Now here is a discussion we have visited before.

 

WG wants new features tested and reaches out to the player community to assist.  But players have a limited time available to play WoWs in the first place so if the incentive to test is not attractive...then...less than ideal number of testers.  Also, better players, in my experience, generally avoid the testing bit overall.  They get more bang for their time in randoms/Ranked/CW.

 

Said it before...WG should hire a group to test their product.  Pay good players to test features before release.  Would save some of the retrofit situations we have all seen post-testing.

I like public test because I can play with ships I don't have yet. As for the test part, I provide input when I'm particularly happy or unhappy about something new. Much of the time I don't even notice a difference. I do wish the experience would transfer back to my regular account, maybe just the Free XP and elite commander XP.

That, and with proposed changes to ships and commanders you DO have and might want to change.

This, I feel, is the strongest part of it. As for the events, I just grab the low-hanging fruit and back out.

I earned 1000 community tokens last weekend just playing a few coop games in Tier X ships I never get near in the regular game. This was just part of what was available.

Will do the same again this weekend. 2000 community tokens buys quite a few flags and cammos or can be saved up to get a ship.

If you really wanna test a ship, Test it in battle with randoms.

If the people love it very much, everyone and their mother will get em with both hands.

If the ship is too crappy? Well... you wont be seeing that anymore in the game. You would think WG has had 7 years to build a ship worth something in battle. But no they constantly output overbalanced crappy ships that are meh in many ways.
