while the wg refers to technical problems and dates to be determined, the bond shop project seems to vanish

have they lied to us?


The special events, the cws and the random battles are filling our accounts with tons of bonds that we are not able to spend [the equipment for bonds are a scam and they cost too much] and the wg continues not to tell us anything concrete on what it seems a promised to the players.

 

Have introduced a new currency and we do not have how to spend it to buy unique vehicles it does not make much sense at present.

 

 

it would be polite to give answers to the community of players, giving dates and details, always if the development of this game function exists or not.

 

Personally it seemed to me a huge lie.

the thing that really makes me angry is that we have been collecting bonds for the past 2 years and we can't even see the shadow of this bond shop, they talk about it for about a year at least, they also mentioned it to the previous wg fest and yet you don't have any news.

They'll probably do a special "bonds" event for Christmas rather than the usual "loot" box event.

The bond shop would not earn WG any money, as you get bonds by grinding rather than paying. Hence my guess is that the bond shop has extremely low priority.

Bonds were put into the game to try and encourage more Tier 9 and 10 gameplay

 

Maybe it hasn't worked and they are trying to come up with an alternative

 

If they open a bond shop with even MORE super duper equipment then the gulf between rich and poor will become even bigger and WoT, unlike the real world, is a place people can choose to leave when things get silly

Weren't bonds used to big on tanks after a clan wars event? From position X to Y, you were allowed to bid to get a tank?

 

I haven't spent bonds yet, but I think I only have 11k or so. Given the prices of special equipment, I'd hate to think what a tank would cost. I don't think they ever promised selling tanks for bonds, except for that clan war thingy.

IIRC they promised the bond shop in 2019. We have the last quarter left + Christmas so I wouldn't call it lying, yet..

But bonds are currency in WoT, so WG has to find methods to make people spend bonds. Otherwise people won't grind bonds.

 

Improved equipment is very poor value for bonds, so the bond shop makes sense.

Why complain?
Bonds are so fun to have.

And btw there is a new premium Object on its way!
Finally a new Soviet Premium tank and it is an Object, who had guessed that.

Doubt there are enough unspent / uncommitted bonds in players accounts to make it worth while.

they have no problem with selling stuff for real money

they have no problem with selling stuff for gold

they have no problem with selling stuff for festival tickets

...

they have huge technical problems with selling stuff for bonds, problems they couldn't fix in half year, even that bond shop on test server worked fine

 

Yeah, not lying :harp:

When they gave us all a pile of free bonds I bought some improved vents for my 8 skill KV 220 crew.

Other than that I have paid no attention to them.

If you have no expectations you will never be disappointed.

They've been shoving bonds into the game at an alarming rate. With the exception of bidding on cw tanks there's really nothing worthwhile to spend them on. I'm close to 40k bonds myself and I'm sure I'm far from alone. The longer they wait to introduce the bond shop the higher they are going to have to price tier ten bond tanks to make a dent in that, and the higher they price them the more discouraged new players will become. "30 000 bonds for a tank It'll take me three years to get that much!" And the higher they price them the more people will hesitate to take the plunge. Why should I dump all of my bonds on a M60 or whatever if they might release the 907 next quarter?
