So WG, why are loot boxes 50% more expensive this year than last year?

I will not be buying any this year for a few reasons

1. The new IS3-A can only be won in loot boxes and even then you have to spend a ton of money to get it.

2. The fact that its NOT available in the shop for people that dont want to waste a ton of money gambling for it

3. The way WG has been putting out OP Perms is a joke

4. That WG dont care about its player base

To list a couple of reasons

    I still think it's morally wrong so in fact I'm right.

Awesome, I can tick that one off too.

 

FWIW, I bought an 11 box option and opened them last night. I suspected everyone was sick with worry not knowing so thought I better update.

5. loot boxes promote gambling, and a large population of Asian players are below the minimum age for gambling, essentially making it illegal. Well done WG'ng, for your contribution to the gambling problem and social responsibility. bloody reprobates you are !

This isn't gambling, if you want to surprise yourself you should buy these loot boxes. if you can't afford it then don't gamble trying ^_^

Boxes are good if you want some gold, premium days and decorations. Beyond that and it's your own fault if you are expecting anything.

The boxes gave me a bit of gold and a few other bits and pieces. Hard to get prem tanks when i have most of the ones on the list. Kinda gives me free reign to be a total [edited] if I just buy my own good behaviour bonds ;)

I really dont understand the hate for the lootboxes. No one is making you buy them.

FGO makes millions off loot boxes, and even though the rewards from WG are pretty good I dont see why the there is hate

The Great Overlords of Wargaming have bestowed me with the Title of Dark Meister of Tanks, The controller of RNG and MM

 

Thou must shout my name if you want favorable RNG and MM

It's because some are winning big, like the player who bought 9 boxes and won the IS3A, the T5 arty and both Obj 252's, whilst others have bought 200 boxes and only got the mundane everyday stuff and none of the T8 tanks.  I bought 150 boxes and got none of the special stuff, only the stuff I could buy at anytime, leaving me with a really bad taste in my mouth and am now looking for a new game to suck my wallet dry.

I have a feeling that last day of Advent will be IS-3A

 

And since boxes give more gold than normal buying, people will be buying lots of boxes


Noobs don't snipe because they are good at snipe; noobs snipe because they can't do anything else / People don't lose because they lemming; people lemming because they are losers

Do not confuse team strength with individual strength; a single enemy killed in a 1v3 is worth more than two enemies killed in a 4v2 / Lanchester's Square Law predicts in a 2v1, the side with 2 will end with 1.5 tanks remaining, so if you won with less than that remaining, you're actually noob, not pro

When you are not losing because you outnumber the enemy, your other flank is losing because they are outnumbered; it's just math

Law of mirror: When you are holding a 1v6 against the enemy, you own team is also getting 6v1 held by the enemy

Noob self-balancing theory: When you release a good tank, enough noobs will flood to play it, until the server stats become average again
