So it's not news that I'm sick to my stomach of the current  christmas con job, spent so much time reading on the frickin forum about all these great  pieces of "luck"  and I noticed a theme that lots of streamers and you tubers seem to be very "lucky". 

 

Personally it seems I've broken a mirror, I already have all the T8 premiums on offer except the Type 59, so it would appear I only need to get lucky once and then by virtue of having the others I would get the type - surprise, surprise, I'm "Not lucky" - ashamedly I've bought 4 x 11 packs, 1 X 3 pack, 1X 75 pack ( all on day 1 ) and to top it all off having looked at shishx' video this morning I went and got 1 x 25 pack. 

 

Getting sweet FA again on this last pack has finally prompted me to create this poll - so calling on all you streamers and youtubers please tell us how lucky you have been, the cynic in me says you've all been very lucky.

 

I'm not one for normally wearing tin foil on my head but this particular  season has pissed me off no end, I did not mind last year - being an idiot I already had bought the Patton KR  so was not bothered about not getting the tank but this year as it's a tank that cannot be bought for money it really really gets under my skin that they've done this.

 

Cheers

There is a proverb which says..

 

fool me once, shame on you!

fool me twice, shame on me!

 

so... 4 x 11, I wont count the 3, 1 x 75 and 1 x 25..

 

no further questions..

I got the type -59 but basically I just brute forced my way to it. I was given no favours for either being a streamer or supposedly being WG's No 1 Shill.

You have spent money on something which you fundamentally misunderstood.

How much gold did you get? Cause if you already have the tier 8 tank you get its value in gold.

That is my only explaination why you didn't get a tier 8 premium.

I have lots of gold which apart from buying premium time on discount is not really useful to me, and I stared hard at each of those boxes so I definately did not get a T8 premium tank

Did you get 10k gold in some? Otherwise you are really unlucky then. I got the T26E5 and Lorraine 40t as tier 8 prems, aswell as the T-28 with the 85mm and the Sentinel.

Going into the loot box gamble with the intention to get the type 59 was a very risky decision and you (literally) paid for it.

 

The packs give you ATLEAST the moneys worth in gold and prem time back. Everything else should be considered bonus. The fact that some Youtubers got lucky has nothing to do with then streaming it or making a video of it. I seen people get it from a 3 box pack and some didnt got the type even afte multiple 75 box packs. Its the rough reality of loot boxes.

 

> Frist day the forums, youtube, streams are flooded with people pulling the type.

> Then follow the first packs without luck

> What follows then is the usual system of "rage" purchases <- This is your case

Not multi choice and cant vote for More so cant place a vote as it would be inaccurate.

First off, I am no Youtuber not streamer. I already had Type59, Skorpion G and  Lorraine in the garage (yes, I am a tank collector or wallet warrior, whichever way you want to call it...).

 

On the 1st day of Holiday Ops, I decided to buy a pack of 3 boxes, to kick-off the garage decoration frenzy… and guess what ? I got the T26E5 !

 

So, forget about tin foil hat theories, conspiracies and such… It just a case of real bad luck on your side !

I got lucky with my x25 Modern boxes: got the Lorraine and Type 59. I hope for you and others out there that werent that lucky that the upcoming specials might yield it for ya:

 

23–31 December: It begins... the discount frenzy starts here! Amazing discounts on a huge variety of vehicles, Premium Account, and other services in the game.

and

30 December–1 January: The final push of discounts and bonuses. If you haven't found what you were looking for in the Happy Holidays special, this might be just for you. Enjoy!

I'm not a youtuber, or streamer; not even a good player... but i did have all the premiums on offer already (including the T4's) except the non-clown E5 and the Type 59.  i bought 1 box of 25 on the first morning and got both T8's that i didn't have.... 

 

no tricks, no conditional rewards.. just luck
