We're happy to announce the launch of our long-anticipated Battlefield. It is a series of quests based on an actual historical event involving Napoleon himself. You will be able to engage in these quests by yourself or invite your friends to join you. There can be up to a total of 5 participants in this event. What's the benefit? First, the battles are a lot of fun and you can earn Battlefield honor points which can be used to purchase battlefield items in the store.
We will be giving all player 2 Communication Tower, 2 Forced March and 2 Order of Pardon to experience the Battlefield. So now is the time to prepare your armies, muster the troops, and raise the call to arms. Battlefield is open!
In Nap War, you will witness a series of amazing events, experience some unforgettable battles, and share tall tales and war stories. We'd like to know about them.
This winter's Nap War Monthly Tabloid is a chance to share your voice with the Nap War community. We challenge you to impress the community with your views on the greatest things going on in the game. It can be anything that you think is interesting that is about your alliance or about individual players.
Be creative in your thoughts. You may want to tackle something profound, something controversial, or just tell a story about your daily gameplay that may entertain the community.
This Nap War Monthly Tabloid is inspired by a series of battle events and adventures that will air this winter on Nap War, and your work may be presented, via our e-tabloid, in conjunction with these events.

During the activity period, all players will be awarded a Halloween Box every other day if they log on to the game. By opening the box, you could randomly get one resource, an item, or a Halloween costume. Or you can buy the box in the Shop, or exchange it for candy.
During the Activity Time, every player can get up to 5 Halloween Boxes through daily quests. The box will only be available on Oct. 28, Oct.29, Oct. 30, Oct.31, and Nov. 1 Napwar server time, one per player per day. Do not miss any of them!

Aiacciu is server one and Autun is server two. So invite your friends and family to come join us at FOW and enjoy the game!

This battle will be split into two phases: The first phase begins Oct 28, 2009 and ends on Nov 3, 2009 at 00:00 Nap War server time (CDT).

FOW is progressing in its efforts to bring you the best gaming experience possible. We recently launched the "live" version and today we made upgrades to the graphics of the game. The buildings were enlarged so players have a better view of the layout and the developers can make fine art adjustments to the buildings. This provides for better animation which will be a feature incorporated into the game.
Additionally, there were upgrades to the architecture to reflect the historical accuracy of buildings at the time of Napoleon. The Town Hall is now located in the center of the city which is a reflection of city design of the era.
We realize that this has caused adjustments to the location of buildings within the cities of our players. To assist you with this adjustment, we are offering 5 free horseshoe coins to players who have five to nine buildings in their city at the time of this adjustment and 10 horseshoe coins to players who have 10 or more buildings in their city. This is per city that you own at the time of the adjustment. We anticipate that the horseshoe coins will be delivered to you within the next 24 hours. Thank you for your patience as we strive to improve at Fog of War!
The official live launch date for Fog of War is October 19, 2009! Its first server Aiacciu (Server001) now welcomes players worldwide to play together. We again wish to thank all of you who participated in the closed Beta phase of the game. We believe that as a direct result of your suggestions and ideas that there are many improvements that you will see once the game goes live. Thank you again for assisting us through this very important phase of our game development!

The ability to relocate cities will be optimized for play.
2. All alliances will be disbanded. There will be no cooling off period for warfare, so battle may begin at once. There will be no ability to truce, so Armistance Agreements will not be in effect.

The top 30 players who score the best under the catagory of Siege and the top 30 who score the best under the catagory of Guard will receive prizes based on ranking (In the game, click on Ranking, then Military to see your score). These scores reflect casualties inflicted as an aggressor and casualties inflicted as a defender.

Attention all Beta Testers!
We are fast approaching the day for the "live" launch of Fog of War. The Napwar Team continues to make great progress during the closed Beta phase of the game. As we listen your suggestions for game improvement, we are implementing your ideas into Fog of War to enhance the enjoyability of game play. We are grateful for the many Beta testers who have been so helpful in testing the game, and we wish to thank you for your participation. Because we value your input, we are postponing the launch of Fog of War until October 19, 2009 allowing you to continue to test the game and permit our developers to implement your suggestions. By doing so, we can enhance the quality of play and make things smoother for you, the player.
When the actual release of Fog of War occurs, there will be many new features that will then be "live" within the game, including improvements to the graphics design. All accounts will be reset and each player who participated in the Beta testing phase will receive a very special "Thank You" package. Even after we are out of the Beta phase we will continue to look for ways to upgrade the game for your enjoyment. Again, we thank you for taking the time to be a Beta Tester for Fog of War! Tell all your friends and family about us, get your alliances ready to go, and be prepared for the call to Arms that will come on October 19, 2009!
