"Having a hard time finding gifts? Don't worry: we're here to help by taking the pain and effort out of your holiday hustle. Check out our Holiday Ops 2018 website (only available for the duration of the event), if you want to do some good this festive season. It offers a selection of gift boxes with valuable in-game items to treat fellow tankers, friends, and even yourself. We stuffed them with all kinds of goodness from Premium consumables, emblems and inscriptions from a certain design collection (you choose!) through to Premium vehicles, including the Type 59, Lorraine 40t, Rheinmetall Skorpion G and Т26Е5." 

 

Although "Each box contains at least its value in Gold equivalent", it does feel like wargaming have stooped to a new low with adding the possibility of getting a type 59; encouraging some people to possibly overspend thinking the next crate will get them one of the rarest tanks in the game :/

It's not that great, the only good things about it are pref mm and decent Armour. Skorpion and defender will obliterate any type 59 with ease. Most prem tanks now are better than it, pref mm is the only real positive

It's loot box/gacha style.

When it was used for "crates" players can get from doing missions, it just pushes players to play more, but with money involved it's meant to bait players into spending more.

There's also the next step, kompu gacha.

It's random. You can watch QB break it down on this video below.

Kompu gacha is illegal in Japanese and Korean jurisdictions. This was covered last year when the decoration boxes were released.

 

WG's loot boxes are legal mostly because you get at least your money's worth of gold and stuff. Most of the time, you are getting stuff at a discount comparable to the major packages. What you are gambling for is the chance for the "rare" loot.

 

Personally, I find the addition of Type 59 distasteful, but that's because WG stated the type was meant to be a reward tank and not for sale. The rest of the tanks are actually in line with last year's holiday OPs (I netted myself a Skorp from the all-in decoration package as a nice holiday cheer). I definitely won't put it in the same ballpark as EA's loot boxes, which effectively metered your game progress with loot boxes.

Ok Senior Mods......I posted on the other thread about this so I don't know if it's now merged.

 

I was told that the drop rate for tanks had been reduced on SEA, especially the tier 8's, compared to other servers. Is this true?

How would anyone even know if the drop rates are reduced?

From what I've seen it seems like you could get tier 8 premiums in two boxes or a hundred, standard loot box/gacha RNG.

Why couldn't the patch be today, I am in desperate need of gold and credits. The type 59 is just a bonus if it happens.

Yeah mate but it would be nice to know if we are going to be milked for cash and at least get the same chance as everyone else!

Or.. you know, its gambling, and there are always winners and losers, and on day one most people bought boxes, and when more people buy boxes, it seems there are more winners because only winners brag about it. Now there are less people buying boxes so it looks like there are less winners so people think WG changed the chance of winning prizes, because they couldn't possibly lose when they gamble!
