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.

 

Yeah. People too busy trying to kill tanks in attacker mode.

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.

 

Sadly premium ammo is not gold ammo anymore, and is not shown as such in battle!

I don't like the change, can't feel valued anymore. It just was superb to get stuffed with gold by the enemy, made me feel I get the attention I deserve! Now with this silver, bah how cheap!

 

Not everybody needs gold to make silver - argument still doesn't count!

 

Btw. if one buys gold to turn it into silver to buy premium ammo, that someone clearly has some issues!

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

 

​2k damage in 20 minutes? Well there's your answer then. I'm sorry old man Drummond but that's really really bad.

Aaah... so that's why they removed the gold option. Now the premspam isn't visible anymore. Sneaky.

 

@topic: That new mode will definitely be a reason to fire up the game next weekend. It's the first time that there is so much positive vibe on a new gamemode...

Had 2 games

 

1 game 10k damage and made 200k profit

1 game 12.2k damage and made 250k profit

 

Good game mode, easy credits :)

 

Was annoyed in the 2nd game though, some RSOP dude got 100XP more than me so took all the medals with over 100 bonds so I only got 25 bonds :izmena:

Played 5 games last night but lost all, anyway made over 200k  credits per match. I like it and it should be permanent game mode. :)

Played 3 or 4 games last night. I agree with the OP: this should be a permanent thing. I am loving it. The rewards might have to be revised a bit if it becomes permanent, but I am really enjoying it. Gives my old "shot to pieces by tier 10 tanks" tier 8's a new lease on life so to speak, facing only same tier opponents.

 

I did notice that there is a big difference in profit depending on whether or not you have a premium account. In one game last night with my non-premium account I made 29K profit. If I had a premium account I would have made 79K profit. Not sure how that scales.


 

Regards, C.

Playing on a premium account with 50% credit booster and mainly with premium tanks (Progetto46, SkopG, T26E5; mixed with the only tree tank Centurion 1) I made yesterday ~200-400k credits per battle (7 or 8 battles total, I think, ~50:50 victory/defeat). Usually I end the battles at the Captain rank, though I also once made it to General (~600k in that battle, iirc). I have not noticed any significant bond "income" - I think only once I got like 5 bonds...

I know.  To be frank I found the whole thing so silly that I rather lost interest after 5 minutes and wasn't really trying, nor did I use any gold ammo, which might have helped.

I only play with Panther 8.8, Tiger II and BC 12-t and make around 150k to 200k after an Battle, i like this gamemode. A bit tactical deeper because of spawn system, switching attack/defend points and an bigger map.

It will be interesting to see if there will be any silent nerf of income in any micro patch that is coming ^^ bet there will be a forum thread of it anyways

It won't stay in the game. I'm using it to grind T8 tanks that I refuse to free xp or grind in randoms. Iike the cent 1 for instance I still have the Comets gun so spam gold in that and then when it dies the next tank is a prem with standard ammo to pay for the gold spam in the regular tanks. Still made 80k profit so using 2 grinders and 1 prem and still making decent credits, no way that gets to stay. The free xp on T8 would die a death as would the need to buy silver from the prem shop.

 

I'm going to try a prem only battle later with a booster to see what I can achieve. But I have 7 totally stock T8's that I refuse to grind in randoms to concentrate on so credit income isn't as important for me in this mode.

In my opinion reason why everybody loves frontline is simple...MM. MM for tier 8 is a hell since 3 5 7 introduction and in this mode there is only full tier 8 games. If this mode followed the same pattern as random mm and allowed tier 9 and 10 tanks i think that most people would hate this mode.

Not seeing tier 9 and 10 does highlight the difference in vehicles, I'll give it that.

The premium Chinese TD really shines here :)

Can’t imagine the horror, frontline with 6/10/14 mm :o

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.

 

Try flanking positions with something mobile. Its a fun mode - but I agree about the match lenght.. too long. It should be hard capped at 15 or maybe 20min.

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:

 

Yeah , and RIP tier VIII MM random.
