Does anyone know if bonds can still be earned for epic medals below tier ten with the change?  They gloss over that in the video and news posting.

Nope. Huge nerf to bond earning for decent players. No longer can you earn a good 15 ish+ per game and your locked to only 100 per tank per week. AND you have to play the slog that is tier 10...

That is what I thought, this change is flat out bad.  If this change was in addition to the current epic medals tier four plus give you bonds I'd care less about it.  But now it's like a big kick in the butt by Wargamming for wanting to play with friends that don't have tier tens or any of the premium tanks I have.

bonds were to be an end game content from the get go - now its more defined as end game content - either you play tier 10s , events and specials for bonds or you just don't get bonds, i don't mind the changes one bit, but i only play tier 8 to 10s so tier 8 and 9 i won't get bonds oh well , that means i just have to play the few tier 10s for 34 games per tank to earn my 500 bonds per week then be done, at least its a predicatble ammount to earn

I get the majority of my bonds from Battle Pass Elite Progression and the Daily Missions.  Will that continue?

It will probably be a nerf to those that play a lot of tier 10 every day and are decent players but with the daily missions I've been raking in way more then every before just playing 1 to 5 games a night mostly tier 7 to 9.

15ish per game if you do amazing or a consistent 7 per match if you win or 5 if you don't and still do amazing? Also allowing the average players with tier 10's a reason to battle at tier 10. 

 

No more seal clubbing tier 4 battles :P

Change the cap so it's set number per week not per tank and I'm all in with the changes.

If you have 1 tier ten tank, you can get 400 bonds a month, if you have 2, 800 bonds a month, 3; 1200, 4; 1600, etc....

You do understand that is worse right? 100 per account per week or 100 per tier 10 tank you own per week.

They haven't said anything about changing it,at least not now.

 

But it is WG,and their greed will likely bring changes to that system at some point.

Ahh, the daily missions for blueprints that are worthless............  Really wish blueprints let you get cool skins or something, since once you have all the tanks it's just like YAY more blueprints.  Heck let me trade blue prints for bonds!

Why is tier 8 not included when it comes to earning bonds given that it is one of the most important tiers and one of the biggest income sources for the game?

That is what I was wondering this change devalues all tier eight premiums slightly.

It's a terrible idea getting rid of bonds for epic medals.  Those are a ice little bonus rewards for good games.  All this is is WG trying to force players into playing Tier X more often, which is a credit sink.

Looks like tier 8 already has a purpose for players to play that tier. Tier 10 play doesn't really have a good reason beyond getting practice for Clan Wars. 

 

This is my speculation, but play 8 to fund tier 10 play, and if it was my decision I would allow some bonds for tier 9 as well.

The bottom line?  It's always about the money and once again it's no different.  You want bonds?  Gotta play tier X.  Tier X is credit drain?  Need more credits?  Buy premium time and/or get more premium tier VIII tanks.... cha chang!  $$$$

I would also like to ask if daily missions will also continue to include some bonds rewards.

At this time yes, as well as other events and giveaways from myself and other WG employees.
