Once the 8.6 .PATCH file is downloaded, how am I to apply it to the client?
I have put the file in the updates folder in my World of Tanks directory with other .PATCH files, but instead of installing the 8.6 update upon launcher startup, it attempts to find the update online again, at which it does a one minute countdown which pauses at 31 seconds and then tells me the update cannot be downloaded.

What do I have to do to get 8.6 installed?

did you try manual start by using the worldoftanks.exe file in the main folder and just skipping the launcher?

I had all the same problems.  Yes, I tried to manually start using the wot.exe file in the main folder, not the launcher.  That also failed.  I'm hoping that when I get home and restart the computer, that it will take on the restart.

I have an odd problem.  I downloaded the 8.6 patch file and placed it in the updates folder, started WoT, it updates the launcher, small download.  It appears to install the patch since after the small download/update of the launcher it checks for game updates and starts installing.  Verifies integrity then checks for game updates.

At this point it shows it is now wanting to download an update that is 1.7 GB in size.

My home internet isn't the greatest for downloading, just to update two computers from 8.5 to 8.6 takes approx. 3 hours.  Sooo, I downloaded the patch file whilst at work so I could hopefully save myself some time updating the other 3 machines.  I just don't understand why the 1.7gb update is happening since the file itself to go from 8.5 to 8.6 was only 800+ MB.

Not really a problem as I also downloaded the full install and will most likely just do that instead.  Just wondering here.... if anyone had a clue as to why it would do that.

One other question, is it safe to emtpy the contents of the updates folder once the game is updated and playable?  Some of my machines have quite a few update files in there just wasting space, imho.

I cannot download the update of 800 MB. When I start he WOT launcher is gets stuck  and I get a Critcal Error message states "(5) "Access is denied. The application cannot continue. For details see log file" then I press the Ok button and then the WOT launcher starts and then it get stuck at 28% and I get another critcal error message and says see log file for details. So I go for direct download and save it to desktop, but for direct download I only save part of the 800 MB file. First time 177 MB is onyl downloaded, next time I tried it was 95 MB and the thrid and last time it was 405 MB.  The patch download stops on its own so what do i do  

Please help and any advise will be greatly appreciated and also keep in mind I am a noob when it comes to computing so I don't know the high tech fixes.

PROBLEM SOLVED ! If you all have problem installing the manual patch, follow this Step :
1.Change the wot_86.2745_85.2535_client.7z Name into wot_86.2745_85.2535_client.patch (The Extension)
2.Put it to the Update Folder (You must at least update it little, 1% only)
3.That's it, Happy Hunting ! :smile:

Any Question ?

Did you already see the log file for error ? If you did, what's the cause of error ?

It seems to be very picky about the download.  Typical error for me was failed to extract a given file.  I only tried once to get the update file.

I downloaded the entire game, first downloaded file was fine, installs every time.  Downloaded the file again (I left my USB drive at home, so wanted to get it again) and the second one I got failed to extract one of the two patch files.  I viewed the log, saw what file it failed to extract and failed to install, deleted that file and let the launcher re-download the files.

That first complete game file still installs fine though.  I have 5 PC's I update, but due to swapping some drives out, elected to do a fresh install.  My home ISP is wireless and not quite as good as DSL, so I usually do my big downloads at work,  most times I get a good file, other times not so much.

You need to redownload the file again.

The "Here You Go" link has been changed and is now: https://support.worl...ent-to-patch-86

And yes the download does not work properly most of the time. And YES this has been like this for YEARS. Google "wot installer problems" and you'll see posts similar to this one dating as far back as 2011.

It's a real shame - the game designers and programmers have done such an awsome job, but when you add to this the idiotic web site where nothing works, and mess that all these EU/NA/RU portals are, and the crappy support and you end up with a rather frustrating user experience...

I played the first beta and I was like - "wow man , that's my game!" I then started playing the game when it was released and it was getting worse and worse with each update. Nevertheless, I wanted to buy gold with my paypal - "no can do - your paypal activates our security filters!" WTF?? I been having my paypal address for 10 years?! Buying things on ebay all the time -  no problem. So I quit and havent played since 2011.

I am now coming back, hoping that maybe things have been worked out in the mean time, the bloathed updates curbed and the site and payment processing portals finally operating smoothly. I can't even download the game!!

COME ON WG.NET PEOPLE!! It's not like we're downlading 5MBs here! It's a friggin 5GB blob!!! Make sure your server works! Provide a torrent! For many people tht's their monthly download limit!! We can't be downloading the 5 gig binary 10 times until it finally works!!!
