Tankers, the last episode of Frontline is nearly upon us!

Polish up those Progettos, dust off those Defenders, and wind up those Wheelies... you've got one more week to earn those Prestige points!

As a reminder there are 4 vehicles available for purchase with Prestige Points earned in Frontline:

  • Tier VIII  China - WZ-111
  • Tier VIII Japan - STA- 2
  • Tier VIII Sweden - Emil 1951
  • Tier IX USA - AE Phase I
  •  

Don't have enough Prestige Points for a tank? Or maybe none of the options seem appealing to you? You can cash in those Prestige Points for 300 Gold and 100 Bonds each between November 25th and December 10th ( 00:00 PT | 02:00 CT | 03:00 ET)

If you spent any Gold on tank rentals for Frontline,
that Gold will go towards a discount on any of the 11 Frontline Rentals between November 25th and December 10th ( 00:00 PT | 02:00 CT | 03:00 ET)

If you bought any Frontline Boosters for Gold and didn't use them, their Gold cost will be returned to you on November 25th (0:05 PT | 2:05 CT | 3:05 ET)

Yes, I do agree. There needs to be more for Tier 8's to do other than being cannon fodder for Tier 9 & 10.

Yeah I got tired of Frontlines after having all my light tanks and medium tanks and heavy tanks and tank destroyers and arty curb stomped by someone in an EBR FL hitting me consistently driving at 90kmh from across the map.

You CAN use your Tech Tree tanks in Frontline and many do, though yes Premium's are the mainstay. Probably something that should be addressed in future seasons of Frontline.

Ok, there's no convincing folks like this but if you haven't played Frontline it's a hoot and wheelies while present are no more, no less a problem or threat vs Random matches. They are annoying but you can swat them down and i see it all the time.  It was very satisfying to "chase down" an EBR with my Cent 5/1 actually.  What is asserted here about wheelies is just not true...period.

 

By the way, did you note how WG's promo mentioned:  "On behalf of the whole Frontline team, we’d like to express our deep and sincere appreciation to every one of you. It's the most epic mode in World of Tanks"

YIKES out of this whole YEAR i haven't played more than several hours of Frontline, i really need to get it in gear if i want a tank huh? Or is it too late and there's no possible way i can Prestige multiple times in a week? probably takes a ton of time to sink

Had a ball with Frontline playing with 2 others from our clan, 2 of us hit Prestige ten in episode 8 but still playing on. Agree with Mojo_Reising post and will be looking forward to next year.

Only complaint is the loss of friendly damage/fire penalties which has let loose the dickheads. One episode to go and the waite till next year....ALL GOOD :-)

  1. Glad to hear the boosters are going to be handled with the player's interest.  Thanks. 
  2. Thoughts for FrontLines. 
    1. First and easiest... Tier 9 would be great!   With so many Tier 9 tanks WG is releasing I'm thinking this is already in the works.
    2. It would be nice if there was a different end game.  Instead of the same thing over and over such as destroying the artillery, perhaps something different.    
    3. Instead of capturing an objective in each zone to secure it, perhaps some other objective to secure the zone.
    4. Instead of selecting a tank from the garage and then starting FL immediately with that tank it would be nice to just START frontlines, come to a menu and then select your tank, equipment, crew.  It would also be nice if you could say.  Play frontlines as T8 and/or T9 and click go.  Whichever you get, you can then select your tank from the in-battle screen. You would just have to allow for crews to be moved within that screen and ammo/consumables layout. Initially I was thinking of something similar to how WarThunder does it (dare I say it).
  3.    After about the 3rd season of FL it was starting to feel very "grindy" and I know a lot of people would agree.  Maybe the team can figure something out to make it feel less "grindy".
  4.  I feel like the amount of Gold and Bonds per prestige point is very weakly valued.  I can retrain 1.5 crew members to 100% for like 8 hours (at least) of playing the game, which is very poor IMO. I would say at the very least 400 gold (2 crew retraining) and 500 bonds.  Really if you didn't buy any tank and you made it to Prestige 10 you should be able to buy 1 bond equipment as your reward for an entire season of playing!  (10x500=5000 bonds for improved equipment). 
  5. In conjunction with the Gold and Bonds payout for prestige tokens, maybe give players the ability to exchange the prestige tokens for a discount of the other 2 tanks?

I put effort to finish the first 2 months of FL, then i stopped caring. I have not finished yet the third month, but will do for some extra gold and bonds.

 

the problem with FL is:

 

-Same OP payforwin fantasy tanks over and over

-Wheel-exploit

-No incentive to WIN

-Same map over and over

-Air Strike and bombardment is like playing against 3 times more arty than a regular game with 3 arties on each team

-Full of fantasy tanks. Make it tier VI so there will be more real tanks in.

Exchange Prestige Points for Gold and Bonds

Imagine if this worked BOTH WAYS. 


For a minute there, i thought you guys were using your brains...

FL was fun for about 10 battles then it was just a grind and all the stupid wheels didn't help, plus at the time i can play it took a while to even get a match.

More and more it's pretty clear that Frontline, or something evolved from it, is what should replace the current Random match mode at least for Tiers VI and up. Single Tier matches, maps that are both interesting, challenging AND allow  all the tank classes to work like they should would be the main draws. Never thought i'd care for the "respawning" element but it works here (though could be improved i suppose).

Some Prestige level give more than one Prestige Point, if you made it to Prestige 10 you got 27 Prestige Points.

Plus you got 7,000 bonds and 3,200 gold from the rewards tied to leveling up your Prestige.

Hey Domo,

 

I know you can save boosters between episodes, but can you save them between seasons?

 

Thanks!

I have enough prestige points to get the tier IX reward vehicle but I am not prestige 10. Is there any way I will be able to get this vehicle with bonds or gold after the event or do I have to grind out 2 prestige tiers in 4 days?

You will have to grind out 2 prestiges in 4 days unfortunately.
