Holy moly... did you guys saw this yet? https://www.facebook.com/WorldOfTanks/videos/498563217487937/

That`s a very nice event at first glance! Are those „bounty“ equipments the same as the improved ones that you can now get only for bonds? I hope so...

yes, not sure I can keep up with all these events.  however the downside is not all items are available for FTP players, you do have to buy additional content.   ok, yes its a free game shouldn't complain about free stuff.  but there will be advantages in game given to players that pay.

Not at first when you get them, but you can improve them to the same level as improved equipment.

 

For the lazy ones :

I thought this had been delayed, wasn't it supposed to be part of the 1.8 update? 

It`s saying will start March 12 so I guess they changed their mind!

I still have loads of gold also. Even after buying the golden 59. Curious how much the extra options will cost.

If they ultimately turn into purple equipments I don`t have to worry about overbidding for the T95/FV... :B

Why does the Super Conq earn more points per game than the 277? Also do we want tier 10 full of Super Conqs and 277s? 

 

And a GLD, really, why offer one of the least used pieces of equipment?

Question that comes to my mind, for this new type of equipment, what will be the cost of demounting it?

If I recal corrctly from an earlier video the missions in the SQ require you to be top 3 and the 277 missions are easier to achieve but give less points.

It doesn't. Sconq earns +3 points only if you get in the top 3 of your team while the 277 gives +1 to any position you get.

 

GLD is useful on arty I guess

Pay to progress maybe, but where can you buy anything there that is going to make you win?

Battle Pass is a good idea, in games that are F2P like PUBG or Fortnite, here its just milking the cow. I am allready paying for a premium account, so why should I pay for a battle pass. I am already paying to get all the perks....

 

And not to mention the clan war bias, ref the SuperC.

So we get all this stuff just for playing normal random battles? That was my read into it. Cool... and it's basically going to average about 5 points every battle by my calculations since when I win, 95% of the time I'm top 10 more and when I lose I'm 99% of the time top 3. EZ PZ

 

My read into the bounty equipment is that you basically can only get the really good stuff like a rammer for purchasing an improved pass? and that F2P are limited to garbage sort of equipment like a GLD? Ya ok a GLD will be useful on an SPG or some stupid situation tank but generally useless compared to a rammer, vent or optics.

 

Well, I think it's a really nice addition anyway and lots of free things for basically playing as normal and doing what I like in this game so that's a big +1 from me. Also what I like about this offering is that T6+ is included and not just limited to T8 or T10. Plus there's no losing points so it's less severe than ranked battles which is a good thing but realistically like I said, most players worth their salt should be bagging 5 points per battle, win or lose.

Well it's pay for a shortcut and the better equipment by the look of it. But equally it's lots of free stuff if you simply ignore it and play away normal so I'm cool with it.

How is it pay to win when the only thing you get extra is an piece of equipment everyone can get through bonds.
