Hello,

 

Recently due to British Light Cruisers being added to World of Warships, I started playing it again more frequently...What I did see thought it has a lot of nice features for the player one of the new ones is Crates....

 

You can get 3 crates per day by getting a x amount of exp...and in these crates are credits\flags\consumables and there is a try your luck to potentially get a premium ship as a top reward.

 

What I would like to know is if WG are looking at bringing a version of this to WoT. I know we have personal missions but they can be map\team dependent...whilst getting exp is just how well you manage to do in that current game.

 

Thanks,

It would be nice. But they stated, from start, that WoWs economy/playstyle(yes I know, ships...)/rewards/shenanigans of all sorts will always have a department of its own.

 

Which is kinda sad because they seem to know what they're doing... :/

It's probably like the difference between WoT EU and NA. Gotta keep the smaller player base happy.

I'm not salty over it, it's just the way it is. We are our own worst enemy's on EU as we spend a lot of money anyway (myself very much included)
It's just business.

 

 

Edit: 

Don't get me wrong, I'd love tons of freebies, but I'm also a realist.

Admittedly I'm pretty bad for it buying bundles even though I shouldn't...but I've done that on ships as well.

 

Like if the Type 59 ever appeared in the Xmas calendar I'd be all over it...partly due to missing it when I was just starting...I thought I'm not paying for a tank when I'm not even at tier 8 yet.

I think he was just using that as an example.

 

Type 59 will never be sold again, most folks should be able to understand that without too much difficulty. 

How could you sell a tank again that you've been keeping super exclusive for competitions and rewards. ... lol

Yes it was just an example, I doubt I'd be the only one to jump at the chance of buying it....but that will likely never happen.

 

Anyway back to the topic, of crates it'd be great having the change to get some extra credits or some reserves....I wouldn't expect them to put prem tanks in even if there was a lucky option.

 

But as mentioned above about the economical differences....I agree. If it was to be brought across it'd be completely different it'd require less exp as you get less compared to WoWs and that would replicate to the rewards would also be less. so you could get 25 - 50k credits and if you're lucky get like 500k.

Yes, I'd be at the front of the line with you to buy a type 59 if it ever happened haha. 

 

Perhaps in the future as the game/player base slows down this type of system might come into play.

Well, here at WoT we had several event months during which nearly everyone could get up to 30 gold per day. WoWs so far has/had no doubloons event. Let them have their crates, we had gold here.

We usually get missions for consumables, equipment or personal reserves rather often. WOWS don't do that for some reason and have daily missions for credits and the occasional anime premium ship. Not flags, consumables or premium time etc. Nor do they have the chain of missions that rewards a premium tank in the end, like our T-55A missions etc with tons of crew, silver, premium time and free xp rewards before that. 

 

So thus I feel it was a nice addition tho those that play it since it lacks.. other rewards like WOT has in general.
