(THE POLL WAS EDITED AT 2017/12/26 12:19 at japan time to include more number of chest purchases options)

 

Is it profitable buying the Xmas event chests for making gold instead of buying conventional gold bundles???

 

For those wanting to make gold but are undecided whether its worth it or not to purchase the current event's chests bundle that are avaible in the shop until late January, i have gathered some numbers that may not be statistically accurate or truth-telling numbers but are free from deviations and bias caused by small purchases or comunity contributor's status (for those more paranoid like me who take this in consideration)

 

I asked the question of whether or not its worth buying this bundle but i couldnt get an asnwer even after posting the same question in 4 different topics (of which 2 got merged into 1), so after asking this question in many topics and not getting the answer, finally I got the oportunity to find the answer thanks to a link provided by a forum member ( SiKiN). He told me about a stream of a player named stewiejp on Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/stewiejp ) that have openned nothing less than 225 chests!!! So i thought this was the perfect oportunity to investigate whether or not i am going to buy this chest, since i am very unluck on gambling stuffs, AND i realized i might not be the only one insecure here, and many people who are asking the same question would have the same trouble i had trying to find this info. 

 

So here in this thread i gathered some data, by watching stewiejp's stream and that i think might be useful for you bad luck player like me who feel insecure about gambling in those boxes. As most of us normal players dont have money to spend on 225 chests to find out how many tier 8 premiums or how much gold we can profit, i decided to take the privilege of using  stewiejp's stream information  as a reference to what kind of prizes you could get by openning your wallet (like a friend willing to pay all the drinks in the bar to make his friends happier) like stewiejp did!!

 

 

SO HERE ARE THE NUMBERS:

 

After watching StewiJP stream i came to the following numbers:

 

225 box openned, starting premium time: 786 days, 31291 gold, aprox 10 million credits. 

After about 11 tier 4s tanks rewarded he ended with: 927 days prem account time, 129941 gold, aprox 27 million credits.

 

1st 75 boxes profit: 44 premium days, aproximately 31500 gold, 5 million credits.

2nd 75 boxes profit: 38 prem days, aprox 33000 gold, 7 mil credits.

3rd 75 boxes profit: 59 prem days, 33750 gold, 5 mil credits.

 

Total premium days in the 3 packages openned: 141 days, Total gold: +98000, Total credits: 17 million (or 3 tier 10 vehicles).

 

Average income for each 75 chest pack openned: 47 premium days, 32733 gold*, 5.67 million credits.

 

Aprox money spent to buy 225 boxes  in US dollar: ($99USD per pack) about $300USD, aprox (gold only) value of the package: $395USD,

 

 

TOTAL PACKAGE VALUE (USD):

 

Creds: aprox $170USD ( or 400/1x17million credits = gold converted to cash)

Gold: aprox $395USD

Premium account: almost 5 packs of 30 days (141/30= 4.7) premium account for $10USD each: aprox $50USD

 

Total 225 chests package value: $615USD - $300USD (money spent) = profit of aprox $315USD**

 

-Average 75 chest package profit: $105USD*** or about 11000JPY (per pack, as quoted).

 

I may have miscalculated some thing or another thing here and there but these numbers arent mean to be perfect, they are superficial and my final numbers. Feel free to correct and help me on math classes.

 

*Taking in account the fact that he already had all the tier 4 premium tanks his average gold income per pack (75 chest) openned should be around 30000 gold.

** Taking in account currency flutuation values in SEA current market prices, using "XRATES" online currency calculator ($100USD for 11327JPY).

*** Profit per 75 chests bundle that cost around $99USD.

****I am using stewiejp's stream data without his consent, because i think twitch doesnt not prohibit sharing its content with the world and because i think stewiejp is not gonna get angry. And here is the source of the information I made my calculations based on https://www.twitch.tv/videos/211636701?t=02h55m00s​ (this link leads directly to the exact part of the stream where the chests openning begins)

 

 

MY CONCLUSION:

 

So is this profitable or not? well it seems to be a profitable way at least for those who already own all the tier 4 prems and wants to make some gold, but if you dont have it already, your average should be around 30k gold per 75 chests (if you buy only 75 chests, creds and prem time are not included, only raw gold earnings), if you buy 225 chests your average will be higher because you only need to get these tier 4 tanks ONCE which skew the average calculation by about 25% imo.

 

Also one big detail caught my attention, the fact that he bought a lot of chest and still didnt get any type 59 nor any premium tier 8 proves that the system is entirely based in RNG or luck, and its not designed to benefit or reward players who purchase a lot, I have heard people saying that they got 2 tier 8s premiums by buying only a small 11 chests pack, so my props to WG for keeping the system fair!!!

 

 

I hope this post dont break any forum rules****. Its hard to find this info so i hope its useful for someone else.

 

All the prices of packages and bundles I based my calculations on can be find in the world of tank portal shop link: https://asia.wargaming.net/shop/wot/main/?utm_source=global-nav&utm_medium=link&utm_campaign=wot-portal

 

Thx everyone for providing feedback and votes to help the wallet hitmans out there to keep their wallet safe!! And happy holidays!

I think and important question you missed is "Did you get any Tier VIII's ?"

 

Also, I voted that it was profitable because in a strict sense (cost of gold and prem time) it was.

From the WG announcement you will get at least the value in gold or its equivalent (premium time, credits, garage slots, inscriptions, etc) from purchasing a box, so in the strict sense everyone will get a profit and there is no gamble in that

Profit is probably the wrong word. Maybe value? As in you get more value than the base price.

the poll question "did you profit" is based on the fact that the gambling is completly random, so there is a small chance one would not get any profit at all in my humble opinion. since 75X250 gold ( 250 gold is the least value in gold in each chest) would be 18750, which is not profitable at all compared to the 25000 gold "raw" price chest or the "any amount of gold" purchase option avaible in the shop, although no one seem to have had such kind of bad luck, if the gambling is really random, and the least amount of gold is really 250, then its mathematically possible to earn only 18750 gold or less than 25000 gold, which would not be profitable at all. Hence i added this question "did you profit".

If you choose No for the tier VIII question, its still mandatory to answer the 1,2 or more than 2 question.

Maybe merge them into how many did you get? (0,1,2,2+) or just add a 0 option the count.

I sure got value for money. I got a Hype 59, 42 days of prem, a crap load of gold which i used some to buy a WZ-120-1 FT and S1 and about 5.5mil credits.

 

Its a shame they didnt come with decorations. Do we pay the same price as other servers because if we do, we are getting less than what they do for the same price which is just blatantly unfair. I hope its at a slight discount. :P

Hello.

 

>>I hope this post dont break any forum rules****. Its hard to find this info so i hope its useful for someone else.

 

Don't mind information in the forums, provided its correct and not misleading.

I don't have the bandwidth to proof your work fully.. but a few things didn't seem to add up, to me.

And using $'s is a little dangerous, as there is so many types of $'s, so if you could specify USD it might be clearer.

 

So here's some feedback.

 

1. Your credits calculations, 17 million credits is 170 USD, so basically correct if you are referring to USD

2. Your gold calculations are close enough.

3. 30 days premium is $10.89 USD not $14 so a little out here. So more like about $50 USD than $70

4. So the total value obtained is probably more like $610 USD instead of the $650 you listed.

 

And the main thing that caught my eye is the cost of the boxes, They are $99.99 USD with the discount on them. As per below photo
Not 126 like you calculated.

 

So for your example and figures. its more like..

Spent 3x 99.99 = $300 USD

Received $610 USD

yeah i included hype 59 in the polls because a lot of people seems to care about it, i personally checked its stats and found to be a very average tank with nothing special besides its armor, its gun depression sucks, its gun stats are also bad but but but having it seems to be a sign of manliness so i hope its not really because its not on the store so its rare, that would be really boring to me. 

 

So u got the value for the money and thats what everyone reading this poll and numbers wants to know, included me. The prices seems to be the same accross servers, i think WG should use shards system instead of the decoration system, that would be a way to trick the system and so other many reasons (ie since they already rewarded some people why dont they just keep the shard reward system already?)

Wow I just got a feedback from Tan!!

 

I fixed everything to adapt the values and currency flutuations that Tan quoted! I think the whole problem with my initial calculations (that were about 10% wrong from the right values) was based on the fact that i used currency translator instead of using nominal values that are provided on the shop portal. But now i fixed the values, at least my gold values and credits values were very aproximately correct enough, just the premium time value and the chests money spent values were about 10% incorrect. But i didnt intend to spread misinformation, i even quoted in the end of my post that the values werent 100% accurate but its fine i want things to be helpful and $10USD difference can be very misleading.

 

I also fixed my conclusion to lean my opinion in favor that buying these chest are actually quite profitable!

 

Thx!!!

Of course, equivalent in gold value per box as a minimum is also subjective. WG have calculated it on a straight per box cost per gold purchase. However it could easily be argued that people buying 75 crates at AUD125.99 the equivalent gold should be based on the permanent sales in the shop (at least for Asia region), such a the total gold equivalent of the Prosperity Chest 1 for the same price, ie 30% discount. That would change the maths significantly.


 

Not including premium time or the value of the actual tanks I got (but still including gold equivalents for when I already had the tank and got gold instead), I converted silver to gold, ie 400 to 1, and calculated total value of gold against the AUD125.99 price. Worked out to be a discount to standard gold price of about 48%, so pretty significant. But compared to the standard 30% discount you can permanently get in the Asia shop, it's an improvement of only 18%. Still not insignificant.


 

Bit once you add back in the value of the actual tanks won, premium time and garage slots, it's seems to be pretty good value. So if you have the cash now, seems a good opportunity to get your years purchases of gold.

It is worth it if you look at the things stand alone.

But it sucks when 100 usd in EU or NA gets you more than 100 usd in asia. Purchasing power parity epic fails.

yeah i included hype 59 in the polls because a lot of people seems to care about it, i personally checked its stats and found to be a very average tank with nothing special besides its armor, its gun depression sucks, its gun stats are also bad but but but having it seems to be a sign of manliness so i hope its not really because its not on the store so its rare, that would be really boring to me. 

 

So u got the value for the money and thats what everyone reading this poll and numbers wants to know, included me. The prices seems to be the same accross servers, i think WG should use shards system instead of the decoration system, that would be a way to trick the system and so other many reasons (ie since they already rewarded some people why dont they just keep the shard reward system already?)

Agreed. We are not getting the same value as other servers for the same amount of money.

 

This should be corrected in some form. 

Maybe a stand-alone topic.

What I find amusing, is WG have added RNG to real money purchases now. :thinking:
