...and go through the whole OMG mouse & keyboard vs controller arguments again lol.

That a PC can potentially multi-task is a factor, but consoles can be cracked too. I wouldn't say this was an ED specific problem but it is a potential obstacle to cross-platform play sure.Xbox can just about handle 8 in a instance in open play never mind 32 or even 16.
I ment marcros.
Marcros Basicly u can use program's to fly your ship or do things auto. Eg fast pips settings/auto SCB/HS when shields get to a %.
Yeah but when crossplatform is being discussed everyone is suddenly a pvp legend!!Everyone keeps bringing up cheating and imbalance (mouse vs controller vs macros, for example), but how many of you regularly engage in PvP? I was under the impression that most people requesting cross-platform are interested in cooperative gameplay.
So do macros, voice attack and HOTAS put all the PC players who don't use them at such a disadvantage that nobody on PC should even consider playing without them?I like PvP. I'd also love cross platform. But macros voice attack etc will make the console players at an extreme disadvantage. I can take losing a lot, but it would kinda suck knowing you never really had a chance. I'd still be in favour of it though. I guess it would mean Fdev would be compelled to bring those features into the base game....
Absolutely agree.People can bleat on all day about the superiority of keyboard & mouse and why that'll be a terrible thing for cross play with consoles but you know what? I'm an Xbox CMDR and I want cross play with PC and PS4, and I am not worried a jot about other people using certain input devices to ruin my day.
Taking a look at it, Xbox is going to be getting KB+M support "soon", all three platforms are capable of using HOTAS, and all three platforms are capable of using Game Pads. Fact is, many players, many PC CMDRs use Game Pads, many use some form of HOTAS. The point about input devices is gonna be moot.
Put it this way, in the event of cross play happening, I could complain that "X PC player only killed me because he used a KB+M and I can't", but that's simply not going to be true me, nor probably for the vast majority of players out there - I know that a skilled PC player with a Game Pad could beat me while versus my HOTAS.
Sure it might effect the upper echelons of the PvP community a little more than us mere mortals, but is that really SO MUCH that it provides a significant argument against having cross play?
I don't think so, personally.
