I can't update my game from 9.18 to 9.19 for some reason, I launch the game, It completely skips the launcher and goes to the login screen, I try to log in, and then a window pops up saying that I should update my application, so I click the update window on the app and it just turns off the game without updating anything...

Can anyone help me?

Please fire those morons responsible for the UI changes. First they make the tank stats window in the garage borderline useless, now they screw up the missions screen to be even more unreadable than it was before. What's next, giant rectangles for every icon, button and so on, windows 8 style? Cause you know, it's so 'modern' looking. I'm guessing they're the same idiots that decided to merge the auto aim and turret lock button, just so they could 'simplify' something that was perfectly fine before... I didn't mind all those OP tank, be it premiums (load gold or avoid) or normal ones (wait for the nerf) that much. It's a ruskie game, we can't expect them to do business in civilized way. But this? Changing stuff just for the sake of changing stuff, and in the process making the feature useless? It's just pure stupidity. Oh, right. It's WG, should have seen something like this coming...

I believe that "Changing stuff just for the sake of changing stuff" is what some people have to do in order to justify their employment. :hiding:

2 things annoying at the moment one came in 9.18 and thats dimming the tank icon when it has an incomplete crew.

The previous version was fine as you could recognise the tank easily and tell it had missing crew.

 

The other matter is something thats long been needed stopping complete idiots clicking the map constantly.

I don't mean  2 5 or even 10 clicks its constant attention seeking why dodnt you do as Im telling you clicking.

 

This is unfair because it prevents any other player on the team from clicking or typing as their click or message is scrolling rapidly up the screen.

I suppose I can stop and block them hoping not to get shot while doing that but for it to do any good 14 people have to do it.

You need an automated system say x many clicks in a game is your limit or something to just stop it happening nearly evry single game

Discover new, easier ways to browse battle missions, events, and specials.
<a href="https://worldoftanks.eu/en/news/general-news/919-interface-improvements/">The full text of the news item</a>

 

On what planet is this an improvement?

I see a mission, it gives sod all information on that mission, only says 'No suitable vehicle'. How is that useful, tell me what vehicle I need ffs. There seems to be an expectation that I will regularly trawl the forums for news and intructions but in reality I just want the info in game/garage, I dont want to waste time, as I am now, trying to discover the intricacies of a pretty pointless mission.

And the rewards; fire extinguisers and 50% exp. Who uses fire extinguishers? What use is 50% exp when you already have more 100% exp than you can use.

 

If you want to improve missions then start with the personal ones, drop the arty missions (then hopefully even less people will use arty) and make some of the others dependent on my skill, not luck (trying to get 2k dam from Tds when there is one, or none, TDs) or my 'teammates' (spot and let your teammates cause damage is actually 'spot, get killed because teammates spent so much time ranting that they want a spot that they failed to stop typing in time to shoot what you spotted)

 

This is just a different interface to become accustomed to, it is not an improvement at all.

1/10 for effort. 0/10 for effect.

Still no new maps, too busy arranging pointless 'missions' and writing blurb telling us how it was something we asked for.

You obviously have some sort of AI. It is refusing to update as 9.19 has nothing useful and several drawbacks. Find something else to do for a month or so then check back, see if they have sorted it out for 9.20. Just don't hold your breath...

one of the good things in this update + supply box challenge :)

though it's not stated how often you can do them...

 

A. Wow, supply box challenge is just bleuuur, I wasn't aware that people actually see them as something useful. What are the tokens for, btw, anyone know?

B. You are asking for useful information to be put in a logical place, at point of use. But the is WG, info will slowly be disseminated across the forums over the next few weeks. There will be multiple threads asking the same question but WG will ignore it in the next update, perhpas following current trends by giving us an 'interface upgrade we all asked' for that makes it even more obscure.

I have 0.6 credits in game, next game 0.7, next game 0.6

 

FFS WG - not everyone has millions of credits and I need to see exactly what I have from game to game - please restore or give option to have original bank balance back...


 

changing things that are not asked for or requested is a stupid thing to do.... concentrate on what does need fixing!

I want "reserve vehicle" tick box back. Managing dozens of tanks without the tick box is not user friendly. I actually want an option to add nickname and remarks on a vehicle. I may come back to play a tank after a few months and completely forget what I was planning to do, such as researching the engine before the gun because stock suspension could not support the weight of a new gun etc.

 

These filters and options are just so obvious and useful that WG will never implement them. The option to tag or rename locally is almost essential when there are so many tanks available.

 

But being obvious and actually useful does not encourage spending so WG are unlikely to ever implement it.

Load latest XVM, select options carefully (auto return crew, prevent shooting teammate (helps you through some of the anger spikes) and if you're using a 15" screen then the zoom options) and enjoy the game despite WGs best efforts to degrade it.

Jeez Polski

it seems you actually don't know that in English your words come over as a self-superior conceited smug arrogant type of person

cant believe that anyone can have such a bad opinion of most people that play a game called WOT its a game, its not real just a pretend video game to most people Polski
 

(Polski, most people die in the 1st minute in WOT crap 4 minute turbo battles, its why a mini-map is almost never used
