I dare not post this in other sections of the forum: I played several games of frontline mode yesterday in my FV207 (and some Lorraine 155 51) and must say: Wow. Very enjoyable and "fruitful". It really lets the range (distance you can fire) of artillery come in to play. Sit a square back behind a hill and get to work. First time I have seen the gray "out of range" line on my FV207.

 

Here's a question. I should try this when I get a chance: since there is no friendly fire in frontline mode, does that mean that as artillery players we can safely drop a shell in the middle of a clump of friendly and enemy tanks and affect (damage, stun) only the enemies and not harm our allies?


 

Regards, C.

Stun is not damage, so.... who knows. You could try a support ticket, or observe what happens in Frontline battles, or look at videos... or even just ask in the "pinned" thread in the Gameplay forum. Unsure why you don't ask there.... it's no big thing, SPGs attrack adverse comment, but have support too.

It still does stun friendlies.

 

Not sure about damage though since the friendlies weren't that close to the impact.

I enjoyed the Frontline in my FV207 and Lorr 51 is it? I bought the 207 back a couple of weeks back and the Frontline made me glad I did. Captain is my best on there so far.

I am really liking it, allways somewhere useful to shoot and when a cap is active you can really help.

 

My best game so far got General in the M40/M43 (click for replay)

I had a really bad game yesterday, the team just hung back, hardly pushed and so I was perennially spotted up, lost over 32000 credits!
