[UPDATED] The Public Test Server has been stopped. Thank you for your active participation.
[Original Post from 09/05/2012]
Starting September 6th 16.00 UTC the Public Test Server for the 8.0 update begins!
The previous test server primarily featured new physics, and we appreciate all of the feedback we got from that test; however, this time around we must point out that we're looking for feedback on the update as a whole, and not just the physics.
This means that we'd prefer if players engaged with battles as normal (no truces for taking your tanks off sweet jumps!), as we're looking for feedback on absolutely every facet. The more feedback we get, the sooner we can release a quality build of the 8.0 update!
To participate in the test you need to do the following steps:
1. Copy the game client to the separate folder
2. Install a small launcher update found here ((8,74 МB)
Attention! Please, install the test game launcher in a different folder, other than the current game client version! Also switch off the game client before installing the update. Only players who have registered prior to 0:00 UTC 02.09.2012
3. Update the game via launcher. 3.7 Gb approximately
*If you have already installed 0.8.0_test1 Public Test game client version the update will download about 191 MB via launcher and update the Public Test game client to the 0.8.0_test2 version.
Please, keep mind certain special features of the public test server:
- Payments are not accepted on the public test server.
- All test accounts will receive a one time crediting of:
- 100,000,000 Free XP
- 100,000,000 Credits
- 20,000 gold
- Progress won't be transferred to the main NA server.
- Credit and experience rates will not be increased for this test.
- If you are having troubles with entering Public Test please tick off the 'Save password' option and re-login.

Bugs related to the 8.0 public test should be posted in this special sub-forum.
