Keep 9km2 maps, thats the main selling point for the gamemode for me atleast.

30 x 30 players

 

Really does need the 3km x 3km Frontline map

-  or its just another close-in-brawling- no brain- dumbed down mode of which I have zero interest in and will not play especially at T10

 

1.2km x 1.2km and 1,4km x 1.4km are the best size for normal 15 x 15 battles in Random battles and would be very welcome and excellent news, pretty please

which btw, should already be in the current game in Random Battles
 

not some 'special new T10' only game

stop ignoring the main 90% of players that will not and don't play Tier 10

Be interesting to see the game mode on a smaller map, 30 a side might be a little crowded especially as respawns keep numbers high well into the game but we will see.

 

I liked the 3x3 map idea but smaller maps would make the game mode work with lower tier tanks opening it up to a larger player base and probably make designing maps easier.

 

See you tomorrow

WG listen to what this guy says. What he says is exactly how I feel about this. Plz listen to the people who like Frontline the way it was with tier X tanks only. It's a mistake to change it into some kind of oversized random gamemode. I don't know what he means with the last 2 lines, but I prefer Frontline to stay tier X only, so that I can wipe the dust off my tier X tanks and actually use them for something. WoT needs end-game content and tier X is just not very appealing to play for me because there is nothing to grind for. I wanna see Frontline as an end-game gamemode for tier X only.

Gremlin, there are no respawns or repairs in this gamemode. It's just an oversized random gamemode which will be even harder to be sneaky in than Fiery Salient.

Eeeehm, then maybe GET a tier X tank? Maybe that's what this gamemode is for? Motivate people to GET a tier X tank?

I guess 20 vs 20 would be better for maps this size... but I welcome. Encounter and standard games are closer to optimal. First iteration of Frontline is way too complex as-is and hardly will stimulate enough of players to join in.

As much as I liked the 3x3 km map, I really don't think it is going to work in the long run for two main reasons: finding players who want to play, who have the right selection of tanks and heavies being too slow.

Having larger maps with the same old modes is a better idea, because the game has been built around the "one tank one battle" concept.

Frontline is an anti-flea treatment for cats and dogs where I come from. 

I will reserve final judgment on this until I've played it, but the videos I have seen don't inspire me. Put some effort into developing new maps (without deleting others) for existing 15v15 random battles, and I would be a lot happier. Is it really too much to ask? Or can we expect another 15 new premium vehicles with ever better armour instead?

I would say, and of course others will disagree - take your core game first, and make it better. You don't need anything else. 

PS - what is the obsession in the game for "fast-paced battles"? As an adult, I like games where I have to try and outthink opponents, and if that takes time, so much the better. Oh, of course, longer games make you less money....

It would be nice to see this available on lower tiers as well because tier 10 does not interest me as much and isn't as fun as other tiers, mainly because no progression (I enjoy grinding), too expensive plus everyone just fires premium all the time, so what's the point?

Image result for frontline

The cat in this picture has excellent camo, and great vision, but poor armour. Sadly, it has recently been outclassed by WG's new premium hamsters.

What if people just aint interested in that tier, like me for example?

I second this, would much rather new maps over anything else they have to add

Kills ticks!, i'd better not play the mode then:ohmy::trollface:

"miraculous fix, a new mm that is more fair and balanced and no more one shots from arty, come back and try it"

 

Neither of those things are why i left :D
