I dont play Ranked, so not going to comment on that. Frontline you have 5 episodes left, and depending on how much time you can invest during those 5 episodes and what your average performance will be 2 Prestige levels per episode is doable, but you will need to invest A LOT of time. Del_Mare did some calculations:

Your average rank Hours you
have to play
Hours per day for 10 week
and 7 days per week
400 317,7 4,5
500 254,2 3,6
 600 211,8 3,0
700 181,5 2,6
800 158,9 2,3
900 141,2 2,0
1000 127,1 1,8

 

For the rank of Major you get 900 xp points and General gets you 1200. So based on your WR, if you can manage Major / General a lot , in order to get two Prestige levels per episode, you would need to play roughly 4 hours every day for the next 5 episodes.

For ranked: In theory it's still possible, but you'd have to get into the Gold league in both remaining seasons. Which is extremely unlikely with a sub-50% WR at T10.

 

For frontline: It's possible if you can afford the massive time investment and find the motivation. You'll have to earn 305k frontline rank XP within the remaining 5 episodes/weeks, so even if you actually play every possible day that means about 10k per day. A single match can yield a maximum of 1200 points (and without any experience in the mode you're probably lucky to get 600 on average) and lasts about 25 minutes. So very optimistic we could say 2000 points per hour, so you'd have to play 5+ hours just frontline for every day it is available. But less optimistic that could also become 10 hours or more, and every missed day will increase it further.

For ranked battles there are 3 episodes and you can earn a maximum of 5 points from each. The tier 9 tanks costs 10 points.

BUT.... YOu only earn 5 points if you enter the Golden league which is only the 10% of players that manage to enter the rankings by reaching Rank 15 in Division 1.

 

Mathematically speaking you need to reach Rank 15 and enter the gold league in both the upcoming Ranked subseasons which based on your skill i would say is impossible.

 

You will end up with 8 points (getting to the leagues silver or bronze in both coming subseasons) and miss the tank unfortunately.

You could find a very good player (super unicum) who is willing to do the grind for you.

 

For frontline we have 5 episodes left that means you wont have the prestidge required to get 2 tanks out of the 4. And you cant get the tier 9. You wont be able to get the Emil 1951 either.

 

Your only choice is the sta-2. You can only get that one and you wont have to play all 5 episodes. Its still a good deal if you dont have any premium tanks or have a bit of free time.

Uhm, yes he can. He can start at Episode 6 from Prestige 0 and play catch up:

 

There are some adjustments to make it even more enjoyable. Here’s what’s different:  

  • You can activate the Prestige mechanic up to ten times (instead of the previous three)once for every new Episode of Frontline!
  • Achievement of Prestige Levels is limited by +2 Prestige Levels from the current Frontline Episode.

For example, in the second game week you can reach Prestige Level IV, and in the third one you can reach Level V. Thus, starting to play at any time, you can make up for missed Levels.

On the contrary, there is no strict time frame regarding missed Prestige Levels. For example, if you start playing for the first time in Episode 5, you can catch up with the Prestige progression and reach all of the missed Prestige Levels (from I to V) any time you want, starting with the first Prestige Level.

Your question should be is the Tier 9 reward vehicle worth all the time and effort ?

Wrong. New episodes only unlock new maximum prestige levels, they don't limit how often you can upgrade your prestige. In theory you could still get the T9 reward just by playing the last episode, though that's probably not possible in practice (305k points = 255 general games = 36 generals per day, there likely isn't enough available time per day to accomplish that).

Well that sounds like a no life situation.

 

Guess its kinda doable if you start doing the grind to level 30 two times each episode for the rest 5 episodes. Im glad i dont have to.
