Its a lucky dip you could buy one box or 25 boxes there is no guarantee what you will get.

No chance of getting  a Scorpion in the boxes this year. http://wiki.wargamin...n/Tank:A101_M56

You might get lucky and get a Skorpion instead though: http://wiki.wargamin...metall_Skorpian


Also, type of box doesn't matter afaik. All can give the same type of rewards except for the decorations.

I got one as well as a Lorraine but as far as I am aware, makes no difference which type of box you buy. Got both the skorpion and Lorraine from traditional boxes though if you’re interested

if you are not after T59 OR you dont intend to get the same value of gold as you would spend on boxes then DO NOT GAMBLE.


giftboxes are good way to buy gold and that should be your PRIMARY goal when buying them, counting on luck to draw that one specific tank out of that lottery is not a good idea you might get all of the prem tank rewards or you can get none its a coin toss and up to random numbergenerator.


what i used them for is to set myself with gold enough for probably more than a year by buying twice the 25 box ( i wasnt willing to go one level up to 75 box one even if its a better "vallue" ) and what i got out of it was +- 4 mil credits, 29k gold, Sentinel, B2, and Type 59 so in all i got 29k gold with about 15% discount and on top of that i got 2 low level prems and Type as a BONUS but they are in no way a guarantee and if i didnt have all other T8 prems i have a feeling i would have got any other than T59 :)


PS: wasnt it in last QnA on TaP where WG dev swore that WG will never ever sell T59 as long as he has any control over it ? :trollface:

AFAIK the tank drops are completely random. The only thing the box choice affects is what kind of decoration you get.

Sell ? Serb's not selling the type 59 now, he;s selling you a box with 3 random decorations and a bonus gift - which may in 1/1000 cases be a Type 59... so no sell, no foul

Colonel Flagg: Alert the Navy for offshore artillery. I want a squadron of copters for air-to-ground search and, uh, round up a box of scorpions. About a dozen.

Radar: You mean, uh, scorpions scorpions?

Colonel Flagg: Big ones.

Hawkeye: What the hell are you gonna do with a box of scorpions?

Colonel Flagg: It's personal. Gift for a friend.

[Radar begins to leave]

Colonel Flagg: Corporal. If you can't find scorpions, get two snakes and a rat.

Radar: And a rat. Right, right.

Tank drops are random as far as anyone can tell.


If it's the Skorpion G you want, just buy it normally.


If you also want gold, the 75 box bundle gives you 35k-60k gold (and extras like premium tanks, tank slots, etc) for the same price as a 30.5k gold bundle.



Also you instantly go to high festivity with plenty of tier 5 decorations to scrap, which means getting two collections to max bonus should be easy. That's like having credit and experience reserve bonuses permanently running for the duration of the event - which people seem to be greatly underestimating.


edit: It's pretty likely the Skorpion will come up in the christmas calendar at some point.

Since the Skorpion is a German Tank I would suggest the traditional boxes. there is no guarentee that you will get the tank of course, but those boxes will count for the German Tank Bonus which can get up to 48% on XP, Credits and Crew XP for every battle you play till January 15th.

These boxes ONLY make sense if you want to have the gold.

The boxes give you very, very good value in gold, but anything else is a gamble. But you can get any type of tank in any type of box, so you don't need to buy a Chinese box to get a Type-59 for example. Any time you get a garage slot and a good amount of gold in a box and it means you've won the equivalent in gold of a tank you already have in your garage.
