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.

 

I didn't even get a single tier 8 or 7 premium tank from my 72 boxes. Not even a gold refund for the Defender. You are lucky.

 

Though I did finish my 2019 and 2018 collections with tons of shards leftover.

Thanks WG.

It was fun, and it was very worth it.

I got a lot of grinding done over the last few weeks, bought a lot of stuff with the extra credits and discounts.


 

However, 2019 collections are a bit tough to complete through drop boxes alone, but I guess that was the plan all along.

I did not manage to complete any sets at all, had to buy 17 (11+6)boxes to complete 2 sets..... decided to leave the other 2 sets (60/73 and 68/80) for next year..lol.

I decided to buy boxes not so much because I wanted to complete the sets but I needed gold to retrain/reskill my tier X crews for upcoming CW.


 

But of those 14 boxes I bought, I can say that the 'loot' was probably better than if you were to spend the same amount on discounted gold packages. Maybe I was lucky (or not?!!).

I got about 5k plus gold, maybe 2 mil plus silver, 7 days prem time and a T57 skin. Not too shabby for about 43 sgd spent. no prem tanks tho :(

:( better lucky next year bro! at least you can use your gold to buy some tech tree premium tank.

 

i would recommend panther m10, very good crew trainer, a total game wrecking machine with pref mm. Easy wins in that tank. I sealed clubbed so hard on it that i "accidentaly" became the top of the rank on it on the general parameters of "since 2014" and "+500 battles"

You should get a message in your session messages about 'unclaimed rewards' that has a link to where you can claim it.

4. Why not swap the Chrysler K? We've been able to swap Skorps, 13 57s, 41 90s. I don't understand why the Chrysler is an exception. They have even been able to swap Chryslers on other servers just not on ASIA. I'm willing to spend credits/Gold to tank barbie my Chrysler if someone swaps it. It costs WG nothing but you might get some revenue out of doing it.

If I had spent that much for no decent tuer 8 reward I would feel angry and quit playing the game.

The reward is the gold and prem time. And you got a lot more gold than you would have otherwise got for your money.

 

The tanks are just a bonus.

On the contrary, those who spend heaps on boxes in hopes of getting a tank are exactly the types of players wg is changing the game to cater to.

i'm getting this message in the in-game notification center each time i start the game:

 

"You have some unused rewards. Do not forget to activate them before the release of Update 1.4! ['To Rewards' button]"

 

it makes me wonder what "unused" means exactly.

 

i earned the four lady crew members. one has since been assigned to a nation/type/vehicle/qualification, the other three are listed as recruits in the barracks dialog. as the "holiday ops 2019" video (https://worldoftanks.asia/en/holiday-ops/) says (at 2:01), "there is no time limit for recruiting them" i am of the belief that i shall have them there until i figure out where to place each of them.

 

all the vehicle discounts, i have assigned to specific vehicles. the lower tiers i have bought and promptly sold (for a profit of 343,600 silver). the tier viii i have bought and is now on my "playlist". i am still grinding toward the tier vii, ix, and x vehicles to which i assigned the discounts, thus haven't purchased them. again, the holiday ops 2019 video says (at 1:42), "the discounts will be active until you purchase the selected vehicles". going by how the discounts i earned in the previous holiday ops ('18) persisted until i used them in june (tier ix) and december (tier x) last year, i tend to think that the discounts shall remain beyond the coming of update 1.4.

i get somewhat alarmed by the notification above. exactly, what (else) do i stand to "lose" when update 1.4 comes?

I had it, played it for 100% WR, and decided to drop it while it's still on top lol. Only tech trees I don't have are the tier 8's.

 

Maybe the 2020 collection would sell the Lorraine 40t and EVEN 90 again for gold. If not, more premium time I guess.

Fortunately, six years of understanding luck, chance, and probability in a 25%-RNG video game has given me discernment of how these boxes work. I did get the worth of my purchase in raw gold....or maybe it was diluted by credits?

 

Or could've gotten a better deal buying the raw gold and/or premium time in bulk during discounts? I'm not sure with that, though from what I hear the boxes is the most cost-effective way to buy raw gold, second only to WoWS being the most cost-effective way to buy prem time (for WoT).

Aside from the six weeks of prep time, and much gold, I wound up with three of the four Tier X 3D camos (missed out in the IS 7), and the M4 "Improved," Turán III, KV-220-2, and Defender.

 

While I'm a little disappointed I didn't get the E-25 or the broken IS-3, I am certainly in no position to complain. Now I have to see if I can find it within myself to overcome my bias, and play US HTs just so I can use that fancy camo.

 

Edit: I also seem to have picked up a Panzer II Ausf. D somewhere, but have no idea where that came from.

Gold is never on a straight sale (i.e. the only thing being purchased is gold) anymore though. In fact I'm no sure I've ever seen gold go on sale in the four years I've been playing.

Maybe I was just lucky. I picked the New Years boxes (x75) and picked up the e25, IS3a, plus a few shit tanks and camo for IS7, Grille and batchat. Was hoping for the Lefe too, but not a bad result.

spent about 72 box on early and mid event, the best I could got was E-25. Only at the last day of Festive, on Monday morning, decided to gamble for last time with 25 box , and finally got T8 IS-3A.

 

Wow. almost 100 box, and only T8 and ofc couple worthless T5 prem that no one cares except leFH, at the same time, there were people that spent 11 boxes and got 3 T8. There goes my biggest WoT spending ever, 164$ of my precious Christmas bonus. :confused:

I bought around the $80 marks worth of boxes in total over the entire period. All together I got every skin, every tier 5 tank, IS3A, Defender, had the Skorp G so got gold instead, EXCEPT the E-25.

The only reason I bought loot boxes was for a chance at the E-25.

It was the only tank I was interested in and want.
