Supertesters are players trusted to test and provide feedback on early builds of upcoming World of Warships patches. Supertesters get to try out upcoming features, maps, and modes well ahead of the general World of Warships community.
Anyone is free to apply to become a Supertester. In this guide, we’ll show you how to become a supertester in World of Warships, how the recruitment process works, and what being a supertester entails.
During World of Warships’ development, the Supertest program played a crucial role. Supertesters are a group of volunteers who assist the development team in making sure the game is bug-free and runs smoothly. In exchange for early access to new ships, modules, and game elements, these players are expected to give feedback and report bugs to help the game’s developers make it better.
Supertesters test early builds to make sure that all features and content work as intended ahead of public release. They also evaluate new features and balance changes from prototyping to the final product. It’s a lot of work, but very satisfying. Supertesters have a hand in making World of Warships a better gaming experience for everyone.
Requirements to become a supertester for World of Warships
You must be at least 18 years old. All Supertesters must sign an NDA before taking part in a Supertest, so you must be old enough to enter a legally binding contract.

You must be available to take part in three or four sessions per week for the duration of the Supertest. You must present for the entire session, each lasting at least two hours.
You must have at least 100 GB of free hard disk space on your machine.

If you think you’ve got what it takes to become a Supertester, you need to have a genuine passion for World of Warships and an insatiable desire to learn about and try out new features as soon as they’re in prototype form. You should also know something about game design, if not be passionate about it, and be ready for the fun challenges you’ll face as you try to make the best game possible. To be a Supertester is to join a tight-knit group of people passionate about improving World of Warships.
Applying to be a Supertester
The first order of business is applying to be a Supertester.
You can register by submitting an application before the start of a Supertest at this link. You will be taken to a survey where you will be asked to provide:
a short text on why you want to become a Supertester,
the specifications of your PC or laptop,
any previous experience in software or game testing,
a quick review of a World of Warships ship, and
confirmation that you are at least 18 years old.
The developers will review your application, your conduct record on the official World of Warships forums, and your playing statistics. Make sure your account statistics are set to “public.” If you pass this stage, you will be invited to the next stage.
The next stage is an informal interview over Discord with two Supertest co-ordinators. If you pass this second stage, you will become an official Supertester.
Learn how to use the training room
A good way to test out new updates is by using the training room. While the training room isn’t that useful in the regular client (unless you’re running Clan drills), it’s perfect for testing for balance and bug changes. If you don’t know how to use the training room, here’s a guide on how to enable training rooms in World of Warships.
Once accepted into the Supertester program, your primary responsibility will be to ensure the quality of the game’s next release. You’ll be on the lookout for problems of all kinds and reporting them to the developers. You will also write comments that show how you really feel about upcoming features. In a nutshell, your feedback will directly help the team refine and improve World of Warships.
