How many episodes and when?  This is basically the only reason to play over tier 5 anymore.  To be clear any number of episodes less than 8 means no ROI on buying tier 8 premiums, tier 6+ is just not fun anymore outside of Frontline.

 

While you are at it better get some solid info out their on crew 2.0 as well because if that is as big of a train wreck as it sounds like their won't be much need for any premium regardless of tier.

They haven't yet figured a way to mess it up enough, give them time!

I'm assuming it's "we get there when we get there"

They already said SH is coming first so FL likely won't appear until the summer.

You have to have the boring tasteless main course before you can have dessert.

I guess they figure the drop-off in participation can be negated by making folks suffer up-front and save the fun for later.  I don't know why they can't simply add some variety by leap-frogging the event types.

Great so rather than adequate episodes of FL they will again be splitting time with that ridiculous SH mode...

Because it would make too damn much sense and be a little too logical.

I hated steel hunter.

After playing 20 matches in it I could no longer stand it.

I had an idea to improve frontline by using references to objects. if they are implementing it, they would have to redo all the objects on the map, and it might take a while plus testing. but it would reduce memory requirements, run on older computers, and improve map loading when you cross into a new zone, and save disk space on the drive.

 

so if when it comes the objects are redone, such as houses, then you know that is what they did. or if they add lots of new objects such as more bushes.
