With the next FL week, players will finally be able to reach Prestige 10. As we all know, combat reserves reset back to 1 with every prestige increase. I am very interested in knowing whether this will happen with the final prestige.
 
I expect to finish this month, but FL is a fantastic mode for credits and crew training so I might want to still play some more games in the final months of the year. Obviously I would like to play those games with a full complement of reserves and not be stuck with just one for the rest of the year. (So I would be forced to stop at Prestige 9, level 30 and not Prestige and claim the reward tank until the end of the season.) 
 
I realize this may not be an answerable question until players do it and find out, so if you are someone who is going to Prestige 10 and be done with FL this next week, can you please let us know what happens?

This is a fantastic question that I have been wondering myself.  I would say that as of right now, the answer is probably NO, they don't reset.  But that is simply based off of how the system has operated up until now.

 

However, I will be able to answer this question for you either late Monday or mid-day Tuesday at the latest.  I have 16 boosters to use up.

Wondering as well plus one to you both.  One for the question and one ahead of time for Warchild's answer.  I'll likely level up, but it is a good credit and crew grinder so I may hold off on that if they do reset.  Also a good way to grind tier 8s, especially the trash ones folks.

 

I'm with Warchild, but considering WG and their "it ain't broke let's fix it" view on things it'll be nice to have confirmation.

I'm happy to be the guinea pig on this. I don't like waiting to prestige - I want that tank!  and the bonds.

Max prestige will be 10 next week, so likely they won't let you move back up until episode 9.

The answer is no, I saw a video of a CC on the common test that wanted to take the special M103 out for a test ride.  He had to max prestige and when he did his combat reserves stay at max level.

I hope you are right. WG sometimes "fixes" things between common test and live, but nice to have some early indication. 

 

Also, pre-thanks Warchild for biting the bullet for us...

Thought I was the only one worried about this happening.  Thanks WarChild for once again taking care of the rest of us and looking forward to your answer.

I asked the same question at the end of the August week of FL and was told by another player that they had read somewhere that it does not reset for the remaining 2 weeks of playing.

 

Basically, you'll hold onto your level of Prestige 10 with the max for the remainder of the episodes.
