Ranked season rewards are incoming. How do you spend your bonds, equipment, directives or just stockpiling for later use?

 

What tanks make the most sense to pimp out with improved equipment?

All 3, I use firefighting directives on most tanks, improved equipment on 121b and maus, and still have 27k bonds, 31k+ after ranked rewards

Except for a few directives, I won`t spent any bond cause I still hope WG will give me the chance to buy myself an Obj 907, like some „special“ players did not so long ago!

Never seen a tank for bonds outside of clan play. Will it ever happen?

Just stockpiling now, currently over 40k + 4k on the way. Recently in new shop WG introduced sets for improved equip that are a little bit cheaper (i.e. 9k for vent + rammer), if they will add some kind of discount I can consider small shopping.

how the hell did you get like 40k bonds? you get them for clan wars/strongholds too or what? I've got only 12.5k including what I already spend on equipment so far. not much Grand Battles the last few months, so it was hard to get some. got tired of Ranked, because of the trash environment and stopped playing it, getting my out of the third league, so no extra bonds for that.

3x 1st league in Rankeds, (1st beta bronze or silver), Frontline, tournaments in football mode, special offers in random battles and a lot of Tier X play (grand battles switched off). What I earned in clanwars I spend for reward tanks.

I've done missions some weeks ago where you could earn 200 each day for like 4 or 5 days. Playing Ranked, full tier X battles and Grand Battles. Also trying to focus on getting medals, which don't give a lot, but on the long road it helps.

Didn't get high in Ranked any time. I don't like the environment, since it's only about getting yourself high on xp, not about winning, for loads of players. Since I'm not good at playing tier 10's (also hate the environment at that level, as there are too many trash/selfish players in it) it's hard to get bonds like that and I don't want to grind OP tanks.

Don't know how you got them in football mode, as I also played it and Frontline didn't get it either, as far as I remember.

 

On-topic: most equipment are no worth it, since you don't gain much with it, so all the drama people made of it (that the best players would get an extreme advantage in battles) is not true.

In the football tournament you could get bonds in the last two of the four stages, up to 9k in total if you ended in the top league for all three tanks in both phases.

For Frontline you could get I think up to 1300 bonds when finishing the rank progression four times.

Ranked Gold league is like 8k bonds each season, even bronze league is 2-3k.

In Clan wars campaigns one can get up to 7k bonds depending on where you and your clan finish in the ladder.

Playing T10 randoms you get a few bonds each battle on average (over all templates), so that can also net you a couple thousand bonds as well over time.

And last but not least there were some other specials where you could get a couple hundred bonds as well.

 

So 40k+ is a lot, but not unreasonable if you're actually focusing on it.

Now I remember the bonds you could get for Frontline. I did get them myself as well, just forgot it.

Yeah I focus on getting them, but it's going kinda slow. I'm about to get my 3rd equipment piece, but not sure for which tank and what exactly, as I want several more.

 

Do you think it's worth it to get a gun rammer for tanks with long reload? for dpm it doesn't matter much, but it could save you in close combat for example.

Personally I want to spend them to pimp my garage. Add a strip club, a bar, a drunk Santa claus, and a graphic orgie of the Kardashians

I've spent all 58k/59k of what I have received already. Another 4k from this ranked season will net me enough for one more piece of advanced equipement for my CW tanks.

Stuffed under the mattress for a rainy day ... improved equipment doesn't really appeal, especially with the silly amount of bonds needed to demount.

Same. I've not used a single bond yet, I have over 18k. Doesn't sound like much after seeing some of the posts in this thread... :ohmy:

The most reterded is that I win sh*t on the tanks I have it on. every 4k combined battle is screwed by own team, but of course win the trash ones.

Almost got 13k but havent really been trying to get them. Hardly play ranked. Don't play clanwars and did 3 games in the footballmode. Only time I went for it was the Frontline and got the 1000 for finishing the round to 30 4 times. Just stock them indeed like most, since I see no use for them in randoms and can not decide on what tank to put them on also.

 

And I do believe at one point they will be selling clanwar tanks and most likely for bonds. When enough clans/players have the 907 or the others they have to come up with some new tanks as rewards and for sure they want to milk the current rewards by selling them.
