Downloaded the updates now it will not launch with error message "The Data obtained from the service is incorrect."   Just sits there spinning now.  Is that because it doesn't officially begin until Thursday?

Interesting response for a WG STAFF member.   I'm not stupid as you infer.  I mentioned that in my post in WHITE letters.  I asking just in case it was an INSTALL issue of the update.   No wonder the people in this forum are so snarky.  It's the first place even the staff goes. 

FYI troubleshooting means you eliminate each possibility one at a time.

1. I wasn't inferring anything about your cognitive functions. It was about not reading the post.

2. Your letters are black, not white.

3. You said "Downloaded" not "Trying to download". So maybe my English is bad but I got it as if you already downloaded the update and the game won't launch.

3.1. Anyway, It's not an error or something since PTS server is not working atm so it can't tell your client what it needs to download and where.

Hi, the email should come immediately. Check your junk\spam section, make sure you've inputted the correct email, wait ~5min because sometimes there can be a delay. If everything is correct but there still no email, please DM me and I will try to help.

Yes, exactly. To receive a container with a T6 Premium Ship you must complete all additional missions during 3 Public Test Updates. 0.8.9 is the first one.

As always, looking forward to the new content,
One question @Bualar, will those of us that had our main accounts somewhat added (mirrored kinda) to the PTS the last round, still have that?
or are we going back to the way it used to be where everyone has the same stuff on day one.

Thanks

I’m confused by the patch notes. It says the Italian ships are part of the patch but that we can’t get the missions for them on the test server. Does it mean we won’t be testing the Italian ships or that we’ll unlock them in a different way? The Halloween stuff is cool to test but I think the Italian line is what many will want to test. Thanks!

The incorrect data error is new to me as the PTS is required to download install and update itself prior to launch, its done that for every PTS update im aware of, so unless that's changed, this needs to be addressed, or come PTS launch day, we'll get brick walled with this error

Italians won't be available for everyone on PTS.

Subs testing is on a separate server, there was an announcement about it. They are not available on PTS.

In the past, I could simply select my normal US credentials to log into public test.  After the last version or two and still now, it says my log in info is the wrong region.  Was there a change some time back that required us to create new accounts for the public test region?

Currently unable to log in. Just sits there spinning. I'll try again later. Edit: Never mind, just saw it was 9:30 PT...so,not my time zone. I think I'm about an hour or so early.

@Bualar There is a discrepancy between the PTS details for the Autumn mission and the notes above. It's DO 150k to CVs not IN CVs. Please ensure this is clarified to everyone as not every battle is going to have CVs in it and can turn it into an epic grind.

Oh, wow - that is a BIG discrepancy!!!  Especially hard to damage carriers if they aren't in every game....and pity the poor player running the CV!

and another big one - is it Just random and ranked, or Co-op and Random???  Totally misleading!

@Bualar - PLEASE clarify!!!
