The WGC is bad

There have been a lot of people who have been complaining about the new WGC over the classic launcher for WoWS. I figured those people were just typical haters of change and were complaining about nothing. I didn't really need to change to the WGC, since I only play WoWS, so I don't really benefit from having all of my WG games in the same program. The new launcher wasn't great, but it wasn't terrible either.

However, now that a new update has rolled around again, I can see why everyone hates the new launcher. I've tried downloading the update 3 times and each time it gets to around 50% and gets stuck. Each time I had to empty out the updates folder in the WoWS directory to restart the download. After the third attempt, I gave up and downloaded the old launcher from the website again and it downloaded without any issue.

Anyone else have this problem and know how to stop that from happening?

I have never had any issues with WGC downloading updates.  Only use it to download updates and nothing else other than the occasional file integrity check.

I use WGC all the time now. Glitches for me have been on par with the classic launcher, not often at all. Why some have problems & others don't is a good question. Although Windows updates have caused some issues.

WGC is one of those 'invisible' things for me now.  I have it set so that it exits completely when I quit it, and it doesn't open itself into the tray, or stay in it after exit.  It had the update loaded before I got home on Wednesday, since I started the launcher before I left for work.

I haven't had a problem with WGC since I got a new computer.  It isn't special, but it has only Windows and WG on it.  I found that STEAM/Office/whatever my wife had on there made for a bunch of conflict.

Mine has been working fine.  I am also glad they added the toggle where you can make the app close when you close the window.  That was the main thing I previously did not like about it.
