New Game Launcher is undeniably terrible

The new launcher is so bad I can't even give it the terribad name it is that bad.  My boys share a computer and they are now logging on to each others accounts inadvertently.  The game shows one users logon then logs on the person who launched the launcher.   Seriously this is just a terrible interface.

Told you so, if you want it gone. You’ll have to uninstall each game one by one and then the Wgc itself. Then go find on old launcher file and redo load from there. It looks like it hasn’t been improved that much. I feel your pain as I dealt with the launcher for a good 3 months.

I'm the only one in the house who plays WoWs, so I don't have that problem with multiple accounts. I also have not had other problems that people have reported with the WGC since I installed it at the beginning of the year.

Yeah the new Launcher does not take into consideration multiple accounts on the same computer. That is a huge oversight on their part and one that is easy to fix. All they need is the option to "turn off auto login" under settings. Most people probably don't share a computer so it isn't an issue, but for those families who do share, this is a big deal and needs addressing. Auto login is a nice feature to have for many of us, but IMHO whoever designed it probably doesn't have a family and didn't think about those who do.

Just make a short cut to the EXE and bypass the launcher completely. C:\Games\World_of_Warships then make a shortcut to WorldOfWarships application.

There is a little head icon in the lower left that lets you log out or change the account.  I believe that's the universal "user" icon for pretty much everything.

Amenhir is correct, you can click on that icon in the lower right hand corner of the Launcher and log out. 

I did not know the head was the universal symbol for that though, nice information to have Amen, thanks.

I didn't even check that at first.  I hit the "gear" icon for settings first.  It's not a very intuitive looking piece of software.  A simple "logout" button in the upper right would work better.

I had played with all the settings when I first started the program. Honestly I never even noticed the "little head" icon in the corner until you pointed it out. You are correct, probably needs a tweaking to make it more user friendly/noticeable.

Way too many clicks in the game already, making a shortcut to the .exe  done.

Uh, you are playing a game where you might click the mouse 300 or more times firing at enemy ships but another click to open the game is too much?

Actually, have you even used the new Game Center? With it there are actually fewer clicks to open the game because it does the login for you. I open the Game Center, click "play" and am sent right to the Port.

It's not so much the launcher but the inability to support multiple logins.

That should be easier.

If you don't check the remember login box, it will prompt you when you login.
