Hi Tankers,

 

As many of you are aware, the Great Railway Heist event just started!


Complete missions to plunder rewards from a total prize pool of 60 Billion Credits and 65 Million Bonds. Outside of Ranked Battles this is the first in-game event focused around awarding players with Bonds!

Leave your feedback below, and I'll happily send it off to our Production Teams :)

I like it the way it's not based upon a "win".  That way your not penalized for an under performing team.  Rewards seem decent.

What he said.

 

+ It's always nice to win some premium time and XP boosters (secret missions thing)

I love it I personally never enjoyed ranked just people camping slinging gold and with their 8 grand battles I'm having a blast and getting a ton of credits

Not baking a win into the requirements is nice and it's super easy to get the 16 games in, baring potatoing out. 

 

I'm still grumbly about bonds in the first place,  a funky new currency really wasn't needed.

Not trying it to a win is nice, seems like a lot of matches for a small bonus though.

 

It's all nice and good to give out bonds, but do they have a real use in the game yet?  I refuse to buy the improved equipment since it just widens the gap between players that can play a lot and those that can't even more.  Don't have time for clans wars so I'll never be able to buy a tank that way.  The one time use things just seem kinda meh.  So I sit on 33k bonds with nothing to spend them on.

So far it si very enjoyable, and seems to be working as planned. Nice to see something where you get a reward without having to win.

EU gets more of both while the NA server gets shafted again.

I like this.  I agree that it's great that a win isn't required to get in on the "booty".  I've been critical of a lot things (the new store in particular), but this is a great idea.  Thanks Wargaming.

I am a mediocre player so it's been difficult for me to earn bonds; however with this event and with time and effort I am able to get a decent number of bonds without the frustration that often accompanied T10 ranked battles. We need more events like this. Also the T8 ranked battles is a good event but  would be even better if bonds were included for winning a game .

One of the best events yet, good for players of all skill levels to get bonds to spend as they please.

Has anyone else had battles in which you were the top 10 by experience, but it didn't get counted toward the completion of a mission? I have had it happen twice … support request is submitted.

The event itself works well, the issue is with the bonds currency and the things you can buy with it. Even considering events like this one, the sheer grind to have enough bonds to buy one piece of improved equipment (let alone 3, or 6....) is quite frankly unreasonable. And similarly with directives, if they're regularly used you'll always bleed more bonds than you earn back simply given enough time. 

 

To that end I propose two solutions. One is to allow bonds to be used for a number of other purposes. Small, cheap transactions that are immediately convenient and give purpose to having even just a handful of bonds available. Re-training crew, de-mounting equipment, converting free EXP, et cetera. Perhaps even something completely new like converting BIA into a zero-skill on existing crews.

 

The second is to sell improved equipment and directives for appropriate prices in credits. The whole point of introducing bonds in the first place was to motivate us to participate in ranked and tier 10 gameplay otherwise, and in doing so spend more credits. So why not just cut out the middle-man? And this could be killing two birds with one stone when you think about directives. Imagine if the one that gives sixth sense to a commander who doesn't already have it was very cheap (or even free). That would essentially solve the problem of the game being inaccessible to new accounts.

Honestly haven't a clue what it does. Eyes glazed over by the myriad missions and events.
