You Can Ride A Tractor On Heroes & Generals' New Eastern European Map

The latest map for Heroes & Generals, Khutor, is the first map conceived with Reto-Moto's new graphics pipeline. It's a skirmish map set in the the marshlands of Eastern Europe -- the first new region since the game's launch -- and is described as "open and swampy."

Oh, and it has tractors you can ride. Tractors! Because bicycles are so 1930s.

The changelog for the update mentions a few more bug fixes, as well as listing the different types of Eastern European buildings and props created specially for this map. But really, you just want to get in for the tractors, don't you?

Just as a sidenote. The Tractor is not a reskin of the civilian truck, it is its own model complete with hitbox system and animations. But it does serve the same purpose as the civilian truck – we just wanted the new Eastern European setting to have its own civilian vehicle.
We put some more info on the tractor in this blog post: https://heroesandgenerals.com/2018/07/new-universal-1-tractor-for-the-new-map/

It appears that the update failed to stop the downward spiral - the game went from 20 000 player peak to 5000 players which is as lower than the alltime low in december 2014 - There is such a massive cartload of unfixed problems for 2+ years and I guess players are finaly sick of it -Its not like the community didnt do their part in it , in all the years of my gaming life I have never seen a more toxic and manipulative community and I have played DOTA . I can deal with swearwords and insults but the amound of homophobic - racists stuff I had to witness in this game tops all - with the community that is so toxic you constantly feel unwelcome from the hostile players

Even if Reto.Moto started fixing all the problems of those 2+ years now they would take longer than the game has left to live with its current playerbase and negative reviews since the development speed is glacier speed as you can see with the map - this is the first truly new map since 2014 and its not one of the big maps , neither is it any special or remarkable - its not bad but for such a super long time its just "meh"
As much as I enjoyed the game for over 5000 hours the reasons the game is in such a bad spot are plenty and could have been avoided easily - all that remains now is a toxic broken mess

The new maps is pretty ok , the spawn zone is a bit open which promotes spawnkillin ( sadly almost every other map does ) also this is the first map that is not made of recycled assets since 2014
The real problem is that you hardly have time to explore the map because the matchmaking system is pretty terrible right now and will pit new players vs organized long time players with modded weapons - as for the tractor it does indeed look pretty fun but in essence its a reskin of the civilian truck that is already in game and has little to no use in the game because driving the tractor will always result in a headshot due to the lack of speed and cover .
For people already playing the game the map is a long wanted blessing , for new players I would suggest to wait till the matchmaking is fixed because the game is super frustrating for new players right now
