  1. Happy Friday! I had asked Xoom if I could do the Friday Dev report this week in order to talk about the development that is in the pipeline and my team is currently testing. We are working on which is our first release after the big release of Hybrid Supply. We aimed for this release to be a “Maintenance” release to try and focus on the little bugs that have been around. Both the production team and development team have been focused on these tasks. That doesn’t mean we have ignored adding a few features to this release as well. View the full article on
  2. So you've all heard about this big glorious patch called "1.36 Hybrid Supply." We've talked about it for the last couple of years and we're right now in the middle of the first Campaign of this, and we have some great observations to share with you. Here's the big news: it's working as intended, and has received an 84% approval rating from in-game polling. Players are now deciding where to go, supply is available for all personas on a greater scale, High Command officers are not overburdened and that old school WWII Online feel of battles is back! Let's dive into this update and get some more detail. View the full article on
