A two part game

The first 70 levels may take a while and the progress of leveling up the troops can be painfully boring but that’s only part one of the game. The big game starts when you become part of an active alliance and work together in the advanced level of the game after lvl 70. Check out the WIKI and the advice on the forums. Don’t get in a hurry and this one can be very entertaining.

Dead Game Walking

While this is an awesome game, it’s going through the same death throes as Trade Nations, another Z2 game. Nothing new has happened in months and the once active and addicted community is wandering off to other pastures. Save your time and money. Unless they do something to show some love to the game soon, it’s only a matter of time before it goes dark, imo.

Good game, but no events or missions

I like Battle Nations and I've been playing it for a while, but the last 6 months have seen almost no activity in terms of missions or events. The events used to occur every other week and were great to bring players together. But the events seem to have stopped, as has almost all game development. It's a shame.
