i’ve often found myself being killed by vehicles which i later realised were actually utter trash with terrible weaknesses, it doesnt happen just to me, but everyone - and this leads to many shit-takes on the forums which negatively impacts the game.

i believe this issue will be part-gone if we allow all vehicles to be test driven.

I’ve also done some research and realised, test drive is locked because apparently, gaijin believes people would install the game, test drive a bit and leave, so unlocking test drive for all vehicles with some other mechanic (such as reaching lvl 100) may make it more considerable for the devs to actually implement this.

Would help a lot with bug testing. I had something I reported the other day, which affected a number of aircraft. I could test just for Britain, as I had those vehicles. But the same vehicles on other nations I just had to guess and assume

Yeah that would be great. it would also be nice for testing and bug reporting like Morvran said especially during dev servers. It would also be nice to determine if the top rank of that tree is worth it or not by test driving those vehicles.

I also like the inclusion of using the level system for test drive unlocks. I wish gaijin used the leveling system more than just it being rather meaningless such as using it to unlock higher tiered premiums instead of right off the bat(but that is another discussion and debate). Either way a big +1 for this.

Cool Idea, to prevent people from testing then leaving the game, Gj can add this feature for lvl50 players and above.

absolutely, and it being unlocked at a certain level is a great idea too

They used to have this at one point I think would be very useful to be able to test drive any vehicle and any weapons loadout.

I think this is a great idea, but only for players rank 100.
WHY do I think this high rank? Because I know for a fact some people just want to fly the F-14 or F-16, and if they don’t need to play the game, they’ll spend all their time test flying and there would be less players in matches

+1 It would be nice for people who want to test new stuff coming to the game outside of the dev server, let alone for the dev server too this would be a nice option to have instead of having to grind stuff if you haven’t got there yet to see what its like for yourself

limit to 100 lv lmao are you crazy? a new player wants to grind a line but he dont know which tank is shit or good so they grind it and hate the tank after siffering for days and give up on the game. also its a free game so why they cant just download it and play only in test roams? u got the f-14/16 by grind because u want to fight against other players but they want to enjoy it by flying and doing nothing else. yes improve the old players experience but lets dont forget about new player experience too…

Its human nature to try to give themselves an advantage or privilege.

no it makes sense

I have explained my reasons, most people in the game just want to fly the F-14 or F-16 and all this new stuff, they don’t want to play the game, if you allow test flying for anyone, there will be a lot less players and a lot less bank for gaijin

OTOH - Being able to freely test drive any vehicle will motivate people to want to play the game if they find ones that they like.

Test driving gets kind of boring after a while, and the people who would only install the game and test drive are not likely the type to put any effort into playing anyway. They sure as hell won’t become paying customers.

For a very few, yes

And they’ll delete the game once they fly the planes they want to, shoot the tanks they want to.

That’s my whole point.

And… your point is meaningless. It doesn’t matter how many people d/l the game and kick the tires for a while. Its a FTP game. Many (most?) already do that. In fact I bet many more would stick around after their introductory 10 newbie games against bots expires and they are exposed to the full fury of the seal clubbers.
