I do not know who to blame, but i think wargaming devs take the cake, i just spent hours playing NOTHING but defense in frontlines, 10 out of  last 12 been defense. Other then that the game is enjoyable.. I may be done with it after tomorrow night if the same crap happens agains, You have to AT LEAST split the crap 50/50. What is the point of loading tanks out for a certain front when you just keep getting thrown into matches where you tank directive is useless????? My god not only do you mess up map rotation, MM, you still manage to mess up the frontlines MM on chances of either defense or offense, NOBODY or NO PLAYER should have to sit through this many defenses in a 12 match sit down, its not like its random pubs where it last 3 mins, You can not just get  up and leave the match!! Come on wargaming, at this rate i think you should sell the company to EA games, even they could maybe do better!!!!

Frontlines is an extremely flawed concept. lt is from an extremely flawed development team from communism-ville, so l would not expect any less. The point is, War Gaming world of tanks receives so much flak, they feel the need to release frontlines, and flawed or not the only thing that matters is only tier 8 MM

With that in mind, Frontline can be absolutely horrible, and l wouldn't care, and many wouldn't care, because it is a means to play overpowered tier 8 tanks, in ONLY Tier 8 attles. Or you could also grind out annoying tech tree tanks too. The choice is yours, and you are free from WGs completely terrible 3/5/7 MM.  

So take your blessings as they come. Although Frontline is crappy, from crappy devs, endorsed by crappy public relations staff,  it is not as crappy as 3/5/7.

By the way, Frontlines isn't saving WGs population problem

Pop still going down, only 11K on high time.

That is laughable. This game is going into the dirt.

id much rather play randoms, cause i came from days where i was in a lowe as the ONLY tier 8 on a 14 player team of 10's and i survived, I just cant get why they still keep these devs of these departments on the team, i mean who in there right mind thinks its ok to have 80 percent defensive matches??? i mean its common code they can fix it, but like always they just keep throwing out crap after crap while they take there good old time fixing the MM, and while at it they should fix the MM of front lines also or this is going to be an issue all year long!!!

Considering I've played the longest I have ever in a single day than in the previous year, I'd have to say that I had a positive experience. I've had a good mix of both offense and defense. Perhaps you just had a misfortune night. But I'm not going to stop you from leaving if you feel so strongly negative about the mode.

i like the mode but not one single player should be stuck between good mm and bad mm, the mm should be the same across the board, i do not call 11 out of 13 defenses being a good mix, and this is me clicking battle right after the last one ends, so its not like i am going back to pubs then back again, there should not be players having crapnights because wargaming devs can not make a consistent MM system, Only consistent MM they can make is football matches LOL

It is random, and thus repeatedly getting defense instead of attack is bound to happen for some people.

This mode is still a huge success as far as I'm concerned, especially if the comparison is the garbage 3/5/7 MM for tier 8.

 

I'd gladly take all the times you got put on defense if I could.  It's still better than 3/5/7 tier 8 MM.

well duh its random, but dont you remember when wargaming released an update that the new MM looked at players previous maps so that players wouldnt get the same ones over and over and over again? Yeah i remember and that is broken once again also, so they should use a better system, its [edited]2019 for crying out loud

I'm having a blast with it. Give me defense, give me attack I don't care. 200K  credits a game is nice.

You do realise Frontlines is a completely different MM system to randoms? You could get the defending spawn on assault 10 times in a row, but never notice because you are playing multiple standard and encounter battles in between every assault battle you play.

Been a typical mix of modes for me sometimes the same side a few times in a row. However the one thing I do notice the first time I load in is that I get far more landings on C beach than A or B but defense will put me anywhere.

Frontlines is a really boring mode that gets really repetitive after the first few hours. Sure, its good for making a few credits here and there. But for how long each round tanks, I would rather earn my credits playing pubs.

 

I mean, I'm honestly only playing it to get the Emil premium and the secret tier 9... Its like Pokemon, gotta catch them all.

Are you an idiot? 11,000 isn't the peak concurrent player number, it gets over 20,000.
