Maybe I’m overlooking something, but launch groups don’t appear to include profiles. By that I mean: the abillity to have Character A with profile A in one group, and Character A with profile B in another. Switching profiles has become harder now, and I switch profiles quite often depending on which screen I want a character to run on. As it is now, groups have no added value for me.
Also, when my computer comes out of hibernation with the launcher still running, any launch I attempt then crashes. I have to restart the launcher every time.
Okay, first, on a mac with Wine. Yesterday I could only log in one of two accounts. Seems the first one locked down the ability to add the second. I could still log in to the website, etc., so it wasn’t a server issue. Saw the Web cache work around, that worked.
Today, same problem. One account logs in fine, but I am again asked to “Add Account” even though they were both in at the end of yesterday. Add the first account, the second one won’t be accepted.
Also, I get the purpose of the Launch Groups. Made two, they wouldn’t show up on the Launcher Screen. I read all of these great comments about having a list of accounts that you just click on, no such luck here. Back to dumping the two cache files and resubmitting new account log ins with requisite email number keys, etc. Though currently, it is behaving more like the previous launcher which would never remember an account no matter how many times I had logged in and played…
I see a reference to World of Tanks herein. I must say, they have a similar problem, every update, some little thing breaks. Next step, delete the game and redownload, “the 2x4 approach” as I call it.
WOW CCP, For the first time in 19 years I couldn’t figure how to login to my account.@CCP_Avalon, I am really curious If there is a reason as to why the UI design team varied so far from ISO interface standards and changed the universal triangular ‘play’ button to an ‘add’ function button.

IMO Its kinda like replacing the “?” for help with Stop sign, unusually confusing and unneeded
Mabey it just me. but I would expect hitting the ‘Play’ icon would, well, start or “play” the game.
If this was my first intro to the game, I would have gave up right away and moved on to something else. Unfortunately for me and lucky for you , you have my money already and Im just to lazy to cancel the regular payment
It is put the news and advertise right in your face. It is obvious what the point was. The fact they took away the auto launch feature when you open it is the dead give away. not you have the add right in the middle of the screen when you open it and have to look at the window to find the launch button that is off the bottom so your eyes cross over the advertisement of PLEX SALE or NEW SKINS FOR SALE. Subs isn’t enough dough for these guys. They want any customer surplus you got.
Suggestion: when launching a group of accounts that already has one or more accounts running, do not show an error for those that are already running, but just show a green mark “client already active”
Since when is it possible to launch 2 instances of the launcher? I managed to do that just now, one with all accounts logged in, the other without any accounts. I started to enter all my account details again into the second instance and it did not tell me that I am already logged in in a launcher. That’s flawed.
If you already have to emulate the discord like menu, at least please make it possible to close that menu with ESC like in discord.
