Is there anyone on the forums that you don't have an issue with? It seems that every post I ever see you on you are trying incredibly hard to bait other players when I think you are just salty yourself.

 

I find it very humorous that all the self-proclaimed WoT "pro's" are unable to grind out the required amount of bonds for their CW participation reward, when I have done it myself, with minimal participation in ranked battles.

 

All the claims of "I earned the CW reward" are also hilarious. Being in the top 44.7%, of the total number participating, is nothing you earned. It's a participation reward for being there, nothing else. Everyone knew before the campaign, bonds would be needed for the CW tank reward purchase. As soon as the campaign ended, the whining and crying began, and continues to this day.

  1. Earn 13,000 pure EXP points daily. This one’s more complicated, but guarantees 150 Bonds in your account at the end of the day.

 

My question is what is "pure" EXP.  Is this EXP prior to any reserves, premium tanks, premium time and daily x2, x3... or any other modifiers?

Pure exp, as in base exp.

 

 

when you look in the after battle tab of all the tanks and the exp posted next to each tank

Thanks for the clarification, these missions will be a big help to everyone still going for campaign tanks.

 

Especially for the ones that cannot participate due to the time zone difference.

That is what I was thinking, but have never heard it as "pure" always called base.

Agreed, I've never known my battle XP is that "PURE". I guess it came from direct translation of Russian. The closest I can think of is also "base XP".

Clarification from Q might help a little.

I haven't played CW.  Is there a reward tank that players can buy?

 

I thought bonds brought a 1 time consumable (similar to food) so 200 bonds would get approx 20 games with say 'steady hands' to improve snap shot?

 

I really haven't worried about bonds.  Looked to me to be just another currency to buy more stuff, and as I play randoms it's very hard to predict when I'm going to need an extra 2% boost to whatever so I really have been ignoring this.  Same as I've ignored all the Flag or Clover bling (now sold) and all that Booster DGAF giveaways.  

 

In addition to bonds, we still have stronghold 'resources' (WoWS calls that Oil), Gold and Silver.  I hope the next in game currency they add is Zeni just because DBZ is fun to watch.

This is a good idea, except the time frame is too short. I work 12.5 hours the first day, which means Ill sleep part of the second.

Maybe there should be an additional requirement to earning the bonds from this event.

 

Make them available only to those that add into the Stage 1 pool. If you don't make a deposit in Stage 1, can't make a withdrawal in Stage 2... :coin:

 

As it is, there is no incentive to "earn" bonds in Stage 1, with the ability to "earn" them in Stage 2, without any prior effort.

Being top 44.7% isn't earning a reward, it's a participation trophy.

 

As has been used over and over on these forums since the first campaign...

 

Get gud or join a gud clan... ;)

you are so full of **** that when you die they will give you an enema and bury you in a matchbox. You have NO CW reward tanks. Futhermore if your Clan ("you" and "your" as the general "you" or your", not you personally) were in the top 25 clans and you were personally ranked say 800 for the campaign, you would not be able to afford to buy the CW reward tank if you had not played a significant number of battles for bonds or in ranked battles. You would not have earned sufficient bonds to pay for it. Aside from your tier X arty you (this time the personal "you" have not played sufficient battles to actually earn 4000 bonds - and I doubt that even then you have played enough battles to generate that number of bonds given that you are terrible in tier Xs. Careful who you call out for "whining".

Now that I know that, I'll have to maintain a surplus to hedge against another of these "buy your reward" campaigns; maybe at least I can replace some of the bonds I lost to the last event.

 

Plus, we knew that the tank was going to require bonds but it wasn't until the day of the event we worked out that qualifying for the tank would not come with sufficient bonds to make the purchase.

 

I would add that this prevented many from choosing to participate and created a situation that prevented even more players from being able to earn enough bonds from the event.

 

For the record, reward tanks ARE a participation trophy.

P.S. so you played some ranked battles. Bully for you.

IMO; this is a great idea and should be made a "daily mission" like other on-line games have. It would promote players to log in daily and grind 250 bonds per day to improve their tanks. In this way you keep people engaged and coming back to the game daily. Most other online games have this daily mission objective as well. At 250 bonds per day that is only 6,000 per month which is equivalent to 1 1/2 pieces of equipment. It would take 2 months of logging and playing every day to get a full set for one tank only.

I am pleased you think that 309 battles is "minimal participation" in ranked battles. Your team-mates may have considered your participation to be minimal, but the rest of us would think that is a rather large number of ranked battles. Feels bad man.

The daily missions pay out when you complete a battle like any normal mission. The big lump sum will come at the end depending on your performance

 

I don't understand this. From reading the OP it sounds like we can earn up to 250 bonds per day for an undetermined number of days during Stage II. I don't see anything about a lump sum being paid out at the end of the event?

The crucial factor here is to remain active and persistent throughout the whole event and enjoy a well-deserved reward. So, hop in and join the chase!

 

Some would say that most people doing this for bonds just remained active and persistent throughout a different event and didn't enjoy any well-deserved reward, so hop in and enjoy the run around!
