Am I the only one being annoyed by this? I don't need a tiny tense moment before opening my present. I have 40 of them to open -_-

It's taking ages just clicking and clicking and waiting for it to open.. If I wanted to click so much, I'd play the arty. Same with the decoration-breaking thingy. It's missing a "select-all" and "deselect-all" button.

It just feels so much like a chore and it's not fun, something to consider for the next year, Wargaming.

I'd love to see an answer to this too. Last year you could automate this, this year its boring, as is having to break excess decorations one by one. There must be a better way that I am just missing. Or are the devs really this obtuse?

Hover your mouse over box. Click it. Click Esc button and click again on the box. It makes it much shorter. Try it out.

You mean as pointless as waiting 10 minutes until you open some imaginary gifts in a game?

Seriously, it's harder to open all of them than to get them.

It's better than last year and next year will be improved from this year, hopefully with a Select All to break decorations into shards and Open All for when you've got a lot of boxes. It is what it is for now, be chill with it. :)

You need to get used to this, you ask a question, it can be a pretty sensible or innocuous question, and wait hopefully for an answer.

But what you actually get is a load of forum vomit from jaded morons who didn't actually know the answer but are unable to resist the opportunity to look smart among their forum cronies.

It's not unique to WoT, the various game forums are stuffed with smug little fools who feel compelled to try and belittle anyone who asks a question they don't have an answer to.

Don't mind the wait it's like Christmas presents its the anticipation of getting leval 5 baubles then the disappointment of getting leval 1 again....I did try left click, shift to select all, simple soul am I, but no. So yes it can be a pain but like I said anticipation....

Nothing?

 

It's time and time is money and wouldn't you rather be going vroom vroom boom boom than watching some tinkly animation for the 39th time.

 

And once again, the WoWP secret santa wins.  You just log in and they already opened everything for you, if you are interested in what you got you can scroll through the list.  If not you can stumble across that tier VIII premium some weeks later while looking for a hangar slot to clear out.

I am being chill about it, it's just something I've noted, that maybe it'd be more comfy to have them open instantly without any animation. Or at least give us an option to turn it off :)

As it is this year, you spend 10 minutes clicking the crates and then you spend another 5 minutes clicking the decorations you want to dissasemble for shards.

That's 15 minutes, I can fit another match or two into that.

Same as the missions tab really... It was better before - simple-looking and convenient.

Agreed that it could have a few UI improvements but for the first run at something this involved I think they've done a pretty good job. As for the missions ... I'll say it, I like the new interface. I agree that it was clearer and easier to find the requirements in the old lists but they looked pretty tired and while these changes always annoy people who've gotten used to the old way, the new way doesn't take much effort to adapt.

 

Now, where did I leave that shill card ... :unsure:

Actually the answer to OP's question is: I don't know if you are the only one annoyed by this. It doesn't bother me though. It doesn't take long to open the boxes, so why worry about it?

 

However, if he is suggesting the inclusion of an "open all" or "break all" button, then I would agree that would be useful and handy, but its not the most important thing.

So, one should suggest only the important things? Small suggestions are easier to push through.

And I am suggesting it :)

Or I could not have to learn a new secret combination of button presses for every new game feature.  Just have an option to open all.  It's not hard.

Yeah, next year an open all button and a select all (or ability to shift-select) function in the crafting screen would make everything a lot smoother.
