Played 3 games under the new patch (with T34) and now I am OUT, while battle was loading.
Client crashed and will not load again "Updating launcher etc"

I don't even get the slightest chance of downloading anything. After a few moment just get the screen that it failed and to check the log. Didn't find anything in their either.

Same for me...Started a bit, than again went back to "checking for updates..." message and, again, error message after 5 mins of waiting.

Edit:
WOW!..Finally started downloading....but....wth...why it's downloading the full game instead of downloading updates?..or the 7.2 update has 2.56 GB?

Same as the above, if only I knew where the log file is XD
Edit: I think a workaround this would be to close the launcher and reopen it, it seems another update would start downloading...

I think we should download the full game client with updates installed...maybe it downloads faster...

Mine has finally started. Painfully slow download, but it is only updating not downloading the full game.

File size is 617.55mb

U should stay at direct download...I've tryed via torrent and it doesn't pass 20 KB/s...0.5-1 KB/s steady...

I'm glad I'm not the only person experiencing this slow download speed. Can't be bothered installing the whole game and sorting out mods again. Guess I'll just read the forums and wait... :blink:

617.55 MB "should" only take a few seconds on my connection...

Use torrent for download (those 600MB took few mins only).
[but maybe it depends on popularity of WoT in your country.. nice to have neighbors as seeders]

Update Launcher , checking for updates. This is just now at 9 am GMT on the 31st of march. does not work.


So: payment does not work via paypal because playspan is crap
The game will not launch
WE have all spent time and money on this game and this is the tanks we get... TOTAL ignorance from wargaming and CRAP services.


THANK you!!!
