UPDATE: Public Test of Version 7.5

The first phase of the public test will be closing at 14:00 CEST (12:00 GMT) on Wednsday 18th of July. Thank you for your participation.

 

Commanders!

The World of Tanks development team is now giving you the opportunity to participate in the 7.5 mass test. The new update will be released in the near future. At this time, we would like to ask for your feedback during the testing process.

For now, the special World of Tanks 7.5 update will only be available on our test servers. Players will be able to download the test version as soon as the installation maintenance is over today on Thursday, July 12th at 14:00 CEST (12:00 GMT). Please note that only those players who registered prior to June 28th 2012 before 02:00 CEST (00:00pm GMT) are eligible to login to the test server.

In order to make your game experience more efficient we need to limit the number of players on each cluster. As a result you could be placed on the waiting list each time we reach 13.000 players on your periphery.

Please note that the cluster you will choose will be subject to a restart schedule as follows:

  • Each even day from 08:00am (06:00 GMT) and lasts for about 25 min 

To participate in the test you need to follow the steps below:

1.  Make a copy of your game client and save it in a SEPARATE and SAFE location from your 'normal' game directory.

2.  Download the Version 7.5 patch installation file (666kB).

3.  Run the patch on the new copy of your game client.  DO NOT run it on your 'normal' game client!

4.  Run the new copy of the game.  The launcher will download the additional data (352 MB).

IMPORTANT!  Only run the patch on a copy of your game client!  Running it on your normal play client will prevent you from playing the game normally!
Only players who registered prior to June 28th 2012 can access the public test server.

Please note, the public test server has some special features:

  • Payments are not accepted on the public test server.
  • Credit and experience rates for public test server are multiplied by 10. All players are given 15,000 Gold for testing purposes.
  • Progress will not be transferred to the main server.

Important:  We would like to draw your attention to the fact that the test server is subject to the same EULA and general rules of the World of Tanks game server. This means that the restrictions and punishments are the same as on the official game server of World of Tanks. The details of the v.7.5 public test can be discussed in a special forum but if you want to report any bugs, please make sure they go to this forum so that they can be fixed.
