Hello guys and girls ,

I have 4300 bonds , I'm thinking of buying a premium tank to had to my collection and to help me make credits , since I have many tanks unlocked and buy .

I'm not sure what are bonds are usefull for other than buying tanks and consumables? 

 

I only use my premium tanks to friend credits .

With the bonds I have I can buy Pz IV Hydrostat , T34 S or M10 RFBM .

Are any of these worth it ? 

 

Thanks

depends on what you like to play - overall I'd say the tier 10s are more enticing to collect bonds than the other tanks - but that is mainly a rarity issues...

 

If you need a tank to grind credits, go for a tier 8 premium ;)

I'd suggest you keep saving for t8 prem, if you really want a prem tank. Any lower tiered prem aint worth it, apart few t7s and 6s.

wait till you get 8k bonds; do frontline, do whatever events give you bonds.

 

but get a t8. Otherwise... won't really make any credits.

 

p.s. - and probably you want patriot from what's listed in t8. Not that any of them are glorious.

You can get tonks with cash/credits

 

Premum bond equipment can only be purchased with bonds

Pz IV Hydro is bad, T 34 S and M10 RBFM are fine tanks. They won't help you get any credits though, for crew training purposes they're fine.

 

If you want to gain credits, you want at least tier 7 prem tank, preferably tier 8. I'd keep on saving the bonds to be honest. Tier 5 premiums are dirt cheap in both gold and cash, you shouldn't waste bonds on buying them.

High Alpha tonks with good pen values tend to be better credit earners

 

The Skorpion being an example

hardly see a reason why people would spend bonds on tanks. it's a tank. for those of those I could afford 2 - 3 improved equipment.

tanks are worthy of bonds, if they are good,which the 121B and M60 aren't (121B more so).

 

@OP

No,buy premiums with either gold or your CC.

wasting bonds on common premiums is the worst choice you could do with them.

Wait for more bonds for better tanks or equipment .

Thanks.

Except the T-34 Shielded isn't very good as a trainer because the Commander is also the Gunner, a situation that doesn't occur in every RU medium above tier 5.

 

To OP: I've got a fair number of mid-tier premiums that I bought for training crews but in retrospect, I really wish I hadn't bothered. They're not much use as credit earners so unless you want to start seal-clubbing, I'd say save your bonds until you have enough for a tier 8 premium.

 

 

 

Edit: and while I was typing you agreed to what I was suggesting. That's a measure of how good my advice is, not how slowly I type. :unsure:

because if he's a f2p player, buying a t8 prem for credits is probably the best thing he can do with bonds. By a mile.

 

ok, none of those t8 in bond shop are stellar. But still better than grinding credits in some t5 received from some event or just a plain t5-t6.

Hydro is not worth it. M10 is fine, and the T-34S is kinda worth it. But they will rotate it they say. So save up unless you really, really need a crew trainer or an income machine.

That's really the worst thing to waste bonds on when on a "budget".

Save for one of the tier 8 tanks if you don't want to spend money on the game and need a credit maker. 

 

That 0.00something increase bond equipment gives, is for try hards only, unless maybe if you have norhing else to spend bonds on.

This kind of argument doesn't make sense for a nation, which has countless premiums to train crews with.

It is why I have a 6 skill crew for Obj. 268 Version 4, a 5 skill crew for K-91 @ 91%, and a 4-5 skill crew for KV-2, trained via Churchill III & IS-6.

The amount of premiums makes the crew layout differences practically negligible.

Frankly, T8 premiums are worth it only if you possess Premium. If OP is going to play T8 prems which are expensive to upkeep, his income will be only slight.
