​The statement was merely saber rattling over the frustration over their silence; nothing more.  You must be too young to understand that.  Now I am grown up and have had two different careers successfully retiring from both in turn. My two daughters have been put through college and successfully raising their children; so be careful, many of us know the difficulties of running a household and the understand the real world.  I play this for fun, but this is a company that is in it for profit, and that's all good.  However recent events show they are in need of a shakeup.  Investors can't be happy with the dwindling consumer base and the way WG has been handling the recent events (and not just the campaign) only show they are in desperate need of new management.  

 

I don't enjoy the thought people may lose their jobs and don't wish it; it's likely no one will, but that is the way of the 'real business world' when a company begins to struggle.  Indecision, misleading statements are never helpful.  If they lose their jobs it won't be because of this nor the campaign; it will be due to the fact their recent efforts to turn things around have failed.  Consequently top level management must be doing an evaluation as to who will stay and who will go.  That's life in business.

 

I'm almost 41. Married 20 years, 4 kids (1 each college, high , middle, and elementary schools). Care to make any other assumptions?

so in the event of clan wars you dont win a tank, you only loss credits and time for the chance of get a tank... if you get the chance, you have to expend bonds on that tank after you use credits and your time... GG

​You just won't let it go. I'm 66 with 4 grandchildren; so to me you are young.  Having said that neither of our ages mean anything.  Let it stand that we both know the real world, and be more careful about telling someone completely unknown to grow-up.  After all I was already serving in the air force while you were having your diapers changed.

Glad it is behind us; thank you for your service.  My main point, returning to the topic was, it was an announcement that would have been better if they had said nothing about alternatives.  With 3 weeks left most people now know if they will make it or not.   It is sad they could not react faster if other means were to be made available.  Last Christmas, when they realized they needed a 5th Swedish girl crewmember, they were very quick in creating a logical method of acquiring her that was consistent with that years holiday theme.

​That is true, but you still have to consider this opinions, maybe not you as a player, but WG as a company.

Besides, not everyone wants to reroll to impress other people online, land on the top clans and get comfortable with the idea that you weren't something before.

It is very sad to hear friends in the game say "Ive given up on getting my clan wars tank I earned in the campaign because I realize I have no chance of grinding out that many bonds".

How sad.  They still need 1500 bonds and get into tier 10 battles once in every 3 or 4 games.  

 

WHYYYYYYYY Wargaming cant you just lift the time frame????  The xmass rewards you need to pick by the 6th but you can cash in your choices anytime, they do not expire.  So why make the 

clan wars reward tank expire???  Have people pick the tank they want and take out the time restriction to grind the bonds. 
That would be a very fair and reasonable revision that will correct the situation and make many people very happy.

Your Commander says it shouldn't be a problem grinding bonds, just saying:

No but seriously, I think WG is distracted with their move and relocation and some ppl may not want to relocate their families 1000 plus miles to Texas and will be looking else where for employment and this will certainly cause gaps and disruptions in their workflow and decision making.  Hopefully, we will get another extension and or discover shortly what these alternative solution/activities are.  I myself had to grind out an extra 1200 bonds and it certainly wasn't easy.  I did most of my grinding on those 6 days campaign was on break and on the weekends and that hour before battles popped and was able to have an extra 600 bonds before Christmas because I anticipated for the worst case 2x multiplier, just in case.  Grand battles are popping during prime time, just make sure you turn them on and make sure you toon leader has them turned on.  I would turn off encounter and assault, but at least turn off encounter, so you can get sucked more into GBs.  I am helping clan mates grind bonds by tooning....yea it is painful....played for almost an hour last night and didn't make any bonds-too many losses loped sided teams even in grand battles and TT tier X battles.  It was very frustrating.  The Botting is too much

You can make at least 8$ each hour so you can make 100$ each day easily. Why are so many people homeless? I really don't understand.

U r full of yourself !!!!! I am guessing u to b a child because grown ups have other obligations such as family and do not have time to play this game 10 to 15 hrs a day. Also, do have a reward tank from previous campains and did it cost anything? Be advised that bond criteria is just a way to appease the big clans and were put in place also because of the dwindling player base and to keep people like me out of the OP 907 !!

My suggestion to WG if you are hell bent on keeping the 4k bond amount without providing additional means of getting bonds. Let people pick the tank they want drop it into their garage "locked" once they get the 4k bonds they can "unlock" it. Not really that hard to do.

That makes too much sense!!
