The stage rewards seem to be lower compared with what we had the last years (just rewatch the video and pause it when the stage rewards will appear). Also, initially they said we won't miss any rewards and now we have a choice of two out of three tanks (also lower, as in the previous Frontline we had a choice of two out of four tanks). No tier 8 prems this time, only special tanks, which are decent crew trainers, but won't have anything else. At least the Emil 1951 was an actual prem tank (and there was a choice between three prem tanks: STA2, WZ111 and Emil 1951). 

 

If you could not stand Steel Hunter last year, you will miss a reward. The initial format was supposed to have one FL week and one SH week, with both modes having the same rewards, which would allow you to play your favorite mode and get those rewards. Now, the format is completely changed from what was initially intended. I get the feeling that this will be the beginning of the end (especially if they implement the stuff that i've seen in the Sandbox server). 

 

I am not sure if i will tune in for any of those modes this year, though i will check them out when they will start. Needless to say, not thrilled with what i've seen so far.

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

 

Same here, I fear the genius of WG to tamper with an allright mode (nothing can be perfect for anyone) as they have done with the chaffe race.

We all remember Frontline no1 it was good for the players and it was clear you re going to change it so it's unrewarding pain in the backside

Hello frontline, my old friend
I've come to talk with you again

Because a tank softly creeping

Shot its shells while I was sleeping

And the shells that was planted in my brain

Still remains

Within the sound of fire...

Being able to grind half FL and half SH instead of FL only, every month will help me keep my sanity :teethhappy:

 

Plus I like the fact you don't have to reach the last level to have a tier IX tank, you can do only 4 levels out of 8 and still have an exclusive tier IX, nice!

Frankly all I care about is the gold rewards. I completed Frontline and  8100 for all the frontline prestige points + gold reward between levels were good as well. I certainly hope WG didnt change those  :unsure:

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:

Hi!

 

Sound really good. I did get the Phase last year. Now I am going to try get that Char Futur 4 so I'm excited.

Ok thanks, waiting for it. I didn't mind FL atall last year and got myself both the AE and Emil 1951, I will try to get both the 777 and the french one this year, and also will try to grind a ton of credits in FL if(I hope) will last for atelast 1 week at a time. SH was a bit meh because all of the teaming problems but got to lev 25 on that aswell, 5k bonds in 3 days was quite nice :D

I enjoyed FL but Steel Hunter was meh, let's see if WG put some work into it. Watching DrDisrespect fail hard in SH and randoms was way more entertaining then playing SH myself.

I`m dissapointed. There will be no tanks with 4 guns or something similiar that you`re added recently ? Maybe hover tanks then ?:P

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?

 

Don't know that yet unfortunately, but as written below, a different approach has been tried this time.

More or less grind is what I wanna know!?

 

From what I have seen so far, less grind and much more flexibility. :)

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.

 

Basically, the core gameplay did not change almost at all, rather it's those quality-of-life things that we had received feedback on.

As far as I know, we're not to share too many details about progression YET!

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.

 

If among those 67 there were tanks that you did not intend to play anyway, you could just send one crewmember from each tank to the barracks. Tanks with an incomplete crew did not show up in the carroussel for FL. :great:

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

I have 102 Tier VIII tanks so I can fully confirm the difficulty of finding my next tank. Furthermore, as mods like Aslain do not work in FL I have to pre-equip the tanks I play with in FL with camonets etc. The number of tanks I actually play with in FL are therefore limited to the ones I have manually outfitted with equipment like bino's, camonets etc. A feature to preselect the tanks for FL would be a big help.

 

I do not recall getting messages warning you for airstrikes, that's a Warthunder feature IMO. Getting saturated by multiple airstrikes is just a thing you have to account for in FL, especially well into the game when capping the last areas. Just because most everyone having that capability will have it available by then. And yeah, having a slow tank is a disadvantage, especially because getting flanked is one of the big issues min this game mode.
