tl;dr summary of Festive Atmosphere:

  • Get decorations from boxes. Small boxes come from completing missions; Large boxes come from buying from the web-shop.
  • Missions reset daily at midnight server time - some missions are one-offs though.
  • To maximise benefits u want to fill every slot with a level V decoratiion (total 15 slots) 

 

How to gain festive bonuses for randoms:

  • Max out festive atmosphere asap (Level 10)
  • Collect decorations and complete collections, there are 80 decorations per set (except Magic, which has 73 pieces)
    • The magic number to max bonus is 62 decorations or more - anything beyond 62 is just for collection's sake.

 

The (cheapskate) pay2win method to maxing out bonus:

  • Buy 25 boxes of the bonus type(s) you want most
    • New Year - Credits
    • Lunar - Combat Exp
    • Magic - Free Exp
    • Christmas - Crew Exp
  • Buy 11-14 boxes for the other bonus types you want.
  • Fit your xmas deco to max out festive atmosphere
  • Complete 1-3 days of  festive missions - you should now have 40% bonus for your main bonus and 20-30% for the other bonus types.
  • Shard everything that is not used in decoration.
  • Craft badges for the bonus type you want - this should push your bonus into 50%.

Addendum: What do you do if you own all the tanks already?

 

You sell them for profit of course. Below is a list of the most expensive tanks sorted by tier (tier 2- 7, 8-X does not net you any profit) Source

Tier 2: H35

Tier 3: Su-26

Tier 4: B1

Tier 5: O-I Exp

Tier 6: M4A3E2 Jumbo

Tier 7: O-Ni

The method I used to get max festive atmosphere was I bought 75 New year boxes.

 

Enough level 5s and others to covert to get it easily, plus I'm getting that 50% credit boost every game.

Couple that with clan boosters and personal reserves, and average games are massively profitable.

It's honestly easier to focus on one type when buying boxes as that way you're not wasting shards on duplicates as much.

25 should be enough to get max atmosphere (there are only 20 lvl 5 decos per set), anything beyond that is just lvl 4s and lower.

 

Instead of 75 for 1 type I would buy 2x 25 boxes and pretty much start 2 collections with full lvl 5 collected.

True, but then you have to waste time on shards tier 4 and below.

I'd prefer that 50% over 30%, but maybe that's just me.

25 for credits and 25 for xp would be a sensible choice too IMO.

To help with this for alternates you may have already researched:

 

Tier Vs 400K or over:

Grille (400K), Stug III Ausf G (422K), VK 30.01H (410K), SU-85 (414K), KV1-S (410K), M41 HMC (405K), Chaffee (405K), T67 (400K but currently on special), Wolverine (415K but also on special), T1 Heavy (435K), Chi-Nu (410K but currently on special), O-I Exp (445K), Type T-34 (430K), AT 2 (425K), Bishop (405K), S35 CA (403K), BDR G1B (400K), AMX 13 AM (410K)

 

Tier VI 930K or over:

Hummel (930K), VK 36.01H (935K), VK 28.01 (945K), SU-8 (932K), Hellcat (950K but currently on special), M4A3E8 (930.5K), M4A3E2 (975K), Chi-To (940K but currently on special), O-I (950K), Churchill GC (965K), AT 8 (940K), Firefly (945K), FV304 (930K), AMX 13 F3 AM (935K). Skoda T25 (930K), Ikv 65 II (933K)

 

Tier VII 1.4M or over:

IS (1.424M), S-51 (1.4M), M12 (1.4M), T71 CMCD (1.4M), T71 DA (1.4M), T29 (1.4503M), Chi-Ri (1.44M but currently on special), O-Ni (1.49M), T-34-2G FT (1.44M), T-34-1 (1.4M), IS-2 (1.45M). Black Prince (1.4M), AT 7 (1.4M), Crusader SP (1.44M), Lorraine 155 50 (1.42M), Konstrukta T-34/100 (1.43M), 45TP (1.45M), P.43 ter (1.44M), Ikv 90 B (1.42M but currently on special), Leo (1.41M)

 

So the question is does the Xmas discount stack (I don't expect it does but will check) as if so the best bargain would be to buy one on special and sell it after the special ends.

No, does not. Tested this last year with the Swede TDs. What happens is that you have 2 discounts in queue, so you can sell it and rebuy at a discount again.
