Please, people, Frontline isn't about winning the battle - it's about farming points and ranking up for prestige points!!!

 

If you're defending and see that time is running out, let enemy cap and then farm them, then let them cap again, etc. It's as simple as that.

It's pointless to end the game where no one even made it to a Major.

 

It's sad to waste 15min on a battle and your whole team was consisted of Lieutenants and couple of Captains...  

 

Just chill, shoot, assist, use Inspire and Smoke Screen, cap and let enemy cap when needed. Even if you lose you will get extra xp and credits because of your rank!

 

It's all about ranks, points and prestige - which gives you rewards!!!

How is it conflicting with CW??? It runs almost whole day, everyday - you can play it whenever you want, besides the cooldown period and when server is restarting in the morning.

some of us work for a living, so we don’t have all day to just play games.  Must be nice to not be responsible for taking care of yourself or anyone else...

Unless you're desperate to play arty how is this bad for you, there are only 3 artys allowed on each team no matter how many there are in the queue

If those 48 guys were in tanks the queue time would be shorter.

Which is exactly what is wrong with this mode, the player base, and the company.

Well you know some people are retired, some are college students, some are disabled. So to say they aren't responsible for taking care of anyone is judgemental. Like me i am disabled from a stroke and other health issues. But before i became disabled, I got our house paid off, our cars are paid off, one kid started college last year and one got married. So I say i have done a pretty good job at taking care of my family. But I can't sit and play all day as I have Physical Therapy daily and can't sit long do to getting blood clots super easy.

All it takes to cap now is to push 3 ts-5's onto cap and just protect their sides. Played a game earlier and every zone was capped on the first attempt with three ts-5's. It was over pretty quick. May give it another go later.

Is there a place where you can check what level prestige you are at? I played a few FL games, and wondering where i'm at in terms of progression. Thanks in advance!

Unless I've decided to play arty I've never really waited to get a game in FL, the queue fills up all the time and since everyone is in a toer 8 tank it doesn't take long. In my experience

Click on the big frontline "shield" on the top of your screen, or just hover your mouse over it

You know what they say about pissing in the wind right? 

Of course you’re absolutely correct on all points, but try reaching those “special” folks who wanna play it their way. 

I’ve typed in, “it’s not about the win, ranking up is” 

I’ve gotten some pretty interesting reply’s and I’ll just say I had a few 7 minute battles today where I ranked Lt. at best and 3K damage was the high score.....

 

Never the less, I still made 1.5 million credits in 4 hrs and completed the Cent 1 and my WZ 132 module grinds!

so it’s a win...of sorts.

I do work, in a school as a history teacher, so I have 6 hours of work there and additional 3-4 hours at home for preparing lessons, grading, administration and other activities (depends from week to week). You can add 2 hours of commute to those 9-10 hours and you get 12. 

I also have band practices pretty often, which usually take 2-3 hours once they happen. 

 

It still leaves me plenty of time to play my games, hang out, do errands, spend time with family and SO and rest/sleep. 

 

Just because your time management is bad, it doesn't mean mine is. 

 

Frontline is active fo 21 hour per day, if you can't find the time to play it, then it's not my problem. Must be nice to not be able to manage your time. (see what I did there?) :D
