    Frontline Returns!

    Disabled Friendly Fire We’ve gathered and carefully reviewed your feedback on disabling friendly fire, after the start of Frontline last year. It clearly demonstrated that you liked our suggestion and its impact on the gameplay. Thus, in the 2019 Season, friendly fire remain disabled in Frontline.

    Isn't friendly fire turned off in Frontlines?

    Experience with Wheeled Vehicles

    Good for him! Maybe WG will see how long these challenges really take. I'm curious how many free tanks were actually given away.

    Map Discussion: Week IV, Cliff

    There are "new" TD camp spots at A5/K5 with pretty good line of sight. A couple times I used A5, I earned the "useless" comment from my team. What do you think? Is it a useless spot? I feel it's a good defensive position, but that means the other team is pushing and/or our team is failing.

    [DHO] Strongholds - Tier VI - Wednesday Night

    *IF* you are calling, I don't see why it would be too much of an issue to use an open mic. You're the one that should be doing most of the talking. Make it easier on yourself. Now, if the kids are in the background throwing a fit, the dog is barking and the wife has Dance Moms going full blast on the tele, then yeah, PTT might be appropriate.
  7. Is it do the commitment or the mastery? or do you get more rewards for the mastery?

    Frontline Returns!

    I've done well playing the bushwookie STRV S1. I got Major once and captain twice last night. I usually have to scrape out captain if i'm lucky. I did over 9k damage twice and on the other one got captain on a late shot after the objectives were taken. The money seems to be good (for me) too. The last game I cleared 100K without boosters. For me, I'll take it.

    Light tank play journey

    I think we got off topic. I think @Xperiment2g is looking for the how to play light tank information... But since we are off topic, what about the new French lights? I've heard nothing but fun, fun, fun.

    Help analyzing PingPlotter report

    @Sierra_Bravo @Mykk I put this on the xbox page since we got it for my son's xbox. https://www.amazon.com/TP-Link-Powerline-Pass-Through-TL-PA9020P-KIT/dp/B01H74VKZU/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1548943758&sr=8-5&keywords=tp+link+powerline+adapter anyway, you plug these into your router and outlets, and after a 5-10 minute setup, you have any ethernet type connection with out the wires running all over the place.

    Ethernet Through the Power Outlet

    "THIS IS AWESOME!" - my son It took about 10 minutes to set up from opening the Amazon box. Put it in the wall. Connect to the router (Luma). Plug the other one in. Hit pair. Hit pair on the other one. Connect it to the Xbox. Done. There was a warning about the devices being on the same circuit, but I guess that wasn't an issue for my house. He said it is so much faster and smoother. Now he won't be complaining about the lag. His teammates on the other hand.... There are 2 ports on the device too, so I think i'm going to plug the TV into it too.

    Ethernet Through the Power Outlet

    I actually have the LUMA Mesh and it works well. Our house is more square (2 floors) than rectangular, so we get good coverage. My wife has even managed to ignore the node sitting on the kitchen counter. Prices have comedown about half from i got mine ~2 years ago. I should be getting the new powerline adapter today, but I have to work tonight so I won't be home until at least 11:00. I'm sure he'll be awake and wondering what's in the box.

    Ethernet Through the Power Outlet

    This one is actually an ethernet cable that plugs into the wall. So you connect the router (wherever it is) to the box in a power outlet. Then the other box goes into the power outlet near the Xbox (in this case) and an ethernet cable connects the box with the Xbox so it looks like it is running over a cable and not wifi. I'm supposed to get the device Friday (according to Amazon) so I'll let you know how good it is. This should certainly lift my son's spirits cause he's been home sick with the flu all week.
  14. Does anyone use one of these ethernet powerline adapters? https://www.amazon.com/TP-Link-Powerline-Pass-Through-TL-PA9020P-KIT/dp/B01H74VKZU/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1548943758&sr=8-5&keywords=tp+link+powerline+adapter I just ordered one for my son who plays the Xbox in the bonus room over wifi. He's always complaining about lag and timing out. He said his friend got something like this and it works really well.

    Swedish TD or HT Line?

    I made the same trade over the weekend (IS-6B for STRV S1). I haven't got to play the S1 much but I think it was worth it. I never played the IS-6B so it was just taking up space in the garage. I earned the IS-6B from the campaign a year ago (or 2?) So I basically got the discount on the S1 for just playing. I'm working up the Swede TD line (tier VI atm) so I haven't got to use the siege mode until this weekend. Oh, the other thing would be to hold on to the IS-6B, since you really don't need it or the S1, and wait to see if any new premiums that come out (French WV?) will be able to be purchased with the trade in.
