The patch notes suggest that we will be forced to have Wargaming game centre open when we play World of Warships.

 

I'm a Steam user, do I really have to have Wargaming game centre open AND steam open?

 

I'd also like to know why this change is being forced onto us.

As far as I heard on the NA-server, the WGC is not required if you are playing with steam.

However, starting the game by starting the game - .exe or with the ModStation will not work anymore.

The GameCancer was never neccessary. The tiny updater was all that was needed. It's just a sad attempt from WG to try to show people that they have 3½ playable* games. And also to hog resources unneccessarily, because that is what such launchers like these are mainly for.

 

*This is debatable, too.

I assume you can close the thing after WOWS (or WOT) has spun up though?

I think this means that you only can launch the game with game center started but you can close it after.

Yes, that works. Just tried it with the NA-client.

Hi Captain,

Steam users are not affected by the change, therefore they don't need to launch the game trough WGC.

It would be good if WGC could send back to WG what other games you play. Recommendation then would be: turn WGC permanently on (start with Windows) and play War Thunder exclusively.
