Steam Version login question

I run the steam version of WoWS on the NA server. I had a friend attempt to join the game but in their haste they started their account on the EU server. As it is new, we don't care about losing any ships associated with the EU account, but even after we uninstall and reinstall, the steam version will autoload the EU server and username automatically, bypassing any login screen. We would like to be able to use a steam version but just create a new username (same email address) on the NA server. 

I imagine there is a way to do a "clean install" where it prompts us to login or create a new account and choose servers again, but it is escaping me as to how this is done. I also imagine there is a cookie or file created in the game folder that contains the autologin info; and if we can delete that it will allow us to set it up right without uninstall ING. I remember an error after an update where the login screen came up on its own. 

I'm hoping someone out there has accounts on different servers and may know how best to resolve this. We don't necessarily need to ever switch back and forth, just need to make the move once. WoWS support continues to confuse this issue for a want to take an account from one server to another. We don't care about the EU account at all. We just want to log into the NA server and a team's autologin prevents this.

Self reply should anyone else see a similar problem: I figured out this issue. 

 

Steam creates a "steam_api.dll" file when you first log into WoWS. Once this is created the login screen is bypassed and you go to your designated server/account. This file is found under Steam Library> SteamApps> Common>World of Warships. 

By changing the name of this (I used "2steam_api.dll") the game seems to launch with the option to login to the server of choice, username etc. I hope this is helpful for anyone should they encounter a similar issue as I did. Also, please advise if I am missing anything here.
