New PC just windows 10 installed. Trying to install WOW. 100mps internet, over five and a half hours to download less than 4Gig of the 32+gig installation files. Anybody explain why when original install took about one and a half hours to D/L and install. At this rate will take another 40+hours. (speed is fine on speedtest.net over 102mps in fact)

You could send customer service a ticket (you might even get a sensible response - weirder stuff has happened).

 

I'm not a tech, so can't give you an informed response, but WOT is currently in the process of an update; if the two functions share resources, that might explain why WOWS is slow to download?

Ready to give up with this game now, thing stopped downloading at 23% and would not restart the process. had to reboot the new PC checked all firewall settings ok etc tried to download again and low and behold it started from scratch again. nearly 11 hours now in total and now only 4%. at my age may not live long enough to download and play this on my new PC. So p****d of with this situation. Surely should be able to download this as a separate zip file or torrent even to alleviate this sort of problem.

It's possible to copy the folder from your old PC, and then run the launcher to get the current update.
Edit: Today there's an update to 0.9.7, so the servers are busy, but it's 3.3 gigs instead of the full install.

I can't give a full answer and I'm not a tech, but I have noticed - for me at least - the WG launcher is incredibly slow at downloading and installing (even with "Use all computer resources" turned on)

Steam downloaded it a bit faster - although I'm assuming you made an account from the WG website so you couldn't use the same account on steam.

Microsoft Store downloaded it a LOT faster - again, you can't use an existing account on there.

 

Maybe it's because servers are busy or something but I've noticed WG launcher is slow for me.

Should not be taking that long. I'm download the game again now to install and have around 14mps download rate and it's 92% done so far after 1 hour and 10 minutes downloading.

why am I having issues installing the wargaming stuff for the WOW system.  I did play tanks did not like it and uninstalled the software.  1 year later i see the warships and would like to try it out.  problem is, the wargaming is refusing to install. something about permissions.

You just have a very bad connection.

Hello mate. Seems like your Antivirus block it. Disable antivirus or allow download :)
