atWar, formerly Afterwind, is a free-2-play online multiplayer turn-based strategy game (Silverlight). In the best traditions of Risk and Axis & Allies, you play against other people to fight for world domination. Features free unit movement - no grids or predetermined paths. Up to 20 players in a game, simultaneous turns. Another feature is the Map Editor allowing players to create their own maps and units, giving you the chance to re-enact any battle real or imagined. If you get disconnection problems with the Desura file right after you load the game then you should disable the firewall or add a firewall exception rule... or just go to our website and play in your browser there.
A new protocol for game server communication which will hopefully combat lag and end disconnects has been added to atWar.

Some good news for those of you who suffer from frequent disconnects and server lags in general.
We've added a new protocol for game-server communication which could potentially prove to be more stable that the old one (this will be decided after some extensive testing). Overall traffic amount with the new client should be around 5 times less too.
