I was like:

'Another event, nothing for me...'

'Wait, it is in the netherlands! :smile:'

'It is in Utrecht! :great: '  (only a few minutes driving)

 

But than:

'crap, it is world of tanks 360... :facepalm:'

Is the second event specific for Xbox 360?

Or will there be something for PC users aswell?

 

Thanks!

Don't complain and go.

I bet most of people will be PC players.

 

If I would be there in proximity I would go.

 

BTW. Utrecht is a very nice city. I liked it a lot when been there.

Question:

 

I'm pretty new to the game, and I apologize in advance if someone already stated this topic, but I feel it is perfect time to speak about this (again). Since WOT is spreading it's machines widely and two major realms are USA and EU, the question arises itself. Why there is client made for XBOX already and there is no client for Apple/Mac users? I'm playing from EU, but, I can bet that pretty much people in States uses iMacs and MacBooks. We play this game using various "windows wrappers" such is Wine for me, it works terrible on the lowest configuration but it works and I play it because I do not have choice.

 

Question : Is there any possibility to fit the game client for OS X ? If yes, when ?

 

To others : Please do not reply with stupid and childish words such are "buy PC" - "mac is not for games" etc. please. Because there are some people who does their work on Apple machines, and playing games is secondary thing, usually in relax times.

 

Thanks, Misa_

The event is 360 themed so you can expect to see mainly things for it. I'm not sure if we will have PC stuff (codes etc) but I doubt it.

The main reason why there is no mac version is because the market for mac games is small. It's there, but it's small. This counts for all developers who are making games, why would you invest more time in porting your game when you dont know how good its gonna sell?

 

Its easier to build a game for windows because developers can use DirectX(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DirectX) or OpenGL(windows,linux and mac). Consoles don't have hardware differences so you will only have to write your game once.

 

And since its not cheap to develop games here is the consideration:

 

1. Cost of development vs. "Is it gonna sell?" ( e.g. in this case the game is for free but think of the amount of users that will buy gold )

2. Would we rather build a total port of our game or are we gonna add more features to our existing game?

3. Linux vs Mac - Linux is the os of the future. Better invest in that one?

 

So to make a long story short. That's why are not so many mac games.

 

Hopes this answers your question :)
