    Assault is already to go to class. Let other classes have their moment lol.

    Edit: Also, Crackshot and Old School are different challenges on the ToW screen than on here. One or the other is false and needs looking at.

    Another pointless weapon that I'll never use - that's 4 in a row now. Commando Carbine (1/10), LS/26 (4/10) and Tromboncino (3/10)

    Why do you deem a fast firing carbine pointless for a class that desperately needed something that actually does not suck at close range.
    Assuming it will have similar damage and RoF stats to the P08 pistol it will have:
    359 RoF
    4 BTK up to 12m , 5 BTK up to 30m, 6 BTK up to 50m etc.. basically the regular SMG damage model.
    This could be a blessing for every aggressive recon out there

    It'd be glorious for this thing to have the same or close enough stats to M1A1.

    Reduce the Points for TOW Level
    The XP Points is **** when you need over 100000 Points for next Level..

    That's flat out worse than say, the G1-5. You'd be better off with the model 8 w/trigger job, or the RSC.

    It turns out it is one less bullet to kill than the sidearm version.
    The rsc and the model 8 have too few shots to work against the crab agents

    It doesn't matter how many shots the P08 carbine has though. I can with confidence say all other weapon classes bar a few outliers (anything bolt action, the Selb 1916, shotguns at range), has a better TTK than this gun at most ranges. Yes dealing with ADAD spam is a pain, but the Model 8 and RSC do have the raw TTK ability to beat other weapons, unlike the P08 carbine.

    It's not Tides of War anymore but Trial by Fire and the XP to rank up to 40 is a doddle and nothing needs fixing. You'll need 3 million or close enough to get there, the last one from 39 to 40 is 166,700 XP.

    I'd recommend Frontlines to rank up, you'll get double the XP and the cap is around 19K

    If you are less than rank 30 by today's date (14th May) you are behind schedule.

    All you get is a poxy fire rake and some underwhelming AKA skins, hardly worth the effort in all truth

    It’s still Tides of War. They’re all Tides of War. The last one was Tides of War Chapter 2: Lightning Strikes. This one is Tides of War Chapter 3: Trial by Fire.

    The score you get in game does not correlate to the XP you get towards Trial by Fire. It's a mystery as Frontlines will give you roughly 15K XP toward TbF ranks whilst only scoring 9K in game. Conquest on the other hand if you score 15K in game you'll only get 8K toward TbF rankings. It's all a bit messed up.

    Oh yes, sorry I'll go back to sleep. Just goes to show how confusing the naming convention is.

    Guess i'll be playing a few more games of Frontlines then because even if it directly correlated with in game score, with my SPM at the mo circa 500 (overall is more like 400) it's going to take me 50 odd hours of gameplay ( minus the TOW challenge bonuses of course so maybe 35-40 hrs) to go from rank 27-40  Same confusion with weapon XP.  I assumed it was basically the damage you did with your weapon, yet when i was aiming towards the 3K with the Luger Carbine i surpassed that with the weapon rank well before i apparently did 3k damage.  DICE really should start explaining how their XP system works.  It's like when we were promised an explanation on ticket bleed rates in BF1.  That failed to materialize.
