I feel dizzy. I'm not familiar with map and tempo is very high so I need to play it a while to get it.

 

Now I must buy M43 again...pfff.:arta:

I like it! Haven't even felt the need to fire a single goldshell in the gamemode yet! I would really like if it became permanent.

Needs some bugs fixed (FPS drop is a biggie) and some tweaking (cooldown is BS as well as the 1700-000hrs time limit), but my Tier 8s were dumbstruck in my first game: "Wait what?? I can actually pen stuff with regular ammo??" :amazed:

 

Oh, and with regards to the question: "Would you like to see other tiers being included for use in the Frontline battle mode?" I voted yes, but with the caveat that each tier gets their OWN Frontlines (T7 vs T7, T6 vs T6 etc). I think thats what you meant, but just wanted to clarify my own point of view on the question ;)

Yes, I think a large part of the enjoyment is +0 mm.  I should have been more clear on that question :/

I like the new mode, but by being limited to tier 8, it is kind of "conflicting" with all the grinds I currently do, especially considiering that my premium account is running out by the end of the month. Currently I am grinding Italian med P.43, American med T 20 and light  T 49, Russian med Obj. 430. Only tier 8 grind I currently do is the British med Centurion 1, actually reasonably well suited - just yesterday its crew gained another skill while playing Frontline.

But then again, it helps with some crew training and credit earing on premiums - most action have seen T26E5 training an American HT crew (that I don't really need right now, as I have not yet started an American HT tree - and now with the T32FL I actually have two crews...), Progetto 46, and especially Skorpion G training a new crew for JpE100 (already unlocked, but I like JTiger so much that I will keep the "main" TD crew on it - from all I heard and read, JpE100 is not as versatile as the JT for its tier).


 

I'd welcome it, if the mode was expanded to +0mm tier 7-10 battles - maybe tier 6 as well, but I am not sure of that - the lower the health pool of the tanks, the longer time the people will spend waiting for respawns; another issue would become the generally lower mobility the lower you go in tiers...

1. It would be nice to see it introduced permanently since so many people seem to like it. in the last 2 days I made about 8 mil cred by playing it, so it's a great cred earner aswell.

2. More availability could lead to longer queue times for random battles, so on servers with less people it might take too long to find a match but it would also give more people the chance to play the mode.

3. went from a solid 120 fps to 80 with turning down the graphics to low.

4. I think adding tier 9 and 10 would work. tier 1-7 are mostly based around tanks without armour, which I don't see fit for this mode.

5. For me the mode was kinda too easy, managed to get 18K dmg a few times. The fact that everyone can play the game even without having owned a tier 8 before influences this quite a lot. And it's a new mode, so people need time to adapt

Lets wait a week or two before drawing conclusions. Currently its fresh and new and many people have no clue how to play it. Once people get familiar with the map and how to use the consumables opinions might change quite a bit.

If you like the concept of non-standard, single-tier modes, it's not a bad idea to show support for it. I'd guess that it'll be less boring once players become a bit familiar with the mode. Kind of typical for new maps too, people play passively because they don't know the maps.

 

Remains to be seen if they can judge the popularity of the mode during the summertime, when player numbers are (as always) taking a dive. Don't really see any good arguments for Wargaming to keep it permanent, anyway.

Just think of grinding stock tier 8 tanks while not more than half the enemy team is driving tier 9 and 10 tanks.

Like mix a grind tank with some better well equipped/crewed tanks that do the bulk work of carrying you up the ranks for the Captain/Major/General EXP bonus.

As long as the FPS is fixed and the random battle mode still has plenty of players to match then YES.

This. Still didnt try frontline but it seems its good for grinding stock tier 8 tanks. Havent played game in month and a half but for this mode maybe i come back. How are credits without premium account?

Yeah, just leave it in. It is a good change of pace from the normal gameplay and I like it that is same tier matchmaking as well. Been playing light tanks mostly and that works pretty well.

You made a poll...and it was objective?! With non-weighted questions!? No double-barreled Questions?! And a Likert-Scale on some answers?! What forum am I on? Who are you? In all seriousness, this is one of the few good polls on this forum and an important one as well. Nicely done.
