Will we see keyboard and mouse support on the Xbox One?

I don’t have an exact date but I can tell you now that the SDK was released we are working on it.

 

Now I used to play PC, but for many reasons I quit, one of the main ones was the fact that not everyone was playing with the same advantages. M/K changes the balance and should not even be considered. If someone wants to plug their M/K into the game now there isn't anything we can do to stop them, but making the game compatible will give them some huge advantages and we all know that WG will allow them t do stuff we can't do with a controller.

Well it was good while it lasted, but I recon that's going to be the end of the line for me when this happens.

Don't believe my battle count. It is missing 12355 battles on PC.

Even if they do, Its not an "unfair" advantage. When the same configuration, Is available to everyone. If you chose not to enable a M/K, Thats your choice, its a disadvantage, But it cant be called unfair.

I unfortunately feel the same.

I was a PC player too and left it because of many reasons. One was inequality. Some players had this mod, some another, many none, some play with high-tech keyboards and mice that have possibilities like makros and things like that, others only have standard IBM keyboards. On Console, all gamers have mostly the same equipment. Elite Controllers only have other button mapping and different shaped sticks if you want that, but stick pads are also available for everyone for low cost. The difference these things make are minimal. The number of buttons for example is still the same on all three consoles. Adding mouse and keyboard throws that equality over board. The aiming would be much more precise in hot battle situations for some than for others. The driving of the tank would be bad for keyboard players as they only have full throttle driving or turning that would throw off the aiming circle. 

Even though keyboard has some flaws, these can be corrected with special expensive gaming keyboards. There are too much possibilities that will ruin the equality. Sure, there are devices already out to plug in whatever you want, but the players using that are very few in World of Tanks I believe. In other games like Halo or especially Call of Duty the numbers should be higher, because these games are way faster.

i disagree.  It's a big advantage to aiming and shooting.  It's one of the reasons why PC is slower paced, because people don't miss as much.  Controllers make it easier to drive, so we also have more run and gun.  TD players are going to love M/K.

 

I'd gladly wait an extra minute for MM balance.

Not everyone is set-up for sitting at a desk playing with a keyboard & mouse, not everyone even has those items today in the world of touch screens & smart phones so yes it is a clear & unbalancing of the playfield.

EDIT:

If WGCB goes down this PC based path I WILL have NO choice but to move on. I do not play PC I play console I do not even have a mouse & Keyboard any longer my laptop is touch screen.

Odd question, but does pc allow for controller gameplay? 

 

I ask, because if not, it's an odd move to allow MK for console...

Only if you use software and do the control mapping yourself, their are pads you can buy which supports on Xbox/PS and PC.

Agree 100% was just talking to someone that plays another game & they say M&K has ruined that game. WT folk have complained about it as well.

I gotta be honest and say that's a pretty stupid thing to say.
I chose to play console, and not pc, for physical reasons and limitations. I don't really have any choice.

I dont have the accessories either, I also play from the couch. Like I said though, Its only a dis-advantage, If you choose not to upgrade. I for one will not upgrade. That is my choice. But it will be available to me.

Imo, as this is already a pretty casual version of WoT, which features essentially an even playing ground for all who partake (ignoring the discrepancies in graphics/frame rate between the 360 and the other consoles), adding M/K support is a poor move.

Every inch of this.

 

While I don't have physical limitations, I do have mental health issues and playing pc games has always frustrated me no end. It's why I game on the Xbox after all. So I can't help but wonder if the pc "master race" lot will just start undermining those with limitations more by porting KM across...

If I wanted to use a mouse and keyboard to play this game I would have started on pc instead of xbox. Might as well just shut down console version and put all resources into pc if they are just going to be like pc anyways. When m/k comes to console it will be time to retire this game for me. Too bad cause it has been my longest played and pretty much favorite game of all time, even with all the frustrations.

Yeah I left pc and switched to console for a reason. I say no to M/K and pretty much everything everyone else has said against its implementation
