what the point of the test server, when every one play t10 but there no real player there testing the new feature, changes to over-match, at lower and other tiers

 

i would recommend not to put free exp or put rewards for people testing lower tiers that can be given to the live server

alot of the players that go to the test server do not have tier 10s themselves so it is their way of playing 10s without the grind

I have had no problem playing tier 6 upwards OK I was allways bottom tier until I played tier 10s but there are players in the mid tiers, to test the new over match I grabbed a couple of friends and jumped into a training room to get some idea how it will work i will be doing the same later if you want to join me OP

Yes, I have similar ...complaint?? I play all below tier 7 and really would like to test the bottom tier tanks as well.. alas will have to wait till the regular update fo taht I think.. Yes folks who are not up in the upper tiers like to play 8 9 10 here.. myself included.   As far as being number xxxxth in queue .. the test servers are in Russia / CIS and get overloaded during the day in US and asia.. have to wa8it till russian morning to get on with any sort of assuredness

So... You do realize that that would make the test server truly pointless. The test server is used to test maybe new tech lines or mechanics being released in a new update. So the free EXP and credits are to help you buy at least the T10 of the tech line. I can guarantee you that there are people still buying the lower tiers, but it is so uncommon. However a second reason for the test server is to go try out a few tanks at tier 10 players may consider grinding for. Because lets be honest here, would you want to spend lets say oh a few years of your life grinding for a tier 10(wouldnt say a few years but lets just use that as an example) that is completely useless and regrettable? No. So the test server gives you the ability to test certain tanks that you may want to grind for in the future.

Everyone needs to stop playing tier 10's and start playing tier 7 with all the tier 8 buffs.

Test server only tests if things "work".  They give near zero insight about the meta or how the new mechanics and adjustments will play out in the meta.

I'm reading some conflicting interests here. One party is perfectly content just getting on to try out the grinds/fool around and the other party is annoyed that everyone only plays Tier 10 matches. If you don't like seeing only Tier 10 matches then head back over to the live servers and play there. The test servers are here for everyone to do what they wish; within reason. Majority of the things being tested are the higher tiers, excluding the occasional low tier premiums, and some of the maps they want you to test cannot be accessed by lower tiers. Just sit back, relax, and enjoy the game.

Not to mention nothing ever gets tested as everyone is in T10's using nothing but gold rounds fully max out crew. Its really pointless as it shows nothing...

 

they should limit gold rounds to just 5 and force normal rounds as its the most used rounds in the game on normal servers... it would actually show how effective armor is
