We are excited to announce some new improvements to the Bulletin Board! You can now mention other tanks by name in your posts and the other player will receive a notification about your message. Try it out by sending a valentines message to your favorite player!
As a reminder, we do not tolerate excessive insulting or harassment, posting of personal information, or bypassing of the swear filter on the bulletin board. We will be clamping down on individuals who are abusing the bulletin board and they will lose their ability to post.

The 2020 season is complete! A new 2021 leaderboard has now been created which will track all new tanks created in 2021! Good luck!
Dec 25, 2020:
Merry Christmas to all!
There are only a few days left for the 2020 leaderboard, which will be closed as of midnight on December 31. At that time a new 2021 leaderboard will be opened for tanks created in 2021 while tanks created in 2020 can continue to compete on the overall leaderboard.

Early last year we announced that additional tank stats were available by clicking "view stats" from
the manage tanks page. We have now added our remaining stats. We hope
players will find these insights to be interesting.
Keep in mind that these stats were added between 2016 and 2018, so for older tanks they will not be
To make the game a little more fun and challenging, we are currently tweaking our system to
prevent players from quitting the game when they are in battle, so don't be surprised if you
find that you're not allowed to quit the game for a few turns. This system was first introduced
in 2016 as a trial feature and it was so popular that we kept it ever since.
Due to continued COVID-19 quarantines, we will be extending our daily tournaments through much of May.
Good luck to all players!

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, which has caused much of the world to go into lockdown,
quarantine, or economic shutdown, TankPit has decided to host daily tournaments for the next
several weeks. We hope this will provide some diversion for players who are stuck at home and
will help to encourage social distancing. Please stay safe and healthy through these trying times.

The 2019 season is complete! A new 2020 leaderboard has now been created! Good luck!
Dec 25, 2019:
Merry Christmas to all. The 2019 year will be coming to close soon. This is the last week to
compete on the 2019 leaderboard before it is frozen and a new 2020 leaderboard is created!

A longstanding problem with the game has been that players can lock up all the ferries
on the water with obstacles. We have often reset all obstacles on the map to deal with
this, which isn't fair to players who have built bases. Due to continued abuse, we have
now added a feature to automatically periodically unlock ferries after they've been
locked for a certain length of time.

If you use customized game hotkeys, you may want to double check them. Hotkeys have been
updated to use the modern browser standard and a few special and non-standard keys may
not have been mapped correctly.

Q3 2019 special awards are now out, thank you to everyone who submitted entries and
congratulations to the winners!
All of the bot tanks in the game are now all allowed to rank up to a maximum rank of Sergeant.
We intend to experiment with allowing them to rank even higher, once we've created a better
AI so that higher ranked bots will be smarter and harder to deactivate.

Happy New Year's! A fresh 2019 leaderboard is now active and the 2018 leaderboard is closed.
All new tanks created in 2019 will complete on the 2019 leaderboard in addition to the Overall
leaderboard that all tanks compete on. Players can now switch between the leaderboards in-game
in the settings.
At the start of 2018, we began gathering additional, more detail game statistics for all tanks.
We've now made some of these statistics visible and we think players will find them interesting!
You can find these stats for each tank on the manage tanks page
by clicking "view stats". More will be coming soon!
Dec 18, 2018:
There are two weeks left to fight for your position on the 2018 leaderboard! On January 1st,
a new 2019 series will begin and the 2018 leaderboard will be frozen. After that, you'll
still be able to compete with your 2018 tanks on the Overall leaderboard.

We'll be opening a new leaderboard on January 1, 2018!

Happy New Year! TankPit is experimenting with a new yearly ladder system. Only new tanks can compete
on the 2017 leaderboard, while existing tanks will be competing on the overall leaderboard. After 1
year, the 2017 leaderboard will be frozen, all tanks transferred to the overall leaderboard, and
a 2018 leaderboard will be opened. This system will provide an added incentive for new and seasonal
players, while established players can continue to play their existing tanks. Good luck to all!
Stay tuned for more improvements coming soon.
