We’re excited to post up our 4th and final update for the Beta test for Battle Battalions.   Keep all that great feedback coming by posting here in the official forums.

This final Beta update went live Tuesday, Oct 27 around 2PM PST.  The two main highlights are a) players who decide to exit mid-match will be replaced with AI-controlled bots and b) game balance has been altered to improve progression through the tech trees.

Again, please be sure to try out all the new features and then remember to post your comments here in the official forums
