Feb 11th rofl im not a rocket scientist but you cut out all the weekend players, and people who have a life , jobs ect, you realy are not helping your players with this stupid date to start warfronts . STOP. BREATH. THINK.  

 

As far as I'm concerned the 16. and 17. count as a weekend, and since the episode lasts one week the number of playable weekends should be the same... One.

There are 10 episodes, meaning 10 weekends to play. Plenty if you ask me.

Looks like a great event WG - thanks.

i do hope that graphical performance has been optimized however, as played like a bag of spanners for me last time, so barely got involved.

 

One question though - how do these recent ‘5x XP’ bundles work with FL?

Are they activated? If so, how does it allocate if you end up using several different tanks - some of which have used their daily 2x and some of which haven’t?

Really looking forward to this, this will put some enjoyment back into the game for me........the rewards are just a bonus for me tbh.......I would still play this without reward tanks....so thx WG.:medal:

 

 

The thing I would like most is to be able to save up all those bonds to be able to spend on tanks that are not usually available to us mortals i.e Obj 907 etc............:harp:

AFAIK not even the daily 2x works in FL, so I wouldn't count on it.

No, your job is to tell us what times during the day we an play this mode. Preferrably far enough in advance so I can come up with a good excuse to either call in sick or 'work from home' for the Day, IF we can play this mode "al day". :B

This is actually good news (if it is the case) - would probably prefer to use some of my premiums FL over tech tree, but didn't really want to 'waste' the 5x on crew rather than grind.

No reward canos though? Bummer...

:(

 

But the event looks very, VERY nice overall, the rewards seem to be great. Big thumbs up for giving us enough points to unlock both new tanks! Now all I need is something to spend all those bonds on. Any info on the bond-shop and it's content?

I have one question (that maybe somebody asked before, if so please, point me to the answer), and is when are you planning to insert fair retribution for those that end up at 90-99% of being general, but they couldn´t reach general rank by a few points. They are almost generals, but they are not, so they get stressed in the end of the game because they run out of time and they cant reach the higher rank (General, Mayor, captain, whatever, this is applicable to every rank).

Shouldn´t it be also rewarded if you are a % closer to it?

I know that it is much easier to develop it in a way of tiers, if you reach a tier, you have reward, else, you not, but everything is not black and white, sometimes you have played an important role that is not that much rewarded in points in the game, so, you end up paying it in your rank.

 

I seriously think that its tremendously unfair to be at the 99% of being general, and receiving the same as if you are at the 1%.

Every arty hit i get makes me crave for FL. They are pretty much irrelevant there.

 

1 week like super fun than cold shower of bot randoms. 

 

BTW any rental codes? I could use some retarded french autoloaders :D:D

Hi!

 

I tested Frontline at test server. It was not hard to reach Prestige level 1(Frontline tiers->30). So is this same at live server or was it made easier at test server?

No. At live server the progress is a lot slower.

Going from the last time Frontlines was available, how much XP would be needed to get to level 30?

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.

 

View PostGeno1isme, on 08 February 2019 - 11:48 AM, said:

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.

I managed to found paper with points from last year:

 

  1 (-)             11 (662)        21 (696)

  2 (350)        12 (668)        22 (698)

  3 (474)        13 (673)        23 (700)

  4 (537)        14 (677)        24 (701)

  5 (576)        15 (681)        25 (702)

  6 (602)        16 (684)        26 (704)

  7 (621)        17 (687)        27 (705)

  8 (635)        18 (690)        28 (706) 

  9 (646)        19 (692)        29 (707)

10 (654)        20 (694)        30 (708)

 

So overall 18 930 points was required to reach tier 30.

So reach level 30 will take 16 battles assuming you get to general all the time. How much XP again is required per battle rank from Private to General?

 

Edit: Best strategy is going to be getting to Prestige level 3 in the first season, then progressing one prestige level per season.

Actually it seems they have raised the values.

 So it looks to be harder this year to actually get up to rank 30. I don't know how many points we got last year for each battle, though. This year it looks like we will get:

View PostZapfhan, on 08 February 2019 - 02:59 PM, said:

  • Private—0
  • Sergeant—150
  • Lieutenant—350
  • Captain—600
  • Major—900
  • General—1,200

Actually Zapfhahn wrote that those are the number of points we need to get to advance to those ranks during a battle, but I assume that is what we get after the battle as well. 

 

 

If all of those values are correct it looks like this year it actually will be an accomplishment to prestige and an average player might end up needing about 50 battles to get there (assuming an average player gets up to captain in an average game).

So a minimum of 26 games or a maximum of 204 games per prestige level.

 

 

Also I'm calling it, the Tier 9 will be the ST-II

2 x Questions:

 

(1) It says 'teams of 30'.  Do you mean we can play this similar to Random games or only in Clans?   Because I have no wish to be in a clan at the moment. 

 

(2) How do we play Frontlines - what do we click to make it happen?

Yes, 30vs30 random, you do not need to be in a clan

Next to the battle button you have a tab, ordinally it says random, click on the tab to bring a drop down menu, then select "Frontline". After that all you need to do is click battle.
