Episode 7 starts at the 19th of August with the introduction of the new FL personal reserves which you can earn in randoms (mission is available from 10 to 13 August) or buy with gold. The reserves give you 100% FL XP for 1 hour and you can acquire only 20 of those.

 

Episode 8 will start on the 16th of September.

 

 

The respawn cooldown will be reduced form 30 seconds to 10 seconds.

 

Starting from the next episode you can exchange your prestige points for bonds or gold even if you have enough for a tank but you don't want any of them.

 

1 Prestige Point = 300 gold

1 Prestige Point = 100 bonds

Good, it's not for gold only at first. And 10 hours of it is more then I expected. That's around 20 to 30 battles. A fair bit of extra bonus if you are behind.

Giving them away free fine, but why restrict the ones you can buy?

 

That is literally what buying stuff in WOTs should be about, saving time, increasing progress, so why restrict it to 10? 

 

And do we get more for the next episode?

I'm guessing the idea behind restricting the amount you can buy is not to p*** off players (like myself) who are 3/4 through the tedious grind without ever having these reserve boosters.

 

WG made this mode into one of the worst grinds ever but rather than make the requirements easier in the game mid season they monetise it instead.

Just greed and another sign of a company desperately trying to keep profits as high as possible before the game crashes and burns.

 

Btw the gold costs for these reserves way too expensive.

If you want stuff for free you have to put the hours in, if you don't have the time, you pay to speed it up. Don't see much issue with it. The paid for boosters shouldn't be restricted IMO.

 

But 20 hours should be enough to catch up, hopefully they allow more to be got/bought before the next episodes though. Two good games per hours should be possible, earning about 1k points, which get doubled to 2k, which means 40k points could be earned fairly easily with those.

True, but if you suddenly have time now vs before. You can get 3-4 ranks a week easy. I suspect they want to limit the amount of reward tanks too.

Out of prem time, and I like to maximize the credit earning from Frontlines, and I only have 1300 gold... So I have to choose between getting 30 million credits, or 15-20 million credits and accelerated progress (which I don't really need, if I maintain my current progression rate)... :mellow:

 

edit: can get 10 for free, that's nice.

I'm at Prestige VIII And honestly I couldn't care less if Joe at Prestige I Could buy the reserves and catch up to me in no time. But that's just me. :P

Frontline regulations, use them to check your position and how far you can go using these new reserves.
