Just trying to gauge what is going on.   For me, the fact that there aren't any stats for Frontline hasn't made me care any less about trying to win, but some talk on the subject seems to indicate this isn't true for everyone.

Credits.

Already made like 20 million in Fl.

clan boost+personal credit boost gives in good games 700k in profit.

Well, I like winning. I do enjoy the other aspects in it, too. It's refreshing to have this mode and I kinda wish it would stay in some kind of form. I don't mind the credits and I do also stock grind any tanks that are in need of stock grinding.

Grinding tanks would also be a good idea, but all tier 8 tanks I'm grinding are slow, and I can't play with the St. Turdmil

Mostly having fun, it's a bit more relaxed than randoms. And of course I try to win, but when attacking you're heavily dependent on your team, so I usually just play for fun, try to do as much damage in and around the objectives and have a good time.

I'm just playing it for fun.

Winning is nice, but a good well fought and close battle is better.

Same goes for xp and credits.

It a fare more relaxed gamemode that randoms

Over a time i see less fun in this mode as more players focus on camping and gaining EXP or Credits instead of on focusing to accomplish objectives which are main goals of this mode and exp, credits and etc are just additional benefits of playing this mode.

 

Although this mode is a something fresh at the end it is a failure as the main goals become secondary.

Mine would be Pristige Points, it counts as EXP/Winning so its a 3-in-1 combo. sadly i cant level or pristige anymore, got my 1k bonds and maxed out of leveling.

Earning credits.

 

Since there  is no extra rewards for winning it's not vital.

Don't matter what your objective is. The longer the game lasts, the more XP, credits or prestige you can get. Thus defending all 3 early on won't give much of anything. As a 10K damage game on a loss defending the guns, is still better then barely getting 3K damage defending and hardly seeing anyone.

 

Tho personally I farm credits and play a few recently bought tier 8's to get them out of their stock grind. I've gotten the T32 and Emil I up with the gun, track and engine. And bought the Pershing today to do the same. Prestige is just a bonus

Winning.

 

Everthing else is a bonus.

I gave up on winning, most of the time you get Defender teams who like to hang so far back from the objectives that you have no chance, and as Attackers the same repeats...nobody defends the cappers. So I go for experience.

Had to think this over, as it really depends on how the game evolves. FL mode is fun & hence I play it. Early on in matches I gun for presitge points, mainly by capping/defending the starting points. If it all goes smooth, I start focusing more on the objectives & going for a win, or at least see how close I can get to one.

If the teams I'm on is rather static, I usually shift my focus to having fun & continue to gather prestige points for that juicy XP rank bonus.

Winning the game is my primary objective. However, FL is a great opportunity to earn credits and to accumulate experience. IMHO, FL makes T8 premium tanks worthwhile (again). I really hope this mode is here to stay and will receive new maps.

I want to win, but only managed to get confused so far. Too much info going on for my old eyes...

For me it's mostly fun tbh.

Althoug FL gives me a lot of things I need. I had 4 tier 9s I wanted to grind (3/4 finished) and buy (2/4), My Primo Victoria and Progetto had their standard crews (BiA only in the PVic and no skills exept for the girl-commander in the Progetto). Also, new camo-patterns, medals and bonds are always nice to have. All in all I have to say I enjoy FL very much, might even stop some future grinds at tier 8 just to grind them outside of the constant tier10 MM.

The only thing I don't like about this mode is the fact that I do regret skipping the opportunity to get the blackdog during the advent offers even more now...

been "grinding" the Object 416 in this mode.

it is fully researched tho, so no harm is done to my team :)

 

and it is actually quite fun to play once you get more experience driving it.
