Frontlines is the worst

I guess I'll never get the new gun. I have played about 20 rounds. one lasted 1 and a half hours. I can't get past win one game of frontlines. I hate EA for making it like this. And it usually isnt even close. It is usally a sweep. This new way of getting guns makes loot boxes look fair.

    That’s statistically very unlikely but if you say so then that’s just some bad luck...so if I were you I would keep playing. Your certainly due up for a win. Also, are you PTFO’ing or hanging back sniping and relying on your team to carry you? There’s a lot less room for “loafing” in Frontlines because there’s much less players.

    I have found that even one good player can turn the tide of a Frontlines match by getting in there and arming a bomb at just the right moment or pulling off a magical flank and wiping out 6 camping players on a flag helping their team secure the capture point. String enough of these moments together and your team wins.

    I can generally reduce a Frontlines match down to several key moments where a single or few players did something very important to influence the tide or flow of the game their way.

    16 v.16 is also much more manageable than the bigger game modes. Running a medic with smoke is also a great supportive way you can help your team push forward and win matches. I think one good medic can change the tide of an entire 64 player game. Keeping your team alive is the most important thing to do if you want to win.

    Obviously some games won’t go your way...but eventually you’ll get on a decent team...

    So wipe those tears away pumpkin...grab some smoke nades and and the Tommy gun and go get your machine gun.

    Not 100%, but I believe that the weapons will be available for purchase with CC. The buzz on Reddit that I found is that it should happen relatively soon (some say this week but I never hold my breath). The inability to purchase them currently is being called a bug, and it sounds like the intention is to make all the TOW rewards available for purchase after the week for that reward expires.

    I agree.

    The lower the number of players the more you have to PTFO. Same in Squad Conquest.

    It does suck when you get on a loosing team match after match. I usually bounce to another server after it’s clear the team refuses to work together

    Agreed. It makes me feel all squirmy inside. And not the good kind of squirmy.

    Frontlines suffer badly from the lack of teambalance!

    I just purchased the sebdtlader 1906 and VGO last night with CC. Seems this latest patch has made it available.

    I like the game mode, I just don't like half of my teammates.

    I agree with this. If the teams would work together it would be great. I played one match for well over an hour and I legit got bored. I only stayed in cause I was trying for the ToW assignments. More so the 25000 point one. Which I got. But it was rough to say the least.... I mainly play conquest. So i don't see myself going back to frontlines to much....

    Conquest is a bit boring IMHO after Frontlines and Breakthrough. I’ll only play Conquest when it’s tied to a TOW assignment.

    Sorry.

    Frontlines is not my cup of tea, because it funnels you to one spot.

    Conquest funnels the action, but disperses it intelligently to 3-4 spots, making multiple routes for flanking possible.

    Unless I just don’t get it, Frontlines has 1 route.

    There’s more than one way to skin a cat in Frontlines. The maps have plenty of flanking routes.

    That's one of the factors why i say i can't stand half of my teammates, because they keep running straight head on and getting hosed down constantly like a civil war reenactment, while the other half sit back unsuccessfully sniping and not playing the objective.
    The playable map area is wide and i flank all the time surprising the unsuspecting enemy team from behind. I'll take out at least 5 before they realize what is happening .
    I just finished a match and went 78kills and 24Deaths mostly from flanking with the medic no vehicles.

    2 of the 3 Frontlines matches I played were on Hamada. I flank all the time, but that map doesn’t have a lot of cover between the 2 flags we were battling over.

    Conquest is more my speed.

    Where did you find these? Are they in the armory? They are not showing up for me for some reason?

    They appear in The Company menu where you change weapons.
