You can't blame them for it. Remember, the "silent" majority didn't get $h1t at first. Then a thread popped up talking about boxes not worth the money after initial successes.

I 've only bought 3 boxes for myself so far and got something worthwhile. Now, I seriously don't expect anything significant so I won't get any more.

Much news, such revelation, so important, WOW!

After a few dozen of threads about the lootbox RNG, it sure is necessary to make a new one. :sceptic:

Oh yes, lots of people didn't get a tier 8 tank.

Except they accepted that they gambled, lost and won't get the Type 59 they see other people brag about on these forums.

So they don't come whining here like a little kid that didn't get his/her "deserved" toy.

 

Btw, you got 100% value of what was promised per box: 250 gold, a tier 5 decoration, a random tier decoration and a random bonus.

It wasn't even the casino who advertised.

It was the jackpot winners cheering in public.

You know WG break EU law by adding the ability to buy a box that gives you a random reward. It's called Betting in the terms of a raffle or lottery. Very against the law on games that are advertised as free to play & you need a betting licence for games to have such a thing. Because you cant buy them with in game credits. You have to pay for them.

I spent a tenner on the pub raffle and didn't win anything. At least you got something back.

I very much doubt this is the case, considering that loot boxes are not currently classed as gambling. You are of course welcome to initiate legal proceedings but currently you will get absolutely nowhere. Personally I believe that loot boxes are gambling but the law does not.

A digital item that can only be purchased with money that doesn't give a specific return, is under EU law a form of gambling. I can look up & share the exact ruling if you like!

It's not against any law since you buy the boxes for the Decoration and the gold. And you can get  something extra  if lucky. 

 

You should never buy the boxes if you don't need the gold or the prem time that comes with it.
