Hey John. Yesterday I saw you play fv304. My guess was 3marking.. so I killed another arty and never spotted you with my t-50. When you was the last left I tried my lucky shot all over the map and saved you from ripping apart lol.

trying,   every time I get close that accurate gun won't hit anything.    The same thing happened with the Bishop.

Fv304 is the only arty I kept and still playing. Love it. 2 Marks only. Can't do it( I wish you would. Well you certainly will))

I'd like to know what this is going to mean in terms of the effect it will have on the game for the future - move to PC maps? More bush cover?, better graphics, cross console play? What exactly does everyone think is going to happen?

If arty numbers 3 or more, A shitty game will be in store.

It should mean that all the bushes you see will actually exist which means camo and light tanks/mediums/TD's camping bush should work. Last known target location should be a thing too along with bigger maps and possibly even the Frontline mode. It would also allow for more newer unique maps (just stop copy pasting WG or doing weather versions).

I've received a 360 EOL award on my X1 last night: 2 tier VIII tanks (T34 Black, Hydra), 1 month prem.

 

WoT was my fav game on X360 and X1. Still play on the X360 because X1 controller is broken. Great to have xplay with X1. This game was revolutionary!

 

I've played 2 Betas: the first was only announced on the website, had my progress reset, then the 2nd was announced on X360, and my progress was again wiped before the final release. So I've been playing for 6 years (according to my tank badge awards) and I'm still not very good! :)

 

I will miss the X360 version.

 

Hope WoT continues to roll out successfully on the new consoles.

 

Roll Out Tankers.

Hello, everyone. I haven't posted here in these forums for more than 2 years. Time flies, huh?

 

Like everyone, I saw the message of the Xbox 360 version of the game ending support in July from the Xbox 360 version itself. I can't say I didn't see this coming but it doesn't make it any less sadder.

 

There's a whole lot of backstory involved but the short version is that I play on Xbox One (located in the entertainment/office room) daily in the mornings/afternoons and at night, I use the Xbox 360 in my bedroom. That has been the plan ever since we got the Xbox One.

 

What's convenient about WoT on Xbox 360 is the fact that it has "Cross-Progress", meaning that things done on one version is seen on the other version and vice versa. Quite useful. But now, that won't no longer be the case. I will miss being able to play on Xbox 360 as I play with custom music which is better and easier to use on the Xbox 360 than the Xbox One, and for other reasons.

 

Now, I'm actually concerned about this announcement because of what WG has been saying about the Xbox 360 version, "they'll support it for as long as Microsoft supports it." With this announcement, I'm concerned for the future of the Xbox 360 in general. I wanna be hopeful but I can't help but feel somewhat paranoid. I have a few theories to show as to what I mean:

 

The most hopeful theory: WG has ideas and features that they want to implement into WoT but the Xbox 360 version is really holding them back on doing so. Cutting Xbox 360 support will free them to do more things with the game. This would mean that their statements about the Xbox 360 version is kind of a lie; they were serious about supporting it but future plans for the game will be difficult (if not impossible) to implement with the Xbox 360 version still supported. If this is the case, then online services for the Xbox 360 will still be functional on July 21st.

 

The somewhat-realistic theory: WG, or at least the console version division, has stats that shows how many people are logging in to play and on what version. As time goes by, the log in stats for the Xbox 360 version gets smaller and smaller, to the point that it's no longer viable to keep supporting those players when there's a bunch more on Xbox One. Cutting Xbox 360 support will not only save them time on making patches and update on a version that's not played much, but it'll also save money, money that can be better spent elsewhere. This would also mean that their statements about the Xbox 360 version is kind of a lie but they did support the Xbox 360 for 6 years, when players were asking them to drop support since 2015. If this is the case, then online services for the Xbox 360 will still be functional on July 21st.

 

The paranoid theory: WG are serious of their statement to support the Xbox 360 version, which means that Microsoft will shut down the online functionality of the Xbox 360 on July 21st. I sincerely hope that's not the case, as not only will this go against their 'Xbox will support you forwards and backwards' mentality, but I still use the Xbox 360 a lot, not just for YouTube and Netflix, but for games on it that are not (yet) available on Xbox One via BackCom.

 

Some clarification would be nice to have.

I understand why they are putting the nail in the 360 but do wish they had waited till the new xbox was out. I had planned on upgrading to that this year.

I'm not sure why you need clarification. The 360 will be dropped.....it's about time.

Does this mean we can finally have more than 7 bushes rendered at any given time? FINALLY, going forward. They have no excuse for low bush count. Pc has great bush placement, I'm guessing due to Xbox hardware restrictions we have very few because of their system requirements.

I hope one update they just update all the maps with new bushes, many spots have "gaps" / holes in between bushes so you get spotted when you shouldn't I hope all that gets fixed

What, if anything, will be done for 360 players whose accounts you are essentially deleting (removing access to) unless they buy new hardware?  

Why have you NOT STOPPED GOLD SALES ON 360 if you knew this was going to happen?

 

It seems incredibly dishonest to keep letting folks buy your products, and then hit them with "oh btw you cant play in 2 months bye"

I’m on ps , this is good news for the game. I can see many potential upgrades such as cross play, bigger maps , maybe bigger lobbies and maybe visual upgrades to close to pc.

I know, right? Now that we have this “so long 360” news, it’s like we’re emerging from a bunker where we’ve been held hostage by an archaic machine, and we’re blinking our little eyes at the bright prospect of possibilities blazing in the sky...
