These are separate and should be in addition to your daily battle efficiency bond earnings

 

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

 

No Victory needed. Just top 10 exp on your team

 

 

Can you please clarify this? As I understand it, the event will run like so:

 

Phase 1) Players earn as many bonds as they can this weekend in the normal fashion, and that total number earned is magnified in some way by WG to form the "total prize pool". 

Phase 2) After that you have the missions to earn a max of 250 bonds per day (on top of any epic medals that you earn on your own). This continues until the total prize pool of bonds is depleted.

 

 

Where is this "big lump sum" at the end coming from?

Done, and done! Wow, so much quieter and peaceful around here once you blacklist all the complainers... Why doesn't WG do the same?

There are only two reasons you would need bonds: 1) improved equipment and directives; and 2) to pay for the supposed "reward tank" from the campaign. Come on Wargaming why don't you just admit that you really messed up with the campaign and that the majority of players who "earned the right to buy the tank" will never get it due to the cost? How is this a "reward"? Now they must "campaign" again in the hope to get those bonds they lack? (Disclaimer: I have the reward tank as I had the bonds but very many do not). Don't give us this sh*t that somehow this is in preparation for 9.22 - unless of course you are now going to make new Tier X's only researchable for bonds (which will REALLY upset players). GG.

 

This , is exactly how I feel, screw another campaign ....... and screw grinding bonds...WG done screwed up ......

There's a lot of questions in this thread about the wording "Pure XP".  My thinking is that in Russian speak base XP has always been called "base XP", so  I believe "pure XP" means total XP *including* Personal Reserve bonus, daily x2 bonus, premium account bonus, everything added = Pure XP.

 

Clarification from WG about "Pure XP" would be appreciated.

Stage 1 is unclear.  How are we earning bonds in stage 1?  Just by normal means as usual, the way you get them in random battles, etc?

Stage I. Generating the prize pool

The first stage of The Grand Hunt starts on Jan. 19 and lasts three days. This is where tankers should be particularly active, as it's a decisive period to define how many Bonds you can put in your wallet.

By the end Stage I, we'll total all the earned Bonds and increase this number significantly. This very number will form a total prize pool, which every player will eventually fight for.

 

So what influences the prize pool?  Tier played?  Battle result?   XP earned?   Do we have a special game mode for it?

Exactly.

@Quemapueblos  How do we increase the prize pool?

Following typical WG announcements, this is as clear as mud.  What is this "lump sum", what is "more complicated" about the payout amount for the 13k "pure XP" (why did you make up a new name for xp?), and why is the method for which you are increasing the bonds a mystery until stage 1 is over?  This is not going to end well.

It means only XP generated by German tanks, not the dirty countries.

I'm guessing it means the XP earned, without the effect of premium, victories, boosters, etc.

That's base XP and has been since the game was in alpha....

Get rid of yet another currency.

 

Most important of all - Get rid of the ability to use equipment from that currency to play in Random's.  Keep it only for other battle types.
