yeah, annoys me too, I dont want to wait 2 minutes after my first game of the day when I get like 8 boxes... ffs WG. I dont need the bonuses, then dont annoy  me with it too.  I just  wanna plat the game. Same with the decoration breaking. Like did really noone think of a break all button? Thats such a simple thing that any decent UI designer would immediatly implement. I am not going to individually click the 200 level 1 items i have...

There is a break all button, it's the select all which is missing.  Got to give WG chance to catch up though, it's a new concept, only having been around since the 1980's.

There's a mod in Aslains mod pack that automatically opens the boxes for you.

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. 

 

Will be available next christmas, costs 50 gold. ;)

 

On another note: gift opening videos on youtube are like crack cocaine for 3-4 year olds. Get a kid to click them boxes open for you. :)

 

On second thought aquiring this kid might be a bit suspicuous and get you in trouble. So maybe don't.

I hate the stupid wait for the animation. I currently have 51 unopened boxes, i plan on rewarding my 8 year old for opening them all for me. I would imagine after box 10 he will be bored. Ar least set them to all open after each battle... stupid ui design.

I activated some personal reserves the other day, so I just left the boxes unopened until those had run out, what a mistake, a few boxes at a time is bearable, but I opened close to 70 in a row which turned out to be horrific, then when I realized I needed to select about 210 decorations manually I snapped.

Or you can make a short autohotkey script to do click, click, ESC and open all the boxes... but, that takes away the spirit of the boxes

I was thinking about something like that, but I'm not sure if that might result in the anti-cheat system taking a look at your account or not, I mean I don't want to be banned since I had a script opening boxes and scrapping decorations.

Really? You're complaining about literally nothing now. 

 
 Wow, I'm sorry that not all of us are like you and have so much time on our hand to WASTE on utter pointless garbage.

When I play a game, i'd rather be playing the game as opposed to waiting on pointless side crap to animate just because WG thought we weren't wasting enough premium and boost time doing [edited] all. 
You do realize this is intentional right? Intentional annoyance which involved throwing money and time into making animated and annoying, right? 

 Not that other companies don't do it, but I swear it feels even slower and annoying in WOT. 

 Press ESC to skip the animation, open box again, esc again and repeat, that way you don't wait for the turd to animate. I don't think waiting for the animation is a requirement to getting the good stuff (for the money boxes) but I wouldn't put it past WG.  
 For braking decorations select the lowest right one, left key will move you all the way to the top eventually, you still have to click left and enter for EVERY SINGLE [edited]  ONE

That would've been useful to know before :sceptic:

Still shouldn't need mods to bypass a minor annoyance.

Yes, the animation is a bit too slow. It took me 7 minutes to open 27 boxes yesterday...

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. :)

 

Hopefully it wont be as bull**** as this year and actually doable without shelling out ££

it's not like were are only at about 60% of obtainable boxes or the whole thing was designed to be able to complete 1 skin with F2P.

Wanted it all? Cough up the caps, you should know by now that WG isn't charity.

Was annoyed by this as well,

 

Pressing escape and clicking open boxes again is somewhat faster though.

3 weeks and I am 10 away from completing the one I have been focusing on and they are pretty much Tier 5's, I got no ******* chance since there is more than one type and it costs 1,440 to make and you only get 250 back when you should really get half the cost to make it.

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.

 

Do you have some place you need to be?

I mean seriously, it's not exactly the end of the world spending a few minutes opening boxes.

Yep I got limited time with kids, work, wife and when you got more than a few boxes to open those few minutes you spend opening those boxes tends to leap away towards 15 mins, 30 mins and so on, not to mention the time you spend scrapping the decorations you don't want. It's a major oversight that there is no open all and scrap all function.

No, but sitting there jsut waiting for 2 mins after every battle isnt fun is it. Its just annoying to be bored for 2 mins when you are playing a game for entertainment.  Imagine the que time for a battle was 2mins every time and you had to click every 10s to stay in the que. How would that be acceptable?
