Tank Commanders,

Wargaming invites all Tank Commanders to join us in this Public Test for Update 8.1 so that we can gather more informative data and ensure the game’s quality for the future. Lend us a hand in our testing efforts and be the first to experience fresh new content ahead of others!

The Public Test 8. 1 is now live.

To participate in the test you need to do the following steps:

  1.  Copy the game client to a separate folder
  2.  Install a small launcher update found here (8,7 МB).
  3.  Update the game via launcher. 4 Gb approximately

If you have already installed the Public Test game client the launcher will update it to the Public Test 8.1 version 2 automatically (~100Mb)

Please, install the test game launcher in a different folder, other than the current game client version! Also switch off the game client before installing the update. Only players who have registered prior to 0:00 UTC 02.09.2012 can participate in the test

Please note that the replay system is currently being enhanced. To prevent any client crashes or other malfunctions within the Public Test #1, it is highly recommended that players disable battle recording in their 8.1 Public Test #1 client. 

2. Scheduled server restarts as of follows:

  • W.o.T. Common Test1 cluster - 09:00hrs (GMT+8) on each UNEVEN date of the month. Average duration will be around 25 minutes.
