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

I for one am grateful for the opportunity to have been provided with a sense of pride and accomplishment for unlocking different bonds.

+1 on some next level BS. 

 

WG needs to either take bonds for reward away or give everyone in the top 3k spots 4k bonds AND the extra bonds for place too.

 

But, they've already programmed the user interface so nothing will change.  I fully expect to get [edited] out of my reward that I just played 3 weeks to get.

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.

 

I agree with you maybe the people who worked hard and cant get the X tanks maybe they should get the VIII, I agree with the bond system because not everyone should get a tank after all you said it its a REWARD not a freebe. Regardless they should hand out other goodies as compensation.I worked hard in the campaign to be in the top 8 clan and to get the tank and the 3 camos i also worked hard to grind over 800 bonds to be safe. I hate to say it but its life. Only the best should get the top tank and remember the reason why they did this time was because the last campaign people were paying to get into the top clan and only fight a few battles and theyd get a free tank and not have to try where others would try and try and try and wouldnt get anything i know i was one of them.

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.

 

When are yo going to let us know about the "other in-game activities" to earn bonds?

Currently have only 425 bonds right now, and will be getting 1000 right off the bat for my clan/personal ranking....so I somehow have to pull 2,575 bonds out of my rear.....in a little over 1 month. I really hope those other bond-earning options are announced soon.

Why make the reward for a team based competition obtainable with a currency that can only be obtained in non-team based game modes?

 


 If you're looking for ideas of other in-game activities to earn bonds, consider running a few war games where bonds are rewarded.

I agree on the fact getting a T X Campaign tank with bonds is stupid.

 

But I aint even getting a clan multiplier and I have my 4000 Bonds so... ?

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

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.

 

However, That was announce prior to the campaign start.

All I have to say is that for those of us in middle clans like myself, just getting to the top 3000 was a tough grind in and of itself. My clanmates and I spent about 5 or 6 hours a night for 21 days to get in the top 3000. That is a crazy grind and now we have to grind for something that we "earned?" Come on WG, please change this somehow. Tier ten battles don't give out enough bonds for this to work and on top of that, you aren't even guaranteed a battle where you can earn bonds. I only have about 590 bonds in my account (Due to the fact that they NEVER said the "reward" tank would be purchasable with bonds) and earned 500 from where I ended up with no clan multiplier because that system is another joke. So I will have to grind 2900 bonds in a month!? That is obviously about 100 bonds per day. Now I know that is not impossible, but we should have already finished our grind to get the tank if we are in the top 3000 in the first place, right?

It was written from the very beginning, that tank will cost 4000 bonds: https://worldoftanks...it-regulations/

Block Quote

10.1.1. The "Operation Gambit" event provides the following awards: bonds, unique badges, digital camouflages, and unique medals. In addition, the 3,000 best players of the "Operation Gambit" event will be able to exchange bonds for a Tier X vehicle, which was previously awarded for victories on the Global Map.

10.1.2. A special exchange rate of bonds for vehicles (М60, VK72.01 K, Object 907, Т96Е6 and 121B) for Operation Gambit only is 4,000 bonds.

10.1.3. One player can exchange bonds for one vehicle only.

 If you don't like it you don't not play.

Are ou kidding? MAHOU has about nine members who are ranked in the top 500 after less than 20 games. The clan multiplier, elite front, and research points have completely killed that argument. The difference between the top clans and the rest is so huge that, if anything, buying a spot is more appealing than before because of the bond multiplier.

I for one look forward to suffering through endless hours of essentially playing chance with the MM to accrue the additional bonds I need.
