My apologies, the announcements we're poor and my follow up was weak.

I am personally working to make things better, communications wise.

Thanks. And don't mind us, we realise getting a straight answer out of HQ must be a challenge.

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

 

winning is only important for the #2 mission of 13k base exp. the #1 mission only requires top 10 for 15 games to win 100 bonds.

Absolutely not a critique of you as Ezz said, we just can’t pass up a generic WG meme opportunity.

I know the object is to get players to play more games - so we'll all Unisprem gold rounds for damigez etc,

But there's no way i can play even 15 games a night coz life stuffz, let alone achieve those missions. 

Maybe on a weekend

I find the missions to be dead easy! No complaints on that side of things. Just hope this lasts long enough for me to finally buy a piece of fancy-pants equipment.

At current rate I'd guess 10 or 12 days. Of course I'll still probably be short of anything improved so it may end up being a bit meh. But at least all it is is playing for a couple hours.

I was hoping it'd be a bit longer, but yes, consumption seems to have increased a bit. It will take me about 15-16 days to get up over the 5000 mark, so here's hoping...

The fact that it is big and red is how you know it needs to be pressed!

Basically, it runs until all the bonds run out. We have plans for bonds in the future. We're considering to add more stuff to buy with bonds, things like that. 
Events like this may be one of the ways to earn bonds easier. I'll be honest, I want those improved equipment but ever since bonds arrived, I only have like 250~ish today

 

So yes, please throw ideas at us.

One of the big suggestion has been to open grand battles to T9 tanks as well as TX. That would give players at least one more bond-earning opportunity in T9.

Well that's me done with these missions, easy enough to complete but far to grindy and time intensive especially on a school night, just not worth the effort. I think 2 days is my new record for losing interest in one of these events.

This whole thing is typical WG TBH. I don't know whether it's intended to get more CW vehicles claimed (bit late if this is the case, most people already did the horrible bond grinding if they wanted it. If there was some forewarning that an event like this was coming they could have saved people a lot of pain.) or to make the next season of ranked more appealing by giving people some bonds to get them invested but either option kinda leaves a bad taste. Add to that the collection missions not starting at the proper time and the lack of communication about that turn an event that should be highly appreciated for giving free stuff into another example of poor planning, execution and communication.

The widget on https://worldoftanks.asia/en/news/general-news/update-922-bonds-grand-hunt/ that tells you how many bonds are remaining appears not be working anymore

Well, it was due to run out about tomorrow, so I'm not going to complain if it happens to run longer...

 

Still only at about 3500 bonds. Even with an event like this the cost of this equipment and/or the bond rewards is just silly.

 

I don't actually mind if Unicums have more of this equipment than us regular scum, but right now we have a situation where Unicums have 1-3 pieces and the rest of us have none. A better balance would have been if Unicums had 3-5 by now and regular player had 2-3, 'cause at least everyone could equip ONE tank with an equipment or two.
