Dammit, I am liking how it rewards people who play to win, but was confused why would WG make a mode that would discourage half their population and most of unicums.

i am getting low FPS every battle too. Lowered my settings to minimal and still getting 15-25 FPS every game (still playable). My PC is not in the lower end of PC tecnology but its still an i7 3770 3.4ghz and gtx 750ti with 16gb ram and directcx 11. Cant understand why should i run the settings in the minimal since the FPS in randoms at maximum and high settings in run stable at 60 FPS. The map size combined with the battles calculations must be pushing my PC to the limits... Or maybe the game mode is still not fully optimized. Dont think there will be a patch to fix it though, since its just a temporary game mode...

Huge credit gain, no stat [edited] getting salty if you play "wrong", lots of tanks to shoot, got respawn.

Thats some good points I can think of.

My tier 8's finally can fight stuff they were able to fight, instead of being triple-blammed by tier X weaponry.

 

And yes, despite the duration of FL, it's actually sped up my 65t grind because its turret armor finally means something bouncy instead of being easy-pen by HEAT.

Just the usual 48-50%ers telling everyone that 'team on zone c are noobs and should uninstall'.

How does it discourage half the population and unicums?

It doesn't affect stats, there is a shitload of credits that you can earn, unicums can get bonds fairly often if they play well, the rewards can re-earned through Prestige levels. 
It's the best thing WG has come out with since people found out how to climb after physics was introduced.

It's the best thing to happen in the game since I've been back. Way more enjoyable then randoms and getting to fight tier 8 while playing tier 8 is refreshing. 

BlackBerrie (9:30:24 PM) you have to be 58% win8 to get in there clan.. which is impossible

Tell B zone to flank after their easy capture ...... C is horrible if defenders spawncamp you - which is stoopid easy there...... which makes me wonder why it never happens when I am on defending team :P

I'll give you 3 out of 4 on that, but the one that's 'not quite accurate' isn't as much of an issue as it is in randoms.

"Disabled Friendly Fire


Friendly fire will be disabled in the Frontline mode. There are several reasons for this. First, we want to evaluate the effect of such changes upon the gameplay. We need to understand the changes in players' behavior and statistics. Of high importance is your feedback regarding such changes: whether such changes are worth introducing to the entire game."

Frontline feels like sandbox now :D. But its very good move by WG. Finally some sense started to reach WG shot caller.
