Weekend Test clients were using a different server, alpha testers' clients have their own, and that server now becomes the CBT's server...that is why we are needed to download the "alpha/CBT" client for us beta testers....

 

 

:honoring:

I'm sure you *CAN* modify the weekend launcher's .cfg file to download the alpha launcher & client

you can also already download the alpha client, anyone can, though it is not linked on the homepage

You need to register on the .asia portal for Beta Status before u cna DL the game.

 

You don't have to register at all, even.  The launcher pulls updates before you log in, right?  Well, where does it pull those updates from... A public, non-encryped and non-credential protected file hosting server.  All you've got to do is pretend your browser is the launcher & find that said file hosting server.  You'll need to register to use that client though.

I'm pretty sure i'm using the old client from the weekend test a while back. I can actually log in right now and play. It says client version is 0.3.0 and that I'm connecting to the 'WoWS CBT Asia" server. Must still be the alpha version, maybe.

Yes, that's the alpha client, then.  I'd not know because I am not a beta tester (yet), but I think they gave weekend testers access a day early, I've already seen CBT youtube gameplay from today.

For CBT do we need to download new client or just reused the old client and update it?

 

Hi,

For the Beta weekend tester, you will need to download a new client from the website portal or you can refer to CBT section for download link.

This is simply untrue, it is easy to update the weekend client to the CBT by making a minor adjustment to the launcher config file.  Specifically, the link from which the launcher pulls its updates from.

So for those who apply for CBT today, we have to wait until WG confirms it via mail THEN get the link to download the client? That would suck though, if only they give the dload link to everyone when CBT form opens.

 

It may not have a big red button attached to it, but the alpha client has always been downloadable for everyone.  There was a good article on FTR explaining this.

Link for the DL is in the CBT section of the forums - if you have access to that area you can DL it at anytime...

 

(note - being able to DL and install does not = being able to login - you have to either be a current Beta Tester/Alpha Tester for that to work)

Well, the fact that the links are in CBT section (which are not available for non-tester) basically means that anyone who apply for CBT today (obv all are non-tester) have to wait for CBT confirmation from WG to access the link.

Basically means, more waiting (atleast a few days I assume, if I ever get accepted that is  :child:)
