I'm fine with the Game Center, took me a bit to get used to it (and at first I did not touch it cos lots of bugs) but everything's okay now.

Yuuup, rip old launcher, you were perfectly adequate...and that was the problem.

 

WGC is annoying and does stupid things in the background even if you tell it to shut up. What further proves the fact that this is a stupid idea is the link to the article with OCTOBER in it instead of NOVEMBER.

 

 

Just load it when there's an update. Update the game files and exit out of it and it's not running until next time. 

 

Launch the game as usual through the desktop shortcut to the .exe preferable the 64bit version.

I don't get what people are so upset over. It keeps all the announcements in one place as well as all the other instances of WoT installed. Saves me having to go to the website every time to see new posts. 

 

I'd understand this whining if the launcher is seriously decreasing performance. But since it isn't you just paint yourself as a cry baby throwing a tantrum over literally nothing. 

 

Just stfu already with the WGC whine. It's done absolutely nothing to you lmao.

cant even remember what the old launcher was like.


Clunky I think sums it up.

 

I wonder how many WGC haters drive a 1982 Lada.  I mean it works perfectly well, why would I want a modern car taking up resources in my driveway?

Run wgc, launch wot, open task manager and kill all the process connected with WGC
I do it all the time cuz i want to run smooth and the WGC eat quite a few MB for my taste

But why should we be forced to go though the hassle every time.  What a waste of time loading the bloatware.  Nothing wrong with the old one, it worked perfectly well.  Now this is just about sucking our network bandwidth without making it obvious.  

 

40K games, wondering if I should give up.  what with all the silly cars, continuous power creep, endless fake tanks.  Stop wasting effort on these things and bring us more maps - maybe to premium plays.

I don’t think uninstalling the game will work , could try leaving it on your drive and not play it . :playing:

I think you'd probably be uninstalling pretty soon anyway if a triviality like the way the game launches is such a big deal :)


Yep it's what pushed me to uninstall, the final straw so to speak. I haven't played for over a month anyway. Pity I can't give away the gold I have on the account, otherwise we could have had a compo on the forum.

Got used to it now,still cause a fap from time to time when I go to log on in here and end up in WoW's:D

 

Out of all the problems the game has got, I think the GC is the least of them

You aren't.

 

You can let the operating system manage memory like it is supposed to do.

 

Really it's only using RAM which would sit empty otherwise.

Old launcher was garbage anyway. Now I have live, CT and Sandbox on one launcher and they are updated without need to launch 3 separate launchers.

Don't get the fuss, seems fine to me, could be worse, could be Origin.....

 

It allows pretty easy switching of accounts, keeps all games/versions of the game together, easy pre-load of updates, so has some useful features IMO that easily outweigh any negatives.

Cue visions of garden implements coming to life and going on the rampage.

 

A bit like the mechanical diggers in the Goodies from years back.

Yes, when you update your OS.

I never understood people buying Macs to run PC games.  It's like cutting your right leg off as preparation to run a marathon.
