Why do I not get a verify Email when I try to set up for beta test?

I have never been able to run any test account because it never sends a verification code to my email....

I use the same email account as my NA server logon.

Unable to get the update.  In the past, bringing up the game I'd get a notice "new version", etc. and could easily update the version.

 

Now, it's letting me attempt to login, denying it saying there's a newer version, but no button to click to update.  The only option I can think of would be to download the entire game from scratch from the WoWS website.  Missing something?

It's a separate game client through the Wargaming system. You can't access it by Steam, although you can link your Steam account to your PT account so that your earned rewards for PT participation go to your main account on Steam, if that's where you play. Typically the rewards require earned XP and/or combat ribbons, and many can only be done through ranked or random battle. Typically there's a main mission, which has some lengthy requirements. Last time it was something like "Play 20 random or ranked battles, Earn 30,000 BXP, and get 150 citadel, fire, flood, or torpedo hit ribbons." The last one gave you 100 Royal tokens for the current event. You have the entire Public Test period for that update to accomplish the mission, which is two four-day weekends. Then each individual weekend has smaller tasks for lesser rewards, i.e. play a random battle for five camos, or play three random battles for 3x of each standard signal. Often those tasks incentivize something that the devs want tested more.

Historically if you participated in all three PTS events for the three updates in a 'season,' you also got a Tier VI premium ship crate, but I don't recall anything being said about that for the Winter Season, of which we are currently in the second PTS event. @FemennenIy and @Hapa_Fodder, can this be clarified?

If you participate in a whole year's worth of PTS events (four seasons), you get a special insignia.

Who knows? Maybe the public test and next patch will be all about the April Fool's Sci Fi event, and as an early April fool's joke they didn't even mention it in the public test announcement

I would gladly participate if it didn't require the installation of the WGC.  Shame.  I always enjoyed the public test server games.

Have you tried to run the program with a direct link on your desktop?

C:\Games\WOWS_PublicTest\WoWsLauncher.exe

I recently changed computers and I don't have the previous PTS client anymore.  I need to re-download it and it appears you can't do that anymore without installing the WGC.  Also, someone above said something along the lines that the Update button on the PTS client doesn't work/exist anymore when you try to login with an old client.

Yeah, from the PTS announcement:

If you want to join the Public Test for the first time, register your account on the Public Test portal, install the Wargaming.net Game Center (WGC) and the test game client. You can also log in using your Steam or Microsoft Store accounts and create an account for the Public Test.

Seems I won't be doing PTS anymore.  Shame, that is where I went to experiment and the play style was always different, much more diverse player base it seemed.

Hard to test when all i get is "server overloaded" - tried with cv and ca - same result.  20 minutes trying to get into a co-op game - that's enough for me for tonite.  maybe later or tomorrow - we will see.  rewards not worth the aggravation...

Finally got into some games.  And you know what - I am not going to be spending doubloons on those loot boxes - except in the PTS.  90 loot boxes at 1000 doubloons each!?!  well at least it isn't an unlimited number.

Reward on Main Account Mission #3 seems to be missing.

Hey guys, there is a confirmed technical issue that affects visibility of Mission #3 and its progress for some players. No need to worry, just complete the criteria and the reward will be delivered to your Main Account. If you are unsure about total Base XP earned, check the progress for Winter Season #3, it also tracks total Base XP earnings.

This what you need? It's been tricky to find since the WGC became a thing. Figured I'd link just in case it helps.

Here is one bug on the PT server but not sure if it will happen on the live server.

7&10 does not show what you get.   

I think I spent up to 13k doubloons and no ship.   Not sure if they give you one in the PT server.

WG guys - It would help me and others I know if a test plan was written up in a checklist for testing the new features and items. Because you make me feel bad when you give me a survey on the live server for stuff I was not even aware of being tested on the PT sever. It's like I have to stumble into what needs to be tested instead of going directly to the feature that is changed. I feel I am not doing you guys any justice by that stumble method.
