Just don't force us to install it.... leave us an option, launcher vs wgc...cost you nothing.

It's good for you! It gives you buff to your RNG rolls for damage

It does, If they give us the option none will use it so will be another failed project :)

It's nice that you've added this, but there's one key feature missing: "Exit Game Center when I launch a game".

Wrong. It costs them the time and money to maintain 2 different launchers. Give it a try, it works fine.

Nice, i think you should also add maybe WoT Blitz as a way to download on PC instead of just Steam because i like to play that too :)

Exactly this.

I really do not want WGC is running in the background while I play the game.

I remember a time when on starting WoT I was treated to an Awesome video with Awesome music featuring tanks splashing through water, crashing through walls, blowing stuff up.  It was great.

 

Now ... nothing.

 

I presume this is due to the game centre launcher.

Well you can alt-tab and quit it if it bothers you that much.  Although it's not actually doing anything and if your operating system needs the memory it will move the game centre to disk cache.

You clearly need some information: 

 

1) WGC is important for a lot of things other than promote other titles. 

2) People who work on WGC don't work on balance or MM, please learn and understand how game development works. 

3) Please refrain from making comments like these until you understand the above. 

4) There's a difference between fix and develop. 

5) Thank-you and have fun.

The Launcher isn't really being maintained. The only significant thing that changed in the recent past are the news displayed and I'm sure not only is it quite easy to make a feed that works for Launcher and WGC but also most people who don't want to use WGC could do without a feed if that means they can keep using the launcher.

 

Also, I gave it a try, hated ever bit about it. One of the main reasons I barely played TWA was because WGC was (is) mandatory, and as I said, I hate everything about it. You know what works fine though? Creating a Link to the WorldofTanks.exe on my desktop and double clicking it. And whenever I need to update my client, my client will inform me, that I need to, I click "Update" and it does. No hassle whatsoever with any launcher of any sort.

They might not be developing the old launcher actively, but as the games technology moves forward, there might be changes that needs to be done to the launcher in order to still support the game. And that work could have been skipped if some people where not so conservative...

It would be nice if you could turn off the non-stop spam about the same thing though...

Like the 11 times that this was displayed, within 5 days. (2 days it was displayed 3 times each..)

(Only a matter of time before it's 22 times within 5 days, when it's 11 times a ship, and 11 times a tank, lol.. :P )
