All this bonds idea is something cool but for me it doesn't make sense to collect 5000 bonds to spend on equipment that gives a change that is hardly visible during the game.

 

For example:

 

T110E4

  • aiming time 2,39 -> 2,34 = 0,04 LOL
  • reload time 15,92 -> 15,48 = 0,44

 

T110E5

  • reload time 8,17 -> 7,94 = 0,23
  • aiming time 1,65 -> 1,62 = 0,03 LOL

 

Is it really worth it? For me big NOT.

Some don't have any tanks left to grind and equip, then that's something new to work for. Also every little advantage you get quickly turns into a significant advantage, take a look at the extremes, you in with a good crew and equipment vs a new player with a fresh crew and no equipment it's quite the difference. They can of course not make the new stuff to good or improve your tanks to much since that would skew the balance even more in random battles.

3 x NO. It's pointless to spend bonds on Improved Equipment, IMO. I'll wait till they introduce something else, they mentioned some customization options.

If i understand you correctly you bring in your extreme example a player that has no equipment. I understand having a fresh crew but having no equipment is simply silly and noobish.

 

I don't mind having small differences between standard and improved equipment but i believe the cost for improved is way too high.

Well that's the case for many new players that can't afford it or simply don't know any better, stay a while in after you've died in a low/mid tier battle and you'll be surprised how many times you hear the sound for came net being activated on the most bizarre tanks. The cost might be high, but I suspect that it's that high due to the ways you can acquire the bonds and to make them something "special", something to grind towards, since in the end you pressing that battle button one more time is what matters.

There was some reward tank a while ago as well for 4k bonds I think, if I'm not mistaken it was the top 11k players from the campaign that got to pick one or something like that.

Yeah well I heard only one of the tanks was worth it (can't recall which nation is was...) so anyone who already had that had a choice to either pick a bad tank or keep the bonds.

I didn't look into it at all since I got no interesting in playing WoT in a competitive manner at all, "been there, done that" in plenty of other game and don't have time for that kinda of commitment anymore. Still though there is other stuff you can use Bonds for than just the equipment from time to time and I guess WG eventually will expand on it, it's after all something that will grant players something else to grind, something else to keep people playing.

Don't want to sound picky but really? 1 more time is important in the battle but do you think you can get that 1 more time by improving your equipment by 0,03? Really? and i'm dead serious :)

 

REALLLLY?

When people have all the tanks or at least all the tanks they want to have and you introduce something new that they can grind, yes then it's often something that gets players grinding it even if the advantage they get from it is minimal or even none existent. That's why meaningless achievements, trophies, trading cards, titles, skins and other fluff is so popular.

There will be the odd occasion where that extra half second on your reload will make the difference between getting the killing shot off and not so yes, there is use to them, just not "OMG, BONDS BROKE THE GAME!!" like some were freaking out and claiming.

Why didn't you pick 0,04 for your example ? :teethhappy: I really don't care about improved equipment but in my opinion 5000 bonds for 0,04 sec  is a joke or even for 0,44 sec. I understand some people like to collect useless things just for a purpose of collecting - try to watch TV series "hoarded alive" so you will understand what i mean :) but still WG could make this nice idea more appealing.

I think improved equipment is generally a bad idea. Some really cool cosmetic items which you could mount on your tanks would be a nice and fair reward available for bonds not giving you even the slightest edge over those that have no time to play ranked battles.

The amount of times you get to use the minute advantage this equipment brings is negligible, definitively not worth the bonds.

 

Better to keep saving bonds for CW reward tanks, underpowered as most of them are they are far more worthwhile than this "improved" equipment.

Only play randoms so opportunity to earn bonds is down to a few medals and that mission thingy last week or week before.

Decided to try bonds on arty, M53/M50, managed to shave 1 second off reload time. So this means I can get 1 extra shot off every 33 rounds I fire, oh wait only carry 20 shells....

As Tesco says every little helps:)

Omg yes....i see so many bots with camonet and even binocs on heavy tanks that should be at the front fighting but are camping in the back and sniping instead while i am in a light tank doing their job...

I think the Optics are the only ones that are worth it. Every single meter counts to meltdown camo.

 

VStab big maybe.

 

Everything else is junk.

Yes it can add a good few % to crew's.

No, what would be the point of it being "improved" lol 

Block Quote

Would you like to decrease the amount of bonds required to buy current improved equipment?

 

 

No, because to get bonds you have to play well and therefore they are a reward. And with that reward comes the improved equipment.

A few are worth buying on specific tanks. Not like a GLD or rammer. Maybe a rammer on arties, but not on others. Vents and optics are quite ok I think, but the equipment price could be lowered a bit. I don't think they should be improved.

Don't worry guys, new ranked season starts soon, so you'll have a chance to earn some sweet sweet bonds.
