Tank Commanders!

 

Recently, we announced the upcoming launch of a separate test server called "Sandbox", where we would test new balance changes to World of Tanks with you, the players. We are pleased to announce that the Sandbox test server will soon be opened!

This server will allow us to quickly gather your opinions about upcoming changes, and you will get more opportunities to influence our decisions as to what should or should not be included in future updates.

 

What exactly is Sandbox?

Sandbox is a separate test server where developers work with players on the balance changes to World of Tanks.

Testing on Sandbox will soon commence, but we can’t reveal much at this time. What we can say is that you will certainly see entirely new roles for vehicles, including SPGs, in the Sandbox test server.

 

How do I get into Sandbox?

To get started, send an application by clicking on the button below. You will be sent to a special page with an application form. Complete the form to apply to participate in testing.

 

 

What are the entry criteria?

Not everyone will receive access to this test server. The criteria for choosing participants will depend on the purpose of the specific stage of testing at the time they are chosen, but the main objective will still be to invite active players to participate in testing and share their feedback so that the game can be improved.

 

How will I know that my application has been approved?

Players who have been granted access to the test server will be informed via the following sources:

  • An email to the mailbox linked to their account
  • Notification in the game client

 

Important: Access to the test server can be terminated or restricted at any time for non-compliance with the EULA, Terms Of Service, or other terms of Wargaming. Restrictions for actions committed when playing on the test server may also be applied to the main account of the offending player.

 

We're looking forward to receiving your applications. Let's make the game better together!

Alpha Testers re-visited.  Not enough Super-Testers to get the testing done properly.

I don't get how this properly works??

do they choose random players to try specific tanks and once they are done with the testing do they choose different players ?????? 

I'm honestly not 100% sure how this works

Do you download another small game client or do they just give you a small update and add it to your normal game and click on a different server before you log into your garage???

Question: Will Sandbox server be located in Russia

You silence those who speak the truth, and you wonder why everyone is talking rubbish

You reward those who win by cheating, and you wonder why you can't produce people who can win while playing fairly

You punish people who put in effort to play, and you wonder why all who remain are the unmotivated

What is the point of getting only active players to participate in the test?

Many excellent players who have much better insight in the game aren't even active anymore, and much of the people left active are just pubs and plebs.

And surely there needs to be a minimum skill level for this test. I cringe at the thought of having RNG conspiracy theorists suggesting changes to tanks.

I play artillery because I like to promote dynamic gameplay.

Apparently when I clicked the button to apply there was no form to fill up but it said "application sent".
I am still somewhat puzzled and worried that my application might not have been completed properly.
The worlds spinnin' round and I'm just sitting here blasting tanks to bits... Totally worth it!

hopefully we can test out the new tier X british medium chieftain! one step forward to modern tanks!

With the blood of an enemy shall the marks be made upon the missile. Then bless the missile and present unto the mounting. Say the prayer of firing and curse the target. Do this rapidly lest the wrath of the weapon be wasted. Point the eye of the weapon so that it may see the object of its wrath. When the weapon has uttered its curse and eaten the soul of its victim, then shall you take up the next missile...

~Firing rite

Very likely since they said it would just be like Common Test server.

I don't think they would pay to found a new server for it.

This should be interesting! Hopefully it makes playing some of the lacklustre tanks more interesting and less of a grind. Hopefully they don't break the ELC that little thing is such a blast.

Because the active players are people that are still interested in playing the game, the people that leave could still join up but I doubt it would be the changes that they left over.
