I know its already been done but it would be nice if they did again for this month, it might make players let the game go a bit longer...

I might actually play FL if they introduced x5 XP in stage 9 and 10.

Well in theory we may see a new one in september.

 

As to the FL boosters, 10 hours given for free is not to be sneezed at. Yes it's a boring grind but if you're decent at it that should get you quite a few prestige levels. I'm more annoyed that HK is still at 240ms ping so grinding credits in actual tanks is more of a pain. There's always playing arty of course which can make the grinding less intense, even if boring. At least you can watch stuff on youtube if you have a second screen tho.

10 hours of boosters... But how many hours do you need to reach that AE1?

Depends if you were sensible and played each week through the year and made the most of the double XP period. Ten hours with doubles (and a bit of luck) for a good player would do a prestige, maybe a little longer.

I never really pay enough attention to know exactly but as a rough guess maybe 10 hours for a single prestige level at about major average sort of level. So it really depends where people are at and what sort of results they are getting. I had a week off when we had double XP so hammered that.

 

There's also another 10 hours worth of boosters if you shell out gold, but that will depend how far behind people are and of course if they want to bother with the AE1.

It's an easy way to grind:

XP
Credits
Stock tier 8s

Without the pressure to carry teams of sub 48% oxygen thieves, plus you get a free tier 9.

Of course now they have the boosters for FL (and no doubt sell them) there is pretty much no chance they would do a x2 week again. I actually think the boosters are a really bad idea for FL, because it will on average make the FL queue take longer to get a match if people can get done with a prestige level so much quicker. It isn't as if there is any incentive at all to play FL once you go up to the max prestige level available for an episode.

 

So in essence WG are leveraging the mind numbing grind as a lever to get people to pay to skip as much as possible. This means there is actually less incentive for them to rush new maps in or change the mechanics and rewards such that the experience is more enjoyable. Yet another example of WG doing things purely for short term revenue instead of long term revenue and player retention.

 

It would be so much better for everyone (WG included) if they actually spent more time giving people reasons to want to play rather than reasons to pay to not play. Sadly I do not think this is lesson they will ever learn.

You're saying as though it is quick to grind the tank now.

 

U know how many people simply gave up right from the start looking at the requirements?

I did. Then they happened to drop the x2 prestige on a week i had off. And even if the whole lot isn't the goal, people could still try to squeeze out the shorter grind to an emil 51 which in all honesty probably has more utility than the AE1.

It depends.... if you are one if the people that have consistently played the episodes (and especially got ahead during the x2 week) then it is going to be. relatively quick to grind the tank now.

 

My original plan was that I was only really interested in the Emil 1951 and if the x2 week had not happened I would have probably not bothered beyond doing Just enough to get that.

 

Now with the free boosters and the fact I got to max prestige for the episodes since then, I guess I might as well stick it out because the play time required is not that much now.

 

But if you missed x2 I'd go with Ezz's  plan.

I'm half thru prestige 7 so hopefully 10 hours of free double pts should push me to atleast finish prestige 9 with two more weeks to finish prestige 10... that's the plan

in theory lol

They should gave given better tank token rewards for the first 3 episodes. The later ranks  give you loads so if you stuck it out this long then you might as well continue. The trick was to encourage people to get that far.

 

This is where the lack of another map and the lack of timely addressing of the map & tank meta balance early on really hurt everyone.

Apathy set in around episode 5.

Currently I am almost finished P8, and plan on having Phase1 by tomorrow night (we only have to reach 10, not finish it for rewards).

This grind is rediculous. On top of that the credit making showed for 5 months, now it has been removed. I was grinding a Tier 9 premium, now I can go screw myself .... thanks WarGaming for the bait and switch.

"Did not forsee this to be a huge grind" lmfao - you guys are soo out of touch with your product.
