Thank you so much. I've been trying to figure this (The location) put in a ticket and they send you a link to the same spot that does not explain where to start or/and begin. Again thank you for your help.

When you open the world of tanks launcher (not wargaming centre) click the 'Settings' option with teh gear beside it, then click updates, then check teh option to 'Enable the download of upcoming updates.'

in the Wargaming Centre, click the little gear icon on the vertical menu to the left of your screen, click the 'Updates' drop down menu, and click 'Download Updates in Advance.' Along with that, in teh WGC you can select the download speed, and a few other things, hope this helps

Sorry for the double post (above)..Can't figure out how to delete it...So frustrated from before I didn't have the energy to figure this issue out right now. Thanks again.

Umm...So I have this option activated, but It's not preloading? Maybe it was yesterdays 1.3gb update this update?? I need an explanation.

 

I think that update yesterday was the preload.

 

According to the news item web page : https://worldoftanks...eloading-guide/

In the FAQ section it stores that update to the Update folder in your client; "... since the update files will be stored in the standard folder on your computer С:\Games\World_of_Tanks\Updates (or, if you have installed the game in another folder Your drive:\Games\World_of_Tanks\Updates).

My folder has yesterdays update in it.

Attention Tankers!

 

We've released a preload of update 1.1 for those interested in getting a head start so they don't have to come home to an update notification.

 

For a full guide on how to enable the preload, visit the link provided below:

 

https://worldoftanks.com/en/content/guide/general/preloading-guide/

 

Have a good one!

 

Why do we get told of the release date the day before it happens????

 

Why is this the ONLY game to EVER to such a thing????

 

Do you guys realize how unprofessional this seems???

 

"Random" huge update the other day causes forum posts of ppl asking what's going on, my 3 clans are asking what is going on......this ONLY happens because of YOUR lack of communication with us. 

 

7 years and you guys don't know what's important?   I gotta get the one to tell the clans what the download is, and then of course I get tons of messages in our messenger(since we can't join a in-game group chat together we have our own) asking what the download is for and after I tell them it's for 1.1 of course everyone asks when it's happening, and of course since you guys have said NOTHING about it's release date, I get to tell them, oh, you know, typical WG.....they've not said for some reason.

It wasn't on there yesterday......we get to know a day or 2 in advance.....simply ridiculous.  Only game I've ever played where you don't know weeks in advance.
