Raib0T said in a live stream before Thanksgiving that cross play was coming but she gave no timeline. Does this quoted information refute that statement?

 

If it happens, my guess it will be around the anniversary of the game, as it will be a big thing.

I went back and listened again.  Maybe I was reading into it more, or maybe there was more said about it later in the stream.  I don't know at this point.  I remember her being more definitive. 

 

The way they're talking, it's probably not going to happen.  This game died in 2017.  We're just playing an undead game that doesn't realize it yet.

I'm gonna hold off making anymore in-game purchases. Until we get an answer. If say. We hear zero except the same things for the next 3 months. Then we'll have our answer.

I'm giving them till the anniversary.  If nothing comes by then, I'll be much more critical of them.  "We're looking into it" just doesn't cut it anymore when Ships has it.  And it was really telling to me that when Ships announced cross play at that conference in Germany months go, Mercs started filling us with this nonsense that they weren't actually announcing cross play.  "It's not an announcement, they said they're looking into it like the rest of us"....Yeah sure.  Really looks like 360 is the sticking point to me.

Aye. Does look like the 360 doesn't it. PS4 anniversary is this month. 4 years. Must be a kick in the teeth for PS4 players . No mention of the anniversary.

I expect that even though they can turn it on in house doesn't mean it's ready for public deployment.  Just one example of issues to address first is how they're going to resolve gamer tags and clan tags that exist on both platforms.  I don't think the interface can currently handle adding more characters to designate P or X, so they have to figure out how to either squeeze more in or tell lots of players/clans to change their names on one platform or the other.  That's just one issue that comes quickly to mind.  I do hope they resolve it soon though.

Warships handled this smoothly. Players who are on the opposite platform just have a little symbol next to their name on the scoreboard. 

 

I suspect, like others have said, that Xbox 360 is the issue. Hopefully 360's online support will die when the next gen comes out.

WG won't drop the 360 until Microsoft does.

Not really. If nobody plays wot on 360 there is no point for wg to support it.

As long as wot continues to offer support to a 15 year old console we won't get cross play, and at this point cross  play is the games best bet at continued longevity, but WG would rather keep a leg that has gangrene than remove it, and now they have delayed doing so for so long that I can only assume they worry the body is weak and might not survive the removal anyway, metaphorically speaking.

I would love for this feature to be added to WOT, to see in-game how many dinosaurs actually still play on Xbox 360. According to some vague statistical data, it shouldn't be more than 6 players per match (15 vs. 15).

Besides, if Xbox 360 players would be identified in-game with a symbol, we would know who has the visual advantage over us, the players who play on current gen hardware. :)

Even Minecraft dumped support for the 360 edition.  It's only a matter of time.

If you want to be one of the 47 Ronin check out our recruitment post and then send a message to Prof935 (xbox) or dimka935 (ps4).

It makes so much sense to push for cross play to keep this game going. I play other games that have cross play and it is seamless and works great. I play on Xbox and it is such a plus to be able to play with my friends on or Xbox or PS.

At this point i believe crossplay will never happen and that WG is afraid of telling us because they know that'd kill the last hope of a lot of players and the numbers would go down even faster so they think it's better to keep us unaware. 

 

I'd love to be wrong though. 

 

This sounds completely plausible.

Can't we just do what Destiny 1 did and allow log-in from both Xbox 360 and One to the same account, but 360 players can only play with other 360 players?

Then give the five year old consoles cross-play.

 

Maybe matching 360 users vs other 360 users would finally convince the 50 people that still have them to upgrade. You may be onto something.

This gives us players more time to get those new CROSSTUMES such as "Dominatrix care bear from Hell" or the Rainbow unicorn or the Pink fuzzy bunny and last but not least the Insane squirrel called "NUTZ". Against the Anime school girls with mini's and multicolored spiked hair with no eyes. Oh what matches. I got right this time RIGHT? Oh darn.

And do you seriously think players with 360s are suddenly stop playing wot? If so, for what reason do they suddenly stop? No, the game is stuck with 360 until Microsoft stops supporting it - might as well accept that.

Maybe WG is planning on dropping 360 support soon.  And once that happens, cross-play can be put into effect.  Just an overly optimistic theory.

"The 360 was released in 2005. The Super Nintendo was released in 1991. With the new Gen next year, the 360 will be farther behind the newest console than the Super Nintendo was behind the 360."
