Tier 10 battles are nonetheless more profitable it seems.

So, um, KRZYB00P, morbid curiosity here...  Would it be in poor taste OR violating EULA or Forum rules if I were to ask exactly WHY they decided to massively nerf the bond economy for Frontline, other than to be massive [edited]?  Asking for a friend...

really, instead of screwing with the bonds, why don't you fix the optimization of the game mode, i have i9 7700k and a gtx 1080 TI and i get 30 fps , this is not my pc problem

I was playing this mode for the bonds, so this sucks.

Think you mean i7-7700k or a i9 7900k but all in all we get the picture  both great cpu's I would suggest checking and up dating all driver's  and check and set CPU,gpu and monitor settings . There not plug and play  just a suggestion

First, there is no such CPU as an I9 7700k.  Second, I have an I5 3570k and a 1080 and get over 100 FPS.  All I can suggest is to fix your computer.  

 

Third, yeah... it is annoying that they are nerfing bond income, but the people who work with game economy have nothing to do with the people who work on game optimization.  What you are saying is like expecting your mechanic to design a new cabin for your car,  he has no idea how to do that because it's not his job.

I'm playing on a laptop with a gtx 965 and have no noticeable fps issues on Frontline.  Playing on the same settings I use for normal modes; med-high.

Since the average game of Frontline lasts longer it can be argued that you can still farm the begesus out of bonds. Even more-so if you rank up to G-Money (General). I can assure you that there will be more changes to our game since this new mode is being watched pretty intensely by the Dev team. 

 

Sorry to hear that you are having some FPS issues. The Dev team is also aware of this, and I can recommend turning off some HUD features to try and help. 30 V 30 on a huge map is hard to prepare for considering the amount of PC stuff you can slap together. 

 

Anyone have any other helpful tips that are not potato related?

​My system is a FX-6300 x6 , 16 gig ram with a GT-710 /NVidia on a gigabyte 78LMT-usb3 main board and get 30 - 40 fps all day . SD visuals  with some improved adjustments , just under Medium settings on Frontline . ATA wire internet .  Could certainly improve the fps by just changing the G-card .  So not your pc / game settings issue Ortinoth  ?

 

As far as the econ for Frontline , ya > a bit expensive  in the tank R&R department .

These are massive drops in bonds, so like many others here, not going to waste my time on Front Line.  Way to go on pulling the rug out from under players.  So I guess not much has changed between CA and the TX relocation.

Why the drop in bonds? Are you really that afraid people might ACTUALLY start having some? :facepalm:

Yeah this is a slap in the face, it's already hard enough to earn a profit with the dumb FL tanks and now this? Sad.

Bring back down votes. 

 

As a non-clan player who rarely plays tier 10's, the bond rewards were a nice goal to shoot for.  You actually have to work for them.  Not like they're just giving them away.  It's a fun mode, but with this, the FPS issues and the # of hours it will take to unlock the camos; I'm strongly reconsidering playing it now.

@windyozer

Are the FL tanks the only Tier 8's that you have? I can tell you that there is waaaaaayyyyy more fun to be had with the following Tanks that are for sale right now. 

Chrysler GF

FV4202

112

Not trying to go all Used tank Emporium but Those Tanks are making me smile every-time I Frontline. 

 

@TornadoADV

I haven't even been able to get a badge for any bonds mostly cause there isn't one for blocking all the damage. Which is banana's since that's how your team is able to push. There are more changes to come with this mode which could include more badges which makes the reduction make a little sense. I am not a Developer but from my hardcore gaming past I can see an overall pattern of Wargaming titles never staying the same forever.

 

Most importantly is that there is a new fun mode that pits all the Tier 8 tanks together.  

 

What Tanks do you like to take into Frontline?

I've been using it for xp on the Pantera.  When its tied up I'll usually snag either Scorp G or mutz.  Lowes not terrible if its early in the frontlines.

This would be great.  Y'all should lead with this.  It'd clear up a lot of the negative reactions.

Honestly, I've been enjoying the new Italian tanks the most in this mode (P.44 Pantera and Progetto).
