Its nice to have the chance to test new things added into the game, but the game play is not a true representation of the live servers.

The amount of gold/ credits/ exp we get is good but it allows the players on the test server to load up with a full tank of premium rounds.

This does not give a true view of game-play, a full tank of premium rounds is something that rarely happens on the live servers.

 

So as it stands the test servers do not show the full aspect of normal game play.

Are you sure?  I thought it was normal, just going by the premium ammo whine on here.

Zing! :D

 

I mean that's just normal right? If you a great amount of funds and can do whatever you want you do that. 

Now imagine if the test server wouldn't allow gold ammo. THAT would be a test. :D

Well, probably just everyone driving the Type5. o.o

They did that on the sandbox and it was even less representative of the live server.  I just drove my Maus straight down the middle of Steppes bouncing everything.

If they removed gold ammo... it would still not reflect how the tank would be. As in the end when there is a new line. Most play only that tank, as that's what they want to test. And with tier X games being 90% Polish HT's here last. It still won't feel the same when you suddenly have a bigger variable of guns aiming at you on live. Gold or not. 

 

CT will never be able to give a real impression of how anything feels anyway regardless. As we did see with all the CT OP tank whine. Then on live when he faces less gold ammo, and more different guns. It's suddenly trash.

*voted for deleting of the topic, as it doesn't belong here. Also WG won't read this, so this topic has no use.

It is a true representation of the game.  As only 5% of all ammo fired is premium and only 5% of the player base uses the test server.

That's why you go to the training rooms section and join one of those rooms and either play with the other players for fun or explore the map, test the tank etc. 

 

Nobody actually goes on the test server and into random battles lmao

T'was ever thus. Test server is ok if you're willing to make allowances for the gold spam but otherwise it's a waste of time. Warships test server gives various rewards on the live server, Tanks test server is for 12-year olds who've only reached tier 5 to play tier 10 tanks with full premium load-outs.

that's where you are mistaken - drive a well-armored tank on tier 10 and it's a rain of gold all around.

But you can make it how you want though, I wanted to test T10 heavies to choose a line to go down. I had them all just 100% crew and 0% the first skill, as it would be in normal game, and though others shoot prem ammo most of the time, that does not matter in evaluating the performance and feel of the tank you are testing.

The Testserver is mainly for WG to see if there are any major bugs left in the patch.

Being able to test new tanks is just there to get some decent player numbers on it.
