Frontlines only highlights just how useless campers and timid players are in this game.  Every time I get on the attacking team I cringe thinking about how many useless campers and wusses I'll get.  It's almost like fighting with one hand tied behind your back when you get the usual dose of wusses and campers.

 

I didn't think one year would make such a huge difference, but I was wrong.  The number of wusses and campers just exploded, such much so that half of the attacking teams in frontlines are completely useless.   Last year, one could simply leave the campers to rot in their own sector and join a sector that looked like it was moving.  There usually was one or two.  Not any more. 

 

They all say "what am I supposed to do?  rush?"

 

ummm... yeah.  It'll accomplish a lot more than what your camping is doing.  The cap circle doesn't need overwatch, it needs direct support when you are on the attacking team.

I dread getting the defending team on Frontlines. You usually can't play aggressively, and none of your team will back you up if you try. You just have to sit and hope the damage comes to you. When I'm attacking I can at least drive towards the damage. Also capping is easier than resetting and gives big xp.

I've had great success playing aggressively on the middle sectors, the two flanking sectors on the other hand... Yeesh. 

 

Also, I really feel as though they need to completely redesign the easternmost sectors. They're absolutely terrible to play on, attacking or defending.

I just stopped playing it. Games lasting 30+ minutes are not my thing.

I've won one defense, and we won only cause we didn't defend, we attacked hard.

I think I was defending 3 of the 4 times and I also agree with the people camping but I also took into consideration that the new people may still be trying to figure it out. Hopefully as more play the more they figure it out

I prefer defending, but haven't had too many issues with teams on either side of the cap points.

Winning may be a little easier on defense, but that doesn't make it more entertaining than attacking. You'd be amazed by what can be accomplished by simply putting pressure on the caps and forcing the defenders to pay attention to you.

Air and artillery strikes need to go away.  As if 3 arty in random battles isn't bad enough, now you have the possibility of 30 players with air/artillery strikes + SPGs.

I love defense and running into the attackers rear after a zone falls to harass the spawn. Dunno if you are supposed to be able to do that but there is no warning and no ai arty hammering me when I do.

 

Attack isn't quite as much fun but I typically play lights so I flank into a nice position then dump my strikes then reposition after taking a few potshots at the defenders and riling them up to come after me.

Half the time, literally, I did not know what side I was on. My buddies on Skype had to tell me. Did not really impact my play, oddly.

Unfortunately, that's exactly how most of them play in pubs.

I always attack on the A side and defend on the C side.  Seems to work out the best for damage farming and winning.   Granted it's tough to win as defender and tough to lose as attacker unless your team is full of 'special' players.

It's day one, many are just trying to remember or new and figuring it out. Sometime it's just a patient attack as I've seen and we won those or aggro on B and flank from B. Couple losses but mostly there to grind 3 tier 8s, the rest is just icing on the cake.

Another thread whining about how others play. lol

 

I never ‘cringe’ over any type of player, because it’s just a game. And my fun is determined by my performance, not my teammates’.

It's not MY idea how to play the game.  It's the ATTACKING team.  Aren't they supposed to ATTACK?

 

What do you do whenever the attacking team doesn't want to attack?  Do you join them and just farm damage, or do you try to capture bases and get the ball rolling?  It's kind of hard to capture a base when hardly anyone is attacking.
