Hi Sara,
I'm interested in applying to be a tester. However, I'm throwing caution into the wind so to speak. I would like to get a little more clarity about android testing an PC(windows). I follow the guideline of android testing, I would have to uninstall the live version, to install the testing version. What's not clear or I may be misunderstanding is, after installing test version I can or can't have the live version installed? Also too, on the PC version is it the same as android about versions? And lastly, is there a minimum lvl one has to be in order to be a tester?

Sincerely,
After installing the test version, if the test build is different than the build on live, you cannot also have the live version installed on your Android device. On PC, it is different. You will have both versions (test and live) installed on your computer, and you do not need to uninstall one in order to play the other. There is no minimum level at all to be a tester. All are welcome. :)

I might even add as a new player your testing of the new startercontent is very usefull. We'll roll through it, we know what to do. but you have much less experience to survive on, so your feedback is more than welcome!

Hi, to all testers who have applied.

Thank you all for your patience, I know many of you are excited to start testing! Don't worry, you will be testing as soon as possible. :)
Ok, applied and off and on have logged in I always have access test server, just right now is hit or miss, what I miss greatly is logging into the forum section to find out what we are looking for? May I please have access to the forum section again please. The logging in to the forum is more often than not a hit or misss, sometimes it works usually not. I think the server does not like me :)

also having moderate difficulty on pc trying to get in game, took me all afternoon to find to reinstall, have lost several hdd's over the last few months, oh well current install will try looking forum for answer.
going yo either shortcut or directly in folder Connection failure oh well will track it down, My laptop DOES connect spent several hours looking around seeing things changed :)

Would it be possible to run the test server on a separate device and not have to uninstall the live server?

Hello Tester Applicants,

Just wanted to give you another update. As of today, you have all been added as testers and contacted with the necessary information. HOWEVER, there were a number of you who applied, that I was not able to add due to one of the following reasons:
  • You applied with a Steam account. (On the app, it clearly states that Steam players need to make SAC accounts in order to test
  • You did not spell your character name correctly, which means I can't find you in the database
  • You did not spell your email address correctly (if it was the same as your game login address)

So, for any of you who fit the above, please reapply on the app with the correction information. Sorry, but I don't have time to individually email you all with what I still need from you. So hopefully, you'll see this post. ;)
Hi Sara,
i would like apply been a new tester, I have filled the form twice but unfortunately I have not received confirmation letter yet. As i have used different email address to apply the test server, I’m not sure whether caused I can not receive the letter or not. Could you please consider my application.
my current server is US3, name: Brother Guan (lvl95 Fury Warrior). Email: <edit to remove email>
( this is forum email which is different with my live game email)

Tester applications are handled in a separate area. If they are adding testers they will let you know if you qualify.
Thank you for your interest.

Just a couple thoughts, when did you send your application and did you follow all these steps?
Important Things To Know Ahead of Time:
  • Since the hack, our process for hooking up testers is no longer the same as it was. We will instead be hooking up new testers in bulk, versus individually. This means it could be several weeks after you apply, before you receive emails from us with your tester confirmation and all relevant info about being a tester. In other words, please don’t panic if you do not hear back from us right away.
  • It is not possible to use a Steam account for playtesting. If you are a Steam player, please make a new account (just for testing) using our SAC client, which you can download here.
  • Android Testers will be emailed a separate Google invitation to join the VH Testers Group. After accepting it, you will be provided with the link to download the test client onto your Android device. *Note: it is not possible to have both the test and live versions on your device, so you will need to uninstall/reinstall the live version of the game, and leave/rejoin the VH Google Testers Group each time.
  • iOS Testers will be emailed a separate Testflight invitation, with the steps to download the VH test client.
  • iOS Testers, please be aware that because of the length of time Apple requires in submitting test builds that we often only submit to them after multiple builds, since we push test builds so frequently. This means iOS testers will often not be testing whatever the current test build is, but will be testing in later builds. However, iOS testers still have access to the SAC client, so if you play cross-platform, you can still test all the builds on PC.
  • If you do not already have a forum account with us, you will need to make one in order to have access to the information we provide about test builds, and to be granted access to the private tester section of the forums. If you do not include a valid forum name on your tester application, you will not be made a tester.

If on Android, check googleplay for updates. I was on test this afternoon without issues (on PC).

You can apply to be a tester at any time, I believe, though sometimes you may have to wait a little while before getting "hooked up" with access to the test server. Now might be a good time to apply, though.
