Have you ever done an A/B between 360 and XbOne? If not, I strongly suggest you do. If you haven't then please reconsider having an opinion on the matter until you have. I regularly play my old 360 (it's been relegated to vacation home) and the difference is not only noticeable but outright game-changing. We're not talking whether or not the outline is visible. We're talking "red outline through moving grass" vs. "straight line of sight with clear view of red tank". The grass on XbOne forces you to expose more of your tank than you need to on the 360. The grass on Bone impairs your vision, whereas on 360 you have unobstructed line of sight. My wn8 and w/r both took serious dives when i upgraded to the One. It is a very palpable and directly demonstrable difference.

 

Edit: Also, it is much easier to know whether your barrel is above or below the ridgeline on 360. All you have to go by on the XbOne is the much-debated outline. On 360 you get the outline, of course, but you also get to see the tank you're looking at. This is especially useful when there are multiple tanks in you reticle - you can actually distinguish the other tanks, and not have the outline o fsome other tanks suddenly overlapping the one of the tank you're aiming at like it happens on the Bone.

 

Edit 2 (because I always have to click 'Submit' before I come up with another point): To make the best comparison, let's first divide ridgelines into two different types. "Grassy" (think Steppes or Westfield) and "Bare" (like desert and winter maps, or stones and rubble).

 

On bare ridgelines, the views when you poke over are very similar. You get line of sight, and whatever is in that line of sight is viewable by you. You kan see the enemy tank popping into view, even if you're not aiming at it and the ouline is grey. Simple.

 

The similarity end, however, when you pop over a grassy ridge. One X1 you can have a very hard time seeing the enemy tank, let alone determine the way it is moving, because the wavy grass obscures its outline and blurs its movement. On 360 the grass simply isn't there, making the view more or less exactly the same as if you were poking over a bare ridge. That is a significant advantage to the 360 player. 

360?? Huh, who even plays 360 anymore.

Looks like you missed the point. again.

Both videos are old but they still show the differences.

If you move the reticle down a bit while 'aiming-in', you can see where the physical ground is when your reticle turns white.  Then just aim above that line.  The reticle won't bloom with small vertical movements.

 

Surely I'm not the only one who does this?

Please do this. Hate the foliage so much.

'Arty safe' is an oxymoron. Balance does not exist at tier 10.

Advantage??..yeah I'm calling [edited]on that lol when an enemy is spotted you can see their outline. you can clearly see the outline at all times. I don't understand why this is even a problem.

 

Here's a crappy side by side comparison of the same game play. As you can see, the outline is only visible on the one tank you're aiming at, and everything else is lost in the grass. Whereas on the 360, you have a clear line of sight at all times.

Nice work!

Undeniable proof wot is easier on 360 due to lesser graphics. Quite ironic, isn't it? Players who invested in superior systems are putting themselves at a disadvantage. 360 forever. :D

The bit around the 2min mark is what really annoys me about the grass in sniper view. On the 360 view you can clearly see any shot is obstructed by the dead tank, but on the Xbox one view you can't see [edited]. Same when any kind of hard cover is involved.

Exactly, properly leading a shot, only to have it hit an obstruction I couldnt see through grass is extremely frustrating. Why would anyone want that?
