Well done to all those who place in the top 3,000 players! You guys fought hard, were ever-present to support your clan through the grind and at times stressful moments. For the 3,000 of us that made it, well there's no reward for us. Keep looking. If you're lucky enough to have 4k bonds sitting around, congrats you got yerself a well deserved tank. For the chumps that either aren't getting a clan bond boost or didn't have any bonds saved up.. Well get grinding. You only have 1 month to grind out "X" amount of bonds.

 

Whomever at WG staff thought this whole bond shenanigans was a great idea, clearly hasn't played ranked or sat around for 22 days of campaign misery and this is just pure bollocks. Due to community feedback you extended the date into which we can purchase the tank that should've been given to us. Thanks. Now if only you guaranteed bonds in a game. I really hope those of you who don't have a clan multiplier for your personal bonds actually get the tank..

That would require too much effort from the game host.

Me thinks that the emphasis on bonds this time around was no more than an effort to soak up the bonds already sloshing around in the game.

Making the cut should have awarded the minimum bonds necessary for the tank and future rewards being tied to bonds then announced so there was an expectation that bonds would be necessary not just this greedy cash grab that requires us to use whatever reserves we've managed to accrue.

 

I call foul cause there is definitely blood on the court.

 

p.s.The more they do to force tier 10 play the less I enjoy this game.

I barely have 1,100 of them and haven't owned more than that. Never took part of the ranked battle fiasco that seems to have come out ways.

Ranked battles are worse then pubs, so fun to watch the top win8 people are you team hugging the red line in a Maus sniping. I thought the game was team focused but ranked battles really proved me wrong, it encourages the opposite.

Man, I'm glad I skipped out on the mess that was this campaign.  Even more so with the convoluted reward system.

   Actually, for a campaign it was pretty straightforward this time.  One of the easier ones to manage, although the greatly shrinking land had something to do with that.  Wish you would have come out.  The only pain is the bonds for tanks.  Meh.  I've got 2k just from playing, will get another 1k in rewards, and can easily get the other 1k by the deadline.  Just irritating there isn't a real 'reward' other than grinding.

Agreed, The land situation was sad there were days you could only chip 1 time slot an hour because the only 1 top of hour land was full of 32 teams, I think every province should have been opened and stayed open throughout this campaign, I fell slightly short of a tank, which I guess is good because I only had 150 bonds would of had to play 10-12 hours a days to even come close to getting the bonds, but I have to disagree with this campaign was straight forward, hence all the craziness going on throughout this campaign and confusion.

I stopped expecting any semblance of sense from WG a looonggg time ago. Bond idea, worse idea ever. They may get it right one day..... Maybe

^^ Pretty much spot on with what i did over the past 2 weeks...about 800.  And I was not grinding.  It was play a 10  here and there and mostly solo.  Now if you need 2k you are in trouble.  That amount of grinding is aids.  You just either didnt do well enough in the campaign or havent been playing enough 10s since the whole bond system came out.  And now its up to WG to make it right for you.

 

Now I do think WG should extend the time limit for one to get the 4k bonds indefinitely-I don't see a reason for a time limit.  And I think one should be able to sell improved equipment back. Because the bonds thing for reward tanks came out of nowhere.  

 

NOW Finally, THE REQUIREMENTS WERE SPELLED out at the start of the campaign.  No one changed anything...WG didn't pull something back or deceive anyone about what was expected on how to get a reward tank.   If you were so far off on bonds why did you play anyways?   I don't get it.   The clan multipliers really did not change after the first few days.  Why keep grinding on with a clan in a x2?  Makes no sense that you would expect WG to compensate and make up for what was clear from the outset.

 

I think a lot people [edited]dont play enough tier 10s to have any bonds.  They hate the tier and cost and would rather club in pubs or play 6s all day.

If playing a campaign is so unbearable then why did you do it? I personally enjoy playing almost all forms of special battles.

Running campaigns is always the worst, this one in particular due to the intricacy of the rules.

 

That being said it was a solid campaign, rules just need to be tweaked a bit, as do the rewards, na didn't have high enough participation to justify giving away 3k tanks. Should probably shrink it next time around

Bonds, in general, are an unnecessary and un asked for addition to the game. Tying them to a campaign reward without any forewarning was just compounding the stupid.

 

But what really confuses me about the bond requirement for the campaign is: Why make the reward for a team based competition obtainable with a currency that can only be obtained in non-team based game modes?

 

I didn't participate in ranked battles much because at the times they were running, in the window I am on, clans were running advances and war games, and I'd rather participate in the limited team based battles that occur than play another solo pub mode.

 

They should run a few war games where bonds are rewarded.

Campaign was fun to play, though I would definitely like to have more clarity in terms of rules and end dates.  4k bonds as well... yeah, a little high, especially for the low amount of clans that got multtipliers above x2.

totally agree, you rarely see close games it is mostly 15-0 or 14-1
