You're barking up the wrong tree cause WG doesn't give a flying f@#$ about gameplay balance.

Ban Progetto. That's an option too.

Yeah, I didn't mind the Lynx last episode, but I stopped playing FL this episode because of EBR, it's just stupid.

If they don't limit number of EBRs and Progettos in FL, I won't play it. Rewards are not worth the pain

I voted 'no', but not because I have wheeled vehicles (well, I think I have the silver T6 somewhere, but haven't played it yet) - whilst they can be a damn nuisance (I met my first wheelies in FL last night), it'll probably just end up being a case of learning to shoot fast moving targets a bit better - they seem to be nicely fragile when you get your shots to connect...

If they also ban Progetto 46, I'll vote yes.

Actually, FL has way bigger issues then the premium wheeled vehicle.

 

And yes, while it can be annoying it's also an easy HE target.

He's not wrong.. (or she) 

 

Frontlines has become a farce of its former self, remember  T44s and T32s and FV4202s running around like mice (well not so much in the T32s case) but there were a lot of them, now this time its P 46s EBRs and Su103PMs, of course there are other tanks mixed in the 40T is still a favourite, a few defenders (or 252s) but I would say that at least 80% of the tanks in Frontlines are 'autoloaders' 

 

The EBRs are too fast and have the 3 Combat Reserves advantage, yesterday I watched about 6 minutes of QBs toon with 2 EBRs and I got bored of it, and honestly, I also feel bored with Frontlines, it just hasn't got the same feeling as the first time, and it is overrun with the WVs which disadvantage the slower HTs and MTs, and strategic cover too. 

 

Great if you like to play them, bad if you are a WoT frontlines fan.. 

 

Yet another example of WG not fully considering the implications of introducing such tanks, short term profit over long term playability.

WG will surely take this weeks data to further "improve" the game experience.
I am just not sure if I will like what is coming.

 

*edit: you can't test such changes to their full extent in an artificial environment with like 50 or 500 testers

Much as I hate wheeled vehicles, I can't see that FL has been ruined by them.

Pain in the butt yes, ruined no.

 

For attack....

Was it ever a camp+spot mode, I always thought it was a push hard mode - which kind of negates the need of the WV doesn't it?

Yes they can rush to cap, but the few I've seen do this get obliterated quickly.

 

For defence....

There are a few camp+spot locations that in the first zones of a game can get the WV spotting you, but once dealt with, the cooling down period means I don't get to see them again until much later near the main objectives.

At which point a WV doesn't appear to be much use.

 

So, I still hate them, but can't say it's ruined FL.  This grind for the free tanks has ruined FL - that I can agree on.  Battles are no longer much to do with fighting and more to do with capping as quick as possible.

By ruined you mean vastly improved.

 

I actually had fun today playing FL with my EBR.  That's the first time I actually found FL fun.

Yeah same. And the EBR is not the broken tier 8 light everyone plays. There are way more 432's then EBR's to name one. As it's not a light you spam HE vs head on in your EBR to put it that way.

 

But if I were to make a top 3 tanks that ruin FL more so then make it fun. Then EBR would not be on my list.

Well, I guess we can expect the EBR ban hammer any day now. Homer_J has confessed to actually having fun while playing WOT ;)

Entirely ruined? Based on what exactly? 

 

You do know the Lynx 6x6 has the same top speed and same hp/ton as the EBR 75, it also hits for 240 per shot not 175 and hits for 320 with its HE.

 

And wheeled vehicles are easy to deal with IMO, especially in decent lights, most of my Generals I have got using lights. 

 

You sound like a typical baddie that whines about something new, instead of adapting and learning how to outplay it.

perhaps, limiting those to 3 per team, as with arty.

 

Platoon of 3 WV is very hard to stop.

Right now airstrikes is the only thing that can provide some defense against fast caps with WV.

Can't vote in the poll because I'm not a wheelie fan, but I don't want it removed from FL either - there are plenty of things I'd rather see "fixed" with FL before anyone even looked at wheels....
