When can we expect new vehicles to be added? Wondering if it's better to wait or just buy a T10 now.

Why campaign reward tanks?

Why not?? It's not like they are offering any of the CW rewards tanks that people actually want...

IIRC, WarGaming said they were including the M60 and 121B because so few people play those tanks that they can't get useable statistics from them.

To make elitists who think nobody else deserve such tanks whine.

Give an opportunity for players that cannot play in the narrow window called 'prime time' a chance to earn/play them tanks.

After all you got another tank to get in Rank Battles, again only for the same players.

 

btw I got both the M60 and 121B today. When will I able able to get my hands on the Chieftain? 6 months for now should be long enough wait :P

I'm tempted to get the M60 since that was the tank we had with 3/70th Armor "back in the day". 

 

Just a couple of hundred more bonds and it'll be mine. :)

This is just an extension of one the basic underlying problems in Wargaming titles, WoT in particular.

 

That problem is the growing numbers of psuedo-currencies you "have" to grind for, accumulate.  I get it "special event" might have some point system that builds to a reward and that's one thing but it's when some means of value exchange goes beyond that specific event that i think it becomes a problem. I get it WG is here to make money. The problem with Bonds is that for the more casual player of modest skill they are virtually out of reach. It's ok that some things DO come from being the best etc but when the bulk of players live, play and quit from much lower Tiers it doesn't seem like a game population-building tool to me.  There is an irony that you'd have to play at the higher tiers, at the highest performance levels to get...Tier V tanks.

IF CW hadn't turned into a painful CampFest / Grind, more people would play.

I've not played CW in years (before bonds were ever introduced). I have (had) 28000 bonds. I just bought an M60. You can't keep lowering the bar so that every "casual" player has access to stuff. Should they make the 279e obtainable by just logging in and playing enough games too? There is a player retention problem to be sure, but that equally applies to those of us playing for a long time - once you have researched all the tanks, there's only so much left to do. These things help with that. But lowering too much makes it valueless. What you should be advocating for are other ways to keep lower tier casual players, not to make the bar lower to get these special tanks. I mean you can get a couple of lower tier vehicles just by doing the personal missions. And if you lack the skills for that (not the time required, because you have FOREVER) then that's a good thing. We want players to work to get better which makes them enjoy their experience more and stay longer.

907 absent of course.

Only earn a paltry 25 daily if you have a premium acct otherwise 0 of course.

Earn bonds from medals an anemic # of course.

I posted this previously on another thread, before they added this official discussion. My wish list for bond shop tanks:

 

SU76i

T23E3

Chieftan/T95

KV4 Krevlaskiy

KanonenJagdpanzer (original one without the 105)

T22sr (this should be a no brainer since it was a total mess of a mode when they introduced it and the NA server particularly basically had to cheat to get it since the population was so low)

that fact that they are not played is meaningful in a way 

 

I don't plan on acquiring either with my hoarded up bonds.  *shrug*
