For me, Frontline was fun and I looked forward to every stage.  Not with Steel Hunter.  I thought SH stage I was bearable, but the latest point progression changes make it too grindy for me, especially since I don't enjoy playing a king-of-the-hill, last-man-standing style game. I wish they'd bring back Frontline from 2 years ago when they had tier 8 reward tanks and gold/bond/credit rewards, but I suppose no chance of that.:(

I wish for Frontline too. SH feels worse than Vegas. You need to be in the top 50% just to break even and only the top5 get any progress points. It's to grindy and setup for the top 5% of the WT gamers. I feel like WT keeps trying to find new ways to drive away new players.

So glad I just needed on more token last episode. No desire to play the mode anymore and I can chill a bit an take a much needed break from the game.

The more people stop playing these modes that are not compatible for most players maybe WG will change - I loved Frontlines but hated SH just not for me....lol

I like Steel Hunter, gives me a chance to practice one on one's every match. Gone from losing most of my encounters to winning more than I lose. Also, since you cannot tell the caliber of playing, xvm nonsense...stats...etc, it's less intimidating.

 

Frontlines is ok, but I can't take more than a couple games of it.

 

They should have made it one month of Frontlines, one month of Steel Hunter. Or better yet, one week of each in the month.

I wish there were some type of survey which could identify the reason for player preference for Steel Hunter or FrontLine.  I don't know precisely why I loathe Steel Hunter.  I thought the first iteration earlier this year was barely tolerable and with the changes to this iteration, I've completely lost interest.

I am not a fan of SH, it wasn't bad last time, but this new one that forces you to play at near unicum levels is no fun for the average player.

SH is the epitome of repetitive game play. Read up on it and played it twice, and the second time I lost interest around the halfway point. If FL had maybe 2 more decent maps, I’d play that mode almost exclusively year round. The ability to get away from the multiple garbage maps currently being spammed by WG would be wonderful. 
On the current FL maps every tank class has a role at some point that can sway the battle.

Wargaming makes a fun mode, it becomes popular, Wargaming says; "Needs more grinding". Repeat.

I K R ... maybe if the credit earnings were in line with FrontLine I wouldn't be so averse to investing my time.

Good Lord what a trash mode ... six battles now, and spawn into the middle of three or four enemies in five of them ... five of six battles I'm #19 100% due to spawn position RNG.

Frontline is dominated by ebrs and is stupid.  Arty scumbags routine leave zones so more can spawn and stack games with 5 or 6.  I'll take seal hunter any day over FL.  First season was great.  Now FL just sucks.

I look forward to Front Line. I try Steel Hunter each year, find I don't like it and move on.

 

More maps for Front Line please.
