Discovered this recently, thought I'd share it. Remember back when you could download the entire WoT client without needing the fiddle about with the WoT launcher or torrents? Well, turns out you can still do this and take advantage the the download power of software like FreeDownloadManager. This is really easy and works for ALL the regions :-) Steps: Open your web browser (Chrome/Firefox or GTFO) Browse to http://update.worldoftanks.com/rss/ (If you want the EU client, go to http://update.worldoftanks.eu/rss/ instead, RU is at http://update.worldoftanks.ru/rss/ while SEA can be found at http://update.worldoftanks.asia/rss/) You are now looking at the World of Tanks Update RSS file. This file us used by the Wot Launcher to determine if there are any patch files available to download. The file contains <item> entries each of which details a patch file .torrent link <item> <title>wot_95.5188_94.5074_client.patch</title> <link> http://dl2.wargaming.net/wot/us/patches/9.5_Dimh8huKXk/wot_95.5188_94.5074_client.patch.torrent </link> <pubDate>Mon, 22 Dec 2014 6:17:27</pubDate> </item> At this point you've probably already guessed it... http://dl2.wargaming.net/wot/us/patches/9.5_Dimh8huKXk/wot_95.5188_94.5074_client.patch.torrent is the .torrent file for a given .patch file... But http://dl2.wargaming.net/wot/us/patches/9.5_Dimh8huKXk/wot_95.5188_94.5074_client.patch is the .patch file itself! You can use the above information to download the .patch files you need directly using a proper download manager. No need for torrents, no need for the WoT Launcher. Some of you may be unsure which .patch files to download. Again, this is actually pretty easy. Files are of the form wot_TARGET_VERSION_SOURCE_VERSION.patch If you look at the items currently up on the NA update service you'll note the following items: http://dl2.wargaming.net/wot/us/patches/9.5_Dimh8huKXk/wot_95.5188_94.5074_client.patch.torrent If you are on 0.9.4 then the .patch version of the above file is the ONLY file you need to download. It is the patch file that takes 0.9.4 to 0.9.5 http://dl2.wargaming.net/wot/us/patches/9.5_Dimh8huKXk/wot_95.5188_95.5187_client.patch.torrent http://dl2.wargaming.net/wot/us/patches/9.5_Dimh8huKXk/wot_95.5187_95.5186_client.patch.torrent http://dl2.wargaming.net/wot/us/patches/9.5_Dimh8huKXk/wot_95.5186_client.patch.torrent The .patch versions of the above 3 files are the ones you need to download to take a fresh install the WoT laucher to 0.9.5. The above patterns hold true on the current update RSS files for EU, RU and SEA as well. Generally the very first item lists the patch torrent file that takes the previous version to the current version, while the next items list the patch torrent files required to take a fresh install to the current version. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
