    As we all know, Adobe won't support Flash after 2020. Using Flash Player after it's End of Life would mean a huge security risk and is as insecure as using an old unsupported Windows (XP).

    With that in mind, I wanted to ask the devs if there are any plans on Fort Battles without Flash Player?

    We do eventually want to move away from Flash, when that will happen is not known yet though.

    Not to mention how flash doesn't work on Android devices. That alone is a big annoyance - many people can't go on a PC simply to be online for a fight and mobile access is the norm.

    Flash is an antiquated technology riddled with problems. The sooner the game moves away from it, the better it is for everyone.

    Hi guys,

    Sorry to bump this thread, but I just wanted to ask if this is planned for 2019? Would be awesome. :-)

    We do hope to have HTML5 battles at some point in 2019.
