Thank you WG, now people who pay gold to buy these boosts will have to play less games in this boring game mode.  This mode sucked already, now it sucks even more.

No way. This will make it so much better for everyone.

 

Those that play to rank, get ranks faster. Which means they will play less. This will allow everyone else that plays for fun to play for fun together. Win/Win.

 Please note these Personal Reserves are under development, and all values and ways of receiving them are not final. We'll separately inform you about the introduction date for the Frontline Personal Reserves. In the meantime...

Yep. That's what I understood, too.
It will help a lot.
(By the way: people says that arty is "OP" on Frontline, yesterday I had a match where the last five vehicles, in earned XP, four were arty players - me included :teethhappy: _)

Regarding "XP", this appears to affect increasing your tier specifically. The update mentions 

 

"Example: Earning the top rank in a Frontline battle yields 2,400 Frontline XP instead of the previous 1,200." 

 

Which is the amount towards the next tier you get by reaching General.  So this is not a combat XP bonus in frontline, this is a bonus to advancing up the tiers.

I mean, its their job to make their game profitable. This isnt shocking by any means. It also probably wont make iteration until the 2nd to last month. Ive already cashed in for a sta2 since i really dont care. I may go in here or there to get credits and thats it

I think on defense it CAN be OP.  On offense, I find it pretty hard to grind ranks in an arty.  My first general ever was in arty with 0 respawns, but on average I think I do better in autoloaders.

then don't ()*^*()( play if, the whine from people to play a free game and get rewards for simply playing a free game just astounds me.. some people need to get off CNN and think for themselves, and stop crying because EVERYTHING isn't free for you.. WG still needs to make some kinda money ffs.

If people want to spend money to advance faster then whatever. It wont effect your XP in front lines so chill out OP.

This is excellent. 3 weeks of random with 50% giving doubles.  And if I run short I can top up for a few dollars that will go to keeping  the game running.

Well, we don't know yet that they'll be available for money.  They may be missin rewards or some such.

But what's coming next?  Ranked battle boosters which double your chevrons earned?  I wouldn't put it past WG

On the ASIA server they had a month that gave double  XP.

 

Just think how quickly that reward tank could be obtained.

IF readily obtainable in the game, this is what the mode needs. Let people put in work outside of the grind week to progress faster during it.
