Maybe I’m a lot more out of touch than I thought. I know I’m a bit out of touch.

 

if I offered you the following as a Prize from Ranked Battles which would you choose?

 

a large amount of bonds (whatever large means to you).

a moderate amount of credits (ditto)

a small amount of gold

 

i’d choose credits, gold, then bonds. Am I missing something?

Oh and that’s aside from the fact I know there are credit rewards for Ranked, I remember now cos that’s the only reason I participated last time.

Generally speaking I would sell all my thousands of bonds for credits if that was an option.

I have a boatload of credits, so I'd probably buy your bonds for credits if I could.

 

I value bonds most right now because I have very healthy amounts of credits and gold at the moment. Probably going to blow some gold converting free XP the next time there's a discount, but really, I don't spend insane amounts of gold and it's easy enough to get.

 

The only things I'm interested in purchasing right now that I can't already get are things you buy with bonds.

Yeh I thought as much
They are completely worthless 9x out of 10 unless you are a complete Pro eking out those last few per cent of advantage.

I’m not that pro, and you’re not that pro, and 94% of us aren’t that pro, so it is a very very stupid reward.

Gimme credits then I will be a happy player

1% is 1%... I'll take it, ya know? A scrub like me'll take any incremental advantage I can get. Also, it depends on how things are stacked. If you're increasing your base multiplier with multiple stacked bonuses, it'll be more than a 1% difference.

 

Realistically though, the only REAL effect that'll be significant enough to be noticeable are vision and gun handling improvements.

You have never ever been so right in my view. 

 

I am almost always credit poor, I seem to have no problem grinding xp on multiple tanks and unlocking the next tier is generally (with some exceptions) not a particularly onerous or difficult task. But I usually have several unlocked high tier tanks I don’t have enough credits to buy. 

 

Mainly because with tier 8 mm so bolloxed I generally avoid playing my tier 8 premiums except for when I absolutely have to preferring tiers 7 & 9  as the most fun. 

 

Gold is always nice to get too but I won’t burn out to get it as an award on some soul destroying grind mission. 

 

Bonds? Meh I find ranked just well...... rank ... and why on earth would I want to play a mode that somewhat encourages players to shoot premium ammo even more than random and get to meet more arty than ever? Then also is tier 10 only which at best you break even on credit wise... all so I can get a special piece of equipment which is not going to transform a tanks effectiveness. Frankly that is my idea of tank hell. 

 

I win a few bonds here and there for when I do decent in random battles and eventually that will accumulate enough to buy a special equipment which I will most likely put on a tier 8 premium so that I can marginally feel more effective for the 75% of battles in which it will be bottom or at least not top tier... yay. 

 

Did I miss anything? (Probably, knowing  RNG).

All I have to say is thank [edited] for my Lorraine 40t. It's what makes T8 credit grinding tolerable and even fun.

I guess I'll try a few in the old IS7 and see how miserable it is.
