How to install the Common Test client

The Common Test is a test of the upcoming official version of the game before the version is released and becomes available for players. To participate in the Common Test, a special test client is required. You can find information about future Common Tests by keeping an eye on the portal for news and announcements. 

The test server is different from a regular server. No achievements, XP, or credits received on the special test client will be carried over to your main server. However, the same rules are applied on the test server as on the main gaming server. Therefore, there are penalties for violating these rules in accordance with the License Agreement.

You can launch the Common Test only via Wargaming.net Game Center. To participate in the Common Test follow these steps:

  1. Download and run the installer. Wargaming.net Game Center will be opened on your PC.
  2. Choose a save location different from your regular World of Tanks game files.
  3. Click INSTALL. The Wargaming.net Game Center will download all the necessary data.
  4. Select the newly installed test client from the menu Game instance in the upper-left corner of the Wargaming.net Game Center.
  5. Launch the game and test all new features! 

Only players who registered in World of Tanks before the cut-off date can participate in the test. The cut-off date is indicated in the news for each Common Test.   

How to select a WoT server before entering the Garage

By default, the Wargaming.net Game Center connects you to a game server with optimal ping and capacity. You can control this procedure by entering Settings and activating the server choice option:

How Game Center utilizes PC resources

By default, the Wargaming.net Game Center runs in the background and minimized in your system tray.
During installation, updates, or imports, WGC utilizes minimum PC resources, so you can use your computer to its full capacity while Game Center runs in the background.

If you want to speed up the installation process, you can enable the Use all computer resources during installation option (Game Center Settings > Updates). This will allow Game Center to use up resources that may be in use by other processes, which may lead to a decrease in their performance. But the games will be installed and updated faster.

Alternatively, you can select an option to save resources while downloading and installing game updates. This way, Game Center will perform updates slower, but free up your internet connection and system resources for your convenience.

When a game is launched from Game Center, the app stops checking for updates and notifications. The CPU and network load are negligible (~0%).

How Game Center affects internet traffic consumption

There is no significant effect on your network when Game Center runs in the background. It periodically checks for updates and notifications by sending simple HTTP requests with minuscule traffic consumption.

News, tutorials, and special deals are uploaded only when you activate the app and only for the specific game launcher you are currently viewing. The network load slightly increases, but the overall traffic consumption remains minimal.
