Couldn't find anything posted on the ASIA site about it,but NA has just introduced a new launcher that works for all WG titles.For existing players you can download it seperately and try it,although if you do a fresh install it will download automatically with it.

The new Wargaming.net Game Center is here, and we encourage you to change out your old World of Warships launcher for a whole new experience! The Game Center lets you keep all your Wargaming games in one place, with spaces to read news, watch videos and find dynamite deals with ease! 

 

Download it here

 

With the WGC Launcher, you can: 

  • Replace your regular launcher
  • Get in the game faster with automatic background updates 
  • See current news, sales, useful links and more in the launcher before you play
  • Check and repair installed games as necessary
  • Access all your favorite Wargaming products from one convenient location

 

Apparently from Nikopower's posts on the NA forum it will eventually rolled out as a the only launcher option.

 

Although it looks like it has been having problems:

Its still somewhat in testing though,and NA seem to be taking feedback.

 

From the posts there a couple of problems that may affect ASIA players with accounts in other regions as well are that it seems to give you no choice where to install to which leads to the problem if you have seperate installs then you can't do that with this new launcher.

 

I am keeping an eye on it to see what happens,but be aware there could be problems in the future if they don't fix the above

Been using it for months to play on both ASIA and NA. You can select which region to install and which region to play (if you have installed clients for multiple regions). No issues so far.

I used a beta version of it. Had problems, but when I uninstalled it, the original game launcher was not added so I was forced to reinstall the game. Hope they fixed that

Thanks,there is some confusion on the NA forum over this.Haven't tried it myself though.

 

Do you have them installed on drives other than C: and did it pick them up ok?

New installs at least from the NA site come with the new launcher already in it.And also seems if they test the new launcher out not,it overwrites the old one so you can't go back unless you have back up files.
