Please, I don't wanna go back to fighting always higher tiers on corridor/city maps. It's so frustrating especially those damn stock-ish vehicles.

I have to *edit if I start to play randoms with every game beeing a pinata jailbat for tier 10s. I DOESN'T matter if there are some base-camping enemy tier 8 tanks that hide and camp no matter what.

 

Frontline was great and I hope the success shows WG that their [edited]MM is just pure *edit .
Is there even anybody around that likes that MM beeing always bottom? I mean tier 8 MM was considered the most balanced and fun tier to play but now it's just frustration and camping, and sniping and not beeing able to pen stuff and therefore use only premium ammo. God how can they sell this as a success.

 

Frontline showed that taking out frustration of beeing bottom tier or beeing killed makes playing much more fun (garage battles).

 

I don't think it would be mandatory to keep frontline permanent BUT take some of it's features and implement it i randoms!

 

Still can't get over how much *edit worse randoms are for tier 8 tanks than frontline...WG *edit LEARN!

 

Not bashed by tier 10 constantly: check
Easy credit farming: check
Respawn for far less frustration: check
Big interesting map for all vehicle classes: check
Fun objectives worth interactive gameplay: check
And so on.

 

Have fun ;-)

Too bad you can not make your point using normal words and language.

FL was fun. But still fairly linear and boring in the long run, as I've not touched it in two weeks. Even with the good credit and free XP boost. I want it back, but not until they add at least one more map so it's not the same boring stuff every round. They need to balance the points better. Like attacking B was rather easy. Defending it less so. And lets not get started about the spawn killing on C that always gets left first to become a 2 vs 10. As the mode still have plenty of flaws they need sorting out first IMO before a return. 

 

And I want it on a different tier too next time tbh. Or having it for more than one tier. As then I would play it more.

Well, easy credit farming is the reason is not a permanent mode I suspect for tier 8 for obvious reasons. And the map is the reason why it worked for tier 8, as even my CDC worked there. Even my IS-6 without gold ammo even. Can't say the same about those tanks in random equal tier games. But even so... I want FL to mix it up. If it was permanent with just tier 8 all the time on the one map. I suspect most would get bored of it rather fast.

Yeah it would get boring at a certain point. But WG should learn from the universal acclaim about frontline in what direction randoms should be developed more.

I almost want to give up on wot. I cannot stand that garbage MM system.
They need to fix it as soon as possible now that they showed us equal tier fights are so much fun.

Go back to randoms with T8s? You don't have to... I 've only played 4 random battles (in swed Leo) in the last 4 weeks. Despite the low fps and shortcomings I got to play tanks that had been gathering dust.

Next tier planned for destruction is Tier 9 I guess.

How so?

 

On topic, I agree with the OP in most points.

 

I haven't gone to FL lately as I have more Tier IXs to finish than VIIIs and the latter ones can wait and you can't finish the former outside randoms.

 

Although Tier IX is currently one of the best and suitable for balance lovers, those tanks are worthless since they have no CW, SH potential. For me, ofc.

 

But other tanks? Grand Battles are still too corridorised. Frontline only needs to be changed to a BattleFields-esque ticket system to avoid people throwing away their tanks. I understand the OP likes the economy in the Frontline but that needs to change also.

 

It's not healthy to have people earning tons of credits like that. For this particular occasion, since the mode is not final, sure. Absolutely.

 

As a permanent mode, I can see that creating numerous problems.

Maps feel so claustrophobic after FL. Relocating and flanking was so nice and refreshing in FL...

And thats precisely why frontline will never be a regular mode (unless they nerf the credit gain in the mode :D) and why the 3-5-7 is a great success according to WG :)

Tier 8; It ain’t no problem no more.

I grinded 5 tier 9 tanks from stock tier 8 during FL event. Sold all my tier 8’s. Profit.

As Balcora already mentioned it was interesting and fun for a few games but despite having "more space to play on" in the end it's still nothing more than a linear game since even though you can switch flanks by either spawning or driving it'S still corridors over corrisors with some flanking opportunities in between.

i dont want it to be permanent mode, but i would like it to be available fairly often. every other month meaby?

 

to mix tiers between seasons...(just no tier10, please, we dont need that)

 

tier9 or even 6/7 for some premium tank use. add 2-3 maps, and you have great mod.

Why not? What difference does it make... just don;t play it.

You want to vomit going back to randoms T8?

 

Can't be that bad, you win almost 10 more battles than I do for every 100 that we play...uncured hunger much? You are by definition not suffering OP.

The only tier 8 I play these days is the skorpion and strv....you don't have to worry about MM screwing you over since you red line anyway. anything else you're asking to get smacked.

I seem to be playing a lot less which given its summer is probably good.

FL was good I enjoyed it for a change but not sure If I would want to play it all the time without a few changes and more maps.

Much better than randoms at the moment.

 

Plan is to play Light tanks a lot maybe TDs too thats up to and including tier 8.

Then maybe a few tier 9 and 10 games.

Mostly its going to be a light tank game till something changes.
