Thanks.

Make a script in your keyboard driver just with pressing enter button. Go AFK for 2 min, finished

Yeah i know. I wonder how they forgot to add such a basic option since they count on you to create shards 24/7 where it makes sense to collect a lot before making the items you need. :facepalm:

They fired the person who added that option because he was far too sensible to be working at WG.

Also such complicated feature as selecting all decorations at once when creating shards couldn't be implemented.

I activated some personal reserves yesterday so I didn't want to open the boxes I "won" right away, later in the evening I opened about 70 boxes, one at the time, dear god when that finally was over I thought to my self, I'm never doing that again. Then in sheer horror I realized I manually needed to select 200-220 decorations if I wanted to make them into shards, at this point I snapped.

 

A button to open all boxes is missing.

A button to select all decorations so you manually can deselect some if don't want to scrap them is missing.

A description on the decoration what sort it is, is missing, is this thing I'm missing a garland, perhaps it's some lights, ahh no it's something that should be placed at the bottom of the tree, who would have guessed.

 

WG seemed to have shifted to a flashy but none informative and cluttered GUI design recently, at first they butchered the mission interface and then they just seem to have worked their way to the next thing.

One fast method to select decorations you want to break for shards: click on the first decoration then use your keyboard: right arrow>space>right arrow>space>right arrow>space>etc...

fast-ish way of opening the box, click open, press escape and repeat. You won't get to see what you get but who cares, it's all junk anyway and you can check it later. 
Click box - open - escape - box - open -escape

This took me a while to figure out, but this at least is in the game. If you hover over the decoration in the collection book, look at the top left corner of the window that appears. There is a symbol for each item category that corresponds with a symbol on the Holidron Collider.

Ahh I see, that I've missed entirely.

Far more likely that this person either quit or ended up in a psychiatric ward...

The most useful rewards are actually the Christmas boni going up. If you have level 10 atmosphere plus collected enough decorations of a certain set, you receive a bonus of up to 48% on all XP and credits gained by every tank that corresponds to that set (Soviet set for the Russians, Traditional for German and French etc.). You don´t need all the decorations in a set for the bonus to reach the meximum 48%, but quite a few. After that, getting 100% grants you that set´s special Christmas camo, as mentioned above.
