Hey @Andys,

Thank you for reaching out to us,

I'm not sure what are you talking about, can you please elaborate?

I entered this link you provided, also did it through the Overwolf browser, worked fine.

the website itself opens, but game maps  dont open at all. Tried already clear browsing  history no help. Is there anyway to reinstall browser or clear its cache memory? if that would help, opened same page with firefox and chrome  no problem.

Hey @Andys ,

This, unfortunately, won't be fixed anytime soon, as this website requires WebGL which Overwolf no longer supports.

We would love to have a developer make an Overwolf app that can be used for the same purpose - so if you are a developer, or know anyone else who'd like to work on such project - Check out our developers platform :)

this is bad I have used  this several years and now its not working. It was very handy to open browser while in game and see game tactic maps. You should make possbile to add shortcuts to other browser then, because now overwolf browser is useless for WOT players using wottactics .- Is there some reason that you cant use WebGL

Hi I'm the creator of wottactic, as a temporary workaround, you can add &nowebgl to any link, so: http://wottactic.com/wot2?room=cuW0ZV1vx2YigA&nowebgl. It's not really documented but this will force canvas fallback instead of webgl. Tbh it should detect lack of webgl support (through PIXI.autodetectrenderer) and do this automatically, but it's worth a try.

Ok I tried it, canvas fallback does work, but it's hard to detect that overwolf browser has no webgl.

Modernizr reports it has webgl (https://browserleaks.com/features#webgl) and I tried a few common tricks and they seem to report it has webgl

I added a dirty "if (navigator.userAgent.indexOf("Overwolf") != -1) nowebgl = true;" as a fix. But you should probably fix this, either support webgl or properly report that you don't.
