I've played 3 FLs today and my initial impressions:

 

  • I shoot no premium ammo, premium account enabled and I played in tier 8 till the end.
  • 21 minutes 11k damage won battle was about 250k excluding costs, I lost no tank and played the same tank till the end. 10k damage lost battle was about 180k in 20 minutes, I think 3 of my tanks were destroyed.
  • Credit income will still be higher in FL, because you have a chance to deal more damage in shorter amount of time than in random battles and you are deployed straight in the middle of a battle.
  • You can still play tier 8 until the end of a game and they are still able to penetrate tier 9 without premium ammo, since this mode offers open maps and it's easy to flank.
  • All tier 9 auto loaders are lethal and ideal for this game mode, unfortunately.
  • New consumables seem OK, but I have not unlocked all of them yet. Minefield seem to be useful tactically, when you want to block a bridge or a passage.
  • The game mode has not changed drastically, it's just an evolution.
  • BP points income is good, you can get 20 BP points in one 11k damage game.
  • Other rewards are just directives. Directives overall was and is a bad idea for the game, so don't care about those if you can't sell them for bonds.
  • Bourrasque is on sale, EBR 75 (FL) is not on sale:)
  • Only 7 days
  • Is FL dead? Not really, but it's nerfed. Addition of BP and tokens made SH and Fl game modes kind of pointless to play for rewards. As much I cannot tolerate SH, FL is better, but it gets boring after few matches anyway.

Why buy T8 tanks for a T9 format?

I played Frontline for a couple of reasons first I found it a lot of fun.

Second given I have a premium account and some premium tanks I could get a load of xp and credits.

Lastly there were reward tanks and if I played well or just played a lot I could hope to get one or maybe 2 of those tanks.

 

Still sorting out my garage so not played the new FL yet, when you have hundreds of tanks you have to set all the ones you want for FL as primary and send a lot of tanks into reserve otherwise during the respawn countdown you are scrolling through loads of tanks trying to find the one you want.

Hoped we would have an FL filter by now but hey ho.

 

I don't think adding tier 9 tanks will remove the fun I get from playing the game its still 30 vs 30 single tier battles with respawns.

Credit earnings may be lower if you are in tier 9s but should still be good enough.

 

Do not see any information as to what if any reward tanks we can go for.

If its the same ones as Battlepass well all FL will mean is I can have them all with the extra tokens gained.

Was hoping the Emil 1951 might be on offer this time.

 

Lack of reward tanks will not stop me playing but will mean I play way less.

Already at 125 points in battlepass so will finish that easily in a few days without ectra help.

Have the tokens to buy 3 of the reward tanks already have one and I think I will pass on the TD.

 

Ill wait for a full detailed list of FL rewards and play the game mode this evening.

Frontlines requires different equipment loudouts for me compared to Randoms and I share crews between tier 8 and 9 so I don’t think this gamemode will be for me any longer.

This may be out of topic, but today i played frontlines for the first time ever.

God knows that I have not been very positive about this game, but I must admit, this is awesome. Incredible revitalization for ths game! 

Only 2 easily solvable problems.

1, tier 9. Pls no.

2. This is very short game event.

 

Pls just remove t9 and keep this as PERMANENT gamemode! This will even do wonders for mstchmaking.

All these tier 8 tied in frontline means that there will be much fewer of them in randoms, which I consider to be absolute win. 

And it will NOT kill random games, only clean them off the oppressive amounts of t8 in the matchmaking.

Hmmm, I take back what I said. I played it and it seems more fun than when I played it on the test server. I decided to play only Tier 8's, made quite a profit and felt I could still be somewhat competitive against most Tier 9's.

It will be saved for Christmas I think. But it will be come for sale. I mean: There's been Borrasque in sale for several times, Scorpion G several times, Mutant and Type-59 and T-44-100 has been on sale this year. You can trust that one of the most wanted medium tanks in entire game will come for sale and mostly with either bloated bundle or in loot boxes...

 

And the tanks that came for sale, well, I hate facing Borrasque, I truly hate that thing (and when ever I can destroy one I do feel sense of accomplishment), almost as much as wheeled clown cars.... 90mm Buldog however seems to be intresting.

Yet again Wargaming, you are putting something behind a pay wall.

 

I am talking about the special camo for the Bourrasque.

Why can't those of us that already have the Bourrasque, buy the camo separate?

My prediction is fl still.

There are like 3 more stages of FL. WG will let progetto shine in fl a bit more, its free advertisment for the tank then they will sell it for like the last stage. 

Genius.

 

Edit: and i completely except ebr to get similar treatment.

They sold the Type 59 not that long ago, so you will be out of luck.

Anyway, its not the tank it was purported to be.

I bought one, and now I hardly play it.
