Anyone else having the issue where they cant update the game for some reason? Think mine said something about an HTTP error or something. I then deleted the game and now I am unable to download it from the website. It just tells me the page cant be reached and that it may be temporarily down or moved permanently to a new website/location. As I said, just wondering if anyone else is having these issues besides me.

After giving the game a rest for a few months I've been trying to get back since yesterday and I've been getting the same error, being currently unable to download the game. Yes, I've already gone through disable firewall/restart your pc instructions.

Yes. Already deleted the game, thinking that a new install might fix it, but now I cant even reinstall the game. Says this.

This site can’t be reached

The webpage at http://dl-wows-gc.wargaming.net/na/files/MDcyICBcdT/WoWS_internet_install_na.exe might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address.

I'm having the same issue with WoT since last week and now with WoWS... seems that there's no fix yet

Also the wiki is down for some people, looks like it depends on your region or something...

Start -> Run -> Type "cmd" and press enter.

 

Type "ipconfig /flushdns" enter.

 

Close command prompt and try again.

Same here, thought it was just me since I am using a Mac, glad to hear that it is not just me although it sucks that there is an issue. Started the update, got the http error mentioned above. Uninstalled game, deleted files, downloaded game, tried to install and still get same error. Antivirus, firewall, and security features all disabled temporarily to do this. Also checked other online games, they update and play fine. There are a couple other threads on this, pics posted there are exactly what I am getting, just can't figure out how to post a pic cause I am an idiot.

Possible that the DL server is down at the moment. Can you update other games?

Clicking the link above started the download immediately. I'm curious if it's your ISP or something of that nature.

May be. Had a sudden drop yesterday as I was on the phone with a family member and looking something up on the internet. Came back up a few minutes later.

Was able to download Saints Row IV from Steam. It is proceeding at 8.2 MB/s currently.

Run the WG engine checker. You can check out all three WG MMO products.

BTW, if it does not fix it, At least you will have a report to send to WG tech support.

Would this work if I already deleted the game? Because that was one of the first things I did after a restart of the computer didn't fix the problem. Also, I have already submitted a ticket to Support as well. 

 

Also, just restarted after flushing DNS and still unable to DL the game from the website.

Seems like they haven't updated the WG Check Tool yet, at least for me it's not working.

(Only way for me to patch since the launcher is unable to apply patches after downloading/extracting them)
