Read the regulations, looks good. If we achieve ranks at same speed as we did on last FL, this will be nice event. I love it that you're giving 200 gold for every rank, that's going to help a lot of f2p players - for demounting equipment and stuff. Nice, GG WG :)

 

If you read it more carefully, you can see that the gold and bonds are for each of the prestige levels not ranks :P

Yeah, I know, I mixed up those words :confused:

But still, at the end of event you can have 3,2k more gold than you started with :)

Well, that is, if my math is correct :D

Really nice WG! I mean the rewards. I don't even remember when was the last time you could get 3200 gold from an event(yes, i know now you need at least 8 months to get them, bit it's still a good thing). Also 7000 bonds and 2 tanks, a ton of credit, personal reserves (2*50) and directives. It's very nice. I would't believe I will say this, but GG WG! But you have to make something good, to make us at least a little bit forget your mistakes, for at least 10 weeks. But you not off from the hook with just 1 good idea, yet!

 

But I hope you know it will make the tier 7-9 random MM turn upside down. With the current MM in tier 7 you will be almost always the king, but in tier 9, you always end up in tier X. So no grinding during this weeks (but why would you want, when you have frontline :) )

Is there available list or pattern of how many points are needed to level up tiers? At common test it was 100 points for each tier, but Im not sure if it gonna be same at live server.

 

If the progression is like last year we'll need about 19k points per prestige level, so 190k points for level 10. Assuming you make captain rank on average and battles last about 30 minutes we're talking about 150h playtime in total.

Of course it's possible that WG completely changed the progression numbers.

Why try to get the Emil when it cant be used at random battles later?

 I'm missing something.

 

  • EMIL 1951: This is a Frontline-exclusive vehicle, a unique heavy tank with an autoloader, which is brand-new and exclusive to Frontline.

"Frontline exclusive vehicle" which means you can only get in via frontline mode (atleast for now)  but you will be able to play it in randoms like any other tier 8 tank :P

Community, i have a question. Does those awards for effectiveness in battle give u bonds like those did last time? For example award "general of the army" did give us 40 bonds each, if i remember right.

You don't have you throw money at the screen for Emil, if you can reach prestige lev 10 you can get both the emil and the tier 9 since you can earn a total of 27 prestige points and the emil will cost 12 points and the tier 9 will cost 15 points, good luck :)

Episode number 1 will kick off on 11 February at 06:00 CET (UTC+1) and will be available for one week.

Just one thing... in this page https://worldoftanks...-1-regulations/ you have an interactive image in the Prestige Mechanic section, but the number of episodes is wrong... it is: "Feb 03  04  05  06..." and when we select "03" the prestige level only goes up to 4, when it should go to 5... pls correct the numbers :)

"After the end of the Season, the Prestige Points remaining after the exchange for tanks can be exchanged for a small amount of Bonds and Gold. The exchange will only be available if it’s impossible to get any of the reward tanks."

it would be nice to know how much bond and gold that will be

It would be nice to have the possibility to can choose only one tank and the rest of prestige points to be exchanged for bonds and gold. There will be some prestige points wasted.

The chance to get Emil and tier 9 is nice.

This prolly will give some push for new players. So its prolly fine for game. Meanwhile, having to grind rank 30 for 7 times or 10 times for last 2 tank, i mean, i'm like sure that won't happen for me. You are literally asking 2 week of every month, actively participating to frontline for entire year. Then by end up 2019, we will able to get 1 of new tanks (as it also doesn't seems possible getting both emil and t9 one). Somehow, not excited about this event now and possible not going to even care about barely putting 3-5 game per month on it, as i usually did before.

Great to see the rumours about there only being 26 prestige points are incorrect - with 27 prestige points that means I can aim to get both the Emil 1951 and the Tier IX secret tank...good job WG.

 

As others have said, I'm a little surprised that there seems to be nothing about active hours...if this does mean that FL is available full time during the week, great.

On the test server, I'd reached the first prestige level in 6 battles....if I can do that as an average, that's sixty battles over 10 weeks of play across the year to reach the maximum rewards. OK, some players won't even have time to do that, but many will.

Whatever tanks you feel comfortable in. All vehicle types can do well. Maybe not superhavies in the more open areas, but they come into play when you get to city fighting. For me my basic lineup will be T92 Light, T-44, Progetto, IS-3, KV-4and maybe even my WZ-120-1G FT. I have lots more T8s and will see what I pick depending on the tactical situation - defending / attacking, what parts of the map are we on, etc etc.

IDK man i almost had similar premiums last time and i mostly played with Prog46, SkorpG and T-44. I like flexibility and i hate slow tanks. Hence i almost never took Defender for a ride. It lets me down when is most important.

I haven't played last time becaase the optimization was really bad, but I tried it on the test server and this time the fps is way better. Same, my main tanks will prob be the Progetto and lt 432 :D , and maybe the su 130pm, but I will prob try some other combinations with patriot or caravan ax, or pilot and m41 90 , good luck and have fun :)

Yeah optimization was bad, idk why i have good PC and laptop, and they both sucked. I turned everything down and played like that. I hope they fix this.

 

Still shitty FPS FL was better than stalled random with 3x cancers. Plus it was really fun, no matter we win or lose. Sometimes it was hard to take over because some were stupid and enemy was in farming positions, but still you could do indivialy so much. And not get hit by arty.

 

I was hoping for arty/airstrike removal this time, but you can't have it all. Good thing FL is here and i hope they keep it permanent with maybe more maps. Event is a such refresh to the game.

Just like any other WG article about regulations of whatever, they use fancy words making text interpretable and confusing. SO i hope they enlighten us about what frontline exclusive means. Only obtainable in frontline, or only usable on frontline( Emil 1951) ?
