Who said you couldn't play light tanks and wheeled vehicles in Frontline?

So that's what the "C" stands for in ELC .... it all makes sense now!

WG: Hmmm, players had fun and made a ton of credits in Frontline, and this is hurting our income. So how can we ruin the mode?

Random dev: 'Let's make it grindy af, and introduce some cars with guns - so everyone run like a headless chicken on the map. Also never touch the map bugs (you know - that spots when you shoot the ridgeline instead of shooting the enemy tanks). Also give arty all 3 FL directive slots, because reasons.

WG: Yeah, let's do this.

I like this mode, ranked battles are pure cancer for the Frontline, for example, a total opposite from gold spam to the regular rounds all the way, feels good man. I hope you can learn from this WG and do something with Ranked battles, remove the stress and make it similar to FL pleaseeeee. Let it be a tier 10 FL :D there you go, ranked battles should be fun, it should be a tier 10 frontline :P

Have engineer skill. Pop a smoke. Go sit in cap. No need for the Major grade, jump straight from Captain to General. Easy light life.

Yeah, I thought It was strange that perfectly aimed and timed shots were missing their target/hitting the ground. Noticed it most in the Lowe with a 5 skilled crew... Baffling

Lights are very good for damage dealing if you know how to play them properly, even in Frontlines. Just make sure to take enough premium ammo as you won't be flanking much.

Couldn't play light tanks, eh, wat?

FL literally got destroyed by lights, but hey, i'm sure it was just like in real life right? "tanks" capable doing 70 was destroying everything on their way, mostly, without ever need to slow down.

I wasn't tought WoT could go any worst, but WG never stop surprising me. Its like, only TX doesn't dominated by light tanks atm as Its already so unbalanced, lights can't make much of a difference there, but everything prior, dominated by lights at their current state. And it effects gameplay sooo bad, literally every game now ends within 5min by results of 10-0 to 15-0. You can be either of side as its totally random.

Wheeled vehicles are new pollution, even worse then Pornogetto.

4-5 EBR 75 on one flank and they finish main objective before second respown.

 

Last FL was good, but from yesterday, attackers keep winning almost all the time 

 

There was a reason why you (WG) had to remove T-50-2 in the past..

Wheeled light tanks are so overpowered in Frontlines its a joke. Nothing can catch them to stop them!

Light tanks are great. Wheeled vehicles are ruining my gaming experience.

FL 2018 great.

FL 2019 week 1 - ok - only the lynx 6x6 was available and things weren't that bad.

FL 2019 week 2 - not enjoyable anymore - every other tank is an EBR or whatever it's called.

 

In a game that already had balancing issues, adding these vehicles was an unwise decision.

 

KA86 is correct.

I really enjoyed Frontline but unfortunately it is now totally broken. Everybody knows that as an attacking team, if 3-4 tanks move into one zone, overload that zone and  push to the end zone and wins. It is un-defendable, as it is random no controlling order can counteract the tactic, and so the enjoyment is now near zero, even winning is almost embarrassing, as it is in effect seal clubbing. If you actually ever look at the teams in each zone it is often 14 tanks vrs 4, there's always an overload and the game ends....sad.

Eh, cars wreck light tanks and ruined any enjoyment that can be had as an LT. Frontline right now isn't a good place for anything but a LT-432 because it's essentially a stealthy medium.
