new premmies and

a PVE mode... this might prove interesting.

not sure I can take getting killed by a dam dirty clicker / droid.

kind funny to think that an intelligent AI will be flying a WW2 era fighter plane.

we shall see

A lot of cool stuff in there, fingers crossed!  I'm glad to see the pace of development hasn't really let up much and I'm really amped that the cinematics are now optional.

 

Very curious to see how the superiority mechanics are changing.  Downloading the CT now!

 

Quick FYI: since it looks like there aren't many seeders for the torrent, it's actually a lot faster to tick off the box to allow torrents in the update configuration (the little wrench near the minimize icon on the top right corner of the installer).  I'm getting 3x the download speed.  This probably won't be the case later on today though...

So unlike the last major mission (2 tier VI plane reward), where those plane's were made available to purchase as premiums, it appears 1.5 will not have this tier 7 premium we are playing for now available right away.  Very interesting.

Same here. Good call!

downloading now, and as the previous poster said, uncheck allow torrents and the download speed goes way up, never knew that.... Mine went from roughly .5mbps to about 3.5mbps  to almost 4.0mbps(my average DL speed). I plan on spending roughly an hour on the CT server before going back onto the live server to work on the monthly missions.

FYI for those who got excited about the Quick FYI:  This will wipe your current download.  So if you are halfway through the download (like I was) it would be better for you not to uncheck that box.  :facepalm:

why does it say register by July 29, which is past? It just was announced today wasn't it, or did I miss it?

So long as your regular account was registered by then, because that is when they copied everyone's account data to the test server.   So if you just started playing on, say, August 1st, and didn't have an account before that, you won't have an account on the test server to log into.

OK, thanks, I thought maybe you had to register separately for the test server

I grabbed the torrent files out of the update folder and placed then up on my seedbox. It looks like atm there is ~30 seeds and ~800 leachers. My seedbox up uploading at ~350 mbps pretty consistently I should be able to help seed for an few hours going and cut it off after 1000GB or so of uploading. Wish i had something like Google fiber at home i would seed (legal things like this) all day.

These changes look promising. As I was reading them I thought "this game is going to be great!". Keep up the good work!

   A quick summary of things I see and like from 1.5 CT.

 

 At the pre-battle screen, they went back to hard numbers for plane to plane comparison. No more % differences. YAY.

 In your profile in hanger view a new setup to show achievements is a nice addition.

 Your plane now sits outside of the hanger, instead of inside of a gymnasium. Nice touch.

 Any plane without a crew is highlighted on your plane carousel before you have to click on it.

 

 

Things I don't like so far.

 Crews are now a tab next to paint shop, instead of upper left corner next to your plane.. no need to add a tab in my opinion.

  There is no timer to let you know exactly how long you have on the superiority counter anymore. It still has the message, you  are about to lose, but    no ticking timer.

 

Will take a lot time to get used to.

 A lot of GT's on the map now, for instance a transport has 2 targets on 1 ship that you need to destroy to take down the ship. On the Brightside I got 6 GT's in 10 seconds before being rocket killed.

 

There are a LOT of changes that I'm sure people will have mixed feelings about. After 3 battles I am so far happy with what I see, the game is definitely moving forward.

OK so 5 more premium planes coming..... and we can go across all tiers without players now....  is it just me or does it seem like there are going to be soonish more premium planes in this game than actual planes ?

Downloaded the test server but it does not recognize my email and password from normal server. Retried it a dozen times so I know I typed it in correctly. Help!

You will need to delete your old Common test settings. 

 

Please follow these steps to resolve your issue:

Press WIN+R keys at the same time.

Type: %appdata%\wargaming.net\World of Warplanes_CT and then hit "OK" or press "enter".

Delete the entire World of Warplanes_CT folder that pops up.

Now please close the Appdata folder and launch the game.
