I had chineese mostly full - need 3 lvl 5. Done all the missions every week. 1 lvl 5 thing per 25 boxes

 

But if that is not bad enough, this weeks missions are borked. I have completed them all. But the second completion of 'New Year Bustle Part 1' is actually displaying as Part 11.  When I click on the small lvl 2 button it says it is mission 1.

 

WTF WG.

 

It's only 4 more boxes. But if were impossible to complete a collection before then this is just getting silly

For people who are very close and missing one or 2 decorations. On the last day of the event demount the tier 5 decorations from the tree,  get the shards and try the luck with the decorider.

Genius.  I'm only missing a single tier IV dec for the whole Russian set and so far the random creation is not being my friend.  This might give me another couple of crafts worth of entries to the lottery.

Why on the last day? Do you lose the +% bonus when you demount them?

Missing 9 still so I have just given up and stopped playing, cannot believe they find a way to ruin every single event they do.  Been going after traditional since it started but RNG screwing me over so ******* hard.  I need 1xTier 4 Bauble and 4 Tier 5 baubles and after opening ~40 boxes from mission rewards added to my already owned ~1600 shards I got a total of ~3.5-4k shards so I got no ******* chance in hell of making 8 Tier 5's.

 

Next event WG ONLY ONE TYPE OF ******* ORNAMENT PER ******* SLOT.

 

1,440 to make and you get 250 back, such a joke just like the company.

Yes you lose the  bonus, that's why it's important to demount them on the last day,

Also for people who are close,  keep in mind Friday in theory the missions will get reset,  and got like 3 days of getting the missions done for the boxes,so if someone is very close might have a chance to finish a collection.

Yesterday I decided to complete the russian collection, with 1x level 4 at 33% chance and 3x level 5, of which two were guaranteed and one 50% chance. All with ~11k shards to work with.

First try on the level 4 gave me directly the missing one. Switch to the first guaranteed item on level 5, but forgot to switch the level as well, so 420 shards wasted. Next 2880 for the first two level 5 left me with ~7k shards for the final 50% chance item. And of course RNG went to work and gave me four times the item I already have, before on the fifth and last attmept I finally got the missing one. Yeah!

So russian camo secured, with the IS-7 as the only tank currently able to use it...

Yep, WG's totally "random" RNG which on a 50/50 coin toss gives you the wrong result 5 times in a row.

 

Yeah i know, that's how random works... :P

Why do you think there's equal chance to get each item when there's several of the same type?

I'm fairly certain some of them are more rare than others.

Holy Jebus the decoration maker was toying with me for a long time..

 

I decided to go for the Chinese camo because that was the nicest. I also bought 11 Chinese boxes just for the goodies, which were nice (even though no tier 8's for me). Everything went all good and well, until I had 3 decorations left, two level 5 ones, and one level 4. So I went and tried to make the level 4 decoration (33% chance to get the right one), but failed. So I tried again, and failed. And again. And again. And again. And again. Then I ran out of shards, so I grinded some more and tried again, and again, failed.

 

Somewhere around 12 failures I decided fk that level 4 deco, I'll try a level 5 one, and got it on the first try (50% chance). Out of shards, grind more boxes. 

 

Got more boxes, got more shards, three more attempts for the level 4 deco, again two failures. I'm running out of missions here... So I gather what's needed for the level 5 one because if I don't get that on like the first try, I'm never finishing this set. 50% chance for it, got it on my first try! Now just the level 4 decoration.. I play a couple games, get a couple boxes and start opening them, aand it gives me the final missing level 4 decoration from the damn box! :facepalm: Don't get me wrong, I got the camo and it's nice and all, but 15 failed attempts and then I get it for free? That's just...
