I would prefer to play Frontlines with 64 players and vehicles. Or at least have a choice between 32-64.
I have always loved vehicle intensive maps. This game seems to be really lacking in that compared to older BF titles.

    That would literally be a Die Simulator as small as those maps are.

    64 players on one point? No thanks.

    Small maps have you played Hamada?

    My thoughts exactly. It's crowded enough as it is. Not that I mind, it's great for those weapon assignment requiring kills in an objective area, but 64 would be nuts.

    God no. I'd be more for 32 player Conquest in all honesty. 64 in any game mode is a bit nuts.

    rofl the maps offer no room for 64 players, or do you want a boring meatgrinder?

    I wouldn't mind trying it out, but it would be waaay too crowded. There's only one objective at a time, and if everyone is pushing it it's already pretty hectic with shots flag everywhere and explosives going off all around you.
    Actually, it's available 32v32 on Grand Operations as the third day sometimes, and often seems to end up in a steamroll at least for me with my limited GO games, as one team will push the first objective more than the other then just Zerg from artillery to artillery. Would it be better if it was full-blown Frontlines rather than the shortened mode? Perhaps. But it could be fun as a limited time event.

    Personally I hate frontlines and never plan to play it after this TOW is over.

    Honestly player count is almost fine what I have seen so far is
    - the maps play are to wide.
    - at any time there seem to only be about 8 players near a flag, 4 in deploy screen and 4 traveling.
    - maps have no flag reference.
    - the distance between some flags is to great, so by the time you get there to contest the enemy already have the flag, so you have to run back to your last flag.
    - Spawn to far away to defend.
    - Flags go to quick. It seems a single player can cap just as quick as 8.
    Note: The wide distance allows flanks to avoid any battle and with length distance creates chase the flankers.

    Example of a bad map Navik. You can run along the water edge avoiding all combat just to hit players as they spawn. While the distance between A to B seems much greater then B to C.

    Having extra players I think will just make the whole thing worse.

    It would definitely need two spawn points like in Breakthrough

    Thats my feeling also. I probably would come back to it if it had 64 players with more vehicles. Thankfully I'm almost done ToW

    On Breakthrough Hamada goes down to one Flag Its kinda fun, but two would prob work best. Yes I have played it on Grand Ops thats kinda why I am asking around for a 64 player version of this.

    Maybe not the full 64 but more than 32.

    Breakthrough is only a oneway street. I like how Frontlines the battle line moves back and forth. Wish it could some how be applied.
