I have a serious question:

Bonds will be available for purchase in SHOP for money? 

Why do I ask .. there will be players playing Operation Gambit in the first 11.000 players who will get the chance to get the reward Tank But they will not have enough BONDS to get it.

 

For example:

Player on 9000th place will get 250 bonds.

His clan will be on 150th place. He will get multiplayer x2.

That means a "grand" total of 500 bonds.. but the tank will cost 4000 Bonds..  So .. Is there any plans for WG to put Bonds in SHOP available for purchase.. because the rules are not making any sense otherwise. 

 

By my calculations only few players will get the tank with the bonds reward from this campaign:  

Player on 150th place gets 1000 Bonds 

His clan on 80th place get multyplayer x4 

That means 4000 bonds

 

So only 150 players will get the tank?  Can you please explain this WG?  What about the rest of 10850 players? ok.. let's say another 2-3k players already have bonds from Ranked battles.. but what about the rest?!

There is a reason i am not even bothering with this campaign.
The rewards are badly designed, way less than other years and not worth the effort.

Well, I wouldn't be surprised at all if they put bonds in Premium Shop after campaign.

It is almost sure not all from top 11000 will have enough bonds to get tank.

 

And than WG will come in rescue with special Bonds bundle for "only 50€".

I kind of have feeling this entire Gambit campaign reward system is just designed as cash grab by selling bonds in premium shop.

So far WG have said no to bonds for real money.  You can earn them in other ways though and I am sure there are plenty of players who would welcome 500 extra bonds to go toward some improved equipment.

 

Assuming these are the same bonds we already have.

How about you use the bonds you earned in ranked and the ones you earn from random battles and do something radical like, you know, SAVE UP? Then when you got your 4000 you can get the tank then.

 

But I suppose whining and demanding free stuff its easier.

He doesn't demand free stuff. He wants to throw money at it. :teethhappy:

 

Dafuq man... I'm not surprised Wargaming doesn't listen to the players that complain when players seem to be perfectly willing to throw money at the game even when the game is becoming worse with every damn patch.

There's no way they're gonna sell em for money. They use em to make people play (unattractive) new game modes.

Wonder if WG are basing the calculations on the Top players only coming from the top clans. 

What would the reward be for a player placed 11,000 on the 110th clan?

If that player can't qualify for the tanks then their rewards system is completely borked.

free stuff?

People have to play a whole month every day for hours a day. Thats not free. And then after all that they still have to buy it? 

How ridiculous is that?

Not really ridiculous. I'd rather have an option to spend bonds on equipment. The rewards could be better, I agree.

Sure, you could  have the option, but then atleast garantue everyone in the top11k gets 4K bonds to make a choice.

I'm sure more then 11 000 people would be pissed if they sold it in the store. Considering it would definitely be considered a form of "pay2win" more then anything, since you can use it to improve any tank, better then anyone that don't buy it can.

 

WG should improve the rewards instead. As it don't seem worth the time or effort either way.

WG would not be THAT stupid to put bonds up for sale.

At least I hope so.

sincerely.

Good thing is I aint even playing this campaign since the rewards are so trash.

Maybe a battle here and there when I can find the time and can be asked to spend my now precious freetime on this game....

 

E1: OP read my signature. But then again the "Mutant" was also supposed to never be sold again... So give it another year and you will be able to buy bonds for money. Maybe not directly but in some bundles.... Something like "Buy Fort Knox, get 5.000 bonds on top! !11!11!!one!1eleven!" aka technically they dont sell them but gift them to you.

I thought the words they used were more along the lines of they have no current plans to sell bonds for money. The translation is they can change their minds and claim they weren’t lying.

10.1.4. When exchanging bonds for vehicles, it is possible to use both the bonds received for Operation Gambit, and the bonds that were received for other achievements.

 

Or read "Our rewards are so crapyou have to use bonds earned doing other stuff."

Why are they using bonds at all for the tank reward? Surely if you make the 11000 players you have earned the reward though time played.

You might want to read my signature. I dont think that can be interpreted in any other way than what it actually says.
