Beware unless I am missing something, if you level up to prestige 4 you no longer will have access to frontline reserves as it seems there is no longer a way to get tokens. IN other words you are shafted from all the exp you can get.  DON'T Increase prestige to max until the last day of frontline.

 

If there is a work around or I am missing something please let me know.

 

Thank you

Prestige Levels and Progress in the 2019 Season

Using the Prestige mechanics, you not only reset your Frontline Tier, but also increase your Prestige Level.

There are a total of ten (10) Prestige Levels. Achieving each Prestige Level brings you rewards, including Bonds, Gold, Medals, and Badges.

Access to the Prestige Levels opens gradually, along with Episodes. 

You have the opportunity to get ahead of the progress by +2 Prestige Levels from the current Episode.

For example, in the first Episode, you can reach the third Prestige Level, in the second Episode — the fourth Prestige Level, and so on.

So, already in Episode 8, the most active and skillful players will be able to reach Prestige Level X.

No you're right, someone posted about this yesterday.  But it's temporary of course.

 

Folks OP mentions it (not ranking that max rank early) because, if you get to prestige 4 early, or any other prestige max rank in the season for that matter, you get stuck with minimum reserves.  You won't be able to rank up and get tokens so you'll be stuck with either no reserves or one token.  Can't recall what you start with when you reset, but it's one or the other.

This is a very good warning and heads-up. I'm nowhere near reaching prestige level 4 so it has no bearing on me, but it's a good PSA for those who've managed to get up there.

Unless my reading is wrong...you have maxed out the level you can achieve is season 2...which is prestige level 4 so you don't get to increase your tokens if you play more.

OK that's a copy/paste.  Maybe I need a second cup of coffee, cause I'm not following the math at all.

 

The bolded part, leaving it all for context.

 

 

EDIT: 

 

OK never mind lol.  Reading way too much into that.

 

You can get two ranks ahead of the CURRENT episode.  So once you complete episode 8 if you went in maxed out you will be at level 10.  

 

D'oh off to get that second cup of coffee...  and a clue. :P  Foxtrot foxtrot sierra what a delta alpha move lol. :facepalm:

Just an FYI, the most you should gain per episode to still unlock the tier 9 by episode 8 is 1.25 prestige per week.

If you play frontline for credits mainly and for prestige  , and if you are 1 prestige away from MAX     don't    upgrade  prestige until the last day of frontline or you will be stuck with 1 token for using reserves and will have a major handicap on earning credits.

 

half of you got it and others not so much.

To be able to get the first reward tank, I need to achieve Prestige Level 3, right?

 

So I need to cycle through the 30 tiers three times?

 

Just want to clarify. Don't play FL a ton....

You've maxed out what prestige you can reach for episode 2. The max prestige you can reach is "Episode number + 2." So in this case, episode 2 + 2 = prestige 4. In episode 7, for example, it would be episode 7 + 2 = prestige 9. Hope this helps.

Or wait until next episode to prestige up.

It was the same issue for those that hit prestige 3 during the first week, if I'm not mistaken.

You need 6 for the STA-2, 10 for the WZ111, 12 for the Emil 1951 and 15 for the "secret tank".

So it's 6 prestige points for the STA-2. So you earn 7 prestige points after completing level 4. So you need to go through 120 total tiers to earn the STA-2, right?

its because that is the max for this week, you can only get two prestiges ahead.  On a side note how you be already done with 4 prestiges, that is one prestige every 2-3 days.

There are 30 tier levels to achieve one prestige point.  So 6 x 30 = 180 levels that you need to work through.  

 

There are 6 ranks you can achieve during a single FL game.  They go from Pte to General.  Depending on how you do you in the game, the rank allows you to work through the tier faster.  When you get 30, you get a prestige point and the tier level restarts at 1 again.  

 

I hope that makes sense.
