271w ago - From their blog, linked above: You spoke and we listened. As of today, you'll be able to track your Warhammer Online characters in your Raptr profile. Once you enter your character(s), we automatically track your characters' items, levels, and Renown in your feeds for all you friends to see.

Timezone Support For those of you not in the Pacific time zone, we've also added a timezone option that will update all charts to reflect your time zone. Simply go to your Account Settings page and select the proper time zone. Now you'll know for sure when your friends around the world are playing Rock Band 2 at midnight in your own time zone.
We've also made some big behind the scenes improvements to our search engine. First, we made the button prettier and easier to understand that you can change what you're searching directly from the header. We made the search engine much faster, so if your friends joined only a little while ago, they should show up in search results in just a few minutes.

The only mishap though - especially for such a massive game - is that you'll have to start again to start earning trophies, because none of them are retroactive.
"We had hoped to use this to retroactively award trophies, but we discovered during testing that this is not possible," admitted Criterion.
"If you're familiar with PS3 trophies already, you'll recognise that this works in the same way as all other games that have added trophy support post-release," it added.
