Jeez man,

cant you just have it as an option for Tier 8's instead of random battles for Tier 8 and there very broken T10 over-power match making?

most would play ALL the time it would be far more successful than you may think

 

Then ~ all those endless Tier 8 Premiums you force down our throats would actually make some GOOD sense a very strong reason to buy them 

or even more of them - for 'Frontline Road to actually having Fun' in WOT

 

Private Corporal ~ General ranks (T10 crap again)  and all that Rank battle crap as 75% of players simply don't have time for 'Limited time missions'

most of us do NOT have 12+ hours a day 7 days a week available ~ some don't even WANT to play that often (gets boring on so few Maps

 

don't turn it into a completion Only thing   .... I can see WG you already have doubts, maybe TRY a different less 'time limited' completion only approach

So much promise... and as usual they have to ruin it.

 

Firstly making it tier VIII. Well, its kinda ok, would love to finally be able to play my tier VIIIs again. But itll ruin mm even more.

Never understood why they never make anything for tier IX, in my opinion the most balanced tier in the game. But no, they are just tanks to complete and get the X.

And an event? For a month? Struggling to play the game anymore, thought this could be cool to get into the game again, but for a month? No ty.

 

Plz dont make it a event, make it a so you can make a choice between randoms and frontline..

the 30 stages with reward system sounds very nice. gives us a reason to play that mode and grind for something

2 special tanks. Please NO! We already had those special tanks and events, and it was retarded. I want to play my tier 8 and premium tanks, and not some stupid (and only 2) special tanks. I will not waste my time on this garbage mode.

its not only special tanks. you can play any tier 8 tank and you get 2 random tier 8's for people that dont have any tier 8

True that tiers VII and especially IX are great tiers, no one but WG despise them.

This 6 / 8 / 10 obsession always seemed very weird.

This ^^

 

and the descriptions and vids of frontline always seemed like potato brawling to me

 

and if you have to queue for normal randoms as well, then no thanks

Finally, not only we will get decent sized map for tank battle, but also tier 8 tanks getting some love, guaranteed same tier mm for tier 8 tanks.
(3/5/7 mm is pain, nearly all tank tiers struggle with it, except 10 and 9 tiers, because their performance really spikes up with rocked speed)

 

But then again, happiness will not be permanent? "EVENT" huh?

Because it is in test state?

Or wargaming want to keep it as ?EVENT? so they can occasionally switch tank tier for game mode?

And i was hoping it would be a fun mode to farm creds with your premiums without having to be bottom tier all the time but nope! Standard only! WG fears it would make us too rich i guess...
Still i look forward to it, especially if the rewards are good.

Can someone point me to game details for frontline?

How does tank rotation work when you die? Is xp distrubuted between tanks? Seems like a nice way to grind tier 8 tanks, which, especially stock/low skill crew is unbearable in randoms

 

Edit: nevermind, found it
