Here I am trying to see how many others in the game have noticed the crazy amount of camping, and I would like to gather data and opinions on it. 

 

I should also add, Some tanks(Like td's and arties) have their roles to be behind the head tanks, but when lights, Mediums, and Heavies sit behind the front lines, something should be done to change that.

 

Sorry that this is located in the WGC forums

Well, first you might want to fix your poll by changing to use radio buttons so you can't just select every answer (edit: or was it that it's the same style but it just limits how many you can select.. i've not made a poll so eh..)

I must agree.  I made it back to be able to play a very few Frontline games and WOW at the amount of campers.

It's World of TD's and Arty now. Leave your tank in the garage.

The role of some tanks are to be snipers, but when the whole team thinks that is their too, it ruins the game.

Sick to death of seeing heavy and medium tanks sitting further back than TD,s and sometimes even further than arty as for frontlines this time round it seems there is no drive on behalf of players to win the vast majority of the team seem content to sit back and try to snipe even when playing attackers

The reason WHY players camp is the main problem.....  witnessed way too many poke out of a camp spot only to get instantly destroyed by unseen snipers.  

 

Driving out towards the usual brawl zones can also get a heavy torn up along the way.    Every map it seems is rigged for snipers to intercept and punish the slower heavies.     What exactly do you expect heavies to do when pinned  down by ghosts?  Should they proceed and get torn up, or find a camping spot?

Camping has always been terrible, it's caused by arty.

The balance is off.    TD's and SPG's, with few exceptions are support tanks, yet a lot of times they make up 1/2 the team.    After 2 minutes there is nothing left to support, because the tanks they are supposed to support are the first ones to be eliminated - since they are the actual tanks contesting ground.   By the 3rd minute mark you start seeing 60-70% of the team being support tanks, and it just keeps going downhill from there.    We don't notice that dynamic nearly as much in Frontlines, because outside of the Scorpion G we just don't see that many TD's - it's a mode based on mobility and the ability to reposition to where the battles are being waged.     See a lot more Light tanks than you'd see in Randoms, thats for sure.

There is no incentive to win in Frontlines, it's a grindy have fun mode.    Not sure why people would want it to be a must win mode - as it is you pretty much just see the meta tanks anyway.     It's a mode where people can leave the caustic WN8 infested waters of WoT and even grind that Tier VIII tank without having to play it in Randoms - and keep getting dumped on by +2 matchmaking.

No it's not it's caused by the knowledge that you will be zeroe'd in 2 seconds by a spotting light and the 6 tanks waiting to shoot the spotted vehicle. Getting hit for 200 hp and stunned for 14 secs doesn't bother me being killed in a matter of seconds does.

I think WG has figured out that all this business about camping real. I got a tip that they are putting something in the shop to make money off of it...

If you are 2 tiers down just throw tradition roles of Heavies out the window.   Trying to perform those roles is a 1 minute trip and then straight to the garage.    If you are a Heavy with no mobility and 2 tiers down there really is only 1 place for you and no you can't just go back to the garage because you want to either.   It's at the back, and I'm not even sure the 2nd line is safe for a 2 tiered down Heavy that can't move well - and most can't.

When it gets to where it is obvious that something is wrong with the team I'll just suicide out of spite and go play another tank as this crap gets old fast. If blues and purples have hell just trying to carry it to a 50/50 much less win then it is not worth the effort to carry the useless passives.

When I'm in my STRV 103 B with 30mm of armor at the front, I am going to camp, unless I can get into a position of advantage (team dependent).  That's all there is to it.
