Seeing the huge fuss the community made about Bonds before Ranked Battles started, I thought it'd be interesting to ask what piece of equipment you'll be spending those 'hard-earned' bonds on, and which tank you'll be mounting the improved equipment on.

 

I'll be buying the Stabilizing Equipment System for my Batchat, to try and improve the reliability of the gun.

Well I must say that grinding these so called new currency "bonds" is not worth the time, effort and credit. I found this mode just become another slug fest of tier X with slinging gold round. After several attempts to get at least 3 stars. Nope, this mode is not worth it. If the only reason to keep players playing this mode is these fancy unbalanced equipment, this mode should not exist in the 1st place.

I don't think i can afford any of the equipment to begin with, but my thought is to buy the improved vents. A slight improvement multiplied across more variables seems to be more bang for buck.

Improved vstab & rammer i think are by far the best you could buy with bonds.

 

Will personally buy rammer first

Stab rammer vents are pretty much the 3 things worth spending bonds on. I would say which one of the 3 would be personal preference tbh, but I would think stab provides the most improvement for most tanks that can mount it, otherwise would probably be rammer or vents, especially for lights to boost DPM/VR

What equipment for xx tank?

 

Q1. Is the gun derpy?: Y, go to Q2. N, go to Q3.

 

Q2. Is it a Batchat?: Y, Vstabs. N, Vents.

 

Q3. Is it an Autoloader?: Y, Vents. N, Rammer

 

Should cover most cases unless you want your Maus to be immune to all arty.

I refuse to have anything to do with RB and voted to that effect, but if I had any bonds, I'd be going for the upgraded Vstabs or Rammer for sure. Probably Rammer for Leo 1.

I guess determining was it worth the time/effort/credits is all relative, and should be compared to the cost of standard equipment, your time, and encredits spent against the improvement that can be given to a tank over an above the current maximum. I know that I wouldn't be able to justify the >7M credits and hours of gameplay for 1 piece of equipment, but others might.

Worst case, I just demount the vstabs and put it on something else. :hiding:

Yeah, it's really sad that RB is not profitable at all. I myself got to burn at least 1 million for 2 session of ranked battle in just a day. At least if I win a lot, the incentive could cover at least a quarter from what I spent, but since my hand is not as fast and steady just like the major players who plays RB mode, I just can't keep up.

Inovative Loading System, on my AT2, cause it fires too slow.  :trollface:

 

Sorry i couldn't bring myself to Play in the Ranked battles and contribute to MOAR unbalancing of Tanks.

 

Although i can't wait to see what the Seal Clubbers are be using.  Given there's Gold being spewed all the way down to Tier 2.

Cant wait to just buy them down the track,

I would have been putting my bonds towards an innovative loading system for the T67.
