Over the last couple of weeks, we've been implementing changes that should solve some of the "Enter Game" bugs, and other connection issues players have been facing. It's not perfect yet, we're still troubleshooting some issues specific to Internet Explorer.
We've been making terrific progress with the new C++ servers, it's coming together. Based on some recent load tests, it's looking like the new servers will be able to support up to 100 players at a time without slowing down. This will allow us to implement all kinds of exciting game modes.
To our loyal fans who keep checking the changelog every day, we just wanted to say thanks for sticking with us!14 March 2017
Currently, the battl.io servers are written in Nodejs which performs okay with a small number of players, however, it slows down substantially as more players join. We're in the process of re-writing the entire battl.io server in C++. We're making solid progress, but it's taking some time. We apologise for the lack of game-updates. We expect that with C++ servers, we will be able to support more players with less computational slow down.
All player accounts and game stats will be preserved when the C++ servers are deployed.1 March 2017
We're aware that a number of users are having connection issues where the 'Enter Game' button doesn't appear. If you're having this issue, please open the game in Google Chrome and send us a screenshot of the top error rows in your Chrome's console log. It can be accessed by pressing F12, then clicking on the 'console' tab and scrolling to the top of the console error log.27 February 2017 - Moved to beta
battl.io is now officially in beta! Over the last two weeks, players have played nearly 3000 hours, and helped us identify and fix many bugs. We appreciate all the help we've received! We still have a lot of work to do before a live production release, but here is what we've been working on over the last few days:
Battl.io is a new web-game striving to be the pinnacle of competitive .io games.
Battl.io is the vision of two friends who have been playing videogames together since they were six years old. Although a top-down shooter, Battl.io draws heavy inspiration from our favourite games; attempting to combine the high skill based combat of games like Counterstrike, with the fun of utilising different classes and gadgets in creative ways like in games such as Battlefield.
We strongly believe that this game will only reach its full potential with large input from the very community who plays it. We are determined to listen to all ideas from the player-base and implement any the community feels will improve the game. Please feel free to drop over to our official subreddit, or facebook page to discuss your ideas.reddit.com/r/battlio

Currently, we have servers based in the USA, Europe, and Australia. If you believe there is a demand for servers in your area, let us know and we will see what we can do.
We are currently exploring all opportunities to port to iOS and Android.
