Considering you need like 5k bonds for single piece of equipment and 8-15k for a tank, getting 3-5 bonds for medal is damn unrewarding. you can play 2 years and still be unable to get 8 tier premium for bonds, let alone waste it on 1 piece of gear. 

Earning medals as reward is just disheartening when you notice cost of anything you can buy with bonds.

You get so few because that is not the way you farm them.

The fastest way is from ranked battles, then special events like frontline, team clash etc.

You also get more of them by getting medals in tier 10 and simply playing tier 10.

Most importantly, you need to play well in order to get bonds. They are not like xp which any muppet can grind.

He is clearly not a bot.

A bot would play better than that.

He is literally playing for the red team.

Frankly, Bonds are still new to the game as so little use for them was offered throughout the longest period ever since they've been released. Myself and hopefully others don't waste them on Directives, which are easily obtainable through merit rewards and random weekly missions or Premium Consumables. So, I guess the less an average player earns for a future plan, the better for WG.

You can still get premium account and earn more through premium missions, which in my opinion, is stupid, but then again, premium account isn't obtainable just by paying money.

Or we can wait for the new 1.8 update which offers daily missions for all players to earn some extra bonds as well.

Or, you know, you can geht gewd :peepotard:.

As if you don't need to play well to get medals..

And this is my friend's account I use to post, smart*sses, since mine is banned on forum.

And I wonder what is your idea of playing for the red team I wonder, can't grasp how you exactly imagine it.

It always amuses me what people state of mind is when they start to get into account details as if it is any argument in the conversation..

Tier X battles give you the most bonds depending on the amount of XP you receive, so you kind of wanna play well in-general.

Ban circumvention, you say?

 

Anyway, bonds are linked to performance. Any issue with that is possibily an issue of performance. And the account that posts has issues with performance.

 

Playing for the red teams means that when that player is in a team, he's actively (even if unwittingly) helping the other team. This traditionally results in more wins for the enemy teams that for the teams he is in.

Bonds are farmed in full tier 10 games. The ones you get for medals are more like a tip for good service.

They mean your WR is so bad you could literally do better if you just went AFK every match thereby implying the only way to do as badly as you do would be to be actively trying to hurt your teams chances to win.

OP; if you get -2.5% bad it is still terrible, so don't bother about those equipment and focus on the basic mechanics first.

LoL, I post about medals and you end up with issues of performance. Is that why you won't tell different so you don't appear as if you have such issues yourself ? Or you deny any criticism you could have for the game cuz you would admit that you have some sort of problem the way your logic works here ? Kinda fruitless and hopeless.. lose all voice just to never look as complaining. So I take you are content with current way medals work ?

Your inability to farm bonds is not down to a problem with the game, it's entirely down to your inability to perform well enough to deserve any. WG don't need to lower the bar to compensate for you not being able to reach it. You need to try harder.

Did I post anything about my inability to get bonds, or did I post about reward for medals ?

You said it would take 2 years to farm enough bonds for a tier 8 prem which would suggest an inability to get enough bonds. It's fine as is i have 25k and rarely play tier 10s, haven't played ranked or clan wars so don't see a problem.

Yeah, but I was speaking about what you get with medals, right ? Not the ability to farm bonds, yes ? And if you can't buy 8tier premium tank for what you got from medals after 2 years then the reward is insignificant like the topic says. And that's what I want talk about here, medals.

It's almost as if medals were not meant to be the primary source of bonds.
