This isn't funny anymore. Its been too long since we had any new and exciting updates (Shadow Tank, spring 2013). Every day I log in, and see maybe 15 people on at once. 20 if we're lucky. We need something besides an occasional system update. We're tired of the same modes. The same maps. The same tanks. The same items.

I know you're busy with Growtopia. But trust me, they're fine. They don't need constant TLC. Plus you have Mike, who can take care of them for a little bit.

Tanked doesn't make much money. But could you just do this for the loyal people who have hung with this game for the last several years? Trying with all their might to keep it alive?

Perhaps spend 15-20 minutes a night creating something new? A new tank? A new map? Anything.

We aren't asking for new items every 2 weeks. But just something to know you still care about us.


Please, Seth. HEAR US.

Well, I honestly don't see myself ever doing any major updates for Tanked (new features etc), but I think some smaller ones to fix it to work better on new phones (controls are too tiny etc) is in the cards. It's a cool little game but I'd rather work on other stuff.

I'm not a huge Tanked player, but I play Growtopia, and I can see that it earns more money and is thus a priority, but Seth, have you not considered maybe adding a co-developer on Tanked, a loyal player, perhaps? That is, if any of them have the coding capability, that way everyone is happy. :p

Thats the problem: we don't want small system updates. That's all we've had the last 3(?) "updates."

We need love too...


Or, like JackBowe said, hire a co-admin to help out. Blenderite knows how to program and can work with graphics (he tried to make a tank game a couple years ago).

I don't think we should push him too much. We really shouldn't tell him what to do. However, Jack's idea was quite a proposal. A player that has coding experience could perhaps work on Tanked for fun. Despite the brilliance of the idea, players like that are one in a million.

Yes, absolutely! Seth please hear us out!!! I was talking with Junior earlier about this, and I do not expect to be a co-developer (yet?) but I am perfectly willing to make one, two, or even three new maps for Tanked, just need the coding system, and a week or two! Just a suggestion, and if not me, like said above Blenderite is a loyal player and is pretty good with codes and graphic design as well.. Please Seth, Please...

Cmon Seth, we're literally the kids you've started off with the eldest, give some love back to us and perhaps just let blenderite or somebody responsible with coding skills to take over! I remember loving this game and I still have hope in it, please Seth give it another shot (literally cause they're tanks?)

you cant just give up on tanked it aint FQ. tanked has potential all you have to do is add a few more tanks and maps. just take a dang break from grow bro, it'll be fine and they should understand why you'd be taking a break from it. another tank game ive played gets a few updates a month and its 1 or 2 years younger then tanked and its growing. you update tanked it will grow. also if you come on a few more other people will want to come to see you. if you want some map and tank ideas talk to me and some others i know we'll get it figured out. come on Mr. Admin we are in trouble and you can easily help us. maybe find someone to assist to if you need it. but giving aint the right way, it aint the Tanked way.

You guys make it sound easy for someone to help but.. man, it's not easy.

Truth is, even I couldn't make a change to the levels or tanks without re-writing the custom 3D exporter I had written for an old version of 3DS Max ($3000 modeling software) - it would have to re-written for Blender or something. Or I could try digging up the old software and making it work, but we're talking lots of weird obstacles like that.

Compiling and testing raw C++ software on Windows, iOS & Android at the same time is not something too many people can do... also, I can't really anyone access to the Tanked server/source code, because some parts are shared with Growtopia which would make it a security liability for Growtopia. (can't have that!)

Anyway, I'd rather work on NEW (and better) stuff! And hopefully it won't suck!

Yeah, I feel ya - it's like beating a dead horse - it's pointless, but there will be a few people who would still do it, for the fun. But if it's not bringing profit, it's not worth a developer's time, as after all, it is your job. I'm fine with you prioritizing Growtopia, and other games, as you have done fantastic on Growtopia and I couldn't thank you enough for that, was just throwing out a suggestion. :p

You're right, the best thing to do is to be contented. Whatever Seth makes, it is for us to be happy and have fun in life. Let's thank him because without Seth, there will be no Growtopia nor Tanked (and other RTSoft games) that made feel joyed and relax. Without him, there will be no past time, no dare videos, no amazing artists for WOTDs, amazing communication and all of us!

$3000 for a software??? God...i could probably make exact replicas of the tanks on Photoshop (if I had it).

if you really want Seth to do update probably think to how he can get something out of it too, so he is not working numerous hours for free.

Perhaps Seth can set a crowd funding eg. using kickstarter or others. I’m curious to how serious people wanting updates are willing to support Seth to do work on the update.

eg for a simple update addition perhaps seth need about 50 hours for development and testing, so probably need to raise $3000. So 50 people will need to donate $60 for the goal to be reached. Obviously if seth needs more, more donation and people to donate is needed.

I myself bought a lot of tank coins to support development, and bought myself and someone else rts to give back to seth. I don’t require update as the game is still fun to play for me. You know that there are 9 tanks to play with don’t you? how many games have that much of option?
A new map wouldn’t hurt, but i’m still having fun playing tanked :)

For people that doesn’t know about kickstarter: people can donate and be rewarded based on their nominated donation. payment to the author / developer will be made if the target fund is met. If not, the donation will not go ahead. 5% fee goes to kickstarter though.

From Kickstarter guidelines, Seth needs to set it.
Again no one lose if the funds doesn't reach the target goal. no fees, and fund will be returned.
- Also people who donated are usually rewarded. i suppose here it will be tanked coins. or something more ;)

Perhaps you can leave your name and your donation in this thread so seth can give an idea if he should or not set it up.
Its a challenge i suppose, how serious are you. me myself i don't know i've spent about $150 for this game already.

So depending how attractive the reward. i would invest $30 if this go ahead.

I think i spent 50 on coins (did it to try to help tanked)
I could give a lil at a time because im saving up for a demo derby car for racing so i could donate like 20 a month, seth lets try this maybe put it in the grow news n when they donate money they get special items for amounts given it can save tanked and make you more money

Ok I've tried to not comment but can't resist.

Yeah, Tanked update is not as simple as it sounds. We can't simply make something in blender for Seth... making maps/features is the easy part... making it functional in the game is not. Please guys, do not underestimate this.

But there is a Tanked community that persists despite all the obstacles. I've had dontshoot's idea for awhile... money is not the only problem, but, would it tip the scales the other way, how much would it take, and is there enough interest out there to put up real money? These are good questions.

If there is a new game in the works, I can't wait to see it, but I've never found a mobile device game like Tanked. The battles, the strategy, the chat, is the most fun I've had on any game.

Seth will set the goal of how much money he needs it may be 5k or even 10k.
And you are right, would there be enough people interested to put up real money. At least with this people will need to step up and not just ask again and again if they can have updates. If they are not willing to support the development, they can't expect to get update.

Leave your name and your donation here if you are willing to help with the development, so seth can see if its worthwhile for him to set up a kickstarter project. And probably a reply from Seth if this is something that we can pursue.

Okay. To be honest I saw that this game was going downhill ever since Seth started working on Growtopia. (Great job by the way on your extreme success) But, if older players have noticed I completely stopped battling just because I found this game was going out of date quickly and personally there are much better tank games out there now. Although...I have met a lot of very engaging people on this game, they are the only reason I'm still here. Yes this game is out of date...yes people have moved on...but some have not... and from what I have seen...these loyal people are asking for something that you cannot deliver.
Hopefully this gets solved soon. Good luck too you all...

tapjoy would only contribute a really small pay... need a few hundreds people to do actions for a few dollars payout. Probably won't be enough to pay for the server tanked is running :) (thats just my guess.)

I don't mean to get your hopes down or anything (even though all these ideas are good on to bring the game back up) but none of you guys can "force" Seth to update the game. If he has better things to do, then he does. Nothing lasts forever. Also you can think of it like this too, Tanked is an old game and the more old something is, usually (in the gaming world) no one doesn't want to play it anymore. People are always looking for something new, something cool, and something exciting. That is what exactly Seth is doing, making a new game. So just leave him be and let him do his own job. If Tanked dies, it isn't like you won't see your friends again in his next, new game. If you are worried about not seeing your bestest friend, then get their contact info like for kik or something. Just don't go on a rampage about this stuff demanding Seth to do it.

Guys I think the best way to have more updates is to have more players. As we can see, Growtopia is more famous than Tanked meaning more players. I was thinking of making a world in Growtopia about Tanked (well I already have but needs admins ..the world name is TANKED3D). If we can make it into WOTD, many Growtopians will notice it. Atleast we can inspire people to play tanked as well. With this little help, I think huge updates will come soon

Just an idea btw. If you like my idea, just msg me here in the forums :)

Example Growtopia is your first son. And Tanked is your second son. You take care of the first son more than second son. You always ignoring second son. One day he die, how is your feeling of lossing 1 son? We know that you are busy in Growtopia, but we need new stuff in Tanked! Why you can do update in Growtopia almost 100 times when Tanked likes never gets updated? You can use your Growtopia moneys to use on Tanked server! Please make an update. We are need it... One more time please Seth...

I am sorry to say this to all Tanked players in the world... But Seth doesn't update it anymore because Tanked is almost dead. Even if he does update it, people aren't going to play it because it is a dead game.

Think of it like a cancer patient with a serious brain tumor. People tried to save them, but it did not work, and after a while of helping and trying to fix them, the eventually start to contain a fatal condition where the doctors and families can not help... Same goes for Tanked, I am sorry to say this and I mean no offense to the players that still play it but, maybe it's time to move on.:(
