I play atomic on Chess Live, formerly USCL. I can't stand ICC atomic because of the 'no-check' rule. FICS has much better players in atomic than Chess Live, but IMO the Chess Live interface is much better. And tom, in atomic white always has an advantage. Black just has to play to equalize, and then win. Having each side have two rows of pawns would compltely through off all the theory and study done by people like tipau and siggemannen. It would change the game completely. :)
