Meet the Players – iAmTheFlyingCow

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 have invited a handful of players to tell a bit about themselves and their experiences on the frontline.
This time we are featuring a player that has made being a pilot something to strive for in Heroes & Generals.

What is the story behind your player name?
There really is no logical story behind it. When I was very young in elementary school, my friends and I thought a flying cow was a funny thing to think about. As I got a little older and started playing online games, I was asked to come up with a username. I remembered the idea of a flying cow and BAM … I made that my username. Later I added the “iAmThe” to it because I didn’t like numbers at the end of my name. There is a surprising amount of FlyingCow’s out there believe it or not!

When did you first start playing Heroes & Generals?
I started playing Heroes & Generals back when it was first released on Steam, July 2014. I was recovering from surgery at the time and I needed something to do in my free time. I saw that Heroes & Generals was just released and best of all … it was free! I liked first-person shooters, World War II games, and I’m a cheap-o, so it was the perfect fit for me!

What is your most memorable moment in Heroes & Generals?
I’ve had a ton of memorable moments. A few that stand out are getting my first upside-down scrape in a plane, getting my first +10k score game, or going for scrapes in a para plane. Good times!

How many characters do you have, and what are your favorite loadouts?
In total, I have 23 soldiers. I have enough soldiers to have at least one soldier for every class for every faction. My favorite type of soldier is Pilot. After all, “flying” is in my name, I have to like planes right? My next favorite would be Recon. Nothing is more satisfying than hitting a sniper trickshot!

What do you do when not playing Heroes & Generals?
When I’m not playing Heroes & Generals, I’m usually stressing out over my university work.

What are your favorite films, books and music?
My favorite films: Mad Max: Fury Road, Inglorious Bastards, Prisoners, Forrest Gump, The Green Mile, The Shawshank Redemption, Pirates of the Caribbean

My favorite music: Logic, Eminem, G-Eazy, Flamingosis, Nirvana, Gorillaz, Saint Pepsi, MF Doom

My favorite books: The Road, No Country for Old Men, The Great Gatsby

Random fun fact about you?
I’m actually not a cow.

Five tips for Squad Leaders

Being a Squad Member is one thing. Being a Squad Leader takes it to a whole new level. Here are five tips for Squad Leaders.

1: Give commands
Giving our orders is the most important role of the Squad Leader. By using Q (default key) you can issue a defense, attack or rally order. If Squad Members follow these orders, not only do they get extra experience, you are also being rewarded for them following your orders.

2: Use Auxillary Seats
Auxillary Seats can be unlocked by having higher grade Squad Member and Squad Leader ribbons. It’s always nice to have a diverse Squad ready to adapt to any changes on the field. The most common special career types are tankers and recon.

3: Big versus Small Squads
An Infantry Squad can consist of up to five other soldiers besides yourself. But having that many extra member prevents you from setting Auxillary Seats, which can be important to win a battle. Choose wisely if you prefer to have a large squad, or a smaller squad with more versatile options.

4: Use squad chat
Want to communicate something specifically to your Squad? Open the chat with ENTER (Default Key) and press TAB (Default Key) to switch to talking specifically to your Squad. It will even have a sound notification if someone writes something in the Squad chat.

5: Veteran Membership bonus
For each member in your Squad, who has a Veteran Membership, the other squad members get a bonus as well. This can increase the bonus up to 25% for all Squad members. Who would say no to an extra bonus on all your earnings.
