Why We’ve Done This
The current shop allows you to browse through the list of available vehicles, modules, shells, and other items, providing decent filtering tools and featuring special offers. However, its design hasn’t been updated, leaving much to be improved. So, we started working on a new version, pursuing two main goals.
1. Functionality: We want the “Shop 2.0” to become the go-to place for anyone looking to get new in-game content. For this reason, the new shop will provide extensive information about every item available.
2. Convenience: Instead of bringing small consecutive changes, we opted for making a completely new design from scratch with the focus based on usability and the overall look.
Everything Close at Hand
The horizontally aligned three-tab menu has been replaced with a vertical set of icons, which now only contain Shop items. The “Depot” tab has been redesigned and taken its place in the main menu, while special offers are now part of the Shop under “Best”.
How the Shop 2.0 Common Test Will Work
After joining the test, you’ll be provided with a certain amount of all in-game currencies (Credits, Bonds, and Gold) to buy in-game items.
- 100,000,000 exp
- 100,000,000 credits
- 20,000 gold
- 50,000 bonds
Together with this, we’ll be running emulation of purchasing Gold and Premium Account with real money—to test the full-circle functionality. If you end up lacking Gold to purchase a Premium Package and you decide to buy more of the currency, after choosing a bundle and clicking “Purchase” you’ll head to the Premium Shop, where a payment operation will be completed. Upon release, Shop 2.0 will allow linking and remembering preferred payment methods by default, but during this Common Test, the operation will be automatic.
