i dont know if anyone else is having this problem but im getting INSANELY frustrated by the number of times ive been dumped on the defending team... ive been playing all week, probably put in around 20-30 games of frontlines but ive not been counting, and so far in this entire week ive been on the attacking side ONCE... ONCE...

 

Why the farquad am i always being dumped on the defenders? even the last season i played i think i was only on the attacking team about 3 times in the whole week!

 

WG, seriously sort the farquading MM out for frontlines.. you want players to keep playing frontlines right? well im gonna give up playing frontlines altogether if i keep being dumped on the defenders side... ITS GETTING BORING AND FRUSTRATING ASF!!!!!

7 out of 9 games yesterday I spawned as defender on C. Worst possible thing there can happen if you play for ranks.

50/50 for me. So cant complain.  But there is nothing to do other than play for ranks, as winning/losing is irrelevant.

 

But a number of games. I was A once, B five times and C about three. I tend to cross to B to fast cap that then help A.

50/50 for me also, and this episode no more than three times the same (defending or attacking). Also pretty good balance between the zones I spawned.

The ONLY time I gripe about the def/att/sector triumvirate, is when in arty and attacking from C.

It's horrendous. Nobody respawns back into C, and that's of those that didn't vacate via the cliff road as soon as possible, into B.

 

Apart from that, I care not where I'm spawned.

I'd rather be on the defending team, blocking cap points is way more lucrative then actually capping. I get General rank way faster defending, it's just a matter of wisely choosing which tanks to play.

 

But if the attacking team is full force on a cap and there's not a lot of teammates it can be painful, so yeah, it won't always work out like that

Must admit WG been good to me this round. Way more attacking than defending… Not that it matters rank wise, but my game style is and always will be ATTACK!

Im hoping the last few hours today will bring me to prestige 9. Those new personal reserves are insane for people ending as major and general most of the time. :)
Curts the grinding down to few hours of fun instead of days of horrible grinding.

Not true. Defending is generally a lot better for ranks than attacking. You get points for just shooting somebody in the cap. As the attacker, you only get points if you cap it out completely. If you are playing to get normal experience, then yes, defending is worse because the attacking side seems to win more often than the defending side. Ranks however, don't depend on the outcome of the game.

Well if you spawn on C and stay on C you make far lest progress than on any of the two other ones. This is due to the stalemate there is in this location right from the start.

Again, not true. I generally end up major before C is lost or given up. C is a great place to farm damage and points. I dislike B as a starting point far more because it means you have to waste time relocating early on or lose a life way too quickly.


The problem is that most people seem to equate defending with red line sniping. This doesn't really work. However, this doesn;t make defence a bad proposition, it just means some people make poor choices.
