hey there,

 

wondering what devices you use to play this game. I play it on a laptop with the keyboard but it appears that other players have an advantage on quick tanks as they maneuver quicker than I can with the keyboard. Is there any USB device which I could use to control the game better?

 

thank you,

Wolfgang

Buy a gaming mouse and fiddle around in the setting. Keep your right click free so you can use it to look around, zoom with the scroll wheel.

Experience from people who tried gamepad is not that good.

Yes, you can use PS3 controller. Google how to connect that.

If the control for movement can be mapped to a trackball that would be the ultimate.

afaik you need one that is designed for windoze. they usually say if they can be used for windows or not. but if the PS3 contoller has a USB plug it probably can.

my question is, how good or how high is the winrate of those using I-pad and phone for this game?

you'll notice that in the tournaments/competitions they are all using iPads, phones, or tablets of some sort. younger players can control tanks much faster and easier with them because of their dexterity.

Very good. Most of YouTuber use an IPad or phone. As was the players on Twister cup teams.

PC has some advantage, but don't think mobile players don't have an edge too.

I haven't a hope in hades of playing on a phone. But I want to play on the PC anyway. I have a large screen monitor with the sound thru an amp and hifi speakers. It's a far better experience and the sound is awesome.

do they win the tournament? i asked a lot of high win rate players and they said they are using pc,,,,, and i saw a player ramming everything and can't do a good flank attack and i suspected they are using i-pad because they can't shot while flanking and circling the enemy.

Have you seen YouTube replays? Especially their own, not someone's else? If their mini map's are on top then they play on mobile phone or iPad. Also watch Twister Cup Qualifiers stream. They have to play on Mobile. This year streamers are Amaunet and Rolling Swarm. Also Fugit for the Challengers series.

I'm pretty sure that that's because tournaments are limited to mobile players

Quite right, its not through choice.

 

All major tournaments are mobile device only, so the top players either have to get good on mobile device or not bother.

 

Not sure why this is the case though, i dont think either control method is far more OP than the other. Both have their advantages. At the end of the day though, good players are good players. You get them on high-end PC's or dogs of cheap phones.
