Anyone else having this issue?
I don't run mods. Windows 7.
I've sumbitted a ticket, and also messaged the person who made this thread.

 

So, what is the go? I still can't open wot, without it instantly crashing for no reason

not crashing here, but something with that "micro" patch was definitely off. 

 

Downloaded a launcher update, then tried to download client updates, giving an error message that the update service could not be reached blahblah... 

 

Play button greyed out. 

 

Forum search recommended a re-install - which lead me to the discovery that the installer is too stupid to recognize that 99% of the data are already there, so now the game is re-downloading the whole freaking game, XXX gb of data... 

 

I might suggest you work on your error messages: "Update server down due to scheduled  maintenance, wait 1-2 hours, no need to re-install or do other stupid things" would be more helpful... And you might want to do a little work on that installer as well, not only does it not do a file check, every time you pause/interrupt it it looses data (every real torrent program can resume downloads without losing around 200mb every time... ), and tune the bandwidth settings - there are many people playing this in countries with bad internet, so not only it takes us 2 days to re-download the game, it also kills the connection since you can throttle the download, but it uploads full speed all the time...  (a well known other game with thundering tanks in it got that part right btw - check out their launcher, never had problems with it)... 

 

 

well, no more x5 for me and not "on track" any more for the Jap meds... 2 days lost, and one more technical glitch like that and my HD has a lot of free space again... there is only so many times I am willing to clog my internet connection to download a buggy game... :D

Well, I can't even get to the login screen, and I was playing fine up until 8:50pm my time, Australia, yesterday.. At 9pm my time, the server usually resets/kicks over, whatever it does, some times on a friday it goes down at 9pm, my time, for 15 minutes for maintenance. So whatever was in that 0.5mb patch it had to download, prevents me from even reaching the log in screen. Quite annoyed as my premium time is being lost, and I cant even log in.

Also, there would be absolutely zero point reinstalling the game.That would not fix anything, just consume your data and time.

 

I get to see the version upon opening the game, 0.9.14.1 #155.

 

So overnight the game does not work. Due to that 0.5mb patch. Please help

Just signed on and everything is working okay. Oops...I mean everything is working to WG's version of "okay". ;) I don't miss the 5X stuff. Maybe game play will return to some semblance of normal now. I notice the JP 8.8 promotion ends in 5 days. Anyone have any idea what goes on sale next? Maybe the "rare" LTP? :teethhappy:

why wouldn't they say what the micro patch was, I just don't get it.........

 

 


 

 

 

most likely it was just putting the garage back to normal, but why not just say it in the announcement? Pretty stupid that they don't I'd say.
