Not sure about any tanks having multiple combat reserve slots, but I certainly prefer the look of this compared to the previous seasons!

So those people who only had the rental tank, which you can get from credits, will now be even more of a burden to a team, as they will be gone 7 minutes instead of 5?

 

WG let them be able to rent more than 1 vehicle for credits, right now you are letting them get a taste of the fun, but punishing them too harsly.

a lot less light tanks and arty, very good. Though the EBR brigade will cry. Reducing respawn from 30 to 10 seconds? Hmmm... I actually think the brief 30 second cool off period is actually necessary for some players, allows that "garaged" player to evaluate the map, see where the team is weak and needs help then make the correct spawn choice whereas with 10 seconds that won't happen and you'll just get a childish dumb dumb yolo die n spawn thoughtless idiotic sort of approach by some.

What about telling us what the super secret IX tank is? No? after 5 month we are still playing for something we know nothing about. The past week I barely played any games. I am at a point where I might totally give up playing. I'm tired of waiting for them to announce sth they should have announced 5 month ago.

Nice changes. Can people that do damage to pilboxed to get capture points acording to their damage ?

Now only person that destroy get 100 capture points and is not fair.

You can still get 1500 bonds and gold  instead of that 15 points.

The hell do I need bonds or gold for? I'm barely even playing. 

It took me a long while but honestly this game is not worth playing any more. 

I used to play over 200 battles a week because I loved the game. In the past 7 days I have played less than 100 and even that 100 was because of all the xp bonus events. I used to never miss a single 5x events now I couldn't care less. 

Now I might play one session per week for 1 maybe 2 hours and I will definitely never ever spend another penny on this game. WG doesn't deserve it. Now I may not even play in this episode of FL. Play for what? A tank that I will most likely not even like?

Forgot to say that since the update I have not even opened the game once just to check what's new.

Fontline should replace Assault thus giving us Frontline Assault :P

the most successful and skilled Frontline fighters will be able to get their hands on the Emil 1951, a Swedish Tier VIII Premium heavy tank with an autoloader.

 

This made me laugh... so not for players of my skill level if being garbage is classed as a skill level. :)

 

GL to all those who have the skills but I won't be taking part.

Still no clue about the tier IX reward tank, as I'll soon be at prestige level VII ...

 

When will we know us? One day before Episode 8 opening? :harp:

Light tanks, the class that is actually the least competitive, needs 3 slots and heavy tanks, which are very easy, need 1.

 

Yet again Wargaming has got the balancing completely the wrong way around to favor dear old Steve the IS-7 driver yet again....

What about tier 9 reward? I'm not playing FL until you let us know what we can get. I'm not gambling my time for something unknow, maybe even bad secret tank...

 

I'm still at lvl 1 prestige and most likely I won't even try to play next month if I don't play this month, and I won't play this month until I know what is the reward.

Why u not introduce some half ranks? So many times i finish the battle at one shot to the next rank...Is so frustrating!! ..I propose,at least 2 additional ranks,between captain and major (could be "commander"with 750 points),and between major and general(could be "colonel" with 1050 points)
