Combat Reserves should maintain their hotkey across tank types. I used to be able to set the reserves in the same order in previous years for all tank types (so that they have the same hotkey across different tanks), but now as we cant choose our reserves, we also have reserves linked to different hot key for each tank type. This make it so hard in the heat of battle to select the correct one. I have many a times used a strike when trying to activate Recon Flight.


Also, please add a button that says 'set for all tanks' when changing/setting the reserves after you unlock them. Now I have to manually go and change reserves on all my dozens of tanks. Its just tedious and waste of time.

If are remember correctly, WG said the tier 9 is ONLY for testing in the 1st season..
Why are they still in it??
I think on the forum many people gave a really good feedback.

What should have been new at this stage is at least one new map .

The maps are very big and all , but still this mode needs more maps asap .

Bollocks. WG hasn't, doesn't and won't listen to feedback unless it fills their pockets. Feedback has been very negative on tier 9, and they couldn't care less. So guys, keep your well intended feedback for yourself, but not for WG.

Well bois, this mode got destroyed by WG stupidity again...
Dunno whose muppet idea was to implant Tier 9 to this mode where there are T8 tanks too..
Implant a separate T9 Frontline and Separate T8 one.... dont combine them ffs...
Every credit farming opportunity is gone now, as people just spam their normal Tier 9 tanks and you cant pen reliable them without spamming gold there....
Before I used only normal ammo as I wanted to farm, but now you force me to either Spam more APCR and HEAT or buy that overpriced Tier 9 premium tanks which not even give you more advantage for credit farming...

This game is just going downhill. Shame.

Gosh, you're telling them exactly what they want. Why do you think they destroyed this mode?

There is no motivation to play this mode. No rewards only some directives. I am not going to get involved at all.

Remove Tier IX tanks.
Or made an alternative FL for Tier IX.

You destroyed a fine mode. Another one.

Reward tanks are eliminated, credit benefits are reduced, I don't know what WG expects, but if motivation is removed, interest in playing this modality is eliminated. It is not difficult to understand. 

WG's ideas have ruined a game that many liked, bye Fronline, I'm not going to play

I play tier 9 without needing to fire ammo gold :playing:

i agree it was better without tier 9 , is it possible to go back? Apparently not. 

We know good than when Wg makes changes it rarely comes back :facepalm:

Frontline? Tier9Line more likely.


From bottom of my heart, go f-yourself with your tier 9 frontline mode.


There is absolutely 0 fun to play it, I quit it after playing for MISERABLE 2 hours without a second thought.

Constructive criticism: If the global problem for WG is that your long time player base have accrued massive credit balances and therefore spend it only to spam 'gold' ammo and have no other need for credits?

Then give us something to spend the credits(that we paid for in time/boosters/cash etc) on something worthwhile. Don't use a game mode that a lot of us really looked forward to, as a credit sink by totally ruining it with tier9s. Also my goodness, this years rewards for FLs are so stingy/bad......why even bother? In fact why bother even logging in WG.....a game should be to relax and for fun....FL was that for me.


Sort out the 'gold' spam problem don't ruin one of the few fun modes left in the game. Maybe have more 'Black market' events to sink credits into, maybe a separate loot-box category at xmas with lesser rewards. Maybe to purchase missing xmas camo's for credits. Maybe 500k credits for a few days tier 10 rental....to try before you buy in randoms to see if you like the playstyle...before you grind another tree. Get creative.


I know you are a business and want to run down everyone's credit/gold reserves so we buy more, we get that, but give us something to spend them on.....don't ruin one of the few events that actually keeps me logging in. I have money.....but you have nothing interesting that I want to buy.  

Do these comments you ask for ever get pushed forward? More importantly do they ever get acted on. 5 minutes of my life wasted typing??
