It sound rare asking for deserting without punishment but since FL is fun mode is not a big deal rathern then playing 10 min a losin game against players who rush through you zones and while your teammates stick on they zones no help or reinforcement and you rank while you tryhing to stop/hold the enemy as long as possible. You get low rank while others who don't help at all get high ranks in your team.

Guess waiting 3+ minutes for your tank is kind off...

...boring?

Considering most play for ranks, rather than the XP win bonus. And that regardless of how bad your team is on a loss, you can still get those, and the XP bonuses the ranks come with. So I've seen little point of leaving. Then again if you got no penalty for it, I suspect you would still slow down on your grind if you left all the time. Vs staying and getting a rank or two extra out of it.

 

As tbh, if you die all the time holding flanks no one cares about, getting no rank. Leave it and go for the objective areas. As in those where you can get something out of it. I've left so many flanks. As I see little point wasting lives on a 1 vs 10 when no one cares about it. As that's indeed how you get bad games. As you said.. it's a mode for fun. If you have no fun on that flank. Then don't focus on it.

When attacking switching to the enemies weakest flank is the best way of winning. On Normandie map you typically want to capture B->A->D or E depending on which has less enemies->the one of D and E you didn't capture in previous step->C (if not already captured)->F

Until you reach the objectives this strategy is optimal both for grinding ranks and actually winning the game, even if it means abandoning a bunch of allies when switching flanks. So no, I don't think leaving early shouldn't be punished. Same things goes for defense, best way to climb ranks is to decap early on, but to let them have the zones after a while, and then to kill enemies near objecives as they give extra points. But this isn't about you wanting to make more use of boosters, is it?

What you're asking for is having players deserting for free on your game.

 

And you complain about players not helping ?

yeah i was dead twice in quick time at the end of the game and had over 3 1/2 mins to wait for a new tank and there was 4 mins left on the timer and 2 turrets down. what was the point in me waiting for perhaps only 20 sec of time to drive. so i left - yeah that was a mistake :(

You know you can drive to another zone or press J and abandon your tank...

Well imagine if everyone did it. Would it be fair to you if you were suddenly about to rank-up and earn more profit, but your team lets you down?

Since introduction of Kraftwerk or whatever it's named, i had 11 battles with 9 Kraftwerk. I tried few times to play it but it's extremely dumb, like it's made to make you grind longer since ranks are going up waaay slower than on Normandy.
Anyway, i deserted all those 9 battles.
I entered with dumb tanks in FL, or semi-competitive so i am not hurt too much if i have it locked for another battle. :D

If people don't help, they don't rank up, so it's impossible for people who don't help to get high ranks while people who do help get low ranks. Especially when those people with low ranks then come here to complain that they want to desert for not getting high ranks.

 

The conclusion is other people are doing something right, you are doing something wrong, and you want to compound that error by allowing you to desert? How about no.

Maybe if you have no beer? I always found those minutes pass rather quickly if you spend them drinking beer, eating snacks and putting on some music. :popcorn:

Conclusion you think I'm wrong but I want you to play several battles as defender and your zone that you suppose to defend is captured in less then 2 min because the team that is suppose to defend with you are reduced to 5 while others drive to zones right or left.

So defend it better or stop whining. We all get the exact same maps as you do.

Is not about whining noob and how many times you get a noob team. Defend it better seems you never play FL or you play in platoon because I think you pro in FL by talking like that.

I know you are wrong, going by your original statement, and by this statement. There is no "supposed to". There are sound tactics and there are poor tactics. Poor tactics is staying in a zone because you happened to spawn there no matter the consequences. Frontline is designed for people to switch flanks, and just like normal randoms, you don't engage in unwinnable battles. If you field a tank that doesn't have the mobility to retreat or even worse doggedly sit there wasting a reserve because you think you "should", it's your own fault you end up dead, frustrated and with a low rank.
