Because earning credits is such a waste.

LoOl. WG is actually trying to say that Tech Tree tanks are also good. Everyone who has played 1 battle against those tanks knows all those premium tanks are flat out better than Tech Tree ones. Lorr 40t is way better than 50 100. Skorpion G far better than Borsig and I don't think I need to talk more about them. Btw nice joke with Ferdinand.

Some are. VK100 is very good if not the best HT. But it's too slow for the Frontline IMHO.

 

But some recommendations are way too optimistic.

I laughed so hard with this one!!! 

The articles get more and more entertaining!!!!

  • Ferdinand: "Best used to attack, not recommended for defence because they are prone to flanking"
  • ROFL. This makes absolutely zero sense.

If 2 tanks use the same crew, can you take both tanks into a game of frontilne?

As long one of them is not dead in the ballte probably. You need 3 tanks or more to play between tanks that have the same crew.

No ...

... when you get in the battle, all the tanks you will use must have their own crews ...

... and one crew cannot be in two tanks in the same time ...

... and once the battle starts, tanks without crew are not available for playing ...

... and you cannot go back to barracks, during the battle, to change the crews.

... here is the best tank for the Front-Line mod:

The first one is incorrect as it is not Soviet. And non-Soviet vehicles are not allowed to perform well, you see...

 

@Ontopic: I actually liked these articles. I think WG should write these more often.

 

But the "All other SPGs/LTs" bit? Tch... The disdain for these classes intensifies.

Comedy gold.

 

The first frontline was dominated by Scorpion G & progetto. This time it will be scorpion g, progetto, Caernarvon ax, IS3a, the many bulldogs & the Russian lt

I'll take 130PM to harass C spawn with camo :D 

 

But yeah fast is better generally. I didn't see much defenders, patriots and libertes.

Are WG deluding themselves into thinking people are going to use the underperforming regular tanks from the tech tree in this mode, when there's perfectly viable OP premiums to choose from?

 

Here's an actual list of the tanks you will meet in Frontline: premium tanks. Load and loads of premium tanks. And some french tank wheeled vehicles.

From the article:

"Punchy Heavy Tanks"   ... "VIII  IS-6  "

Is it a joke or what?

Last year i missed the first week mostly because i didn't know it had started and slightly because i wasn't sure if it was any good

 

but then i tried it first on another account to get free xp for wowp and just played mostly the T44 FL a lot and the T32 FL a tiny bit.........

 

then after i got into it, they released the Greydog, so i got one for my main account and spammed that and my JT 88 for the last 2 and a bit weeks

 

I hardly play wowp now so it's going to be my Greydog and JT 88 FTW :P:great:

My starting list: T-44, 110. Both are semi stock: stock radio and engines. Grinding tier 8 tanks in a tier 8 only mode is a brwath of reliëf from +2. My third tank wil probably be a premium for crew and Credit grinding

I mean the t10 is funny and all, but they actually recommend the AT15 for Frontline. Yeah one of the slowest and least manouverable tanks in the game is really what I want to play in Frontline.
