First Public Test for World of Warplanes

The first public test of World of Warplanes is now available.

 What has been a longstanding practice in the development of World of Tanks now comes to World of Warplanes – the public test server! If you’re looking to try out all the new features of the upcoming version before its official release, then the public test server is the place for you to be.

 Not only is this a great opportunity to get a glimpse of the future of the game, but you will also be able to actively influence the final look of the update by providing valuable feedback to our developers. Through your help, they will be able to test the newly created features under life-like conditions and smooth out whatever rough edges still remain, based on the newest findings of the public test participants.

 

Main Features of the Test Version

  • Server-wide wipe to recreate release conditions
  • Transition to gold as the premium currency
  • XP accrual rate increased for all planes
  • Adjustments to optimum altitude, speed, durability and manoeuvrability of a number of select aircraft
  • Addition of new interface elements, gift camouflages and emblems
  • Improved hangar, battle-queue and in-battle performance
  • Minor bug fixes and sound improvements

 

How the Public Test Works

When it is time to run a public test, the developers will release a test version of the client.  This can be downloaded by following the instructions below.  Make sure that you follow all of the instructions carefully, so that you don’t accidentally cause problems in your normal play account.

 The test account is completely separate to your normal account. It will have a set of special rules for crediting experience, credits and gold. This will allow you to unlock all the contents of the game quicker, in order for you to be able to fully test the new features.

 For testing purposes, your public test accounts will be completely wiped at first. Your entire research progress, along with credits and gold will be set to 0 when you first enter the test server.  All the planes*, modules, equipment, ammunition and consumables that you may have unlocked on the regular World of Warplanes Open Beta server will be wiped as well.

Instead, each tester will begin with five Tier I starting planes (one from each nation). All the experience you’ve earned before October 22nd will be saved and evenly distributed between the pilots of those starting planes. Going forward, every new plane that you purchase will come with a 100% trained crew. For testing purposes, all players also get the planes from our pre-order packages, as well as planes that have only been available through bonus codes, with additional gold consumables (two ammunition belts of each type).

*Any eventual bonus planes such as the I-15bis DM or F2A-1 will also be available (if you had them before)If players sold their I-15bis DM within 3 days after it was initially gifted, the plane will still be there on the Public Test account.

 

All tokens will be replaced by gold and converted into premium account time. For your achievements in the game, you will be rewarded with gold. This gold is granted only for the duration of the test and does not carry over to your regular Wargaming account.

You will receive:
  • 1,000 gold for the first victory of the day
  • 5,000 gold for 10th victory of the day
