With the upcoming changes to bonds usage in game, is it likely that they’re going to implement a system of purchasing bonds for gold as well as earning them too? WG are a profit making venture  so it’s not beyond the realms of possibility?

I feel there will be roughly zero chance that bonds will be sold for gold.  Bonds will more likely be purchasable for real money.  Look at recent premium vehicles, they very rarely get sold for gold now.  WG would like a new currency, one which people have relatively little of (especially compared to gold) for people to spend real money on.

They always said no.

 

They could but then it would make it just another in game currency which can be purchased for real money which would make it pointless even being there.  May as well remove it and have all the bond stuff purchasable for gold.

I doubt it. But I suspect getting them will be easier. Kinda like what they did with coal in WOWS. As there you can now get at least 400 a day via daily resource boxes you gain by farming XP. They have been giving more bonds of late via missions etc, as there has not been a ranked season for ages "tho one coming now".

 

Then again as Homer_J pointed out. Why make a 2nd currency you can get with real money? If anything I'm willing to bet that some items in the bond shop will be purchasable with gold rather. Again kinda like WOWS did with their store that only takes metal and coal. It did not take long before a few doubloon items did appear.

Wargaming said they will never sell bonds for money in the premium shop.

They never specifically said you won't be able to buy them for gold though (and thus money indirectly).

 

They were very specific in their wording.

WG said they would never sell the Mutant again aswell....

 

And they have more or less made bonds available for money with the upcoming premium account change.

Well... Victor never said he would. But once he left? Well... As that's what seems to be the norm. As long as the guy that promised it is still working on WOT. It won't happen. Just as the current man in charge said that the Type 59 won't be sold ever as long as he is working there. Once he leaves? Who knows.

 

But again... don't see the point of selling bonds for gold or real money. As why just not sell the bond stuff for gold?

They're looking at using bonds for a wider range of things. There was a vid in the Upcoming changes in 2019 announcement by WG

Because people have gold.
