I'll grab muh pitchfork when Ships has it, but Tanks does not.



There is literally an Xbox 360 in a museum, and this is the best joke you can come up with?

The live presentation tone is a much more different tone than the one sentence in the article posted on Reddit/FB/Discord.

But the German guy talked about that they working on it and that it is not easy, but they try to have it until the end of this year.

I just don´t like how he stressed the word it is not easy. Sounds like there is something could not be solved easily, maybe Sony?

Yes, unfortunately we will just get “They don’t have it either” excuse/response until they actually have it. Then we’ll get an updated excuse/response why we don’t have it.

Will this statement still hold up when they get. Crossplay? You guys are so secretive and hide so much that it shouldn't be surprising people don't believe you. The secrecy is harmful to your reputation and just leads to people not trusting you. I can't presume to know how to run a multi million dollar company or a dev studio but I know what makes trust someone and constant lies aren't it.

 

^^^^^^^

 

The whole keep everything a secret until the last second thing got old years ago. Communicate with your player base what’s going on.

Anyone notice this thread was just moved to "Off Topic"?  Seems to me like this thread is very on-topic as to cross play on World of Tanks Console.

We are not going to share information or content with the community that is not 100% confirmed.  It's that simple.   Sorry this is not satisfactory to you, however, we are not going to share information that we know for a fact is not making it in game.  We also have our first party partners to coordinate with, and 5 other regions around the globe.  You said it yourself, its extremely difficult to run a game company, it's very tricky to coordinate information, especially when you have different languages, and both of our first party partners (XBOX and PS4) are currently running at different production times.  This has nothing to do with being secretive, but everything to do with content parity across the globe and across platforms when the content is published.  Making statements that we are secretive for the sake of being secretive is soooo far from the truth :)  Trust me, we are not in the business of torturing people by withholding information, but we hope the statement above clears any questions you have and creates empathy and understanding of the process that needs to take place before anything is shared.

The guy on stage said clearly in English that cross play between Xbox and PS4 was coming. Not that they're working on it, not that they're waiting for permission, but that it's coming. You may want to have your development mangers contact theirs because this was a very clear announcement of cross play.

 

Perhaps they got permission but didn't share that with your office. Or maybe they're lying. But they very clearly announced cross play with a big banner that said "PS4 XPLAY Xbox"

WoWSL and WOTC are two different developer studios.  We each work independently at different timelines.  Regarding Cross-Platform, this is an on going conversation for us with both Sony and Microsoft.  And regarding the  WOWSL cross-platform announcement on stage, we are in the process of verifying this.  Nothing officially confirmed at this time on our end.

The intent of the thread was to discuss WOTC and crossplay, as well as cite another WG game receiving crossplay as an indication that WG seems to have the capability to establish crossplay. I certainly felt it was a topic worthy of general discussion for WOTC. 

 

Not the first of my threads to be shuffled around though...some did warrant off-topic...this thread not so much IMO.

Thanks for the response on this.  I'm completely in agreement with not revealing things for the future until they are 100% confirmed.  Nothing is worse than a promised change or addition that then is halted because it was announced before it was 100% confirmed.  That is why this announcement is very confusing.  I wouldn't think they would announce this unless they were 100% sure about it.  I understand you're not them.  You're both your own studios.  But from our perspective getting cross play on one means we should get cross play on the other, unless there is some extenuating circumstances that are special for WoTC.  And we'd like to understand what those issues are if they get it and we don't. 

 

I understand this is still early and will still be a waiting game.  But this annoucement is really hopeful for me that we'll get cross play in the future.

This 100% - Just so you both know many of us are grateful for your the behind-the-scenes coordination and all the extra conversations that must be underway to get crossplay up and running.  

 

Many of us are invested in the success of the game and are interested in opening up a more in-depth and specific dialogue about crossplay's implementation- into the next year and beyond. :)

I just want what’s best for the game and I think crossplay would really bolster the game’s popularity and potential. I play both tanks and ships on console, but tanks will always have that special place as my first WG grind! :playing:

 They don't communicate very well even when things are 100% confirmed and same for  things that are 100% in the game. So basically their communications dept. is consistent. So, they got that going for them, I guess.

Welcome to the forums. Where you can call people stupid, just don't call them passive-aggressive.
