When it first began, I wanted to participate in the Sandbox so bad.  As each iteration went by, I realized: It's just not going to happen.  Well, a couple of days ago, I got accepted, downloaded the client, and created the required alternate password.  Well, about all I get to do is look at the garage and that's it.  I don't know if it's something I have done, if it's as bad as trying to get on to an Armored Warfare PVP Server, or if it's just a huge lack of interest on the part of World of Tanks players.  I just don't know, but, it really doesn't matter anymore, I'm done with worrying about Sandbox time anymore.  Thanks for nothing War Gaming, thanks for nothing.

What tiers did you try to play? Tiers 8 and above are very playable. Almost everyone plays tier 10. If you tried tier 1 then yeah. I don't think anyone plays it at all. In case you didn't know. All the tanks in the game are already researched so you just need to buy one, equip and get into the battle.

You're a lot more emotionally attached to the sandbox than most people. Also, what do you mean that all you can do is look at the garage? I was watching streams of the sandbox and no one seemed to have any problems. The only bug I've seen is when people try to use the WZ 111-5A as it prevents whatever team it's on from loading in.

I have only seen tier 9 and 10, but it hasn't been a problem for me to get into those games. I think a couple of minutes is the longest I've had to wait.

Are you saying that you can't get into a battle, there aren't enough people?

That's not the experience I had, I usually saw around 50-100 players in the queue, enough for a couple battles.

I never failed to land a match.

I get a feeling it's players like you that developers splatter the words "Work in progress", "Sandbox", "WIP" ect. when testing beta games or major game updates.

Thankfully the 5A has been made "unavailable" so no more battles will fail to load. :D

​Yes, I am telling you I haven't been able to get into battle.  That was the point of the whole post.  But, yes, I have not been able to get into battle, to this point.  I have only ever seen a couple of hundred on the server and like about 50 or so in the Que, so far.  With that happening, not sure what to do at this point.  But, as the title says: It doesn't matter any more.  I am going back to the live server and the sandbox can be utilized by whom ever wants to try, I am done with that.

Get on in the morning, there's usually a few thousand Russians boosting the numbers. Games start very quick.

If you're playing tier 10 you should get a battle withing 15 seconds, at the most.

If you aren't playing tier 10, you're out of luck, it's a test server.
