So, I dont get logged out very often. But when I do, I dont want to spend 5 minutes logging back in. When I click login, I should be redirected to the login screen. Not a game selection screen. And it doesnt even end there. Once you click the game you want, your not sent to the login screen. Because thats not the way WG logic works. No, your sent to the /index screen of that page (or as commoners call it, the home screen of a website). 

 

Then you have to ONCE-A-FING-GAIN click login. Only then are you able to login. But wait, there is more. Once you login, your not redirected to the origin site, no, just back to the /index screen. 

 

So, after your logged in, you now need to navigate to wherever you want to be. Because the system is too dam stupid to do it for you. I just hope not everyone gets this. Otherwise I guess it can account for why the forums seem to be dead now.

 

WG: FIX THIS!

Drives me crazy too.  But the internet is so new that you have to expect a few website hiccups.  Or something like that.

Have the game launcher shortcut on your desktop ? Does it work if you also have the WGC ?

You'd think that a company that can intricately design a MM and RNG to selectively punish players for 1.6 billion different variables based on whether WarGaming likes the player (if they pay, if they don't pay, if they're working on a mission, etc.) could easily design a simple and easy to use game gateway.  It's almost as if all those paranoid people could be wrong and maybe WarGaming is just kinda incompetent and not some evil and dastardly organization out to destroy individual players.

 

Weird.

Not sure how it takes you 5 minutes to log in, if you get the stupid page that lists all the games just hit back and then click login again.  Takes you right to the login page then, rather then needing to click though anything.  Also brings you right back to the page you clicked login from, just did that for this post.

 

I think it caches something the first time it loads something and if it isn't cached you get stuck going to the page listing all the games.

I think 5 minutes is an exaggeration, however, once a month or so, I have to go through the process you describe and I find it odd.  Odd that it even happens.  I can handle a monthly login.  When I click login, I sort of expect, in this day and age, that -- you know -- it will use my WG ID and just log me in.  At least at that point I can go where i wish.

 

Not so.  I hit login.  I get taken to the game selection screen.  I hit login again.  it takes me to a login only screen.  Then I have to actually Log In.  Once that is done, now I have to redirect myself back to the page I started from so I can get to the forums.

 

It doesn't take 5 minutes, but it's not less than 2 or 3 on any given day.  The frustration factor, however, is something that irks the heck out of me once a month.  I get how the OP feels about it.  In this day and age, this shouldn't be so freaking backwards.  It's like it's 1999 or something and they hired a cheap fresh out of college code monkey to script it.

 

Instead of making us enter codes to make the Mission UI 2.0 interface 'less cluttered' they could have taken the time to make this website login process 'more streamlined.'

yes this is another irritation.i think it makes you re-login to website/forums every 14 days.(seems to be about every 2 weeks).and yes i have to go thru that exact same convoluted process to be re-logged in. it seems so clunky and awkward and,frankly,poorly implemented.

 

 

could it be the same person who designed the website/forum login process, when the game first started....was promoted for brilliancy to design store/depot UI revamp, and because that was so well done,he was put in for the mission UI redo....and because of the phenomenal job with that,he was asked what other brilliant ideas he had...his awesome next steps were wheeliefreaks and codes!!!

 

i think he was a graduate of ITT...

 

edit: this has been going on for years.first time it happened,i thought i had screwed up my WoT login.i think its like a browser cache- history cleansing process. its done automatically for me,as i think,every 2 weeks.

Thats easy for you to say but...,  you do realise that you guys that get the long login get a 22% increase to win your games that day?

I only ever get the standard login so I do not benefit. This is pretty unfair.  :)

 

Happy Easter.

Sounds like an Internet Browser problem.

I agree, if you're not logging in automatically that is a browser issue not providing the login credentials. It doesn't matter if it's Wargaming or any other site.  Maybe the browser is clearing your login info periodically?

Nope. Given its happening to most people, its not on my end (I use opera).

It takes anywhere from 3-5 minutes for me to complete this. But thats only due to the fact that all WG sites are slow to load for me. But, thats probs due to the fact that they are unsecure, so my A/V has to scan them.

Time to turn off that a/v for the forums if it's hurting your web surfing that much.  I don't think your going to be inputting anything on the forums that you'd need to worry about being stolen anyways.

Its only the forums that does it. And its not that bad (Another forum used to take 10 minutes before they fixed it....). Plus I dont trust WG, so.......
