Attention Tankers!

 

After playing Frontline for most of the year, I'm sure most of you are more than ready a new map.

 

"Kraftwerk" or "Power Station" offers a different variety of different play styles where the first map was lacking.  Also, its covered in snow!  

 

Along with the new map we have some changes and fixes coming as well.  For the full list of all the changes, fancy images, music, and to join the common test, use the link provided below:

GLHF!

 The new map is set in the suburbs of a post-WWII Central European city during winter. Here, you can battle it out in open patches with complex terrain, small towns, ruins of old castles, military bunkers, and more.

 

So post WW2 Europe with reactor cooling towers.

Kraftwerk .... the original powerhouse pioneers of electronic music.

The first song is dedicated to the games' bots ....

Community: We don't like snow maps, they look bland. How about some night maps? Or dynamic weather, that would be cool! 

 

WG: More snow maps you say? Stay right there!

Because the snow volume on the current FL map is blinding.

 

Oh wait...

British LTs still utterly useless. They needed more slight buff, and they still do.

These British light tank "buffs" are pathetic. Why would anyone play these when the wheeled lights are available? They're basically making an already power creeped line off the start.

I'm new to the common test and I played the new map today and enjoyed the game play. Seemed that the objectives A thru F were more favorable to the attackers but defending the gun turrets favored the defenders. Will get some more play in tomorrow and then check out the British lights. Not sure if the ammo re-balance was in effect but found I still need to use some special shells for some heavy tanks

So to fix the horrendously underpowered British lights, they... did almost nothing. They gave the 8 and 9 less than 7% extra engine power, and didn't even touch the 7. On the plus side, it looks like we don't have to deal with any new OP tanks for a little while.

 

Happy to see a new FL map, at least.

The Brit light tanks still have 2 crew members, over-loading them with crew skills and being a liability to all being killed by an HE shot.  No one in their right mind would grind this line.  And I'm saying this as someone who has every light tank prem and every tier 10 light tank.

 

New LF map?  AMAZING.  Now we just need a desert map to complete the set and make our camos worth even more :-)

Oh boy, these absolutely minor changes to the most underpowered line ever to be introduced into the game turned them into, who would have guessed, still the most underpowered line ever to be introduced into the game.

The music is on point for this map, like Normandie or whatever it's called
