Hello everyone!

 

I am a bit confused, so I just noticed today that World of Tanks Blitz is on the Steam store (for those that don't know Blitz is the Android and iOS version of World of Tanks, I wouldn't call it a port really as it seems to have been made more or less from the ground up).

 

When people asked Wargaming why Blitz account is separate from normal World of Tanks and why they did not just port World of Tanks to mobile devices and make it cross-platform, they said it was because that would be unfair to players playing on mobile devices.

 

Low and behold, now they have gone full circle and brought the mobile version of World of Tanks, Blitz, to PC!!!! So they have created Blitz to have a mobile version of WoT and then now ported Blitz to PC and made it cross platform so you can play with mobile devices against PC gamers on WoT Blitz.

 

Can someone explain this to me... What is Wargaming doing lol....

Last time I heard a story about WoT Blitz I'm sure it said that WG where shutting it all down.

Blitz has been on PC through the Windows 10 store for a while now. Supposedly PC players are kept separate from mobile device players.

On the Steam store it says specifically "cross platform"

That could just mean your garage is available on both platforms. 

 

Although I heard that mobile and PC can platoon together but I would assume that works like fail platooning in WoT.
