Earned & Spent items

Nothing counts on the dev server. Anything you do is not transferred to the live main server, such as Research Points and Silver Lions earned, achievements unlocked and vehicles unlocked. This also applies to any Golden Eagles, Silver Lions and Research Points that you spend on the dev server — nothing will be subtracted from your live server account.

Leaving Feedback & Bug Reports

All feedback and bug reports help us to fix any issues or change any features before the major update is released on the live server.
