''Unfortunately, the Launcher no longer meets the latest industry and technology standards.''

That's bs,the launcher is more than fine,the only reason behind this move is to make some wot players check (therefore spend more cash) out your other titles.

So this way WG expects to increase the customer base.....

Well.....

 

I had already tried all of the WG games, including WoWs and WoWp, even before WGC was created. I do not like them.

I definitely do not need a launcher which can launch all of WG's games.

Well, nobody really expect a thing from launcher, so it can be only improved, even if i dont know how exactly. I mean, it has to download patch with one button to start the game. I just hope it will be not something trying to run in background whole time with some convoluted way of exiting, like some other launchers...

Not noticed any impact on game performance so I can live with it, however it does take longer to get into the game because of the second step.

I have to open the game center even if I have just one title installed and no interest in playing the others.

Currently it can get confused as to whether I want to run the EU game which I do want almost all the time.

My old NA account, The Test Server or the Sandbox.

 

Is there any chance that at some time in the future we don't have to have multiple copies of the game installed

I don't result to have asked for it in the first place, unfortunately when i had to reinstall wot from zero, I've got the game center; when i actually needed only the direct .exe...

BTW, what about Russia?

Are the Russian customers happy about the forced transition from the original launcher to WGC?

"Finally, I can finish my career in the game with a clear conscience!"

This change is going to be implemented just to make WoT players aware of other WG games and vice versa. There is absolutely no other rational explanation.

So.. the latest technology standards = more useless crap on our PC's? If that are the latest standards then we as a human race are going back instead of developing

You would never ask Steam for going back the way it was before before with manual patching and other annoying stuff.

I mean,it's handy for updates, switching between normal game, Common test and Sadbox (which is what the current iteration of sandbox is).

But like...forcing people to use it? eeeeeh

There is no way back.

 

However, I would suggest to give WGC a chance, as far as I know, it went through a lot of technical changes over the past couple of months, many that were based feedback that we have received.

The reason is that there's no logical explanation for us to run two launchers in parallel, and because of this, logically, we would want to unify this for the sake of lowering workforce that is required to maintain it.

Not many people remember the times of manual patching, and how tiresome it was. :teethhappy:

I don't need another trash running on background, starting straight from .exe would be fine for me.

Last time I checked WGC was launching 32-bit version of game.

If game was launched using shortcut to .exe from 64-bit folder it was running as 64-bit.

 

How about adding option to pick which version (32-bit or 64-bit) to WG Center?

Wouldn't it be stupid to implement 64-bit client but not be able to use it since WGC which you force so much doesn't have option to launch 64-bit client?

 

If in meanwhile this option is added than I am sorry but last time is checked there was no option and WGC launched 32-bit client.
