    Be great if a few more people can get into the beta, it's actually a lot of fun and a great concept, enjoyed it last night for a couple of matches with CFods, Axis won a battle and the Allies won a battle as well. It's interesting to be able to push forward on the map. Would love to see a local server when it's released or even for testing, the latency was shocking and you will see in the video people warping around. I cut out a fair bit to make the video shorter, I will get some more though and get some of the tanks, jeeps as well.

    As CFods as said in a previous post, this game requires Teamwork, and a lot of it! Now I have a better idea of what is needed I will end up making an Anti Armor soldier, if a tank is guarding a bridge, you can't go over it but hey, you can swim the river!

    In my email this morning, that the game moves in Closed Beta and needs more players.

    "Heroes & Generals Storms into Closed Beta"

    - this is the headline of our latest press release, and this is exactly what we do! We believe that the look and feel of the game is quite mature with most game mechanics, features, graphics and audio well on the way. So we're going to scale up the number of players in the coming weeks as we go into a phase, where we're very focused on fixing bugs and balancing game mechanics.

    So spread the word to your friends and don't hesitate to give us feedback of any kind - bugs, balancing issues, gameplay suggestions, etc. Head to the
    forum

    for suggestions and discussions, or check in at the
    Support Center

    for reporting bugs!

    To take screenshots in the Action game, press “F9” while in the game. This will save the image as a '.tga' image in the “screenshots” folder in the installation folder (‘%temp%\HNG\live\screenshots’

    should

    have received an Alpha-key at some point. If that's not the case, then please send us a mail at

    with the subject: "Where is my Alpha-key?", remember to write your Heroes & Generals username in the mail and we'll check your profile and re-send the key to you.

    War Bonds continues

    [​IMG]

    Our payment solutions has been a bit broken since we launched it, but everything should now be up and running (except American Express and JCB).

    More than 600 War Bonds has been bought from various dedicated community members. Thanks for the support - this is greatly appreciated!

    It might not be 100% clear to all what War Bonds are, and how they work, so Reto.RedBjarne has made a quite thorough blog-post
    explaining what War Bonds are all about

    . If you just want the short version you should read on here:
    When you buy War Bonds in the game, you support the development of Heroes & Generals and in return, we will give you a monthly in-game interest back in gold, AND buy back your War Bonds after 6 months.
    For example: In the first series of War Bonds, you pay 955 gold for a War Bond worth 1000 gold. In return you get 110 gold each month in interest + we buy the War Bond back from you after six months for 1000 gold. So, all in all you get: 6 * 110 + (1000-955) = 705 gold for buying one War Bond (and you’ll also have the 955 gold back you gave for it in the first place).
    If we, for any reason, have to reset the servers and the stats at any point you still keep the War Bonds you’ve purchased.
    War Bonds can be bought in the in-game shop.
    Besides, all the gold you choose to buy with 'real' money during the the Closed Beta will be refunded as gold to your account if stats are reset during the Closed Beta. Only exception to this is the gold you have
    spend

    on buying War Bonds - but the War Bonds will still work after any resets and in the Open Beta and through launch.


    That's all for now. Remember that you can follow us on facebook, twitter, YouTube or Google+for videos, realtime news and updates.

    I picked Axis for the current war also. I suppose we should decide on a side to pick for the next war so we might can run into each other somewhere in Europe.:)

    I have mostly played German, so I can't comment about the better side in terms of toys. Both sides have same types of toys, but I haven't looked at the actual weapon statistics.

    Actually having a mix of us is good to be honest, we can all try and join the one game and having some fun.
