Hello people.

 

New CW Campaign "Fire Trail" is about to start in a few days.

 

The question is how many bonds will you bid in the auction for the 1.000 available tanks.

 

Personally as a happy owner of a 907 & Chieftain im still undecided whether i am going to make a bid or not since i dont think the 121B or the M60 are worth 20k or 30k bonds.

 

Last Campaign in January the minimum bid to win one of the 600 tanks was around 22.750 bonds. The campaign before that when the auction was first introduced it was around 12.750 bonds which seems like the deal of the century if you ask me.

 

If i had to guess where the minimum bid will land this time id say about 23k to 25k bonds.

Its only 6 months since the last campaign and we have almost double the tanks available.

I certainly dont expect to see a big raise if any but i could be wrong.

 

Here are a few useful topics you could read as well while you are it.

 

CW tanks count of owners.

Its a bit cheaper on bonds if you'd play to get one

We re talking about the auction here though.

 

Personally im not sure if i can play the whole 10 days due to my work schedule.

Personally, I think it will be higher than that.

 

In the last two auctions I bid ALL my bonds an I was 5k too few and 6k too few in each one.

 

Now I have 20k bonds and I expect to be 7-8k short.

 

18k bonds could get me 4 bits of purple equipment, but I think a reward tank would be a better outcome.

I have all the tanks that we can win in this new campaign ... except the 121B that I would like to take
if I could not stay in the top 8k players I will not use bonds to buy it at auction .. it's not worth it IMO 

 

certainly it is better than the normal 121, but not having useful features to CW and clan activities I will not spend bonds to buy it if I will out of the 8k

 

I forgot ... for tanks, especially the chieftain, people will spend +35k bonds to get it

ValkyrionX put the hammer on the nail. From previous auctions for CW tanks, it seems 20K bonds is a minimum to bid for the various CW tanks and you clearly need more for the ones that are considered good for CW/randoms.

That said, time has passed, people have saved up bonds once more for the new campaign, so wouldn't be surprised if the minimum bond bid to win would be 25K bonds...

 

Not sure if 25K+ bonds for a tank is worth it. Then again, what would you spend it on if not for equipment & directives? As likely, if the bond shop ever opens for tanks, it will be pricey as well.

for unfortunate events in the last campaign I found myself out of the clan and I was forced to use many bonds to buy the chieftain ... if I remember correctly I think I won it with about 29.999 bonds

 I only had 4 days to play in the SoF campaign and still got the tank so its not really that hard if you're in a decent clan.

Welp; that's alot. So I am likely very optimistic about the bonds needed to bid. Still grats on getting one, the Chieftain hybrid tank was very good in ranked I noticed.

Well, you could 50k bonds and say that's not worth it. It all depends on the minimum bid that's required. 

 

For sure it's hard to predict the minimum winning bid. The first auction (a bit over 1 year ago) didn't have the 907 and Chieftain (also not the VK iirc), the most recent auction did have the 907, the new Chieftain and the VK72. Last one was rumored to be there for the last time even, although I would love to see a good source on that. 

 

If I have to make an estimate, the minimum amount of bonds required won't change that much. Of course people gathered some bonds in the past couple of months (including bonds for Ranked?), everyone gets some bonds for the campaign and 'only' 1000 tanks are up for auction.  Those things increase the threshold. But at the same time many people from top clans (that have lots of bonds) already have the tank. The more casual players don't want a reward tank so bad I think, and also don't have the crazy amount of bonds, the casual players that do have crazy amounts of bonds already 'won' their tank last time I assume.

It does for a 907 or Chieftain but certainly not for the rest of them.

 

Anyone who has them better keep their bonds for the next Campaign. Maybe WG adds a new one on par with the mentioned above.

I wouldn't put this past WG. Try and wipe out the bond bank balances this summer, and then release a new CW reward tank later when nobody has any bonds.

 

They tried their Black Market to reduce gold and credit balances, so why not bonds as well?

Well can you blame them for not having a new tank for every campaign ?

 

We don't need more clone tanks.

 

Its easier to have a new tank every other campaign and this also gives the ability for everyone to catch up.

 

Whats shady as [edited]is they keep increasing the available tanks for the auction.

 

First 100.

Then 400 and eventually adjusted to 600.

And now 1000.

 

Whats next ? 5000 ?
