No one has been able to answer my question, I have sent 2 tickets in and they are still sitting in the queue after 3 days. If your in the running for a tank, and the gambit ends and you are able to pick a tank but don't have enough bonds can you not get a tank?! All I'm asking is if I can get a tank but don't have enough bonds can I still get a tank. Every war gaming post about just talks about bonds!!! If this is so that's outrageous! That means that if I am in the top 11,000 players and can pick a tank but don't have enough bonds I cant get a tank?!?! So now that I didn't play Ranked Battles I'm being punished by not getting a tank?! Just very confused someone help me

Maybe OP is talking about CW tanks for bonds? I think I read something along the lines of that somewhere...

ah okay I see where that says that. I also found why you haven't been able to do that:

 

10.1.5. The option of exchanging bonds for a vehicle will be available for the winners of Operation Gambit from 12/21/2017 through 1/15/2018.

 

it is not the 21st of December yet.

The rules are pretty clear that you need two things to get a CW reward tank in operation gambit: 1.  Top 3000 in terms of fame points, which isn't hard since only about 1600* have even qualified. 2. 4,000 bonds. The base number of bonds you get is based on your finish in fame points with the multiplier by your clan's final spot. Bonds you already have can be used. 

 

 

 

*which means at this time, there are about 1400 unclaimed tank licenses.

The real competition seems to be about getting bonds.  At this rate, almost everybody who has participated up to this point has the ability to get the tank.  So the real problem is getting enough personal and clan fame points so you have enough bonds.  If 10k players would play in the campaign, this would not nearly be the problem it is now.  Fame points rank you among other top players, but the rewards are ratio based.  The more people play the campaign, the more people that get the rewards.  Ultimately, I think this was WGs plan all along.

If you didn't play in rank battles you are probably screwed.  In the past the top ~3000 players qualified for a reward tank.  Now you only qualify for the opportunity to buy a tank; which you can only buy with 4000 bonds.  If WG was going to make this change; they should have announced that when ranked battles started.  It would have been to their benefit as more would have participated.  As it stands, it is unlikely that if you did not score in ranked battles; that you will be able to collect a tank. Their doesn't seems to be enough bonds awarded in Operation Gambit to qualify for the tank.  It sucks when you consider the amount of time you must play to collect enough fame points to get the invitation to purchase a tank.  This is a major and unfortunate change that was only announced days before it started.

The point the OP is making is "What happens to players that qualify to select a CWs reward tank, but lack 4k bonds to purchase it?"

Short answer is I think you can't get a reward tank.  It's a crap system and hopefully WG sees how stupid it is to do this before they've released all the was we're supposed to be able to earn bonds.  Not to mention how stingy they are about them outside of ranked.

Yes, you need bond for the tank!

For 4000 bonds means you need be top 10% clan also with top 10% player participate in this EVENT!

If you did not get enough bond you will lose chance to get these rewards vehicle

Just wondering how many games you need to play in this event and you need a really good clan top 10% in this event.

they didnt have a big turn out of players or clans so tons will miss out unless you have a stock pile of bonds from running tier 10s in pub games.

 

They've got two problems on their hands. Only 5800 people are participating second, only the top 600 people can afford the tank as is assuming no bonds are in garages

They also have the issue of top 1% of clans means literally 1 on NA whereas EU had 5 and I'm sure RU had many more

 

not a good turn out for WG.

Top 3000 will get the option to trade in 4000 bonds for a reward tank.  The end stat I want to see is of the 3000, how many after the grace period is over did not get the tank due to lack of bonds...hmmm.

LOL

 

Imagine you are _Tinman_ranked 2981 with no clan multiplier.  I have no idea who this is or what his situation is, but lets say he has 0 bonds.  That's 3500 he has to grind out.  At 100 a day that's literally 35 out of the next 41 days of grinding hours a day.  GLHF
