Over on the SPG discussion forum, and possibly elsewhere, someone's posted a table showing how many bonds are awarded for particular medals.

 

Wouldn't it be nice if a simple "battle buddy" was rewarded with a bond? Hm?

Would be nice.

To be honest, I'm a tad confused as to how the level of rewards is worked out - I have received more for a worse performance (in the same tank):unsure:

It's the first iteration. Some bonds are awarded for stupid crap. No idea why steel wall should get bonds. It's an award for stupid enemies.

well.. not always, but I see loads of stupid players get the Steel Wall, for not playing good, but simply driving an OP tank.

Out of 3 388 285 games submitted to Wotreplays.eu there is 1 where a player gets a tier X Raseiniai Heroes medal and that is worth 15 bonds. Meanwhile a player can play 1 battle of Ranked in a SPG and earn 100 bonds for reaching Rank I. ;)

In practice they´re woth nothing. You´ll have to get several heroes medals to even afford one directives, which buffs you for one battle only. Yes I see the argument "why complain you got nothing for it before, now its something!" - that is WGs own fault. They introduced bonds with the ranked battles despite people being loudly against the idea of improved equipment and directives against a currency which only players can gather that are already doing significantly better than the broad majority. Then WG said "Dont worry, we will introduce more ways to earn bonds, so everyone can eventually get them!". If one of the ways the do this are these pathetic amount of bonds for hard to get medals, then they just defeated their own argument... something like a tier 10 Raisnenai´s should easily be worth one piece of equipment, as should be one hundred top guns, and then we´re talking. But this is just bullshitting the players.

Ye, I got about 20 Bonds this way since it was added.

Considering the number of games I played... ew. Just ew.

 

The only thing this really does is make me play the Ke-Ho even more since it's the easiest tank to farm Bonds in for me until I unlock and acquire the STB-1, which will take a while since the Type 61 is just not fun at all. I'll also get the Object 261 eventually, because I would not be surprised if that's actually more fun than the STB-1...

Not even OP tank. Sometimes it's easier to get steel wall in a tank with good armor than in a tank with great armor. I get waay less steel walls in my is7 than I get in my Sconq, IS4, E100s. Why ? Because a hull down is7 gives people no hope of penning while e100, is4 and Scoqn armor works against bad players.

I guess many don't think about the reason for awarding something to someone who gets "Battle Buddies".

True, it was so much more rewarding when there was no reward at all, right?

This [edited]argument again. WG brought it onto themselves that people complain about these measly rewards, and rightfully so. When WG introduced bonds, they promised there would be other ways to earn them and that improved equipment and directives would not remain inaccessible for anyone but the best of the best. Then they introduce these measly rewards, where getting dozens of battle achievements is still worth nothing compared to playing one season of tryhard-ranked. WG cannot appease the masses by promising bonds to be more accessible but then being so [edited]stingy with them. So screw that "its better than nothing" argument.

Yeah, let's make 100 bonds a battle and get improved equipment on every tank, that's gonna be so great.

Ye but getting one bond every five battles is a bit too little and incentives seal clubbing, which is awkward as f*ck. T67 with a skilled crew is probably a very good way to farm bonds as well as the standard OP tank of the month.

 

But I agree that the honor medals should not be an usable way of farming bonds on their own. I think Battle Buddies should reward Bonds as well, probably even moreso, so I agree with the OP. Maybe 50 bonds/ Battle Buddy, which would imply one bond a battle if you can make a streak without inflicting team damage.

Seriously tho only 7 bonds for a Radley in tier X or 10 bonds for a Pool's medal?

That's pretty cheap!

Usually you get a ton of other medals when you get a Pools. I've seen people pull 20-50 bonds in 1 game.
