From tomorrow (Friday, November 15th), all players who are currently using the old HTML5 version of the game (with the exception of players on some partner sites) will be automatically redirected to the new HTML5 version. The old version will be removed and will no longer be accessible.
Here’s the really important part.
With tomorrow’s release, we are adding support for texture atlases to the new HTML5 version, which will enable the game to run smoothly even on outdated computers!
The old HTML5 version served as a “lifeboat” in the months after Flash was discontinued, keeping the game afloat and allowing you to play. Now it has served its purpose, and the new version is stable enough to allow everyone to play comfortably.
But this is just one stop on our journey. Our final plan is to switch completely to the new HTML5 version and phase out all other version of the game. There’s still quite a bit of work to be done, but we’ll get there.
Thank you for your continued support, Tankers! Log into the game tomorrow and tell us what you think.
