The original two versions of BATTLE FORCES were based on Flash. It required Flash to play, something that was usually included with browsers. This easy access allowed a fun group of players to grow and enjoy BATTLE FORCES.
Unfortunately due to security and maintenance concerns, Flash support began to be dropped from popular web browsers about three years ago. This had a direct effect on attracting new players and allowing existing players to play. As a result, active players have dropped.
Until recently, we have not had the time or resources for the large rewrite required to move BATTLE FORCES from Flash to a newer technology. Fortunately this has now begun. As you have experienced our new version can be played without flash. There is still much to do, but as we round out the features, we expect new players to discover us and enjoy a growing user base.
2020 will be the year of BATTLE FORCES growth! Stay tuned for enhancements and additions all year long.

Personally, I believe there should be no guidelines for truces. A persons word is his bond, I had success in Battleforces by knowing who to trust, others who were sketchy, and new players who I kept my eye on. Made for more fun in my honest opinion. I enjoyed being dependable, therefore reputation ensured I had some early advantageous truces over other lesser known players. As we know from history there are nations, e.g. Hitler, who broke truces and it should be the same here.
Actually, you might want to think about setting all of the H2H games with a standard, as fair as possible, drop. I am playing an Indian Ocean game now where I started with a full $20 less in income and with India, all by itself, surrounded with my only other land territories being in Africa. If a new player got a drop like that it may very well send them running from the game, never to come back.
@phantom Thanks, I hope I can get back in the swing of things (I already missed my turns yesterday by mistake )
Yes, WebGL is required for rendering. Older browsers may not have sufficient support. Installing a more current version of FireFox or Chrome should ensure that WebGL is available.
Unfortunately there is a chance that a much older computer will be unable to install the most recent version of FireFox or Chrome. In this case, BATTLE FORCES may not run. This might be what you are experiencing.
Please let us know if this resolves the issue,
