For the long time had the normal launcher, then reinstalled the entire OS and game with it.

 

Now, when I try to start the game directly, it just opens and closes...

 

Anyone knows how to start the game directly without going trough the WGC crapware, like in the good old days?

Reinstalled the Os huh?...

 

Let me guess, you either didn't keep the downloaded launcher installer file or didn't save it someplace when reinstalling your OS. :trollface: That was my key to keeping the old launcher after I reinstalled my Windows...

The installer that you can download on the WoT site is the old Laucher, so all you need to do is uninstall WGC(not the games only the laucher) and install the game via the installer from the WoT Website. Afterwards you can still install WGC if you need it for other games but it won't interfere with WoT unless you bind it to the WGCrap again. Maybe that changed lately but half a year ago i had the same problem and downloading the installer from WoT Website helped me out.

What's wrong with clicking play in the WGC tab for WoT. :amazed:

1. Uninstall world of tanks

2. Uninstall game center

4. download old good launcher > https://wot.gcdn.co/eu/files/WoT_internet_install_eu.exe

5. right click on the WoT_internet_install_eu.exe and select run as administrator

I'm using the same thing at the moment since I'd rather use the old stable launcher than be an WGC beta tester.

If you hang around in the Tech Corner you'll see why people don't like it, with the old stable launcher everything just works as it always have been doing, with WGC you end up in the Tech Corner posting log files rather than playing the game.

Personal experience tells me otherwise, though. :girl:

Been using it for over a year now and I can't remember ever having an issue with it.

You can't unfortunately. We had the old WoT launcher, but HAD. Sadly.

Sheesh, you all need to get a clue. You do realise when you install WoT it puts a shortcut to start the game without the WGC (which you can pin to taskbar)?

 

You can of course also do the following:

  1. Load WoT via WGC
  2. Once loaded, alt-tab out
  3. Right-click on WoT Icon and select pin to taskbar
  4. Use that shortcut to start WoT from in future.

 

Simples

As with all software it will of course work flawlessly for some while not for others, however in WGC case it's quite common that it don't work based on all the threads people post having issues with it.

I beg you pardon?

I don't quite understand what you are trying to say there.

 

And why would relating my own personal experience indicate I worship WG or something of that sort.

I had it the other day where when i clicked play on the launcher the game just closed, i ran the integrity check from the launcher and that fixed it.
