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!

Probably, its good if they dont change it then. Still gonna buy it even if they do, its a very generous gambling system, and you almost cant lose. I dont really have much interest on those T8 prem prize, gunning for high value gold/credit return.

​I asked because I was told that it had deliberately been reduced, not seemed, but actually done.  If your reason is correct then great np with that. If they have reduced it however that is a different story. PS GJ WG release a tank I don't actually have the night before we find out the cost of the boxes lol

Who would know that it had been reduced? The gift boxes aren't even being sold yet.

​NA and EU have both had them released. All I was saying was that I had been told they had been reduced in the amount of certain components that were in the other 2 servers boxes and wanted clarification that a: the guy was blowing smoke, or b: we were getting shafted again.

Also, there was a complaint about NA getting them cheaper than EU so I hope they don't try and gouge too much.

We know they removed the decorations from SEA that NA and EU got don't we? There are others reporting zero tier 8's in 75 boxes, seems a bit odd considering the unboxing vids for NA and EU seemed to do "cough, cough" very well.

t59

This is the number of vehicles(all time) from wot-news for the Type 59, I'm not sure how accurate the data is but this should be in the ballpark.

The data for this will be updated next Thursday and we'll see roughly how many new Type 59s people get from gift boxes.

war gaming are nothing more than scamming thieves.. What I got did not even cover the amount paied. They used Youtubers

to premote you getting so much stuff, but I'm more than pissed that I did not even get what I paid worth back.

Also we did not get the decorations in it like other countires so their are a number of us going to report SEA wargaming for their

dishonesty.

 

I'm also pissed that support don't know enough enlish to understand your complaints. Their response was nothing to do with

my complaint. We need Australian support guys not Asians who don't know the language and there-for don't/can't understand

what has been written in a complaint.

Anyone here who got screwed by wargaming with this event please be aware there is real proof that what wargaming has done is illegal.

When they first started selling the boxes they still had on their site that you get the same as Russia, EU and USA. They only later

changed on their site to tell the truth. This is called "Dishonestly Gaining a financial advantage" in Australian Legal terms.

I for one will not sit on my hand when I have all the evidence of this dishonesty and others I know are taking action too.

 

they have broken Ausatralian law and we don't need to stand for this. Please be aware of this fact and do something about it.

 

Section 82 of the Crimes Act 1958.

The defendant engaged in a deception, He or she did so dishonestly; and as a result of the deception the defendant obtained financial advantage for themselves or another person.

@Righteous_End: 

Most crimes require proof that the act was done (actus reus) and that it was done intentionally (mens rea).

 

The key phrase in the statute you quoted is "He or she did so dishonestly". If it is a simple mistake that was corrected as soon as practicable after WG Asia became aware of it then there is no dishonest intent so there is no crime.

We have the proof of what was offered when we purchased the Crates and what they LATER put up to try cover their [edited].. You just need to look on the net to find even more proof

as there are other gamers putting the same proof up for all to see.. Wargaming know they screwed up and we the gamers need to do something about it because if we don't

they will feel like they can do whatever they want.

 

We have the proof,.  also when they did change the site they tried to steer gamers away from it so they would not read it... This is Dishonest of them and they need to know we will not stand for it!

 

I have already written the ACCC with my proof and some links to the net where others are showing the same thing...
