Commanders, welcome to the Public Test of Update 0.9.8!

A new Campaign and collection, Asymmetric Battles, a new Dockyard, and other improvements. Take a look through the Developer Bulletin, and welcome to the test!

 

Round 2 Schedule

Starts: Thursday 20th August 18:30 CEST (UTC+2)

Ends: Tuesday 25th August 07:30 CEST (UTC+2)

 

Special Features of the Test

During the Public Test of 0.9.8, everyone will be able to test a new temporary battle type—Asymmetric Battles.

  • Select the Asymmetric Battle type.
  • Two teams will face off against each other in these battles, with differing numbers of ships and different ship tiers: 4–6 Tier VII–VIII ships, against 8–12 Tier V–VI ships.
  • To take part in Asymmetric Battles playing Tier VII–VIII ships you'll need Battle Tokens.

For the purpose of testing, the conditions of the "Five Epochs of the Navy" Campaign have been made easier. We've changed the reward for completing the 20th shipbuilding phase at the Dockyard. Anchorage won't be available on the Public Test server.

 

Summer Season #3

Complete any six missions of the "Summer Season #3" Directive.

Reward on the live server: 2x Five Epochs of the Navy containers

The missions can be completed only once, playing Tier VIII–X ships in Random and Ranked Battles.


Other Changes

The visual display of fog in the game has been enhanced by adopting an updated spacial distribution system and adding a scattered sunlight effect. Apart from improving the visual component, this change will also provide a slight improvement in the game client's performance.

"Naval Legends" audio recordings have been added to the pool of in-battle soundtrack options.

Hello. I had a asymetric battle 4x T8 vs. the others. One Point i have to say, that it´s really bad to have 2 NPCs in your Team. So this is a lost round. Not cool

not really intersting, this asymetric game. Maybe 4 tier 10 against 6 Tier max 7?

Not really, that's going to be a curb stomp by the Tier 10s every time. Besides, it's Tier 5/6 v Tier 7/8. 

Aside from my comment regarding the Asymmetric Mode in that section, my issue with the current PT is that once again we have a shortage of players; even on Saturday/Sunday, there aren't enough players available to complete all the objectives - Asymmetric Mode was full through both days until late (BST/CET), but Randoms and Ranked were practically empty. Hopefully this will improve on Round Two - and it's fortunate that WG are continuing to host multi-round Tests.

Hi there,

 

First I appreciate the work you guys invest to invent a new mode. To me the asymetric battles were not appealing. It feels like that in the current state it is another gamemode with high roffflestomp-potential. I had not that many games, but had 90 % lowtier games were we insulted the T8 one by one. The remaining 10 % it was vice versa. Not one close match.

I did only 2 T8 battles, with the second in a cossack with DOUBLE CV on the low tier-team. If you want that on the live server I will NEVER take part in this mode. That multiple CV-crapp is anoying enough in randoms, but in this mode it is ridicoulus because of map-size and the low amount of ships to attack for the CV.

 

I left the mode after this and are not planning to get back to it in this season.

 

What did influence the battles too was that the consumables were not responding until hitting the key 5 to 6 times. Espacially in a DD it is very annoying.

 

So for me it will have to have a lot of balancing and improving MM to work.

 

Greetings

On the whole: positive on the new 5 eras mission and the asymmetrical battle. I'm less positive about the fact that the grindy Summer directives are only for ranked and random battles (except for CV's). I've wanted to complete these (as they were really fun in the Spring update), but the number of players is just too low (i.e. waiting times 5+ minutes for a single battle, random battles with only three or four contestants each side) made me postpone doing these each time I tried. So please either tone them down or allow co-op play as well.

Experienced the same issue with damage control. I hit the key several times before (around 5 seconds) I could use it.

Hi,

Congratulations on awesome 5 years, thanks for all the support and hard work u have done to make this a superb game.

 

So i have had the chance to play on public test server for a whole day two days ago, had a lot of fun and enjoyed it a lot, wrote down some bits and pieces i encountered in the game, but now i cannot login on the pbt now for two days, it keeps saying could not connect, i have reinstalled the test game this evening, but still the same problem, the game starts, loading screen all fine but then when on authorization screen, i keep getting the message cannot connect, try again later, my internet is working fine as i have internet radio and i don't have issues there, my internet had download speed 1gbyt yes in Belgium that is possible, as said i have had the possibillity to play the pbt a whole day, like two days ago, but now not anymore.

New Campaign looks great. Asymmetric Battle type interesting concept , I would foresee a lot of complaints about matchmaking.

For example, in one battle the 4 T8 ships were all BBs against a least 3 DDs plus another 5 ships all T6. T6 won easily !!!

PTS is only available during certain times. Part one of 0.9.8 ended on Tuesday morning.

 

I assume part two starts tonight and runs until Monday / Tuesday next week. There should be news posting on the website soon.

To už si ze mě dělaj prdel !!!!!!!!!!! 5 bitev s VIII letadlovou lodí proti 5x X tier a IX tier, letadla se většinou nedokáží ani přiblížit natož podniknout utok, pokud vyhlídnu osamocenou tak max. 1 utok a všechny letadla jsou v hajzlu, to mě sralo u WoT který jsem kvůli tomu přestal hrát, tak se proberte kreténi !!!!!!

Usually we have two rounds of Public Test.

Please pay attention to articles, like this one: https://worldofwarships.eu/en/news/public-test/public-test-098/

 

There you can see, that second round of 0.9.8 PT will start today in the evening and will finish on Tuesday, early morning.

Update takes forever. I do not have issues with updating main game, this update speed is OK. For test server, it is so ridiculous that (at least on my internet speed) it is faster to download whole new instance than make just update. If you want ppl test the updates, do make updates available!
