With all the directives we’re getting left, right and center from bloated bundles, rewards and missions, shouldn’t we have a way to exchange them?

i think the vast majority of directives never get used, but we can’t sell them.

 

Why not let us exchange the directives we don’t use for ones we do use.

If the exchange rate was 2 for 1 or even 3 for 1 that still would be more useful than stockpiling unused directives.

If there is ever going to be an "easy" way for you to get bonds, I guarantee you it will not be from selling directives and such. :P

Though I suppose WG could sell them for credits.

Who is this "we"?

 

I for example ran out of fire extinguisher directives, despite me buying some for about 800 bonds some months ago.

in between I got that 6y bonus bonds thing which got invested into an enchanted stabilizer for Type 59

 

right now I have less than 30 directives of any kind left and the bonds are slowly rising again, about 300 or so iirc.

I rarely use them, but when I do it's generally the 6th sense one for newer crews, or the ammo rack protection for my Chinese tanks....if I could swap the types I never use, that'd make sense. Obviously selling them for credits or bonds would be nice too, but less likely to happen I think.

I don't think you understood the OPs post....he was talking about exchange between types, not selling,

I made a similar thread a while ago:

http://forum.worldoftanks.eu/index.php?/topic/703778-directives-and-bonds/page__p__16895800#entry16895800

 

Would be nice to be able to swap the directives I don't use and never will for something I actually will use that's for sure, have about 800 of them in the depot now that I will never use.

Exchanging directives is a nice feature but selling them for bonds is never gonna happen

I was talking about exchanging one kind of directive for another kind of directive. Not about selling them for cash or bonds.

right now I have less than 30 directives of any kind left and the bonds are slowly rising again, about 300 or so iirc.

 

And that's just it. Some use all of them, some like me only use a few and feel others are 100% useless. I use the camo and 6th sense directive on fresh light tank crews, and they have run out fast. Some I only use on one or two tanks. Thus I get more then I use like shell organizer and battle maintenance. Then I have some I will never use.. at all, like duty comes first and focus on target I have over 300 of. Then you have others that could not care less. 

 

So.... having the option to sell them, even for silver would be nice for most either way I suspect. Be that if you only use some, all or none.

 

But regards to that, WG have only said it might come later. But not for now.

I would accept either option; sell them for credits or bonds, or exchange them - just let me do something with them other than having so many directives clogging up my recently cleaned out depot (thx BM!).

Why do you think WG is so generous with giving out directives?

You get something for free and yet you complain that you want to be able to trade it for something else.. You do the same thing when you get a birthday gift? :facepalm:

 

I use almost all of them. Only the Duty Comes First I never use.

I never use directives. We should be able to sell them for bonds.
