There is no way you can get the AE Phase 1 starting from where you are right now.  If you want credits/bonds and maybe one of the other tanks, do it for those.  But give up hope for the AE Phase 1.  BTW - it's a nice tank but not OP in any way.

It's possible but unlikely. I'm trying to go from Prestige 2.6 to 10 in the final two weeks. I got up to 6.21 last episode using boosters while trying to maintain my sanity. Frontlines does turn WoT into a second job, and I hate when games do that. I was able to get 4+ Prestige levels in about 30 hours. So you'd need about 80ish hours to go to 0-10, with boosters, and there's 147 hours of Frontlines available during the week. The big problem is that you can't buy unlimited boosters, which I didn't realized until after grinding all week. If WG lets us buy unlimited boosters the final week it would be do-able, but you'd hate life while doing it.

Easy answer: No. It takes about 10 hours to prestige once without the FL booster. It takes about 5 hours with the booster.

You can grind out two prestige per episode (week) if you play with dedication -- i.e., like it's your side job.  That's what I did for the first two episodes, to max out my Prestige level (end of Episode 2, I had Prestige IV).  I got the Emil 1951 and the AE Phase I by the end of Episode 8.

 

As a practical consideration, I considered getting the STA-2, as I would rather have a trainer for Japanese MT rather than Swedish HT or American HT.  So I pondered getting the STA-2 + Gold + Bonds instead of the Emil and AE...also consider that you can use any of the non-AE tanks *in* FrontLines, so that's an investment that pays for itself.

 

In any case, for how relatively simple FrontLines is, and fun it can be, I think the rewards are a nice bonus.  But I wouldn't work for them.  Play it if you enjoy it...but ultimately, I do think it's very late to chase the AE Phase I.

Absolutely. If you don't enjoy the gameplay, the rewards are seriously NOT worth the effort.

 

If you DO enjoy playing FL, the rewards give you the incentive to soldier on, doing something you enjoy anyway. Win-win.

i averge lieutennant per match

 

so 350 points per 26 min (i have 88000 xp to go to reach prestige 10, so i have to play about 30+ battles per day 7 days in a row around 250 battles total)

 

plus count how many minutes it takes in queue, then the match to load, the the match to end

 

at least i like frontlines in general and theres lots of little bonuses to get

Are the prestige points not carried over seasons ?

We don't know whether there will be another season, so it's best not to bet on it.

But I really doubt it's going to carryover, that would imply keeping the same rewards for the next season.

It's hard to find any info on this, but I was wondering if it's even worth starting to grind for the AE Phase 1 this next frontlines episode? I played for the first 2 episodes, but didn't go all out or anything. Not far enough to get even the STA-2 yet so it'd basically be from scratch. Is this even do-able with the new boosters and stuff? Not sure if there are only a limited amount of episodes or if the mode will go away soon along with the chance to get the tank. Thanks for any help in advance


Lots of coke and coffee intravenously, with booster activated, you should be able to do it....Good luck!!

Nice! Well done brother! Hopefully you can pull this off, as just falling short after so much effort would be enough to make one physically ill. I maxed out this past episode and got both the AE Phase I and Emil 1951 , so there's no pressure here.  I have a feeling the unlimited boosters you mentioned during the final week of Frontline is gonna be a reality, as it'll be a great way to drain stockpiled gold before Christmas hits.

The Phase 1 is a nice tank, but no where near good enough to justify doing nothing but internet tanks outside of 6.5 hours of sleep per day for a whole week. Maybe if it was some OP Russia stronk!TM ubertank like the 279e. 

 

Just grab a STA-2, or if you don't like that tank, convert prestige points to bonds and check out what tank you can pick up in the new bonds shop.

Yes, it is absolutely doable.  You need the time and skills to do it.  For time, you must have enough time to play for that one week.  For skills, you must lead the charge in capping, getting into the defensive circles, or shooting them up close in your soviet defender.  You will get massive experience if you do this right.  You can prestige in less than a day without booster.  You can prestige twice a day with booster if you get general/major often.  You must know how to get experience though.
