I play both Blitz and PC. I enjoy them both and they each function as a nice break from the other.

I used to play both, but have more or less stopped playing Blitz now; the final thing was the in-game economy was broken on Blitz a couple of patches ago, making progression far too slow (even with a prem account).
 

PC was still better than Blitz though, even before they broke Blitz; PC has much more variety - partly because of the maps (believe it or not, the Blitz maps are worse); the PC version is less money-grubbing (again, believe it or not); having arty does make the PC version more interesting, even if you don't play it.

If Blitz would accept gift cards as they do on PC, I'd put some money into it. Why, as someone above said, is the 10/10 package cheaper on Blitz?

I just hate the fact you have to regrind everything.

I dabbled in the PS4 version for a few days and i just couldnt get use to the controls of it. I even thought about getting a Keyboard mouse combo for my Ps4 then i was like wait i spent all this money to get prem tanks and stuff on PC why leave it and regrind anything. The things Ps4 or console has over Pc is Different maps,Night time battles, weather and a lil better graphics IMO. But most the the tanks we have on PC arent in console and seems like there hasnt been the nerfs to some tanks WTE100 is still there and un nerfed i believe.  Also PIIJ is there too.

The controls on blitz are just unplayable for me. The only cool thing was how different some tanks were to their wot counterparts.

Same here. Blitz has its own GUI advantages too, but I prefer PC version.

Blitz is actually pretty good, especially for a tablet game.  PC is waaay better.  Much more control and higher learning curve.

 

 

Agree, for a tablet of phone game it is really very good....however I like the PC for the immersion (also I just cannot manipulate the controls very well on my iPad).  I've not played console, but have seen it played and it seems a bit cartoonish to me.


 

Just my opinion though...I could certainly see where folks would disagree.

There's something to be said for that...good point.

This is kind of a tough question in some regards. Although, in my opinion, Blitz is the worst of them by far(not saying it's bad, but just what I've seen, it's kind of low quality. But this is coming from someone who primarily plays games on pc, and is used to good graphics and tons of content) 

 

I would probably rank from 1st to worst: 1. PC, 2. Console(PS4/XBox), 3. Blitz. Yet PC and Console both have features that are redeeming and detracting. PC has better graphics, sound, and much more content, but Console in my opinion has a little more fluid control. Even though the PC version has much more precise aiming, the console controls just feel smoother, and I like the way it feels. 

 

PC version has the addition of mods, which makes it so you can cater your game to the way you want it(different graphics for certain things, different functions that aid you such as different aiming reticles, etc.) 

 

The next thing though is kind of something that kind of makes or breaks the game for many people.

PC- Different machines have different hardware. Some people may be playing on a $400 regular old desktop or laptop with on-board graphics cards or just your cheap, run-of-the-mill basic graphics cards, whereas some people are playing on top-of the-line gaming machines that cost them anywhere between $2000 to $5000 depending on what they can afford, So, some people are playing on higher ground than others in that field. However, seeing as this is a possibility, some can improve their game by getting a better comp so they can raise their fps, which might improve their performance.

Console- Basically every PS4 and every XBox One have the same hardware, not including the hard drives. So, in that aspect, everyone is pretty much on equal footing there. The only way to improve your performance, is to actually learn better gameplay. 

 

So, in my mind, PC and Console has their pros and cons, and an argument can be made that they are fairly equal in which one is better. But, for me personally, I prefer the PC version.

 

P.S. Sorry for the Blitz players. I do not mean to put down the game, it's just not on my radar of awesome games. But, that is just me, personally.

Remember, Blitz may not have AMAZING graphics, but lets be real, the RNG in pc gaming for wot is insane. BUT, pc has one thing console and blitz players cant even dream about, physics. Oh yeah, I have Tiger 2 in blitz, had the type 95 top on pc, but it ran like crap so I stopped, and I have the BDR, AT2, AMX ELC, TOG, and others on console. 50 battles on pc, 1700 on blitz, and 1300 on console. I am no super unicum, but hey, I have some skill.

I like them both equally, but overall I would have to say blitz because +1/-1 matchmaking, and also the matchmaker takes WAY too long for me on PC for some reason.

I like Blitz better for lots of reasons, but the two biggest ones are

 

- much much less RNG with shots.  Aim time and spotting still work the same way as PC, but the aiming reticle just feels so much more accurate

- more viable tanks and easier to change tiers when one tier is bad (crews are universal)

- maps are much better and so is rotation.  Really there are only two maps in Blitz I don't like, but it isn't as painful with five minute matches.  Also there is a new map every three months

- a losing streak in PC can be really painful.  Sitting through three entire games or having absolutely no chance is really annoying in either game, but it is much worse when you have to spend three times as much time to recoup those losses.

- I like being able to sit back and put my feet up

 

 

so with that said why do I even play the PC game?  It still is a lot of fun.  I enjoy being part of a team and when PC teams work right, the game is ultra addictive.  It is rewarding to level up your crews.  If only you could put them in old tanks that you already elited.  Blitz forum is full of complaints of bad players just like this one, but the truth is that both games have bads but generally you don't see as much red line camping in Blitz.  I don't know what it is, but somehow it just seems that the proportion of useless teammates is worse here, and that is very frustrating in a team based game.  I think that this can best be summed up in one way:  tinfoil ppl vs IDGAF ppl.  Here there are so many people who legitimately believe that the game is rigged against them.  It's really kind of weird, and I've heard some off the wall stuff.  Blitz's equivalent is the perennial yoloer or serial AFKer.  Nobody understands those people but they seem to know that they're a detriment rather than pointing fingers at everyone else.

 

All in all I like both games and I hope to keep tanking with all youse for years to come.

He should have waited until the Obj 252 got released instead of posting his poll in March of 2016.

I have played blitz on ios and PC on a Windows, and I prefer PC because of the larger choice of tanks, plus I find it easier to control with the keyboard instead of fingers.
