...and now it won't launch.  I uninstalled because the client was crashing nearly every battle and wouldn't update.  Now it won't launch because it can't find updates.  I can't submit a ticket because WGCheck can't find the bloody game and I can't select it manually.  I'm having no problems whatsoever with WOT.  What the heck's going on?

Sounds like you should open a support ticket. Go to upper left corner of the page and click support. Click my tickets and then submit ticket.

The support ticket would be best but you could look somewhere like this - D:\Wargaming.net\World of Warships\World_of_Warships_NA - or just search for wargamming.

I've also found the most common cause of WoWs crashing for me is outdated video drivers. Regardless of what else you do install the latest of those.

Good luck!

Not necessarily outdated drivers, sometimes you need to go back to an older driver.

When you get it running again, turn off the new wows installer, and run the game via wows.exe.

 

Only run the installer in the background when you know there's an update.

Best bet would be to uninstall including the WGC and use the old installer,

WGC is and has been nothing but a buggy mess since they released it.

I am trying a clean install also. I have been having random critical error crashes mostly when the game goes to connect to a battle(although it has happened once while I was just looking at captains in port). The worst part is that you cant just alt tab and restart the game, even if you get task manager open it wont let you tab to it to kill WOWS, so it is a nasty hard reboot situation.  Last time this got me was the first clan battle of the night, ended up in a loss for my time as I got in 4 minutes late by the time I rebooted and reloaded.  I will post here if it seems to have done any good, just odd this seems to have come out of nowhere. One of the last few big patches seems to have caused some type of error in the code, no idea where it is though. I have never had this much trouble with WOWS until the last couple of months.
