Unified Launcher is a waste of space, time and effort. But it is so depressingly fashionable nowadays. 

Like those websites asking you to download their download manager first, instead of just downloading the file straight in the browser. 

 

If that buggy piece of sh*te becomes mandatory for WOT as well then I will be even more motivated to stop purchasing premium content.

The unified launcher is handy only if you play all 3 games, but you can still remove it and use the normal .exe files or shortcuts. It's not locked to the new launcher.

I find it annoying....   I don't play WOWP anymore, it just doesn't stack up to Warthunder for airplay though I hate being one shotted all the time in the tanks in that game... might as well all be arty ;)

If it is not yet, it will be soon enough, because they have to justify its existence somehow.

It's a great launcher for all those players that whine all the time about WoT, as for me it actually caused WoT to not start up again :great:

It failed to install WoWP. It failed to find the other installed games. Support failed to fix it after many hours of reinstalls, sending logs, port forwarding etc. Fortunately WoT and WoWs still work. Do not use.

They could have drop the unified launcher and just added the games to Steam instead.

That way players that prefer the old launcher can use that, and players that wants games unified can just use Steam.

You can still run wowp from wowp.exe but to download updates for it now, wg gamecenter is mandatory

 

and game center doesn't work for me, it can't find any wg games to import and when attempting manual import it says no compatible games in folder"%1" and to download the whole game it can't connect to download service, so after the next update i'm stuck

 

don't play it that much antway

No idea why every gaming company thinks players need "a launcher" or a "unified center" for our games. Like, are we morons that can't double-click an icon from our own desktops ?!

Seriously WG, grow a brain and cancel that "bright" idea of yours. It's rubbish, buggy and takes unnecessery RAM.

on the wowp forum when asked why remove the old launcher, MrConway  said this >

Because it is old and to be honest, not very good.

 

well the old one worked fine and the new one doesn't, why do they always "fix" things that work fine and ignore things that don't
