Content Creators of the week
This year we have launched our brand new Content Creator Program. With this program we hope to show Heroes & Generals to the world with the help of our Creators. While at the same time help them to grow their channels and attract bigger audiences. Every week we start off the Community Creations blog by showing some of their footage. Do you think you have what it takes to join the content creator program? Take a look at the requirements and sign up!

Youtube:

After last weeks Brazilian streamer, we are now back with an English speaking youtuber. Please take a look at Appreax. This guy know how to edit his videos. He has created some great videos using the T-20, hunting tanks and other things as well. In his last video, it's time for the MG-13! Take a look at the video below and don't forget to like his video and subscribe to his channel!



Twitch:
This man needs no introduction, he has his own! This week we have iamekaj. This man is a real criminal, despite that we still want to show off some of his latest twitch clips. Meeting Ekaj is of course nice and all, but I have also found a lovely clip of his little friend. Make sure to follow his channel and say hello to him and his friend!

Smooth Criminal

Teaching the US & GE Some Lessons From the Motherland!

Death from Above
No, it is not a paratrooper that you have to be careful off. It is this man crouching on the roof of a church. With his rifle in his hands, he take no prisoners and is ready to kill anyone who wants to take the objective from him. Big thanks to discord member Sandlycut who posted this image.



Hitsquad!
It seems that the player Ghost and his friends want to hold onto O2 till the very last man! Three of his buddies have taken position on the balcony, ready to kill whatever dares to come close. Let's hope the enemy doesn't have a tank though!



Crash landing!
Розбійник seems to have made a rough landing with his plane. Flames are surrounding the carcass of this once mighty beast.



Paratrooper in action!
Who doesn't like to see some paratrooper action? Youtuber Candidlion5.0 _ has recorded some nice footage from one of the battles he played with his M1 carbine.


Uneven ground
Another clip from the channel of Fubared, in this case it is not he himself who steals the spotlight however. We have a great video of a tank in a heightened position. Take a look at the clip below and see how it goes!

Actually shoot!
Don't forget to show some love to the creators of the videos, screenshots and artwork!

RETO MOTO

Afterthought: A few of the community members commented that I had made an error in the previous video. The image I posted showing two Soviet tanks were not two SU-85s. They were as a matter of fact an SU-85 and an IS-2. Apparently my barrel knowledge is not up to speed! Shame on me!
Heroes & Generals - Reto.Umbra

Soldiers!
Update 1.19 - Thundering Sky will give new depth to the pilots waging war in Heroes & Generals with a superb new Cockpit View. AI was tweaked to a lower difficulty and Combat Badges have been rebalanced. Plus, many terrain bugs have been fixed!

Cockpit View

Planes will now have an optional cockpit view controlled by the ingame setting.

This new cockpit view will enrich the players’ immersion and let YOU become the ace fighter pilot legends dare write about.

Heavy Set Tweak
In order to close the gap between new players and veterans we have made changes to Heavy Set Badge. Heavy Set will no longer decrease damage taken in the head.

AI Rebalancing
AI Soldiers have seen some rebalancing due to popular demand.

AI will often miss their first few shots to give the player a chance to react – the same goes for the submachine wielding AI Soldiers, they will miss more shots than before.

Less AI Soldiers wield anti-tank gear in the Tank Vs. Tank gamemode to accommodate more legroom inside the town as well as less manhunting capabilities towards tank-less players.

Terrain Fixes
Several prop fixes to improve the gameplay, Capture Zone bug fixes to balance certain Capture Points, general terrain fixes and more! Read all the fixes in our changelog below!

REMINDER: 50% OFF ALL STEAM DLCS
Summer is here and that means Summer Sale! It is time to bring your a-game to the battlefield, assemble and expand your arsenal today!

50% OFF All Steam DLCs! Limited time only!*

While at the same time help them to grow their channels and attract bigger audiences. Every week we start off the Community Creations blog by showing some of their footage. Do you think you have what it takes to join the content creator program? Take a look at the requirements and sign up!

Youtube:
After a great start with our German youtuber Schilli this week we are traveling to our Brazil with Canel do Neo ingame better known as Neoforce. He has been playing this game for quite some time and shows off his pistol skills in his latest video.


Twitch:
Is your Portuguese as bad as mine? Than you may be more interested in our streamer of the week: Ditzu2174. Ditzu21, as his name is ingame, perhaps has not been playing for as long our previous streamer Fubared. But man has he made up for that by playing the game several days a week. With well over 2000 streaming hours he is a well known name in and out of the game.

Let's take a look at some clips! Whenever you spot a tank, make sure you take a good look at it! And don't be afraid, there are no mines to be found around here.

Big brain move

No mines...

Be courageous! Be brave!
This weeks featured image has been made by Steven and can be found here. We can see how two men are sitting on the back of a truck, as they drive through a battlefield. An earlier destroyed ISV (Infantry support vehicle) can still be seen burning in the background. Thank you for this amazing image!



In position!
The first image of this week comes from UrBanichka and can be found on steam. We can see a MG42 set up to protect O1 at all costs. Will he be able to hold on to the train station?



Charging through the fields
Another image that could have easily be used as the artwork of this week, discord member Nukio_Sorioka treats us with an amazing shot of two SU-85's moving through the fields. Their cannons are aimed at the enemy and they are clearly ready for a fight!


A funny potato
Of course we have more people that make funny compilations. And this week we found a nice video from General Potat. I don't think I have anything else than to say, go take a look at Funny Moments #15


What to do when you're out of medkits!

Streamer Tykjen was ready to heal himself, but it seems a friendly is wounded as well! How will he use his last first aid kit? Take a look at the video below and find out!

Femass Yoinked da heal

Today we are launching our very first Community content blog!

Every week we will scroll through youtube, our discord media page and our community hub on steam to find your best creations!

Content Creators of the week
This year we have launched our brand new Content Creator Program. With this program we hope to show Heroes & Generals to the world with the help of our Creators. While at the same time help them to grow their channels and attract bigger audiances. Every week we start off the Community Creations blog by showing some of their footage. Do you think you have what it takes to join the content creator program? Take a look at the requirements and sign up!

Youtube:
Our first community creations requires a good start! who else should get that honor than our youtuber Schilli. Schilli is back with one of his amazing Funny random compilations!. Not number one, or number two, but number 22! Yes, that means he has already made 21 previous editions, so after watching this video, be sure to check out the other ones!


Twitch:
A strong start requires a strong follow-up, so as the streamer of the week we have Fubared, ingame known as As1n. This streamer plays H&G almost on a daily basis and shares his gameplay on his twitch channel. Of course we have dug through his channel and found some fun highlights for you guys to take a look at!

Do a barrel roll!

Don't you just hate it when you see a wounded man and you want to heal him but he just runs away! Well it could be worse!
 
The Longest War!
As artwork and featured image, I have decided to go for a classic. Created all the way back in 2012 by community member K120. Back then I (Reto.Hades) was still a regular player myself and got to work on the H&G Newspapers. K120 made this great artwork for one of the first editions. Do you have any artwork you love to see featured in these blogs? Be sure to upload them to on stream or in our discord!


Just a bump!
Next up we have two mighty Tiger II tanks! One of them seems to be in conflict, as flames are all around it. Let's hope the other tank can be of assistance... Let's hope it doesn't come across any bumps in the road. Thank you for discord user Conserved for your contribution!


Forwards to the front!
Another cool screenshot came from steam user muqq. In this screenshot we can see muqq and his friends driving to the frontline. No matter the explosions in front of them, they will push through! One can only imagine the fear of those soldiers sitting inside their truck. The light that suddenly shows up in front of them, the sound shrapnel bouncing off of their vehicle, brave men indeed...


So many kills, so little time! What's better than to sit and watch someone butcher soldier after soldier! Well... this is turning into a rather gruesome description isn't it? Do you know what's also gruesome? The deaths of these soldiers!

He's streaming it!
And we are watching it! We found a very nice clip from twitch user Nonvo. While unfortunetly we couldn't see the entire flight of the GAZ. Seeing it fly by on the screen was just great to see.

oh shiet

RETO MOTO

*Some of contents of this blog are a bit older, as the first draft was created a while ago. In the future all content (except content from our Content Creator group) will only be from the week before.
Heroes & Generals - Reto.Umbra

The Development Overview board provides an overview of what projects are currently in development at RETO MOTO, so you as players of Heroes & Generals can see what we are working on.

The overview lists both the player-facing projects we are doing such as new content, features and maps. But it also shows the projects that are happening behind the scenes. Development projects you as a player may never even notice, but they are necessary to do to keep the game going.

The Development Overview is a living thing. Projects grow, transform, split into new ones or change all together as we work on them. Sometimes you might even see a project moving backwards in development if we find out something needs to be reworked.

WHAT THE DEVELOPMENT OVERVIEW SHOWS
Our current development projects are sorted into three basic sections based on where they are in our development cycle – early to final development.

This provides an indication of how far along in development a given project is.

The individual projects on the Development Overview vary in size and as such there can be a huge difference as to how long a project remains in one section or another.

The Development Overview also gives you an insight into what project we have chosen to put on hold, which are in test and projects released since the overview was last updated.

The Development Overview will be updated on a monthly basis.

Cheers!
RETO MOTO
