Usually, in other MMOs, you can freely move the game client between drives and folders without having to reinstall it. Just copy & paste -> start from new location -> done. But not in Wildstar, it seems.
Last week, i decided to move Wildstar from my HDD to the system drive on my SSD for a better game performance. Everything worked fine and the client was starting from its new location without problems and the performance increase was amazing.
But when i downloaded the new patch yesterday, i wondered myself why the launcher was accessing my HDD the whole time.
After checking out the folders, i had to find out that the launcher actually wasn't updating the client on my SSD. Instead, it was updating the client on it's old location on my HDD (Yes, i made sure i was starting the launcher from it's new location. I double-checked that).
In the next step, i renamed the old game folder on my HDD and started the launcher from my SSD again and... the launcher started to redownload and reinstall the whole game client in its old location again.
So, i went to the "Programs & Features" tab in windows, uninstalled Wildstar and tried to reinstall the client from my SSD.
However, i couldn't proceed with the installation because i had "insufficient disk space" and the button was greyed out (Even though, the client data files were already in place. But the launcher obviously doesn't care about this at this point).
In the end, i had to delete the client from my SSD to make room for the installation routine and then copy the client back to the SSD again.
All this hassle just because the launcher doesn't auto-update its own location like it's common in other MMOs.
This is TOTALLY inconvenient and i hope this will be adressed in the future.
