I recommend more people submit a ticket to wargaming like this. Might actually gain some traction with the devs if enough people do this....

Good for you guys. I personally don't think anything outside of randoms  is worth my time or blood pressure. But, kudos for those that do.

Good luck with that, it is now my belief that support is there only to read off of a script. Nothing actually happens.

You had to be top 3k in personal fame points last season to get a tank too though.

You must've missed the entire paragraph.....I know that you have to be in the top 3k. But of the top 3k you will not be earning enough bonds to buy the tank unless you're in the top 200 players as well in a top 5 clan. Meaning roughly 8% of the players qualifying for the reward tank will be getting enough bonds to actually get the tank unless, as previously stated, you had a stockpile of bonds prior to the campaign.

The problem is that some of this is based on a percentage and some of it is based on a set number. I feel like on the EU and RU servers there's enough players for everyone in the top 10% of clans to earn both the required bonds and be in the top 3,000. 3,000 players is 300 full clans worth of players, and I doubt more than 150 NA clans will participate in the operation. The problem with this setup is they used the same numbers for a server with a much lower population.

This funky math is exactly why I opted out of this Campaign. When I had easily placed in the top 600 players in all the previous Campaigns, I realized this time the payouts would be too small for the efforts required. It's a shame, because it appears that all forms of rewards for this game have dwindled in the past two years.

 

Shame on WarGaming for taking the fun out of their own game!

they just gave away 3 free tier 8 premiums a few weeks ago and you are saying rewards have dwindled???  Thats just insane.  They are always giving away tanks, far more than ever before, tank rewards monthly gives out thousands of free tanks each month.  Its also only 4000 bonds for the campaign tank, thats crazy cheap since a piece of equipment is 5000 points.  If you do even a tiny bit of research you can start earning bonds easily and should have no problem getting the tank, they give bonds out for tons of different things, read for 30 seconds and enjoy the easy bonds.

So you're gonna grind 3,000 bonds in the next 3 weeks to get your reward tank or you're simply brushing by this dilemma because you had the bonds stockpiled? No way anyone could grind 3,000 bonds in 3 weeks.

I don't think its possible either but I'm playing pretty much only t10 to try. Probably going to fail but I will try.

"gave away" if you mean 5 hours a day of ginding to get an electronic tank... then "gave" they did.

I honestly feel that the most we can get from wg in terms of change is maybe having them make bonds purchasable for a certain time. NA server is dying, which kills WGNA income from players. It has been apparent in the past few months that wg will do anything they can to get money from its players, so I can easily see this becoming a thing.

I don't see what the problem is, this seems like it keeps the tanks in the hands of the people who are actually are good enough to be in a top clan and not the randoms who spam 40 battles a day to get into the top 3000, also if you did ranked battle there is no way you don't have enough bonds to buy the tank. I have 4800 left over from last season of ranked that I didn't even place in bronze league... As a matter of fact, my friend is grinding out the excess bonds he needs for the tank as y'all post on the forums. 500 every 3 days, play your T10 and get the tank. If you cant do that then maybe you don't want it bad enough. All I can say is that the 121-B was for sure not worth :D.

That is a very arrogant and unwise position. You are in the clan that has 17 of the top 25 players with most of the rest coming from R-7.  I know I play like a muppet from time to time and got into my clan mostly because of my friends that play got me in.  That’s all fine perhaps those like me, that are willing to devote 5 hours a night playing in the campaign don’t deserve the tank though I am currently high enough to qualify.  The disappointment of the added requirement for bonds has had a negative impact on this campaign.  Also having tournaments including ranked battles that reward the best players with the best equipment further separating them from the rest will eventually kill the game.  While you are in the best clan remember this; the number of clans participating this time is down, the number of players is down.  If this trend continues your clan will be the best of nothing.  Like it or not you need the other clans, and they need a reason to participate.

I think this is the easiest campaign to get a tank in. Between the tank costing only 4000 bonds, the fact that campaign pays bonds, multipliers, and a rumor that you have 30 days to actually exchange bonds for a tank, WG is crazy. 

 

Basically they are allowing players to get a unique tier 10 tank for playing under 100 games (could be 200 depending on you and your clan) ... I can't believe that people still whine. This is a reward tank, being rewarded for the effort, not for most whining

Only top 200 or so players of the 3000 and in a clan with a high enough multiple will have enough bonds to get said tank. Rest of the playerbase doesnt have enough bonds to get it.

I imagine you thought this post was edgy or spicy or whatever you hipsters call provocative posts these days.  Ignorance and lack of empathy aren't edgy. Sorry to be the one to have to tell you.

It's not as bad as all that but it is still pretty bad. 

You would need to be in the top 10% of personal fame points and your clan in the 10% of clan fame points to receive enough bonds to 'buy' your reward without having to get bonds from some other source.  So about 2400 people, assuming we still get some new players on the board, will need to grind bonds. What Comrade_EdgeLord doesn't understand is that some poor schnook who gets 1,800 bonds from this event is going to have to grind a couple of hundred pub matches to make up the difference, which is [edited]on WG's part.
