I think I've picked up 28 so far? (only average WR)

 

It's just another way to reward unicums for being unicums, and make them even harder to compete with.

If you are routinely picking up epic medals every single game, then pimping out every tank they own won't take them long.

 

good job WG, *golf clap*

The qeuipment makes next to zero difference unless the particular stat in the tank is overly bad.

 

For example, the improved ammo rack reduces my Skorpion G reload time by just 0.3s....for all that work it really isn't worth it.

How many those players pick up will depend on the matchmaker as well. You won't get much high caliber medals if your teams are really good all the time, for example. I mainly get them for Confederate medals, which isn't much, but I receive it a lot of times.

It depends on the type of equipment you use and you should 'test it', by calculating the effect by using for example a website like tanks.gg

If I would use an improved rammer on my T30 it would make a huge difference. It will probably get down around 1 second.

 

I have finally enough to buy my first equipment piece, but I wait to buy it, until I have the tank I want to use it on.

I got to Silver league in both Ranked seasons. I ended up with roughly 9k bonds. Then I received another 3k bonds for Operation Gambit CW campaign (max was 7k).

So far I bought an improved Vent, which I used on multiple tanks, until WG changed the price for demount from 10 gold to 200 bonds. That extra 2% improvement is not noticable, so in my experience this "bond hype" is overrated. Bonds don't break the game, it makes the game more interesting. If you want to greatly improve your tank, then use food consumable.

 

edit: Does it worth playing Ranked seasons? Yes, absolutely, getting to Silver league is easy and you get a nice amount of bonds.

      well .. i have 2.300 of bonds and played only in the first ranked battle ... that was a mistake that i did not go in the second one .. and my clan did not have just one team for clan wars in this Operation gambit .. so i did not fit in .. i did not get from there only 250 , i think ... BUT ...

     If they have in mind that in time they will sold some special tanks , like those clan wars reward tanks for BONS , then i say that the number of bonds / medal it is enough ... you need to be good / medium to put your hand on one of those tanks ... 

If you play tier X , you can make , like 100 bonds a day .. a player like me who plays few battle every now and then ... to get 4.000 of Bonds that is not much for a reward tank .. that was the price for a reward tank in this operation Gambit ??? I think yes ... it is a little hard , but it is worthed  ... So .. keep them how they are now

But then, if you happen to have enough at some point to be able to afford it, you might just as well.

 

 

Anyway, IF I had enough bonds to buy anything and I had to pick just one module I'd go for the ventilation. I think it's the best deal. While other modules are 25% better than their standard counterparts the vents are 50% better, and the boost to overall tank performance, including DPM, seems to me as a better choice than twice the boost to raw DPM, but nothing else.

So. Much. Salt. :trollface:

 

Want to get some bonds? Start earning them. Its really not that hard even for bad players like you to get bonds in ranked battles..All you have to do is grind enough battles. 

 

Personally I havn bothered as its noth worth the effort. Ranked battles are boring as F. I have 2,5k bonds or something like that. Will probably never use it.

 Why do you care? Do you think a 2% better gun rammer is going to double your PR?

18

around 4600

5. What equipment will you buy or have you bought so far?

I am thinking about buying improved optics. I think this does make a good difference compared to other improved equipments.

Q: You have to be kidding with the Bond income in Random Battles.
A: It’s on purpose. The Bonds were introduced for those who got gud.

I barely took part in ranked and haven't played this campaign.

I have around 2,500 bonds.

 

Don't see why people have an issue..?

Well, for what's it worth, i participated in both season one and two of RB. got both bronze i think which wasn't even enough for ONE piece of improved equipment (with a lot of time invested). Gradually i saved up to 5k bonds and this week bought iimproved vert stabs. And really, i can't notice the difference at all. So all in all, i wouldn't bother unless you like playing RB's in the first place.

I don't think bonds have a place in the game at all and should be removed or if not the gains given only be usable in clan or grand battles.

Random battles are bad enough without giving only a smaller minority access to the higher level equipment.

Got 900+ by just playing the game and getting to 1st rank everytime in ranked battles (= 1 or 2 battles).

Not sure what to do with them though. Equipment much too expensive, the 1-hame advantages seem a waste. So yeah...
