UPDATE: in case you are simply looking for where to find the BattleForge serial number inside the game’s DVD box then click here to see the post where i explain it step-by-step. Otherwise, if you are looking for an illegal serial number, by all means, read on.

Since the release of BattleForge people started getting to my site from search engines via these search phrases (i keep updating the list):

  • serial battleforge creator
  • battleforge illegale seriennummer
  • numero de serie de battleforge
  • battleforge serial
  • battleforge serial number
  • serial para battleforge
  • serial for battleforge
  • ea games criador de serial battleforge
  • battleforge serial gen
  • battleforge serials working
  • battleforge key
  • battleforge serial code
  • battleforge key generator
  • battleforge key gen
  • key generator battleforge
  • battleforge serial key
  • keygen do battleforge
  • battleforge serial id
  • battleforge seriennummer download
  • battleforge seriennummer id
  • numéro de série battleforge
  • serial id for battleforge
  • battleforge serial generator
  • keygen для battleforge
  • serial id on battleforge
  • seriennummer von battleforge
  • battleforge punkte code generator
  • … and some more variations of the above …

You’ve come to the right place, even though you won’t find what you were looking for (assuming you were looking for a way to play BattleForge illegally). Let me help you out: please understand the fact that BattleForge is an online game, and what that means. Seriously, stop looking for serial key generators. It is pointless. Stop wasting your time. You can only play with a valid serial number, and there are no generators that can provide you with a working serial!

Why? Do i really have to explain? Ok, in simple terms: each of the valid keys that went into the retail boxes is stored on the BattleForge servers. When you connect, your game’s key is verified that it exists on the server. If not, you can’t connect. The chances of a key generator “accidentally” generating one of the valid keys is slim. You ever got struck by lightning or hit by a meteor? That’s how likely that is. Actually, statistically speaking, much less likely than that. And of course, if you can’t connect, you can’t play. Not even singleplayer, which for BattleForge is comparable to playing solo in an MMO world.

If you like to try the game, please read a review, check out the BattleForge Demo (direct download of installer, ~84 MB) and then decide wether it’s worth to actually buy it, for example from Amazon. Here, let me make this part convenient for you:

Amazon Deutschland

Amazon UK

Amazon USA

Oh, and if you’re interested to learn what piracy does, and how rampant it probably is, read this blog entry.

PS: … and if you were thinking that listing all those search terms means i’m phishing for page views: you are correct. My intention is for potential players to learn that working serial key generators for BattleForge do (and can) not exist. It is also a document of historical proportions (kinda), showing that some people still do not understand server-side serial key validation and/or don’t know that there is a BattleForge Demo.

  1. Funny, how that always seems to happen. I think you’re in a good situation though — you’ve taken a step to a better business model for the new technology, rather than just trying to bring out the ban hammer. That makes piracy irrelevant rather than illegal, which is nice.

    About the tweakguides article, it’s not all good… I wrote up a commentary on it here:

    Although i wasn’t looking for any of these things that you mentioned, i wanted to express my frustration that the game is pay to win. Every little thing they try to get one to pay a little more cash here and there.
