They just need to put an end to this mess...and have Meathead announce bonds in the Premium shop. 

 

I would gladly pay, let's say $20 Buckaroos, for 2,000 bonds.

Some in my Clan are pretty upset about the Bond requirement.  I have heard several suggest that this may be the last straw and will quit playing if the "Reward Tank" is not given based on game play and not on bonds earned.  I don't have a problem with the bonds being used as another form of adding perks to our tanks, but to tie them to Reward Tanks....is just plain wrong.  At the very most, the reward tank should cost no more than the bonds earned in the Campaign.  Wargaming is going to shoot themselves in the foot on this one if they stand firm on this requirement.  Just sayin!

I got lucky and was just shy of 5k when this bond thing was announced, but I can't imagine how pissed I'd be if I'd just bought equipment (or didn't have bonds in the first place) and would now be unable to get a tank.

 

Either remove the bond requirement or lower it to 500 or 1k. Everyone who got the tank will get at least that much, and the remaining bonds would be a nice bonus for exceeding the minimum requirements. Ranked battles is the worst game mode, trying to force people to play it isn't going to have any positive results.

I'm in that exact boat now... I have less than 200 bonds, and placed in the top 3k. Guess who is not getting a tank lol.

I can see alot of people just stop playing clam wars (and then the game) because of the crap WG is pulling this time on NA and hopefully that will finally kill off NA servers this time.

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.

 

THIS!

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.

 

Apparently you didnt listen to community feedback very much because the majority said the bond requirement was a dumb idea entirely, but whatever. If you want to gate it then you need to increase the likelyhood of all tier 10 battles, grinding bonds currently is painful

No, if it is a free reward tank it should be just that. It should be given free like every other campaign to date. If you earned it you get it. Not if you earned it you can now buy it.

If they wanted to use bonds to give away tanks, then the quantity of bonds necessary to get the tank should also have been available from the campaign. But instead we get this s#/+ show.

If you only have to grind 700 bonds you are one of the lucky ones.

I'm mixed on the whole bond thing.  On one hand I personally don't think the extra percentages you get is worth much, so I probably would never buy special equipment, directives, etc. with my bonds.    It's better to just run food for silver if its that important.  On the other hand I also I think having to spend so much time grinding bonds to get a reward tank is asking a lot considering we had to spend an incredible amount of time on the computer daily to get it.  Having this op right before Christmas, having 3 kids, made it especially difficult to do this campaign.  I'm online, trying to help my clan as much as possible, but missing out on the lead-up to Christmas with my kids, is a big price to pay.  I'd rather just pay $50 for a 907.  After all time is much more valuable than money.  So i think we should get that tank for no or very little bonds so some of us don't have to grind our asses off for the next month to get it.  I personally need a break from having to "work" in this game, and start having fun without the pressure of having to play certain tiers or do certain events, etc.   BTW, after I get 1500 bonds for Gambit, I'll have 3917 bonds so I can get the tank with little effort, but still the amount of time and dedication right before Christmas should count for something.   I'll be ok either way, whatever WG decides, but I know others won't and I'd hate to see people leave cause they're bitter.  They are other games to play and I think WG should remember this when figuring out what to do.

The real losers in all this are the good players, who deserve the tank, that spent their bonds without knowing they would need them for a reward tank.  That doesn't seem fair considering how hard it is to get bonds.  I'm sure many who spent the bonds, would have saved them if they knew they needed them.  I'm just lucky cause i don't see the value in the special equip for the time/effort it takes to get bonds.  So I never bought any.  I have a good idea.  Bring back the 8 bit tanks we had a couple of years ago.  That was fun and the crews trained up at incredible rates and WG can make it so we can earn bonds also.  This would be a good way to blow off some steam and have some fun.

They are on their way of doing that. Horrendous ping with 1 server, random assignment  to the LATAM and ITS even worse ping. NO 3v3 4v4, now this? Im not sure but does NA provide the most cash to WG? IF so, they are killing the cow.

provides the most per capita, but it earns less than EU or RU because the pop is so low.

Maybe the population wouldn't be so low if they weren't actively killing it here. Vicious circle this is.

The problem I have with the situation is how many battles it takes to get into a tier 10 battle to earn bonds.  I'm getting 2-3 tier 10 battles every 10-12 games.   At this rate, it's going to take me queuing up for 1200-1500 tier 10 games to get the rest of the bonds I need. 

 

WG needs to let us earn bonds from all tier 10 gameplay like Advances and CWs.
