I was looking at WOWS and was going to download it, but it says you have to download Gamecenter to download the game client, so I cancelled the download. Is there a way to download the game without the gamecenter, or do I just need to forget about playing it?

Game center is slightly convenient, because it updates all three games for you if they have been patched.

 

However, in my experience it kills performance on my computer. Chews up CPU, bogs down game play, so as soon as the game is open I kill the Gamecenter process, I never leave it running other than to update the games.

I noticed the same. That's why after I get to the garage, I right-click the GC icon in the task-bar and select "exit". 

I don't really mind the GC, except for when it has updates. I can understand the latest update to it as it now has a "pre-login" feature. But, most other times, I can't figure out what is being updated. I mean, come on, it's a launch-pad. How much more functionality does it need than to provide useful information and announcements, links to various WG sites, and a means to start the actual game?

Thanks for the help and responses. Looked around a bit and on the content page, if you click the big orange Download buttons, you have to accept the Gamecenter, but underneath is a line of text in white that lets you download the classic launcher...seems to be downloading fine right now. Looks like a fun game, look forward to trying it.

just a advice, Don't be one of those players that camp at max range or riding the edge of the map.

Go ahead and download the Gamecenter and WoWS, then create a desktop shortcut to WorldOfWarships.exe and use the desktop shortcut to start the game.

 

You'll only have to play with the Gamecenter if you need to update the WoWs or WoWP client, and your desktop shortcut will remain good.

just a other advice, all of your tactics in world of tanks will not work in Wows. it like a entirely other game.

Operations are the best thing ever, its worth getting a decent t6 prem so you can do most of them and make lots of credits.
