198X is endearing, and how it presents a compilation of sorts of an era is something that leaves a positive if not lasting impression.

The Making of World of Tanks: Frontline - A Developer Deep-Dive

Longtime AusGamers contributor and industry veteran, James Cottee, is something of a World of Tanks expert. He's been bombardiering the game for most of its life and was kind enough to share with us a developer deep-dive on World of Tanks: Frontline with input from Regional Product Director, Alex de Giorgio.

Here's a snippet from hi chat and deep-dive Frontline feature:
“1.0 was one of the biggest and most difficult updates we have ever had in World of Tanks, one that was nearly 3 years in the making. Yet even during that launch period we were already focused on the next steps. The reality is you only ever really have a minute to stop and look at what has been achieved before it’s on to the next challenge. That’s one of the reasons we were able to launch Frontline just over a month after 1.0. Frontline was the culmination of a number of ideas and concepts we had been playing with over the past couple of years as well as the experience we gained from Grand Battles (30v30 Tier 10 random battles) or one of the many unique events we have run in the past. As a team we are always looking at offering new experiences built around the high-impact tank battles that are at the core of our game.”

It was a great idea, yet implementing Frontline proved to be a huge technical challenge. “We want the widest number of players to be able to enjoy tanks without needing powerful hardware, and the Core engine which we developed for 1.0 has really helped in this regard. Even so, there were a number of technical hurdles we had to overcome to get Frontline to perform the way we intended, especially with the introduction of respawning and the challenge of potentially having 60 tanks congregate in multiple locations in real time.

I enjoy frontlines and I wish it was the standard game mode, It's more enjoyable being able to re-spawn and pick a different tanks in the same battle. I hope WG release the new FL map soon too. I only play when FL is on now.

WoT needs to sort it's s*** out though.

- Remove SPGs
- Buff older tanks that have been left behind (Tiger II for example) by power creep from newer tanks.
- Address Russian Bias
- Let us try the new ammo changes on the test server. (Removing Prem ammo all together is the best idea)
- Move the Churchill VII to tier 5 and The Black Prince to Tier 6 and put some other Heavy tank at ier 7. One with a gun larger than 83.5mm. Maybe the Centurion 5/2 with the 105mm gun.
