Do you like new Frontlines? I love it :D But I'm interested in your opinion. What do you like, what you don't like?

The big map is nice, and unlike Grand battles things do spread out a bit but the battles take too long for me and there is a lack of variety, it really needs more maps.

 

At times the players let it down.  I get the distinct impression that defenders deliberately lose checkpoints in order to extend the battle time to get more exp or whatever.  It's a bit frustrating to be defending a point and suddenly your team mates are totally ignoring it.

 

I don't think the extra artillery and airstrikes are needed, even though they now do hardly anything.

 

And I don't like the lack of variety of tanks taking part.

 

It's nice that they extended the time window though so I had the chance to try it out.  I do feel the two hours would have been more fun playing tanks I want to play in randoms instead though.

Oh and the map ping spamming is epidemic.

I do like Frontlines, despite it making it clear this game became P2W.

You are being too kind to those inept creatures. If the defending team loses checkpoint after checkpoint, it means that it will lose the turrets as well.

How? If anything I see the opposite. I don't need to shoot gold at anyone because my LT can flank, my MT can support, my HT can bully corners, my SPG can take out snipers and my TD can snipe. All my tanks can do what I want them to.

 

I hope they leave FL on forever, and I'll never go up to T10.

 

And also +/-0 matchmaking, only T8 is what makes this awesome!

Not really, especially if they work it so they lose A B C just as the timer is about to run out.  The number I see won in overtime is suspicious to say the least.  I see it on attack too, suddenly a heavily defended checkpoint is a walkover.

 

There should be a bonus for a complete defence (losing no checkpoints).

The OP is creative, rather produce something than orginal.

New generation of premiums (OP ones) dominate.

Everything you said, you'd be more effective driving one of new not-yet-power-crept premiums.

You have been luckier with defending teams than I have. Maybe things will improve as days go by.

Only played it twice so still trying to learn the maps and playstyle. But it's refreshing to have different naps to play on.

One battle is too long, only one map. It reminds me for War Thunder, I stopped playing it for similar reasons. Usually I have only around 15 minutes to play. And even if I have 1 free hour, I still want to wake up in every 10-15 minutes from the computer. You know, pipe, beer, pee, child, wife, etc.

No hard feeling but says the player with Strv S1, skorp G, 130, lorraine, 130pm, defender, is3a, ...

Just what happened to your progetto ;) ?

To all those disliking Frontline : you can go back to random battles playing against T10 for all we care. Enjoy Type 5 division in your T8 tanks :).

Frontline may have some problems, but I'm shocked I don't need to play constantly vs T10 in my T8 tanks - so I just cannot dislike it.

 

Wish we had mode that let us play in full T8 format accessible 24/7.

 

Lets be honest MM is broken even WG admit it - but FT shows that this game can be fun where your tank isnt just cannon fodder in games.

It's really the first time I'm playing Frontline and it's quite nice. I'm not sure how fast the ranking system is (seemed a bit slow yesterday with average results), but it's very fun. The map is so big that sometimes you may find yourself flanked without warning. 

I've done some stupid mistakes and didn't manage to exit the captured area in time. Oh boy.. 

 

So yeah it's very relaxing, and it does not count the victory/loss or stats (which I care about), so  you can do whatever (although teamwork is useful)

for me its the first frontline and i kind of like it...

What i dont like is that as someone who doesnt have many t8 tanks, playing against 70% the same few cancertanks is pretty bad, nr 1 takes the progetto.
Other than the fact of how unbalanced the individual tanks actually are  and how obvious it becomes in frontline its a pretty cool gamemode

as a light and medium player i also like the size of the map, i wish there was more bigger maps in random battles, most of the maps are stupidly small and/or narrow., whats even the point of having light tanks in the game when half of the maps are pretty much unplayable apart from the enemy also having the same amount of light tanks. nice "balance"

Yes, it is fine, but i think it gets boring and repetitive after couple of hours. It is the same map, and most of the people dont even bother to read the rules.

No, old FL have fun now new FL is more to noobs and by sniping = scared noobs refuse to cap. Wasting time for nothing 10 min in battle and not even passing the first zone sound FL need to remove rental tanks and you get better players who has experience in tier 8 tanks. Now 30% of the players who play FL don't have experience in tier 8 battles.

The rental tanks were free in the old version.
