Has anybody done this?

 

  • The graphics look so much better as its a known hardware base and doesnt have to suffer due to russian coal powered pc's needing to be kept happy. 
  • Ive been told I can still use a keyboard and mouse
  • i suppose no mods are available so less salty i suppose.

 

So several reasons to do so, but the thought of grinding again makes me feel ill, worth the pain at all?

 

I dont really play the game to progress these days, just to unwind really...i think im actually playing less as well (still too much though)

 

Added benefit of playing games with my son again as he thinks WoT is sh1t3

I don't know about the mods side, I know that xbox has some mods (though not to the extent PC does as of yet) id assume PS is similar

you *can*use you mice and keyboard, but last I read it was only certain keyboard and mice, your specific ones may not work.. you'd have to check that yourself however


 

if anything, id buy your son an xbox 1, as that way, you can keep your PC, and still "crossplay" with them on some upcoming games

newer games are utilising that, allowing PC and xbox to play in the game games, so it might be better for you?

you'd get to keep your current mice and keyboard, the functionality of a PC, and your son still gets their console


 

just my 2 cents

thanks :)

 

He sold his xbox one some time ago as all of his friends only play ps4.  But that's good to know.

 

I could try my kbrd/m on his ps4 at the weekend and start an account i suppose to see if it all works.

Sure it looks better, but it plays and feels way different. No mods needed tbh, as you have tracers when you are not spotted. So you will take blind fire constantly. I found some aspects of the console version to be a tad more annoying to stick to it....even tho it looks better in some areas.

PC WoT is getting HD maps soon so PC graphics should be equal if not better.

 

Also there are stuff like this:

 

- old arty

- prenerf 750 alpha TDs, I.E 850 alpha

- WT E100 with 6 shell clip (both Grille AND WT are there)

- 183s with prenerf HESH pen

- shitton of Patriot-like skins, much more than PC WoT

- has the anime tanks (edelweiss and nameless) no matter what region, IIRC

- 5x platoons (have gun with 5x WT E100, 5x 183 or 5x arty...)

Wow. Too bad I don't like consoles. Sounds like a blast.

Well they do follow up on PC balances at times. But it took them over a year to split the KV-85 and make the T18 an SPG etc. So they are in no rush to change things. So if you miss an old tank, or something they nerfed on PC. Chances are console still has it for a long time to come. As there are some aspects, like alpha damage changes etc they don't bother with. As the core mechanics of their game is not 100% the same, like the fact you see tracers from un-spotted tanks etc. So thus.. they deem some balance changes pointless vs PC, and leave it be.
