No idea why WG didn't make a thread to discuss it, but here's the preliminary thread so we can talk about it while WG's Common-Testing it

https://worldoftanks...1-announcement/

 

Changes:

- 1 week per month for 10 months, instead of a month-long rampage

- Prestige can be used to buy STA-2, WZ-111, EMIL 1951, or a top-secret tier 9 reward (?) tank

- Less respawn-kill spots

- Less durable objectives (the Battleship turrets)

- Reduced damage for the pocket plane-strike and handy-dandy arty-strike things

- The "poison gas" mechanic hurts a lot more

- Improved performance for potato PC's (probably)

- Rent tech-tree tanks for credits, or premium tanks for gold. Yeah you pay an entrance fee first before hopping in to Frontlines now.

Can you imagine the amount of salt people who don't have IS-3A / Defender are going to cry

 

Maybe also Lorraine but then the whole server has Protato so who cares about Lorraine

No Lorr, no Progetto, no IS-3A, no Defender.

 

But I have a T25 Pilot and a 90mm Bulldoge. I have that going for me, which is nice.

The tier IX reward tank is likely going to be Chinese or Russian TDs that were removed from the tree in earlier patches... think SU-122-54.

I reserved my grind to STB with the STA-1's 275-pen HEAT specifically for Frontlines. And maybe Emil 1 will get a run too.

​I actually want Lorraine lol. BatChat crew wants fights but also wants to earn credits at the same time

Finally time to grind the 65t and maybe the T32 as well. I have a boatload of T8 prems, so IDGAF about rentals. 

 

I recall that Defender was somewhat situational in Frontlines, and could often be left behind or swarmed. I earned WAY more using fast, punchy tanks like the 40t and Spaghetto, and the M4 49 felt much more useful to me when I needed a heavy. Interested in seeing what I can get away with in the LT 432. My guess is that the IS3A will be especially ineffective on this map given its slow speed and inaccurate gun.

 

IS3As and Defenders will probably still be useful for last-stand defences to try and hang on to cap points, but only if the spawn isn't too far and/or has good cover (like the town area).

Yeha WZ 111 is way better than Defender in frontline simply due to the mobility

Thou must shout my name if you want favorable RNG and MM

I remember Frontlines being in the wake of the Alpine giveaway, so there were masses of the things around. They didn't do too badly in that mode.

Wait, you mean those WZ111/Alpines were not there as xp fillers?

If they give away my baby (122-54) to any shitter with enough time to play Frontlines every minute of the day across both servers after they tore my heart out and removed it, I will be an angry, angry man.

Your list of tanks that don't do well in random is... rather interesting

Nah its the WZ-120G FT I think. Not to be confused with the WZ-120-1G FT at tier 8.

Invent a whole line of tanks then invent another one as a reward tank. Such Wargaming.

WZ-120G FT is the reward, but they are also talking about a WZ-120G-111-4-G-111-4 FT as a second premium for the line.

 

Who are we kidding, it's not Rasha so you only get one premium comrade.
