A new Sandbox has begun. This time, we kindly ask you to test a brand-new functionality—Field Modification. This system enables you to tweak the parameters of your favorite vehicles to better tune them to your personal playstyle, offering several quality-of-life improvements. 

If you would like to participate, download the Sandbox test server client and begin experimenting with the new system. We need your feedback for the test to be a success. But before you jump in, we would like to clarify several details and answer some of your frequently asked questions.

Field Modification System

1. Should I max out the Field Modification level now before researching vehicles of a higher tier in the Tech Tree?

The choice is always yours. However,climbing the Tech Tree is intended to remain a priority because it gives access to new vehicles, i.e. new gameplay experiences, a new level of impact in battle, and new mechanics. Once you’ve found the vehicles that you enjoy playing and have mastered them, that would be the time to look into their Field Modification.

2. Is Field Modification mandatory for every vehicle I own?

Again, it’s entirely up to you. While Field Modification does provide some flat bonuses to a vehicle’s parameters from base modifications, those bonuses are minor. Any gameplay mistake in an actual battle will have a much higher impact on the battle outcome than a 1% increase in some parameter.

Most of the value of Field Modification comes from Dual Modifications which increase one parameter at the cost of lowering another. Their value is in increasing the parameters you personally need, based on your playstyle, at the cost of those you are ready to sacrifice. Field Modification is about fine-tuning a vehicle to the way you play it, and that comes at a cost. So, it obviously should not be viewed as an essential component of every vehicle you own.

3. What are the special missions and Tokens? How do I earn rewards for participating in the Sandbox test?

Sandbox: Field Modification

Source: EU Portal

On June 15, the open test of Field Modification starts on the Sandbox server. This is a toolset that allows you to precisely configure your favorite vehicles depending on their combat roles. Field Modification gives you an opportunity to additionally improve certain vehicle characteristics and adjust them according to your needs and playstyle.

We’re currently developing this feature, and we need your help. We want to demonstrate the idea and its implementation, but we need your feedback on both the concept itself and its implementation in the game. Join the test, and together we’ll decide how Field Modification will be introduced to World of Tanks!

Testing on the Sandbox server

June 15, 2021, 11:00 CEST through June 21, 2021, 09:00 CEST (UTC+2)

IMPORTANT

Sandbox is a testing ground where we evaluate new mechanics and possible changes to the game together with our players. Each test on the Sandbox server should be treated as an experiment—the result of such experiments is never known in advance.

However, note that the costs on the current Sandbox server are provisional and very likely to change upon release. The Field Modification economy, parameters, and values are not final and might be changed after the test. All active participants will have an opportunity to complete a survey and share their feedback on the feature. Additional missions will also be available on the Sandbox server. Complete them to earn valuable items for your account on the main server.

Your Favorite Vehicles: How to Make Them Better

Which vehicles do you like to play the most? Every Commander can answer this question differently, but even if you have hundreds of vehicles in the Garage, you’ll still have your favorites that you enjoy the most. You’ve fought thousands of battles in these vehicles and earned many epic achievements. You know their technical characteristics by heart, as well as their advantages and drawbacks.

Meanwhile, each tanker wants to personally adjust their favorite vehicles to maximize combat performance. In some cases, they go for directives and different sets of equipment. However, very often, a more precise adjustment is what players need.

Field Modification was developed for such requirements. This is a special feature for fine-tuning vehicles, which will become available once a vehicle acquires Elite status. The feature will allow for more precise adjustment of your favorite tanks by giving you the opportunity to tweak specific technical characteristics. Let’s take a closer look.
