First and foremost, finally FL yaaaaaaaaayyyy, wait its not active til august....hm ok I guess i can wait one more month for the one mode i can play time wise (different timezone) and really emjoy the most !!!! Wait a min its Tier 9s WOW .... totally awesome dude, oh no its not its Tier 8 and tier 9s .... wthoh great thats fu**ed that one then. Wait let's see how it works.... That was the reaction to this announcement ! Here is what I think, like everyone else make FL same Tier like it was thats FL. Do as suggested already switch it up each month. Simple players will play it !

Here is what I will do with the game mode I love the most and always can't get enough of .... I wont play a single battle, no rewards, no joy fighting all those tier 9 reward tanks as its not FL anymore its no longer same tier. I sincerely hope everyone that disagree with the mixed tiers will do the same ! Tada and happy tanking ;)

Seriously WG, do you have an entire department that looks at what players love and says "Hey, we know how we can mess this up!!!!"

Sure seems like it with adding in tier 9.

I also disagree with limiting tank reserves to certain classes.

 

Tanks all have individual applications.

 

You are being dishonest with your intentions and forcing players to conform to your idea on how to play a tank.

 

A Ferdinand is not the same as a RHM. 

 

A T10 is really a medium.

 

Maybe I play an LT-432 as a damage dealer. 

 

Why is WG FORCING me to play MY TANK they way WG wants to me to play it?

ENGINEERING NERF (WG LIMITING PLAYER CHOICE)

 

Engineering was the most important tactical reserve for heavies, mediums and lights, but now only mediums can get it to level III.  Lights and Heavies can get it to level 1 easily, but they only can get it to level III if they make GENERAL. 

 

THIS IS A CLASSIC EXAMPLE OF WG HAVING NO IDEA HOW TO PLAY THE GAME. 

 

ENGINEERING WAS MOST IMPORTANT ON LIGHT TANKS AND HEAVIES, AND NOT HAS IMPORTANT ON MEDIUMS, TO BOTH CAPTURE BASES AND DEFEND THEM, BUT NOW WG IS FORCING PLAYERS IN LIGHTS AND HEAVIES TO USE IT TO ONLY LEVEL I UNLESS THEY MAKE GENERAL.

 

THIS IS A MASSIVE NERF TO LIGHTS AND HEAVIES AND TO ENGINEERING!!!!!!!!!

 

WG TRULY IS CLUELESS.

Everything sounded interested up until tier 9 vehicles. We all played frontline for same-tier MM that made it easy to make credits with less incentive to spam gold. Now you've gone and thrown that out the window.

can the discontent heard here, be passed UP to WGHQ? i know they wont care, but it would be nice to hear that they have gotten the info.

 

i liked FL because it was SINGLE TIER. i could offload all Prem ammo, and play a 3-4 Prem tank setup. i will try the same thing and see how seeing tier 9s will affect credits. after a bit, i will try some tech tree 9s.

 

we wanted FL as it was...we got 4 months of SH instead and this abomination. if i fail to accrue credits, i stop playing it. i dont need the BattlePass points from it.

Could you like... collect your thoughts, think about them, then write them out in a single post? You're making a new post every couple minutes and it's starting to border on spam. Pretty please.

I was excited when I saw tier 9 frontline but the way you guys did it blows.  Just make a week of frontline that is tier 8 and one that is tier 9.  No one wants the mash up.  Half the player base will keep playing tier 8s to grind credits.  The other half is chomping at the bit to grab their op reward tank and farm FTP players dumb enough to play stock tanks in this game mode.  It is going to lead to even more runaway teams. WG is just asking for a bad time by mixing it up. Good thing I dont need to play it at all.

SPAM or PASSION?

 

The problem is that WG loves to make everything so complex. 

 

Did you see that you can only get level 2 in certain reserves unless you make GENERAL and that WG is now limiting player choices so I can't have ENGINEERING on a light tank at level 3 at all and at level 2 only if I make general so effectively I can't have this on lights, but I played a lot of lights or would respawn in lights and then capture bases with ENGINEERING so WG has really changed the game DRAMATICALLY by FORCING players to use certain reserves on only certain classes of tanks. 

 

My question to you is why?   Why would WG do this?  Why limit player choice?

 

Is it because WG thinks players are STUPID and WG had to GUIDE us in the correct direction?

I agree. 

 

I would rather have a week of tier 8 and then a week of tier 9 and then a week of tier 8 and finish with a week of tier 9.

 

You are going to have players who refuse to play tier 9's and the team with more of them will certainly win the game because tier 9's are so much more powerful so it will RUIN the gameplay if one team goes full tier 9 and one team only goes 50% tier 9. 

 

What WG should do is once tier 9's are unlocked you can only then re-spawn in tier 9's.  That makes more sense.

Looked great until you realize that it will become spammed with concept 1bs and knzp 50t and other incredible tier 9's and that's it.  

 

It was a simple request, WG...keep it single tier.  Rotate tiers if you want, but keep it single tier.  

 

Have you even played FrontLine?

 

This was the carrot I've been waiting for to keep me interested.  You guys ruined clan wars, you ruined campaigns, you ruined this and that....Frontlines was the one thing that was keeping me interested here.  I'll check the mode out and, hell...I may even enjoy it.  I have some incredibly broken tier 9's I can play so....whatever?

 

In all seriousness, you probably ruined the mode.

 

Players asked to keep it 1 tier and bring more maps....we get multi tier with arguably the strongest pound for pound tier in the game and no new map that I'm aware of.  lolol

At the time of this post, 11/42 posts in this thread are from you, so I'm going to go with "Spam".

I was hoping you would limit the number of wheelies but with the addition of tier 9 tanks which I don't own, I suppose one day of frontline will probably be enough to drive me away from the mode. Thanks

I think the dude is EXTREMELY INTELLIGENT and I think his posts are all PERFECT, but I do think there have been a few to many, even though they are all BRILLIANT.  

 

I mean BRILLIANT.  This MrTanker58 guy is BRILLIANT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

BRILLIANT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

 

I am against tier 9's being added to Frontline.  

 

I am against multiple tiers in Frontline. 

 

I am against WG limiting certain reserves to certain classes of tanks and limiting player choice.

Thanks, bro.  I am glad you had my back.  They were bullying me, but you gave me the support and conviction I needed to not let them bully me off the world wide web/internets. 

 

WG, players paid money, CASH, and bought loot boxes, and did mission marathons to get tier 8 premiums to use in Frontline.  For WG to now change FRONTLINE that is a SLAP IN THE FACE TO THE PLAYERS.
