"The most skillful players will be able to grab"... More like the most lonely. How can you stomach grinding so much to get >8 Prestige tokens unless you have absolutely nothing else to do all day ? I quit after 1 Prestige + a few levels... My Attacking team kept destroying the objectives too soon, arty on my team had tunnelvision and didn't shoot cappers or cap blockers outside their lane...

It's all about wallet tank and wheeled abominations if you want to become General.

Well i'll try it, but it looks like a heavy oriented map and i don't play heavies at all


Good, aside from the fast heavies and wallet armors they aren't much good in FL.

 There is fai chances you stay at tier 30 after increasing your prestige to X.

Because the tier X logo is always displayed with full green bars, representing the tiers.

I tried to play once in arty on FL just to see what it would be like, the queue went on for 5 minutes, counted down and then restarted, waited, waited some more, simply could not get in a game in arty on FL.  Don't know why they would even bother.

You can get boosts through missions the week before FL episode (up to 10 boosts).
+ During the Episode you can buy some for gold (up to 10)

 

So tomorrow you should be able to start doing missions to get boosters, in theory.

dunno, I play two hours from about 20- 22'clock on fl week and that's been enough to get to almost VIII.

the only thing I regret is that I can't play more because I really love frontline.

I have a question for WG staff. Am on final prestige so in the next episode i will be able to reset progress and take AE tank, but, my biggest concern is: When i reset the progress, get rewards, tokens for tank, There are no more prestige levels to play for, so i will automaticly reset my consumables? and there are more episodes to come, if i deside to play that week, form money or expirinece or just cause i want to, i will be stuck on level 1, one consumable for the rest of the frontline or, after reaching prestige level 10 i wil reeset, get the prestige, and stay on my maxed consumables? I like to play frontilne mode, especialy now because of the new map (finaly) but if i take the tank i will be stuck to play without consumables, and that scenario doesnt look like a reward, especialy for finishing the prestige level

It is my biggest concern also!

It would be nice to get that info from WG, it seems logical you keep your consumables, but, its WG so...

I also have a question for WG stuff. In game they say that for the prestige points left, we can choose to convert them for gold and bonds. Can WG put some special earnings (or prestige points) for those who managed to obtain the prestige X in episone 8?

Nope, when you reach the final prestige of FL mode, you won't be able to earn any more consumables.

Right now I cannot answer your question, we will see what the Developers will serve us. :)

Bots are another lose end by wargaming. I would ban everyone under 45 % winrate.

Not that it'll be a concern for me as I won't even come close to that, but that's a bit confusing to hear this is the plan...

 

So the people who spent all their time grinding to the end will reach the end, reset (as they are forced to) and now be stuck either playing frontlines with no consumables and no way to earn them or...give up?

Is that the plan, you want the people to get their reward tank and leave to let others have an easier time getting top ranks or is it just an oversight?

I've been told winning or losing does not matter for the amount of rewards you get. Still, what makes FL unfun for me is that you cant disable chat and so you'll have constant abuse and insults from 3 front chats. Amazed WG hasn't realised this yet.

They do have kind of a advantage with their new reward tank, and can still benefit from consumables of allies...It encourages teamplay and coordination.

Then just dont reset and stay on P9 lvl 30 and play with full combat reserves. It is what I am planing to do, as well as grind regular Tier 8 tech tree tanks during episodes 9 and 10. Then at the end of Episode 10, claim your AEP-1

Really please that there's a new map and that it didn't launch when I was away on holiday during the August episode.

 

Just hope the RNG gives it to me... instead of defending B on the other map time after time in a light tank :ohmy:

No problems with wheelies.
