I would say wait for better offers. And also don't waste them now, patience is always good.

IMO best use of bonds in the game right now is save up about 25k of them, join a clan for the CW campaign, play 5 games and get yourself a Chieftain in the auction.

But shouldn't he be in the top 11k players or something like this?

Not to take part in the auction, IIRC it's literally play 5 battles of that campaign and then bid your bonds.

Due to workhours I dont see myself doing any clanwar ever so I spend them on improved equipment. Got the Progetto 46, STB-1 and K-91 fully pimped and recently bought the M60 from the bondshop.

I buy improved equipment with my bonds and treat some of my very favorite tanks to a full pimp my ride offering of it.

 

There's not much of a gain with improved equipment but with all 3 pieces, they accumulate to give a stronger overall package. 

 

For me the thing about buying tanks with them is,

 

1. I don't see anything I actually want yet lol

2. They very pricey for a tank I haven't even tried and might hate, cannot be re- sold for bonds or even traded against another bond only tank.

3. The game is constantly adjusted, chopped and changed, new tanks added and the tank itself can fall out of meta of become really unplayable at WG's knee-jerk decision making.

4. I tend to get bored with playing the same tank after a while whereas at least with improved equipment I can always transfer it to another tank once I get bored with the current tank or have marked it or whatever. 

 

Edit- I COULD always save them up for something better of course but then again, my attitude to gaming is I might discover something else tomorrow and never play this game again lol, so I'll enjoy and spend and get what I can today, especially since there's no sign of anything much coming down the tracks in regards to bond purchased stuff any time soon.

Usually buy Improved Equipment, shaving 12.5% off reload time on arty is very nice.

Depends entirely on what tank it is. Patriot for 8000 bonds is an incredible deal.

The Liberte is not worth it. Yes it has good frontal armour. It also has a rather big cupola which tier 1s can pen.

Usual recommandation is improved optics on scout and then ventilation for most tanks. Not sure why you would put one equipment on arty.

The longer the reload the more you benefit from improved loading system.

I'd say tanks. I burned a lot of my bonds on improved equipment before they released tanks for bonds - and then I was sitting there in rage like WHATTHEFUUUUU. So now I'm saving up for the M60, but it sure is gonna take a while before I can buy it :arta:

Yeh it is a bit of a shame you can't sell or trade in your improved equipment or bonds or discounts off tanks, considering bonds only really bought improved equipment for a long while, and they then introduced things like the CW auction and the bond shop.

Yeah, definately since the Improved Equipment does such a small difference. I bought the Improved Rammer on the Obj 430 just for the lulz - it shaves of  0,3s compared to the "standard" Rammer - from 8,01s to 7,71s.  For 5.000 bonds. When i could get even better just dumping in food along with the standard rammer (7,67s).

 

Sm Im sitting with one Improved Rammer and one Improved Vent - thats 10k bonds for which i could buy the M60 today (a fkn tier X prem tank!) with my remaining bonds if i hadnt spent them. But no. Because WG says just "F*** You".

Why spend bonds for the AMX while you can get it for free from the referral program?....same as T26E5.

 

Spend them on M60 (the only worthy option in bonds shop). 

Otherwise? Don't waste them.
