UPDATE 17/10

During our last checks of the CV beta build, we found a couple of critical bugs. They are quite annoying, and we don’t want them to affect your hands-on experience with the new gameplay.

 

We’ve already smashed one of the bugs, and the other is in process, but we still need to double check everything again and deliver the fixes to your test clients properly.

 

This means that the beginning of CV test will be delayed - worst case scenario until tomorrow.

 

We will update you here as soon as we have more information. Sorry for any inconvenience, and rest assured, we will launch the test as soon as we can!

I had to relaunch the game center in order to get the "region dropbox" to appear so i could select the TST server. Downloading now.

I'm just downloading now, but they did say there would be another patch around 12pm today and then it would be all systems go.

As others have said just have a little patience and all will be well (hopefully)

Everyone should calm down, they wrote: 12:00 UTC!!! That means here in CET that's UTC+1we have 12:40 so in UTC it's just 11:40.
Or if it's still summer time zone (I can't remember), then it's CEST which is UTC+2 so in UTC it'S 10:40.

No, it’s 10:48 UTC now. Really it’s so hard to understand quite simply text?

Problems so far:

  • The installation required the Game Center. I almost stopped here as I have not desire to install the Game Center.
  • The installation page for the Game Center says "Download Game". I almost stopped here as I have no desire to do another full download. (Little did I realize that I would be doing another full download of 35 GB anyway.) The download page should indicate that the download is of just the Game Center and that already installed games will not be downloaded (problem unrelated to this test). Always inform your users of what will be installed.
  • After installing Game Center it found some of the WG games but not others. The other games (WoT Sandbox and WoT Common Test) could not be added. You just get a message of "No supported game found the selected folder."
  • The Game Center I have does not match the Game Center in the instructions. It took me some time to find the "Install additional game instance" menu item.
  • Managing the update queue is not intuitive. I had to delete (not pause) two updates to get the TST update to run. There should be a way to reorder the updates.
  • Why is another installation required? Is this just to prevent people who have Public Test accounts but who have not signed up for the CV test from running the test? It would have been easier for your customers if you just modified the login to allow only login by people who signed up for the CV test.
  • There is no indication that clicking on an item in the update queue will transition to the selected game (e.g. from the update of the TST installation to the World of Warships tab).

Sorry, there seem to be some improvements to make with the process. Not sure why the WoT clients are not detected, all warships instances definitely run through it.

 

We needed to deploy this on a separate server or we would have pushed the update to all players running public test even if they don't have access to the test.
