Let us play vs pc.

 

Never happen with the 360 still in play. Not only would they have to rebalance all the tanks, they'd have to redo most of our maps. Even though we share basic themes and map names, console maps are typically very different. PC maps are larger and generally more complex. 

 

Oh, and the bushes. Lots of foliage in the PC version. 360 can't handle what the current systems have, it'd start a house fire trying to run updated PC maps.

If there is cross platform play I want it between Xbox and PS4. Having cross play with PC would give console players a huge disadvantage

 

pfffffffff nah I would love to stomp the pc community. The pc playerbase is even more incompetent than on console.

PS and Xbox cross-play would definitely resuscitate the game, or at least bring the small communities together to make a, erm, medium community.

I am for it.

Everyone is forgetting the one major truth!  Money!!! The issue being, if someone on Xbox gifts someone on Playstation a tank, Playstation doesn't make any money.  Also the same if it's reversed, then Microsoft won't make money. They have to hash out everything on the micro-transactions before they will go forward with anything.

they actually don't microtransactions are still handled console side as is gifting between accounts that won't change of cross play happens all it means is players can all play on the same server that's it. Everything else is still handled on the platform holder's servers in terms of money changing hands

It can never happen. The games have too many differences between them.

Yup crossplay for sure should be added to WOT and I would say progression also. It’s the way ahead for all online games now, WGN should be lobbying hard to make this happen.

 

Epic games lit the torch and all should be following now. I believe HiRez studios is also doing it for Paladins so that’s another games maker to add to the list.

 

Don’t see why crossplay and progression couldn’t happen with the PC community also, just handle it the same way Fortnite does.

From what I understand. Pc, xbox, and ps4 all perform different due to hardware. Some would dominate others because of being faster stronger processors, hard drives, etc

Console / PC cross play can't happen for WoT. WGCB has made too many "we're different" choices with regard to content and balancing for that to ever be a possibility.

This is a good thing. PC games always have an advantage over consoles because of mods and outright cheats available, not to mention mouse and keyboard controls.

I’m curious as to what the benefit sales-wise of a given Console is with regards to cross platform support. I doubt seriously most if any of these games are system movers. Can’t really say i have heard of anyone buying an Xbox or PS4 to play WoT or fortnight with their buddies.

 

Really if anything the fact they would see revenue from added gold sales and other marketplace items would probably be about the only real benefit for Sony. With regards to progression my understanding at least in WoT is that all Gold purchases are policed by PSN/MS and not direct by WG so that may be the single biggest hurdle aside from Sony being butts of course.

Mouse and keyboard is only an advantage in strategy games or reaction speed based shooters. WoT is neither. 

 

But I agree with the mods point, there are quite a lot of cheaty mods on pc that I'm glad we don't have to worry about.

You can't crossplay with PC anyway, we have a different game.

Crossplay is only for online play, your account is still tied to Microsoft or Sony, if you want to give something to someone with a PS, you have to buy it there, in the PS ecosystem, long story short, both Sony and Microsoft get their money.
