Good to get info out there sooner than before, bu tit does feel overloaded with clashing events though, the clash of teams will also be running. Also 2 weeks of tott doesn't feel long enough, but interesting to trial 2 weeks for 2 seperate trees

Monthly rundown consists of smaller events and specials, Dawn of Industry will come as a separate event. :)

There's a (black market) guy at the end of the video taking a tank (looks like chaffe) from the shelf.

 

Damn, he does seem to resemble one of the thugs from the group who stole couple of our tanks. :unsure:

Nice that we are back to two top of the tree every month, just wish it was 2 at the same time.

I am eagerly waiting on Frontlines news. I was hoping FL will become a regular mode in WOT, as an alternative to Randoms. We have been playing Randoms since 2011 (well some of us), and a regular alternative mode, like FL is very welcome. Not in drips and episodes which make people puke after crazy grinds, but a standard mode which can be played and enjoyed on a regular basis (with cool rewards like before if possible).

Why are you guys so obsessed with the black market?

 

Consider me as a noob, but even I have 35k gold and nothing to buy from tech tree (I mean, if you play this game from 2012 you will save some)

I currently have about 120,000,000 credits knocking about so would be able to spend some of these.

> Top of the Tree is back and twice as strong.

On the contrary. There are two TotT, but half as strong...

Depends on how you look at it. With us having FL mode as cyclical, time-restricted event, we're able to prepare unique specials and awesome rewards, e.g reward tanks, such as the AE Phase 1.

That's fair enough, just a couple of things which would help out would be:
If the Rank progress would naturally be equal to what we had with (rank) boosters (which took up a booster slot not allowing to maximize gains from Front Line).

If Attacking/Defending sides and maps would have a rotation and would not repeat, which get's very annoying especially when you have those amazing 10 minute games in a 30 minute game mode.

The rewards were pretty good, loved the tier 8 swede but despised the AE Phase 1, rotting in my garage with 30 games or so as it got penned by same tier tanks thru the turret frontally, the tank, apart from the free repair kit, had nothing interesting or "novel" about it, so at the end of the event i was pretty grumpy about the insane amount of time spent on Front Line being for a crappy EA Phase 1, hated myself for not doing research into it and exchanging the points for gold instead of picking it up.

I agree that FL rewards were very generous. But its also a wonderful alternative mode to Randoms, not just a grindfest for special rewards. I believe there must be a way to preserve the reward system while also making this mode more accessible. For example, why not make the mode available for casual play during weekends as well as in episodes. This way people will get more time to enjoy the mode (specially on weekends), and less need to go grind crazy during one week, which is hard during work days. WG knows its customers are mostly mature 30+ people, who mostly all work during the week and can't manage the time during the week and hence feel 'obligated' to grind like crazy in the one weekend a month per episode. Anyway, I do hope that FL will return soon as its the one mode which brought back interest in the game for me after many years of almost having given up on this game. I also enjoyed the Tank Festival 2019 with many other interesting modes (but none as good as FL).

That's why, as it was announced, we will try a different approach at FL this year, personally I don't think that there will be a lot of changes to the core gameplay, rather I reckon that we will see some progression and cosmetic improvements.

Regarding the rewards, I had the exact opposite feelings. I have tried the Swed, and it wasn't for me, however, With AE something clicked, and I had many nice moments with it.

I completely agree, there're ways to do it differently. The thing is, that when designing the mode, we have to also take into account a lot of the balancing factors, ones that I wouldn't even think about. As I wrote above, hopefully the different approach that we're currently planning, will tackle the issues that players had in FL 2019.

Thanks for the reply and shedding more light on what's to come this year. Eagerly waiting for FL news and updates.

The Löwe skin will be available only to  some lucky viewers who will paste the code fast, or it will be available to purchase in game as well (with gold/real money)?
