There has been speculations that Amok, the main developer of this game, has 'given up' on atWar. This was brought to light by a post made by Critical (Chicken Man). Sir Hellykin then explains to the community in the comments of the current situation regarding Amok and atWar: basically that Amok has no time to continuing developing for atWar currently, and that Ivan is learning HTML5 to continue where Amok has left off. Ivan is also working with Pulse (a moderator) to fix some of the code.
The following screenshots have been provided by Sir Hellykin. They contain Ivan's responses to Amok and atWar's current situation:

A few days ago Mauzer Panteri made a post accusing popular duellist Yellow Rose of using third party programmes to cheat during game play. He explains how in a clan war he experienced some shady rolls against Yellow Rose, who simply responded to the unusual rolls 'I'm using Lucky Bastard'. In the comments on the post many players came out saying they also experienced strange rolls when playing Yellow Rose and have also suspected him of using foul play. Yellow Rose himself responded to these accusations saying that he uses Lucky Bastard a lot and that no one ever complained when he experienced bad rolls against other players as well. He then provided video evidence of his recent games to show he doesn't use any sort of third party programmes whilst playing. The post has since been moved to the moderator forum for the moderators for investigate. The truth is as clear as mud.
