Sandbox news: No NDA, nor arty limit?

Supposedly, WG did not keep their promises. First we begin with the supposed arty limit:

There is no 3 SPG limit on the Sandbox. I’m playing right now and I had 4 SPGs per side a few times already. (It could be that matchmaker was potentially dropping some rules due to low population, depending on the timeframe)

Moreover, another reader (Ragnarocek) sent a support ticket to WG and this is the recieved message:


I’ve contacted WG support with the question of placing sandbox videos on
youtube (after NDA announcement) and I got this reply:

Reply from Jan *****:


 Thanks for your reaction. There are no special rules for sandbox –
 uploading of videos and streaming are allowed under standard conditions
 as streaming of live, or public test servers. Streaming and video
 creation from sandbox is welcome, because it will make more feedback
 from players.

Best regards

  1. I know the guy who sent you that conversation (Ragnarocek), he is a known liar in the cs community. So I wouldn’t be surprised if he is bullshitting you, it happened before :)

    1. “-2 hours later, after web devs release sandbox notes on front page of EU and got banned by forum mods as a result-”

      There were no people banned on the first day or two for NDA break (mainly because the announcement was late), the devs and mods especially checked for it.


  3. “I had 4 SPGs per side a few times already” – as I wrote to him on Reddit – it’s only one of MM rules and those can be dropped (like on live server). He was playing at 1 AM in the morning, so of course if the MM doesn’t want to wait half an hour for a match, it drops some rules.


  4. This Ragnarocek either didn’t get in Sandbox / checked sandbox forums lately or he is just ignorant and malicious.
    Friend of mine just checked SB forums, NDA is still ON, and you need dev’s permission to publicly post/publish any SB content…


  5. Well he was right about the SPG’s though, had a couple games with 4 on each side. But it’s mostly 2 times platoons of 2 SPG’s so it could be an MM brainfart.
