From the legacy announcements page on July 1, 2011:

bots4 has officially moved out of beta! All bots have been reset to level 1. In celebration of the release, an achievements system has been added. It's still in its early stages, so expect to see more to it as we go forward.

It's been a pretty wild ride. I didn't know how this little side project would turn out when I set off on the project sometime in 2010, but as previously noted, bots4 has been running longer than bots2, which ran for ~8 years. Here we are now 79,484 accounts, 96,207 forum posts, 408,321 bmail messages, 30,838,550 trains, 107,958,379 fights, 2,284,760,551,124,539 experience points, and 5,145 playtime years (!) later.

I'm sincerely thankful to everyone that's dedicated their time to play the game. Having players that enjoy the game and have stuck around for so long (whether continuously or after a hiatus) is the biggest compliment I could receive, so thank you. bots4, like bots2, has always been a very social game, so the community is the game's lifeblood; it'd be nothing without you. Here's to another 10 years of adventure together!

Thank you for keeping the game alive. I played a lot in highschool on bots2. Having a bunch of shitty things happen to me the last few years and the losses in family and friends I was so excited to find this gem still alive. I work at my old highschool now and my office is the old detention room where i used to sit and write out builds for this game when i got to get on computers again at school. It's very bittersweet cause i miss the happiness i used to have. But i love being able to come back and enjoy just a taste of the olden days.

Thank you guys.

Alive and kicking! Well not really kicking because reset isn't working, but alive. Thanks for keeping the game alive, Ender! Hopefully you will fix the mailthingy soon :)

Thanks for keeping the game alive after all these years. I've been botting since 2003 I believe. Started at 14, still going at 32. I'll still be around in some capacity in another 10 years I'm sure.
