10k dmg made General...bounced roughly half my shots because I'm trying to use standard ammo against OP tier 9 armor tanks.  Would have been solid credit earnings but they got chewed up in bounces...because you know...people asked for tier 9's in FL.

 

yea, you can't play tier 8's in Frontline against tier 9's.  At long range tier 9's CRUSH tier 8's with DPM, armor and MUCH higher standard PEN.

 

Frontline is not randoms were you can side-scrap and do other things and slow play a Defender against a M103.  In Frontline, the attackers are pushing so you either sit there against a M103 and do nothing and make no credits, or you push it and get killed, or on defense he just rolls over you and auto-pens with more DPM and ALPHA while you struggle to pen him.   

 

I was also just in a game with a T95 defending one objective and a Tortoise defending another.  WG has not through through the MASSIVE armor difference between tier 8 and 9.  No other tier has such a huge armor difference, but tier 9 is when you see the massively armored tanks like T95, Tortoise, Jagtiger and that is just TDS and then you have T54, E50, and then the tier 9 heavies are a massive armor upgrade over tier 8's.

Well the ONLY appeal to this mode for me has been the ability to grind credits.  Wargaming knows this and is trying to limit our ability to earn credits.  Its a really sad and obvious ploy.  Maybe wargaming you should be more honest.  You say there is no dedicated mode for tier 9s.  Well there is no mode for tier 7s either, but you didn't add them.  By the way putting in tier 9s doesn't make it a "dedicated mode for tier 9" either.  But that wasn't your real reason.   Be honest.  You want us to make less credits in FL so we will buy more credits with cash.  I really get tired of the smoke and mirrors.  Why don't you just change the credit earning quietly like you have done for about the past six years.  You slowly have made this game about buying credits.  It used to be about experience then you gave us so many experience boosts like blueprints and x5 missions etc.  I hope I'm not the only one that has noticed you have been lowering the credits we earn in battle.  Its quite annoying and frankly it makes you all look stupid, which I think you must be to think we all will buy the propaganda.  I will play the mode but I will keep playing my tier 8s and when the tier 9s get in the fight I will just take a break because thankfully it isn't about winning its about earning credits and I'll not let you change my goal in the mode.

The key I'm finding is loadout your tanks exactly as if you were running a FL game circa 2018. Don't load any extra premium ammo. I ran my tier 9 scouts as flank support tanks and only shot standard and did the same with tier 8-9 lights and mediums. On a non premium account I grossed about 60-70K credits and still made captain to general a number of times. 

Running any tier 8 tech tree tank, even mid grind will make you pull out your hair. So much for grinding abysmal tier 8s with FL's all tier 8 MM.

I don't understand why this company flat refuses to listen to players, and then consistently introduces changes that not only were NOT asked for but often make the current situation worse.

WG what is wrong with you, stop pushing everyone away. Too many players love the base/idea of this game...just stop changing things no one asked for and start changing things they do.

I dont see the appeal to this game mode, i played the test and its not fun plus you barely make any credits or even lose some for a half hour game time. The differences between tier 8 and 9 is even larger in this mode with long distance shooting and armor.

This is what WG thought was a great idea.  

 

We all know why they brought tier 9 into FL but Orzy confirms it pretty well here.  Straight go to hell, WG.  

 

Gneiss has never played FL so I'm sure all these changes are perfectly fine for them...if they played the game that is.  I'm sure our concerns are properly understood and expressed.

 

Screw 2.0 is still trash as well....but I dont expect OP to have any clue why.

 limit the tier 9 vehicle to 1 vehicle, give it a higher tank reserve time limit, don't let people use it @ start of battle and first respawn....

or simply leave it single tier and solve all the problems?

 

Edit:  Seriously, I dont even want to play the test any more.  Its just not fun and seeing that I'll make a fraction of the credits I was making before...WG will have effectively killed the mode if they do this.

Anyone surprised that they managed to truly mess up a GREAT mode and format ?    Not me.      Besides the mechanics everyone in the thread is discussing, in reality the rewards are pathetic and the idea that we need battle pass points from FL to complete BP stages is really a massive mistake in math.  So,  we are going to waste our time in mode that does not deliver any meaningful rewards and I'm guess few credits that worth the time investment.    Just play randoms in Tier 10 to complete daily missions along with earning bonds and in effect you get a better return on your time investment.

Super happy to see WG listened to the players again..../s

 

So tier 9's are 100% coming this FL...so the 'test' wasn't to get feedback but to make sure the buttons worked.  Typical WG.

 

I'll be uninstalling soon.  WG truly don't listen to anything.

 

Fully expect crew 2.0 to come as well, people.

Hey bro, the only people they listen to speak russian.  Even though the NA pretty much just pays all the bills, for all servers, we get crapped on because we are not the dominant server.  WG has never cared about us since so many players rebelled, un-installed, and stopped playing this shell of a real game.

 It wil be interesting to see who uses the tier IX tanks .  wot  need to add FRONLINE as a monthly option to clan Wars as it is  CLAN WARS IS FOR big money  clans and .tournaments.

 NUBIES and small clans and paying plyers who only play for fun deserve  FROTNLIE. 

THANKS FOR IMPORMENT IN GAME. AND I HOPE THE BLACK MARKET RETURNS ALSO 

/ WOT is the best task game on line

Thanks , EVIL_ROY_ ARTYMAN

My idea on the biggest problem with FL is there is no incentive to win just farm points how stupid.

nobody wanted tier 9s in frontline. if anything we asked to play different tiers as in the entire game was only tier 9 or only tier 10 not mixing tier 9s with the 8s in frontline. i play frontline to get away from fighting against higher tiers and making credits. i dont know anybody who is happy about this change.

 


I agree. Exactly that. More fun to keep the playing field level. ONLY tier 8's.
