It was fun:great:, although loot boxes are not so much. Can we fix that next year - or at least give clear percentage chances for getting specific items?

But I am among those guilty of funding nice vacation bonuses for WG top brass :P

One question, where do I find the female crewmembers which I have not recruited for a specific vehicle?

Apparently there's a button in the notification area.

It was quite good mode. But the CRAFTER was VERY annoying. Same toy for 8 or even more times... So much money wasted...

The even was too "gambly" with very poor distribution of rewards.

One player in my clan spent ~£40 and got EVERY tank ... all the tier 8s and all the tier 4s.

Another spent ~£80 and didn't get a single tank.

 

Lot's of people missed out on getting a camo because they were trying to craft the final decoration but they got the wrong one and again and again and again and again and again ... until they ran out of shards.

 

This may be "random" but it's also incredibly annoying.

 

Come on WG ... Happy customers spend more money.  Don't piss us off with these frustrations.

Another very valid point.

 

Did all the decorations (of a specific tier) have the same chance of being crafted ?  Some seemed to come up over and over and others were like rocking horse sh!t.

 

What was the chance of getting a tier 4 of tier 8 tank ?

Since some smartass moderator blocked and locked topic I posted this late night/early morning I'll now repost it in this official topic

 

As expected, I didn't manage to get even one christmas camo as I'm mostly free-to-play player.

 

I earned every possible christmas box from missions and put a lot of hours during last 4 weeks so I can get even one camo.

In the end I used all decorations from my beautiful tree and house and yard and ruined them so I can get needed shreds for 3 same type decorations I didn't got and guess what?!! I run out of shreds!

Thank you very much WG for your idiot system that mostly works for those who gives you lots of money and f2p players can just suck it. Thank you very much. GG WG

 

P.S. Other than that, like everyone is saying, everything else was awesome, but frustrations will part away players with spending money on this game over time as probably was seen during last two years when you needed to make OP tier 8 premiums to lure people to buy them and give you money. GG WG

It was on the whole excellent though now I am missing my Snowman maybe if I had the hat and sweater I could build him again next year ;)

 

Things I would change not that much really.

Having at least one mission infinite so those that wanted or needed to could always get just one last box, it was easy to complete all the missions in 2 maybe 3 days then no boxes till the following Friday.

 

Being able to craft a specific decoration as opposed to a specific type Given there were  4 baubles 2 garlands, and 2 tree base decorations it was entirely possible to get the wrong one.

And this isn't for anything major just the festive camouflage.

 

If you did every mission and collected all the shards there was just enough to get 16 lvl 5 decorations so you could complete any theme you wanted for the tree snowman house lights and fence.

Almost useless for filling in any one of the books.

 

Buying 44 boxes and completing all the missions plus a fair bit of luck got me 3 camo  patterns that's a bit much to expect anyone to pay for a paint job they will probably just use at Christmas and New Year.

Converting a lvl 5 decoration to another might have been reasonable, you pay 1440 shards to get a lvl 5 if its no use you can only get 250 back in shards that's not great given the random chance of getting the right one.

Could have gone with being able to craft a specific decoration or a lower cost to change one lvl 5 for another rather than having to destroy it for just 250 shards.

Its the part of the event that needs a little tweaking

after all the [edited] usseless grind crap...in a non premium acount, wg you can defently shove these events up in you`re holes where the sun doesnt shine, and the piece of crap rng you invented day in day out for random batles you can shove that too...

braking ornaments into diamonds....

tier 1 - gives 10 diamonds

tier 2- 20

tier 3- 30 

tier4- 70

tier 5-250

the cost of making ornaments out of diamonds in soviet/modern/traditional/chinese

tier 1- 60 diamonds

tier 2- 120

tier 3- 180

tier 4- 420

tier 5- 1440

so for those that want to complete even 1 of any soviet/mocern/traditional/chinese...

has to be    [edited]    grinding the crapout of the game the interty of the event from morning till dawn, that leaves the casual player sucking they`re thumbs for not behing able to do so, that puches the casual players into spending money in "premium" gift boxes where even there the ramdomness of getting a premium tank, is so   [edited] UP  and so ramdonmize that those that invest in those some dont get to see the [edited] tank they want...do some [edited] proper event... where the [edited] cost of grinding isnt a time spending retardness piece of crap... you can shove the christmas event up you`res...[edited] YOU WG

Event was nice to be honest.Step forward compared to last season. Crew members,discounts on selected tanks and 48% booster were really useful. Gambling on the other hand was questionable.Even tho I got fantastic items form 25 boxes I've bought, a lot of people bought much more than me and didn't get desired items.Which sucks. Anyhow, I hope that future events will be something special as this was...when people get rewarded for their commitment during event period. I've grinded a lot of "weak" tanks in no time.

I notice in the stats they don't say how many gamble boxes were sold . :hiding:

 

Enough to make 8-10 million Euro for WG I would imagine.
