This from the ASIA site about changes they are testing;

 

Improved Pillbox Armour

Your pillboxes will have their turrets' side armour increased from 160 to 180mm, giving them some much-needed protection from light tanks, who will now have to risk more behind enemy lines. In addition, high-angle shots by TDs from a distance will no longer be able to penetrate them.

Decreased Base Capture Speed

All units, stand by to repel the enemy invasion in Zone B! To cool the attacking team's tracks a little, base capture speed will now receive smaller bonuses from the Engineering Combat Reserve, as follows:

  • Levels 1 & 2 - 1.5x base capture speed (previously 1.6x)
  • Levels 3 & 4 - 1.7x (previously 1.8x)
  • Level 5 - 1.8x (previously 2x)

Recalibrated Airstrikes

Pesky attackers moving in on your bases? Interrupt that capture and thwart their plans! The Airstrike Combat Reserve will now do more reliable splash damage within its radius of effect when deployed, but in exchange, its penetration will decrease.

10 hours after the scheduled start time, Frontline hasn't kicked off on the ASIA server.

 

WG staff are working on resolving "technical issues."

Yup, most changes that are being mooted are run on the ASIA server.

 

They had the new MM ages ago.

More splash, less penetration. If it will change from abused weapon of mass sky murder into tool for cap reset it could be better for filthy Skorpions and fragile Progettos.

For the most part. Asia server runs how it pleases. Just because they do something doesnt mean its incoming anywhere else.

 

Additionally. Id prefer them make B slightly harder to cap and C slightly easier. It only takes like 6 tanks to defend C easily

They did say at the start of the year that they would be making changes to Frontline as it went along.  So, I would not be surprised if we get these changes this week.

I hate recon more than anything else. Also, the fact that now everyone is an arty player. Nasty surprise to anyone holding a corner or in cover and you get "balanced."

Most of those buffs were needed but the airstrikes and artillery strikes are already out of hand. God, everyone, their mother, and their dog use artillery strikes when they can't seem to pen heavy tanks or find TD's or hit scouts
