Bonds for Cash! (or at least a chance to get them for cash)

Well, folks, it’s official: Wargaming has hit rock bottom. They’ve in effect now turn buying premium time into loot boxes.

In an unadvertised special so as to prevent people from seeing it as the blatant money grab that it is, Wargaming has decided to hide gifts inside of any purchase of premium time.

Now, here comes the payoff: It’s random. They’ve made it out just like loot boxes that are quickly becoming illegal in more and more places and are now under investigation by the FCC here in the States.

So you really have no idea what you’re going to get until you get it. So not only is it a roulette wheel, it’s a roulette wheel you have to pay real life money to play. (FYI: that’s fucking illegal.)

So what do you stand to get? Well, this:

Pay to win loot box premium purchase.

How ’bout that shit, folks? So now each time you buy premium, you stand a chance at winning different shit. Also, apparently, the bigger block of premium you buy, the more shit you get and better chance of getting bonds you get.

So in other words, the more you spend, the more you win. Pay-to-win at its level best!

Now, since you can get bonds for free if you have no life and play the game ’round the fucking clock, what’s the big deal, right? I mean, shit, I was given some free bonds just for logging back in once. (Not that I gave a fuck as I just logged in to see if I got my T50-2 back they stole from my ass years ago. I did. I sold the fucking thing, gave the screen the finger and logged back out.)

The point is that once again the wallet warrior wins. Why bother playing? All you have to do is buy block after block of one week premium time and you can very quickly rack up enough bonds to outfit every tank you’ve got with over the top fucking OP equipment.

The only really funny thing about this shit is that once again it shows what an epic fucking liar Ph3lan is.

You do remember Ph3lan, don’t you?

His real name is Zolt├ín Sipos. He’s the same asshole that hit Sir Foch with the copyright strike, and then swore to all concerned that he didn’t do it without realizing Sir Foch had screen shot the entire fucking thing proving he was a complete fucking liar.

Well, guess what, folks? He did it again. Here he is back in March of this year swearing in bold text no less that they would NEVER sell bonds for money:

Ph3lan lies AGAIN!

Yeah. We quoted you asshole. You lied. Yet again.

You know, I wouldn’t really mind so much if they weren’t such fucking liars. If they just came out and said, “We’re selling ’em for money, folks!” I could at least say, “Well…that fucking figures” and move on.

But this entire thing is an under-the-radar, plausible deniability, loot box money grab with bonds as the clear bait in it all. It’s fucking pathetic. Almost as pathetic as the assholes defending it…and we all know who those people are.

    Man I bought a $12 gold package last night with a day of premium and previous I only had 4802 bonds but when I logged on this morning I have 5302 bonds. Im not sure where they came from. Leave it to WG again. Off topic abit but have any of you been on the forums lately? I swear the shills are out in full force.

    I haven’t, but I’m getting absolutely bombarded by people who have. From what they’re sending me, it’s gone full blown shit show.

    The final gasps? Or will that be heralded with the return of the Type 59 to the shop in the end?

  4. Gomez_Adams says:

    They’ve been having final gasps for three years now. I think they’ll keep things like this going for at least another year before they finally pull the plug on the NA servers and either migrate them all to EU or some other server.

    Sounds like they are sending their “Shill Sqauds” out like enforcers to silence, and beat down or use disinformation tactics ( that their famous for ) and to quash those point their BS money grabbing highway robbery schemes. And they try to pull some during the holidays for sure. Their not above banning people during the holidays, and worse.

  6. Insurrectional_Leftist says:

    Oh, and by the way? I wonder what Sir Foch thinks about all of this stuff now and the big LIE that Ph3lan told last time vs. what they are doing now on this matter. Simply incredible the magnitude of the Wargaming lies! They will threaten illegitimate copyright strikes on people like Sir Foch, then turn around and do this level of lying.

    Diggin’ the new avatar, Leftist. It suits you dude!

    But yeah. More shill shit. As long as it’s pro Wargaming they don’t give a fuck anymore. At all. By the way, all the lagging is being caused by the sheer size of the new upcoming GeorgePreddy article. WordPress was never intended to do an article this fucking huge. It’ll probably be tomorrow before it gets posted.
