 I have some Chinese tanks (only up to tier V though) and have tried every which-way to find/apply the wild Chinese camo.  Does anyone know if there is a trick to it?

Justed moused over the camo, besides being nation locked it says its only applicable to tiers 6,8,9,10.

Funny it skips tier 7...

 

Note: You can only see the camo if its allowed on the tank you have selected at the time.

Thanks Vader108, very much appreciated!

 

WG should point this sort of thing out though up front, rather than let their players be confused and disappointed.  Or better still, let us see what camo we have so there's an incentive for us to try to attain the tank/s needed.

I got to Level 10 last night (I caved and bought one 3 pack of boxes and finished of by crafting the last required level 5).. Anywho my 2018 albums are now unlocked. Crafted a few more random level 5 decos last night ( yes it took me a while to realise I would be better off crafting lower level ones to boost my bonuses once I had reached lvl 10). I am still well under 50% of the total Lvl items so I was a bit miffed when three out of three ended up as duplicates but well these things happen.

 

First up this morning (clearly not enough sleep as i am still going for lvl 5's) I had another go. Got a level 5 tree topper, Santa's hat!. Hmm okay I don't think that one is a duplicate, lets go check the Christmas collection, hmm no Santa hat. Well that seemed like the logical collection but I guess not, lets check which one it belongs in. Hmm, not in any collections.

 

After a bit of head scratching I thought to check the 2018 collections. Lo and behold there is my new Santa's hat in last years Christmas collection. I just paid 480 shards to craft something I could have got directly for 240!!!!! Is this intended WG? Is it a deliberate inclusion to punish people to stupid to stop crafting level 5 items after they have reached Level 10 festive rank and force them to actually go and think about how the bonuses work? If so then well done, lesson learned.

Yes, once the UI for the event disappears, you can no longer select which tanks you can apply the discount on. So I suggest picking the tanks by the end of the event. 

You can pick unresearched tanks so you can plan ahead a little. 

 

how about the female crew?

If you own an Object 252u and snag a Defender in your loot box it isn't converted to gold - so you get to own two of the same premium and can only sell it for credits. I haven't tried trading... maybe that's an option to get more out of it but it's disappointing it wasn't a gold conversion as that means more to me at this point than the Defender skin.

Quick question. Bonus level jumps up from 30% to 40% when you hit 39/80. How many items do you need to jump to the 50% bonus? Is it the full set or something less?

It should show you somewhere in the collection books. Think there's an info icon next to the bonus. Not in game atm so can't check.

Ah right, didn't even notice that little i hiding there in plain sight. Needs 62 to get the full 50% bonus. Thank thee good Sir.

Where do I get a description of the bonuses?

 

Ive read about the rewards for the levels and such; the bonuses are only for completing milestones in the 2019 tree and not 2018 yes? 

 

I'm level 10 but didn't realise that their was more to be gained beyond the camo reward for filling out more of the decoration book :)

Just open the 2019 album mate . Top center of page tells you what it is . So say  "Magic New Year  ". Hover over the "  to free experience in battle " and it will give you a guide on where you are what it gives you .

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 .

Cheers :).

 

Turns out I bought loot chests for the Free XP bonus ….. oops. I'd have taken the combat XP bonus for sure had I known!  I've got it to 40% now from playing but having that at 50% from early on would have been nice :D .

 

I've noticed the 2018 missing decorations can be purchased cheap with no random crafting required. I've never been a fashionista so I might just get into the routine of being a year behind filling out the decoration books :medal:. It's a heck of a lot more friendly on the shard collection than the 2019 book!

 

Incidentally - if anyone trolling here has not accessed the WOT bonuses for signing up to Twitch Prime (free trial) make sure you do - great skins and an excellent 4 skill female crew member (the first that has a specific date to be allocated to a vehicle I believe).

So, we are now on the last stretch for the Holiday Ops, 5 more days of collecting and crafting to go.

How are you all doing? (I am referring to all those who did not buy boxes.....yet).


 

I just did a check of my inventories:

NY: 66/80 (missing 11Vs, 3 IVs)

CNY: 67/80 (missing 7 Vs, 5 IVs, 1 IIIs)

Magic: 58/73 (missing 10 Vs, 5 IVs)

Xmas: 64/80 (missing 10 Vs, 4 IVs, 1 IIIs)

Shards bank: 5270 shards

décor on tree: 15xVs (3750 shards)


 

I would assume I will be able to get say another 5 Vs and something like another 10,000 shards over the last few days.


 

Looks like I could probably craft out the CNY set (about 12,000 shards required), might need to buy 1 box (x11s) or 2 (x3s) if I want to complete a 2nd set.

bought another 25 boxes today coz i needed 13 tier V decos to complete magic album, completed the album and got left some 21k shards to try to complete christmas album that was missing 11 tier V decos. Guess what happened???

 

no kidding, 6 times, SIX TIMES repeated tier 5 decoration IN A ROW when using the decoration making machine... Then to avoid getting a repeated deco again for the seventh time, i stopped right there, took a little breath of fresh air, and tried creating a different decoration, for other slot on the christmas album deco tree. Repeated another 3 or 4 times, but managed to complete tier 5 decos of christmas tree, but then i was out of shards to complete 3 missing tier 4 decos in that same christmas album.... Now i will have to destroy my tree to get the remaining missing decos... NOT VERY LUCKY UH?!?!??!

 

not exactly....because in that same 25 boxes pack that i bought, i also got an IS3-A in the 11th or 10th box (my first russian heavy above tier 5 i think, dont have any non premium russian HT tho)

 

I also got:

 

 -the style for the t57 heavy that i wanted coz i fortunatly already have that tank...

 

 -10k gold (not very lucky here) 1 million credits, 20 days premium....

 

Except for the IS3-A, it was all very bad boxes with poor little gold in it!!!! only 250 gold every box with 1 day premium!!!! didnt like it!!! The is3A also couldnt make me happy since i wasnt really looking for it, i wanted only the gold!!! 

 

but okay and i am kinda satisfied for what i paid for (i guess i dont have choice, will have to take it...)

 

Better something small than an empty hand!!!

 

this is what i got for this holiday event total 100 boxes that i bought (75+25 boxes)

 

thx and good day.

Hey when do we need to claim our rewards by for this event? Are the tank skins (the fireworks, present, tempered glass and christmas tree ones) permanently there until i put them on a tank? and also with the crew members, do I need to assign them to a tank before the end of the event or I lose them? and same as the silver discount on the tanks? needs to be done before end of event which is tomorrow?

Crew are in your barracks as 'recruits' last forever.

Camos sit there until you put them on something, you can move them even once they are on something.

Percentage discounts seem to have no expiry but you have to have claimed them and allocated which tank you will use them on before the event end.

So before I strip my tree and break the decorations is there anything I need to do? Man I am going to miss those boosts.
