So, HTML5 + Kongregate functionality is increasingly important. Sadly, Stencyl isn't mentioned as one of the engines :-(

HTML5 Stencyl builds (with some changes and workarounds in engine) is good actually, working better than flash, but, HTML5 itself has many minuses.
- no distribution
- game is not saving on the computer after downloading, so, player got to load it again if the game was closed (very big minus)
- no distribution
It is very hard to make popular HTML5 game, while it is not require any plugins  players prefer flash for small games and unity for big 3D games.
But stencyl itself needs many improvements in current  functions.

I read this the other day and I love that people have been saying "flash is dead" for years but apparently "dead" means "still makes more money than HTML5, but the gap closed a lil bit"

It is OK, probably. two my games passed Y8 QA,  and they didn't said nothings about sound issues
But performance on mobile  is still veery pure, also we need rotation lock for mobile
