Let's rush and destroy all the objectives as quickly as possible!! That way we win the game! Oh what fun I have in my EBR and LTs rushing behind and destroying them!

I guess we should all learn how to win from someone who doesn't have a positive winrate. :facepalm:

 

But thanks for your input.

Could you tell us all when people are allowed to comment on a subject please.

 

Do we all have to have a positive winrate to comment on any subject, or is it arbitrary ? Are you the judge who permits or bars folk from posting on any subject they choose ?

Do I have to have a positive winrate to comment on music ? Or would that be ok by you ?

Isn't that the whole point of Front line?

You don't actually want to win, you just want the game to go on for as long as possible, so a players WR is irrelevant

Oh he can have an opinion all he likes. It's just very ironic to comment on other people's idea of how to win a game when you apparently haven't got a clue yourself.

 

The Dingers really lowered the bar if this already gets you boys so salty nowadays.

Depends on the situation. If your team is so out of position that you're not gonna get anything useful out of the game anymore anyway, might as well just end it if you have the opportunity. Maybe they already made general and don't feel like waiting longer on potatoes still trundling around doing nothing. Who knows.

 

I have gone in to destroy objectives early several times because the rest of my team seemed to be doing nothing useful, getting spawnfarmed, etc, worst case scenario, the game ends, best case scenario, some people come back to defend, giving some breathing space from the spawn to actually play the game in.

When attackers are attacking A they cannot enter area D to kill enemy defenders from behind (you get arty shelled by turrets 1-5). However when the attackers are attacking D the defenders can roam freely in area A.

 

Simple solution; When attackers are attacking D prevent the defender roaming free in Area A (they get arty shelled from the ships at sea).

LOL someone who thinks being good in pixel tanks is some sort of achievement. Hasn't played for months, WR in last 1000 battles 2% less than mine but thinks he's cool because he can make 'clever' remarks

Tell you what Mimi, grow up and grow a pair  :)

 

Quick edit: Yes a great WR is an achievement but 50.1% in last 1000 battles is as average as I am!

Growing a pair? I'm not the one who comes here to whine about what others do and don't...

Most want ranks. But there are some that grind tech tree tier 8's that want XP too. And a good rank on a long game on a loss gives more than a fast game with no rank on a win tbh.

 

And since FL stats are not shown, or affect your service record stats. I still don't get why people are upset when they lose. Even if they all are Majors or Generals. If they still are a sergeant after 20 min and still complain, well...

You're a hoot. Now, maybe think about making a constructive topic instead of "boohoo, they destroy the objectives before I managed to make general boohoo". You know, like discussing possible flaws in the mechanics, rewards system or whatever? Ah nevermind, you're just being "witty" :)

To be fair your comment wasn’t in the least bit constructive. The comment about the Dingers even less so.

You're not wrong. Topics just crying about what other players do and don't aren't really getting the best out of me lately.

If you don't find the topic interesting or constructive then you could just stop reading it but somehow you seem compelled to continue to interject with asinine remarks.

Amazing how many people cannot grasp that winning in Frontline is far, far less important than rank. 10 mins left on the clock and some numb-nuts destroys the last objective and finishes as a sergeant... you get almost no xp for damaging / destroying objectives. Far better to lose with a high rank than win with a low one. There are multipliers for credits and xp that increase with rank (10% for sergeant but 200% for general) whether you win or lose.

Oh it's a highly interesting topic to me. I'm very intrigued to see how you intend to start a meaningful discussion by crying like a child over people performing an action that is literally the objective of the game, yet you intend to blame them for it rather than faulty design or a wonky reward system.

Maybe the dude is tired of watching people derp around, maybe he has to leave, maybe he has enough points to make his rank. Who knows. Hell, it might be their first game of frontline. Perhaps blame the game and the opposing team, not people playing the objective.

 

Sure, it's not smart and not convenient, but it's a bit strange to get angry at people for doing what the game tells them to.

Well it seems there's quite a few that have started a 'constructive' discussion based on this post. But hey don't let something like reality get in the way of your blinkers!

 

But do please carry on whining about how much you hate this post because its a whining post and how worthless it is as you continue to read and comment on it!

I'm just laughing my head off because all I see is yet another self-opinionated loser talking about unconstructive posts as he fills it with unconstructive whining.

 

And I'm sorry whining topics aren't getting the best out of you lately - a bit like your recent WR I guess

The great thing about Frontline is you don't have to play it.
