After seeing that the Bondshop has some new/old shiny tanks available for bonds, i got interested. 

 

I have ~3k+ Bonds, which means i can either get the TV Hydro for 3k, or the other two TV tanks for 1.5k each. 

Since i want all three, i need more Bonds.

 

TBH, i have actually no effin idea how i got 3k in the first place. 

WG was handing out 100 when they introduced that Bonds.

I remember vaguely, getting between 15 and 20 in two, maybe even three games (possibly one or two more). 

But mostly it's 1-3 Bonds in one out of ten games, so no clue why i have 3k in the first place, but i have them and they're mine.

 

Anyways, bottom line is, i need more Bonds. 

Ranked would be one source to get them, but have only 80k on my T54ltwt, so i doubt i'll be playing ranked this year. 

Clan battles...i created a clan, but i'm the sole member, so not an option. 

 

I know that medals give Bonds (depending on Tier IIRC(?)), but that's something that depends on my performance.

Personally, i don't wanna Play heavy tanks and farm steel walls or similar, cause that would be bad play and boring as frak.

 

I rarely check the missions, so not sure how often/ how many bonds can be aquired via those. 

What are my options? Any other way to get Bonds (no need to put them in the store as i won't pay a single dime for bonds!)?

If you are running a premium account, you can earn 25 bonds each day.

 

And you can earn bonds next month in FL.

 

That's how I earned most of my bonds.

WG will possibly give away some bonds this year too as a reward for veteran players.

Cheers m8!

 

Sorry for being a noob, but how are bonds related to premium account? I thought it really depends on the performance and medal farming? 

Also, how many bonds can on get in FL? I was playing FL, but honestly didn't pay any attention to result screen...except for credits.

If you have a premium account you get daily 3 missions.

 

The first one gives you 50k credits,

The second one gives you x3 xp.

The third one gives you 25 bonds.

 

And ofcourse you can earn bonds in battle, but you have to earn medals, or do well in (full) tier X battles.

Full tier 10 games give bonds per battle. 

 

Ranked, Frontlines and the recent Steel Hunter mode give out bonds. 

 

As said 25 a day from WOTs premium account and the anniversary award last year gave out bonds and is likely to happen again. 

 

A lot more bonds around these days than there used to be.

You have (currently) 3 ways of consistently earn bonds:

- medals in battle (battle heroes & epic medals)

- full tier 10 battles, depending of base XP

- daily missions (check the bottom tab of the missions)

I got most of my bonds from playing CW a few years ago. Got a 907 back then too. With the rest I bought improved equipment for LeFH 105 and now the Hydro and T-34S shielded, which were missing from my collection of hopeless tier 5 tanks. :D

Yea. They did announce this when they listed their plans for 2019, that they are going to up the bonds intake sources.

12000 per year is what I roughly expect to make, 25 a day over the year, plus the odd 1 or 2 points for good games, the odd 10 bonds here & there when I occasionally play T10.

 

On top of that, there have been events all this year (Frontline & Racing events spring to mind) where there were a couple of 1000 bonds available, suspect it will be the same next year.

I've expected tanks like FV 183 and Foch155 in that shop. But I see there are mostly premium ones. For now, I see no reason to spend any bond in that shop. But it's a nice start.

Hydro is no worth 3K tbh.  As Circon said, they should pay you 3K to play it. I got mine via the model kits, and it's by far the worst tier 5 prem I own.

Did pick up the M60, had a couple of real nice games in it, don't have the TechTree equivalent to compare it too bu the gun handling seems especially good.

Most of my bonds are gone now so hope nothing better comes along soon

dont forget ranked, after a week most unicums will be at high ranks making grinding more relaxed/easier at lower ranks to my experience

 

so far i remember s2 ranked gives about 8k bonds for clearing all divisions, considering s2 ranked is far easier than s1 it should be pretty doable for alot of players without massive effort

 

basically if one clears both ranked this year (s1/s2) it should be 16k bonds or so already, then with frontline and other events it can rack up nicely to over 20k/year without even taking randoms/prem acc mission in consideration

Improved equipment for the LeFH?

 

It's been a long time since I have read something so totally evil!
