I do not want a launcher. I bypass the current one. No hidden app running in the bg please.

You can do that with WGC.  You can have WGC not run on startup and you can run the worldoftanks.exe directly, or you can have WGC close when you launch the game.

old launcher is better? what do you think

 

I use both and prefer the convenience of the WGC.  Especially the ease of switching accounts.  With the luncher I have to type the email address every time, with WGC I just select the account I want.  With the luncher I have to wait for updates to download, with WGC it's downloaded and installed without any effort.

Exactly. Keep your launcher.

Why you don't bunch all servers together? So you can switch between servers (EU,NA, RU) with one account?

 

This would require a completely different level of set of work. 

This saved account function is a good way to centralise your account stuff to make it easier in the future!

I'm going to stick to the old launcher if it's fine by you, cheers!

Works like a charm and has served me very well for 8 years now.

 

For those of you wondering: You don't need to install WoT. You can just copy the WoT folder to a new computer, run the launcher and it will work (and update) fine. Have done this for years, as a matter of fact my install directory is still that from the Closed Beta and it still contains all the early changeling.txt files :D

It is.

 

That depends the new is better for a lot of other things including support help and checks for support as well as updates and if you play other WG titles or play on multiple servers.

Don't like it. It takes now longer to get back ingame if lose Internet connection.
Also takes longer to log in if you have not been connected that day.
Also if crash happens, it creates this logger process that remains in memory unless you manually kill it in the process and can ramain there all day if you don't notice.

"Your convenience will always be our top priority"
 

OK, thanks. My convenience is not having to use WGC, because I:

- rarely play more than one type of game in one day

- only play on one account

- do not want a permanent login

- do not like unnecessary software runnung while I am playing the game

- do not want automatic updates, because I want to know when an update is being downloaded and installed and I am willing to wait for it

- WoWP which requires a WGC has to be launched twice before it actually enters the hangar, first login always fails (for me anyway)

- reasons I have forgotten

 

I do understand that for other people it can be a useful tool. Keeping both options available is a way to fulfill your promise with all the players.

Very nice changes. I use the WGC for quite some time now and it's working really great. I would recommend anyone that uses to old launcher to atleast give WGC a try.

 

And a very big +1 for adding the setting to completely close WGC by just pressing the close button :great:

For people like me who run a newish laptop with only a 120Gb SSD drive to have to install this on top of the WOT game client (even the SD version) just takes up space I dont really have to spare. I tried to delete WGC on the laptop but it went all shirty on me when I tried to run the game so I had to let it reinstall WGC. Fortunately the other computers I have all had the client installed sometime ago so up to now I have not been 'required' to install WGC. To me WGC should remain optional for the user - when there is an update with the older computers I have it just updates in the background with 'Game Updater' and I dont see the need for WGC. Is there some burning reason to make us all have WGC?

Is this something 'New and Improved' to mess something else up?

 

I remember when I used to be able to make tickets and then send them onwards to WG and sometime within the next few days, I would get an answer (though not necessarily the one I wanted!)

 

Then they brought in the WGC. A very good idea (in principle). And certainly informative (if you need to read everything that WG want you to read).

 

Though, since the update, I cannot now submit any tickets at all!

(Its probably something simple like Active_X turned off (or Caps Lock ON, I don't know!)

 

However, I cannot get any help to fix this, as I cannot contact WG and because of this I cannot get this problem fixed, as I cannot contact WG and because of this I cannot get this problem fixed, as I cannot contact WG and because of this I cannot get this problem fixed... Its really a chicken & egg situation BUT it doesn't cause WG any angst because I cannot contact WG and I cannot get this problem fixed, as I cannot contact WG and I cannot get this problem fixed etc etc…

 

So because I cannot contact WG & complain, WG think there are no problems to be answered... ENOUGH!

 

This Forum post is really a cry for help from WG.

 

The Customer Advisors you had were the friendly face of WG.

 

Rectifying problems with ease and allowing me to get back into the game ASAP.

If the menus in the GC run above 10fps I might consider using it, also, CLOSE it when I click play.

 

For the love of all that is holy, CLOSE. IT. WHEN. I. PRESS. PLAY. ON. A. GAME... PERIOD. Thanks.

I would agree with most. 

I rather have the option of running without it. 

Eveonline also has something similar and although it's my fav game I hate this part also in it.

Please have option to get rid of it. Now am afraid of attempting to remove as I see people saying it actually renders the client unplayable... Disappointing

I was against Game center in it's early iterations, but now it is quite useful and now I use it and I like it.

The only thing You should do is going to Settings and change them in that way You need.

Cheers.

Your statements seem confused.

 

There is a vocal minority who are against WGC for reasons already explained to be misconceptions.

 

Even if you use it you can run without it apart from the days when you need to update the client.

Nah, I'll skip it like I always do, it is fine with how the client is now. No need for more clients to be running on my computer.
