Howdy Boom Jockeys!

 

This here is a general announcement for the transition of the common test from the Launcher to the WGC. To make things more neat and tidy on your desktop, we have integrated the Common Test in the WGC.

 

Now all you have to do is click a few buttons in your WGC and bam you are in the CT galavanting around in the future tanks of your dreams.

 

For more information on these changes please click HERE

 

There is no ETA on when this change will go live, and is just a friendly heads up.

So we will have to have the wg center thing that everyone complains about?  All I have to do is click three buttons now and im in game .  With all due respect, can we work on the issues that are rampant, and stop changing things that have a chance of breaking more things?

For what it's worth, I have the WGC launcher thing and I think it's pretty slick. Not saying others haven't had issues, but my experience has been pretty ok.

just more crap they want to be running in the background scanning your computer for whatever they want..

 

 

as it is now, I have 1 icon.

 

I trust NOTHING that comes from the common test, as you people have dropped the ball over and over again with whatever you implement out of the common test..

Yup, same here.  Been working pretty well for me since I first started using it for Total Arena.

Yes, because thats legal..... Maybe remove your tin foil hat?

 

For those saying WGC is bad, it isnt. It has some issues, so it wont be mandatory for the live server until they are fixed (I hope).

If it works reliably, then fine. But last time I tried to use it, it was a disaster.

You probably won't have the option NOT to use it after the next update.  Last time I did a full re-install I couldn't find the stand alone installer any more.

It is kinda stupid that they want to push that launcher, I always close it after I update my game.

Ive had it installed since it was first released to the public 2 years ago. No spying, no really big issues (Missing features, that have now been added). So maybe you have some other issues....

I have had the WGC for a while now, no problems I am glad they are integrating the CTS into it now as well as everything is in one place.  The people who complain about this are the same people who complain about everything trivial.

Will we still be able to bypass the WGC/launcher and use the game exe directly after this comes to live? I only use the launcher when I need to update the game, and would greatly prefer to keep that functionality.

The WGC was just more resource hogging bloatware last time I tried it, so I really don't want it running in the background while I try to play, and opening it to launch the game then closing it afterwards is a lot more clicks for the same results as just directly using the game's exe.

When was the last time? Over a year ago? Because now its fine. You can change alot of settings like close everything when hitting x, mult account login, ect. Im assuming that when all games are forced, that the login system will be moved to the launcher. Which will require it.

dude you are not playing so much or long enough to make statement like that and many players like the launcher as it is and are not interested in a so called united WGC client. I have used the WGC for the Classic WOT version and for WoWS and i really dont like it at all. I can guess that a lot of other players agree that players would have the choice if the want a WGC version or a WOT only version for specific regions like EU, NA or whatever. To Force someone into one version only have never worked on other games and also will fail here

Um, most other game devs use one launcher for all their games... And it works... Just because I havent been here since 2010, or I dont have 40k+ battles doesnt mean what I say is wrong.....

Your words do not inspire confidence.  Currently it takes me 3(and one mouse scroll when not running any mods) clicks to get into the game, if I have to log in via WGC, that's going to be at least 6 clicks and a lot more mouse movement, unless they give us the option to auto close the WGC upon launching a game. 

 

Question, will the WGC currently remember your server preference?
