are you going to inform the 360 players ahead of the cull,if that has to be the final solution, or just remove us silently?

 

They are very reluctant to drop the 360 base, at least until MS stops supporting it... I expect that if indeed 360 was holding back cross play and they decided to push ahead with it without you.  Im sure they'd keep the 360 version running as its own server which would drastically reduce server population.

 

- 360 is their launch platform and WG seems to be very loyal to the base they have on that platform, and seem to recognize not everyone in the world has the ability financially or otherwise to update, and have said they will keep the game running until MS decides to stop supporting it

 

 

All that said however..... Sony and MS are all but guaranteed to launch their next generation systems around this time next year.

- I highly doubt MS will continue to support a system that's 2 generations behind very much longer.

I don't understand...

Longer ago Wargaming said they would do crossplay if zhey were allowed, that they only have to flip a switch to enable it. And that the only reson they aren't doing it is because Sony doesn't allow  

 

Now Sony opened crossplay and WG is still "looking into it"? 

Doesn't make sense for me.

Jeff Gregg goes into it a little during Extra Life that just because SONY posted the announcement that it has to be done on a case by case basis. I don't understand how it works but WG know more than i do so i don't really question it.

 

I hope to see it though and the fact another WG Title has it, gives me small hope.

that sounds like a nice way of trying to let me know that the inevitable purge is coming, but it will be carried out in a way that makes us give up the game ourselves first because the game will be virtually un-playable or not worth it,whilst not making the company look bad. a cull done in a humane/ish type manner maybe?(without officially announcing anything).

Just to kill the 360 bashing before it really started:

 

Everything here goes over the servers. Just for convenience we say, we have only one server.

 

Crossplay as it is now:

 

One - Server - One

One - Server - 360

360 - Server - One

360 - Server - 360

 

The consoles just talk with the servers via the internet connection. No console talks directly to the other(at least regarding the game).

 

Crossplay is also possible like this:

 

One - Server - PS4

PS4 - Server - 360

and any combination of that.

 

It is just a matter of licensing and rights management. We just have to wait.

 

If we had the next Xbox on here instead of the 360, it would be exactly the same regarding crossplay. There is just more talking going on, because there are more consoles involved. It does not matter what consoles there are exactly.

 

From what we have heard it is Sony with the issue.

That makes me think they don’t want to have a game limited to a console that was released a century ago.

 

And neither do XBOne players anymore :)

so are you suggesting that been able to crossplay with a last gen competitor is a good selling point for the PS4?

That's right. 360 is old. But it is sure able to run wot and crossplay.

There needs to be more pressure and more resources allocated to resolve this. Would you rather have us believe its apathy or incompetence for the lack of progress on the matter of cross play? Words are cheap. Excuses are weak. Action is needed. Seeing a sister game achieve what we have wanted in a minimal amount of time is only damning the optics of your efforts. 

 

I'm sorry for the harsh tone, but this one thing gets my knickers in a knot.

It is, because that means, more players. Who cares what the other players are on? The game needs to be filled with players and everyone of them needs to like the game to their own degree. If someone wants to play the game in the state, it is on PS4 and sees, that it can also crossplay with two other consoles, he might think, it is great, because there are plenty of players to play with/against.

so you also think that telling your potential customers that instead of purchasing your product they could instead purchase a competitors really old product instead.   I'm not sure any company would last long doing this.

I love seeing 360 players get upset about them being potentially dropped. Sorry but at this point it’s holding back development, they can claim it’s not, but it is. The Xbox One and PS4 have been out for over 5 years now and you can find them for $100-$150 at this point, and the next generation of consoles comes out next year. If you haven’t upgraded by this point then I won’t be feeling bad in the slightest when they drop 360, it would make the game just better overall

Usually console players are pretty proud of and loyal to their favourite console. I don't think that would be much of a difference for them. PS players stick to the PS consoles, Xbox players to the Xboxes. Sure, there are some players hopping consoles, but that are not many.

 

What I tried to say though, was, that, if they like, how the game looks on PS4 and like the controls of it with the PS4 Controller, but the might think, the playerbase could be too small to have fun, they don't need to worry, because older and other consoles provide the game with more than enough players, and they buy the PS4 to play this game. If they don't like, how it looks, they probably won't go and get a 360, just because the game, they don't like and even looks worse there is able to crossplay with the game, they don't like.

 

I hope that was not too confusing. But remember, not my mother tongue.

 

 

Also, what I initially wrote was just an explanation, how the 360 hardware basically can't be responsible for the delay of crossplay, by remembering, how the servers handle the game. If you have a toaster, that has an internet connection, and can run WoT, it would technically possible to crossplay the exact same way.

 

I don't really care about the sales and they were not, what I talked about.

the fact  still remains though,   unless you can go ahead and list all the games that are available for crossplay between the 360 and ps4.

I like seeing trolls like you attack anyone they deem beneath them, thus showing themselves up as the pondlife that they actually are.i tell you what would make this game better if it wasn't full of toxic individuals like you.

Looks like WG Console might save their jobs after all. This and +1/-1 and you guys are good for another couple years.

 

Would make for nice events. Playstation vs Xbox ops, Playstation only teams vs Xbox only teams, tank bowl except for consoles. So much fun to be had.

 

I hope it comes to pass.
