So ftr: Get rid of this damn improved equipment and give us cosmetics!!!


But that will not happen soooo....

Good idea to give bonds for medals and not only for T10.


But the rewards are a little bit on the low side hmm?


Also why do you cap the bonds?

Nice, semi decent game on X tier gives you more bonds than Raseiniai Heroes' medal.

The idea is amazing, but there are a few points that can be improved. First, I think that capping out a match for no reason (And this happens WAY too much) shouldn't be rewarded any further by giving them bonds, defender medal rewarding you with bonds is nice though. Besides that, I think that giving you 10x as many bonds would be a bit more rewarding and allow you to actually buy something with it over time, because getting 1 or 2 bonds isn't getting you anywhere. Meanwhile (if you are good) ranked is a faster, and more certain way of getting bonds, then this way. Second of, perhaps give people the option to get credits instead of bonds. (so if you want to get bonds, then you can set it to bonds, and if you don't then you can use it to either grind money a bit faster, or don't loose as much) for something like 1 bond=1k credits (also with the 10x bonds thing)

Just useless... The most stupid thing in this game in a shared 1 place whit the MM... 


Why not try to do the core of the game better. Bonds, just OMG, waste of time for normal players. Still only for skill players. So stupid, let the better players get the best equipment. It just sound so wrong???

Nice. Finally, people who have great games will be rewarded for it. :)


Maybe issue a bit more bonds for the epic medals? ... like ... at least double? Right now the numbers seem a bit on the cheap side.

Great idea, but probably need to greatly increase the amount of bonds you get from a medal. You literally need thousands to even buy improved equipment, and getting these medals isn't something that happens every match.

There will be no realistic way for regular players to even consider getting enough bonds to buy any kind of improved equipment.


I am almost at 30k battles, and have about little over 2000 of the medals that fall into the category of being worth bonds.

By far, most of these medals I have are roughly worth about 2 bonds on average. Meaning I'd only have earned 4000 bonds in almost 30.000 battles. Which is not even enough to buy an improved gun rammer for example.

Even if my calculations would be faulty, let's be generous and say I got double the amount of bonds, 8000 in 30k battles. That still is only enough to buy 1 improved rammer, not more.

Which is not enough for someone who has played almost 30k battles.

Its good that you think about everyone, but unless you play ranked battles , its like you dont even give anything, both this medal thing or the ones won in tier X games. It would take months/years to buy one piece of equipment compared to what you can get from ranked battles if youre masochistic enough to play that garbage mode. It was a feature/currency not enough thought about before it was released, all this bonds thing. Better remove it before you ruin the game completely by giving too much of advantage only to some players.You need 1000 games in full tier X or grand battles to win 5k-10k bonds, compared to how much you can win in 1000 games of ranked battles if you perform well. Also think about the fact that you cant choose to play full tier x random game or grand battle, it could take 2-3k games to get 1k games that can give you bond, rest being 5/10 or 3/5/7. So not really fair to people who not enjoy ranked battles.

Why do you get less bonds for doing damage (High Caliber) and more bonds for capping (Invader). Surely you want to discourage capping as much as possible in general gameplay unless it's for a personal mission or it's impossible to win any other way?

lol, the rewards for the medals are just ridiculous

Approximately all my medals yield ~2000 bonds. Even if I assume that I earned all my medals in tier 10 battles, which I certainly didn't (!), they would yield exactly 4018 bonds.

And that's after more than 17.000 battles, 55% WR and 2k WN8 overall (don't look at recent wn8 though :hiding:), so I'm not that bad, and even I can't purchase ONE single "experimental" equipment.....after 17.000 battles.....are you joking WG?

The bonds you get for medals are way too low. I'm no great player (around 850 WN8) and played 5730 games, and I would only get 200 bonds, which is no where near any equipment. I would need to play almost 60k games to get enough bonds for an advanced tool kit. This needs improving

It's enough to have 6th sense active before it's trained for quite a few battles though.

I think the idea of bonds for medals is really nice, as you want to stay giving bonds to the more skilled players, that's alright. But the numbers you have here right now, are just not rewarding... You need 5.000 of them to buy any equipment with bonds. So if you don't want to play tier X (or don't have tier X), it takes an awful lot of time to get that 5.000 bonds and I think it's fairly safe to say that you're never gonna make it if you only get like 1 to 10 bonds for a medal. So for now I just spend my bonds on directives only, because those are not so expensive. So I hope you higher the bonds per medal a bit or lower the price of a the ''improved'' equipment. After that it might be actually pretty good. I also hope you can think of more ways to get bonds than you have now, I'll be waiting for that. 


Keep up the good work WG
