Why are there no bonds in frontline except the 250 from presieging?

Would love to know why there are no bonds for getting general of the army and supreme commander. No mention of changes anywhere until you have a good game expecting 50 bonds but don't get any. A little unfair, takes away the thrill of going after these medals int he first place.

I mean, if you prestige 10 times you get about 7000 bonds. That is definitely enough.

It's not so much the total bond economics I'm more upset at the reduced value of the medals and hence the enjoyment of playing the actual mode when there is less to try for.

Because a ranked battle season is right around the corner and they want to force us into earning bonds playing that mode.

So you'd rather have bond earnings based off how much you grind(how many times you prestige), instead of how much skill you have, and how much you actually contribute to the team(general of the army, etc)...

 

Got it.... LOL

Reduced value of the medals? Less to try for? You are joking, right? The more you rank up in battle, the more EXP you will get towards advancing your tiers, thus the faster you will prestige for bonds, and gold, and tanks (including 2 that are only obtainable via getting prestige 10 times in Frontlines (so far)).

IMO the bond amount is very low. You cant even demount equipment with 250 bonds. The credits is what Im here for.

 

Last campaign I made 40 million: How much would 40 million credits be in the shop ?

Am I noticing the credit earning economy is a little harsh this time around?

More skilled the player the faster they will rise with the prestige, so it's Grindy but skill will shorten the grind by a lot

No I'm not joking the thrill of having a great game and being the #1 general is just not nearly the same when all you get is a medal that doesn't even show up as a battle hero.

You used to get 50 bonds which is not a crazy amount but enough for it to be worth the challenge hence fun. 

At this point the only real reason to play this is the creds. Unless you have little LIfe/family/work/etc.. and can afford spending hundreds of hours crammed into 1 week superworkouts to get a tier 8-9 tank. (is the tier 9 even a premium credit earner? probably not). Worst of all you get almost no reward for doing just a partial grind say 1-2 or 3 prestige points gets you between 250 and 1k bonds<that's significantly less than what a decent player would've earned from the medals themselves last time around> a pittance not worth grinding at all. 

Having almost no worthy rewards to the great majority of players who cannot commit to ridiculous grinds is plain bad.

I started grinding without realizing just how bad it is until i actually read the regulations and it turns out i'm doing this for what?? 250 bonds for at least 15+ hours of playing. You can get far more playing randoms at tier X or even lower tier if you're a good player who will average 1 or 2 every few games this is plain disrespectful to the players, most of whom I assume do not yet quite realize just what they are<aren't> getting as last year's was full of pretty decent goodies.
