Attention Tankers!

 

We're going to be testing out 100% Frontline XP (1 hour) Personal Reserves in Common Test 1.6!

 

Starting July 19, Frontline is available in the Common Test so players can receive and test the new Personal Reserves.

 

How to get the Frontline XP Personal Reserve in Common Test:

  • Play any Random Battle to earn one (1) Personal Reserve; a Victorious battle yields two (2) Personal Reserves.
  • Purchase with Gold in the Common Test Store.

 

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.

 

GLHF!

You do realize that none of your frontline players cares about winning, right?  Oh, that's right, you'd have to actually play the game regularly to know that.

How about we give the winning team 2x Frontline XP instead? That might actually make it fun again.

Why not just double the XP from frontline games and not bother with a booster?

But none of this bonus XP earned on the Common Test Server count towards anything in the real client, correct?

Think that's a double edge sword.  Might result in much faster matches and less rank.

 Good point, plus one.  Hell folks don't farm now, if a win actually matters they'll be less harvesting.

Maybe, but you'll at least get more XP for that faster game. And queue in for next game. It'll lessen the grind at least, without making it p2w with reserves you buy with gold.

Just give people the reserves for reaching certain ranks in FL. Instead of giving us utterly useless junk like the camo/deadeye reserves, just make the last few levels give FL reserves.

A better question is why do the current reserves available in the game not apply to FL battles. They apply to CW, SH, why on earth do they not apply to FL as well.

So, lemme get this straight... personal reserves that I can only use if I play Frontline?  But I don't play FL, so... pretty damn useless to me.

 

Make it worth my while with, say a million credits and 50k free xp per FL game, flat payment win or lose, now you got my interest.

PR's don't work in CW or SH. (edit) the timer still runs, just no bonus.

Cripes, how long did I have that notion in my head. Just goes to show that they should be match based within a day and not based on a flimsy timer.

They used to work.  Did they change that and somehow I missed it?

Wasnt the SEA server already given a 2x bonus or something like that?

They didnt need personal reserves for that. Why do we????

I think it's a great Idea, true about the poor slobs that are ruining the mode, just running around playing grab [edited]!! Getting people to play the way it was meant. Hmmm, Its a step in the right direction. Some of us are in it for the respect of reaching prestige 10. Most important part to me anyway, just my opinion! the tier 9 American bad [edited]tank has a little bit to do with it also.

Are you kidding?  Have I really wasted over 150 of my best boosters thinking they were working because the timer was running?

I think this booster may be for more xp towards rank.
