The RNG in crafting is so fu...ed up and  completely unnecessary. It adds absolutely nothing but frustration. I spent 40 € for 25 bloody boxes and despite playing daily to complete the box quests, I was missing to level 5 modern decorations. But I had 17,000 dust and naive enough to think that would be enough to get them both. 

I know I have still two days to play to get more boxes to get more dust to get one or two more chances to craft but I REFUSE to play the game because I FU...ING HAVE TO.

So to hell with this event or any event that will have RND crafting.

Do you realize that it is an entirely OPTIONAL event? Noone forces you to play.
But if you definitely want to beat it, then suck it up and stop moaning.

So... You spent 40€ just to be able to get a single camo pattern, the practical gold worth of which is 450 gold. Okay.. :unsure:

Actually I bought the boxes because I was hoping to get some cool stuff, garage slots, gold and maybe a Tank. I got one garage, 8k gold and B2. Not complaining about that, athough could have been more garages. I discovered the bonus camo afterwards.  My gripe is that after 25 boxes and that from all the boxes you got from mission, I still didn't get all the different decorations because I got multiples of the same piece.

 

I know its optional but the point is there is no way of getting a single camo without spending enourmous amounts of money because you have to be "lucky".

Welcome to gambling. 

btw: People complain about p2w all the time. Do you agree with those complaints? If yes, you shouldn't complain about this here...

at least you got a B2 tank,

imo the only tank I know that you can spam APCR without premium account and still make credits, when you win.

Completing one or two collections shouldn't be that hard without buying a single box, I did that quite early on (Modern and Traditional), I still lack like 8 from both Soviet and Chinese though so I will most likely just get 2 camos, completing all 4 however seem kinda impossible without buying boxes.

You have to play the game to use the hideous camo you are do keen to get.

Earlier today I got the Chinese camo. I haven't put in a penny, barely did any of the missions for the first week and wasn't even that lucky. Yes, there is obviously an element of chance involved, but getting 1 skin is fairly doable without spending a penny.

Don't worry. They will discount the 75 box deal by 50% on the last day and you can get all your missing ornaments then.

The camos are fun for a day. I already put my standard camo back, will probably use the Christmas camo on special occasions during the year.

I got the Soviet Christmas camo without spending a thing, it's so hideous I'd consider paying €40 for WG to take it away again.

I honestly doubt this. 

 

The thing is the paid boxes give you level 5 ornaments but the mission boxes gave me mostly low level ornaments that give minimal amounts of shards when broken. But level 5 ornaments need a lot of shards to roll on

 

I believe the event was designed so you had to buy at least 11 boxes of a collection to get a chance at the free camo, but I'm sure some maths geek can do the sums if they wanted to and prove it one way or another.
