Nice post OP, i haven't had a chance yet to try FL mode. Going off the posts so far it would be fair to say the FV 4202 fairs pretty well in this mode. Please corrrect me if i wrong you can use 3 tanks ? If so how would a 3 Brit Med line up go ?

 

Cheers Moosey.

 

You can use all tier 8 tanks+2 rentals you already own.
There is no hard limits per se, but if you were killed three (or two? i forget) times in quick succession you might need to wait a bit until you can respawn again. 

 

I were playing with Cent 1, Revalorise, Defender, AMX 65t and Patriot, that was six tanks i used last night. And i might have used Revalorise twice.

Strv S1: It's great for attack and defense. The S1's attack is essentially a defense anyway in that it discourages defenders from blocking your team. Also lots of good positions to place that thing. Good accuracy at extreme range makes a lot of people think twice.

 

Skorpion G: Similar to the Strv, the turret is a bit of a bonus, but the dispersion is a let down. When it hits, the target really knows about it.

 

Centurion 5/1: It's like the FV4202, only better :P. Works great on ridges, and gives everyone a hard time... until your team decides to abandon a strong defensive line for no apparent reason.

 

T-44/100: Quite a nimble tank with good accuracy and decent camo. Very easy to relocate quickly when needed. I may play the tech tree T-44 instead as I'm half way to the top gun on that. Either way, still a bouncy turret, but can't work ridges as well. Works well for defense as well... until your team decides to abandon a strong defensive line for no apparent reason.

 

Defender: Good for moving to cap and just sitting there; bounce shots all day.

 

Lorr 155 mle 51: Seriously? Yes, seriously. Good for when you give up on your team for abandoning strong defensive lines for no apparent reason. If they're going to camp, one up them and click.

And remember that you really must have reserve tanks set up. I've seen people desert due to having to wait for their tank to respawn.

I saw a lot of 50 100s on the test server. like maybe 2-3 each flank, but i am seeing very few on the asia server. Is it just a different meta or maybe it will take time to develop.

The t44 is just perfect. Amx 50 100s can give you a huge tactical advantage. Black dog is pretty good for medium tank alpha and the 3 enhancement slots. For TDs....I have seen isu 152 doing really well on defending teams. For capping defender or vk 100.01p or o ho is really really good. Centurion is also good for sniping and Ridgeline engagement.

In general...tanks with good alpha and gun depression are ideal.

Centurion 5/1, Lorraine 40t and Charioteer are my weapons of choice in Frontlines.

Actually I reckon I'll stick to the poverty T-44 rather than the T-44/100 now that I've unlocked the LB-1 100mm gun on that. The engine could do with an upgrade, but other than being a bit slower, it's quite a performer. The only time I had to fire gold with that was simply because I ran out of standard (and the resupply point was quite a way away).

My complement for Frontlines is a modest one; all of them premiums and all of them are all I can take to Frontlines.

-T25 Pilot 1

-T26E4 Super Pershing

-WZ-120-1 FT

-M6A2E1

 

Yep, going to need to start taking more recommendations for premiums to get for Frontline mode XD

Well, there's a saying

 

All tanks are underpowered when driven by self, yet overpowered when driven by others

 

To know good tank or not, just meet those tanks on the battlefield and ask yourself how much threat they pose and how useful they are

 

And, winning gives more base XP, and the higher your rank the more the XP bonus. And rank / winning / base XP seems to be correlated, so end of the day just use whatever tank you are best at playing to win.

I got the RAAC Centurion 5/1 today, and I've nearly stopped driving my Tiger II. Its turret makes me laugh, it's so good!

any class u feel confortable to play is good.

 

TD - I pick prototype t28 and scorpion G as TD and that help me slow down many cappers and also have solo resetted cap as TD many times. Also it helps me to stop resetters when only 1 allie is capping for example, i scare them with high DPM and allow other members to come in time to support. Meanwhile if it wasnt for my work the allies would get just rushed in the cap trying to cap or the enemy would just cap easily coz many HTs and MTs in my team are always sitting in some hill from afar sniping the base, while me in a scorpion G with no armor many times have to risk myself to get the work done.

 

MT- pilot t25, its mobility and small turret allows you to play it from the many hulldown positions in nearby cap points. It has good RoF and its smaller than a CDC for example, allowing you to sit behind cover and wait distracted HTs and other slow tanks to cross towards the frontline where you can have the advantage of flanking. Just need to get used to shell velocity in case you dont know, its kinda slower than others. Just dont play it as sniper for very long ranges as its low alpha and low pen on standard with low shell velocity will be a waste for your team firepower, unless u dont have any other choice but to snipe ofc.

 

HT - T32 can do well and its great for snapping a shot while hulldown. Can side scrap, the turret is one of the best in the game tier to tier. Its also mobile allowing for quick use of terrain irregularities and repositioning any time of the battle. Just dont play it snipping from afar unless u are running away from a taken base and have time to wait the enemy to come towards u. I have seen these HTs sniping from afar and pretending to be TDs behind bushes even in the assault team... 

 

LT - tier 8 LT i have no idea, havent played tier 8 LTs since the last big LT patch that made them 2+mm

 

No matter what class u play, if u going to support ur team using your tanks strong points then its more than enough. Heavily armored tanks sniping from a far is a shame and certain waste for your team, there could be a system that balanced out tanks types accross all flanks. There is nothing that can be done about tank types (ie too much TDs) in this mode, the problem are not the tank types, the problem are the player types. Sniper HTs and camper MTs are the perfect example that limiting the number of tanks per class would never solve the problem, and the problem is often not in the act of sniping a little in itself in MTs or HTs, the problem is on the act of missing every shot or not penetrating every shot being fired at tier 8s....

Forum Guy: "All that Marks of Excelence does is to encourage Damage farming over winning".

Me: "YES sir, MOE does encourage dmg farm over winning, just like winning does encourages: YOLO, Camping far back, gold spamming,"world of capping" mindset, OP premium tier 8's purchases, chat rage, platooning to farm win ratio, toxicity, seal clubbing, arty spam etc..... So i guess winning is much more toxic and bad behavior than dmg farming???"  Wait a minute, wow no one has ever thought about that this way??? Then I must be a genius                                                                                                                                                            https://worldoftanks.asia/en/hall-of-fame/vehicles/A100_T49/#wot&w_ts=overall&w_nb=500

Using the Prog, T44 and 50 100 mostly - tier 8 Chinese LT is useful too. The T26E5 can bounce a bit with that turret.

 

Used my KV5 once...bounced a hell of a lot more than I thought. :trollface:

 

Not surprised with the amount of gold and defenders on the field thought!

Luckily Reaps mod pack is borked for it and has killed damage logging so no idea how much gold I am wearing.  It makes me happier.

Seeing as I am getting pretty well C line spawns in any Frontline I log into the defender has been a very solid starting tank. Great for fast capping on attack, and almost impossible to prise out of my preferred forward defense position next to the cap. 

 

Prog and skorp are my backups but after talking to Pro last night the Blackdog seems barrel of monkeys fun!

the Emil I is a real drain on my profits since I only have the stock gun atm and have been compensating by firing multiple clips of APCR. But I find it to be almost essential for when I need to push into flags such as at C. Sooner I get that top 105 gun, the better. And it can really pick apart slightly damaged T32s in one burst.

  some reasons I can think of someone needing to fire gold:

  • stock gun
  • pre-2016 tank
  • pref MM tank
  • crunch time

Owned Tier 10s: Obj 907, IS-7, Obj 140, M60, M48A5 Patton, STB-1, WZ-111 5A, 113, Centurion Action X, Super Conqueror, Badger
