I was wondering what device high Winrate competent players are using to play WOTB? I'm using an iPhone 6 and am wondering if the small screen is hindering faster reactions and maneuvers. I know tablets are the way to go, but am curious to know if small screen is a disadvantage to fast paced play?

 

many thanks.

 

P.s Tried to make a poll for device types but never worked after posting :(

I use an iPad Air, but for me it just seems crowded on it for some reason.

iPhone 5c, does the job. Only tablet I own is a Windows surface so that's no use for this game I think.

 

Any of the Android tablets good for WOT? I would sooner jump off a bridge then pay my own money for an apple device (5c is a company phone).

Now I use an iPad mini but I originally started with a iPhone 5, crazy small for my fat fingers. Sometimes now if I'm at work and want to have s quick game I'll use my iPhone 6 (much better than the iPhone 5...)

Thanks guys for your responses. I think I will look for a larger playing surface to try and improve my situational awareness. Mini-map is sooo small of phone.

I tried playing on my phone, but just can't get used to it. Feels so cramped, and I struggled to snipe properly. I think my ipad is around 2 years old now. Plays fine, but drops frames sometimes through smoke effects, etc.

That's a shame because wotb is buttery smooth on my ipad vs. the samsung galaxy tab. IN fact all my android devices don't have very consistent FPS. Probably because it's hard for wargaming to fully optimise the game for so many different processors and graphics chips.

You know u can turn alot of the effects off now, right? my older ipad mini plays it well if most of the effects are off. I honestly don't miss the fake grass and other stuff either :teethhappy:

Lol,

After reading coments....

 

Now I can confidently blame my 5.5 inch screen smartphone for my bad play.

 

Found a scapegoat.

Hah hah :) I just found some speed limitations in lining up weak points on enemy tanks on my phone, and of course my eyes aren't as good as they were when I was in my 30's :P

Switched from an ipad mini to a S5 for a week and am missing the ipad now. The extra space on it really helps in quick aiming,shooting and movement.

 

 

Or i just have fat fingers.Heh

I'm doing fine on 4.3 inch screen.  Tried playing on 5.2 inch phone but headphones placement on that phone makes it uncomfortable.
