I must simply acclaim new Frontline mod.

 

After some probing and finally getting basics  ,suddenly,  after years of playing this game, I became aware that I  found myself in 9 square kilometers map, with tactical moves like in real war, and got that feeling of realism of tank battle for the First time.

 

Once more,and this is not a joke,  I am stunned by the immensity of maps, and by the realism of this battles.I find this to be significant advance for  this game , and in war gaming as a hall.,

 

And , as a lover of German tanks I must say also this,  now been German sniper truly is a worthy bussines, and pleasure.

 

Congratulations to Wargaming. I know many will not agree, but I hope we will get this mod as permanent option of playing this game for those who love it, and I am certainly one.

 

Its simply beautiful, realistic, vast, powerfull. When teams are good it is the closest thing to real tank warfare ever seen on computer.

 

That's it.

 

Thumbs up WG.

Not to bust your bubble but... pay's too much, you don't need prem ammo, makes randoms irrelevant, too much of a hit for potato pc's so pretty much you've lost half of the player base but yes it's a decent mode and that's why it will never be permanent because WG doesn't do "decent"

No clue why WG allowed arty into it. Just another way to ruin a game

Realism? Well I get more of that when I play BF1942 in a 60 vs 60 mode. Not here. Fun sure. But immersive and realistic? I got none of those vibes tbh.

Steady on. I would say that being reincarnated each time you die would make perfect sense to our Hindu chums... Although it should be noted that in the strict Vedic sense being reborn is a curse. True peace can only come from true extinction. 

I will probably feel the same when WOT finally does the decent thing and dies.

Come and see the violence inherent in the system.

"You see," resumed Laura, "I really have some grounds for supposing that my next incarnation will be in a lower organism. I shall be an animal of some kind. On the other hand, I haven't been a bad sort in my way, so I think I may count on being a nice animal, something elegant and lively, with a love of fun. An otter, perhaps."

     "I can't imagine you as an otter," said Amanda.

     "Well, I don't suppose you can imagine me as an angel, if it comes to that," said Laura.

     Amanda was silent. She couldn't.

Show me a man who doesn't like otters, and I'll show you a man who thinks 268v4s are balanced.

Same here. Seriously why the hell isn't it permanent? Or are they worried that if it was 24/7 all the tier 10s would run out of tier 8s too shoot at and be pushed into only having tier 9s and 10s in their matches.

On the evening preceding the day fixed for the hunt Amanda spent a solitary hour walking by the banks of the stream, making what she imagined to be hound noises. It was charitably supposed by those who overheard her performance, that she was practising for farmyard imitations at the forth-coming village entertainment.

     It was her friend and neighbour, Aurora Burret, who brought her news of the day's sport.

     "Pity you weren't out; we had quite a good day. We found at once, in the pool just below your garden."

     "Did you — kill?" asked Amanda.

     "Rather. A fine she-otter. Your husband got rather badly bitten in trying to 'tail it.' Poor beast, I felt quite sorry for it, it had such a human look in its eyes when it was killed. You'll call me silly, but do you know who the look reminded me of? My dear woman, what is the matter?"

It might be fun, but I would definitely not say that it's realistic.

 

  • Guns are still amazingly inaccurate. No, I'm not talking about the gunner, but about the gun itself.
  • Commanders are still unable to see anything past 445 meters. But they can see through bushes.
  • Tanks driving further away than 564 meters are still suddenly disappearing. God knows how Tiger tanks scored 2 km hits.

 

Etc etc etc ;)

Well RIP this game mode once WG realizes people can play German tanks properly.

 

Seriously, the goal of map design has been for past 5 years to remove all long distance tank engagements... which just happen to suit Russian tanks.

Agree! Needs some bugs fixed (FPS drop is a biggie) and some tweaking, but I was driving around yesterday with a feeling of: "Wait what?? I can actually pen stuff??" feeling. #feelsgoodman

Realistic i dont knowe, But after two night in a row whit Fronline. i must say i love it. Battlefield whit tanks :harp:  I realy like the fast pase and room to manover. Downside is, its to fast to do eny good platoonwork yet.

But it will com when all members on the platoon now the maps better and the flow of the game.

Well done WG.

Plz let it stay one tier only. So no +2 mm

 

Cheers 

Delta

​When playing in 9 square klilometers battlefield , compared to 0.8 square kilometers maps in  random mod  ,I really find  this as a big step in the direction of realism.

 

Players are still actually unaware of full potential of this maps and concept, maybe developer to?

 

For instance players still often hold on their sector, but after defending sector they could make pincer moves in other sectors.

This is awesome.This is real tactical situation.

 

If wargaming would take this mine advices we could turn this into something even bigger.

 

I am proposing WG here now, guys, make flanking manouvers worthy by giving slight flanking bonus to side that makes flanking.

Except that it isn't reincarnation. Your original tank's crew are all recovered after the battle as always. If it was reincarnation they would be long gone. Also your second tank's crew would be hard to explain since you are normally reincarnated as an infant, not as an adult with memories and training. 

 

Is the concept of reinforcements that difficult to grasp? :)

​Germans can finally engage on higher-end distances.

 

It makes them playable actually. For instance Panther II with L 100 8.8 cm gun. In random map is a joke, I hardly remember I saw this tank in random battle in recent months.

 

In this mod its competitive tank.

 

I hope Wagraming understands war was over almost 80 years ago and Germans will never attack again  so lets give little love to this machines by allowing them to work in their natural enviroment.

 

I mean  everyone drives German cars, Good this is not world of cars since German cars will be crap.

 

There is no  need for this. Let the Germans from the loose, its good for the game.
