Frontline, its fun and all, but can a WG dev explain why we need to allow people to play arty in this mode? We have air and arty strikes already, and as someone who still gets focused all game by some scumbags at the back of the map, it would be a nice change of pace to have a mode where this wasnt reality. 

 

Or alternatively, dont allow xvm mods of any kind in frontline.

Why so much complaints about arty, there's only one of them per area? 95% of the time I get damaged/killed by tanks and TD's, not by arty. And again, tanks and TD's do so much more damage than arty.

I only complain about arty in frontline for the Opposite reason i complain about them in Randoms. Frontline i feel is all about DPM, and they number of People around the Cap. You get General Rank Easy, when you cap, or defend the Cap. now say you are Defending, and the Enemy rushes cap Right at the start in the First min, While Normal tanks could Defend and keep them at bay, arty only shoots once during the Entire Cap. making DPM less effective. With Arty Strikes you can eliminate the Low HP tanks before you get there, and Airstrikes do Stuns just like arty, making Arty in My Opinion useless. i just feel a normal tank to help defend the Cap would be more effective

Did you have something useful to add? Or you just wanted to remind everyone what a potato sounds like?

Well, this might be the reason some play Arty in frontline. I couldn't pass beyond captain playing meds, heavy and TDs scoring  +7k   damage multiple times and even 8994 damage was only captain tank lol.

 

Then tried Arty and wow, first game got major with only 4k damage and some 2k stun assist which wasn't difficult. Since then I bought back M40/43  back since G.W tiger was quite slow. I got two more major rank while playing Arty.

If you are scrub like me and don't have meta tanks for Frontline like ( progetto 46, Defender and Scorpion G) arty is easy was to get good tanks specially when defending, attacking is difficult for arty to do well but still good.

The whole point of FL is a fluid battleground. There already exists arty/air. Allowing people to still use stats to focus, is even more frustrating then in pubs. At least for me

a day without a crappy bunch of players clicking in their arty, at 47% WR in the hopes of getting better, would be a day full of sunshine.

Except, we are talking a tank game, on an online forum. There was no reference to real life, in any way. So in this context, yes, I am good at this game, yes, I have the right to use the forums to discussion, and yes, this isnt real life. I made a suggestion, you offer insults. See the difference?

 

I made a suggestion, two actually, that would go towards helping make a game mode better. What do you offer besides angrily posting from a reroll account?

I was thinking it would be a nice break and not get harrassed by them but I swear I get harrassed more by them in this mode then randoms. Its pretty aggravating.

Theres only 3 spgs on each side at any time and youre complaining? If you get focused by arty in this mode its because youre camping too much, the map is so large that if you move its almost imposible to score a direct hit on someone unless youre very close.

In pubs, arty players are about 10% in queue at any given time.

 

In Frontline, it's MORE than half hitting the queue in arty.

 

Even then, arty is 10% of the entire frontline game.  

 

You're complaining about 10%.  

 

When you think about it... you might make yourself Shut up?

I see someone play a sky cancer dispenser in FL, all I can think is " What a scrub. He can't even play a regular tank in Frontline..."

A day without an idiot whining about 'clicking'... whatever the fck that means... we all click... would be a day.  Yep just a day.

 

Here is what "clickers" means.  To some in their mind they are driving a real metal tank while SPG players are not.

An example, the first day of Frontline an SPG player asked for advice on where to go.

One of the crybabies chimed in "drive a real tank."

 

Amazing.

Just be happy knowing those scumbag clickers most likely aren't getting any useful xp on those tanks and are earning very little credits.

Oh I hope that's the case.  For whatever reason, I have been focused and killed a lot by arty this go round.  I agree with the OP that eliminating arty would be the way to go here.  I carry my level 5 artillery strike and hold it for when arty is spotted now.  I've bagged a few and it makes me really REALLY happy.  :teethhappy:

 

BTW - obviously if you're one of the folks playing arty or you simply suck at the game, then you'll have a different perspective.  :amazed:
