    First time I went 0-line with the Polish tier 8 prem I just rolled over it. The scouts in the coals in the middle got insta-spotted and sniped (when the gun behaved) and the campers couldn't do shit to stop me. A platoon of tier 10 rusky meds will dominate this part of the map so hard.

    Am I the only one that likes 3/5/7?

    The problem isn't that you can't damage enough tanks. The problem is that with only three top tier tanks, one (or two) top tiers playing like morons will lose you the game 90% of the time. And there is pretty much nothing you can do about it in your bottom tier tank. It also highlights imbalance between tanks in the same class. As per the 50B and Grille vs Super Conq and 268-4 example. It's a bad experiment that needs to stop if they don't want to kill the game.
  3. Some people have wayyyy too much money to throw at Wargaming. Just played against a dude with 3 games in his tier 10 Polish tank. And 0 games in the line. So he literally free-xp'd to the tier 10. It's his third tier 10 tank.

      I mean technically I have enough gold to instantly skip to the tier 10, and I didnt pay a cent for any of thay gold.

      Yeah, that was not this guy's situation. He has two other tier 10s with a total of about 150 games, and is rocking a 50% WR.

  4. Wow. Just came back to the game after quitting right after Frontline ended. The incompetence of this fucking company not fixing the 3-5-7 mm is astonishing but hardly surprising. Does anyone have any idea if Frontline will return any time soon? I haven't been following news about this game lately.

      there was some testing of a tier 10 frontline mode too, hopefully it comes back, it was basically what brought me back to after I took another months long hiatus. Also MM fix is supposedly also coming in a few months.

      Thanks guys. I don't think I can stand playing tier 8 tanks at the moment, tier 10 is a shitshow as well, but for different reasons. I'll have to keep an eye on news to see if they do the Frontline thing again in some form since that's about the only thing that could get me back to the game. Larger maps and respawns ftw. Although a MM fix would help, there are so many other issues with randoms.

  5. I just realized, I haven't played a single random game since the 5x weekend, just Frontline. It has problems, but it's a breath of fresh air for the game. It needs a couple of more maps and perhaps different tiers at different times (tiers 6-9), a few performance tweaks, something to discourage spawn-camping and that's pretty much it.

      I'm waiting for Frontline to end and the server to empty because every one has finally experienced non-shitty WoT and can't go back.

      Yeah, I may take a break again when they shut down Frontline.

      Same. Not even the x5. I got in one by mistake (didn't switch to FL before pressing battle) and I hated my life afterwards.

    Chinese Reassurance for Tier 9 needed :)

    It is a monster in the Frontline mode as well. With little prem ammo and only tier 8s many tanks will have problems penning you, especially at range.
  7. I mind the Defender less in this game mode. Most engagements are at medium or long ranges and any position worth taking can be flanked. That said, I had a game where a platoon of two Defenders and a VK just drove onto an objective B and parked there. My team couldn't kill them fast enough to prevent a cap. The rental T32s and T-44s have problems with them even from the side.
  8. Wow. When Frontline started I alternated between Scorp and Blackdog with Type 59 or WZ 120-1G FT if both the others were locked. Made General most of the time, all good. Then I started playing almost all Scorp with some Patriot to brawl at the objectives and to push on sniper nests. Still made good credits but ranking up was a little harder. So I started experimenting more with the Blackdog. And playing light tanks is apparently pretty easy xp, and therefore ranks. Take my last game as an example. Scorp did just under 8k damage (5,3k from 300+) with 2,6k assisted. All good. Blackdog did 1,4k damage (550 from 300+) and 360 spotting with 114 defense points. Scorp nets 1.925 base xp. Blackdog gets 1.614. Either disrupting cap is super, duber valuable or light tanks get en even insaner amount of xp in this mode than in randoms.
  9. Yeah, the problem is that it requires others to follow, when they prefer to snipe and hide. But I agree, I was playing with a friend last night, it is pretty easy to farm the spawn-campers from behind coming in from B even with two tanks.
  10. Spawn campers in zone C are getting to be annoying. Allowing for easier support from B and perhaps making tanks invulnerable for a short time after spawning might alleviate the problem...
  11. Wargaming could instantly spike up the sale of tier 8 tanks if they made Frontline permanent.

      Had they introduce this a bit earlier, I would have bought the tier 8 spagetti premium with 50% discount.

  12. This mode isn't without problems, but I like it. It's almost what WoT should have been. Large map, any position can be flanked (I've almost never seen a tank trying to sidescrape) and an incentive to push. Re-spawning also means people aren't quite as risk averse. Slow tanks are the losers here, but I like fast tanks so that doesn't bother me too much.
  13. I like the game mode. It feels refreshingly different. Even if your team sucks you can still farm a lot of damage, which makes me happy. I'll use it to grind through the SU101, it seems to do well in this mode. As does the WZ-120-1G FT with that insane DPM and good alpha. I find that you want speed above armor most of the time, except perhaps when defending that last stage, and that you can get plenty of long-range engagements. Scorpion, Blackdog, Progetto, Lorraine and even Type 59 have been working well for me. Apart from the SU101 the only tier 8 tank I'm grinding at the moment is the O-Ho. I can't get that one to work well, except perhaps in the last stage of the defense. It isn't good at range and when you brawl you get shot from 11 different directions. I will, therefore, finish the SU101 grind and then use it like most people, to grind credits with premium tanks.

    I think I may be collecting players with weird tank fetishes now.

      @PlanetaryGenocide I hit 60% on tier5 on a non prem accout, firing no prem ammo after 3-4k battles. I was 51% overal but I was good low tier. I would not call it good. Put a 2 skill 100% crew + good equipment and 58%+ should be a given in tier5.

      I'm unironically garbage in low tiers, lol

       

      except the T67 I have a 67% winrate in that but I also haven't played it since it was still called the T49

      @PlanetaryGenocide I think when you get used to high tiers low tiers are awful since in lower tiers flanks collapse much faster and you have to be in a 1vs 15 mindset more. Never rely on anyone, not even to do damage, never rely on a full hp tank to not be killed in 30s by a lower tier tank. This means that sometimes you have to react faster and be more passive (while year sometimes agression also works beause of the dpm to hp ratio)
