It was five years ago today that I first started working on WarLight.
WarLight has come a long ways in five years! Over 2.5 million multi-player games have been played and it’s showing no signs of slowing down.
Here you can see a graph of relative traffic to WarLight.net from the last few years:
In the early days, traffic was pretty flat. March of 2010 is when WarLight swapped from Silverlight to Flash and the traffic started steadily growing. The first spike you see in June 2010 is the big Poland spike, when lots of Polish people found the game (mostly through Polish site joemonster.org). The big increase in traffic in October 2011 was due to the release of the stand-alone client that was distributed to Flash gaming sites such as Kongregate and Armor Games. You can also see big dips in traffic every December as people are away for the holidays.
2013 is going to be an important year for WarLight. Stay tuned to the blog for announcements!
