Except for the back half of last year we had 2 for 1 boosters so it was effectively less.

It gets better, the FL xp requirements are completely different ingame than what was announced.

WG nerfed frontlines rewards brutaly, just like they nerfed reward for merit. I am only playing to make credits actually. Regarding the reward tanks, if i cant sell them for bonds then i will probably find other ways to make them turn into profit since i have no more interest in tier 9 reward tanks.

So announce that it's 'reduced' but make it longer than what we were grinding towards the end of last year. Then screw up the data entry and make it longer still. GG WP WG.

Now they have a choice of either cancelling/redoing this week and pissing those who have already played, changing the later weeks and pissing those who have given up (since tokens missed are not reattainable), or keeping it as is and pissing the entire playerbase.

 

Luckily I play steal hunters because I like the game mode.

It feels longer than last years episode.  Needless to say we gonna have to play it again another 3 times... So it actually felt longer imo and much less rewarding...

 

Last year if i played the whole day like i did today i would end the day at about level 23 out of 30 or 2/3 complete (altho the day hasnt yet ended today) i am still at level 12 after playing from the start of the day at 838 xp per battle (doing worse than last year 880-ish xp per battle) Better play only with the credit grinding mindset because this year all the good prizes are gone and so my motivation has decreased. Not sure gonna have whole days to play next 3 episodes anyway.

 

This was my part-time job to get some tier 9 reward tank? no, it was to grind credits, and the tanks will come along the way (or i will sell them for whatever they can be sold for). Mercenary business here.

 

PS. the Bouresque print credits like crazy!!! Excellece pick for frontlines. My progetto only did more credits than the Bouresque one time out of 15 battles played (one battle i played only Bouresque tho). I think it has something to do with the spotting i am getting and also the higher alpha dmg at apparently less shell cost.

Because it is longer. WG reduce things a little differently to the rest of us.

It was already edited up. It was so unpopular among the majority of players, that it was pretty much seal clubbing newer players. Think my winrate was easily over 25% by the end.

The teaming in Steel Hunter put me off very quickly . Might give it one more try this season and see how it goes .

Sig number 6 gone . In Armageddon - Day 1.  Note the date .

You're a weird mob . I'd like to go quietly into the night . I understand Mods are here to stay . I understand Mission / SH / CW rigging is here to stay .

I'll not bother the forums with these things . Let me go in peace . Not sure though why I cannot try and get cheap gold if it's ok for others to do .

It took me 27 battles to finish this part-time job. IF i were to play all the 6 days of frontline event, i would have to play 4.5 frontline games per day (27 divided by 6).

 

Assuming every battle takes 20 minutes on average to end thats 20*27= 540 minutes total played!!! (i know that every battle took 20 minutes to end for a simple reason: every credit booster of 1hour that i used allowed me to play exactly 3 frontline battles. And there was long queue times so it must have taken much shorter than 20 minutes).

 

540 minutes equal 9 hours playing frontlines. If the event lasts for 6 days, a player who participate in this frontline will have to play between 1.5 hours to maximum of 2 hours a day to get to level 15 (9 hours divided by 6 days). But doing it all in one day like i did is a BORING and LONG grind (altho profitable, 2-3 of my most paying matches reached 500k credits of profit).

 

Seems achievable. But that comes with the drawback of having less rewards than last year and also having to play strictly to the schedule without losing any episode or you wont get the tokens. Last years was much more flexible and rewarding.

 

 

My only regret is have spent all my free xp to try to bring my CDC commander to learn the recon skill... Its not a BiA crew (i have 2 sets of french zero-skill BiA crew still untrained, one set came with the tank, the other set got from lunar event signs of elements :facepalm: ) but would be a waste not use and train my CDC crew in this tank instead of starting all over again with the BiA crew i got... What a waste of free XP... And my CDC/bouresque crew still remain with 4.5 skills which is a shame if you consider the amount of crew xp i put on the commander (and some little on the driver to get the off-road driving skill)... I kinda think i should have trained the zero BiA crew and not used the CDC crew. But what a waste...

 

And WG wants to bring crew 2.0... I ll be watching... Will not use my gold until i see what WG will do to crews... I hope they allow multi-national crew transfers for gold. That will be useful for people like me who have unused crew.

Tank Commanders!

Please be informed that an urgent micropatch will be deployed on World of Tanks Asia periphery servers from 05:00 - 05:45 UTC +8 to fix the current issues with Frontline progression; the game and clan portal will be unavailable during this period.

  • All earned Frontline XP will be converted as per the correct values.
  • Conversion will occur automatically after your first battle played with a Sergeant rank or higher as per the battle results.
  • Missing rewards for all Frontline tiers will be credited.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your patience and understanding.

 

Lol what happens to those who already lv15

Nothing - the same as if they got to 15 earlier.

It only unlocks bonus missions - which would already be unlocked as they are already l15

This was after my first battle (Major - 900xp) today

Can someone please explain what exactly this micropatch was meant to do? It just progressed me with no adjustment.
