You are participating by simply playing normally. you can earn bonds by:

  • Playing Tier IV+ vehicles 
  • Playing in a battle with Tier X vehicles only. Bonds can be received for earning 400+ base experience.
  • Playing grand battles - you can Enable the Grand Battle option in Game Setting → General. Bonds can be received for earning 400+ base experience.


Doing any of the above already contributors towards the bond pool, so if you do any playing on the weekend you will help increasing the overall number.

Now this is a new and interesting event, good job WG :great:

 

Although, Ph3lan could you please tell us what we can use our bonds for in the future? It would really help a lot for us that plan ahead and want to know if we're going to save or spend our bonds. Please atleast some hints of what we can use them for? Permanent camo? Premium tanks? :unsure:

As you "want to keep full transparency", how about telling us what "increase this number significantly" translates to in actual numbers.

 

Looks more like another attempt to push people towards T10 (to maximize bond income) over the weekend for no real reason as you can just change the result at will with that clause.

Yes, this would be quite useful.

 

Basically, if I hypothetically have 9000 bonds now, can I safely spend 5000 on improved equipment and have 4000 left for a future potential CW reward tank?

 

Or will price of CW reward tanks increase in the future? Or even better options to spend bonds will be added?

 

10 bonds to unlink permanent CW camo from a tank to fix the issue of it being locked to tanks?

For now you can use bonds to get improved equipment, directives and if you are a clan player special vehicles for the Operation Gambit campaign, so there are already several ways to use them. We are working on other ways to use bonds in the future, but unfortunately i can't share more about this at this point since our plans are not finalized yet.  Actually, I realized that we shared this information at WGfest about this: we’re considering making customization items and vehicles available with Bonds and plan to add even more ways to acquire this new currency in 2018.

Sure, the multiplier will be x30 :)

 cw camos is not locked since last update. any camo can move around many times, ( not talking about specific 907 camo for that tank made only)

 

 nvm , appears you are right about that, even tho it's plain stupid , all other camos can move from tank to tank, and appears cw camos a locked. .

Yeah, try it :trollface:

 

It was apparently a bug and they fixed it so you can't move CW camo between tanks anymore. Because of that a lot of ppl stuck with CW camo on some useless tanks they were grinding atm.

There will be any other thing punchasable with bonds other than the (amazing) improved equips for people who don't play CW?

Great.... as if tier 8 wouldn't be unplayable already ... now the last few tier 8s will ONLY see tier 10 games to fill up the slots below all who try to optimize bond-income for the event (and many may even start flaming tier 8s for reducing the possible total at the end by playing suboptimized tanks....)

People, don't run ahead... its NOT that good!

 

Basically, the way I read this is that you will play for someone else to get s**t load of bonds unless you are ready to sacrifice a LOT of time and effort to get it yourself. Obviously, the bonds will be available until the vault empties. So what you need to do is to play like crazy from the very start of this event to get a significant amount of bonds. Perhaps rare ones will be able to get in the vicinity of 5000 bonds which is the average amount of bonds needed for a single improved equipment item. The rest will MOST PROBABLY be presented the chance to give some real cash instead in order to obtain of the bundles already waiting in the doorstep of the premium shop.

 

My 2cs...
