Why are you slacking off on the job again? I found out about the test server through a youtube video before WGNA announced it -.-.....

It's funny when the players are better about informing each other about the test server than the Company itself.

How come the T-54 to Obj140 connection did not get removed?
I believe the devs said the connection is permanent.

A friend showed me a download to the New Test Server over 8 hours ago...8 hours earlier than Wargaming itself...

Mine updates automatically. Didn't know some people actually weren't aware that test went live hours and hours ago...

Random Dev: "Shouldn't there be an announcement about the test server being up now that it's ready?"

SerB: "How terrible..."

No one should exspect wargaming to do anything correctly ever.

Edit: For some reason I got this whe I searched the name on Wikipedia  :sceptic:  http://en.wikipedia....i/T7_Combat_Car

If they ever do put wheels in, next thing you know we'll get this monster for US Tier 10 Light Tank: http://en.wikipedia....bile_Gun_System
.
I wanted this for the Tier 10 light: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M8-AGS It's closer to the timeframe of WOT but still keeps 105mm rifled gun, steel armour, and no advanced optics unlike the M1128.

I have 8.8 test installed and when I use launcher, it wants to download 6gig again.  How do I update from 8.8 to 8.9 via 59mb like it says on portal?

When I shoot someone, and my spotter says "they dinged us!" it's inaccurate.
My spotter should say "We dinged them!"

Please teach my spotter the difference between they/them and us/we.
