Why am I unable to login or make an account?
If you are unable to login using one of the supported services, make sure you have 3rd party cookies allowed.

What browsers are supported?
All major browsers such as Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Edge, and Apple Safari are supported. Always use the latest version of your browser to insure not having any issues.
How can I get the best game performance?
War Brokers should be run in a separate browser window, and not in one of several open tabs. Close all unneeded browser tabs, and run as few additional programs as possible. Make the game full screen using the Toggle Fullscreen button in the top right of the game.
To view your frame rate, press the zero key (0) during gameplay to show the FPS counter on the left side of your screen. Press M to access the menu. Clicking on the gear icon in the top right row will open the settings screen. Experiment with turning on and off options like Ambient Occlusion, Tone mapping, Shadows, etc. until you achieve a better frame rate. You may need to test more than one browser to discover which has the best performance for your system. If you have both on board grahics chip and a dedicated seperate graphics card, make sure your computer is using the dedicated graphics card.

What game modes are avaliable?
GAME MODE OBJECTIVES
Work with your team to score the most kills before the timer ends.
A diplomat's airplane is shot out of the sky, and his important papers are parachuting down. Grab the suitcase by pressing F, and deliver it to your drop off point. The drop off point is a flashing green circle in your spawn area. Just be aware your opponent is trying to get those top secret files first so you need to be quick!
Team Capture Point:
Defeat your opponent's to lower their flag and raise your own. Stand within the green circle that surrounds a flag pole, and the flag will raise or lower on its own.
One team is tasked with raising three missiles, and the other team is tasked with preventing their launch. Missiles are marked on the map by green circles. As a missile is being raised the circle will flash red. Once the missile is launched, this circle will be solid red. Missiles are raised by standing next to it while pressing the F key. A partially raised missile will slowly lower back by itself, but if you are on the defending team, you can lower the missile quickly by standing next to it while pressing the F key. The first missile takes 25 seconds to rise, the second 20 seconds, and the final one 15 seconds. Players cannot choose a parachute point within 100 meters of a missile launcher.
Each team has a turn to see which can move the tank the furthest. The tank cannot be destroyed. It only takes one teammate standing near the tank to move it forward. Protect this teammate as your opponents try stopping him from escorting the tank to its destination!
