Hello Tankers,

 

The Sandbox server is now live with Frontline! 30v30 battles with five-man-strong Platoons, all fighting in Tier X vehicles (medium/heavy tanks, TDs and arty) and Tier VIII light tanks. The latter is a temporary restriction caused by the technical nuances of testing. Eventually, the mode will switch to Tier X vehicles of all classes. And there’s no way on earth you could fit them all on a 1 km2 map. So, we’re introducing 9 km2 battlegrounds, divided into nine sectors, with one side playing in attack and the other in defense. Each stage unfolds on a certain territory. In attack, you are fighting for control over it. In defense, you’re tasked with preventing enemies from capturing it.

First impression was confusing  but  after playing it for a while seems to get more into it .. Not to bad  have to play more..1 problem is when u lose an area the timer countdown is way to short for some of those vehicles to get out.. especially when ur stuck in a fight or driving super slow vehicle..

 

When defending site B u can overlook enemies spawn area which means spawn killing...That needs to be fixed..

the new mode on the sandbox needs fixed just a bit it crashed first time i use but managed to join after logging back in.
second it felt like kind of alot with that large of a scale it would be hard to work together with that large of area and so little time also capturing time will be need to upped.
third the respawn timer is about 10 seconds to long.
love the rank system involved


 in addition the new mode feels like it would end up just like rampage mode, due to being aimed more for tier tens if you made it more around 6s and 8s then it would be more likely to be played or if you are gonna put it around tens boost the credit gain tremendously.

feels like the repair circles are just a bit to far after the first zone is captured may need to insert more of them.

I can't log in for some reason even though I'm typing in my correct password on my account, is there something wrong at the moment?

 

Edit: Nevermind, got it fixed

My password and email are not being recognized even though I participated in the previous sandbox tests. I tried to recover my password through the sandbox portal and my email isn't linked to an account so I can't reset my password.

I think this game mode is a waste tbh. I liked domination when they gave us the Domination E5, 140 and 50B.

Don't worry, you're not missing much. Just a ton of chaos and lag and a game mode that has no strategy and doesn't really even make sense.

you should have gotten an email a week or two ago with pw reset instructions, if you didnt get that then you may have to reapply?

Why does the Pz VII have the 150mm of the VK 72.01? it should have it's 128mm. Also, I have no idea what the small orange notification at the bottom left is.

 

Beyond that I think this gamemode is awesome and would love to see it put into RANDOM BATTLES don't shove this into it's own gamemode because then no one will play it
