I still have the Common Test Server from the 8.6 update. I know you can update it to the 8.7 testserver.
somehow it doesnt work for me...
Do I need to install a new Common Test launcher? ... or something else?
I do not want to download the whole test server again if I dont have too.
please help me. (+1 if you can)

Because we were desperately waiting for a map based on a gulag?

Amen.And the most mysterious thing it is extremely high price (6700 gold!)- better just buy su-122-44 (50 gold more expensive, but bought mine with 30 % discount) because it has almost everything the E-25 has - mobility, more health, higher dps, better pen, big alpha, identical price, both meet 9 tier, etc... This is just WG`s desperate attempt to "farm" money from fanatics and then they will lower the price and do it again with more sane people. I get the impression that WG will soon sell horse piss for gold alongside with nick change "option". Btw, German TD`s already have 2 premium vehicles - give at least one to French or American! It would make sense because the aim is to train vehicles  in current tech tree. Horrible boring patch - played one day and it was enough. Only arty worth looking is - premium arty (tier 3), tier 6, maybe tier 10, but it is a pain with 1.1. acc. In the end, I played many times in test server, but never had a chance to play glorious, on soviet concentration camp based map - Belagorsk. Maybe next time add Auschwitz - good way to continue this brain-dead train of thought. ...

My first impression was that the E-25 is very good and i think I'll look for it when the patch comes but yes, it's Price could be lower or it could be changed from Tier 7 to 6 without a nerf. And one question : Where is the 112? it's not in the list of new things in the second test.

Incorrect, my good sir.
If I recall correctly updating from 8.5 test to 8.6 test could be done through the WoT Launcher and several prior to that. However due to some unknown reasoning on WG's part this time the full 5GB has to be downloaded again.

Just keeps telling me incorrect email and password. Just trying a reinstall now, problem is that requires downloading all the 5gig worth of patch again ಠ_ಠ

So you have updated the Test Server before?
Could you update it from 8.6 to 8.7? it does not seem to work for us...
WG could be a bit more clear about this

Yep,  I have updated through the launcher previously.  As soon as they announce the new test server, always try the previous test launcher to see if it will collect the new update.
As I stated in my comment  "this time the full 5GB has to be downloaded again."
I agree with you, they should be more transparent with their test patch update process.
