Here's again a suggestion that will probably be ignored.

The wowp app on my phone is actually pretty useless, don't know why i should ever need to use it.

But here's the thing, why don't you guys make this app so it could be used as in game rearviewmirror.
Would be a great way to check your six (definitely in my case) and a great way to promote your app.
hell i even want to pay for an app with that function.

I am not familiar with this app but good luck!  I am familiar with this game and I can't, off the top of my head, recollect any suggestions taken seriously by this team of devs.

what a great idea!     it doesn't have to replace the current free app...  i would pay for a separate rear view app that links simultaneously to my battle screen

Or they could just give us back our bottom left target window that was working perfectly fine for years and no one ever whined about or complained about it.

 

*Technically, I would imagine there'd be a sync/lag issue between what you see on your computer and what your phone would display, unless the phone was tethered, or in some way could be made into a usb/wireless display.  Plus, we're talking about Persha developing it?  lol

the target window was "like cheating" and "cluttered the interface."

The unofficial, opinion of Priolia.

When your change makes no sense, you make up lame excuses like that.

yes, but this requires more resources from your pc, while projecting rearviewmirror on a different device only requires coordinates from the server and doesn't create any extra load on your pc.
As wowp still is a 32-bit application (sigh), resources are very limited for the application.

In theory, if your mobile device is ocnnected to the same networl as your pc and the mobile device meets a couple of requirements (certain type cpu, certain amount of ram, certain minimal OS), it should be able to work as rearviewmirror, without creating extra load on your current system.
