As the title states, should we be able to sell some of the "useless" directives for bonds?

It'd flood the game with bonds as I don't imagine anyone uses directives very much. The 6th sense directive is ok for new commanders and I use the camo directive on my AMX 13 90 in a vain attempt to ever complete the last 260 light mission. But other than that they just pile up.

I don't think WG will ever make them convertible regardless of how rarely anyone uses them but if they did it'd far more likely be an exchange for consumables or credits as opposed to bonds imo.

I didn't think about the bonds flooding the market. Good point.

Why would anyone not want this.

I'd even settle to be able to sell them for 10k credits each.

maybe selling them for bonds would not be a good idea, credits I think would work fine!

As 'Tanks for bonds' shop emerged and I got plenty of these bond-sh.t on my account, I'd gladly welcome an exchange: directives to new prem tanks.

 

YES, PLEASE.

Thats what sparked the question, if we can buy stuff for bonds then we should be able to sell for bonds, and before anyone makes the gold comparison, bonds are in game only same as silver, and cant be bought for real money.

I've wanted this since day one.

 

A lot of directives have no use, atleast to me. As an example, why do i need 140 toolkit directives? I dont even have a toolkit itself! :facepalm: I'm also sitting on 804 "Focus The Target!" directives. and 715 Natural cover ones.. 

 

10k credits each would be nice atleast. as i think bonds would be a little much. Unless maybe its literally 1 or 2 Bonds per directive

Either way would be nice, and yes even if its 1 bond per directive, its still something for the useless things

I think 1-2 bonds per directive would be fair.

 

They could even have a once or twice a year event where the exchange rate would be more favorable, like they do for other things

Yes, absolutely.

Bonds would be the best currency, but credits/gold are also acceptable, just let us sell the damn things. :izmena:

They are taking up storage space on WG servers, that is all.  maybe let us sell them and WG will have more server space for something good, like Team battles or something  if we all have 100's of directives that are of no use building up.... that will end up being a chunk of server space (even if there is little difference between 1 and 1000 directives.)

For bonds absolutely not! As it would break the bond economy just as it’s been established, because you lot ( so would I:coin:) would go out of your way to farm it and exploit it.

 But maybe for some credits (not too much) so there is some choice to keep them and use them or simply tidy up the garage by getting rid off them. 

 Might further encourage players to actually use them if they can sell for a few credits making it very clear there’s no point in hording directives in the hope that WG will allow exchanging them for bonds as I’ve got over a thousand of them, 

 yes I would dump them all in exchange for bonds in a heart beat and get something more useful in the bond shop.

I'd sell them for credits tbf.
Tho I would be willing to sell personal reserves for creds or bonds as well. (never really use them)

No. Never. Use the directives.

 

There should be more ways to earn bonds without a massive powergrind credit/time sinkhole like RB and FL, respectively. Selling directives should not be one of them.

Bonds should be something you earn.

 

 

Garage slots, yes.

Which is precisely why it will never happen.

Everyone gains from this except WG, and that's just not how they roll.
