Attention Game Center users!

 

With the recent update to the WGC, you now only have to login once to access all WGC supported titles! 

 

Once you login to the WGC and select play on WoT you will be brought straight to your garage.

 

There is a "remember me" functionality so if you are worried about security, then it's best to leave that unchecked.

Also, if don't have the WGC and wanted to it out, here's the download link: https://worldoftanks.com/en/news/announcements/wgc-test-drive/

 

That's pretty much it!  Let us know if you have any questions!

Now if they could only find a way to bring all the servers together. 

I miss CW after changing my job 3 years ago. I would love to play CW on EU server.

Outstanding job, WG! -.-

Wonderful for families that play on the same computer.   I WoT, then later the kids WoWs or WoWp..  useless feature for some.

Some might find it useless, but it's definitely a "quality of life" improvement in my opinion.

As discussed in this thread, it would be nice to have a more visible button to logoff / change accounts of different players on the same PC.

I still get a login screen with a connect button (rather than a username/password box)... what do? I am not taken straight to my garage upon clicking play... as was implied...

What a bummer, I got faked out.   From the way it sounded, I thought we'd be able to log-in to any WoT server we wanted.  Would be great to play on SEA(better ping) after all the NA guys go to bed.

I still dont trust that launcher to not make my computer fry itself in the background. I'll stick with my individual game launchers.

Yes Jambijon I have a question

 

Why is WG focusing on things like this? 

 

This does nothing to improve player retention or attract new players  

 

Incredibly disappointing that something like this would somehow be a priority.

this great since i have all 3 accounts! now i have two suggestions:

 

1) it would be nice if can we have access to the garage via cell plone or tablet without having game installed.

2) on the web page can we have a clock or timer because i m in a diferent time zone and hemisphere, never get the time events end .

Currently, it allows us to choose which region we're connecting to.

However, please also allow us to choose which specific server we want to enter.

 

Sometimes I get auto-sent to LATAM, other times I'm sent to US Central... and having to switch from one to the other takes about half a minute for my account, so this would be a small time saver :)

Your new login method takes MORE time, not less, to log in. 

Before, I would open the game center, select the game, hit play, select my server, and then hit connect. 

Now, I open the game center, select the game, hit play, log out of the LATAM server, select the US Central server, and then hit connect. 

So now I have to wait for it to log me into the LATAM server (with nearly 3 times the ping of the US Central server), then log out of it and log back in to the correct server. 

PLEASE, have it remember your server choice if you are not going to give us the chance to set it to the correct server. Auto simply doesn't work correctly. 

 

As it is, this is not a quality of life change.

having same login issues.. taking longer.. which I KNOW its not on my end.. this new "but not improved" centralized launcher is not working as effeciently and quickly as normal WoT Launcher.. Quit distracting us with useless blingy apps and FIX the Game instead Please.  We want game improvement and fixes, not this boggy stuff.

Yeah throws me to LATM server. Major problem. No opt out option either. Might revert to individual launchers.

Do not like this single login.

WOT crashes every time a battle ends now.

Bummer never get to see my stats for the battle anymore.

 

Seems to be happening because I close the login window.

No reason to have it open wasting CPU time while I play the game.

 

Still testing

Still crashing after every game

 

PLEASE FIX THIS ISSUE

This is a great idea that has been (what a surprise) poorly executed by Wargaming. I play on the US server and always have, my ping is 200-220 all day every single day. Before we get off on the wrong foot, I am not here to complain about my ping. I live along way away and 200-220 is quite playable. What I am here to complain about it the fact that now that Wargaming is forcing me to use their one login idea I am constantly automatically logged in to the LATAM server. Then every day I now need to switch servers.

 

I note an Administrator has said

Well Jambijon, some do find this useless and because it was poorly executed it certainly is not a quality of life improvement. Why didn't Wargaming spend a few mins thinking about this Launcher update? Why wasn't some forward thinking applied to what might have been a good idea, Wargaming could have simply given it's customers (Yes Customers) the ability to set a preferred server. WOW, now I know this is out of the box thinking for you but maybe usability could have been a consideration?

 

We all know the answer, Wargaming simply does not care what it's customers want. This has been proven time and time again.

 

Generally I enjoy the game that is why I play it, but why is there a desire by it's designers/developers to make it more cumbersome?
