As i've feared: far worse rewards. My eyes (as bad as they are) did not deceived me.

I'm curious to see how much xp per level it'll be and see if these 15 level are below or more then the half needed last time...

I was not able to participate in frontline because of this awfull grind needed.

And I still have a live.

710 bonds / episode x 4 episodes (without missions after reach level 15)  = 2840 bonds, not too much.

All I can imagine is that some people are getting paid from a competitive company in order to degrade the game. One is proposing new destructive plans and another one is approving these plans - two people getting paid from a competitor and game over.

You could play frontline whenever you had the time, you might miss a whole week, still you could catch up when you had the time. Not any more.

Frontline was played on two huge maps, now we'll have to play repeatedly on the same boring map of Steel Hunter. Why destroying the Frontline event? Any logical explanation?

the reward isn't that bad for such a short period compared to last year?

Probably because a lot of players complained last year that the FL was too much and too much of a grind.

Add with that, that the SH mode was liked by many so we got a little of both.

So those golden tokens can't be exchanged for anything apparently, nerfed rewards for less grind. Too bad… but I'll probably still enjoy FL more than randoms, so it is fine for me.

They should of kept to xp level + give us the boosters from first stage ! After episode 8 when they introduce the boosters nobody complained about it did they ?

Yup, but rewards are wayyyyyy much subpar, while the news imply it'll still be more grindy than the last 2019 FL episodes (the ones with boosters).

 

So more grind for less rewards.

 

Even for "full" 2019 Episodes, without boosters, if 2020 episodes need 2 times less grind than 2019 ones (and the news clearly says it is not the case), I still suspect 2020 will require more grind for the same level of reward.

(1M creds instead of 2M, no consumables, no gold, etc ...)

 

 

We really need to know how much points are needed to complete a stage.

If it's 20 000, rewards are clearly less good than last year, regarding the ratio grind/reward.

I expect it to be like 22000 xp.

I mainly used FL 2019 to make credits, do stock grinds on Tier 8 tech tree tanks and have a bit of fun in a way that wasn't in random battles. The extra gold, bonds and free tanks were just a bonus.

 

Seem like the credit making ability will still be there and the amount of grind to get the 3 tokens will be less than for a single Prestige level, so I for one am happy that I'll be getting a free Tier 9 tank. Have to think up a way to make easy credits for the 2nd half of the year though!

Is there some kind of system in place to catch up on a stage you missed? or buy the tokens? I know for sure that I will miss one week due to holiday.. so I have to play SH for the first tank and I will not be able to get the second tank?

That could be the case if you only play them for the rewards. I mostly play them due to them being a change from the random games and offer a different gameplay. If I make any rewards along the way that is a bonus. Some modes I liked so much I would play them for no or minimal rewards.

whait no gold? .. … .. your right O.O that's a big nerf to reward in my eyes

boosters, mehh. personally, they somehow end up just collecting dust as they grow in size, somewhere in a corner of my garage (lol). so I don't pay much attention to these things.

but no gold removed gold, that will hurt.

I played it for both, but trying to get the AE phase I made me play it wayyyy more than I would have only for fun XD

 

So this year I'll aim for lesser rewards (only one reward tank, not two), so less reluctant grind and pressure, it should be better nerves-wise.

 

But still not cool to see you have like 60% less rewards by playing only 30% less (not confirmed, but looks like something around these values)
