What about players who don't play Tier 10?

Wow! So if I play ~30 matches in a tier X vehicle I can earn enough for 10 directives!? Truly this is a well designed reward system.

This. So much this. Why not leave the bonds for Heroic achievements for T9 and below??

Better late than never but they now add a forum post for this article , makes this first line redundant, perhaps it was a response to the complaint.....

 

Welcome to the forum where we encourage players to give us feedback....

Until we get to an idea , like making EPIC medals absolutely worthless.

Why?

Because it messes with the WG corporate idea that every player must play Tier X and lose credits , therefore forcing the player to buy premium time or tanks except those tanks will not get bonds anymore.

Everything about WG has become so transparent , so driven towards making CA$H only and forgetting about gameplay.

 

Just How do you think you get a TierX tank?

Bu playing through all the Tiers....

But how can you play through the Tiers if everyone else is playing Tier X ?

 

The credit system was designed to have many players playing many Tiers. For each game you lost credits in tier X , you could play games in lower tiers to make up for it. That provided opponents at all tiers.

 

Corporate WG has forgotten this.

They have systematically destroyed the "game" that we once had - very successful it was too, in order to farm more CA$H from the player base.

 

Great but you drive us off the game by doing it.

 

Now finishing 10th in a crap 15:0 win at TierX will get you bonds but defeating 6 tanks single handed 2 Tiers above you whilst defending the base getting a  hi-cal top gun etc etc is worth nothing ?

 

Just shows those corporates do not actually PLAY the game.

Good play means nothing , achieving against the odds - which is where we derive some thrills - means nothing to them ....

The player base are just cows for milking...

Why would you ever make the title "Earn More Bonds!" when you have practically removed the odd bond income from the majority of your game population?

 More doublespeak from WG.

 

Headline: It is easier than ever to earn bonds

Unwritten reality: You just have to lose credits and ruin your gaming experience by bring an exp piñata for the unending hoards of gold-ammo spamming wallet-warriors.

 

I have every Tier X tech tree tank (and a few Tier X premiums) but rarely play them as Tier X is just not a fun tier to play, purely because of the gold ammo.

 

Tiers 7 through to 9 are much more fun.

 

Luckily I have 10.5k of bonds stockpiled and all but 3 of the unique bond Tanks, bought with bonds gathered via the old, apparently non-easy, way to earn bonds. :teethhappy:

So before you could get bonds for great games on your tier 8s and now is that no longer possible. How is this exactly a buff? "Earn more bonds" ?? Are you for real?

This indeed, T10 is mostly boring with too much BS over-armoring going on boggingdown the gameplay.

 

What about bonds for playing other tiers then just 10. Since there are more players playing below tier 10 then there are playing tier 10.

This is a stupid idea WG

 

Keep bonds for heroic achievements at lower tiers.

One way to make this update meaningful would be to add some actually good or interesting tanks to the bond shop.

 

Give us the Chieftain/T95 and the Emil 1951. You don't sell them, so you might as well earn yourself some points by putting them there.

That is really sad...

I mean, it's obvious where they are going with it, but it's just wrong and I can only second every comment.

Why do we need any epic medals after all? Just for a collection and my own ego or what?

So there will be nothing given for a cool achievement like ibrox3 described here:

So it's not worth it?! Why remove it?!

So according to the new logic giving 1-2 shots with a TierX which probably lets you be in top10 is more worth than earning an epic medal?! Just nonsense. Whoever designed this new bonds-earn-system just has no clue about the gameplay, or probably just doesn't care I guess.

Nothing has changed for players who doesn't play tier 10 because you made it so expensive, that even players who use premium account has to grind credits in their lower tier premiums.

Are you even trying to make this game better or you just don't care as long as you are getting money from richer players?

A great change would be if you extend it to e.g. all tier 4+ vehicles.

No problem, I'll rather be without bonds than suffer Tier X games infested with 8 EBR's per game.

So basically....

 

If I massacre entire enemy team in a Panther 2 in a tier 10 game... I earn absolutely zero bonds?

 

Well, isn't this the most jolly system ever.

Obviously WG want to encourage people to play tier 10, presumably to take the pressure off the other tiers.

 

Block Quote

 

epic medals and Battle Heroes achievements will no longer earn you bonds.

 

This is unnecessary.  Those medals earned so few bonds as to make no difference.

A pools medal earned what ?? 3-5 bonds ?  I've managed 1 in 40k battles.

A Pools should earn 100xTier (so 600 for the Pools I earned in Tier 6).  Even being this generous would still have very little effect as those medals are so ridiculously rare !!

 

This change will primarily widen the gap between the Tier 10 Unicorns and the rest of us.

Tier X sucks bigtime in todays WOT

And instead of fixing problems WG decides to devalute even further playing other tiers

The ranked battles showed how much EBR-s screw gameplay...

They are the cancer of tier X

Which team has better race driver wins 90%

Very fun experience

 WG you are ruining the game

Bonds are supposed to be end-game content. You are expected to turn your interest to them once you have several tier X tanks unlocked already and you're playing at that level. So we are basically adjusting this currency to better fit the role we have envisioned it should have in the game.
