It's all fine and dandy, just don't make that sh!te mandatory for WoT as you did for the other games.

Is there anyway to stop WoT from automatically logging me in and instead allowing me to choose EU1 (Ranked) or EU2 (CWs/SHs) ?

 

I miss the opening animation ...

Why i can't chose server i want to log in with your "Updated Wargaming Game Center"?

Why its set on auto by default? Will You ever stop "improving" thing that didn't need to be focked up?

Only play WOT

 

I don't play or have any interest in the other Wargaming tiles

WOW looked interesting for a little while but just circling Islands in a big sea was boring after a while, maps were dull & predictable

 

so a 'game centre' cannot see the point at all not with just the 1 game of some interest

Unfortunately that's almost certainly exactly what WG will ultimately do, because it will then allow them to freely and unmercilessly bombard us with advertising for all of their other games, even if we clearly have no interest in any other WG titles whatsoever apart from WoT.

 

It also allows WG to give players direct access to the webstore to make premium purchases. Because separately opening the store via the website is apparently too complicated for some?

 

Plus, they'll simply claim that it'll make updating their games so much easier, when what it'll actually mean is that instead of us, the players, having the control to decide for ourselves when to update a particular game of theirs, as we currently can within the standalone WoT launcher, instead the carppy all-in-one launcher will simply auto-update in the background whenever it feels like doing it, regardless of what the user is trying to do on their computer at the time, just as so many WoWs and WoWp users have long since discovered.

 

So instead of forcing this unwanted horse puckey on WoT users, they should instead be offering standalone launchers to WoWs and WoWp users once again, just like those games used to have.

No need for that bloatware to take space up on the computer when the stand alone client works fine.

Take the game center away and give the entire idea a rethink.

 

I do not play world of warplanes or warships I do play world of Tanks.

Last time I installed the game center it was not only one of the most annoying and useless pieces of software I have ever installed it was impossible to remove.

You had to do a complete reinstall of the game to get rid of it.

Its more a piece of malware than a useful program.

 

When I play games I want the maximum resources of my system available for the games, I do not want your game center running in the background deciding on when to update and so on.

So change the way it works or shove it

Why would you want even more bloatware on your PC to begin with?

 

Also, locking existing installs to this client and making it impossible to roll back is a terrible idea. Not everyone has massive amounts of disposable bandwidth available to just re download games over and over again.

 

The current WoT launcher is a great piece of software that uses very little resources and doesn't automatically nest itself in the task-bar uninvited.

Two frustrating issues:

1) No option to shut the client in the background by default. At the moment you have to manually close the client after quitting the game.

2) Forces automatic server choice.

FYI - You CAN force the all-in-one client to offer you a server choice... simply tick the box indicated in the screenshot below.

Wow, you actually dared to show the World of Warplanes logo! The one game WG hates the most. Has been quite a long time since WoWp had that much PR. Well done!

Launchers are all nice and neat when you have a plethora of games to serve the customers. People today have a lot of these, like Steam, GOG, Ubi, Origin, and we do not need one more when there's only a handful of games on it. The old and original way of launching and playing WoT (and WoWs too for that matter) works just fine and is simpler.

 

For people wondering how can you install the old way still? Google a bit and you will find the original install file (always scan it if it does not originate on WGs servers), or send me a pm if you like.

I do not like game center.

Not only WG's gamecenter, I do not like any gamecenter.

 

- It runs all the time ... eating up computer resources during my dayly work.

- It updates game when I do not want to.    I prefer to update game when I decide to do so.

- It will still run when I start the game. I do not want another background program running with the game.

- It is full of advertisement. No, thank you, I do not want more unwanted advertisement.

 

Again, I hate any and every game center.

Cool, but please don't try to make it mandatory.  If you do, I might 'reward' your decision with monthly GPDR data report requests to both learn what information you're trying to harvest but also to make sure it's costing you money to force me down that path.

WG already made game center mandatory for WoWs and WoWp. So guess what is WG's next step.

:-(

Nope, you can still find the official download for the old WoWs launcher if you Google a bit.
