Thanks for Borking a good set of games. I will NOT have your third party game client on My PC. You have lost my money and support. If you guys insist on making something great then turning everyone off to it, keep doing what your doing.

You should fire who ever had this stupid idea. Then you should take a look at the revenue streams of other companys that have taken the same drastic steps as yours has done. Your gonna lose money. you've already lost mine. Quit screwing up good things. Your previous updater was thin and un-obtrusive. I want it back. You can take that Game Client Crap and shove it up your .......! I used to be able to install any of your games in less then 20 minutes. Your stupid Game Client now takes over 2 hours to install one game. Stupid, Just stupid.

I like how all the technologically impaired [edited]come out of the woodworks as soon as something like this becomes a thing and don't seem to realize they can just kill the WGC.exe task in task manager when they don't need to download an update and blame all issues on it.

 

Noob. Don't assume the rest of us are stupid and stop apologizing for boneheaded programming like a rube. Of course you can do that but what is the f'ing point of HAVING TO DO THAT. The word is "kludge". I see exactly ZERO advantage to having WGC on my PC running in the background - who needs it? Rebuild my machine and now it forces me to install WGC what junk is that. It can't even figure out how to select the 64bit version to install. Looks to mostly be a way to try to spam sell me stuff when I am already playing the gd game. You do what you want but don't tell the rest of us what to do. I for one refuse to just accept stuff when its stupid, unwanted, and gives no benefit.

Is the east server coming back up ?  When im having really bad games i like to switch servers instead of quitting the game..  does wargaming understand that ?  if you merge the serevers your active player base people like me will certainly log off and find something else to play on bad days

I just prefer the East server as I tend to be faster by +10 on average. Forced into Central where I have worse ping when it is not overloaded (it keeps telling me that, not my opinion) I have had enough of bad  games on my part from command lag so I decided it was best for those that would have been unfortunate enough to be teamed with me if I just quit for the day at least or until they fix this mess, whichever comes first.

There are ways to get the old clients back it just takes some archive searching hint hint 

 

Yep, forgot about the wayback machine.:)

 

EDIT: got WGC and WOTs working on my laptop; apparently, not as buggy as it used to be; still trying to figure out one little thing though.

I don't want the game center.  Please take it back. I used to be able to play without it just fine. But now it is required. I am NOT IMPRESSED with being forced to run an additional app just to play a game.

No... I am a voice for truth and logic on the forum, quite the opposite of the Borg Stat Deniers / Tin Foil Hat Conspiracy Theorists.

There was no nerve touching, simply answered your inept question.

 

Reality appeals much more to me than silly, made of thin air theories... but that's just me.

It's advertising.

The upside is that you can bypass it by launching the game through the exe as long as your client is up to date. 


works, now how do I keep it updated?

I am in the middle on the WGC launcher debate. I have had only one issue with the launcher and that is extended load times for WOT's. These load times very from 60 to 90 seconds. When the game is launched directly from the EXE  file, the load time 15 to 30 seconds. Either way it seems at best unnecessary.

I have a fiber optic connection w gig up and gig down. My laptop is a Dell Inspiron w 16 RAM and a 2.4 G I7 processor. I use a SSD for windows 10 and WOT.

Respectfully

Tod

This is what I just sent to WG:

 

The game now requires your incredibly buggy and unneccesary gaming center be installed to play. I installed it before and quickly uninstalled it. It is useless and terrible and that seems to be a universal consensus among players. Please, please, please do not do this to your players. I don't want to uninstall the game.

No reputable company would do this to its customers.

Certainly understand your position and mine is similar.  WG forces you to install the Game Center to continue playing or getting updates; but you don't have to have it running to play.  Just change your shortcut Target from WOTLauncher.exe to WorldOfTanks.exe to play without all the fluff.  Oh, and make sure you change the settings of the Game Center to "NOT" load at computer startup.  Really, you should never be forced to install something you don't want on your computer even if other venues do it, i.e. Steam, UPlay, etc   I'm already committed to stop all forms of support for the game due to this.  I'll continue to play until I run out of the gold I have on hand and premium days run out, which shouldn't be much longer.  I have every tank researched anyway except some tier X's so it's sorta hard to keep boredom at bay.  Good Luck.

Still can't access WorldOfTanks.exe for a workaround. When I click on it (even as 'administrator';), I get a black window for a few seconds, then it disappears. Is there another workaround?

Of course, I hate this.

Thanks for any help!
