Most of this people probably already know from playing Front Line but for some maybe not, and you have more questions.
Where do you start and what you need to know to get the tank awards? To Prestige one time you need 30,500 points.
 
Tier levels 2-21 is about halfway at 15,700 points (2/3) and Tier's 22-30 (1/3) which is 14,800 points.
Tier 2 --- 300                                                                  Tier 22 - 1400
Tier 3 --- 350                                                                  Tier 23 - 1500
Tier 4 --- 350                                                                  Tier 24 - 1500  
Tier 5 --- 400                                                                  Tier 25 - 1600
Tier 6 --- 400                                                                  Tier 26 - 1600
Tier 7 --- 500                                                                  Tier 27 - 1700
Tier 8 --- 600                                                                  Tier 28 - 1800
Tier 9 --- 700                                                                  Tier 29 - 1800 
Tier 10 - 700                                                                  Tier 30 - 1900
Tier 11 - 700
Tier 12 - 800
Tier 13 - 900
Tier 14 - 900
Tier 15 - 1000
Tier 16 - 1000
Tier 17 - 1100
Tier 18 - 1200
Tier 19 - 1200
Tier 20 - 1300
Tier 21 - 1300
This can be done ten times for a grand total of 305,000 points. :amazed: 
 
The rank you get in each battle is for experience points to move up the level of tiers 2 to 30.
Private ------- 0
Sergeant ---- 150
Lieutenant --- 350
Captain ------- 600
Major ---------- 900
General ------ 1200
 
Example of time required to Prestige.
50 (games) X 610 ( average rank XP) = 30,500 (one Prestige)
50 (games) X 24 (average min. for battles) = 1200 min. or 20 hours
This can be done in less or more time depending on the rank you get for the hours you play. :playing:
 
Ten Levels of Prestige points can be achieved in 8-10 months:
Prestige -- Level Points
1 ----------- 1
2 ----------- 2
3 ----------- 2
4 ----------- 2
5 ----------- 2
6 ----------- 2
7 ----------- 3
8 ----------- 3
9 -----------
10 --------- 6
 
The most persistent and skillful players will be able to choose only two award tanks with Prestige points. The month of June will be the earliest a person will have enough points to get the Emil 1951. :)
 
Prestige points needed to get Reward Tanks:
6 points ------------------------------------ Tier-8 STA-2
10 points ----------------------------------- Tier-8 WZ-111
12 points ----------------------------------- Tier-8 Emil 1951
15 points with Prestige level 10 ------ Tier-9 ?unknown? it's a secret, hidden in a   :bush:
 
I hope this helps and if anybody needs more help send me a PM in-game.
I already have done Prestige 3 and plan to get the Emil 1951 and the secret Tier 9 tank.
I know some people will hate the time Front Line takes :facepalm: and would just perfer the option to buy these two new tanks, :coin:
but I like it and maybe I can help and make a new friend in WoT while doing so. :)

Actually I have no interest in the tanks. I just enjoy the flexibility FL provides in play style. I enjoy the maps and how you can actually play tanks as the game should of intended. Your not stuck in a cracker box map playing peek a boom with a tank you cant pen without wasting credits on prem. You cant flank because your packed into a map that doesn't allow it and being spotted from spawn to spawn.

If I only make it to level 11 will I start from there next month or start over. I only got to play a couple of hours this week so that is all I could get in.

What is your major reason?

The map?

The fact that you are playing tier for tier and most of the tanks you see you can penetrate without dipping into premium?

 

I like the options you are given and you can select your tank (after you die) and choose the tank that works best for the situation at hand. Not needing or feeling the need to hit the 2 key. The fact that everyone doesn't have a tank list on the screen with their pretty coloured mod calling people unsavory names based on their colour. I don't mind the 20 minutes per game because you always have a tank to use, pretty much. There are still corridors but there are so many of them; there's not only 2 or 3 corridors. ...and getting full HP ammo racked is just shrugged off.

Yes. Frontline after tonight is just switched oiff from being able to queue. The event is still active; the queue process isn't. So where you finish today you begin March 11th.

140 games to reach Prestige 3. Now I only have to do 1 prestige a month at 30-40 games.

Not sure what the big deal is?

That is the way it was for me.

 

Felt awfully grindy today getting to 3rd prestige,but I look at it as I can take it slow the rest of the season now.

It gives so much stuff (e.g. 15 large consumables per teen tier) there's only so much complaining about the grind to be had. WG essentially demanding no-life and/or unhealthy play for the ultimate reward though, that's a bit much. It would have been fine at the old values.

Yeah you just enjoy  the barrage of heavy's and TD's that do way more damage, have way better reload times, and way better accuracy. Your comment make no logical sense!

Yeah,  you just embrace the never ending barrage of heavy's and TD's that do way more damage, have 10 sec reload times vs 30 sec reload times, and astronomically better accuracy. How do'es that make any sense at all?  Please don't get into that argument about sitting in the back and not facing the enemy up close and personal. Come to think of it that does not make any sense either. I can shoot holes in you at 300 meters with a heavy just the same as this peek a boom dance you heavy's do every match. It is quite funny to watch the backward and forward dance I see from above in my arty so funny in fact it make me laugh. When my round land on top of that tank and doe's 300 damage. Hey,just be thankful it was not a TD slapping you in the side for 550 damage and in 8.5 seconds he is going to slap you for another 550. Something I am taking you did not take into account before your post. AF

The big deal as that not all of us have the time to put in. We might be premium players, we might spend money on the game and some of us might even be good players. But spending 20 hours in a week equals almost 3 hours a day. This is a LOT of time to be spending on WOT.

 

Plus, if you are a casual player and manage to make 1 prestige per week, all it takes is one week where you cannot play WOT due to real life commitments. This is the case for me: I'm getting married and going on honeymoon when next month's FL is scheduled to hit. 

 

What would make it more reasonable? IMHO, make FL a weekend to weekend event. I.e. start on a Friday and end on the next Sunday. Include two weekends and 5 week days. This allows casual players more time during weekends.

First week I finished Prestige 1 and then 25 of the 2nd.

 

As of now, I've finished 3 Prestige stages and am currently sitting at 21 of the 4th.

 

The way I figure, for the balance, I just have to finish the 5th Prestige in the next round and then just do 1 per round for the balance to complete.

 

My suggestion to those that are doing it, try to do at least 1 full Prestige per round and complete a few stages of the next, this will eventually allow you to end up being 1 or maybe even the 2 levels above the rounds you complete.

 

Good luck to all.

Ended up being just shy of prestige level 2 after this week.  I'm hoping to get far enough to get the Emil as the WZ111 doesn't look all that amazing on paper.
