Congratz wg. I cannot install this new launcher/ gamecenter and the game won't start from the old one. Please fix this. OR does anyone has any workaround solution to this?

Thanks.

It says that game center is replacing the old launcher. The installation is needed, if you want to play this game you need to download wg game center. Basically.

 

Problem is that the game center installation file is only supported for mac os 10.10 and above, and i am running 10.9.5. which means i can't even install it. Maybe is there some archive of older game center versions?

well problem is this is mac, and its a wrapper, not a native mac app. so even though i have found the wot.exe file, i cannot open it obviously because its .exe and not .app :/

Why don't you update your OS?

My 10 years old (Late 2009) iMac runs well with High Sierra (10.13.6), and 6 year old Macbook Pro (Late 2013) with Catalina (10.15.1). WGC instelled, and havn't noticed slowing. Maybe you should try. It is always possible to shange back to older OS versions if problems rise.

as the newest MacOS will stop supporting 32Bit applications they will switch to a 64 bit client

in the process of switching the old launcher to the new WGC this will also affect mac users

 

translation of the text on his pic:
The Wargaming.net Game Center replaces the standard Launcher for macOS

Application installation is require

  • Now all Wargaming games that work under macOS are available in the Wargaming.net Game Center
  • to continue play please download the Wargaming.net Game Center from the World of Tanks game portal. (download link hidden on the orange part)
  • If you have already installed the Wargaming.net Game Center, please launch the application and download World of Tanks from the "Allgames" page.

Good luck in battle!

 

macOS Mavericks was first introduced in 2013 and there are 9 newer Operating Systems, i would heavily suggest to update to the latest version possible on your Mac just for your own sake

i do support Macs at my workplace and if someone would come in still running Mavericks i would send them home and tell them to update first before bothering support

Install bootcamp and enjoy a complete new world.
Mac is a great "base machine" but the system sucks (i mean...it sucks quickly), bootcamp+windows 7 64bit or later can save you a lot of pain
I did that with mine otherwise the new API would have blocked me from a lot of games

(Actually win7 is just a patch, i hardly manage to run WoT on my machine but is not "unplayable", a newer system would be better
And bootcamp allows you to keep both mac and win at the same time)
