Hasn't this been around for a while?    I have always used this and I have been here over a year.  Seems cool to me.

Looks good!  Gotta Love one stop shopping.

So I switched like 3 years ago and what ever and there was supposed to be some kind of reward way back then. WGC has been on my PC since it inception, what is it 2 or 3 years ago? More? Now I am participating? Check your old logs, Captain Kirk.

I have zero interest in any game other than World Of Warships. Do I have to install this anyway? It seems so, as whenever I try to start the game, it insists on taking me to the Launcher installer, and canceling out of that end the game loading.

I also have no interest in having this installed on my system. The only Wargaming game I play is World of Warships, and I don't want some client running that is using up memory, trying to sell me things and, I assume, harvesting a load of my data. The only benefit of a centralised system like this would be if you could freely change servers and keep progress and purchases to play with international friends, but that's not an option.

 

I've been a player for years but if there is no way around this I will likely delete my account.

more like tired of beeing forced to install additional launchers/stores/centers etc for every different company these days... especially since I only play one game in WGs case and now I basicly have to install 2 things for 1 game...

I've been wondering this for months now. lol. I keep seeing people post this question but never get an answer.  It seems like as Steam users we can just ignore any updates relating to a launcher bc Steam is our launcher.

why yall getting mad about the launcher its virtually no extra storage

you arent even installing another game

its just "in case" and its easier for everyone to recieve the updates more quickly. 

nobody cares if wows is the only game you play and you have no other interests in other games made by WG. The answer is simple. dont play them. Its the same launcher, just easier for everyone.

@IDAMAN_04 Because it's more intrusive and it's unnecessary. The standalone launcher has worked fine alongside the WGC for over a year, why change it now? The answer is because they either want to push something or because they make money from selling data. I'm not saying delete the WGC because I'm sure some people find it useful, I'm just saying don't make it mandatory.

You're right, the answer is simple and if WGC continues to be mandatory I just wont play wows. I was just expressing my opinion because I quite like the game, I semi-regularly spend money in the shop and it would be a shame to lose all that (and to lose another player for the sake of a silly change).

i just want to play warships  I do not want to install any more stuff.  Is this mandatory?  honestly its about the last straw 

I was a little nervous but I just did it and it was easy peasy took less than 10 min  . Every body has your stuff anyway there's no real worries it works the same as always looks good ..

sad  issue is that with over 600 days of premium left and a hatred for the game center a forced install of that... lets be nice and just call it spyware... that also crashes your system and is constantly doing stuff in the background ... is annoying as there is no way in hell WG will ever refund you for the hundreds of days you have left on your premium account.

and wargaming does what they want anyway, years ago they said ""surface combat only""  and now the submarines are shoved down our throat.  they also stated """realistic warships"" and now they are releasing warships that where a brain fart in some designers pet hamster.

ah well the average lifespan of an online game is only 5 years so by the time all my premium is gone the game will be dead as well

So what that's it? now with time off of work and dollars spent I am unable to get into the game.. Gents help me out here.. I love WoWs  but promise you never get another cent if you don't fix this. atleast let us USE the old launcher as it has been working not force this on us. if people want it then that's GREAT for them But I DO NOT. PLEASE FIX THIS WG. oh and have a fine day.. instead of playing WoWs suppose ill take my time and $ elsewhere. thanks for all the fish

well the "not Russian" owner of Wargaming.net has your money now and if you read the EULA you can not sue Wargaming.net unless they broke the law .. but as the EULA also states that wargaming.net can make any changes they want.... your like me.. stuck between grabbing another pc without any data but just the game  and a hell of a firewall or kissing your cash bye bye.

WG does what it wants, the staff won''t answer questions they fear may cost them their job.

 Yes sir you are indeed correct and I know from other issues with WG in the past they don't care anyway just had to "voice" my frustration with this crap for lack of a better term. as I said Oh Well just go and play something else and never spend another dime on WoWs. have a great day sir and GL with this I have no hope. after all this time and $ spent that is depressing.

i got a reply !!!!!

 

New answer to your ticket ID: XXXXXXXXXXX

 

Hello,

 

Thank you for reaching out to Wargaming Player Support.

Currently the game can be launched only via the Wargaming.net Game Center (WGC). For detailed information about using it please check
the news.

Get in touch if anything needs clarifying.

John Snow - Wargaming support

It is not the same launcher.  It never was.

WGC files are downloaded and installed with the rest of the game, whether you use the WGC or the classic launcher.  In case of the latter, the WGC files sat unused (presumably unused, but don't know for sure), until today...

A red flag for many people is that ostensibly the WGC offers help with very simple tasks that no one asked for help with.  This, from an application that - in it's initial form at least - took up several additional gigabytes of storage space and ran very busy in the background.  Users noted this and took the WGC as spyware.

WGC deservedly received an extremely negative reception from the community when introduced, and that view still holds for many today.
