Is frontline that tier8 only borefest game mode where masses of random tomatoes ignore an even bigger minimap and you get spotted and artied by a game mode feature that only unicorns can unlock to use and about 5% of players even understand what's happening? Or is it the tier10 big map mode?

 

Frontline is the tier 8 one, but I'd disagree with the rest. You unlock the features as you progress through the levels - reaching level 5 gives you 5 tokens, so you can buy 5 different mechanisms at the basic level, or one mechanism at the highest level. If you reach Captain or Major that's enough to reach level 4 or 5 in your first battle - I reached level 30 in 6 battles at the weekend, and I'm certainly no unicorn. The bottom line is that no matter how bad you are, you can make progress in this mode.

Last weekend? So this game mode is currently up and running? I didn't see the option in the game mode menu. Ya each to their own I suppose. I was one of the few that didn't really enjoy Frontline when I played it. It just seemed to exaggerate some of the bad points of this game. Same tier battles is great, 10/10 for that and 10/10 for WG exploring new and innovative game modes on bigger maps but ya the bad things in this game were just heightened imo.

2018 Frontline was made by external company AFAIK, not WG.

Rumours goes 2019 Frontline has supposedly nerfed xp and credit income as well as heavy monetization. That's WG for You, chap.

No, the xp and credit gain are exactly the same as before, you can still use your own premium / tech tree tanks, however you can now rent 2 premium (?) tanks for (5 G) or the T44 FL for 100 credits, (per battle)

The 5 gold and 100 credits is just a place holder for now. It will change when the real deal comes.

this should be inserted permanently,
gives little diversity to the game.

The test client already has a low population fill, having multiple game modes would cause even more issues. Having this at set times encourages people to "funnel" into the queue at set times and have a concentrated population. 

 

Do you realize that the test server has low pop cause the only thing interesting in there right now is the Frontline mode ? I mena, not you, but WG.

 

With Frontline mode on, 22k players were always there, drop that and players go to 5k barely and then nighttime comes on and its even below that.

 

But hey. Randoms suck so much appendage, population is constantly lowering, yes lets keep +2/-2 MM and lets keep telling Quickybaby to advertise that as a good thing instead than inserting Frontline permanently maybe reducing the income it gives.

I wish they would have implemented a chance to accomplish 15th mission of the first personal mission campaigns in Frontlines mode. It feels so frustrating and impossible to achieve those last missions randoms because matches are so imbalanced and end too quickly.

Generally, the test server is low populated because of the way test servers involve a lot of additional work and don't give you benefits on your main account. I know the most engaged go to the test server or try out the premium tanks. 

 

Part of the frontline test is to make sure the optimisation changes work and other missions track with the game mode etc.

No, or you wouldn't be able to get enough to buy the top tank, let alone 2 vehicles. You'll have to wait for the detailed announcement of the rules to see the final breakdown on all rewards.
