One of the bits of news that has surfaced recently is the announced sandbox test server, designed to put potential new through their paces with a much larger group than the existing supertest – and on Monday, myself and a whole host of other EU community contributors got the chance to ask two of the team all about it.

  1. I think they should add more shell types, no premium rounds, so having APCR
    rounds with higher pen but lower damage etc. ?

  2. I’m glad they aren’t offering a reward for participation. This isn’t
    something we need people to do just to “get the shiny” or anything of the
    sort.

  3. savethedandelions

    literally a sandbox…literally.

  4. I’m already in it yay :-P

    I hope I can qualify even though I don’t have a tier 10 I do have almost
    all of the non premium low tier tanks up to tier 5 and quite a few tier 6
    and 7 tanks and I only have 2 tier 8 tanks 1 being the is-3 the other being
    the kv-5. The things that would make me more qualified to be on the sandbox
    server would be my 4 years of playing World of Tanks since 2012 and and my
    8k games so I believe the length you have been playing and how many games
    you have should count more then how many tier 10 tanks you have and I also
    have a big love for tanks because I even volunteer at a local museum that
    restores old military vehicles

  6. I cannot believe that they are not trying to improve the game, BUT The +/-
    1 tier change will be absolutely necessary to growth of the player
    population. There is nothing worse than being a mid tier and having to
    suffer getting killed early in a multi tier battle twice before you get to
    be top tier. WG is a Russian company and they are not yet used to “The
    Customer is always right” fact.

  7. ind4 they use sandbox server to give the cgc an auolader

  8. That you say they aren’t going to consider the plus 1 minus 1 scenario to
    match making is very disappointing because that is, in my mind the most
    troubling issue with the game. I know most regular players agree with me.
    (Yes I’m sure so asshole Unicum will come on and say I’m wrong). The very
    least they should do is consider changing the lower tiers 4 and below at
    the very least anyway.

  9. That´s a Doom sound at 5:12 ?

  10. Hmmm… Only one server, not NA, and requires at least one tier X. Guess
    that counts me out. They could’ve saved a lot of time sorting applications
    by mentioning these things on the application page. Or did I just miss this
    when I applied?

  11. I’ll just wait for Jedi to spring a leak.

    No wait, that came out wrong…

  12. Jedi in a blue arty, shame on you :P

  13. PCWarMachine.com

    More than likely what makes this type of server different is going to be
    the ability of the sandbox devs to change tank values on the fly. Meaning
    no coding changes need to happen, it’s just like changing config files,
    etc. Are there going to be sandbox servers in each geographic area though?
    Playing on a server based in RU for NA players just doesn’t work.

  14. First.;D

    Also, Sandbox apparently starts in a couple of days. I just got accepted,
    and the e-mail I received said it would be starting in two days. We’ll see
    if that’s when it happens.
