Heard about it, and it turns out it IS there in Steam (Early Access). the question is, for which region? since i'm preety sure WG's not on that level where there's only "One Client To Rule Them All" yet (i suspect NA)

All regions. You get choice which server to login to

Is it you get to choose which server when you create an account,or you can choose one at any time once logged in?

Can't remember if it was mentioned,are the Steam launched users being mixed with the WG launched users in the MM,or are they seperate?

IIRC you just get the one chance when you create the account because after that it logs you in automatically.

 

However you can run the launcher directly from the steam folder to be shown the server selection screen again.

 

Note that Steam use their steam_api.dll for the auto login. This exists in 2 places in the folders depending on the situation. If login in through steam and you want to bypass auto login you have to move/rename the version in steamapps/common/[*some number]/. If you are launching from the exe in the bin folder you will need to move/rename the dll in that folder.

 

*where [some number] will be the greatest numbered folder indicating the most recent version

 

As far as I can figure there would be no difference in the MM queue. My guess for the account separation would be that steam would be creating game accounts based on an id rather than an email address whereas wg are email address based.

Does look like they are putting the Steam players with the normal launcher players,at least according to this:

While the game on Steam uses all the same servers as the standard release, your existing Wargaming account won’t carry over to Valve’s platform - at least not officially.
