All the decent stuff was snapped up on the 1st day.

A marketing ploy; word spread, so others would spend their pocket money on WG goodies.

Not really. The probability is probably the same but if you got a reward you want to speak about it, when you don't you will stay quiet. Now people got their hopes up so they started complaining and getting a new t8 tank is nothing special after a zillion of topics. The change in info is simple psychology not some evil wargaming ploy.

Say what?

Tried to read this 3 times, but I really don't understand...

 

On topic; I'm quite sure these things are manipulated. To think otherwise is very naive in my opinion.

It's the AC-1, and there aren't any steroids about it.

Ive opened 25 boxes today, results are:

15 day premium

9200 gold

2500k credits

Skorpion

 

If i take a default price as 10e for 2500g/month of premium, its not the best. I was somehow expecting, that amount of gold will be at least worth of those 40e. More like the rate of half year premium in sale. But this... Yes, there is a Skorpion, so its a great deal, but chances are really low and without it i would be pretty much ****** . Cant recommend this gambling if money is something you count closely. You will probably end like OP, not like me.

There's something wrong with you, then. Seemed pretty obvious what he meant.

 

 

He simply thinks that chances are same throughout entire event, just people who won something on first day were more likely to come to brag than people who got nothing were likely to come to complain, while now this trend has either reversed or winner's voices drowned in all the complaining.

 

I personally expect that WG did change chances, but that's my cynicism speaking.

that's the gambling part, you hope to get your favourite premium tank but at least you have the gold/premium time worth the money so basically you lost nothing.

probably will try another 11 box bundle somewhere this month as I'm still some gold short from getting the Lowe (or hold on to it for when the scorpion hits the techtree

I bought these to get the Tier X festive spirit whatnot.  I already have all the tanks that you might win.  As it turned out I didn't get any of the tanks anyway.  I got my festive up to X so I'll be able to concentrate on the WoWS North Cape marathon over the holidays.  Worth it for the lady crew and I also saved a couple of million on my T110E5

Just because people aren't celebrating their tier 8 tanks in the forums don't mean they are not getting them.

 

What's happened is all the more active forumites bought packages right at the start, and some of them got tier 8's. Naturally they came to celebrate it here, and then all those who didn't get tier 8's kept quiet because you of course can't expect to get one. Now then, a bunch of other people saw on the forums that 'hey, people are actually winning tier 8 premiums!' and went in and bought some boxes, somehow thinking tier 8's were the norm, which it never was.

 

Now we are at the stage where the forums are getting filled with people who went in with too high expectations, but what you have to realize is a lot of people bought the boxes on the first day too and didn't get any tier 8 tanks! They just didn't come to the forums to whine because they realized a tier 8 premium is not to be expected, it's something that some get as an added super win.

Maybe I should have added a 'sarcastic' smiley at the end of my post. :hiding:

Well if you were being sarcastic, then considering JaffaStar (who spent a whole bunch of time yesterday whining about how he didn't get any tier 8 premiums and that basically the boxes are rigged) is the only one here to like your post, yes you probably should have.. :hiding:
