    WoT Console is everything WG promised for WoT PC but never delivered because “it wont work”, and everything PC players want…

    -HD tank models and skins (some of the current HD models dont look that good, and after 2 years we still miss a lot)
    -HD maps
    -weather effects
    -balanced premiums (you pay for skins, not for exclusive OP tanks)
    -no teamkill/teamdamages
    -penalities for self destruction
    -no mods

    If it wasnt for the paid multiplayer I’d move there, but I dont wanna pay XBL Gold just to play one game online when its a free2play MMO…

    If they just add Havok WG PC will get so much complaints…

      Soviet calculators holding us back. WG never sucks by just doing something badly – they always go a whole new direction noone expected, when it comes to sucking and failing. As long as we keep paying for the PC version, there’s no need to change for them.

      I hate WG for their undeserved fame and for holding down their World-of-games’ potential on a third world level.

      You guys have one thing Console will never get though: Some goddamn balance changes. We still have Tier X TDs with 400+ view ranges and 850 alpha damage.

      Except FV4005, that was implimented with post nerf stats, because adjusting the line would be too much work.

      Crew skills being put behind pay walls.

      And we are still being held back by limitations of the decade old Xbox 360.

      Not saying we don’t have some nice things, but its faaaar from the paradise that some of the PC community seem to think.

      A couple things:

      -“balanced premiums (you pay for skins, not for exclusive OP tanks)” the console version is getting the same premium tanks as PC in addition to the reskinned tanks, it just hasn’t caught up all the way yet.
      -“penalities for self destruction” it’s worded oddly but this update doesn’t penalize suicides any more than it used to. See: http://forum-console.worldoftanks.com/index.php?/topic/158504-suicide-clarification/
      -“If they just add Havok WG PC will get so much complaints…” Havok is actually used in World of Tanks Console, although nothing too dramatic. See: https://youtu.be/LPwsJJQf1k4

  5. This is an impressive patch, wow, looking forward to seeing this draw more players to console which will encourage PC and blitz to implement/build off these changes. This might sound weird and unintuitive but console world of tanks is not pc world of tanks. It’s alright to compare between the two because it is fun and gets ideas going but you have to remember the two games are different via controls, maps, and overall ecosystem. Simply put, two different games need two different systems of balancing and the end product should not be identical. I don’t know much about the actual balancing side of any of the world of tanks systems so I can’t say anything solid of the matter. Just food for thought inbetween enjoying future buffs on your fav tanks.

      It’s pretty good as long as you don’t play tier 10, it’s a shambles because WG console only care about spreadsheets and not how it affects the gameplay. Not one tier 10 TD has had an Alpha Nerf and the muppet Leo Flores (head balancer) says “the WT-E100 is one of the most balanced tier 10 TD’s”, it still has the 6 round clip and is the same as when the PC first had it.
