@Righteous_End: 

 

If you have proof of intent then by all means good luck to you. 

 

From what I have seen so far tho it appears to be just sloppy internal business processes on the part of WG. If sloppyness or stupidity were crimes we would all be in jail.

 

You may have more success in following this up under consumer protection laws rather than the Crimes Act.

I'm feeling a tad ripped off.

75 boxes and no tier VIII's.

From reports from EU and NA it seems like most purchases of 75 boxes got you a couple of them.

Thats the only reason I purchased them.

Admittedly I did get more in gold than I spent and over a months prem time, but since I hardly ever use gold its pretty well wasted :(

I've got Type 59 from boxes (i bought 50 and it was 38/50), but still feel deceived by WG without decorations :(

 

Given the time you posted you probably qualify for the 1160 shards compensation - use those to create the decorations. Sadly, boxes bought after 22nd Dec do not get any decos nor shards.

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.

 

  

What you just committed is libel. You are lucky you are such a small fry that WG is unlikely to sue you, but still pretty silly overall to expose yourself to liability like that for someone threatening legal action.

 

From your worldview I qualify as Asian. I also read, write and speak English at a higher level than you, so please keep your disgusting racism within your household and don't defile this forum with it.

Not to rub salt in your wound, here's my 75 unboxing. From anecdotal evidence I think the tier 8 chance is about 1% or so.

Just skipped through it, did you get anything besides the T26-E5?

 

Personally I wanted the Lorr T40 and Skorp for crew training (Lorr preferred).

 

With that in mind think I will blow some of that gold on a CDC and and Steyr WT even though their crew layouts are not ideal.
Might pick up a Pudel or perhaps a T26E4

Yep - did the 75 boxes, and no Tier VIII's sadly.

Got 2 x Tier IV's, (garage slots!), about 28K in gold, 8mil in credits and about 12 days in Prem time.

So more overall value for what i paid than if i bought them through the Prem Shop.

quite similar to me.

2 x Tier IV (well 3 I think as I got 3 garage slots but gold compo as I must have had the third already)

27k in gold

only 4 mil in credits, but 33 days prem.

 

I purchased the traditional xmas bundle.

What did others buy?

The T26E5 (last box!)

6 tier 4 prems

couple of holiday inscriptions and 1 party hat emblem.

Never counted the credits and gold and prem time.

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.

 

type

Current all time vehicle amount for the Type 59.

 

I don't have the numbers for T26E5 and Lorr. 40t for last week but I do have one for 2 weeks ago:
T26E5:
2 weeks ago 6116

Currently 6458

 

Lorr. 40t:

2 weeks ago 9571

Currently 10258

 

These numbers are taken from wot-news, they aren't official statistics so they are possibly inaccurate also the availability of the vehicles should be taken into consideration, T26E5 is always on the premium shop, Lorr. 40t is sold every now and again while Type 59 is unavailable for purchase.

Lorraine has also been in the prem shop for the last week as well.

The only tanks ill buy for now is Defender, 907, awfulpz and maybe 260. Imagine a load of $$ WG would make with those.

Assuming the numbers are accurate and the rate of drops for Type 59 is 1%, the number of boxes sold should be around 177500 which means WG has profited about US$230000 - US$350000 over two weeks. This is all just speculation, of course.

Gacha/loot box systems are designed to attract whales and from what I've seen in streams, youtube videos, forums and other communities, there are plenty of whales in WoT.

Chinese server sells the 907 but it seems like they're not doing a loot box for Christmas.

They can't iirc, similar laws in Chinese on gambling because they have a serious internet addiction issue as well. Not to mention that literally everything is on sale in the prem shop.

They could, they just have to follow:

Chinese gacha

 2.6 ...Online game publishers shall promptly publicly announce information about the name, property, content, quantity, and draw/forge probability of all virtual items and services that can be drawn/forge on the official website or a dedicated draw probability webpage of the game. The information on draw probability shall be true and effective.

2.7 Online game publishers shall publicly announce the random draw results by customers on notable places of official website or in game, and keep record for government inquiry. The record must be kept for more than 90 days. When publishing the random draw results, some measures should be taken place to protect user privacy.

 

I was hoping to see the probabilities for our boxes if the Chinese server were doing it too but I guess it's easier to just not do it, kind of strange considering the holiday ops video says that the developers worked with the Chinese partners to develop the Chinese decorations.

 

 

Numbers for this week:
Type 59 9840

Lorr. 40t 11983

T26E5 7705
