What needs to be done is described below:


Social modules for World of Tanks.


The purpose of the survey is to test the functionality and usability of the two social platforms for World of Tanks: Overwolf and XFire. Both are free to download and use.

Overwolf is a new social application customized specifically for World of Tanks functions and menus.

Download Overwolf: Link

XFire is popular application that combines multiple gaming tools into one powerful tool to alleviate the need to run multiple different gaming related programs.

Download XFire: Link


Please download the applications, install them, use them for a few days and take part in the Questionnaire below.

  
Questionnaire

5. Voice communication function of which module do your like better?

6. Quick messaging, uploading images and videos to Facebook, Twitter, YouTube of which module do your like better?
  
7. Which module is better at video recording?

8. Have you had any difficulties running the two modules (bugs, glitches, malfunctioning, etc)? Overwolf? XFire? Both? Please describe in detail.

9. Does any of the two modules need improvements (rebinding the keys, changing user interface, settings setup, etc)? Overwolf? XFire? Both? Please describe in detail.

10. What are the most important features that are available in Overwolf and XFire? Which of them are common? Which are unique for one of them?

11. Would you use one of the two modules during your regular World of Tanks sessions? If yes, which one?

There is no strict deadline, however the sooner you submit the report, the better. As always. :)

I'd prefer a simple draw or a general questionnaire, instead of having to download programs I probably won't use anyway.

Well, it might not bring me a WoWP account, but it chould be an opinion you should think about:

I do not intend to install any software from third party developers.
I do not want to spend time with interferences or security leaks.
A well developed Game should include all necersarry tools integrated by its developer/publisher.

Anyway, looking foreward to the new game!

Not a bad decision. Especially since after downloading Overwolf, WoT doesn't even launch!.. Maybe the problem is that I run the 0.67 test.. Still. Whenever I try to sign in to the client I exit to desktop and a webpage opens up in russian sending me to the download client page..

UNINSTALL. thanks.

EDIT: I uninstalled Overwolf but the client still won't allow me to sign in. It loads fine until the sign in screen but then exits to firefox.. wtf...? WoT worked perfectly until today when I downloaded and installed Overwolf...

"Overwolf is the new social add-on created for easier gameplay and social interaction between players, specially adapted for functionality and menus of World of Tanks."

My social interaction with other players doesn't benefit from overwolf

What would help me would be to allow server roaming or even just oneshot transfers from EU to US and vice versa (all my friends apparently play on the US server while I invested lots of time on EU already. Even the EU resident friends that is)

Just installed overwolf and really liked the look of it and already had xfire however its a shame i have to say this, Its awful i cannot start WOT...


If  WOT is running its fails to initialize overlay so constantly asks to retry...


If i run WOT first then put Overwolf on and tab into game i had the biggest crash ever a grey error box appeared and that terrible "Buuuh" sound like if you have done something wrong appears , The box appeared about 20+ times and shut my WOT down..


So yet again i try to give it a try by running Overwolf before WOT has been Started, WOt attempts to load the News feed screen appears and as the game goes to load, The game just shuts down and wont restart, I tried this a couple of times and every time i get some overlay message come out of the Taskbar about pressing Keys to Enable Overwolfs in game chat..


I know this is Beta guys, But imo its very very far from Stable to even be put out there for the general public to try.. http://forum.worldof.../facepalmic.gif


I am hoping there is a fix or a work around as from what i have seen i already prefer it to Xfire  http://forum.worldof...Smile_great.gif

I'd take Overwolf over X-Fire anyday, I tried X-Fire for a while, and my god, what a load of crap.

Just downloaded this Overworlf app, and it works awesome already! :Smile_honoring:

Very convenient and well-designed. Will right y'all devs a report soon :lol:

Few glitches on initial loading but running WoT first then running overwolf seemed to correct any install / integration issues.

One comment is Xfire is obviously and has ben for many years advertising sponsored. wondering if Overwolf will go down the same lines.

Will provide responses once all features have been tested and verified.

Thanks for the opportunity partake in testing.
