Hello Everyone,

Great to see players returning and having a good time.

We are planning to commission some new standard maps.

The current shortlist of ideas in order:

  • Arctic Ocean
  • Middle East
  • Antarctica
  • South East Pacific
  • Mediterranean Sea
  • The Caribbean

How do these sound? Which one or two would you be looking forward to the most?
Also, any particular other region/scenario you would like to play?

As always, thank you for continuing to spread the word about BATTLE FORCES!

The BATTLE FORCES Team.

Hello Everyone,

We have released our first YouTube video promoting BATTLE FORCES.

Check it out at: https://youtu.be/Fz2r4FmbhkU

Let us know what you think of it.

Some of you may notice that InGeneral, pulsar110 and McCarthaigh are immortalized in the video. It includes a video clip from a currently active Indian Ocean game. Sorry MrKim, you had already completed your turn, so your name does not show up in the turn waiting list. Next time. :-)

Thank you everyone for continuing to promote BATTLE FORCES. Please use the YouTube video link above to help spread the word even further. :loudspeaker:

See you on the battlefield,
The BATTLE FORCES team

Hello Pulsar (and MrKim),

That is great! Thank you Pulsar for posting. We have actually seen a few sign ups that probably came from that.

Putting together a youtube introduction video is on our todo list. It takes time to make a professional looking one, but we will rush one out soon and update it at a later date.

Also, for a limited time we would like to encourage everyone in our community to also create a BATTLE FORCES trailer video. Players who submit a captivating video of sufficient quality will be awarded a free year of Premium or Extreme Membership based on the judgement of the BATTLE FORCES Team. All submissions will become property of Human Cube Inc and will be used for promotional purposes and may be mixed into a larger video presentation.

Keep spreading the word!
The BATTLE FORCES Team.

Hello Everyone,

The BATTLE FORCES team is very proud to announce that BATTLE FORCES is now fully functional on tablets. BATTLE FORCES can now be played on your desktop, laptop or tablet!

Out goal has been to focus on the most popular tablets and most common browser on those tablets. So for best results, please use Safari on iPads and Chrome on Android tablets.

As you may know, tablets come in an immense array of different configurations, so the experience on a given platform will differ. You can help us improve the breadth of our tablet support by reporting issues in the Bug Reports section of the BATTLE FORCES Forum. Please include clear details of the tablet make, OS and browser versions. We are currently aware of performance issues with Firefox on older Android tablets, as mentioned above, please use Chrome for better results.

The site has now been upgraded to version 3.13.0. Flush your browser cache if you do not see it already.

Changes in this release:

  • Button click sounds removed.
  • News list format improved and updated background.

See you on the battlefield,
