Hello Everyone, 

 

The Great Railway Heist has begun! It's time to get some bonds! Bonds are great for getting that improved equipment or for that extra boost of directives for that next important battle. Here's an event that can get you a lot of bonds more easily. You can find out all the details by visiting the article about it.

 

As for this thread, please let us know your comments, feedback, and suggestions. 

 

Thank you very much and good luck on the Great Railway Heist!

Not sure if by design or not but it appears you only start the missions once the previous (1 battle / 5 battle) ones are complete. Meaning it's 21 battles for the full bondage as opposed to just 15.

I was under the impression that the battles counted across missions as well. If they were cumulative it ought to be indicated in the mission (i.e. Rewards: unlocks next mission; Conditions: complete previous mission (if any), etc).

Well, I'll take any bonds I can get, so I did do the 21. Hope this goes for as long as it can...

Thanks for not making us have to win the battle as well. That would have made this promotion very frustrating as I lost 23 out of 33 battles last night.

Missions are far too easy, some people exploit this by jumping into battle and suiciding resulting in very inconsistent teams. Change a few of the mission parameters so that it encourages players to actually play properly. 

For example:
- Play a battle in a tier VI or higher vehicle
- Win the battle
- Deal half the HP of your vehicle

How do you end up top 10 if suiciding at the beginning of the game?

You don't need to win, you literally just yolo in do a bit of damage/spotting or get a kill and more than 50% of the time you will be in the top 10 for exp. You basically pray that you do better 5 other players or that 5 other players do worse than you. Spam playing different vehicles over and over will increase the chance of you finishing the mission.

You overestimate the ability of the bottom 5 players in every team.

Well done Wargaming,

Finally the smaller clan can get a bigger amount of bonds, through the Great Railway Heist. (175 per day)

Other wise they have to be content with the smaller trickle from random battles..

 

Again I wish Wargaming would cap all clans with their WN8 recruitment.

 

Smaller clans cannot compete with mega clans dominating the map and the seasons.

Smaller clans will never get the massive bonds that the top clans get, due to the fact that we cannot compete against all of their good/great players.

 

More bonds means only the top clans can increase their tanks beyond the normal research values (2.5% extra)

Smaller clans cannot compete against this bias.

 

Again thank you WOT for giving smaller clans I glimmer of hope.

I still think that regular epic medals should award more bonds.

I think there's a lot of this exploitation going on. Just watching what team mates do suggests they yolo in for a bit of damage and spam games for the reason you've described. I've just had 16 games and only 3 wins today, and a lot of that has to do with the immeasurable stupidity of team mates doing the most brain-dead things.  One of the last games I was on Airfield where I saw a Rhm-WT rush the heavy tank area and explode in one hit. That was the first minute of the game. 27k games and a 45% WR.

 

I've also seen players simply feeding enemy tanks. Another game on Airfield I saw a KV-1 try to take on an Excelsior, except he did it by moving right up, exposing the entire side of his vehicle to the enemy, and bounced every shot he fired. The next two tanks, being mediums, did exactly the same. I could go on with all the bad plays, but I'd just end up raging again just thinking of how excruciatingly bad these teams are.

I don't why anyone would roll the dice on a yolo when you can reliably carry and win T4 games in something like 3-5 minutes right now. Nothing but top-tier games and I am just roflstomping the [edited] out of teams in the Luchs and there's others out there with Lees, Hetzers, Pz38s etc. who can do pretty well (certainly will make top 10 each game, unless they're a complete muppet). Even the occasional loss still puts me in the top ten with the Luchs, because even just 1 clip is already something like 300 damage.

 

It's 100% sealclubbing, but it sure gets the bonds missions done quickly.

 

I'm also racking up plenty of incidental extra bonds for Top Gun/High Calibre/Pasucci's/Scout/Patrol Duty.

wn8 isn't a WG metric and they will never follow it
And an easy way to get around this cap is play like a tomato in low tiers and then play properly only in tier x. Or get a hold of 40%-er accounts..

Because they're muppets.

 

As it is I don't have any tier 4s crewed, and don't want to move any crew to them. Still trying to 2 mark my Leopard, so there's that. The maps I'm getting really don't help, but still managing to get closer. Currently sitting at 84.88%. Should've had it in one game on Lakeville according to MoE Extended, but it wasn't the case.

Sadly I don't own any tier 4s. But I have to admit something about shooting mindless players is rather tempting. Thankfully there's always tier 9...
