I want to copy the game from my desktop to my laptop, 

 

What is the easiest way to do so without having to download the whole game?

Download the installer on your laptop. Run it, start the installation.

 

When the launcher starts downloading the game files, stop the download, and then copy over your WoWS directory from your other computer, overwriting all files.

Or you could do what i did :) if your running the same operating system. just take the whole game copy and paste on portable hard drive.

Probably safer to run the installer, just in case you miss out on a few registry entries.

 

Though it really shouldn't affect gameplay or how the program runs, the installer does add a few keys to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE.

Download installer then let it install. Close the WoWs Launcher, and copy the contents inside the Update folder from your desktop and transfer to your laptop's. Then run the launcher again and it will install everything.
