Id probably be spending mine on my premium vehicles. More pew = more credits (in most cases)

So either rammer for JT88, T26E5 or Fv4202... Or Rammer/ Vents / Optics for CromB for the trolls

I'm not good at this game, its just that the rest of the server sucks~

I think first vent and then loading system for all types of tanks.

Got enough for two pieces of equipment now. Thinking I'll get Vents for my Batchat, to go with the Vstabs. (Should I get optics the next time around for a full set? :hiding:)

You guys that have bought equipment, what do you think are the best ones? I'm about to buy my first piece, thinking improved vstabs?

Well initially i was think of vents and experimental optics for my light tanks, as i like using lights for recon. But now with the armored cars coming out i am thinking along the lines of the panhard and running vents and toolbox. Why? as i said in another part of the forums forget where. Because the panhard has wheels it wont be tracked and at a standstill, BUT will slow down so im figuring with toolbox 40% crew repairs 50% large tool consumable 10% BIA 5% and experimental vents 7.5% will give a total of 112.5% increase in repair speed over stock. This will be a super fast repair speed and i am free to fight the vehicle with no distractions of pushing buttons in the middle of battle the repairs should be quick before i get the next hit in the suspension. I guess if i wanted to go all get out i would get rations for another 10% and pre battle maintenance of another 10% for a total of 132.5%, but i think that is a bit of overkill. 

 

From what i can see with armored cars, the name of the game is to stay mobile and you will be hard to hit and stay alive. So get the armored car when they first come out, bung my top French light crew into it with a french gal radio operator, have a grand old time, before WG's comes along with the nerf bat.

I got Vstabs first.

 

Now I'm back up to about 4750 in bonds... hoping to get Vents for my STB-1 (it also got the VStab).

 

Between the two, I'll have the STB's goofy gun handing pretty well sorted, and the actual underlying ACCURACY isn't so bad. plus with Dirty Vents. I'll have almost entirely negated the penalty for not having Optics.

 

By the way, don't forget there are combo purchases now for Dirty Equipment. After I get these vents, I'm going to hold off until I can buy two equipment at a time.

Given the cost of changing them (200 bonds) you are best advised to pick the tank as well, hence the equipment choice can vary somewhat. But ivstabs is pretty safe as it'd be on almost everything. Improved vents is the other one i hear about except i don't use vents on many tanks so it'd have to be specific for that one tank (eg my t49 . t100lt).

 

Personally i've not bought any basically because i'm sure i'd get bored of whatever tank it was and so have to move them. Plus they're more expensive than i feel comfortable grabbing without knowing 100%.

I think my next pair after I get the two for the STB would be another VStabs/Vents. VStabs for the Leopard 1 and Vents for a high-tier LT, probably my AMX 13 90.

 

But at the rate they hand out bonds, might be a [edited] YEAR before I get that far.

Mod note: typically reviving threads >2months is considered necroing, but I'm ignoring it this time for the following reason(s).

 

- Thread info is still relevant to the present discussion

- The vote is still (mostly) relevant to the discussion.

 

~neokai

 

Personally I will just buy combo bundles and figure out where to mount them later. A 1k bond saving is too good to pass up. Also, tier X tanks earn bonds markedly faster, so keep that in mind when making bond purchases.

Oh boy, this thread is alive again. Thanks for keeping it open I guess. :)

So I never ended up spending my bonds and I now have over 45k.

 

I'm thinking that in the future, WG will have a 'Bond Shop', where rare and exclusive tanks will be on offer, so I'm currently stockpiling. (Foch 155, 215b, Deathstar etc.)

Was considering adding that to the poll options, but I don't know if anyone else is saving.

Seriously, that's enough for 10 pieces of dirty equipment... yikes. The only discontinued TXs which would interest me are maybe the Death Star or the Foch 155, but I'd bet quite a lot that you'd have to have the existing TX unlocked before being allowed to buy them.

 

Now, if you could buy the 907 with bonds outside of Clan Wars, THEN you'd have my attention.

I've got 8.3k at the moment.

 

Not sure what piece of filthy dirty equipment I will get. Maybe kit out the funster (Even 90) with a full suite of dirtiness for added giggles.

I'd be considering one of the dirty equipment bundles via the in game Bond Shop. Discount of about 1,000 bonds IIRC. Sitting on a bit under 10k myself so tossing up buying that OR hanging out for "whatever may come next"...
