I'm not going to grab a calculator because that would mean I would have to leave my attic. But every sane person can go to the alley of fame and see that many of the players who are in the top 9000 are not going to receive enough bonds to buy their tank. With myself sitting at 500 bonds and my clan at a disappointing 3x I will only receive 1500 bonds. That combined with the fact that I have spend 5000 bonds before the announcement of this unexpected campaign on a 3rd piece of improved equipment and I'm now sitting at 1000 bonds means I will have to grind 1500 bonds in the timespan of *dum dum dum dum* 2 whole weeks (So generous...) After having 2 weeks of evenings where I wanted to put a gun to my head at the end of the night, I'm now forced to play tier 10 with the 268 4s still in the game for another 2 weeks. Luckely it's winter and I'm not planning on going outside. Luckily WG is a completely sane multi million dollar company with completely sane employees who will look at their ''statistics'' and see what's going on. To realise they have to do something. 

 

Or do I have to put on my tinfoil hat and go: WG is forcing us to play tier 10 for bonds and playing tier 10 costs credits forcing players to buy premium tanks and premium time, also they have implemented really strong armored tanks to force us to shoot gold to have a chance to do damage and earn bonds. No? Okey you didn't read that.

My prediction, ranked battle mode comes after this CW campaign. People will play it en masse, for they need bonds for their tank / future CW participation.

Then WG declares the ranked mode a success, irrelevant of how fun/crap the newest setup of ranked mode rules were, because so many played it.

 

Tbh, I feel it's a bad move for WG for restricting CW tanks like that. At least make it the option to get the CW tank by bonds or gold; for folks who managed to get a license. That way you can award a wider spectrum of players, namely those who got the time, but not the money (bonds) and those who don't got the time, but got money (gold) because in the end CW is a big time investment for all participants who try to earn those tanks.

 

PS: I assume WG still rewards the very top with their own tank? I really hope so, because if even the top needs to buy their tank with bonds, that's one crappy reward system....

I agree. I manage to get 5000 bonds FINALLY for new year event, besides that I can only dream about bonds.

I manage to get 1000 in FL and that's it for now. Sometimes I get 1-3 but that is way too big pain in the*edited*

1. Try to put a monetary value on the thing you want to use the bonds for.

2. Estimate the pain involved to get it.

3. If 1>2, good to go. If not, abort.

 

 

 

 

 

And of course

4. Profit.

There was enough speculations about the need of bonds in last 4-5 months from premium tanks for bonds or tanks like FV215b / Foch 155 and FV215-183 to last news ( again before 2-3 months ) that WG gonna cancel the option to buy premium tanks with bonds and give u option to buy some future OP tank close to defender for 10-15 k bonds. The point is that news  come for everywhere and ye most of them are speculations but still the idea in last 4-5 months was to keep your bonds and grind even more + tons of bonds from ranked season and the arms race you gonna have enough for tank. For example i got 17k bonds for few months playing without many game with t10 and without playing more than 3-4 hours max on every 1-2 days. Also you have time to claim clan reward tank till end of June so go grind mate you have time.

this is the problem with bonds. You have a 47% WR and have 5000 bonds, but players far more skilled than you have a fraction of those bonds simply because they don't want to take part in the same types of battle. Bonds should be about skill rather than just turning up for a battle.

I always find amusing when, to a self-perceived problem, an OP either rages or offers a solution that would solve the problem in a way where OP wouldn't need to do much at all.

Wake up guys! If you don't play pro league, bonds are virtually worthless. Please don't make bad real life decisions just to get a 0.2s shorter reload on some pixel tank.

Edit: or possibly some new tanks which you can easily do without

Still trying to figure out why bonds were added to this game to begin with.. How many ingame currencies does one game need?

for WG to make profit.

the only way to get them (in mentionable ammounts) is by playing T10, T10 can only be financed with premium time and tanks or direct silver buys (fort knox packages) both cost you cash and brings WG revenues.

nothing but a carrot on a stick to catch the weak minded - wich as this thread shows works properly.

They had multiple events this year where they gave away free bonds? The Ranked seasons, the free bonds event (with the fault thingy) and you could earn them in Frontline. Aswell as in randoms at T10 and special medals. That's 5 different ways to earn your bonds?

 

Edit: And grand battles. That's 6 different ways.

No one is forcing you to do anything.  Don't like the system?  You can avoid it completely.  
 
WG needs people to populate the higher tiers and to make people spend credits, unsurprisingly WG is a business out to make money.  Not to make kids happy.
