I wonder if this will prompt ex-controller players into buying a Switch.

Will they be in a separate queue?

Or do they play in the PC queue?

 

So, they play with the mobile crowd? 

 

I would have expected the two thumbs mobile players not to be together with switch players, when they turn same control on.

I would totally buy a Nintendo Switch just for playing WoTB. However, not being use to those controls, and a lack of knowledge of Nintendo's, I would like to see a guide first on how to use the controls for aiming.

 

Edit: Additional question, will Nintendo players be part of or excluded from tournaments that are for mobile players only?

 

Yeehaw,

Switch players get into PC queue if they disable same control type.

Switch players are equal to mobile ones in tournaments.

Fascinating.

 

PC banned from tourney not for control mode but prevalence of shenanigans?

 

Got my minions on this.

 

For the record, the Switch people should be in the PC MM. However, it is worth it for what this means for the PC folks.

An unintended consequence of this is how many kids just had their Switches "borrowed" by their parent?

"For the record, the Switch people should be in the PC MM"
based on what ?

scared ?

small screen (smaller than any tablet and even of some phone), not touch control but instead interface that doesn't seem simple at all (2 hands and may be multiple fingers use required)

or If you have the knowledge we don't (I admit never played with that device) then explain

some of my mates tried and told me that is more difficult than mobile, based on that I would say to you....be decent !

New is good,

more players is good;

for the game, for everybody.

Amen

Where do we report bugs and suggestions for Switch specific issues?

(if on Discord, can you please provide a direct link?)

I never realised that some people carry phones larger than flat screen TVs. Especially the 60”+ variety. Only reason most find it difficult is due to them having to learn new controls.
