Did you have a point or was this just a public service announcement?

Sounds like a start of a bad joke. 8 Tanks walk into the Frontlines...

The point is that people still using the same tanks in the frontline mode like is almost limited to these tanks. I see rare a heavy or light tanks in FL mode.

I played much with the WZ 132 and Black Buldog.. Really nice tanks for the game mode I would say.

I actually find the old IS-6 to be not that bad in this mode, but I so prefer my EVEN, although I get killed in a snap should I get cocky and over-reach. However, for quick strafing runs this mode is heaven for an EVEN-driver! Enough map to actually GTFO and reload in safety! :great:

I had a game in M41 90 in frontlines where i did 14k Damage in that one tank and didnt die the whole game. Lights are fantastic in it due to the 3 Consumable things you can take. Inspire + Engineer + Arty strike is what i was using. worked a charm

If defending the JgdTiger 88 has found a use again.

 

 

I love this mode.

Notice a distinct lack of gold spamming in front line and its great to see you still get the odd Herbert spamming gold in in his defender but on the whole its clear players are using frontline to make money not waste it.

 

My credit record is 443721 using the M41-90 Progetto 46 and Scorpion G and Premium account and 50%extra credit for 2 hours i am averaging about 2.5 to 3 mill a night but i am playing near non stop from 4p till 11p nice to have the month off work Injured.

tl;dr:

imo, all tanks are workable in this mode. Rentals are "rather common", but no other tank really stands out

 

longer version:

I disagree slightly. Yes, the rental vehicles are everywhere (I had 50% rentals on both teams at the start of the match once), progettos are common too, probably bc it's a new vehicle. But other than those, there seems to be a good mix of all sorts of tanks around. I'd also say that premium tanks make up about 60ish percent of the non-rental tanks, but I expected that since most players seem to be grinding credits in this mode.

 

Personally, I'm on track to grind through 3 out of 4 tier 8s I have, namely the german, french and chinese light tanks. (Won't touch the GW Tiger P though, 9km² maps are not made for that vehicle)

The xp I get with reserves and the bonus from your in-battle rank really help the grinds, and tbh I like all three tanks and think they (and other lights ofc) are very good in frontlines. On a map this big with consumables that let every player shoot anywhere on the map vision is really important imo. The only thing that bugs me a little is the fact that I regret not buying the Blackdog during christmas even more now.

 

Since my selection of tier 8 premiums is very limited, I have to make due with what I got to compensate for the occasional gold spam on some random heavy. (VK100, Defender and such)

All I've got are the P Victoria, Progetto and T26E5, with rather poor crews (PVic doesn't even have SS as of now) but to my slight surprise, they work really well. Especially the PVic surprised me, I'm starting really like that thing.

I saw some rare tanks. Like KV-4, ISU-152, Centurion1, the french TD and so on... 

I'm using a lot KV-4 and ISU too, also because the 2 premium are a lie. It said it gains more money but that's not true! Feel more tricked than Cell in Portal 1!

I also see plenty of VK 100's, Mauerbrechers, O-Ho's, IS-3's and AMX 50 100's.

 

Played around with a couple of tanks I hadn't bothered driving out of the garage yet, like the T-34-2 and the Panther II and do a bit of stock grinding. The crews are good anyways. Also finished doing the SU-101 grind. Also find the Caernarvon pretty okay to work with once a front has been pinned down a bit. Also seen plenty of Centurions and Patriots. So far it's been plenty varied.

I bought back the kv4 for it, finding it very effective, my patriot works well too and have had some nice games with the new Italian premium.il use my t28 when defending especially late game.

never seen such a variety of tanks, and that is nice, not going against the usual every single time

Tried my Defender, it's still a tedious pile of boredom. Current favourites are the plain Patriot, Skorpion G and Black Dog depending on whether I'm attacking or defending and what's happening in the wider battle. Had a couple of good runs in the 112 and Spershing, they're ok when facing other tier 8s.

 

Biggest disappointment would be the Ravioli, the long reload and poor mobility aren't what you want on a lightly armoured medium on a big map.
