   Recently i came back to World of Tanks because i got a computer that can run it. But this computer happens to be a Mac. I have done a little bit of reading and i see stuff like "Mac will not run the Wrapper" for the game. I am not exactly sure what that means, but what i need to know is if i can still play the game on my Mac.

No they're making it exclusively for PC now, MAC users aren't the best patrons to have for business...of coarse it will work on a mac, brand x, or any other comp you want to use.

Yes it will "run" on a Mac, but not macOS.

why would you waste your time posting a completely unnecessary comment? nobody cares about your opinion...

 

OP: Yes it will run, it maintains Mac OS compatibility

It's all about priorities.

 

MacOS is a pain to develop for in terms of gaming that demand consistently high performance from the hardware, so it's generally not worth it. Likewise, people usually don't buy Apple products for gaming, so put one and two together, and it's altogether a net loss for developer and user.

The only reason to post negative comments about a brand is because you're jealous that you don't have said brand. This applies to more than just computers.

 

As to the misinformation, those "Mac" computers are very similar hardware components to your fancy Windows machines, they just have a different operating system. So, yes, they can easily run World of Tanks in any fashion via BootCamp, and quite possibly via the MacWrapper when it gets updated. WarGaming has Mac customers now, and wouldn't want to lose them over something as trivial as updating a small piece of software to maintain compatibility.

 

I run MacOS as my daily work system, but also Windows 10 as my gaming platform, both on the same hardware!

Yeah... See, you tell us that they are the same aside from  the OS, which I agree with. Though I can build a PC that will do everything a Mac can do, and more, for half the price.

 

My only jealousy for Apple is how well they can.. Let's say tax the simple. They have over priced garbage that hipsters and simple people gobble up just so they can say they have a Mac. And that is impressive, they could release the original iPhone tomorrow with an R sticker on it. And I mean the exact same phone from back in the day with simply a little R sticker, and people would be lined up outside Apple stores Monday willing to pay 1000 bucks for it. They would call it the iPhone Retro or something.

 

And to me that is pure genius, it's hard to beat those mono clicking no right click havin simpletons on that front.

 

As for the OS, Macs lean toward OpenGL, a dated system that no one cares for now days, which is why we see so few games on Macs. Sadly they can't move to DirectX without paying to license it, and Apple doesn't want to, would rather screw over customers more.

The wrapper works for the current version of the game.  With 1.0 the situation seems to be nobody knows.

 

If you can set up a boot to Windows option I think you will be good.

I'm sorry, but what did I do to get your panties in such a bunch?

If you don't want to spend the money, then don't. The cost and the packaging has nothing to do with this thread, which was simply about whether or not World of Tanks 1.0 will run as it does now via the MacWrapper - to which, I can only hope it does. But to have such hatred for something that absolutely doesn't affect your life in any way seems to indicate something about that person.

 

Again, as I stated, the anger seems to be more about jealousy than anything else, because really, why be mad at all?

The only reason i have a Mac is because i just switched from an 8 year old PC, and my parent is doing Job Searches and Stuff. Gaming is not why i bought it, its a extra time thing. 

 

So it looks like the final answer might be yes to it running on Mac.
