For sure... this has brought a NEW lease of life back into the game....

This is more than "ranked battles for tier 8" ... my clan is possitively buzzing from it.....

DEV .. .. THIS NEEDS TO BECOME A GAME MODE RATHER THAN JUST AN EVENT! ..... do a player based poll and find out for yourselves...

It is like a new lease of life for WOT!!! BRAVO!!~

:great:

I agree and I still haven't played it yet. Simply looking at the list of things in the new mode is enough for me to get excited about the future prospects of the game and the amount of attention WG are still willing to give it.

 

Unfortunately you've chosen to post a positive thread on what's possibly the most negative forum this side of reddit but one day the participants of the echo chamber might peek outside. It's better to live in hope than drown in despair.

​I'm not sure, outside of the usual trolls, and those that work unusual hours, that there is much negativity on this subject... time will tell. I foresee that only having one map may make it a bit boring after a while, but that's some ways off I hope.

On this subject, I agree, I was talking in general.

I think this is a test to see how well a lot of the new stuff is received and some of the features may find their way into randoms. I suspect the mode will stay around in some form, though I'm not sure if it'll continue to be as well rewarded as it is currently. Although that might be a test too, see how the economy copes when people with tier 8 tanks suddenly aren't so credit-poor from high-tier play.

 

That's what I mean about being excited. No one's quite sure what it means for the game going forward but so much new content has got to be a positive sign. :)

After losing 80% of the FL games so far (be it attack or defence) I see more and more similarities with the Domination mode I used to play in CoD..

People dont seem to understand that if you push passed the cap first the enemy's spawn will move backward, further away from cap which makes it easier to cap. But most of the "&*^^*&^stay sit somewhere behind a rock ~50-150m in front of the objective and let you die if you try to cap or defend...

Oh, and don't start at the team compositions on fronts..people dont seem to look at that either so being outnumbered on a front 2-1 is not uncommon.

 

Maybe I'll try to reach lvl 30 one time but that's it for me I think.

Won't happen because randoms will just die... Why would they supply a mode that doesnt need gold ammo , pays you lots of money to play ?

I'm rarely negative about WoT, as I like the game, but on this I agree with Signal's cynicism.

No more gold ammo just premium for mountains of silver!

So guess that argument doesn't count anymore!

yeah it does, just because it cost silver now doesnt stop people buying "silver" at the shop or converting gold into credits.. same thing just wrapped in another cloak.

​Perhaps they could do it a seasonal thing, like with Ranked. I like Frontline and having it a few times per year would be nice.

What puzzles me is that after every "shaft" the player base of this game gets people are still under the illusion that WG do anything for the player?? For the last 7 years their business model has been extract as much cash as you can (it's a business I expect this) whilst wrapping the horrible stuff up in other names or transferring it to other areas and people still come on here and think they will ever do anything different. Perfect example of insanity..

Out of curiosity I just tried a game of Frontline.  Unbelievably boring and stupid.  Can't believe I just wasted 20 minutes to get 20K credits.

 

With randoms the games are quick and you don't have stupid spawns over endless maps with limited variety opposition.

 

First and last game of it for me.

Thats not how it worked at all on Common Test.

 

The silver income is very poor per minute played (remember games last longer).

 

However the experience gain is pretty decent.

 

So FL seems more balanced along the lines of grinding exp or crew exp and losing or hardly gaining silver income.

No offence but I was making at least 200k no boosters a battle and with boosters etc I've seen people making 900k.

We got an easy win, I killed a few, used only standard ammo, got 20K credits.  I can get lots more than that in a 5 minute low tier game, also I don't have to sit around twiddling my thumbs for spawn.

 

I'm glad that many like FL but for me it was painful.  One thing I always liked about WoT was that it didn't have cretinous spawn mechanics, and had quick games.  FL fails on both counts.

 

Just launched a second game by accident as I had forgotten to switch mode.  I managed to bear 3 minutes of it then deserted. Sue me.

How did you manage to earn so little?...serious question.

No idea. and can't really be bothered to find out.  If FL has replays I suppose I could dig it out, but I'm sure it would bore you

 

2K damage, 2K spots, 2 kills

 

81 credits. Minus 39 repairs and 18 ammo.  Net 23 credits

Premium ammo will be balanced in the next patch or so.
