There is always a possiblility for CW tanks to show up eventually in the bond store -- they still cost bonds even thru the auctioning in CW bid system so i don't see why they wouldn't show up

IF they can sell the Monster they can sell clan wars tanks and should. Reward tanks should only be exclusive for a year.

They've confirmed the fvs and the foch I don't think they're going to put tanks they've sold for money up for grabs. I wouldn't mind if they put the t22 up for sale irrc they nerfed it into irrelevancy anyways. As for the old cws rewards I'm 50/50 on liking it if they sold them for bonds.

I am doubtful about the Mutant 6 plus I picked one up on my other account for gold, as for CW tanks I think that the exclusivity period has gotten pretty long and some are not very good with the exception of the 907. All that I hope for is that the prices are not insane and that regular players get to buy something that is at least worth using even if it only be for casual use.

 If WG removed one of the present tanks as a possible reward, I could see them offering it for bonds. I don't see this happening as long as the tank is a possible reward since it would effectively remove the reason the reason to play the campaign.

It wouldn't be the first time they've offered for sale what could be earned for free in the game. Regardless if it's a mission or campaign reward tank. I'm pretty sure there was another thread here in the forums where it was mentioned on the EU or RU, they said all tanks, including reward tanks, could be available.

 

Also, bonds for cash purchase will probably be next.

So what we're saying is premium tier 10s with extra steps...

I hope to god that doesn't happen unless the option to even buy bonds requires some battle count or other achievement and even then.

E2 is the Jumbo, which is in the techtree. Pretty sure the Beta Sherman is an E4.

It is the only currency ( and is touted as such ) that one cannot shortcut and buy.  Bonds can only be earned or gifted by WG via missions ( earned as well ).

 

It shall remain that way.

They still don't earn extra credits so it's not quite premium. People can't grind them to earn the credits for their next tank in the same way one can in a tier 8.

I think that Clan Wars tanks should only potentially go into the bonds store after 2 or 3 years. A one year lead seems to me like it would be a disincentive to doing the work.

Admittedly any guideline for removing exclusiveness after a period of time is arbitrary. I thought  a year would be longer than most  players would stick with using that tank. A lot happens in releasing  new tanks, tweaking old tanks, and tweaking the game. I refrain from saying fixing the game because well... reasons.

That is certainly true. The only issue then is why play the campaign if you can get the tanks after a season of ranked battles or by doing well in a couple of tourneys.  Nobody would.  In my opinion WG does not want to discourage participation in CW campaigns so I don't see them doing this as long as the tank is a campaign reward.  I could very much see them removing any of the now 6 tanks as reward and them selling it for bonds.

For me (besides the obvious lack of talent) the grind of C.W. is too long and not worth it. Let alone the egos involved the few times I tried to keep a team together was not worth it for a (laughably) free game. Vilin and G both recruited my best players including an awesome play caller. The other players lack of willingness to follow directions probably had more to the loss of those two excellent players though. Egos

  1. Foch 155
  2. FV215B
  3. FV215 183

These are the first 3 to start the bond store within the first 6 months of this year

There are many choices for what comes next

 

  1. Pz V/IV
  2. Mutant
  3. A-32
  4. E4 Sherman

These could be. The Mutant is a decent seller at this point, even though the back story about it never being sold again. It's a touchy subject for many players that got these tanks many years ago.

 

  1. T-34 Shielded
  2. SU-122-54
  3. T30 (as a Heavy Tank ;) )

Possibly other older tanks that we got through marathons or "gift" tanks. They have said the WT E-100 would never be coming back except for the China server (Thus why the tank was changed and made into HD).

 

Then there is a door left open. They can add in tier 9 and tier 10 "special" tanks. These tanks won't be premium tanks for earning credits (Foch 155, FV215B, FV215 183, SU-122-54)

 

I am not in favour of them adding the Clan Wars tanks unless they make a whole new line of 6 Clan Wars tanks and "retire" the current 6 Clan Wars tanks and put them in the bond shop. These guys put a huge amount of time into the game and then you want to remove one of the most enticing things about Clan Wars? If they did - it would have to be a price that would make doing Clan Wars a better way of getting those tanks. 20,000? 25,000?
