Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to.

The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.
