Meet the players – Tonton

Behind every soldier in Heroes & Generals is a dedicated gamer – and we want for you to get to know each other a little better. That is why we invite players to tell a bit about themselves and their experiences on the frontline.
Meet Tonton. Not only is he a long time player of Heroes & Generals, he and his girlfriend also took the time to visit us at Reto-Moto when they had a weekend vacation in Copenhagen recently.

What is the story behind your player name?
Tonton means Uncle in french. All of my friends and family have called me Tonton since I was seven years old when I became an uncle for first time.

When did you first start playing Heroes & Generals?
I started to play Heroes & Generals in 2012. I was looking for an interesting WW2 FPS that I could play for free. Since then I have been addicted to the game and the evolution of it.

What is your most memorable moment in Heroes & Generals?
It is difficult to pick only one moment. Maybe the first three ways battles with all factions. But every battle is different and you can have more or less fun anytime.

How many soldiers do you have, and what are your favorite loadouts?
A lot! I have a soldiers of each type with each faction, but my favorite is still the first one I made as US faction. He is my oldest soldier, he is the best equipped and I don’t plan on letting him become a General – he still has some work to do before retiring from the battlefield.

What do you do when not playing Heroes & Generals?
Unfortunately work. I have a job with lot of timetable changes that makes my life a bit busy. Otherwise, I live on sea front of Spain and love to ride my motorbike along the coast.

What are your favorite films, books and music?
Usual Suspects, The Longest Day, Reservoir Dogs. Books would be The Hannibal Collection and Soul, Raggae for the music.

Random fun fact about you?
Even after playing H&G for all these years I’m still a bad player. My girlfriend always get mad at me, seeing me play, because i die often and quickly!

You cannot nominate yourself, and be aware that we do not necessarily pick the players with most nominations but rather the most interesting ones..

Putting new color on the ‘old’ planes

It is cool to be a great pilot. It is even better when you look good while flying.
With the upcoming release of the Wings of War-update we are introducing both a brand new paint jobs and new factory paint jobs for the three fighter planes, that have seen the most air time in Heroes & Generals.

  • The Soviet Yak-9
  • The German Messerschmitt BF 109E-4
  • And the US P-38 Lightning
The reason we are introducing new factory paint jobs is to standardise the basic design of factory paint jobs on all vehicles in the game.

An old paint job to set you apart
Introducing new factory paint jobs for the Yak-9, Messerschmitt BF 109E-4 and US P-38 Lightning also means that the existing paint jobs will be grandfathered.

If you as a pilots already own either of the three planes you will get to keep and use the old factory paint jobs – something that will set you apart as a veteran pilot.

However, if you purchase a Yak-9, Messerschmitt BF 109E-4 or US P-38 Lightning after the release of the Wings of War-update, it will feature only the new factory paint job.

If you own the old factory paint jobs but like the new factory paint jobs better, these are available for purchase.

All new paint jobs
In addition to the new factory paint jobs we are also introducing three all new paint jobs for the Yak-9, Messerschmitt BF 109E-4 and US P-38 Lightning.

These new paint jobs has hints of inspiration from the former factory paint jobs, and all three of them are of course based on authentic World War 2 paint jobs.

The new paint jobs will be available in the shop when the Wings of War-update releases.
