Hello Commanders,

 

We are kicking off with The Grand Hunt, our Bonds Marathon! Our news article explains what it is all about and we want to make sure everyone is up to date and informed about it.
First of all, what is Bonds? Bonds is a currency in World of Tanks that players can earn through fight in Tier X only matches or by earning certain achievements (High Caliber, for example). Currently, players can use these bonds in getting the edge in battle by buying directives or improved equipment.

 

The Marathon we are having will give a chance for everyone to get a bunch of bonds and we encourage everyone to participate.

We have created this thread to collect your feedback and also have a place for you to discuss with us what you think about the marathon and bonds in general.

 

Thank you very much for your continued support. Roll Out!

Hi Ezz, based on what I have, Stage 2 should power up at around 1000 UTC

Yeah, so in a little less than a day, I guess? It would make sense since they said the pool was a 3-day event.

Yep. I will update the OP soon with more information. I realize the article does not have a lot of information that is helpful. Will get back to you guys ASAP.

If you guys check the widget in the article, there's just under 20 million bonds, so go go go get it! :)

Good hunting!

That's a consistent problem with all marathons. It would be better if missions had a 24 hour period for completion from the time they become active, i.e. reset at 14:00 (+08:00 UTC).

WG Asia in poor event communication shock. If only they had given complete, accurate and timely information like they did with the last event..

I tried for the bonds and played quite a bit and didn't manage to finish the mission. I don't think I have the time to get them. Stink.

Pick your good win rate tanks, capping gives you good xp, shoot higher tier tanks and ALWAYS go for tracking shots.

Or just play high tier tanks if you can afford it and play in them reasonably well. Easy-peasy.

High tiers less critical. XP is reasonably balanced across the tiers. Winning is the critical aspect to XP as puggs noted.

We also felt telling the community this in advance may cause some angst so chose to keep this rather critical element secret.
