After downloading the client on the 360 we fired up tanks and gave her a go. Just wanted to see how much detail is missing on the 360. It was pretty amazing to see what I have been missing because I play on the One..................:trollface:

 

 

 

360 Garage is polluted, smoky as heck and the text on the fonts seems blurred. We played with the TV settings a lot and couldn't get it any better.

360 game play has frame drop like crazy when you view the game being played side by side, makes the 360 client look like stop motion animation

360 was always the last tank to get into the game at launch

360 took 3 times as long to initially load the game

360 controllers feel like crap once you get used to the One controller

Other than the defined horizon, when someone states they would rather play on the 360 I really have to question their thought processes.

Back then we were amazed by the effect on the 360. That is until I saw the game on Xbone.

I need someone to question my thought processes. They're a mystery to me. :)

 

I still like the 360 better, and I see the fella play on xb1 all the time, on a nice TV, and I'm not bothered when I play on the 360. I guess I'm blind or something.

But, but the 360 is still the cutting edge gaming machine it was 12 years ago. Nothing since has rivaled the technological marvel know as the 360 since.

 

You need glasses OP, that's why it's so blurry. It can't be th 360's fault.

Me too.  Although Giaka seems generous today.  Seems to me he called the 360 a crutch console just a couple weeks ago. 

 

Giaka, I agree that WOT takes way longer to load on the 360, as well as getting back to the garage after a match, scrolling through tanks, etc. but as to your other points I just do not see it on my set-up. I don't load into matches late, and I don't see any frame rate differences.  It certainly isn't stop motion.  Maybe my brain just has a slower processor speed, being it was developed in the 60's (my brain, that is).  I don't really care what the garage looks like.

 

I dislike my XBone controller A LOT.  The right stick has about a 5-10 degree dead zone when pushing it left from vertical.  No exaggeration.  Aiming is seriously compromised, and I refuse to spend on another/different controller just on principal.  Even though I have some pretty bad drift on my 360 controllers, it is still better at aiming than the controller that came with the One.

 

I also find all the foliage on the One to be distracting.  The horizon issue has improved with the grass screen door thing, but grass is still an unnecessary handicap.  As many have said, grass in sniper mode should be a setting that can be toggled off.

 

In reality though, thought process isn't the core issue.  I don't play WOT on the One simply because I do not enjoy playing WOT on the One as much as I do playing on the 360.  It is less intellectual and more visceral.  Unless I'm platooning with someone on the One I will always pick the 360.

I'm honestly confused, I mean yea thank you for posting these (wouldn't mind higher res' images though, if you have them) but ..... I .....

 

I can't fathom how you managed to totally nail having the same image on both consoles?

Like same unit, locale, everything!?

 

Or am I being really dense? someone help!!

I literally burst out laughing on the two pics with the t92 ... the xbox 360 pic looks so ... naked. 

 

Thanks Giaka, great thread.

Yea I kinda got that but it's only just dawned, they were both dead then following the same player to mirror the image.

I thought they somehow were each the unit and in the heat of battle had posed.

 

 

I'll just go to the corner and take a good look at myself.

They kinda do and the effect is more on some maps than others.

 

 

Took the 360 for another spin last night for "testing". I focused on the grass issue for the most part. I rolled out in several tanks on my wifes account ranging from tier 6 to tier 8. None of these tanks had 6th Sense or any equipment applied. I only had my standard consumables but no premium ammo. Honestly, I feel if I switched to the 360 for a month my overall WN8 would jump 300 points or more. LOL It is absolutely ridiculous how easy it is to shoot tanks and snipe them due to lack of cover. The 360 players have a huge advantage over everyone else in this regard. Next time you're out on the battlefield on your One or One X and catch yourself saying "there is no f-ing way he could have hit me from there" I have something I want you to remember. They were 360 users. LOL  Win rate was 87.5% and my WN8 was 2144 for 8 games without even trying hard. It will be nice when they get rid or this thing and level the playing field or better yet give us next gen guys a better frame rate to make up for the ability of the 360 to shoot you through grass and bushes that aren't really there.

I left the 360 (actually, it left me - 3RL after 7 years) 6 months ago.

My 360 was never the last to join a match - actually, I used to join pretty fast. The 360 controller was better. Both in ergonomics as in quality. My 360 controller, after 7 years, was dirty, stained, dented, but not a single button squeeking. My One's controller started to squeek the A (green) button after a couple of months. And no, it wasn't due to changing ammo to skill ammo, I was also playing Forza 6 and Mafia 3 at the time. Shifting up and using stuff really worned it out pretty fast.

But yes, One loads faster, log into battles faster and the frame rate drops are rare when compared to the 360. I'm ok with the One.
