  1. This was my first CW Campaign and first experience with earning fame so I've been doing my best to learn. It's my understanding that if you played five battles during the CW Campaign you can spend the fame you earned on various rewards; camo, styles, bonds, credits, etc. A little guide for spending that fame..... Login to the WoT homepage and select Global Map under the Clans tab. On the Global Map, select the orange button thing. From this screen you can bid bonds on a CW reward tank (unless you earned a tank during the campaign) and spend your fame. Select the item you would like to purchase and then select Purchase on the item screen. Personally, I think the digital camos are the most cost effective purchase. For 150 fame (25 summer, 50 desert, and 75 winter) you can acquire 3 pieces of camo for each season (i.e. a full set for that season) for every nation. That's 11 full sets of camo for 150 fame. A second purchase of the digital camos is also available but the fame price is x10 (250, 500, and 750). I hope this helps!

    [DHO] Strongholds - Tier VI - Wednesday Night

    I use Q for PTT. I thought that was common. Had it on the mouse bumper but I changed that for the the mode switch (Swede TDs and French wheelies).

    Was there an announcement? Doesn’t seem to be any official info for NA. Players are reporting that the lowest is between 15,000-15,500. No way to know if they are being truthful though.

    Map Discussion 1.0 Redux: Serene Coast

    Holding back from C1 can actually work well. Enemy has to cross C1 and then cover a lot of ground, easy to spot and shoot them. However, everyone has to hold back. If two tanks move forward it is unlikely to work. You’ll just lose two tanks and then be at a disadvantage. Overall, C1 is still the prime location, even in a 140 with limited gun depression I’d start there.

  9. Their destruction animation is pretty good.
  10. No, it’s supposed to be faster if you play well.

    Consumable/Equipment Sale

    Glad the consumables/equipment sales have returned this year. Spent around 2 million on equipment and 5 million on consumables. Now if they'd only offer a camo/emblem/inscription sale.

    Frontline Returns!

    End of Episode 1 for me. When the new FL started I figured it would be easy to get to Prestige 2, maybe 3. After a couple days of FL I wasn't sure if I'd make it to Prestige 1. So, I guess I should be pleased with 1.16. Overall, I'm looking forward to further weeks and weeks of FL considerably less. I do generally enjoy the battles. I make credits.....but they made it such a grind. Getting to tier 30 takes longer; I think I saw it is almost 40% more XP then the first iteration of FL. Also, although I don't have numbers to back it up, it seems like progressing through the ranks in battle is much more difficult. Maybe that is players learning how to play FL which leads to shorter battles and less XP for everyone. The first FL, I expected to get Major or General. This time, I fell short all too often. I think a lot of us were looking forward to the return of FL and, unfortunately, it's lacking.

    Frontline Returns!

    Yeah, getting the two new tanks is going to be an accomplishment. I thought WG was being really generous with FL but I should have known better. The increased XP requirements are drastic. Maybe after a few months they will see a lack of player progress or interest and lessen the XP. Since it is an extended event they can make changes. Alternatively, maybe they sell some Prestige points late in the year. Let players make up the difference they couldn't grind for.

    Auto login has done that to me two nights in a row. Played at least 3 FL battles on SA. Have to remember to check the server before hitting battle.

    Went well tonight, three Majors and one General. Thanks to @Juggernaut41, @mx119, and Juggernaut’s cats for the platoon.

    I’m glad other people are finding the ranks seemingly more difficult. I try not to buy into WoT conspiracy theories but when FL was first available I think I could reach General about every other battle. Now it’s maybe every 8-10 battles.

    Frontline Returns!

    Played Soviet tanks last night and, besides a long run in the Defender, I didn't do well. Got to Major twice and was lower the other 2-3 battles. There seem to be less Generals then the first FL. I recall battles with multiple Generals per team. Maybe more experience with FL leads to shorter battles? On the other hand, I'm throwing away too many tanks and sitting around without a respawn. That's probably my main issue.

    Frontline Returns!

    I’ll have to use that tank more. Only really worth playing LTs if you have 3 fully boosted consumables. Even then, the lack of HP hurts. I like the challenge though.

    I have seen other people reporting this issue with the bonds purchasing.

    Frontline Returns!

    When we reach tier 30 and reset have we achieved Prestige Level 1? Passing through 30 tiers per week for 10 total weeks seems pretty easy. Especially since you can build up more progress if you have time (I think we can reach Prestige 3 this week?). I wish they would tell us what this tier IX is. Do they even know? The obvious answer is the Chinese TD you can see on tanks.gg but that is not an attractive premium for most of the player base. It has to be something more interesting.
