So for those yet to read about it.. seems there will be 4 reward tanks for FL over the course of the 10 weeks the mode is on. You can only pick 2 out of the 4. But they will ofc costs points that you earn. The last tank can only be bought when you reach max prestige. As in rank 30. You can reset 3 times pr event week if I understood it correctly. So 10 x 3. 

 

So it's basically the STA-2 and WZ-111 as the basic rewards. Then you get the Swedish Emil 1951 as the tier 3 one. And an unannounced tier 9 tank. But that means I was semi-right. One of the new tier 8's tested of late will be a FL reward. But it's not the US tier 8 TD as some predicted first too. 

 

Source, and a long list of FL changes

But hey... that means most here will get a free Swedish HT crew trainer for free.

Yes, I will for sure want to go for the Emil as I already have the STA-2 and own WZ 112 so no reason to get WZ 111. I also do not really care about the tier 9 russian TD, I have no russian TD crew to train.

​Tbh, I suspected it was the tier 9 Chinese TD tested earlier. But I suspect we will know soon enough.

Hmm.. good point. I forgot about that one. When they announced a secret tier 9 reward tank I instantly think of the removed TD but it can be anything...maybe is none of these ? 

 

Also, for me won't matter anyway as I do not have a chinese TD tech tree either.

You mean the one that's been out on the China server for ages?

Not exactly something I'd enjoy.

For one; it is another fake tank.

Secondly; it is a paper casemate tank destroyer.

 

As for the other rewards: STA-2 is an outright joke.

Definitely an out-of-meta MT from a country barely anyone players the MT line of.

WZ-11111111? Isn't that one still powercrept after the buffs it got recently?

 

So the only real reward, imo, would be the Emil 1952.

I have to admit, I'm very glad about the STA and WZ being the first two...it makes the choice that much easier as I already have both. Come to think of it, for Frontline last time, the WZ-111 was one of my most used tanks.

To be completely honest with you, I really like mine. I guess because it's fast... a mobile heavy doesn't care too much about penetration and accuracy when it's top tier, and if you see tier 10 there's always that wonderful 250 pen HEAT round.

So for one week out every month everyone will be glued to their PC's in oredtr to get more points and these rewards tanks, hmm seems a little bit like these marathons, where all good gameplay goes out the window and it is every man woman and dog for themselves.

 

 

Still at least we can breathe easy when we play our T 8's again:popcorn:

Lets start the bets people.

 

Is the new "secret" tier 9 tank Russian ?

 

Maybe a Russian captured vehicle ? Whats the best non Russian tier 9 tank in the game ?

I think you can only reset the prestige progress 10 times in total. And only once per episode.

There are two thing I didn't understand and would appreciate it if someone could clarify.

1) Are those reward tanks only for the top player of FL, or will they be available for everyone who reaches the required prestige points?

2) And if they are available for everyone, should we choose the vehicle before the even starts, or do we choose when we have the needed points?

More or less just play as much as you can and as good as you can.

With that you accumulate points, with points you get ranks and once you reach max rank you can reset and start again but than it is prestige.

Once you get max level in prestige you reset and go prestige 2 and .....

Basically it is a map of 3x3km divided up in 1x1 km squares. So 9 squares in total. As attacking team you spawn in the bottom three squares. The rest of the map is closed. In order to advance / open them you have to capture the three southern bases. Then you can capture the middle three. The northern most squares have 5 huge fortified guns, of which 3 have to be destroyed for the attacking team to win. Defending team obviously has to prevent that from happening.

By doing (assistance) damage to enemy tanks, capturing bases and damaging the guns you earn xp to increase rank (corporal - sergeant-lieutenant etc). Depending upon your final rank in that game, you get bonuses to your xp and credit earnings. Also, your accumulated (assistance) dmg gets added to your overall progress in the mode (similar to the Progetto / Caernarvon AX marathons). One you reach level ten, you have reached level 1 prestige and can reset. RInse, repeat until you reach level 10 and reap the rewards along the way!
