Right now, the numbers are fairly small and it's hard to make teams which is leading to long waiting times, it is up and available for you to play.  Thanks.

I personally played a ton the first month. Last time I think I played 5 or 6 battles (in those few battles I made General 3 times, but it doesn't matter). Completely over it and from some of the conversations I've seen. I don't think I am the only one. It's nice to get the extra XP and credits and not have to worry about fighting tier 10s in your tier 8s. However, having only one map (which isn't all that great anyway), players that don't understand the mode at all, players whining about losing 30 seconds into a battle that will last 20+ minutes etc. I expect that the numbers are going to drop off each month. The rewards are good, but the novelty is completely worn off and the thought of grinding through that anymore is completely unappealing. Maybe it's just me, but I doubt I'll play it again unless maybe they add a new map.

Another map would be good. It's good that it works well with 1 hour personal reserves as you get 3 matches per hour, you make good credit and XP income and no stats. A great way to get through tier 8 tech tree tanks that 3-5-7 taught you to hate.

 

My goals are to grind tier 8 tech tree tanks and get some of the frontline rewards. I'm done playing stock tanks in pubs because like it or not stats are a part of this game and it's demoralizing to look at bad stats on a tank that you just got through a hard equipment grind with.

Maybe it's me but this mode is the equivalent of a musician playing Inna Gadda Da Vida.   Once you finish, you start playing it again, and again.    You'd go brain-dead.

gonna try out some new configurations on my tier 8 German tanks.  I may be able to get away using lower tier guns that have a higher ROF and DPM, but still have enough pen for tier 8 tanks.

First month it was good and fun, and I played a lot.  Second month the invasion of the wheeled tanks took over, and it rapidly lost its fun value and I didn't play much.  This month, I doubt I'll even play one game.

Just don't understand the appeal of the game mode. People are grinding it while it's boring for two top end tanks that are not even going to be good or played much on top of not even being rare since thousands of people on NA alone will unlock them :teethhappy:

I love FL mode. IT does away with two things I dislike most. Being three tiers down on a regular basis and platoons having that happen even more.

Map is not as good as people say. Always plays out in the same spots and routes.

 

Also, tier 8 premiums are so broken that it takes out the fun of it

Its a pretty good way to level crew skills.

People whine too much. People play frontline for a few reasons, crew or tank grinding. Credits, or rewards, or just for a change. No matter why, play or don't, but don't whine about it.

Lets see, boring map which means that there's only realy 9 maps in "Rotation" and realy its the same map

 

Attack usually seems to win

 

Average battle lasted me for around 7-8 min due to blowouts, (including waiting for respawn.)

 

very slow progression on prestige progress because of said blowouts.

 

All this for 2 tanks that feel like like they already take more work to get than the EBR.
