Lets Grind nighty to stay/ get into the Top 3000 just to grind nighty to obtain enough bonds. At this point I'd rather pay 20 bucks to buy the bonds directly just for this event. If you played the game you would of came up with another solution but as you dont walk in our shoes you are out of touch.

Why do we have to grind bonds on top of grinding clan wars campaign almost nightly? There's only so many hours in a day and as Wargaming loves to preach, most of us have families, jobs, and other things to do. 

 

This bonds 'solution' is a complete joke.

I said it earlier on here, the tank or bonds for people that earned them ....pick one, but not bonds to pay for a freaking tank...WG is so out of Touch...... but why should this surprise us..... or freaking sell bonds and get on with it.

Players on the NA server have just spent 17 days from 7:30 until 11:30 or later playing Clan Wars, clawed their way into the top 3000, and now have to get 4000 Bonds to buy our reward tank.

 

There are players who have skipped playing Ranked Battles after seeing the gold-spamming mess they turned into, or have spent the bonds they earned on equipment or directives.  Personally, I'm going to need to get 1609 bonds in the next 6 weeks to get my reward for doing well in the last Operation Gambit.  Let's break this down:

  • First, assume that I will only be playing tier 10, and each battle will last an average of 7 minutes.
  • Next, assume that half of all battles played in tier 10 tanks will be either all-tier-10 matches or ranked battles, such that there is the possibility of earning an appreciable amount of bonds.  From my own experience, only about 1/3 of my battles in tier 10 are all-tier-10-vehicle matches.
  • Assume that half of all matches played are victories.  You can earn bonds on a defeat, but only if you earn more than 400 BASE experience, which is rather difficult to do in a defeat.
  • Assume that the average base experience earned per victory is 700.  This translates to an average of 7 bonds per battle (https://worldoftanks...-grand-battles/ for xp->bonds calculator).
  • Therefore there will be 3.5 bonds earned per match, or an average of 15 bonds earned per hour, accounting for the assumption that only half of all battles played in tier 10 vehicles are all-tier-10-vehicle matches.
  • Earning 1600 bonds will therefore require 106.7 hours of playing tier 10 vehicles.

 

This is ridiculous.  I've just spent 70 hours since the start of the campaign playing to get a reward tank, and now I have to play for another 107 hours so I can purchase my tank?

 

The least that WG could have done is let us know when Ranked Battles were running that we would have to use bonds to buy our Clan Wars reward vehicle.

 

IS-5 anyone?

Hopefully they will open another ranked season or some other event in January with decent bond payouts.

Only if the bond payout is in January so its helpful.

Yup.  The shifted metagame and rampant gold-spam quickly convinced me to avoid the mode for the sake of my blood pressure.  In my opinion, there are two changes that would massively improve Ranked Battles:

  1. Rework the system for ranking up
  2. Eliminate gold rounds

That might make too much sense...

I wish I wouldn't have, it has been a headache and is now a complete joke. Just when WG looked like they finally will listen to the playerbase without overreacting, here we are.

Eliminating gold still wouldn’t work because Type 5 would be marginally hindered gun-wise and now impenetrable.

​Exactly... ON NA YOU BARLEY GET ALL TIER 10 GAMES! Adding a extra 16 day wont do anything basically. The NA population is to small for it to make a difference
