A couple month ago I installed test server and I wear testing BC25t and all seemed right for that moment. Yesterday I wanted test type 5  tank and after several games, I started wondering what exactly other players test on a test server. It seems there are not many players who test new tanks more like random tanks. There are like 90% Russian players and like 10% EU players. For some reason like 95%, players use premium ammo. 
So I am thinking is it really test server or it's just a fun server where you can use anything. Maybe someone could explain to me how to test server works what information WG gest from test server and should I write reviews about my tests on a tank I just don`t get it.
Maye some advice how can you test tanks with high armor.

Most people on the test server have like T5 max, so they use the test server to play T10 and load full gold.

Yep, most players on the test server run a full gold loadout because they can. When I used to play it, I'd play the tier 10s I was thinking of grinding towards to help decide what lines I wanted to grind on the regular servers. I did enough of that back then to have enough lines to keep me going for a while. It helps that I have the attention span of a goldfish and jump between lines all the time.

 

I'm currently grinding Russian mediums, which I never played on the test server. Because reasons. Probably. :unsure:

only problem in what you guys are writing is that there is no gold on testserver. Gold is a ting of the past now since we can only buy it for credits on test and after the patch allso on live server

The test server is a bit silly - don't even think about trying to test lower tier vehicles or realistic setups. WG really need to think about how they implement access models to this environment.

You are not testing the tanks you are testing the sever.  It's an easy way for WG to get a few thousand people online to see how the server copes.  It also gets the client installed on a range of hardware although WG don't seem too bothered about that side.

 

Actually testing the tanks.  No, it's useless for that.

It's like with every game.....early access to find bugs or closed runs bit somehow many bugs or in WGs case most players eat crayons while playing and data that proves how broken some tanks are "are ok"....just a PR gag. I really thought it was for testing but as always i expected too much. Had been on too many test runs and bug hunts in another game to know better.

Do it on live,thats where it matters.

 

You can test how a tank shoots,drives etc...Armor and gameplay in general,dont think so.

 

Personally i downloaded test server client once.I was either trolling Ruskies typing "Merica numba 1,Putin sucks" and getting team killled over and over or driving deathstar derping teamates with names such XxxslayerxxX .

Still did more testing than the guys who test drived obj268V4 :trollface:.

Pretty sure some think it's the regular server ... seen some rather fun cap-outs and what not.

 

But never called it 'test' server myself ... it's like said above just a goldspam herpaderp tier x fest.  Think trying a tier 6 once queue took couple of minutes :/

What you really test on the test server is your patience with Russians, and how much gold you can spend on a single ammo loadout. Nothing else.
