BZtank is a BZFlag server network located in London, United Kingdom.
BZtank was founded in 2007 by current server owner Benfish to improve the gaming experience for non-North American players, and to create a fun and open online community. BZtank quickly became very popular amongst international BZFlag players due to its central location, providing good ping times to gamers throughout Europe, Asia, and India. Many North American players, however, frequent the server as well, creating a unique player dynamic. The server network hosts several popular maps, and often carries the largest cumulative player load in BZFlag.
BZtank currently hosts eight maps:
- 01.bztank.net:5154 - The Two Tanks
- 02.bztank.net:5155 - Castle Warfare
- 03.bztank.net:5156 - A*A Bridge Crossing - Can you make it?
- 04.bztank.net:5157 - LaserMania - Classic BZflag!
- 05.bztank.net:5158 - LouMan's Mystic Valley - Magical!
- 06.bztank.net:5159 - Missile War - The Original Four Team CTF!
- 07.bztank.net:5160 - Roundabout - Don't get dizzy!
- 08.bztank.net:5161 - INCOMING! - Run for your life!
In addition to playing BZFlag, many members also actively participate in the BZtank community. The BZtank forum is a popular hangout, where players discuss maps, strategy, BZ artwork, and non-game related topics. BZtank also maintains the #bzflag IRC channel on irc.stormcenter.net which can be accessed directly through the BZtank homepage via web interface, or with any standard IRC client.
