Great mode, smashed my first game with 11k and a win as attacker (it seemed to go FOREVER - I'm still not 100% sure about how the timing keeps getting extended!).

 

After that only won as a defender. People just don't want to push or leave the safety of their little perches.

 

The average pubbie struggles with Assault mode where there is 1 cap, pushing forward aggressively for 6 caps is about 5 bridges too far.

 

But playing the SkorpG as my main tank and after removing all prem ammo was making 130k net on a loss without any boosters running! Gonna be gold sprem in tier 10!

Only played one FL game last night, and unfortunately not really enjoyable at beginning because connection problem (on my side).

Otherwise,  it just as i recall from previous FL mode... as defending teamvits kinda hard to hold on early maps, though somehow our team win because attackers failed to get all final objectives.

Not sure about credit earning... i remember not ended in red tape but it possible I not looking properly.

 

All in all? Will try it again later.

My only niggling doubt is whether would you have made that much or more in the 3+ pub games you could have played in the same time.

I wondered about that as well. The fact it is different is one of the big reasons its so much fun at the moment.

Yeh in most cases the attacking side has less chance of winning, normally during the stages or destroying the turrets, i feel like there need to be time added like 1min to the clock when you destroy a turret and it might fix it enough for it to be 50/50

 

Also you need to do something about the auto zero'ing it doesnt happen often but its kinda annoying when I wanted to blind fire someone but when they were unlit it would than target an area on the map that wasnt even playable causing the shot to %100 miss and there is nothing i can do about it. Here an example https://clips.twitch.tv/ChillyCrowdedSardineOSsloth

Interesting as most of the games I have played in and watched the attacking side has won.  I'd say 9/10.

Great mode, love it. Tons of fun for all the reasons listed.

 

One question: Is it intentional that you can't apply camo of any sort to the rental tanks?

 

Yes, but those rental tanks are just for plebs so it doesn't really matter.

 

I'm just glad they didn't decide to give everyone rental IS-3s or autoladers.

well, rental T-44 seems able to hold themselves quite nicely from what i see, so yeah, autoloaders would be overkill.

Whenever I see one of the rental tanks I always aim for the engine because there is a 90% chance they have no clue that extinguishers exist and it makes for an easy 1k+ damage.

Turn off the what?? 

 

Ok, sounds like a good answer if only I knew where this setting was?  I de-installed all my mods and I can hit the turrets, simply de-installing 'safe shot' didn't help. 

 

Can you elaborate please :)

 

Edit: I use the current Solos Mod pack. 

 

I meant safe shot ...... try Aslain's - legal and I shoot turrets :P

 

https://wgmods.net/37/

 

Solos is fully legal too, and just as popular with no AA offered,  I tried to de-install the safe shot, maybe a new install without it will work, otherwise I'll have to wait for solo to update it. 

 

Thanks for the reply.

I'm really enjoying Frontline, but please, could you put up a notice at the start that the attackers actually need to attack ? Lost most games so far as the attacker cause no one wants to push and cap.

Ok, I have a slight problem..

 

Once I reach the Gun Towers, I can't actually shoot them, it seems to be blocked? 

 

I have removed the safe shot mod, and I run solos mod pack, is anyone else having this problem? 

 

Is there something I need to do, other players can fire at and damage the guns but my gun just won't fire. the tower  is marked red etc.. 

 

This is the second time this has happened? 

 

 

 

Gotta shoot the back of the guns :P

The patch to fix the platoons issue for Frontline has been applied early this morning. We'll check to confirm that it's fixed when the game mode becomes available later today. :great:

From what I have heard, a pretty good mode with a balanced economy.

BTW, Will there be any micropatch to improve fps in frontline mode? Or will we have to suffer playing this exciting game mode at ~20 fps? :(

Haven't been advised about one. I only know of the one that fixes the platoon issue.

Can we have this? After capping their bases, even if you have destroyed two objectives and are destroying the 3rd the time runs out. It doesn't jive with the extension offered when capping bases or even overtime when you are on cap on a base.

 

Also, keep it in the game like SH, maybe primetime or weekend primetime only.

Funnily enough I've had attacking every game except for one, I've won all  5 of my 6 attacking games, and lost my defense game. Though I did find playing defense to be much easier.
