  1. WOT+ auto return equip brokie….
    Manuevers even results from August 2023….brokie…

    Update 1.23….BROKIE…lol. Great debugging and quality control you WG donkeys

  2. I thought this new update seemed rushed, and now two hours after the Servers were supposed to go Live it seems to be the case.

    Granted we’re receiving 24 hours of Premium compensation, where applicable, but next time they should add a couple of hours to their Official restart time, just incase.
