After this FrankenStein event some of us got grousers and some others got premium days. It isn't the first time the gifts are random for the missions..

 

Do you think it's fair?

I played just a few matches and finished three missions I never cared about, yielding two boxes with two premdays and a piece of equipment. So everyone gets a bit free stuff. I don't really see the problem.

For the lower tier rewards, I think it's fine that they're random. But for the lvl 3 and 4 crates, it would've been better if you were at least guaranteed to get something not completely useless... like cyclone filters. Literally who uses those? :mellow:

I'd like some free gold every now and then, but WG is too greedy to handout 300 gold per month for playing often. It's not that I can't afford gold, it's the nice of the gesture to award your active players. But russian greed is stronk.

I got improved suspension bits for tanks I don't own and am unlikely to ever buy and two premium days.  I also got two of my speed governors removed (surely that's a negative prize).

 

I don't see it as unfair, if you complete a few of the missions then the chances are you'll get a bit of everything.

Very funny to receive an artillery gun rammer when you never ever have wasted a single XP on artilleries.

I think some of you haven't understood. Yes, we all got some suspensions, and cyclones and so on, but some of us didn't get a single premium day while others got 2 or 3.

Oh... so it isn't fair because YOU didn't get as much as others from a gambling event. :rolleyes:

no, I don´t like the random rewards since they gave me mostly BS and 2 days PA, credits (which I dont need at all)

 

just dish out some unique camos (someone mentioned a pumpkin skin, I would most def grind that), slogans, pictures, symbols to put on the tanks etc. not stuff I can get anyways

 

make me WANNA play this, even if the missions are plain stupid rng clusterf´s

Fine for the smaller packs - makes it more tempting to play for even the daily missions - but for missions requiring some investment in time and/or luck I prefer to know what the reward will be. Makes it easier to determine if I'm better off grinding credits the "old-fashioned" way. 

 

It's obvious why it's like this. I can only remember the good rewards I got, not the ton of shitty ones.

The simple truth is that the rewards aren't worth it. If you only play the fun mode for rewards, you should probably rethink your strategy and start playing premium tanks. If you like the fun mode, then you get some random rewards for doing so.

That I don't doubt. Little reason to play it anyway. Shits and giggles, maybe, but that's what T3 is for. Other fun modes felt more 'deep' in a way, I played them despite no reward system (that I can remember, except crew training that is).

So for you it is fair because you got more than others... That says a lot from you.

 

The question is, why is it a gambling event?

Yes I love them, but only if there's a 0.2 chance in winning an Object 907 :trollface:

Otherwise not.

I used 1 hour of that premtime and would have gifted it to the first random stranger on my way.

I'm a horrible person, I know. 

 

You guys should realy stop taking the game so damn serious. There is a world behind the tank garage, you should take your ambitions to establish fairness and equality there. In the meantime, enjoy a fun event that will yield some free stuff. For everyone.

 It's meant to be a bit of light hearted fun. You must lead quite the disappointing existence if you feel the need to whine about someone in a computer game fun-mode getting a couple more virtual bonus points than you did.

I literally got only equipment I didn't realize was equipment because I had never mounted it on any tank before ever.

Torsion things and filter things... didn't see any of the good personal reserves just got junk ones.... I did get prem days but for me they were kind of moot because I don't think my prem has dropped even once in the past 3 or 4 years.

 

Honestly though I wasn't doing it for the caskets just the pumpkin thing I mistakenly taught could be used as a badge or a decal but it can't so gg.

 

TBH I think they were just trialing loot boxes.... as literally every game now seems to have loot boxes WG are just like yes yolo why the hell not.... expect to see more in future as rewards for ranked or purchasable from the prem store.
