 I recently came back to the game after a long burnout absence--haven't played frontline other than once or twice before that. 

 But that EMIL 1951 looks pretty good, even if it is or isn't a mediocre tank, I do like pretty-looking tanks. But will there be enough time remaining in this season to actually get that thing? I don't have a feel for how hard it is to get there yet, since I never played frontline after the ranks were introduced. But I'll appreciate your estimates.

 Thanks, guys.

They'll be selling FL boosters next time around so you can advance faster. If you want to play 24/7 like a maniac you should be able to do it. But, the reward tanks usually suck, so why bother.

They're also giving some away.

I've heard of people getting 3 prestige in a week, so that should be a little easier with the reserves at least. 

 

If you have a life, you wont be able to make it. Basically play 24/7 to have a chance at getting the tier 9 but maybe you can get the 1951 if youre lucky.

None of the tanks are worth it unless you are a collector. The equivalent tech tree is better except for the prestige x m103 mutant tank which whilst better than the m103 is still complete crap compared to all the other same tier tanks.

The tanks just aren't good enough for the hassle IMO. I did it for the gold, bonds, and oogles of credits.

Takes me about 15 hour to go up a Prestige. 

With the boosters should be able to get in done in 7-8 hours.

Do the math to where you want to be.

All 10 starting now should take 150 hours with 4 weeks left (37.5 hours a week).

Reduce this amount with boosters but they only give away 10 a week in missions and 10 you may buy with gold.

Absolutely yes. I did not have much time to play and I got Emil. If you play well and get major or general rank and do not waste your time you can gather enough points to get Emil. I am same as you. I like pretty tanks, pretty to me anyway. I got it just because of looks and as crew trainer. Go for it. You have time.

Boosters are for xp and credits. Not for rank bonus. So I think you are wrong.

No he is correct, they are for rank. https://worldoftanks.com/en/news/game-modes/frontline-2019-episode-7/

 Thanks, guys.

If you play well, getting 900 FLexp (Major)  per battle on average you will need ~34 battles per prestige (30500 total FLexp per Prestige). 

With ~25 minutes per FL battle you will need 14 hours per Prestige.

 

STA-2: 56 hours.

WZ-111: 84 hours.

Emil 1951: 112 hours.

AE Phase 1: 140 hours. (it requires Prestige 10 as well as 15 points)

For STA-2 you'll need Prestige 4, some 56 hours.For STA-2 you'll need Prestige 4, some 56 hours.For STA-2 you'll need Prestige 4, some 56 hours.For STA-2 you'll need Prestige 4, some 56 hours.For STA-2 you'll need Prestige 4, some 56 hours.

 

Upcoming FL boosters will be limited in quantity, 10 from mission and 10 for gold, so you can only shave some 20 hours from those numbers.

 
Even if you go fully nuts and play 8 hours per day that will get you "only" 4 prestige per week.

Keep in mind those 14-15 hour numbers are mathematical minimums. Depending on tanks, learning mode meta etc. a realistic minimum may be more like 20 hours before boosters. At 20 hours its 40 hours/week for the rest of the event to get to Prestige 8 and Emil. 10 free boosters this episode could get you most of a Prestige. No guarantee that that will be the same in future episodes - could be more, could be fewer with more for gold.

It's full time job hours even if you are playing well.

Isn't there still 3 more episodes of Frontline after this one? So there should be plenty of time to get that Emil 1951 if you play well and rank high every game.

If you play it right, you can level one prestige in half a day to one day.  It can absolutely be done.

You ONLY get 20 hours of boosters.

That is 10 boosters free from missions. 10 boosters you have to buy for gold.

 

You are still going to no life it but there still is time.

Note that you can get 3 games out of one 1 hour booster. So, 10 boosters are good for 30 games.

 

30 games double the frontline xp is worth 60 games in OP's calculation. Or, alternatively, you can think of it as one free prestige level. And you buy another one with gold.

All I want to get is the Emil.
