Hmmm, I like it that you can choose which Bounty equipment you want.

For the 1st season we had 90 days, for 2nd we had 2 days less - 88 days total, and now for the 3rd season we'll have only 81 days to complete it.

Looks like WG really wants us to spend gold for those stages... (after we have already spent 5K gold for improved rewards). Greedy indeed!

But anyhow, good news fellas;)
Still no equipment discounts, but at least we can get additional equipment and demount kits:)
Don’t know what to choose now Bounty rammer or new IRM?...:unsure:
Btw, weird thing Bounty configuration has some better characteristics than Bond one...-70% of loading gun/engine damaged penalty and -70% to chance of engine fire  VS -65 % for Bond config...
It’s a little difference, but...

It was always there, since the start. And in fact we improved the mechanics of earning it.

You still get an additional bonus and now you pick the one you like that's something the community asked for when we introduced the battle pass

Bounty Rotation Mechanism looks nice but my KV3 would be disappointed if I don't get that Protection Technology! :sceptic:

 

Here are the stats for both bounty equipment! 

Bounty Protection Technology

Before the upgrade:

  • +25% to repair speed;
  • +100% to ammo rack, fuel tank, engine durability
  • −50% to reload speed and engine power penalty upon damage to the module
  • −50% to engine fire probability
  • Once per battle, prevents ammo rack explosion, fuel tank fire, engine shutdown if these modules lose all hit points

 

After the upgrade:

  • +40% to repair speed;
  • +150% to ammo rack, fuel tank, engine durability
  • −70% to reload speed and engine power penalty upon damage to the module
  • −70% to engine fire probability.
  • Once per battle, prevents ammo rack explosion, fuel tank fire, engine shutdown if these modules lose all hit points

 

Bounty Rotation Mechanism

Before the upgrade:

  • −10% to  dispersion due to vehicle movement and turning, due to turret traverse
  • +10% to hull and turret traverse speed

After the upgrade

  • −15% to  dispersion due to vehicle movement and turning, due to turret traverse 
  • +15% to hull and turret traverse speed

 

P.S. the boat on the IS-4 will not save your crew from drowning!

Think I might need a little more gold to get the improved rewards.

The free tank rental is good too that helps out a lot of players with limited tank numbers.

 

Like the idea of deciding what equipment I want though that brings in more problems now doesn't it.

There are 3 grades of equipment are all the rewards class 1 equipment or will some be for lower tier vehicles.

Ill take whatever I can get preferably all the top class.

 

Now we have to pay to remove camo nets and Binoculars when will we see bounty and Improved versions of those.;)

This move is clear like a blue sky - 

a lot of players prefer to spend money for Christmas boxes to get profitable amount of gold (PA days etc.), so WG can’t extend it until 17-th December, cuz they need you spend for BP first and then for boxes:)

Seems to be the new Standard Operating Procedure for WoT:  

1) Present the players something that seems nice. They’re happy.

2) Make it harder. Squeeze them. They’ll complain.

3) Squeeze them even harder. They’ll complain more.

4) Maximum squeeze. Eventually they’ll stop complaining and accept the new, harsher reality.

5) Smile as players lose millions of credits while desperately trying to meet increasingly hard requirements.

6) Feign surprise when they don’t love you anymore.

Love how Battle pass gives me something to spend my loot gift box gold on!

The only 'issue' I have with it is if the elite stages get progressively harder then surely their bond rewards should get better. Otherwise, we're getting in diminishing returns territory.

Pros:

-) Nice customisation elements

-) Good rewards overall, as with the last 2 Battle Passes

 

Cons:

-) Unnecessarily long downtime between seasons

-) Shorter time to complete

-) Standard equip is only for tier 8-10 tanks, also none of the older equips can be selected

-) Heaps of useless demount kits (Why would I demount stuff if I have nothing to replace it with? Plus I already have 140 lying around...)

 

 

BP used to be something I looked forward to, now I'm considerably less hyped. I'm wondering how many seasons it'll take until BP is completely ruined for me...

 

 

Edit:

Bonus Cons:

-) Out of 55 tier 6 tanks in my garage, 50 are currently out of service due to not having equipment

-) Out of 31 tier 7 tanks in my garage, 23 are currently out of service due to not having equipment

-) Out of my tier 8-10 tanks, 20 collect dust, some never played, guess why?

 

This used to be a nice event, because I'd play a variety of tanks, including some I don't play as often, but with equip 2.0 that's out of the window. I still have enough playable tanks to complete both main and elite progression (and then some), but looking at 93 tanks wich only exist to use up garage slots at this point doesn't really motivate me to boot up WoT.

Thank you WG for FINALLY making it so the ones that don't buy the improved battle pass can actually chose the bounty equipm they want/need, that should have been a thing from the first season but hey, better late then never as they say :D

I like IS-4 more than E5 but oh dear the skin for IS-4 is not appealing to my eye. But if EBRs have taught me anything that rubber boat in the back is the best armour on the tank :hiding:

Wont be buying the improved reward this time. Lacklustre rewards at best. When you break it down you get poor value for your gold if you a veteran player.

 

Blueprints - Got 1k universal and hundreds of USA/Russian ones.

Training guides ok but with Crew 2.0 coming up probably not worth it.

Personal training manual nice but again ^^

Credits, demounting kits, premium days all meh.

One piece of standard equipment. Wow that's gonna make all the difference to re-equiping a large garage. 

One piece of bounty equipment but I need to spend a further 3 million credits to upgrade it. Why just why?

Only really like the T110E5 style so no need to buy 2nd style for me, the IS-4 with a red dingy on the back just looks wrong.

 

I like the idea of Battle Pass but WG you need to do better with your improved rewards if you want me to part with my gold.
