They have been handing out 250 bonds a day to pretty much anyone who can click battle for a couple hours. Wonder what the returns were for those who had a crack at ranked battles?

Yeah, I don't like it right now because it's clear that only the top players are benefiting from the rewards because you need SO MUCH to buy anything useful.

 

I'd rather it be in a state where at this point everyone (or, arguably, everyone invested enough to grind the missions) can afford to trick out one or two tanks and better players can do so with more (say three to five). That seems more level and fair than regular players still having no effective access to fancy gear while top players have enough to dress up one or two tanks as Ultimate Clubbers.

So can someone from WG comment on whether we indeed have 20 million bonds left on the hunt. It would be good to know.

Maybe make it so that your effort during stage 1 determines how many bonds you can earn in stage 2?

No you misunderstand.

 

The amount of bonds you can earn is directly tied to your personal contribution to stage 1. Maybe capped at some level so that once you exceed a certain amount in stage 1 the bond pool size is leveled out. 

 

No battles in stage 1, you cannot earn any bonds in stage 2.

 

50% of some target in stage 1, 50% of the maximum bond earn

 

100%+ stage 1 target, 100% of max bond earn.

How many bots and in-actives did WG 'catch' with this event?

EVERY battle I was in during this event there would be a least one, if not multiples and then even 7 sub-humans on one occasion not moving a millimetre during an entire battle.

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.

 

 

 

You could add an element of a bond reward to the tank campaign mission rewards. eg StuGiv T28HTC T55a obj260.

That way everyone has access to earning them on their own time and not constrained to being online for a limited period like this event required.

Realistically the average player might achieve none or 1 item of improved equipment  in their lifetime, given the current low bond earning economy.

Yep. As we confirmed above, our multiplier was definitely less than that of other servers (except maybe NA?)

 

We got [edited] again. No [edited] surprises there.

Well, I managed to get a improved venting system to mount on Sheridan, while still 1K+ bonds left, thanks to these recent missions.
But seriously, WG needs to make the missions for bonds more often to get few of those special equipments, or else it will take ages to fully equip even 1 tank.

For mine they could pretty much multiply the bond rewards for medals by 10 and still not ruin the currency. The fact they opened them up to basically anyone who plays a couple hours a day indicates they no longer see them as being reserved for the good players via ranked.

or this may be an attempt to provide the missing bonds to those players who've own reward tanks in operation gambit.

Nor should they be.

 

Basically, as I posted elsewhere, I think the average person should be able to get enough to equip a couple of tanks if they put the effort in, whereas good players would be able to get enough to equip 2-3 times as many tanks as the regular folks. That's a much smaller disparity than good players being able to equip 1-2 tanks and regular players being unable to equip anything even if they really dedicate themselves to grinding bonds.

Nah, selling them would be too far on the scale of p2w. Whereras the credits for normal equipment can be earned in a reasonable amount of time, the bonds for a single imp equipment would probably take a year or two.
