Yep, still ''edited EBRs in Frontline and still they go behind and kill objectives before zones are capped. Why do these special people end the game early ? They don't even make it to Major rank. It makes zero sense.

 

Am I missing something ? Some bonus reward to killing objectives ? You don't even get rank for objective damage !

Yeah, so much different now than after prosicutto was introduced... Eh, wait, no it isn't.

Just forbid anyone picking more than one premium once per match and it'd be far more playable. Maybe each premium but only once.

Yes, blanket-ban using the word "cancer" just because childish people use it as an insult.

Nope. It's any LT. 432's. Black Dog and EBR's. It's not just EBR's alone that yolo the objectives. And regardless of what of those 3 it is. You're not catching it in any nonlight anyway until your turret spots them. I've countered 432's on turret 5 as I have EBR's today. 

 

Tho giving turrets spotting abilites did help loads. I still think you need to lock down turret zones like the other zones until they push into them. You take E, you have to take out Turret 3 and 4 before you can move into the turret 5's area. As forces there are still occupied with defending C or F to have time to go back to 5 for each yolo that comes there. Thus if you lock them down and bombard anything driving into it until they have pushed to it. It's gonna remain that way. E is usually taken out first. And then most go for 1, 2 or 5. Not 3 or 4.

Nope. You get no bonus to doing damage to objectives when no one is near it. Just as defenders only gets a bonus if they do damage to enemy targets that's near the objective vs far away from it pr shot. So yoloing it early rewards nothing. Basically as much as killing anything blocking your path to the objectives. So no rank will be gained from it unless half the enemy team is near the turret defending it.

Only thing you get is a Mark in the Win Column and a Plus in Credits....      Losers get Squat...     

 

I don't have the Time in my Schedule for the Prestige Requirements for the only Tank that I WAS Interested in, so I'd rather have the Wins.....     I get about an Hour and Change a Day per Week which is 2 or 3 Full Frontline Matches on Average...      That doesn't go Far at All, so WG gets to Keep their Emil 1951, I'll just Buy my Emil I Back is all.....

Why to play FL then? It can be fun for couple of days, but after that, the only value of the game mode is in prestige rewards.

Yes, some of us still play games for fun.

And I don't play it for more than a couple of days.  In fact a couple of hours is more like.  Prestige doesn't interest me because I might make the 2nd one before the end of the year and having everything reset the first time was annoying enough.  I play it mainly to go weeeeeeeeeee in my EBR and see if I can stick two shots in each objective as soon as they are open without getting killed.

So you're in it for credits, and therefore a win is the best way to get them.

 

How many credits are you making per match, on average?

Yes, because there is no reason at all to discuss that in its real context on the WoT forum.

Yes, the good have to suffer for the bad. Thats the way the world works today.

So your whine has nothing to do with EBRs then and its basically players are bad.

 

That's not news and we already know that from randoms, the majority of players in this game are bad.

 

Thus its no real surprise that when it comes to making a tactical decision where not ending the game early is in everyone's best interests, they are unable to do it. 

 

Mods please close this thread its pointless and the title is incorrect.
