Or perhaps specifically made not to yield certain objects except through purchased boxes.

 

For the last couple weeks I have needed just a couple more items to complete my Soviet collection. Of these, the only level 5 object I have left is the "Camouflage Net", a Soviet level 5 garland.

 

Every time I collect 1440 shards, I try again. For the first couple times, I didn't give it much though, but after 8 attempts now, I've gotten the same one each time. Always the "Soviet Lights" instead of the Camouflage Net.

 

There are 2 possibles, so that should be 2^8 likely or 1/256. That seems pretty garbage odds all right.

 

It has effectively destroyed any chance of completing the set and getting the soviet camo (I still need a couple more level 4s, so no chance with the remaining boxes).

 

Growl

You're supposed to run dry on shards and buy lootboxes. Working as intended.

I think it works exactly as intended -> not give you what you need -> buy boxes for money -> not get what you need -> buy more boxes for money -> not get what you need -> buy more boxes for money -> not get what you need -> buy more boxes for money -> not get what you need -> buy more boxes for money -> not get what you need -> buy more boxes for money -> not get what you need -> buy more boxes for money -> not get what you need -> buy more boxes for money -> not get what you need -> buy more boxes for money -> not get what you need -> buy more boxes for money -> not get what you need -> buy more boxes for money -> not get what you need -> buy more boxes for money -> not get what you need -> buy more boxes for money -> not get what you need -> buy more boxes for money -> not get what you need -> buy more boxes for money -> not get what you need -> buy more boxes for money -> not get what you need -> buy more boxes for money -> not get what you need -> buy more boxes for money -> not get what you need -> buy more boxes for money -> not get what you need -> buy more boxes for money -> not get what you need -> buy more boxes for money -> not get what you need -> buy more boxes for money -> not get what you need

 

How hard could it be to program it in such a way that getting a thing you dont have is 100% more likely than getting a duplicate and then simply double the cost of a craft or something along those lines... well, too hard if you want to rip people off.

Or make it so the already picked decorations by the RNG be excluded from the pool of possible choices for the next 'roll dices'.

This would make possible to get the model of bauble you need in maximum 4 crafts, the model of garland in maximum 2 crafts, etc...

 

But as you say i think they just want to rip off money from people.

In the first day it was raining with Type 59 and other tier 8 tanks -> people spoke about that in forums and clans, or just told to their friends about that -> more people bought more boxes, because it was looking like is a big chance to win something -> in fact tier 8 tanks won on those boxes rate dropped to a 0.0001 chance after the first day. It was all just to make hype.

 

Now at the end of the event people want to get one ore more camo and try to complete collections -> 'RNG' thingy keeps fabricating the same bauble that you do not need -> people buy again more boxes.....

Go on then, buy some boxes and prove it.

So to prove the conspiracy theorists wrong I smashed all my decorations.

 

After a bit of crafting my modern level V looks like this.

So I bought 3 boxes.

 

My collection looks the same.

 

But.

I can't even theoretically complete just one collection, not even if all remaining shards came out just right.

Guess I must have been especially unlucky with my draws.

I've unlocked three of the camos, the decorider is purely luck based, sometimes it will give you exactly what you want, sometimes it will screw you over repeatedly.  Sadly because it's tiered it's worse if you get bad luck at tier V than at say tier III, so I can understand some players being annoyed with the RNG.

"Decorider broken"? I wou;ldn't know. It's so hard to use that I prefer tanking. I might have a last look at the poxy useless thing tonight. Hope never to see it again.

 

Well after some fooling around, breaking decorations (why? not normal to do this...) and clicking on stuff managed to get to level 8 something, God knows what, how or why. I am distinctly unimpressed, he said to him, with exaggerated politeness.
