Frontline made WoT feel fresh. After it is gone, game feels (even more) dull. 

Just bring it back ASAP.

Tho I agree. I don't mind it being away for a bit to fix the issues it had, inc the C spawn killing etc. Or the objective issues. As you could kill 4 from 5 lane, 2 from the 3 hill after it was taken. 5 was at an angle towards the red line, so you could hit it standing near the train yard and no one could counter you. That.. and add more tiers to it just to mix it up. Still keeping +0 ofc.  

 

Tho considering the ranked season 2 badges are up. I doubt it will appear again soon. As we have football mode now, and then ranked starting after that I suspect.

Agreed, give it back. playing tier 8 is a total *edited*show and needs to be abolished. just give me back Front Line. i dont even care about the terrible FPS or C cap being bad. it sucks but its still 1000% better than random tier 8's

Why don't we let WG improve FL and give it more maps before it returns?

 

FL is very nice, would play it again (99999999999999999999999OMG9999999999/10). Would only play it, really.

 

But it needs to have its economy fixed and some other issues. Then, yes please. :)

Frontline seems really out of place in WoT. Both for MM-related reasons and 'ecosystem' reasons. Playing T8 to grind credits doesn't mean feeding T10s anymore.

 

I could see it return, but not as a mode for credit grinding at T8. Guessing there were technical (and balancing) reasons why it wasn't a T10 mode like originally planned.

 

(A semi-annual credit grinding opportunity might be a thing too, keeping us interested in the game before the summer starts and when there are other good games coming out. FL in the summer, Christmas bonuses in the winter.)

improve? i think you mean nerf. FL awarded too many credits and premium ammo use will have decreased rapidly because 8s were not facing 10s as per usual.

How so exactly?

 

It's worth pointing out that the credit gain in Frontline was only very good if you combined boosters with premium tanks and playing decently well. If you drop one of those factors, your gains diminish fast. I can see how MM in Frontline feels out of place, because for a change tier 8 wasn't getting shafted. And it feels really weird not to get shafted.

 

Not feeding tier 10s however makes perfect sense from Wargaming's business model. Tier 10 is supposed to be the loss tier. Reducing its feeding on easy targets, decreases credit gains for tier 10 players.

I wouldnt mind that adjustment at all. 

 

I get why many players played their premium tanks a lot, and I saw a number that I dont usually encounter in randoms, but the (stock) grinding of regular tanks is what made FL great primarily to me.

 

Playing some tier 8 tanks in the current meta fully researched or even worse: stock, is horrible when you are bottom tier all the time. playing only against other tier 8s in FL at least give me a feeling I can pen stuff without the use of premium rounds and still be competitive. So much to hate about grinding regular tier 8 tanks now ...

True. Bongfish did it, right.

Fed up of people demanding nerf's, yes we want FL back, but would it get boring if it was a permanent addition to the game, as a way to grind no premium tanks it was useful, I enjoyed it thats for sure.

Same here. The only grind I had was the Italian MT. Unlocked the Pantera while FL was rolling, bought it, went to FL with with it stock and elited it before FL was over. That felt quite strange, I have to admit.

Is FL not a permanent new mode?

AFAIK, Frontline will be a permanent mode with more than one map later on. If not, WG will be maing a huge mistake.

 

FL was the only thing that could convince my non tank-obsessed friends play WoT with me. When FL shut down, they went right back to playing CS:GO, Rocket League, Battlefield, COD etc. that offer a lot more fun and action
