'. The work on the Krepost Encounter map, that takes place in the same Eastern European setting as the Khutor-map, has moved into In Development. And we expect to start playtesting this map on our Prototype Server before long. You will also notice that we have moved three new tank destroyers into In Development; the Jagdpanther, M36 Jackson and SU-100. And if you are curious to see how the new additional faces for soldiers will look like, we have added a preview image of one of the new American faces. Below you will find a list of what we have added and what we have updated on the Development Overview: New Projects Visuals: Recoil animations added to FINAL DEVELOPMENT Gameplay: Squad Linking added to FINAL DEVELOPMENT Updates Gameplay: Vehicle Update - Damage moved to RELEASED Gameplay: Vehicle Update - Deploy moved to RELEASED Gameplay: Vehicle Update - Handling moved to RELEASED Gameplay: Vehicle Update - Terrain Particle Effects moved to RELEASED Visuals: Animation updates - Armored Vehicles moved to RELEASED Tech upgrade: Physics moved to RELEASED Tech upgrade: Sound moved to RELEASED Vehicle: Jagdpanther moved to IN DEVELOPMENT Vehicle: M36 Jackson moved to IN DEVELOPMENT Vehicle: SU-100 moved to IN DEVELOPMENT Visuals: New faces for soldiers moved to IN DEVELOPMENT Map: Krepost Encounter moved to IN DEVELOPMENT Environment art: Eastern European terrain - next maps Deleted (redundant) Name changes Map: Soviet Encounter renamed to Map: Krepost Encounter Original post: https://heroesandgenerals.com/2018/10/updated-development-overview-october/
  12. We need your help to test the upcoming Krepost Encounter map! We are looking for your feedback on how to improve the gameplay and what you think of the overall flow of the Krepost Encounter. Let us know if you find issues that break the gameplay. For example are there places on the map where you are able to squeeze through (or shoot through) where it does not feel intended. Be aware that the map is still in an early state and a "work in progress" so everything is subject to change - especially the visuals. Almost all surface textures are placeholders at the moment, and are going to look vastly different when the map is finalized – to be honest the map is not all that pretty to look at right now. So please disregard the pure visuals – we do not need feedback on the visuals. Known Issues The water in the moat is invisible There are missing/white textures several places on the map. There are placeholder textures (like the brick textures on the fortress itself) Various shader-issues Visual gaps in walls, roofs, ceilings and such Map is not optimized, so it might run at a lower framerate than what you are used to WHAT ARE WE TESTING AND WHY? We are testing the gameplay flow on the new encounter map named 'Krepost', situated in the marshlands of Eastern Europe. So jump in and play the map, play to win battles. In addition to the map this prototype test also includes a new set of precision aim recoil animations, ie. how your weapon behaves on screen when you shoot while aiming (hold right mouse). How long will prototype be open? We will keep prototype open over the weekend until Monday October 22nd at 1300 CEST. HOW DO I JOIN? In order to participate, you will have to download the Prototype client. You can download the client by clicking the link to http://prototype.heroesandgenerals.com Download and install the client as indicated. You will have more than enough Gold for testing purposes and grabbing the vehicles you want to play with! Please note that any gold, credits or warfunds are not transferred to the Live servers. What you do on the prototype server stays on the prototype server. FAQ Q: How do I access the prototype server on Steam, Mail.Ru, or Hype? A: Unfortunately, Prototype is only accessible through the standalone client. But you can use the same login, so you only need to download the stand-alone client. Q: Can I play when I located outside Europe? A: We have two different servers supporting prototype this time, one in Frankfurt, Germany like we normally have that gives good (or decent) ping for Europeans, Russians and most Americans, but we also have one running in Hong Kong so our Australian and Asian players should have a chance to play as well. Q: Why is the downloading of the client progressing so slow? A: During the initial opening of the server, there is a heavy load on download centers. Q: What should I do if I encounter a crash? A: If you experience crashes you should send the crash report right away! Q: Does this impact my normal game? A: No, You have a separate amount of credits, gold & warfunds as well as separate characters, weapons, vehicles etc. on the prototype server! Q: Do I get the Gold, Warfunds and Credits back in the normal game? A: No, the free stuff stays on the prototype server. Q: Am I allowed to have fun? A: YES! While this is a test it is also a game, so go have some fun! Check out other vehicles, factions and careers from what you normally play.

    Armored and dangerous

    I do see how and why that would be nice to have - kinda like a cheat sheet on how to battle tanks 🙂 Jokes aside - it is not something we currently have the resources to make a public facing version and usuable version of. However, looking at the real life tanks should give you a clue as to how to destroy most tanks effectively.
