Heroes & Generals - Reto.Hades


On the 26th of May 1940, the battle of Dunkirk began. The Allied forces beaten and broken tried to retreat back to Great-Britain, many lives were lost.

War log day 1: War everywhere

The landings in Italy and Turkey had the effect we were hoping for. Zurich was captured without much resistance, allowing us to cut the Soviet lines. They managed to hold on to Bordeaux for a while longer, but without the necessary reinforcements, we slowly gained ground on them. We managed to push the Germans back in the Netherlands, recapturing the city of Rotterdam. However, the Germans are pushing hard in Scotland, putting the city of Edinburgh at risk.
Forces of both the Germans and the United States are closing in on Prague. With their supply lines at risk, the Soviets are unlikely to hold it, but who will get there first?

FRANCE IS BURNING! JOIN YOUR FACTION AND FIGHT FOR SUPREMACY!

SOLDIERS!

A NEW BATTLE AWAITS! THE AMERICAN ARMY IS IN DISARRAY!
GERMANS FROM THE NORTH, SOVIETS FROM THE SOUTH. WAR IS EVERYWHERE!

ONLY ONE FACTION CAN TAKE CONTROL OVER FRANCE, WHICH ONE WILL IT BE?
FIGHT FOR YOUR FACTION NOW!

BATTLE OF DUNKIRK:
The Allied forces are on the retreat! The Germans and Soviets are quickly taking more ground in France. Will the Americans be forced to retreat to Dunkirk and back into England? Or will they be able to push back, and never lose France in the first place?

THE OBJECTIVE:
If you are a U.S. General, use your additional resources wisely, fight against 2 strong enemy forces and gather your soldiers to victory!

If you are a German or Soviet General, strategise with your allies and your troops to defeat the U.S. army!

Each faction has its own advantages and challenges in the war, only one can prevail. Join the battlefield and pick your strategy to decide who will rule Europe!

THE CHALLENGE:
The American forces have two isolated fronts and have very few options to expend. Can they force a breakthrough and push back into Europe?

The Soviets have the most ground to start with, but a lot of ground means a long front line. Will they be able to hold their lines and better yet, expand to control all of Europe?

The Germans too have a very wide front line, there is a lot of ground to defend, will they be able to take further control in Europe?

YOUR REWARD:
For the duration of this event* all soldiers participating in the WAR effort will get the following rewards:
  • All players who win at least 20 battles during the event will be gifted a special ‘wartorn’ skin

  • Increased XP multiplier for the War Victory ribbon x10 (only for stats that require war victory)

During the Battle of Berlin event, we have been keeping a war log. In this log we described the progression of the event from the German perspective. If you are interested in reading all about it, you can find the log here!
War log: Aftermath

Even though the last war is still raging on and the rewards will still have effect for this war, the official event is over. With three victories for the Soviet faction, it is very clear who the winner was during this event. It was not quite the result we were expecting, or hoping for. However it has been a good learning experience for us and we will use that knowledge to make future events even better. One of the things we will make sure to do next time, is announce the event in advance, so everyone has time to get ready for the event.

We really enjoyed holding this event and it was a lot of fun to keep a war log. We of course hope you enjoyed reading, but more importantly playing this event! We are planning more events like this in the future and with some changes, we hope we can make the next event even bigger and better!

Of course we also have some statistics to share!


Let us start off with the players per faction. This is the total amount of individual players that has played at least one battle on a specific faction in the Battle of Berlin event. If a player has participated in several wars, he is still only counted once (unless he joined a different faction). We can see that Germany, with over 40% of the players, had by far the most players in the war.


During the event a total of 1,015,342 assault teams have been either deployed or reinforced.
In the image you can see how many assault teams have been deployed per resource type. We combined the assault teams into certain classes, to limit the amount of categories


There have been a total of 21.192 (war) battles during the course of the event
The United States has won 6500 battles and lost 5821 battles
The Soviet Union has won 7028 battles and lost 6332 battles
Germany has won a total of 7664 battles and lost 9038 battles


Next to the amount of total battles won, we also thought it would be interesting to only look at the capital cities. We have counted a total of 117 battles over capital cities. The Soviets took part in 104 of these battles. The Germans participated in 92 battles while the Americans only fought in 38 of these battles. The Soviets also had the best results in these battles, winning more than 60% of them. The Americans broke even, winning as many battles as losing them. While the Germans had the highest loss rate.


Last but not least we have also looked at which capital cities saw the most combat. As was expected, this had to be the city of Berlin. Almost all battles were between the Germans and Soviets on this town, except for 1. In which the Americans participated (and lost). The cities of Istanbul, Edinbourgh, Marseille, Oslo, Zurich and Rome also saw some minor combat, and have been combined into 'other'.


*Note statistics have been taken from the start of the event until 30-4-2019 12:00 CEST

Your April Update is Here! 1.14.1 Game Update: 3 New Anti Tank Weapons

ATTENTION SOLDIERS!
HEROES & GENERALS WWII IS DEPLOYING 3 NEW WEAPONS OF DESTRUCTION FOR ALL INFANTRY SOLDIERS. TANKS BEWARE!

THE GERMAN GRANATBÜCHSE 39 [GR B 39]


The Gr B 39 is a Pz B 39 converted to take the standard rifle attachment grenade launcher (Schiessbecher). It launches a shaped charge warhead that is fired by a wooden bullet. This allows the weapon to engage harder targets than the original bullet launching platform. Most PzB-39 rifles in service have been subject to these modifications, and the resulting Gr B 39 guns are able to be very effective in combat.

THE US M18 RECOILLESS RIFLE


The M18 recoilless rifle is a 57 mm shoulder fired anti-tank recoilless rifle. As a recoilless rifle it is capable of firing artillery-type shells at reduced velocities (~365m/s) but with greater accuracy than anti-tank weapons that use unguided rockets, and almost entirely without recoil. The M18 Recoilless Rifle can penetrate up to 76mm of armor at a 90 degree angle.

THE SOVIET PTRS-41


The PTRS-41 or Simonov anti-tank rifle is the semi-automatic analog of the PTRD-41 anti-tank rifle. The gas-operated PTRS fires a 14.5 mm armour-piercing bullet with a muzzle velocity of 1013 m/s and devastating ballistics. It can penetrate an armour plate up to 40 mm thick at a distance of 100 meters.

The battle of Berlin started on the 16th of April 1945. For two long weeks, the Germans fought bravely to defend their great city. Hundreds of thousands of men lost their lives in the streets of the German capital. In this war log, we will keep you up to date on the latest news from the frontline.

War log day 14: Basetrade

Strange things have happened on the eastern front. We managed to capture Minsk from the Soviet forces, but while we assaulted Minsk, the Soviets countered on Riga and managed to take the city. The Soviets also assaulted Warsaw from the south-east and managed to get their hands on it. In the south the Americans seem to be taking ground from the Soviet forces, Budapest, Belgrade and Istanbul are all under American control now. The war continues!

War log day 13: Germany pushing all fronts!

After the fall of Scandinavia, our forces were scattered and beaten. After our defeat, we rebuild our forces and reclaimed our land. We launched a new war and booked great successes. We took the city of Riga from the Soviet forces and the assault on Minsk has begun. In the west we pushed into the Netherlands and managed to get close to Rotterdam. Unfortunately we were pushed back for now, but we are not done yet in that area. For Germany!

War log day 10: Copenhagen has fallen!

After some great pushes onto Rotterdam, the tides have turned against us. Berlin and Stockholm have fallen to the Soviet faction. Rotterdam regained by the Americans. All that we have left is the city of Oslo. Despite that, much of Germany, The Netherlands and Scandinavia is still ours. The men are still ready to fight! We must regroup our forces, pick our targets and go into the offensive!

War log day 9: Berlin at risk!

Despite the many victories on the western front, the Soviets in the east have a foothold in Berlin. We have many brave men defending the city and we will fight till the very last man. The Soviets will not take this city from us. On the west, we are knocking on the door of London. Will we finally be able to capture it?

War log day 8: Rotterdam surrounded!

Poland has fallen to those damn Soviets. It did not matter how many we killed, they just kept coming. The German border is at risk, and we must reinforce the east to hold our enemies off. The west however, the west is looking well. Our mighty army has pushed hard on the American lines and as predicted, we have beaten them back and surrounded Rotterdam. Our march is far from over. London, Paris, one day we will own it all.

War log day 7: Siege of Rotterdam!

After some a rough Easter the German faction has managed to push out of Germany into the Netherlands. The Americans are still holding Rotterdam, but with our forces marching onto the city, will they be able to hold it? The outnumber us at the Dutch border, and perhaps we should be scared of that. But should we really? The Americans are weak, it doesn't matter how many men they bring we will take them down, one by one!

War log day 4: Counterattack!

The Soviets have taken Berlin from us! But they will not hold it for long. Our forces have engaged the Soviets in an attempt to retake the city. Battles will be hard and bloody, but the might of the Germans will not be stopped here! We will regroup our forces, repair and refuel our tanks, and we will fight for victory!

War log day 3: Italy in disarray

We may have lost the war, but where one war ends another one begins. Germany stands strong, we are holding on to the border between Germany and the Netherlands, and war rages heavily in the east, in Poland. While a steady front-line has been established in the north, the south is in chaos. Italy and the Balkan are contested between the Americans and the Soviets. The Soviets are at the doorsteps of both Belgrade and Rome. Will the Americans hold, or will the Soviets take victory in the south?

War log day 2: Berlin in Soviet hands

The battles in and around Berlin have been brutal, the Soviets managed to bring the city under it's control but their position is far from safe. The Americans are pushing from west to east, while our own brave men are moving in from the north. Perhaps, we can use those foolish Americans, let them do the heavy work around Berlin while we prepare for the kill. Berlin will be ours once more.

War log day 1: Enemies in all directions

The enemy has been closing in on us, Americans to the west, Soviets to the east. They have reached the outer defences of Berlin, slowly taking more and more ground. Their tanks are rolling through our country, their men with their filthy boots stepping on our soil. We must take up arms to defend the city of Berlin! Go into the streets, knock on every door and call upon everyone to join our great effort! Für das Vaterland!
