Any new map is great... but I'm not a big fan of snow maps, would prefer more desert maps.

From what it looks like the AE Phase 1 will be one of the tanks that can be taken in on Frontline maps now?  It's not exactly clear.

Nope, I don't read that.  It's just that this episode will be the first where it is possible to get to prestige X, which is a requirement to earn the AE Phase 1, so "Starting from Episode 8, the most skillful Frontline players will be able to grab the unique AE Phase I".

 

Nowhere do they say you'll be able to play this tier IX tank in Frontlines itself.

Looking at the new map with the Nuclear Power Plant feature, it is only a matter of time before this game goes completely from the early to mid tank era that built its loyal following to the Modern era that games such as War Thunder have.  One can only hope that the trial mode of original World of Tanks some of us had the pleasure to play and comment on several months ago will become a real option.  If not, then World of Tanks loses its uniqueness and becomes just another war game in the ever increasing world of MMOs.

It's a normal power plant, not a nuclear one.

Most of the power plant in Europe have the nuke power plant look because of the cooling towers, but they are just regular coal/gas plants. That design was patented in 1918 by a Dutch, first used in 1918 in The Netherlands. First one in the UK was in built in 1924 at a coal power plant.

I thought the missions would let us earn 10 Frontline reserves.  I only count 9?

I did not enjoy this incarnation of FL at all. The F#$% game crashed on me 4 times in one battle. Each reload I was dead. I'm done.

The new map won't even load... just the splash screen.
Can't even exit back to garage, can't do anything with the game until the battle is over....

 

Known bug???

This map is great, thank you for the work put in for it. Excellent that it is actually a battle map, rather than a hide and snipe map. Don't listen to the detractors who are never happy and always seem to find something to complain about.

I think this new map is pretty bad. I wonder, did WG design the last map, or was it mostly the Australian company they contracted to do the game mode? And as for the new map, was it mostly WG map designers? It seems to me that the new map is heavily peppered with hard cover, which seems like easy/lazy map design to me. It's known to many in the community that WG is atrocious at map design.

Not only is map balance easier to achieve with placing hard cover, but there's the added bonus of forcing people to fire more gold as only turrets tend to show. I can achieve General on the new map just fine, but it's heavily dependent on whether or not you get defense, as the camping behind hard cover factor is such a map breaker.

It just makes me wonder if they would be better with sticking with BongFish to do their FL development.

If the episode is going to end on Monday, why does the client say "Episode 8 ends in 1 d"...?

Good a place to put this as anywhere.

 

The AE representing almost a years grind is a total farce. The hull should have been at least as good as the 103 not something that most tier 6's could pen like cheese. ( Technically the the new Obj 244 gets a better hull.) I'm really disappointed that Wargaming thinks so little of us as this. 

 

What a waste of time.

If you guys are burned out on FL, and thinking about tossing in the towel on the Phase 1, don't!

 

The gun handling is amazing on this tank.  Snap shots better than most mediums.

No, I will finish my fronline next episode, I'm on level 9.14 but i will NOT take Phase 1. I prefer WZ 111 and some gold then some "special" IX tier.

So there will be a FL in November? I’m Half way through prestige 7. I have only been able to play the last three episodes. I would like to get the AE phase 1 but if October is the last one it won’t be possible. I’ve found that two prestige tanks per episode is about all I can take.

 

running boosters, the credits and free XP alone make Frontlines worth it. I pulled 57k free, already converted XP and about 20 million credits.
