Tank Commanders!

They've been on the ropes for too long – it's time for the Defenders to strike back! After lots of careful analysis, we've decided to introduce a few small tweaks to Frontline Episode 3 exclusively for the Asia server that will hopefully create new opportunities for the defending team, and promote a more balanced and dynamic gameplay experience.

Read on to find out more about what you can expect!

Improved Pillbox Armour

Your pillboxes will have their turrets' side armour increased from 160 to 180mm, giving them some much-needed protection from light tanks, who will now have to risk more behind enemy lines. In addition, high-angle shots by TDs from a distance will no longer be able to penetrate them.

Decreased Base Capture Speed

All units, stand by to repel the enemy invasion in Zone B! To cool the attacking team's tracks a little, base capture speed will now receive smaller bonuses from the Engineering Combat Reserve, as follows:

  • Levels 1 & 2 - 1.5x base capture speed (previously 1.6x)
  • Levels 3 & 4 - 1.7x (previously 1.8x)
  • Level 5 - 1.8x (previously 2x)

Recalibrated Airstrikes

Pesky attackers moving in on your bases? Interrupt that capture and thwart their plans! The Airstrike Combat Reserve will now do more reliable splash damage within its radius of effect when deployed, but in exchange, its penetration will decrease.

Our scouts report that Episode 4 will be taking place from 13 May, 07:00 UTC +8 to 20 May, 04:00 UTC +8, so be sure to save the date! Check out the full list of rewards and detailed rules for this game mode:
