So, WG say* that for 2019 Frontline, we'll be able to earn special points that can be used to obtain Frontline reward tanks. Then they say that they are planning 3 such tanks at tier 8 and one at tier 9. This is separate from the tanks for bonds, which will start in Spring with the FV215, Deathstar and Foch. So, I'm wondering if anyone has any thoughts what tanks might be in the pipeline for the Frontline rewards.

Have no idea but I wish they are proper tanks unlike the first ones from personal missions. Tier 9 especially interests me.

Hard to tell which tanks exactly but I'll guess the Tier 9 might be a Russian one (probably a heavy).

I read the title and my mind automatically added "walk into a bar" to the end of it.

 

Also tier 9 reward tank? Hope it's a good one... gief Frontline!

I´m sure WG has already a well balanced Soviet medium in stock... as we lack those.

Aufklärungspanzer V Panther is a tier 8...

A man can dream, at least.

When I read that the T-103 was the first to appear in my mind. As that tank was tested almost 2 years ago, went under the radar instantly along with the KV-4 KTTS. And now suddenly appeared on test again last week with new stats. 

 

On tier 9? Not much to go on there in terms of tested tanks that never did appear. You have the WZ-120G FT that is the only other tier 9 with a special tank status if you will.

I would play frontline 24/7 if that turned out to be the tier 9 reward if it had the same stats. Even if it's as repetitive and one-sided as it was the last time after a few days with it.

Don't really care about the tanks, but I'm afraid that, with the rewards, they'll make FL another nolife/tryhard mode.

Just let us have fun.

I don't care how good those tanks will be, if they are credit makers...

Reward tanks don't get increased credits.

This is my only concern.

People enjoyed FL because they could get away from the normal MM and it was fun. Adding reward vehicles will make people feel pressured to play it or do well in it so might lose the fun aspect

not gonna happen some of these like the T22 were removed for a reason and other are CW reward vehicles which would be unfair on those who grinded for them

T-22 medium was heavily nerfed. It was removed purely because of the rigging. It's now a pile of turd, it's the worst of all the russian meds.
