Hey! Wow!

Thank you so much! :)
It really makes me happy to read how much you enjoy this creation.

Its been a tough year for me, but now i'm back with more time to put into BD.
Many updates coming next month as well as a new surprise to be announced soon.

I've recruited more developers as well as new fresh admins, to speed up the development process.
And this has been the strategy of BD from the first day i launched it on my own in 2006, i've always used the income from supporters to recruit new staff, get stronger servers and improve the game. we'll need to open a BD History page once to show the progress we've made since the days of the circles and squares and the stick-man on the old client till today ;)

I'll also probably start admining a world once again to get even more in touch with the game balance & mechanics. and keep on balancing the game to make it more fun for everyone.

The best help you could offer is by spreading the word about BD. in your school, in your friends, coworkers, collage, recruit good and awesome new players to the BD community so they'll also have a chance of enjoying the game.

Posing about BD in every place on the web, forums, blogs, other games' forums, facebook. etc etc

anything that might bring more players to BD is welcome (as long as its legal ;) )


As always i'm open for suggestions on how to improve the game or bring new players.


Enjoy! and thanks again for this wonderful post!

We all like you michael, you are great, can't wait too see you on f4, watch for me :D

No really, I've played countless MMO RTS games but the only games that I still play is Battle Dawn and Ikariam and I must say Battle Dawn is way better than Ikariam. Battle Dawn staffs and players are really close and the community is very active, funny and helpful. More on that, Battle Dawn gameplay is very simple, but unique and addictive. I must admit BD is the first game that make me stay up till 7 A.M and wake up in the middle of my sleep, and the first game that I've spent my money on (How dare u Michael...).

I'll be always cheering for you Michael, as well as all BD team (as long as I have an internet connection and a computer).

May the force be with you.

Some of you may have read Simmen's post where he quoted Michael explaining that 2009 had been a huge loss for Tacticsoft and he almost had to pull the plug and said thank-you for keeping it going.

This time, I would like to say thank-you to Michael for listening to the community and making changes based on feedback - not an easy thing to do. I would like to thank Michael for doing what ever it takes to keep this company running even though the hard times in order to keep our addictions strong and our dopamine levels high. Lastly, I would like to thank Michael for hiring new admins who are still connected to the game even though things may not be going so great financially for the company.

From what I can see, this game is your baby and you don't want to let it die. Neither do we. Keep strong, keep fighting and NEVER forget that whatever some of us say we are ALL still on your side and love you for your amazing dedication to this game. Together, admins and players can pump out updates for the better, separated neither of us know what the heck to do and just get frustrated.

My pointer for your is to stay active in the community and if you don't have the time ask a trusted admin to do it and DON'T let them slack off. Without community input the game will slowly crumble.. Nobody wants that.

Please take the time to reply to this thread, thanking Michael for what ever you like.

Hey everyone, to show my appreciation to Michael I wanted to do something unique for him:D
What better way than for the game he kept going(his baby) to thank him???
I created an alliance in Earth 4
TYM(Thank you Michael)
N:9377 E:31117
By the end of the round, I would like for us to be in the top 12 and get as much territory as possible!!!
I would like to play for real and win a round and dedicate it to him, but I retired due to the lack of time :(
hope some of you will join me get this going!!!

P.S. WE WILL NOT BE COMPETITIVE, we're only aiming for top 12, which should be just building up an army ;)

Edit**
people who are still playing should get a team together and try to winz in one of the worlds :D
