I honestly view that as more of a saving grace attempt for Legends. I believe they have a lower player base then ours and it doesn’t help that they are more greedy than WGCB when it comes to money. There’s probably only the people that play it every day that are left.

On paper WOT probably has the larger playerbase, but when it comes to active daily/weekly players, I’m betting Legends has more. It also likely has more potential to add more players since it is a newer title.

Crossplay is something the playerbase base has been wanting for years, WGCB has previously investigated crossplay with PC and spent a hell of a lot of time looking into this but the PC and console versions are way to different.

 

ps4/Xbox crossplay appears a natural progression but like RaiBOT pointed out the 1st party partners have to be in agreement and you have to remember you have 2 competing companies who have to agree to share potential customers.  This is the major hurdle.  (Just look at Disney & Sony with the MCU)

Other games have cross play and the next Call of Duty has already said they have it as well.. 

 

I'm thinking there is some kind of "fee" you have to pay to get it.. maybe that's why the bigger games are getting it and the smaller ones aren't.

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.  

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.  

 

So... why point out that you are not secretive for the sakes of being secretive, when OVER the past 5 years and counting between things you said and other devs, have turned out to be so many [edited]statements.

 

We ask why you can't tell us what's coming in the next update. What do you do? First say that you can say 100% about what's in the next update. (Fine things break, balance and the super testers saying a nerf is not needed on tanks or some needs a buff) But now for the same issue you say, that you don't have the developers free to write up the patchnotes early... Or that you can't say what's being worked on because of your competitors. (Funny considering that War Thunder on both consoles have a wait time of 30 minutes or more. Unless you play with PC... but then at that point games are still limited. Armored Warfare... just doesn't work at all and crashes every time an atom moves around in the air.

 

At one point you said that you have roadmaps plan out ahead, only to tell us during one of the Weekly assault streams that your roadmaps don't go to Halloween.

 

I really don't get the console Dev team as a whole. Most companies would have complete Public Relations melt downs, but yet you'd keep going foward.  In the beginning the Dev team said maps are not the same size as PC because consoles players can't handle long game times. Can't have game modes because, guess again... console players don't have the attention span for it. Oh, or the one stream to where the devs said that the players don't know what they want. (The irony is someone must of noticed because now you jumped down the "technical imitations bandwagon. Which... didn't the Dev team say the game was reaching its limit on storage space for a console? But hey, only been saying that for the past 3 years!

 

I'll stop at this, next thing I know I'll be removed from the forums for pointing things out.

You and me bro :)  It would be awesome if we could do XBOX VS PS4 battles and then some!  And I get the your perspective completely :) We can only speak for ourselves and right now, we don't have anything to confirm for cross-platform for mercenaries.  When I think about it, whether its World of Tanks Mercenaries getting cross-platform first, or WOWSL, it is always a good step in the right direction to get the gears rolling :)  

 

We are looking forward to the future :) 

It would be quite sad and pathetic if WOWSL were to get it before us, considering the game is relatively new and WOTCB has supposedly been asking for it for quite awhile. We can agree on that right?

At this point, if WG wanted to offer crossplay, they would put in the development time to make it happen. The doors have been opened, we all know it’s perfect doable, but what we all fail to realize is their answer singnifies ambivalence towards putting effort into the project when they’d prefer to spend time else where.

 

Being a cynic that I am, I’ve always believed they would rather put more effort into pushing out premium tanks and other monetizations. The state of the game speaks for itself. 


#ConsoleTax

Why do the Defender and Patriot have higher costs on Console than they do PC?

Well, that is simple. The answer is because World of Tanks PC is a different game than World of Tanks Console. And their tanks are not always the same as our tanks even though they might look the same, the stats are sometimes different, the costs are sometimes different. So… uh.. You can’t ever, for anything whether it’s… uh… the maps, the gameplay, the costs of the tank, the look of the tank, the stats of the tank, anything like that. You can never compare the two. The only thing that they really have in common is that they are both made by Wargaming, they both have the name World of Tanks, and they both have tanks in them. So that’s uh… the reason.

I didn't read all posts. PUBG gets XBox/PS4 crossplay as well. (OK no WG game but it seems that crossplay is no magic these days)

And other than your opinion, what evidence is there that the cross play "problem" is not due to Sony and/or Microsoft not cooperating with WG as opposed to WG simply sucking your wallet dry? Which by the way is totally voluntary on our part if we part with our money.

 

 

And does this mean the Nintendo Switch can get onboard this train?
