Dearest fellow tankers !!
I've found a software, that is fully capable of handling a game pad and WoT together (you know, a PC USB game pad that is), no matter the layout or anything.
It is called Pinnacle Game Profiler, it has a 20 day free trial, and a less than 10 USD full retail price (of course there are other methods to get it, but I do not advocate such behavior..).
The software has full email/forum support, a fully fledged help file, and it is updated regularly (weekly bases).
It is completely malware free, I've tested it, and its components with Microsoft Security Essentials as well, as I've sent it to the Microsoft Malware Protection Center as a sample, they have found it unsullied as well!
I'd like to recommend to you, that if an other player, who is looking for a way to play wot via a game pad, from the couch, that you lead them to this particular software.

If you are looking for a profile, I recommend you using the default one, than modifying that!
It can be found here:

Best regards,
Imre
Edit:
If you are not into playing WoT via a ps/box controller, please leave this thread clear.
This is not a debate about whether using one control method or an other, but rather a guidance to those, who've already interested in the controller.

This is not a debate topic, if you are not interested, please leave the thread clean!
Thank you!

Game controller of any sort  < Keyboard & mouse combo

While you're sat back on your couch chillaxing and trying to hit weakspots with your fiddly controller, staring at your massive TV 6 feet away, I'll be peering at my 1440 x 900 3ms response gaming monitor from less than 2 feet and precisely putting a shell between your commanders eyes with my Mad Catz RAT 3.

I am sorry mate, but haven't you read the title of this forum thread? I've started it with "Are you into", and there is a question mark at the end of the post title.
Trust me, there are players who would like to play WoT via a game pad, and if you are not one of them, please leave this thread be, as i'd like to dedicate this to players who are interested in playing via a game pad.

You shouldn't be promoting any kind of gameplay with a controller. It's like trying to butter toast while wearing boxing gloves.

World Of Tanks relies on precisely aimed shots, especially once you get out of Tier I & II, so forgive me if I discourage couch potatoes from messing up their team's chances by fumbling with poorly aimed shots & poorly controlled tanks.

A 4 year old in charge of a keyboard and mouse would do just as well as a controller-using adult. Why would you advocate hampering your team like that?

The most console shoters(shoter on console is bs) have a light autoaim, thats why they are playable with a game pad, as long as your software can't enable such autoaim in the PC version it can't work as good as a mouse + keyboard.

But there is a Xbox version of WoT, if you want to play with game pad and don't suck to much.

Cool eh? Now that's a controller!

Glides like silk on a gaming mouse mat, thumb rest to stop drag from your big clumsy digit, programmable side buttons for repairs and med kits, 3500 dpi switchable at intervals down to 400 dpi for precise snipering.

It's like legalised cheating.

I have a better win rate with my budget 20$ logitech laser mouse (just 2 programmable side buttons and barely ergonomic), so I think it's more down to the user than the gadgets  :blinky:
Also, I've seen a guy with such bad hardware here that he plays on min settings and has an average 500ms lag (and he manages 60% win!) I doubt he has a laser mouse either (probably IR).
So If something like huge ping doesn't burden a good player, why should a thumbstick?

Hats off to you, but I'll take all the help I can get. 60 day stats are pretty similar to yours...
-
What is this tanker playing? Nuthin but arty? TDs? He sure ain't playing a speedy flanking med like the Cromwell.
-
Try mastering that tank with a game controller. It ain't happening.

I had a 2 month break during the summer, but I didn't mean that as braggin or anything of the sort.  :smile:

Anyway, the point is yes hardware does boost your performance (a little), but IMO unless you have money to spare it's unneccesary, and by all means anyone can use what they want, hell, if OP wants to play with a flight stick who's to say he would do bad?

i kinda prefer my Razer Mamba - 6400 DPI twin sesors with 5 customizable DPI levels, everything on the mice is programmable (including liftoff range or silly stuff like full color range of backlight), wired/wireless function and so on and so on

:) its like comparing nice utility of PZIV to the E-75 :)

OK, one in a million could play well with a thumbstick but it's a clumsy mechanism that will just hamper your average gamer, compared to opponents with keyboards and mice.

There is no way that could pull out of cover, fire off a precisely aimed snap shot and pull back into cover in the same way that a mouse wielding player could.

By all means, play with a game controller if you want. Play for fun, sure. I'd rather you weren't on my team though.

Thank you!

one - your idea is bad
two - leave commercials to the TV
three - promoting BAD gameplay wont get you any consideration in this community
four - trying to "get the hell out" shoutdown the people that disagree with this idea wont work :)
five - if you want to do inferior control setup, just promote the joystick with twin throttles :)
six - did i mention this is a bad idea ? well its worth saying it again ...

I'd like to quote SerB for you: "Do not like random teams? Than DO NOT play random battles!"

I guess you've skipped the topic opener, because you are spamming this thread with useless, off-topic replies.
