​Dear Tankers and World of Tanks,

​Sadly Testing is not what it use to be and recently it has been a little crazy.  This weeks Test or update are the British lite tanks.  Yet all you see are every over Puffed tank in the game.  Within 20 - 30 games I saw Platoons of EBR's chasing the pure Tanker who though it was his job to Test British lite Tanks.  It was chaos to say the least.  Next was seeing "Clan Reward" Tanks like the T95, etc...list goes on.

​Do we really need or want those Tanks in Testing.  Being singled out and chased by a T95/whateverucallit. Really guys.  Testing should be for testing.  Still to this day , my Funniest Day of World of Tanks was the opening day of Testing for the EBR's.  Were there was 30 vs 30 EBR on the battlefield.  I had so much fun and as far as Testing goes.  You got a Great day of Fun while Helping the community you love World of Tanks.

   I said it once and I will say it again.  World of Tanks needs to Reward players when they play and act as part of the Community and Penalize those who "Bully" or Hurt the community we all love.  Hey I understand we all get bad games or have bad days.  But if Wot started to reward Good sportsmanship rather then Damage done.  Maybe World of Tanks would not find themselves losing there Fan Base.  As a player who has been around since the beginning.  Many Great Friends and players have left to other games that does offer a Better atmosphere to there player Base.  Even World of Tanks Blitz has started plans on going that route.  There player rating systems is Great .  I just feel it does not go far enough and could be the way to fix this.   Why are players who sit in back of maps and Farm  Damage get more Rewards then a player that helps his Teammates and tries to bring Victory to his Team no matter what the cost is.  Testing should be for Testing and not for childish games of Bulling and Harassment.  

   As far the British New lite Tanks ,   Well......  Quickybaby said it all.   NO WAY

you guys need to redo , rework or whatever to make those Tanks Fit the positions they play.  I feel bad for all English Tank Fans because there about to Bend over.......

   Love all of you and God Bless you all.  If not Me, Who......If not NOW , When.....

The failure of the EBR testing is evident. WG testing anything is a failure in general. So we end up with Obj 268v4, 279E, EBR, etc., to break the game yet again.

It makes sense to test only whatever WG is interested in testing, but it also makes sense to test those tanks against the stuff they will run into in the game.  I don't play on the CT server much anyway, because half the time I can't get on it, and when I do, I get a poor latency  about 3 or 4 times slower than usual on the NA server.

TKs, gold spamming, physics abuses, nonsense.  The "Sand Box" is just as bad now. 

 

Total joke.

Remember the funny little side game they gave us one holiday where the small cars ran around shooting at the big tanks?  That was EBR testing.  Every little side game WG puts out is a test for something they have an idea for. 

The "Halloween" game was a physics test  https://worldoftanks.com/en/news/game-events/halloween-special-2017/

Chaffee Races were physics tests

I saw a comment by one of the dev team (wish I could quickly find it), that the common test is more about testing compatibility and the like. That means to me, that for the most part, they are not interesting so much in what you think about the changes, but more about seeing if the client will work with the changes. That said, I'm sure that should a particular change come out in the common test that everyone that tested it hated, it would be held or changed.

 

Personally, I'd like to see the CT locked down to really testing the upcoming changes, not a worthless free-for-all that isn't worth the time to test.

Well, I have to admit, the common test is a flop for me...

 

Downloaded the CT logged in and that's it...Two days have managed to play in two random battles and one frontline battle. The reason being there is NO ONE on the CT. Numbers are very poor waiting to get into a battle can have you watching the screen for 10 mins with no luck at all. And when I finally did get on a random/frontline...No one is trying out the "new" British light tank units. Well, I tried to do my bit for WOT and WG sadly it is a joke.
