If you don't like waiting that long in queue, just play a different tank. Is it really that hard to understand?

 

Most just stopped playing after getting the tier 9. The mode is boring and the maps get repetitive (the new one really sucks), so why not just grind credits in pubs.

 

Why would you do this? You do mean Prestige Level and not tier?

 

If so wouldn't 2500 bonds be worth the last grind?

People who have already competed frontline arent logging back in because the grind was terrible. So you are going to have a dwindling base of players for the last few episodes.

 

This.

 

Got my AE Phase I last night, done with FL.

FL is a great way to grind a tier 8 tank if you are at max prestige. Just got 164 k XP on my arty I was struggling with. Now its elited, got good crewskills, and I killed a running EBR last night and another one that got blocked from behind by his teammate for 943 hp :).

I finished the prestige grind earlier this week. Never had trouble with finding games on Monday and Tuesday, nor on the weekend. I can see why people would’ve dropped the mode after getting their reward tanks of choice, but I have tanks to grind through and just enough Stockholm syndrome induced fondness for FL to keep coming back.

Tier 9 tank, the AE. People stopped after getting the top reward. After that, there is no incentive to play unless you really think frontlines gets you more credits, for me its just too boring.

What about bonds, isn’t that 3100 - 3200 bonds you are leaving on the table?

I reached prestige X last month, but I still hopped on every now and then to play a few sessions.  I suspect most people hit max prestige and then either quit or hopped in a few matches like I did. I still prefer the mode over regular random matches.

I stop short of saying I like it more but what I will say is that it sure as hell breaks up the monotony of randoms.

I played a bunch last night around the time you made this topic.  I never waited more than 30 seconds to get a battle.

 

I'm impressed you actually waited 45 minutes just to play arty.

My teams were 90% garbage last night.

8 Games

2 Wins

3 Generals

3 Majors

1 Capt

1 LT

I'm glad to be done with it.

Well, you asked a question that had an obvious answer so it's not surprising that people dumped on you-especially when you already had your answer.

I played FL up through Thursday (had to go out of town Friday) and had no such troubles. Never waited even one full minute to get in a battle.

 

Of course, I don't play arty...

 

The piranhas in here will go after you even if you have a legit question.

I would consider that night an unbelievably astounding success

Second Best thing about that game mode.  You don't need to carry the idiot pubbies, you just need to play well for yourself.  Many times it is easier to rank up while they are licking the windows...

Yes Jake I am sure the maps in random are SO much more exciting. I mean what, most have been around for freaking years. Perhaps you enjoy the cracker box size? Or the corridors that funnel everyone down to a choke point aspect of them. Does that titillate you an cause you to wiggle in your chair at the monitor? Maybe its the extreme variety of play that occurs in random mode. I mean every time I log in its wow what new will I see today? I like having an large open map with the flexibility to play every tank type as it can an should be played. But each to his Jake boy.

This.

 

Even an average (at best) player like me can make Captain or Major nearly ever time.... regardless of whether or not half of my team is mindlessly driving around in circles or never leaves the initial spawning area.

 

Raking in credits, training crews, practicing with unfamiliar tanks, no worries about winning or losing.... and a great break from pubs for a week.... What is not to like?

 

My only regret is that I was limited by computer performance earlier in the year and was unable to play the mode. Had I started in the beginning... I have no doubt I could have at least gotten the Emil 1951....

True.
