Will the gamble boxes have decorations this year or are we going to have a repeat of last year?

Sig number 6 gone . In Armageddon - Day 1.  Note the date .

You're a weird mob . I'd like to go quietly into the night . I understand Mods are here to stay . I understand Mission / SH / CW rigging is here to stay .

I'll not bother the forums with these things . Let me go in peace . Not sure though why I cannot try and get cheap gold if it's ok for others to do .

And those boxes are better than what we had last year. Trying to build a full set purely from shards last year was still quite a gamble.

Now the only question I have is: where should I put those crew?

I had originally intended to have 3 of them man... woman(?)... the French autoloading mediums, but I was counting on the Christmas crew to be generic female crew. This one comes as a set, and I'd rather not split the set. Maybe stick them in another Russian medium line? Maybe go for the British heavies, despite how painful they are (and skip the Churchill I entirely)?

I added a link to the information for the loot boxes.

No, it's not a repeat of last year.

I'd say it's a bit of a good problem to have with crews. :)

I got shafted last year by RNG on the gambling boxes. I didn't get a single Christmas skin. I learnt my lesson and no way am I spending money again.

 

Loot boxes will be a thing of the past in any case. Countries gambling regulators have cottoned on to gaming companies pushing gambling on kids and have begun to regulate the industry.

If you read the news release these are not gambling boxes, unless you count the bonus stuff (rare tanks, 3D skins) as "gambling". If you want all 4 holiday styles, you will be able to buy your way to all 4 styles this year, and to even complete last years' as well.

 

Don't get me wrong, I don't blame ANYONE for not buying loot boxes, but these are not like last year's where you just ended up boned.

I just assumed that we were going to get boned. They lost my good will last year. I might have to read the release to see what it takes to pick up last year's camo.  If it's not onerous I might do it, otherwise I wont bother playing much at all.

Basically when you buy a loot box, it comes with one of any of the highest-level decorations you're missing. If you have a full set of lvl 5 decos, then the boxes will proceed to give you one of any lvl 4 decos you don't have, and so on.

 

If you have a complete set of every deco in the game, then the boxes will start giving out random duplicate decos. However, if you have a complete set of decos, you can choose to re-open last year's deco book, at which point I think the deco boxes will again give you a random high-level deco you don't have.

Of course the fact that they've hid all the tanks people really have been wanting behind the loot boxes - with a minuscule chance of obtaining one - doesn't count as a form of gambling...everyone will just be buying the gambling loot boxes not because of a chance at a rare tank, but purely for the decorations. Those rare tanks act as no incentive at all to keep buying boxes and rolling the dice...of course not. That would be gambling.

I remember the 4 female crew from last year, we initially got 4. Then we got a bonus 5th female crew member, any chance of that happening again Conan ???

I did very very well with the special tanks from my loot boxes last year (one was the type 59) and for very little $$ outlay, it was just the luck of the draw then. For 2019 I understand the system is fairer for players. It does clearly state for this year that your rewards in the loot boxes will be worth more than the money in gold that you pay for them.

In another thread it was revealed that there's a crew icon for a santa tanker. No idea if he'll actually turns out to be crew or something else, but the icon's in there.

Well not for me anyway. I'm low on gold so I can justify getting them on that basis. In any case I already have the couple of tanks in those boxes that I want... other than the Lefhfhfhfhfh, but even then I still wouldn't buy a single box just for a chance at one.

Maybe we can change all their names as the year moves on.
