- It is the assumption that the game will run much better in PCs, on account of resources available. That there may be less crashing, run faster, shorter loading times, better connection speed. All of these quite desirable, and even more so with people with less-than-top-of-the-line mobile devices. People familiar with the Steam platform (and gaming in general) are much more likely to have dramatically better PCs than tablets or mobile phones, after all. Certainly I'd love to transition from my old and slow device to PC for this reason. The feeling of 'getting a lesser experience/product' is a big turn-off for some.
I have to disagree.
1. Modern PCs cost much more than a modern mobile device, so chances majority of players have a Top PC and a crap-o tablet/phone are quite opposite.
2. Except for tons of bugs I personally face zero issues with ether lags or connectivity. Crashes? Never heard of, and I play every spare minute of my workday, which is a LOT... What else, Lags? Slow login? 5/7 seconds time ain't that much, my friend. And I'm not a golddigger, I own 200$ Meizu 6 China phone & 6 y.old Nexus 10. I'm terribly sorry if it's not so bright for you guys, might be my pure luck.
3. Steam itself is quite a chubby software.
4. Devs insist on the fact that the game, it's future content and it's updates should be a perfect match across all platforms. If you think that making a Purchase-to-play instead of f2p new Adventure content on a mobile platform is some kinda problematic... I don't.
5. I partly agree on your point reg. mobile data... But the thing is - you don't have to be "Constantly connected".
I know your pain. For e.g. there's no decent network cover in Moscow Underground, and I spend 2h every working day inside. I have to pause the game right before I win the scenario, and wait till I get online again to get the gold... and my other tablet is able to use wifi only, so I have to be indoors... But wait for it... wait a minute... not only you will have to be indoors when playing on a PC, you won't even have a chance to move anywhere else. So... no benefits for a PC version again, from my point of view.
6. Resolution preffs are debatable, since nowdays mobile phones have a tendancy for larger screen options, and tablets are a perfect choice already.
7. "Sitting in front of a large screen" - Yeah, right... I'd rather save my neck and a$$ by changing poses. I'd play a little right before bed time next to my sleeping wife, or play even during a bath... So, again, personally... PC version sounds like a step back. =))
p.s. ThIs should be in the other PA PC Release thread, really.
