    Seriously BW?

    • Konoha the Wiper

      I didn’t understand that, I thought I read it wrong. So the only way to get ranked coms is to convert? Getting coms is really bad atm on PTS losing a rank WZ I get about 20 ranks coms but on live losing a normal WZ gets me 80 coms = 20 RWZ coms + 20 coms
