I installed the PTS only 2 days ago.. for the first time. And I don't have any of my premium ships on it. I used the same email.
Am I not suppose to have my premiums(that I have on my original acc) or what?

No, the ship selection is always determined by WG. Your main account does not matter.

Ok, but why do other players telling me they have all of their premiums. And they are in same situation as me.. (they are not testers, or anything like that)

Well afaik they should sync your account at some intervals to the PTS but I have a PTS account for a few years now and it was never the case to see my ships in port. I always get the seed determined by WG.

A shame so very few people are doing test. Makes waiting a thing and then to play with bots is not the best

 

Also had Veneto as a test ship. Played a couple of battles with it with a 19 point captain. Ship is very sensitive and guns do not bring what you would expect. Secondaries hardly make damage. Ship needs an upgrade to be popular

Hi Captains, I elevated your problem to our specialist. I hope i can update you soon.

Yes, for the PT account to mirror your main one, the two servers need to synchronize among themselves. Therefore, you should receive all your ships on the PT account once the two servers synchronize again.

When PT server is closed, the logging in process should tell user that it's closed instead of just unable to connect or black screen.

Yeah, it seems there is an improvement also for me. We highlighted this in our feedback. (As you said, the screenshot you used is not exactly the best, though 😀.)

What did you think about the PT of Update 0.10.3 so far? Did you manage to play the Axis vs Allies mode?

Sadly not, this was the first time i was testing ships and how ports looked XD

ports look very nice, but kronstadt port feels somewhat not secure lol

something i found out is that you cannot buy phase per phase (stage+stage and so on) on ZF-1 or watever ship is in the shipyard, you can only complete missions or buy the two packs. right?

Ahah. I like the Kronstadt port. It feels immersive to me: but you are right that port doesn’t exactly give you a sense of tranquility.

 

You should try the Mode; it is interesting. The second round of PT will come soon. 😉

 

You could also buy the Dockyards stages step by step. You can try again in the second round.

Axis vs Allies mode is mostly full of bots so it was like coop...

 

However, still a fun mode even if the two sides are vastly imbalanced since axis get no radars

It is sad to see that the number of players in test are diminishing. Today only 268 players. That results in very long waiting times, which again leads to more and more people not wanting to do tests anymore, because it is impossible to get all requests from wows done.

Also it leads to more and more bots in the game, which makes games boring.

You HAVE to do something or you may not have any testers anymore.

Port of Kronstadt needs a traffic director........ joking.

Very much realistic in the sorroundings, we are directly immersed in a bombing raid.

The audio and video effects hit continuosly the spectator, remarking the realism.

What else?

My congrats on who has realized this work, because i know that behind there is a lot of work and passion.

Chapeau.

Ahaha true, the port is a bit overflowed with visual stimulus.

Thanks for your feedback Captain, I do think as well that our Art Department did a great job on this.  😊
