Anyone noticing that you get set on fire way more often now than before? I just got lit 5 times on fire in a single game just now... No one experience something similar?

I have had the same thing. Had 3 fires in the first 5 min played FL today. Have played 4 matches and more than half of the times i got killed it was just due to fire. Yeeey so much fun.

I was running premium extinguisher... Ended up swapped to manual one, lost the count the amount of times I was set and that I caused fire... Airstrikes were almost a guaranteed fire.

Same experience here, so many fires across all my tanks, it seems airstrikes and arty barrages have a 50%+ chance of setting you on fire now. The increase in fires has been noticeable, was screaming at one point during a game where I died to fire every time, even running prem fire extinguishers on every tank I use in FL.

 

Also seeing no decap pts when sitting on a cap with the enemy also sitting on the cap. It seems to get maybe a lvl then just hard stops, no matter if I leave that cap and come back to it. Is there a hard limit to the amount of decap pts you can earn from any one cap?

 

Some strange things happening on FL this time around, although not enough to stop me getting the Chaud :)

Why people forget about air strike/Artillery strike existence? They land on the engine's roof. So....yup.

260 points I think or maybe it’s 160 but anyway yes I’d the answer. This happens to me last time FL was on. Craftwork map.  base B ( yes you know the one) after I reached a certain amount of cap point I stopped increasing in rank. The reason I stayed longer was like you I was thinking whats going on. link below. I think this is the link but don’t blame it it isn’t lol

Atleast artystrikes give you a warning so you're generally aware of them happening, usually I only end up getting hit by those if I really can't move (any hint of that drumming sound and I naturally start to back up or go forward). Airstrikes though, man alive, it's just instant and since it can pen, it's either going to do jack all or just delete most of your health. I saw a poor guy in a T26E4 Get hit for 914 By one while sitting on Kraftwerk B, behind the wall, with no other strikes or anything targeting him and no one in any position to take that kind of shot.

Yes.   Only in the LT 432, bloody thing should be called Zippo

 

I've never seen a WV on fire, not dissing the WVs but never seen one on fire.

 

My tanks (with rough stats in FLs)

 

Defender took out twice, 0 x fires

E75 TS (used on defending final stages) 0x fires

Senlac x 1 fire

EBR - 0 x Fires

S1 x 1 fire

LT 432 about x 7 fires in a 4 hour session

 

I've since removed the food and run a Auto Fire Extinguisher now

Not fire, but I did get several retarded RNG series in farmline yesterday ... like 6 track shots in a row, homing shells from beyond visual range on a pixel and so on.

My EBR gets set on fire literally every time it gets hit twice. But generally once you get hit twice, you are dead, so maybe that's why you don't really notice them on fire - anyone sane also uses a fire extinguisher in FL. I found any shot in the rear damages the fuel tanks.

Yeah - same thing here. Just played my first FL match of today - using my LT432 twice. Got set on fire 3 times - where I the first time maganed to get out burning and back to repair zone - only to get another fire 1 min later and then rekd. Aaand after the repair/cooldown roll out again - got 2 hits and then the fire came again.

 

Fire exinguisher and firefighting directive is loaded now...

they increased at maximum module damage, crew damage and set fire... just to keep economy very very low with them. i can't even make credits at T7 without premium and my LT 432 is almost always set a fire and i lose credits with it.
