Post here about Frontlines feedback....

 

Ill start:

 

Constantly on the same side is not fun. Defense seems to be just as terrible as last time. Some caps are balanced terribly, and are hard to either cap, or defend. Terrain resistances seem to be consistent with a swamp, as even my lights are sluggish everywhere but in the town. Player arty is ruining what could be a great mode. They get 4 slots, and can mount Arty strikes, and air strikes. Making each arty effectively 3 arty.....

 

On the point of arty, why not just allow them to only have supporting consumables? Like recon flight, and smoke screen? They should not have the other ones.

 

B cap is balanced heavily for the attackers, when a platoon of heavies can cap out, and the enemy team can do nothing...

The curfew starting at Midnight PST seems a bit unfair to them.

Would think that after 10 years War Gaming would know that their game is a global game and is played 24/7 by all players with different playing times.

Seems to me that this episode of frontline is little bit harder for the attacking team to win, I have seen all my wins on the defense side.

 

Zone C and F are very difficult to cap, while zones A and E are balanced for both sides, it's zone D that again is in favor of defence, only zone B is favorable for attacker.

 

Arty is still pain in the [edited]but since there are repair zones and respawning, It didn't bother me as in random battles.

 

Generally the mode is still enjoyable and fun.

Personally, I think this mode is made for arty. They are actually forced to stop focusing on one player but rather focus on the cap, I would say in the battles I've played so far in Frontlines, arty shot me 5 or 6 times at least, That was when I was capping, but just bombing it around the map, you don't even know arty is there because they don't always shoot you if you are not capping.

I will have to play arty if I can shoot, airstrike, and arty strike each every 40 seconds.  Sounds awesome to be like 3 arty.

 

Wait, I will not be able to do all that every 40 seconds, because this is just an arty-complaint section of the OP.

 

The arty limit is even lower for Frontlines compared to randoms, when expressed as a ratio of arty/non-arty.  Arty has less effect in Frontlines than it does in randoms.

 

Observe, learn, adapt.

I would say that cap defense is a particularly pointed use of arty in Frontlines, rather than the whole mode is great for arty.  Still, I have won each time on attack, and have helped cap.

 

Also, fred_632, great sig.... :D

That schedule is for the 11th to the 18th, its a daily schedule. And it seems right to me. I was playing FL and the curfew went into effect at 3:00am EST.  Trying to enter FL now shows a schedule box, rather than letting you Battle, and FL will be back up at 6:00am EST. 

 

For those of you wondering why I'm playing at 2am, I'm retired, and 70 years old. So I go to bed early and get up early, almost always before 4:00am.  Last night I went to bed at 8pm, so I was up at 2:00am after my normal 6 hours sleep.  Since there is not much happening at that time of the morning I play WoT while I drink my coffee.

I think you need to  reread the schedule -- there is a 3 hour curfew when frontlines is unavailible ---  0300 pt to 00:00 pt daily from 11 feb to 18 Feb ==== 21 hours of 24

It would be good to roll the curfew 2 hours later or at least 1 hour

 

- sound bug when the engine is damaged, it is repaired but the engine sound remains as if it is still damaged.

- same old respawn spotted bug (in the minimap it looks like the tank flies before the respawn)
