FIrst!

 

I really like Front Lines but don't want it ALL the time.  Some kind of regular schedule, or a shortened daily time period - cuz I need to grind.

 

I DID buy the new Cent, in part, because of Front Lines where normally I might have waited or passed.  I am hoping they put the other British tank out this week (heavy) because Daddy want dat too!

 

 

PS - We were in a battle together last night and I enjoyed your comments to our brain dead teammates.  FYI - that is my MM 70-80% of the time without any tinfoil.

I'm done with grinding and random battles. When there's no FL I won't play.

It's a great game mode. Rotate the tiers each week or weekend for some variety until they get a new map or two.

 

If the player base increases to support the  mode, then make it daily.

It’s a fun break from randoms, the range of the maps is dynamic and causes different play styles. They need to fix spawn C, most of the time it is just damage farming and spawn camping.

I think it's a great addition to the game, obviously bugs need to fixed, and balance needs adjustment; however, it's been a fun week.

 

Tier 8 premiums are big $ilver makers in Front Line.  If you make FL for tier 10, it'll be extra expensive and people will quit playing it after they loose 200K or more per game.

 

I have a very few lines left to grind, so I can afford to take time to make $ilver.  Not sure if I would feel the same if I didn't have any tier 10s.

 

I already have a bunch of premiums, including the most of the good ones.  I passed on Centurion, he was making fun of my friend and his wife.

Its a fine game mode but i feel like i'm worthless for the most part in the out-come of the match and thats even when i'm general rank. I think the biggest reason people like this mode is its one tier, so i'm wondering how this could effect the other game modes and balance of tanks in the future.

given the state of T8 MM in the random queue it has been a breath of fresh air. (the rewards are nice too)

- I bought 2 tier 8 premium tanks only for FL

- I like it is tier 8 only (best tier imho)

- I can't even play random battles now...

- My friends will stop playing with me when FL is over...

I can't say I will play less random battles when it's gone,but for now it's pretty much all I'm doing. Hard to pass up all the credits, and I really enjoy knowing the map before hand.

The map is a nice change from corridors of the random matches.

I hope WG notices that maps without tight corridors can work. I am not a scout/light player so I do not know if lights like it, but it is great fun for normal (Not Super) heavies and mediums and TD's.

They need to keep the economy stable, or they will lose players if they lose credits.

I have been having all kinds of fun playing this mode. It is espically fun in a platoon. I have been using it for credit grinding and for exp on bad grind tanks. I voted for it not be tier only in tier 8 as I would like to see tier 6 and a couple others have a frontline showing. It would help me finish a ton of grinds quickly. Then again I am a much newer player than most of you here. Overall I am having a blast playing this.

I'm playing Frontline with the rental tanks, so I can't say I'm having much impact on the game, especially when up against the more overpowered death incarnates. I'm enjoying it. It is good that it is not clan orientated. Not every player wants to be in a clan and it makes a change to be able to play something other than random games, even for a non clan player!

 

I think you have to keep a sense of proportion though. As we all know familiarity breeds contempt and players, as we have seen with random games,  get fed up with the same old, same old. If WG make it a regular feature, that is sufficient incentive for me to go up the tiers and grind a few suitable vehicles. There are times when an option to get a TD would be helpful in certain situations.

 

For me I am usually fighting two enemies, namely enemy tanks and the lag monster! So struggling for the duration of a battle can be a frustrating when you have difficulty controlling the tank. I guess you have the option not to reenter the battle, I assume you would not be penalized for that, but I do rejoin the fray in the hope the lag monster goes away. 

 

Frontline as a permanent feature of the game gets my vote.

 

Have fun, with a welcome change from random games.

 

Guffy.

I agree with running it in cycles, and LOVE the mode.  I think they should have 3 tier levels.  Have Tier 6, 8, and 10 FL's to get new and old players involved.  Opening Tier 6 would mean easier access for non-premium players, and re-opening tier 10 would take the heat off Tier 8 Pub MM.....

Would you feel the same about Frontlines if WarGaming displayed stats in the API.

I did see you!  :honoring:  You were rocking it out!

Honestly I just can't figure out why everyone in "A" on defense would just camp there and not advance up to the North!  :facepalm:  You don't have to be great to play the game - just willing to hit "W" and do your best !! :great:

Too late to add - BUT personally I would not care. Stats are not my gaming goal at all.

Frontline is just a fancy assault mode with double the total players.  It's a big of a grind to get the spacebucks (bonds) but it could be worse.  Unlike other alternate mods, you make mad monies in this one if you make your shots count, limit your total repairs, and run premium tanks + boosters.  I've been pulling 500k/game with boosters so it's bonkers amounts of money.

Twice I've had my game CTD at the end of the battle once with 30 seconds left, once in overtime. I get no XP and no credits, still get charged for ammo and repairs, and waste a half an hour for nothing. I'm done with the mode.
