How long do those that are excepted get to go there? Or better yet how long does testing  usually last.

The current sandbox is open for 5 days. They may have another round of testing after.

Go check out the new maps.  That alone is worth updating the client.

They are gorgeous.

Definitely make the tiny play areas "feel" much bigger.  Graphics and visual effects are far more advanced, and I had pretty good performance at max settings despite it being on a world wide common server with 150 ping.... (I usually have 30).  So their new graphics engine is not a resource hog.  

 

There will be a learning curve, as some map features are changed, and hiding in bushes is a bit different.  I got spotted a LOT in places that used to be safe.

Overall, I think they did a tremendous job.  My only complaint is the total removal of all goating.  It may have been annoying to some, but it was fun.

Even with the Bugs the Maps are Sweet...      They've made some Additional Changes as well....      Found a Cool spot on Steppes for my Kranvagn, Set either a Type 5 or Foch B on Fire with the 2nd Hit...     Almost finished him off with it too....     Has a Nice Overlook for anyone with Good Gun Depression....

 

Takes a minute to get your Bearings though at first Glance....     Have had to drop to the Mini Map to see where I am....

just got the invite to it but having to change your password to get on is kind of dumb in my opinion.  And I have not been sent the link yet after I have tried to reset my password.  I have seen the maps, but I would like to drive around them some a bit

Yeah it's pretty weird, these maps that have been reworked seem so familiar but then they don't.

As near as I can tell, the Password is just for the Sandbox, nothing more....          

 

Have Aslain's set with Auto Log In for when the Computer had a Brain Fart I still haven't fully Tracked Down...     Saves Time on Reentering the Game before getting Decimated....     lol.        Hasn't affected that at all since I did it Last Night, so that's a Pretty good Bet....

 

One Issue is some silly Glitch with the Power Button Settings...     Switched both Settings to None and that Mostly resolved the Issue...     Now I just get the Occssional Interuption, every 4 or 5 Days one crops up....       

 

Oh, and I did forget to mention that I Reskinned 4 of my Tanks and they Worked just fine....      4202, Cent 7/1, AX, and Kranvagn all got Face Lifts in the Sandbox...     Though the AX I still don't see exactly what's different, but it was nice to see everything worked.....

LOL, I know the spot you're talking about on Steppes.  If the enemy has an arty, though, you'd best be ready to bug out in a flash.

I hope they make the sandbox sever available for MacOSX I got invited but don't run PC anymore.  So WarGaming if you see this message please respond so that I know.

Doing a Copy/Paste of the Sandbox Client to a 128Gb USB Stick right now and a Complete Install in HD of the Test Server...      We'll see if all works out and if I can get all the Buggy Stuff in the Sandbox Cleared out...

 

I mean it does make sense when ya think on it...    HD Client running at SD because of Space Constraints halting the Download...    All goes well I can Complete the Download and HD Install and solve those Bugs, at least on my End...   lol

If you are excepted, I assume that meas never.   If you are accepted... it could take a wee bit of time... have patience :)

You don't change the password for your real game. That's just for the SB. It is cool to drive through these new maps.
