Some of you missed, and it's finally coming back in a refreshed form, what do you guys think about it? Who's excited? :izmena:

This sounds very nice and i am curious to see the steel hunter mode reworked but....in my opinion people shouldn't be forced to play both modes in order to get both of the rewards. Still if the steel hunter mode is better than the last iteration then things should be fine.

Can't say too much right now, but certainly, we have read the feedback about previous SH iteration. Hopefully, you will like this one. :)

Just curious how each "Stage" compares to "Prestige levels" of the last year? Would one stage compare to climbing up to Prestige 30, 3x30 or something else?

I stopped playing FL after players stopped trying to win the battle and just kept it going to maximise points.

This was a mistake on my part as it meant I missed out on some tanks and I really wanted an Emil 1951.

Still think this bending of the rules to gain points was a problem hopefully something will be done to address it in the next FL

 

Game mode also favours fast tanks, one of the things that stopped me playing anything slow were the airstrikes and artillery.

Message comes in air strike incoming and you have zero chance of exiting the area, whereas if you have a fast tank you almost never find them a problem.

Its also sometimes a pain finding the tank you want to play next after getting killed I have 67 tier 8 tanks and find myself scrolling back and forth trying to find the one I want.

Even so I will be there

Nice. Will bonds be part of rewards for those modes?

Why we don't have the option for finish both modes a competitive tier X instead of 2 tier IX ? I have the Phase 1 with zero games in it also Emil 1951 with zero  games in it. I am more interested in bonds than tier 9 tanks.

Please put a decent compensation in bonds for people that doesn't want the tanks, not 1500 bonds for a tier 9 tank like last time, when a tier 8 tank is 8000 bonds in bondshop.

Guess that means Steel Hunter is turned in to a grind-fest as well. Too bad, I prefer fun modes.

Is there any confirmation about which tier will be playable in those modes? I know it was tier 8 only until now, but i see maus on the begining of the trailer so im a bit confused. :(

Frontline was ok, but I liked Steel Hunter a lot. Hope it isnt changed that much. And two new tanks sounds nice, although it seems I will miss the September event due to vacation and wont be able to get the max points for two tanks. And if it will be a succes that all depends on how hard the grind for level 15 is each time. But so far it sounds nice.

At least loosing progresion was eliminated, and this is a good thing.

Great! But what about putting Front Line one month, Steel Hunters the next month, then Front Line, then Steel Hunters...? :-)

If I may ask, how much each stage/episode for FL will last, I hope atleast 1 week/month so I can grind some credits aswell, also I hope it's tier 8 again. :D :unsure:
