That was a great event!  Enjoyed it very much even if my time zone (HST) only allowed me to play for about 1-2 hours on weekdays, after finishing work.

Bring it back, but make it more intuitive, and easier to figure out where you are, what is happening, and what you need to do about it.

yeppers ... me too.  That would be another 'tweak' if possible ... widen the play time for global considerations.

FrontLines was both different and interesting.  The large scale battleground allow you to feel as if you were a part of bigger picture.  The new map had hidden features that were fun to explore while in the heat of battle.  Suggest that WarGaming open the FrontLines to other teir beside Eight.  Would be fun to run Tier 3-7 as single tiered battles.  This would allow the players to explore the different playing styles of the different tanks within a narrow range of a single tier.

The map is too big for Tiers 1-4.  If they rotated it weekly from 5-10 that would give everyone a chance to play their favorite tanks.

No. It will be best as a limited time event with some interesting prizes.

If they make it a permanent game mode people will lose interest on it, just keep releasing it something like every 2 months.

Liked Frontline a lot as well; especially liked the fact that you could win a substantial amount of bonds unlike Tier 10 Ranked Battles where you can play a lot and end with nothing It encourages new and mediocre players (such as myself) to play more because it is enjoyable and you end up with something achievable and worthwhile at the end.

I dont agree because it implemented many aspects that people have asked for in the game for years. Every two months would be better than nothing so yes to that I guess. But WG needs to learn what made it popular and work on the game from that aspect.

 

1. Big rewards for personal play not won/lose pub rewards.

2. Big maps with lots of great terrain to use. Not small restricted maps with one type of terrain.

3. One tier battles.

4. Arty was almost a non factor because of the number of tanks compared to three on smal map. No BS splash damage from "friendly fire".

5. Respawn ( issues with it yes) overall it kept players in the match. Not really any snowball done and over matches. Which shows the point that MM is not the cause of it early player death in single death matches is.

6. Simply fun. Made playing time go by so quickly I lost time playing the game and would look up an go crap got to get off.

Please leave it to the trash bin of historical screw ups that you have made, War Gaming.

Majority of the player population does not in any respect agree with this. You didn't like it ok that's fine. Vast majority of the players did.

Lets put it this way. My money is taking a break from World of Tanks until something better besides random battles is available. Too much seal clubbing still occurs in Random Battles.

 

Frontline should in my not so humble opinion be the only battle mode for World of Tanks.

Frontline was fun, but it would get stale very quickly if a permanent mode.  I was fatigued with it after only a few days.  The biggest draw for people was the credit earning potential; I played to the bitter end yesterday...for the credits, not the fun.  Playing the same tanks repeatedly on the same map gets old very fast.

 

I hope they will bring it out 2-3 times per year, like they have with Ranked Battles.

Well WG, you really did well with this event,  it was a nice break from the same old routine of random battles where a majority of the time the match resulted in a loss no matter how well one played.

And the really nice part, there was no "blowouts" where the match would be over within the first 4 minutes, extremely frustrating.

The rewards in Frontline were fairly generous as well, I was able to add another 10 million credits, not too shabby for just a few hours daily.

The only "tweak" I might suggest, might be to adjust the capture times for the zones, it seemed as tho they were a bit "fast", the timer bar didn't seem to drop that much when an attacker was hit by a shell.

Aside from that, the event was a welcomed addition to the game imo.  Hope to see it again soon.....

I don't know how anyone could vote against this.  Tier 10 players must be pissed they can't brutally murder as many tier 8s when we get our own gamemode.  

If you don't like frontline don't play it.  Nobody is forcing you to play frontline.  I don't like frontline as a matter of fact I hated it.  But that doesn't mean it shouldnt be in the game for other players to enjoy.
