[Steam Release] Frequently Asked Questions
You are welcome to join our Discussions section in the Community Hub. As we are going to have a multicultural community, you may use any language you prefer (as long as the content doesn’t violate Steam Rules and Guidelines) and leave your questions or feedback there. Just remember that the fastest way for us to react to your concerns is to answer to threads written in English.

Q: Is it the same game as original?
A: Yes, totally. Steam users will have the exact same game, but will be able to launch it from their Steam client. Overall game development will stay its course.

Q: Which servers do the Steam users play on?
A: We are using the same servers for all game versions, and you will be prompted upon initial login to bind your Steam account to one of them. The binding action is singular and you won't be able to move your account to a different region, so choose well.

I have chosen the wrong server, how can I undo that?
If you are okay with losing all progress, please submit a report to our Customer service http://wargaming.net/support/.

Q: What is the game login procedure for Steam users?
A: Players will simply need to launch the game, after which they will be taken directly to the "port" interface. All the authorization/authentification is done on Steam level.

Q Can I use my Wargaming.net account?
A: Unfortunately, not. World of Warships wasn’t initially designed as a cross-platform project. That means that if you've played the game already you would want to keep using the original client. If you log in using Steam, you automatically create a new game account, which binds to your Steam account. Important note: all updates to the game installed using Steam client will also be downloaded and installed through Steam. Same is true for the original client: you can not update a Game Center or launcher installation through Steam and vice versa.

Q: Will we have Steam collectibles/achievements for the game?
A: We do plan to implement collectibles, as well as achievements, but not with the initial release. Please follow our future patch notes (smile)

Q: Which anti-cheat system are you planning to use?
A: We are happy with our own anti-cheat system and we plan to keep it for the foreseeable future.

Q: Will I be able to choose a different alias from the one I already have on Steam?
A: Yes, you'll be able to choose a new nickname upon initial login or use your current one if it complies with our naming policy and isn't already taken.

Q: Can I use my Steam wallet to buy items in the game?
A: Yes that is the main payment method for our Steam release.

Q: Are there be refunds through Steam?
A: No. We follow the existing Wargaming.net policy concerning refunds. You can find additional details in our billing support section.

Q: Will the premium shop prices change?
A: No, they will stay exactly the same for each region independent of which platform you play on.

Q: How do I invite a Steam friend and get bonus?

Q: How can I reach the support if I don't have WG account?

change this policy, we demand as was done in WoT the implement of wargaming.net

you can just emport the game in to steam and play it you just have to get your update from the wargaming.net the only reasion you cant use your account in the steam is because steam is trying to skip the login and take you strate to port apon you launching the game leave the loging in the game you will be able to log in to your old account then take you to port like the old client

Can you explain the reason of why you so keen to transfer your 5k battles to Steam? Personally i playing WoWs almost 5 month with 1.200 k battles and there is no objection from my side. Steam is Steam continue to buy games here, WoWS is WoWS, Hearthstone is Hearthstone , i do play Blizzard games as well and all is ok :) Could you describe your negative vision , where it is come from?
