I am sorry that the topic isn't at the right place, the problem is, I cannot post it in ''current update'', as it says I cannot start a new thread.

So, I have two accounts, one - by the name of wtfzazo, and another one - which is this one, RadioFighterYR. The problem is I log in with the wtfzazo account all the time, and I have to go to 'disconnect' and relog from there every time with the Radio account. Why?

Because you have a auto-login mod?

they have implemented the auto-login in launcher now. Perhaps you need to logout. and then login with your prefered account, marking "remember me"

I'm not entirely sure if I understand the problem, but the solution for most problems concerning the forums and logging in is to delete the cookies of these pages.

When I had to change accounts on the forums, I once wasn't able to log out. Getting rid of all the cookies fixed that.

WG changed/updated the Game Launcher (the thing where you can start WOT, WoWS and WP). You can now no longer choose which server you log on to.

 

And is makes joining a platoon/team/clanbattle a lot harder also. It use to auto switch you to another server if the inviter was on another server. Now you get a message you can not join the platoon/team/clanbattle due to you being on the wrong server. The join button is grayed out. You first have to manually siwtch servers and than join the invite.

 

Also changing acounts, like the OP discribed is a pain in the butt now ...

Well I have 2000+ battles, also it would say like: you need N battles in order to post here, while I simply got 'You cannot start a new topic.'

 

Also, I am absolutely tired of WG implementing things nobody ever wanted...

You've got something wrong here with your game settings or something..

On my login screen, I clearly get to choose which server to log into.

Running vanilla on my machine BTW.

And you're certain you're using the unified wargaming game centre thingy?

Ahh yes, not enough coffee sry..

No idea what this unified thing is, but the stand alone works, so why not use that?

You can not when you play also other games from WG. I also play WP and WoWS sometimes and than you need to use the Game Launcher.

Pretty sure that it is only WP there requires it, since I have a WoWs standalone client.

 I can confirm that WoWS works fine with its own launcher.

 

(I don't actually play WoWS anymore as they left me with 3 duplicates short of getting the 2nd anniversary flag and still haven't put the Imperator Nikolai in the shop....)

I use the WG Game Center (or watchamacallit) and I was asked for my own choice if I want to use the unified login or not. I just said no. So I still get the good old login window like all the years before.

 

Apart from that, there are many mod packs featuring an auto login, combined with the choice of a preferred or last visited server. And I can tell you, those mod pack installation routines with that overwhelming variety of mods are confusing like hell. I tried two last week, after a couple of years without mods. I had to uninstall them both, because I always got more than I wanted, or the opposite of what I wanted :hiding:

Here's a question tho.
Why waste your time with 2 accounts?

Unless you have such a high battle count with *edited* stats and you want to have a more colourful name in xvm (with all the *edited*  that comes with it) I don't see why.

The only good thing about that change is... that if you run two accounts, you can use your main on the launcher. And press logout via the menu in the garage to get to the login screen. And have him remember your alt account instead. I don't have an alt on WOT. But I have one for WOWS as I wanted to test out Texas with the new friend's rewards. I just launch the game via the center, press esc and logout, and the alt is ready to go as I have "remember" me on. Takes less then 20 seconds, and you don't have to remember two passwords or emails. 

 

Other then that... I really did not see the need for it. Tho handy as it might be for some.

For those times when WG thinks you should "take a break".

 

Or for when you are very drunk

 

Or when you are bored and need new goals (obj 260x2)

 

Or when you need to go into a trg room and two PCs

 

Or for when WG gives you are forum ban
