I have played on the public test server twice today and could only play 1 game each time due to realy bad lag, my ping would shoot up to over 200 then back to 33, when I go back to normal server my ping stays the same all the time.

Downloaded the PTS. Took me a lot! 

After this I push the button register and find out… IT'S ONLY IN RUSSIAN!!

Then you wonder why so few people play on PTS??? 

Last update: after I registered I found out that I have to download another 6 GB update and ufter this another 2 GB.

So the Whole process is taking me 4 hours. …. I guess because the download from the russian server is going at a very low speed. 

OMG it's a nightmare. Wish It will be Worth the pain.

Did everybody get a 19-point captain on the Queen Elizabeth, and the others all being 15-point captains? Or was that just me?

The only issue I had was the automated voice would report all aircraft losses for everyone on the team, so I would hear "fighter destroyed" randomly throughout the battle which is mildly annoying.

Do you have replay from those battles? Atleast I hope, it would be heard on the replay...

Actually for PT it is kinda tricky, as replay file it runable just in particular PT, so when submitting on Monday, it wouldn't work when somebody would take a look on that. And btw don't create support tickets of PT.

Can you record this somehow, maybe?

Since the 0.8.5 PT round 1 each version of the WoW crashes on me: the live 0.8.5, the 0.8.5.1 and now the PT 0.8.6

Any suggestions to solve the issue?

It is disappointing that once again there is no sign of the simplest GUI improvements that basically suggest themselves, like a demount-all-signals button, flag profiles or even ship profiles, nor any improvements of the contacts / friends management and social networking features.

 

Especially considering that WG is obviously worried about player retention.

 

People are much less prone to abandon a game where they have friends. It's as easy as that. Make it easier to find and maintain social contacts and you will straight up lose fewer players.

Handing out a Gearing for 500 doubloons in a "Random Bundle" is so broken and mad I was tempted to put this into the BUGS thread. 

Trust me, don't worry, you don't get the Gearing for 500 doubloons.:cap_like:

  1. In the live server the ship will not be the "Gearing"! I don't want to spoil the surprise, but I can safely tell you that it's not the Gearing or a tier ship 10.
  2. In the live server, the rewards and ease with which they are obtained are often different than on the test server.
  3. Also on the Test server, even if it is not clearly explained, it takes several attempts at 500 doubloons each, before being able to get the "prize" ship.

Ps: Indeed, personally, considering when you spend, between Republic Tokens and total doubloons, believing that this ship is a prize seems to me exaggerated... in my opinion, it's just a different way to buy a ship).:cap_money:

 

 

 

It's like making a race, and then whoever wins will be given a medal... but only if he pays the medal! :Smile_trollface:

I have the feelling that I didn't get my rewards on my main account after finishing the combat missions required, also couldn't see any french brand destroyer in game.

Probably they are work in progress?

Also couldn't play and ranked or clan battle, so not so many things to report .

For ranked it was showing me directly Rank 1 but I think that this is from the previous update on PTS and not for this one. But somehow I keep on rank 1.

Anyway, that's all for now, I ll keep up playing more random battles to see what else I can find.

You only get those when the patch goes live, also you have to actively claim them.

It's in the announcement.

SO I cannot play ranked battles, because somehow it kept my score (rank 1) from previous patch? I guess...

The Marseilles port is really drab, a few balloons, badly needs sparkling up.

Sounds logical. I still have all my ships and rewards from the previous patch.

Yeah I also couldn't proceed beyond Rank 3, then again considering the reward & progress is shared between all rounds, and the restrictions on tier, ship type, and the requirement of 6v6 (probably because that's what they want to test), it's imperative we try & finish this the earliest we can. Even without considering any rewards, the remaining factors will still play against the favor of Ranked.

 

Back to OP, round #2 feedback (was not in round #1):

  • Sometimes when turning manually (via A and D), turn sound effects similar to automatic turns (Q and E) are issued.
  • Autopilot is really clumsy in turns right now. It sometimes forgets turning outright. At other times, it turns without accounting for the fact that it's switching between forward & backward movement.
  • From the carrier's perspective, was the sound of a plane's destruction changed? In the few matches I've played, I rarely recall hearing the usual sound, and I'm yet to recognize if there was either a replacement for it, a change of volume, or just total omission.
  • In one instance, it seemed as if the only ship torpedo of my salvo that managed to hit my enemy, somehow dealt a duplicate instance of damage to him about 0.5 seconds after initial impact & damage. That 2nd instance resulted in the target's death, and sadly I'm not confident of my observation of ribbons during the incident, and I forgot to review post-match results to cross-check them against present clues.

Hope this helps. Good luck.
