I have a sneaking suspicion that Frontlines this year will not be played soley on Tier 8. Would this be good or bad? Lots on here are eagerly awaiting the mode to grind T8s. They might be disappointed. Have WG ever stated that it will be on T8? What do you think?

Judging from the common test, it will be tier 8 :)

But does that mean that the subsequent "episodes" will also be T8?

I suspect so. As they have talked about wanting to have FL on other tiers later down the road. But nothing confirmed or hinted of it now this round. Tho the first videos of FL when it was announced and tested was with tier X.  So how knows for next season or later.

For those who have played frontlines on live servers and the ones on CT, is the lag as visible on the live servers when it hits? I know CT lags more but in randoms I hardly notice it. FL was a completely new level of lag.

I had some almost comical stuff happening with tanks making funny dances when I tried FL on the CT server today.

if its not tier 8 it would have to be 9 or 10

 

But i think they will keep it tier 8 because you can rent prem tanks now for FL  with gold (if i am right)..and there are no tier 9 or 10 prem tanks.

So it got to be tier 8.....lower tiers wont work i think.

I played FL on the CT constantly for several hours yesterday and only had one minor lag episode during that time. I missed FL on live last time round so thought i should try and get to grips with the mode and map. Can't wait for it to hit live :)

I tried it again later and it was much better. Maybe it was just some hickups at the time I was playing.

The problem is, it siphons tier VIII tanks out of randoms, making the mm even worse.

But playing Frontline with stupidly balanced tier X tanks would be a nightmare - tier VIIIs are balanced WAY better.
