Hey so I'm thinking of putting some real effort into front lines this time and I would like to maybe go for a reward tank like the sta-2, I know it varies but how hard is it to prestige once?

Thank you for your time!

Ian

Took me 2 days after work to prestige once, so not hard at all.

It all depends how many times you hit at least Major.

Don't die early, and needlessly. :B

 

I'm holding out for something better than the STA-2.

 

7 Prestige points, and rising.

 

Has anyone seen an STA-2  in Randoms yet ?

I can fairly regularly hit 7 or 8k damage and I'll have a few hours maybe 3 or 4 per day

Cool,  guessing they carry over to the next frontlines, thank you for that info, I might earn some over a few months

I played a couple of games with it after the buff, it's a decent tank. The increased shell velocity helps a lot when sniping, still wouldn't rely on your turret to bounce anything though because while the gun mantle now has some thicker zones it only covers a rather small part of the turret.

I've played 4 weeks (missed a week due to holiday) and I've prestiged 4 times and got to stage 15 on the 5th.

 

It's worth noting that stage 15 ISN'T half way through.  The levels get harder as they go up.  1 battles can easily get you from level 1 to 3, but 29 to 30 can take 2-4 battles.

 

I don't mean to be rude but your stats aren't great and so I think you'll struggle to do a prestige a week (unless you invest a lot of time at the weekends).

IntruderFI has good stats and I suspect he hits  General quite often.  I've only managed it a handful of times.

 

My suggestion is to play it for the credits and other stuff on the way and see if you do well.  If you don't then you'll know it's going to be a big ask.

Yep, few times during last few weeks. Not counting when I'm driving my lobster package.

Play arty and put smoke on it. That way you can easy get General rank. Also with arty you can defend almost 3 bases at the same time.

Points carry over and there's still 4 or 5 weeks to go, so don't feel like you have to rush it. You can easy get the STA-2 by the end of the season at least.

Interesting idea that I hope to try out but for now I have no tier 8 sh*tters

Thanks for the reply!

Then play passive spotting. Everything that you do to help your team is worth it and you can get the highest rank fast.

 

With smoke your rank rises if your teammates use it and shoot from it, also if they shoot someone who you spotted, tracked..etc, you don't have to do much in that case because they work for you.

 

 

Here is an example. I didn't do much damage, but I was team player. Watch rank when I put smoke and imagine how fast it is when you put it on 10 tanks:

It´s easy to prestige if you can reach the top 2 ranks often, do damage cap/decap spot. If you stay at the first 2 or 3 ranks most of the games it´s going to be a painful grind.

What's your job, milkman?

 

I've hit prestige once so far, and I'm maybe level 20 on the 2nd attempt.
