What information is used if I login using my Google, Facebook, Twitch, Steam, or VK account?
We use Oath for account logins so we do not get to see any information from whatever service you use. We get back a unique token for you so that we can save your ingame progress and character customization. That way when you come back to play another session we are able to restore your progress.
What browsers are supported?We support all of the major browsers i.e. Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Edge, and Apple Safari. You should use the latest version of your browser to insure not having an issues. We have found Mozilla Firefox to provide the best performance followed closely by Google Chrome.
How is a game like this available to play for free?We made the game free to play and web browser based to give it the widest access to players. We do have costs for maintaing the servers for the game, the initial development cost of the game, and for ongoing support of the game. To recoup those costs we have ads, and in game purchases that do not effect gameplay.
How can I get the highest frame rate for the game?You can view your frame rate by turning on the FPS counter [using the command CTRL-0 (CMD-0 on OS-X)]. The first thing you will want to do is shut down all other tabs in your browser. If you must maintain open tabs open War Brokers in a seperate browser window (not tab). Also make sure you do not have any other open programs running on your computer if possible. Make the game full screen using the full screen toggle button in the top right of the game. Press M to access the menu. Click on the gear icon in the top right. This will bring you to the settings screen. In here turn off any options you do not need like Ambient Occulusion, Tone mapping, shadows, etc. You can experiment turning these options on and off until you achieve your desired frame rate.
I cannot see or connect to any servers?If you cannot see any servers or do not see a ping time for a region you may have script blockers like noscript, scriptblock, UMatrix, etc blocking your browsers access to the server. You will need to allow the browser to communicate with those servers to be able to play the game. Go into your script blocking extension and allow the Warbrokers servers.
