Hey folks, it’s been a great week for Balanced Annihilation. After the release of BA 10.0 we had some awesome games this Christmas. We received a lot of insightful feedback from you guys. Thanks for all the kind words on the new release! Finally, we can return to the old way of doing things which is having weekly releases with much fewer changes. In the meantime, we have got some other good news (and music) for you. Enjoy!
Finally after countless hours of work and testing, we’re presenting you BA version 10. We used to have a somewhat weekly release with much fewer changes, but due to the scope of this release that wasn’t possible without breaking changes and uncompleted work. We aimed it to be ready much sooner, with fewer changes overall, our apologies for the long wait.
Over the years the SpringRTS community has created hundreds of playable maps. On the other hand, their full scope may be a bit too overwhelming for players who are just beginning their journey with BA. Therefore we have chosen a list of quality ones, which are played most frequently. These packs include battlefields for duels, team skirmishes and FFA (free for all) matches. What’s more, we made sure that all of the maps inculded in the packet are up to date. Because some of them have many different versions, it is easy to get lost in it without such guidance. Hence, when a new version comes out and gets tested and accepted by the community it will be updated here.
Good news everyone! If you are a long time BA player you have probably always wondered why the game lacks a proper website. The answer is simple, it’s a ton of work and BA maintainers always focus mainly on game development. As a result, we had no official place to point to for instructions. Lacking info, no proper installer or guides made the game unenjoyable for new players. We are happy to announce that this issue ends on this very day.
