Those guys who don't have any T8 of their own are so bad that even if they had 200 T8 tanks it wouldn't make a difference since they don't know how to play. I think you're better off without them because they might keep blocking you, pushing you, etc. They also don't have any good crew so can't spot anything either. WG should not let anyone without at least 4~5 T8 of their own play this mode but then again as some guy in this thread pointed out, WG's is trying to make them feel frustrated so they pay gold to rent more tanks.

Sorry I do not discuss with toxics. I guess you are the one who pings at map at randoms ^^

 

That is an excellent argument, the sound reasoning of your rebuttal combined with the undeniable evidence provided will surely cause me to reconsider my statements.

 

:facepalm:

To give incentive to such players to buy T8 premium.

Duh.

Why they don't just call it Premium Frontlines and then there would be no confusion.

You are missing the point.

 

I dont care if they buy or rent it. Good for them.

 

But if they only have 1 tank for tier 8, when they die the team is minus 1 player till the cooldown is finshed.

 

So either give 3 free rental to everyone, or close the queue for player < 3 tier 8 in garage.

 

Buying or renting is not my problem, at least they will tanks to play with.

 

Or don't get killed in the first place?

i only have 2 tanks, well 3 but i dont like the jagdpanzer so all im left with is the t-54 prototype and the rented t-44, yes i cant yolo as much but with 2 tanks its totally fine if you can stay alive for longer than 3-4 minutes.

Removing the tank respawn time would just show more blatantly how much of advantage some tanks have over others.

It's fair to let people at least try the mode and it might encourage them to grind more tier 8s over time. At the same time you don't know if a person can go the whole game without dying once!

It is great to see so many opinions, some that maybe i didn't consider before, and hopefully same for others.

 

Yes, i suppose it is very situational and I am not saying that any of you are wrong in your statements.

 

But I invite you to check the battle score at the end of frontlines and you will see the bottom scorers are the 1 tier 8 players.

 

And as a response to statistics and probabilities, they work when you look at them in big volumes. That doesn't mean you wont have a battle where 15/30 players only have 1 tier 8 tank and the other team only 2/30. Same thing can be confirmed by xvm players, where although you would say on average the number of tomatoes you have in your team is the same as the enemy, that is not always the case. e.g. if you look at a pot of 1000 battles, maybe. if you look at the small picture, you might get 11 loses in a row because your team mates were really  unfamiliar with the game mechanics.

 

As to getting people to buy stuff, people will buy stuff anyway. If you tickle their fancy they will. I have in the region of 120 premium vehicles, almost all of them purchased, and i keep doing so because i really enjoy the game. It is other elements that made me love the game, not 1 rental for Frontline

 

PS: yeah yeah i know they are digital goods that give me nothing in real life, and WG has a truckload of money, i heard all this before and i am ok with that. I applaud them for creating a massive game company, i applaud the team that create this. Don't get me wrong, I am still angry when they mess up the sillies thing (like frontline 2000 people in the queue).

 

Good luck out there,

Rob
