considering how we've seen your "pc players" on mobile...you have one leg to stand on. Considering some of your alleged "pc only" players have been playing since 2014, long before pc blitz was available, I'm pretty sure that's both legs gone, so stop the crocodile tears. We have pc players too, with long standing wot pc backgrounds. They, like several people, want to see tournaments on even footing e.g. By Platform - mobile/touch or kb/m. 

 

Simple fact is wargaming will inevitably have some unhappy players, they want to test and measure, so let's see where this goes.

 

What about the players who came directly from PC? Check my facts on this (I'm probably wrong, of course) but didn't PC WOT exist before PC WOTB?

Blitz was the Mobile Title for the Mobile Game offered in the Apple App store in 2014. 

It could be played only on idevices.

Shouldn't you be able to play both platforms then? Say you win in Tournaments and get to go to play offline somewhere. Judging by the past 2 offline tournaments, they were Touch Only. Your "best" team had KBM players, now what? You're going to cripple yourself and have a "worse" team because 2,3,4,5 whatever the amount of players you had were playing on kbm?

I see your point about offline tournaments... which is an interesting point indeed.

Fixed it for you.

 

Meet Bob. Bob played WoT on his PC for a while. Then, Bob saw an announcement that PC controls were coming to blitz. Bob decided to play Blitz. Bob is an excellent player. Bob has joined a good clan and has helped his clan win against some very skilled opponents. Then Bob sees that he cannot play with his team because PC Blitz players cannot play on the same team as mobile players. Bob has never played on a mobile device before. Bob is either forced to play separately from his team, or play for the first time on mobile Blitz and do poorly. Bob's clan wants him to be on his team. So, Bob's clan asks for PC Blitz to not be separated from mobile Blitz for tournaments.

In touch mode only tourneys, I certainly play my phone with my touch only team, but what about my KB/M gentlemen? Will they have to forgoe the tourney to cater to the touch-only faction of my clan?

 

If I play the KB/M tourney on my PC, whose control scheme I'm more familiar with anyways, coming from the original WoT, what will my touch screen team do if they're short a player? As was stated, they're at the same time.

 

Not to mention that you're stretching my rather small tourney player pool pretty thin, as we're about 70% touch, 30% KB/M. We might miss some tourneys due to not meeting registration minimums, which I would hate to see happen, as these are pretty fun to do with my team.

 

I'd also rather not juggle two teams at once, but with this split I may have to, in order to be inclusive to both factions.

If that's the case then that will divide clans.

 

501's strongest team has people that play on KBM and our caller, a damn good one at that is a KBM player. I really hope this isn't how things will be from now on

 

 

Break out that old device and get back on it. Im pretty sure most of them started on a mobile device. I know you did. If your kbm player can't keep up or play just a personal problem WG doesn't have to cater to. Wouldn't be a first.

We should split phone and tablet tourneys. Tablet players enjoy an advantage that phone players don't get, like better performance and easier aiming. Plus, the screens are bigger so it raises your awareness more. I have played all 3 platforms, and let me tell ya, phone is the worst way to play. Buttons are too small.

 

Sounds like you been hanging around Titan with all that salt. If there isn't any clear advantage between the two then you wouldn't mind playing mobile and participating with your clan regardless of platform. Don't have mobile device? Why would you care if they are giving you your own tourney and you can stomp all the other PC players. Funny how WG makes any sort of decision and everybody flames at it. Do like everybody else and just deal with it. 

 

Fyi I don't like tablets cause I don't feel like breaking it out in the places I play. I rek everybody on an iPhone 4

Thank You CC for the upcoming Tournaments. I love to see them cry about simple data collection 

And also the separation of the two Platforms. Give it to them where it hurts 

I've been playing Kbm, and all it does is make me want to switch from Blitz to WOT. Which may not be a bad idea but

As one of the Top Contributers to this Game, seems like a bad idea to refocus my spending to a different Platform. I'll stick around here to keep the forum folks happy. What would they do without my logic

 

Fixed it.

Looks like Bobs career in Blitz will be run short when he wins a tournament and goes to play offline where it's Touch only. :popcorn:

Look, I can play on any device and be comfortable in any of them. Some of my mates (and I know other clans are dealing with a similar issue) don't have the same luxury. Some of them have either really bad equipment or haven't touched a mobile device to play blitz in ages. I just don't like that people will have to handicap themselves just to stay with their teams.

Trade Bob for Rocket.

Bob needs to spend 6k on Blitz to replace Rocket.

Rockets goes to PC WOT because Blitz is no longer a Mobile Game. 

Who cares. Just one Player.

But Rocket is one of several Spenders that no longer are interested in Blitz.

So who cares. 

Kids left to carry Blitz with mom and dads $20 every couple weeks.

M60 sits idol in garage.

Loyal Players go else where.

PC addition to Blitz was a lure to play WOT.

Wargaming scratches head, why 2 PC based Games?

Shuts down Server.

Let's try to straighten out timelines to at least make sure there's fair representation of fact. The pc addition was December 2015. Queues were not merged until august 2016? So at most there has been ~5Months mixed controls in the past 2+ years? So if your account was created for blitz in say..2014, you played the game on a mobile device for about a year prior to pc blitz availability?

 With this segregation WG is losing a large amount of paying customers. I know many players who pretty much only stick around for tournaments. A horrible business move on their part. Oh well, their loss.
