UPD. The test server of the 7.1 update will be stopped at 1:00 PST (12:00 UTC), January 5th. The test server is not planned to start any time soon; its launch will be announced later.
The public test of version 7.1 has reached its second stage, with 7.1.2 becoming available today for testing. We've also moved the public test server to North America based on your feedback. This should hopefully provide a smoother gameplay experience for you when helping to test out all of the new content and balance changes.
Please remember that the public test server is subject to the EULA and general rules of World of Tanks. The restrictions and punishments are the same as on the official game servers of World of Tanks. Please post all 7.1 related feedback here and bugs here.
To participate in the 7.1 public test, you must download the 7.1 public test patch. It is recommended you create a new World of Tanks installation for the public test. For help with your installation, visit this thread.
1. Copy the current World of Tanks folder (must be updated with 7.0) to another place for running the test OR create a new World of Tanks installation for the public test.
2. Download the test #1 update of 7.1 here (209 Mb) and install it over the copied/new installation.
3. Download the test #2 update 7.1 (239 Mb) from here and install it over test #1 of update.
Your World of Tanks account must have been created on or before November 15, 2011 to be eligible for participation in this version of the public test.
Note: The English language localization is currently being tested and will be made available at a later time. For a temporary solution, please visit this thread.
While playing, please also keep in mind that:
