Hi,

 

I'm curious - WG announced bonds will be "made available from more sources" or some such very recently.

 

Is this an indicator that bonds will be purchasable for cash (even indirectly filtering game currencies)? I don't trust them enough to say "no it's not".

 

If yes, we will have players buying their way into Tier 10 not just 8, as the Bond shop will have a list of rare tanks that WG is going to sell again for bonds (FV215B etc).

 

Anyone able to confirm?

From what I heard, I think they are making old tier 10 tanks to do a come-back. Like the FV215B, Foch 155, and they are making them purchasable by bonds.

I don't think they are gonna make bonds available to be purchased by cash though, after all, it is quite a rare currency in the game, if they do that, everyone would be running around with enhanced equipment to make their tanks even better.

I do think however, they might make bonds available by playing more. Right now you only get bonds for playing tier 10 tanks and getting heroes' medals in lower tiers. I think they MIGHT make it like a few bonds given here and there after a game ends, that would be nice. Cause if you don't play tier 10 tanks, and rely on getting heroes' medals in the lower tier, that's quite an unreliable source of income for bonds.

I have no idea where you get your information from.

 

WG has said on multiple occasions that you won't be able to buy bonds from the premium shop.

Again though, it WOULD be nice for them to increase the amount of bonds available. As it is, most of the bond economy is dead - bond are simply too precious to be spent on most things you can buy with them, so most players just hoard them if they have any at all.

dont be so happy those tanks will cost 30000 bonds each 

In the moment when I truly understand my enemy, understand him well enough to defeat him, then in that very moment I also love him.

 

more than 400 new vehicles are still planned for World of Tanks

settle down.... it was a question. I expect forum members to go from 0 to critical without reading.... not the mods :P .

Certainly a question that is extremely valid at this time where the change is nearing yet not announced. Certainly a question worth asking and re-confirming given WG has a history of saying one thing about in-game items then doing the exact opposite.

CCs don't appear to know much.

 

WG said it was "unlikely" they would sell bonds for cash as the free to players salty tears would be too much for anyone to bear the cries of "it's pay to win"!.

 

However bonds have already been sold in a package on another server buy 7 days premium account, get 50 bonds with it, kinda deal.

Pretty lame really, as 50 bonds is a drop in the ocean of what you WILL need.

Lets give f2p more reasons to leave the game. I'll have more time to be on reddit while waiting for a battle.

Well bonds are given out for "free" currently to "pay to win players anyway".

Lets look at how bonds are best collected in the current game of a random battle, and discuss:

 

Firstly you want to play a tier 10 game, and I'm not sure on this fact, but I think your team has to win.

Secondly, if you are shooting gold ammunition, then you are more likely going to cause damage per hit to the enemy team, no?.

Thirdly, in order to be able to spam ze gold ammunition in a tier 10 battle, you might want to have a premium account active, no?.

Fourth(ly), if you mount extra large med kits, repair, and maybe take coffee or chocolate etc, and have 1-3 improved equipments like the CC you tube "reviewers" do, then you are even more likely to increase your teams chance to win, no?.

Fifth(ly), TIME. In a win a player might get 6-10 bonds or so, therefore to accrue a healthy bank account of bonds, any player is going to have to spend a lot of TIME in tier 10, spamming ze gold and covering all points 1-5.

 

Literally EVERYTHING mentioned above is "pay to win".

Conclusion: bonds and currencies in game are all "pay to win" anyway.

Result: seeing that those who "pay to win" are the people who actually PAY for the game to exist, and these players usually work J-O-B-S, perhaps these players SHOULD be able to purchase any items in the game with real money.

Indirect p2w is far far more palatable than some of the direct stuff like the broken prems they've thrown at us - primarily as it doesn't exclude anyone from the ability to compete. But knowing wg there's almost certainly a pay for bonds business case bubbling away somewhere just as I'm sure things like the is3a loot boxing were.

You can also collects some bond in lower tier -if- you got epic medals I think.

I remember getting around 1-2 amount of bonds in tier 8 or 6 after getting some fancy medals. 


Back to World of Tanks for now.

Yep.

 

But farming TX is still the most reliable way in pubbie games.

 

That said, the rewards are pretty pitiful even if you're farming hard. 5-15 bonds per match if you win doesn't mean much if everything meaningful you can buy is in the mid four-digits.

WG had said they would never sell the mutant ... oh wait they did .

WG said there would never be a Aus based server ... oh wait

And the list goes on . WG say they wont do ... then do it . If it involves a buck . You can bet your backside they will do it .


Sig number 6 gone . In Armageddon - Day 1.  Note the date .

You're a weird mob . I'd like to go quietly into the night . I understand Mods are here to stay . I understand Mission / SH / CW rigging is here to stay .

I'll not bother the forums with these things . Let me go in peace . Not sure though why I cannot try and get cheap gold if it's ok for others to do .

To be honest the type of player who seriously considers buying a TX tank with bonds as the way forward is hardly going to win with it.

 

Sounds like "PaTL TYAD" (Pay To Lose More Than You Already Do) and cop a lot of abuse from players unlucky enough to be on their side.
