  1. The New WGC Launcher

    Something it was doing was offending either the router or the ISP. Here are people complaining of a similar problem: http://forum.worldoftanks.com/index.php?/topic/543805-wgc-broke-my-internet/page__st__20#topmost
  2. The New WGC Launcher

    I am not philosophically opposed to the launcher. I have Steam, Origin, Epic, GOG already. Indeed, I tried installing the launcher because I wanted to play Arena and Planes. However, it was so broken that not only did it not work, but it stopped anyone else in the house using the internet. And a quick Google search reveals many users complaining of the same. From that experience I fear that it will be unusable for some (including me) and we will be locked out of the game. I can imagine tech support saying to take it up with the ISP, or to first reformat the hard drive and reinstall Windows, etc.
  3. The New WGC Launcher

    I installed it for the Arena beta last year but never got to play because every time the launcher tried to download a game my household's internet was cut off and we had to wait 5 min and powercycle the router. I presume it was activating my ISP's anti-DDoS protection or something. No other company's launcher does this. A Google search reveals that Tanks and Planes users had the same problem. Has it been addressed?
  4. My WOWS client has been happily running for over two years, with minimal trouble, even after the last update. Today I played happily for a few games, then the computer hard locked with a blank screen and buzzing sound. This recurred every game thereafter, with seemingly increasing frequency until I was unable to spend more than about 30sec ingame. I tried installing the latest graphics driver, then uninstalled and reinstalled the game, to no avail. Then I switched from DX11 to DX9 and turned down all the graphics settings to minimum, and played two games without trouble. Then I tried turning all the settings to Maximum, except antialiasing, and the game ran well. Then I turned MSSA to 4x and the game crashed in the settings dialog. I turned it off and have not had trouble since. I have previously run 4x MSSA without trouble, and although my computer is old (6 years) it well exceeds the game requirements (3570K, 8GB, 390X). Definitely there seems to be something borked with the game at the moment. I have notice 2-3 AFK players per game lately. Hopefully this will help other people. I will continue to experiment with the graphics options to try to nail down a culprit setting, but DX9 and Low appears to be safe for me.
