World of Tanks welcomes players to partake in the third public test of update 7.2.

Full news text

The World of Tanks development team gives all players the opportunity to partake in the third test of the 7.2 update, which will be released the near future. During this test a special World of Tanks update v. 7.2 will be available for playing on test servers only. The estimated end date of the second test is March 27, 2012.

Please note that the public test server will go through restart once in two days at 01:00 UTC, starting from March 23 (i.e. at 15:00 PDT, March 22), and will last for 25-45 minutes. In order to make your game experience more efficient we limited the number of gamers on the server. As a result you could be placed on the waiting list each time we reach 26.000 players in battle.

Attention! Please, install the test game client version 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 21:00 UTC, March 2, 2012, can login the test server. To participate in the test you need to do the following steps:

1. Download the test game client in a separate directory:
   Download full game client with 7.2 update here (2.62 GB)
   Download v.7.2 test game client torrent file here
2. Run the game. The game client launcher will be updated with test #3 update files, which score 24 Mb in total.

Please, keep in mind certain special features of the public test server:
  • Players' database was compiled similarly to the first test of 7.2 update, when the system selected an account randomly out of several, registered on several servers per a single email. We'd like to draw your attention to the fact that developers are aware of the login issue, caused by rarely used accounts being selected for the test, and will do their best to escape this case in future testing.
  • Payments are not accepted on the mass test server.
  • Credit and experience rates for public test server are multiplied by 10. All players are given 15,000 gold for testing purposes.
  • Progress won't be transferred to the main NA server.
  • No progress from previous tests will go to this test.
  • We draw your attention to the fact that the test server is subject to EULA and general rules of World of Tanks game server. The restrictions and punishments are the same as on the official game server of World of Tanks. The details of the v.7.2 update public test can be discussed in a special forum thread. The discussion of failures and bugs of test update 7.2 is carried out in special sub-forums only.

If a player's PC is a bit outdated (e.g. older than 8 years), the player might face graphics bugs and will need to download a special small update.

List of changes between mass test #2 and test #3 of the 7.2 update:

Same problem.

I had test #2 installed on my system with the graphics hotfix. I opened the launcher and let it update, and this is the error that comes up now:

http://dl.dropbox.co....2 #3.error.jpg

I'll contact support as well.



Players, who have installed graphics hotfix, have this problem. We are aware about that and can propose 2 solutions.

1)Reinstall the 7.2 Test # 1 client and then update it.
2)Install special microupdate, which is available for download via test client game launcher.

We apologise for any inconvenience.

No cigar for me, my inactive Russian account got copied over, again, for the third time in a row.

Please note that if a player has got accounts on several servers, having registered them onto the same email, then the database selected one of the accounts for test randomly. In this case a player might enter his/her account used on another server, instead of the one expected.

Given an equal probability to all 3 accounts, having the same account picked 3 times in a row has a 0.037 chance of happening.
Random my foot!

Just what he said. It's not so hard to explain what you changed with values instead of just "Changed the cost of research and cost in credits of M46 Patton top gun", for example.

Yea its not much of a fun tank to drive, I have tried the lowe on test servers and if anyone is not getting one of these for free then add the extra 500 gold and get a lowe it is far superior. This is from someone who was looking forward to the t-34 and although I never played the t-34 I have in my garage I have played the t-29 and t-32 and loved them. I tried playing the t-34 in many different styles and while I enjoyed the original (test1) the 2nd and now 3rd are not much fun.

because this is a free premium tank a lot people have it, and its WG own fault. Mentioned about moving that tank to premium since last october, if they went and done that in october they wouldnt have a problem with so many people having a free moneymaking tank:)
Now it seams that WG is willing to shoot both its knees with ak47, making the game more consumer cash (buying gold) and farming-focused instead of fun-focused like it was before.
No point in me giving examples of what i have in mind because all the people that are playing the game long enough know what a lot of them
p.s. sorry 4 any misstypes, or grammar english is not my native language
