Title should read AE Phase 1, but I seem unable to edit that typo.

Gave up on Frontline ages ago, not even sure I can get anywhere near even with boosters.

Not with THAT attitude you can't! ;)

 

Also, when do the boosters come into play?

So having quad tracks does it take twice as long to repair if 2 are damaged? I wonder....

Does it for tanks that already have more than two sets of tracks? (279e, T95...)

FRONTLINE, EPISODE 7

MID OF AUGUST

Episode 7 is the best time to speed things up and make the final push for incredible reward vehicles! This time round we’re introducing something new to amplify your efforts on the battlefield, so get ready to storm the Frontline and find out!

 

But yeh I'm on like Prestige 2, so I'd have to do 8 Prestiges in like 3-4 (?) episodes, that is a lot of Frontline even with boosters and still no 2nd map.

They work like 1 track in terms of damage taken and mechanics. As if you hit the front wheel, the front one will be broken visually. But damage panel won't have 2 tracks to show on each side, still only one. As it will still stop the tank, and treat it like a single track if broken.

Even with boosters, that's 8+ hours for one Prestige depending on how good ranks you get. I'm at the cap, so 2 more episodes. But the only thing that motivates me now is the fact that the new map will finally, bring some variation to it.

It's still the equivalent of a single reset, though, which is the "normal" rate per episode.

How much XP is it per Prestige? I reckon I get General every other game at least so probably can average about 1k points per game, which would be 2k points per game with a booster.

So in theory with boosters I should be able to do a Prestige in about 15-18 games, so with an average game length of maybe 20 minutes, that is about 5-6 hours. 

 

Could maybe get two done in a week. 

 

Might be doable if we have 4 weeks left 7,8, 9. 10?)

Doable but will lose your sanity doing it and that is assuming that you have boosters for every game. I have been struggling to get 1 level / week and even that sort of pushing it ( general in about 2/3 of games).

Yes, the real bummer is you have to get to Prestige 10 to get the tank, but you can get the Emil with lower points.

 

I'm on Prestige 8 and might not be able to do the September FL if it's in the middle of the month as they say, but should be OK.

Yeh that is the problem, it's one thing being able to do it, its another actually motivating myself to push the battle button, we'll have to see how many boosters we can get and whether that new map turns up soon

Go to the full editor on the OP, you should be able to edit the title from there.

I have two Prestiges to grind for myself, then I'm also grinding from Prestige 2 For another guy purely based on those boosters, since in theory I should be able to make almost 3 Prestiges in a week with them. I am assuming how available they will be, which if it turns out to be wrong will probably royally screw over my plans.

No it's not. IIRC They said on the CT Page that while available on CT, it will not be available until the September episode of Frontlines.

The balance and looks mentioned aren’t set in stone yet as the map is still in the works. If we’re happy with the test results, Kraftwerk will supplement the World of Tanks maps gallery in September’s episode of Frontline.

Boosters that boost the rank xp? I guess that could make me, along with the new map, muster enough willpower to at least get STA-2... The deadening bore that FL grind is made me stop somewhere mid way between prestige 2 and 3.
