Real name Joe, The Joby part is from my surname. I was accepted as a CC for WoWs in March 2019, I enjoy giving stuff away, so it's all worthwhile. I have been playing WoWs since Sept 2015, mostly in the evenings with my kid brother, and TBH, we have some great times. I try to help others to learn the game from start, also try to give advice on recruiting new players so they can get some good rewards, for the recruiter and the new player. I hope you enjoy my blog, if so, then I am a happy man.

Thank you for your comment, it will be added asap, as long as you are not showing as anonymous/unknown.
