The power balance for me (only about 2 hours of play this episode) has shifted significantly between this episode and last. Last episode Normandy attackers consistently won and this time  defenders have been winning. The opposite has been true for the newer map. Not sure whether this is tweaks or learning or new players but it’s been interesting.

I think that new map is more balanced. It is also less friendly to light tanks and arty, which in my opinion is a huge plus. On old map, half the teams were light tanks (mostly EBRs and Lynxs) and that ruined the map for me.

 

Perhaps people simply do not know the new map as well as the old (me included). New map takes more teamwork, which is hard when you get the stupids on your team.

 

All in all, I'm very glad  they introduced the new map.

I love the new map, and cringe every time I get stuck on the old one.

I like both maps do better on old map but that is because I know it better, just need to keep learning on new map. Hope they don't make to many changes to slow down learning? curve.

They ruined Frontline by making it a grind.  I'll take a new map though.

I hated the kraftwerk map at first but this last episode, something changed for me and now I find it interesting.

Although I get it far more than normandie I have learned to embrace it and dig in to the terrain.

As mentioned before, frontline is a damage farm and winning or losing is mostly irrelevant to me.

I just want to kill tanks, make my creds,  grind my crew and move on to the next match.

Players had been requesting another Frontline map for months, now you are wanting to exclude maps. Sometimes I think the player base don’t know what they want. It does look like both maps could use some further changes to help with the balance of the maps, but I really enjoy having 2 maps to play on. See y’all on the battlefield.

I like the Kraftwerk map much better than the Normandy map. The battles on Kraftwerk seem to go for the full time. The Normandy battles are ending with a whole lot of time left on the clock due to some players wanting to "win". They have figured out how to fast cap up to the objectives and then destroy them .

 

Don't get me wrong, I want to win, and play to win, in matches where winning matters.

I like Kraftwerk. It took a few times to figure it out, but overall it's ok.

It's not bad guys, it's just different.

Give it time and you'll figure it out.
