BZtank is a BZFlag server network located in London, United Kingdom.

Background[edit]

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.

As of June 2015, the network had handled player sessions for more than 14,500 unique callsigns.

Current Maps[edit]

BZtank currently hosts fourteen maps:
