You fail at computer.

Come back when you know the difference between a Nehalem CPU and an ARM A5. In the meantime, borrow your mom's old Yugo and try winning Formula 1 races in it.

I can't even imagine trying to play this game on an iPod touch.  How could you possibly see enough on that little screen to do anything but die painfully?

Stick to Words with Friends.

I think this game could be like on the I pad if connected to the key-board and a mouse so my friends could play it on their i pads.

The technology is already there to be able to play the PC version of this game on a tablet.  Processors for tablets are continually advancing because most of the general public are no longer using their desktop computers and laptops.  PC gamers and business keep desktop computers alive but the masses see desktop computers as land line telephones.

Tablets are no longer the future of home computers, that future is now.  Bluetooth mice and keyboards have existed for a while and are also continually advancing.

The only big draw back I see playing a PC game on a tablet is screen size.  I don't see too many people wanting to carry around a 27 inch tablet.

I saw a few videos of WOT:Blitz, the touch screen controls look horrible.  WG may want to check out mobile device game developers to see how it's done.

The batteries are still a hassle though. That, and heat.

 

Now, you can manage the heat with lower clockspeeds, which is why mobile devices are less powerful than desktops, and that also aids power consumption, but at the end of the day, performance is sacrificed to keep from draining the battery in 12 minutes and burning your hand in the process.

 

Show me a tablet (or even a laptop) that can hold 60 FPS and 100% CPU load for 8-12 hours with no charger and without melting and I might agree with you. Until then, you're optimistic. Yes, the common person to whom computers are nothing more than Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and porn are adopting tablets, but those people could also do everything they need to on a Pentium II, so the tablet is the first computer-related tech advance in 20 years that actually affects them. For actual gamers, tablets won't take over until they perform as well as desktops, and that day isn't here yet.

 

Also, the small screen would kill the tech for certain types of games (WoT included) anyways, rendering it all moot.
