as I might try ranked for a bit and see how game plays, and not played for ages wondering about the value of 5000 bonds for equipment vs 8 bonds for a directive?

 

simply, 5000/8=625 battles

 

so is it more useful to get directives and play any tank or play 1 tank for 625 battles?  as I have few tanjks I would play that much ever

 

or perhaps drop afe and get fire fighting directive for 2 bonds?

 

anyone played around with the directives?

 thx

Never tried ranked so opportunity to earn bonds is limited to medals and the odd mission for these.

But tried improving load time on arty, 12 bonds 1 battle, and yes can reload nearly 1 second faster. Is it worth it, probably not IMO.

​how have you found it?

 

how long you burn?

 

also does it stack if you have firefighting skill?

You burn for like 400-500 on T10. Yea, they stack, they give additional 50%.

Same here, especially in Russian meds where I don't have firefighting crew anyway.

 

Some people say using bonds for skills is wasting them, but tbh the advantages of improved equipment is so small, it's not worth saving bonds for them.

 

And I don't play CW so I don't need bonds for vehicles either.

 

Besides WG will sell bonds anyway for gold at some point.

That Natural Cover one is pretty nice if you have a low skilled crew in your LT...Cant log in (@ work) but how many bonds does that cost...?

Not so cheap, 12 bonds if I remember correctly.

It only gives you like 2 more camo, so not really much. Especially for 12 bonds.

Ah, that is indeed a bit rich. Too bad, will just have to grind crew training the old fashioned way ;)

Thx

I use my bonds when grinding new crews to give 6th sense early. I am never going to get to the point where enhanced equipment becomes affordable due to not playing ranked.
