Hello,

 

Frontline mode is the main selling factor for tier 8 premium tanks.

 

Why not make Frontline available everyday, during servers prime time when we have enough players to fill all games mode, lets say from 18:00 - 22:00 local time?

 

Thanks.

Is that 18-22 Romanian time or 18-22 British time?

Because "local time" doesn't work in online services like that.

Local time as the 4 hours period when the specific server has more concurrent players.

Yes, so for the EU, would that be 18-22 for the Romanians (UTC+2) or 18-22 for the British (UTC+0)?

As you can see from this site https://wgstatus.com/#/en/wot

The prime time for EU1 and EU2 is from 18:00 - 22:00 UTC with the peak around 20:00 UTC.

Except I think it shows UTC+1 for me...

So again, which timezone, because the website doesn't make even a single mention of it was far as I could discern.

The site is permanently updating every 15 seconds, so check the last time tag on the graph curb and compare with your time.

If you want to kill the mode off fast. I suspect having it on daily could work. As not too many were... playing it voluntarily after a few weeks of it last year. Tho, you can put up an argument for it after the shorter time with it this year. As in after summer etc. As then I suspect most will be bored of Steel Hunt to welcome it.

Anyone unable to play during those 4h is out.

 

Got more ideas?

This would kill regular T8 match making, which is relatively healthy right now. 
 

Also, your claim that Frontline is the main selling factor for T8 premium tanks is just something you made up.

That's why Frontline just started and WG is selling no less than 8 different tier 8 tanks for Frontline (not including the weekly tier 8)...
