Greetings, fellow commanders!
If you're reading this, it means that you have reached the most hidden and secret section of the forum
What is a supertest? What do people do over there? How to get there?
This FAQ was specially prepared so that you can get answers to them.
If this does not happen, feel free to ask your question in the comments; We will do our best to give you an answer.

Please note that questions not related to the supertest will be deleted without warning

Q: What is the "supertest"?

A: Supertest (hereinafter referred to as "ST") is a process of testing game versions (and their performance) that have not yet been released by a limited number of volunteers - super testers.
Conducting ST can help both in preparing the version/content for public release (elimination of bugs, checking the content and functionality ), and in evaluating various ideas at the prototype stage (running in "raw" ideas and collecting data on them). In other words, ST is a "closed kitchen" in which a number of users help developers "cook" the game.


Participation in ST is recommended for players who:

  • Like to play World of Warships, they want to help in its development and be the first to see all updates, sometimes at the prototype stage;
  • Are interested or even versed in game development, are not afraid of difficulties, like to delve into the essence of things and get results;;
  • Want to become part of a friendly, close-knit team, united by common interests and aspirations.


Q: I'm in! How to get there?

A:  We recruit periodically, stay tune in the forum and news for any open recruitment.


Q: Are there any age restrictions?
A: Yes, you can only take part in the super test if you're 18 or older, as the volunteer must accept a non-disclosure agreement (NDA).


Q: What will my tasks be?

A: Usually the tasks of a supertester include playing a certain (test) version of the game, checking all the mechanics, changes and writing bug reports (posting messages about errors and defects found while testing) and writing a feedback (your opinion).

 

Q: Is ST obligatory?

A: Yes and no. You can participate in the super test or you can leave the super test. But we have certain requirements for current participants of ST, which include an active participation of scheduled test sessions and completion of tasks on time. We don’t plan to keep “nonentities” in the ST, neither do we want to kick out testers for minor violations or rare absences.


Q: What's the schedule for testing sessions?

A: On various days, but usually from 16:00 to 22:00 Singapore time (UTC+8). If you can’t participate in ST during this period, it’s best for you not to apply.


Q: Wait! What's the salary? Some kind of bonuses?

A: On ST of World of Warships there is no salary and never will be. Super testers help us because they like to help and participate in the development of the game we love. In addition, super testers are the first to play new game versions, they have an opportunity to communicate closely with the development, to realize their passion for games. We, in our turn, express our gratitude both in words (and a separate forum group), and sometimes we give rewards to the most active participants. Activity is examined on the basis of a number of indicators that we occasionally summarize and publish for all supertesters.


Q: Who are the "Super test coordinators"?

A: Coordinators are volunteers like super testers, but with more responsibilities and different tasks. Responsibilities of the coordinators include ensuring the normal course of testing, supporting ST recruits and assisting in processing of feedback and bug reports. Coordinators are selected by the supertest manager.

 

Q: I know all this because I participate in WoT (WoWp) ST . Can I participate in your ST?

A: Yes. Our ST's are organized independently. There are no special restrictions in World of Warships ST. And the issues of participation in ST of other projects should be decided with your curators.


Q: I am a member of another volunteer group of the game, may I participate in ST?

A: We do not accept in the ST the participants of the following volunteer groups:
Community Contributor
If you participate in other volunteer groups, then you should carefully think about whether you have enough time for the high-quality fulfillment of tasks on ST.

What if someone is not good with english from china? 

can he join as chinese ST or not brother?

@POIShimakaze

In any ST activities, we use English as a primary language. All VC, guidelines, patch notes and important messages are in English.  Therefore, we expect applicants to have fluent English skill.
We take applicants' English skill into account in recruitment.

We do not have any options to recruit people as "language-specific ST" now.

@Planet_Rider

We do not have clear deadline (but the form will be of course closed within 1 month). We will close the form when we receive enough applications.

I understand your situation. However, we, unfortunately, do not count battles in any other servers in our current recruitment standard.
