THX WG for the new broken xmas slot machine. I've tried to make the last tier 5 decoration to my collection and 7 try give me the same all the time. It can be 2 type (50-50 chance) of the girland and 7 out of 7 is the same. Thank you for the nothing. If you cant do properly something please dont.

Why do you think all decorations have the same chance to drop?

Lol, really? Is it wrong to be upset because wg claimed this year would be better and easier, but instead they've made it far worse?

not so much worse, but u might get 1 collection donr for free and win the camo.  

 

if u want the rest and full advantage of the special (more xp and credits)  u were basically "forced" to buy chests to get it complete.    this combined with the fact that if u bought them at the start u got lots of stuff compared to when u buy em now were ur lucky to break even..... 

 

the basic idea is nice, the big money grab behind it ...not so much

It's flat out ridiculous to be upset in the first place, let alone claim 'it's far worse' based on nothing. Your kind expecting and demanding everything for nothing is what is wrong. Period.

The decorations are supposed to be fun, a game of chance, not an expectation. You could perhaps say a 'partial' game of chance because the more you work at it the more you are likely to get to the end.

Same crap here with me man. Boxes give you only low-level deco, and you have to play your ... off to get enough for the hadron thing. Finally, when you got 1440 shutter points, you still have to be lucky to get what you need. A joke! In lower levels ok, you invest just a little, so the chances are lower too. But at the very end,when there are only 3 or 4 things you really can use, there is no more place for gambling and roulette crap...

 

I tried to completely get the collection album, and i didnt finsih a single one yet, though i play as hell for weeks now...thx WG, i already opened an account elsewhere, you are not the only wargame on the planet..

It was a lot easier to get the main rewards and even up to 48% bonuses.  If you really want to bust a gut over a hideous camo you can currently use only on certain tanks then that's your problem.

Xmas special was great with very good rewards! Making the collection complete for the fugly camo is definitely not worth it though. You should be smart enough to have realized that after the first week.

 

Edit: basically what Homer said

[edited]. It was confirmed by a WG rep that chances to get rewards have been the same as they've always been since day one.

I'm sorry to tell you this buddy, but it is easier & it is better.

Don't ever recall getting +48% across the board before.

Your kind expecting and demanding everything for nothing is what is wrong. Period.

 

First of all, what exactly do you define as 'your kind'? Secondly, I didn't demand anything, let alone everything. Thirdly, how do you know what I've spent on this? Have you been accessing my bank account? Your presumption that I want stuff for free is just that - a presumption.

 

Your kind (the toxic, self-righteous person who thinks you're better than the rest and that no-one elses opinions are valid) are what is wrong with the game. Period.

I don't think I'm better, I know I am. Now before I even bother trying to explain anything, you start by explaining why it's (far) worse.

 

I skipped a few missions in the first week, skipped a few in the second week, didn't play anything this week or last week, did not spend a single dime on boxes for myself, and yet I managed to get to Level 10. And I still have plenty of shards left. Now if I can get to Level 10 with less than 50% of boxes earned through missions, and none bought, how on earth can it be worse than last year?

My WZ 132-1 is not hideous :(

 

That camo is beast.

Lol. And arrogant to boot. It is far worse because last year if you needed a decoration you could combine it. There were lists available which allowed you to get the combinations you needed and plenty of missions to get the decorations. This year, the same is true except you cannot combine them to get the decorations you need, instead you get a random decoration which funnily enough always seems to be one you already have. Therefore in order to complete the collections (which wg know many people will want to do), you are almost certainly forced to buy an undetermined number of boxes for real money. Therefore, it is much worse.

 

The fact that you would claim to be far better says all I tried to say: you think that somehow, because you have a 60% win rate on your pixel tanks you are in some way superior to others, and therefore can talk down to them and disregard their opinions and feelings.

 

So, can you please deign to answer my questions?

ok I just finished my soviet christmas tree. I needed two more items and I crafted just the two items I needed with only one try each. My experience with this whole event. As long as I had enough decoration shards the chances to actually get the desired item was higher than 50%
