What kind of device do you use to play SWC?

Post#1 » Mon May 13, 2019 12:57 am

I am in the market for a new mobile device as my LG tablet took a swim to the bottom of the lake a couple of weekends ago. :(

I still have my PC which I use an emulator and my LG phone, but when I play on my phone I can't hit the broad side of a barn with Kessen. The screen is tiny and even with my stylus I lose about 35% accuracy...which sucks.

So guys/gals list what mobile device you use to currently play the game, along with pros and cons of each device, and price range of the device. Ideally I would like to stay under 200 bucks as a budget.

Thanks...and I hope you guys/gals can help me make a wise choice on a new mobile device in the coming weeks.

Ghostie - I use iOS Game Devices exclusively on all 3 of my accounts (1 iPhone 8, 2 iPad Pros). I also have a Mac PC but I don't have the game loaded there.

iOS has historically had the least amount of game issues, followed by Android, followed in a far distant third Facebook Game Room on a PC.

Given your "budget" of $200 or Less you can check out "Used" or 'Refurbished" Tablets (the larger the screen the better), perhaps iOS Game Devices like a iPad, or iPad Mini 4, etc, but in reality you will most likely go with some Android Product which I am not qualified to answer.

Hope you have success in finding your next gaming device...

I play on several old Samsung devices (Galaxy S8+, Tab S2, Note 4) and one iPad Pro. The Samsung devices are all horribly slow... where the iPad is amazing. I also have Gameroom installed on my PC but it takes up 100% of my CPU all the time and it seems to miss about 1 in 5 clicks so it's pretty much useless.

I am curious as to how well the game plays on the new Samsung Galaxy S10? I hear it has 6GB of ram. Does anyone play on this?

If I am at home, I use my PC and play through FB Gameroom. My PC is a few old but powerful, Fx-6300 - 8 Gb ram DDR3 1866Mhz - Geforce GTX 960 4GB Vram GDDR 5 - etc ...
Outside the house, I use my LG G5 ..., it's a cell phone from 2016, but with its Snapdragon 820 - 4Gb RAM - Adreno 530 GPU, the game works well for me.

The latest generation of iPad got a new processor that makes the game run very smoothly. It's $250, but I highly recommend it. I also have an older iPad air, and the lag between barracks is noticeable.

I use iPhone X on my main account and FaceBook gameroom on a laptop for my secondary account. For the former, I like the simplicity of recording replays/SW attacks but I do like the generally "wider" feel that the latter has. I find that FaceBook gameroom can be buggy more frequently though.
