Based on our community feedback, we are extending the period for exchanging bonds for vehicles until January 31.

 

This will give players more time to collect sufficient bonds through random Tier X battles or other in-game activities, and earn their desired reward vehicles.

 

Why's that one part bolded?  We're reviewing a couple options.

 

Edit: Expecting some more info to be announced on the portal during the weekend of Jan 19th.

At a guess, more cancer (aka ranked battles)

Or.. you know..  you could just reward the players who earned the tank with a tank...  Like every other campaign up until this point.

there are some players who gave up earlier in the campaign because of the bond requirement.  I missed almost a week of battles due to a business trip so wont matter to me most likely if they extend bonds anyways

That is not quite true.  The IS-5 was free for the first 1000 people, the remaining 1500 had to come up with 10K gold to buy the tank they earned in the campaign.  Do not be surprised if bonds make an appearance in the gift shop for cash.

Im pretty sure that the 10k gold req was changed due to player out cry.  Could be wrong...  But pretty sure I'm not.. Mostly because I have an IS-5 from the last time it was a reward, and I was no where near top 1k, and I sure as hell would never drop 10k (or even 1) gold for a 'reward' I earned.

This bond requirement was really poorly thought out and should simply be removed. People have endured the weeks of the campaign in order to get the tank, and most outside of the top 20 clans will not be able to regardless of time extension. Simply playing T10s doesn't give enough bonds per game, since there is no guarantee that you will get into an all T10 game, and even then, if you had no bonds it would potentially take several hundred games to grind out the necessary bonds. This I find is extremely unfair to those that invested their time into your game, and will drive people away especially if you force them to either play in an unbalanced, and quite frankly not fun, ranked season, or try to squeeze more dollars out of us. While I do have the necessary bonds required, I do sympathize with players from up and coming clans that worked hard to get into the top 3000, and dont have any chance of getting the tank. I think a simple compromise would be you either get bonds ( with an increase in payout) or you get a tank.

agree with most reward   tank outright  " its a reward tank " that people already earned  or cut the bonds in half from 4,000 to 2,000

Of course they won't.

 

The thing that pisses me off is, when the bonds were first implemented in the game, they should have stated that you need to save bonds for the reward tank in the upcoming Campaign.

 

Knowing how screwed up this organization is, I am sure that they didn't even know they would have the bond requirement until just before the campaign started :facepalm:

Nope you actually had to pay 10k gold nothing was changed.

Grinding for top 3000 (for those who are not in a top clan)

 

Then grind for 4k bonds (for those who are not in a top clan AND who doesnt have enough bonds)

 

Doesn't that sound ridiculous?
