There will be crates, but I'm not sure how in particular you mean "getting". Just want to be clear of the question so I don't give you an incorrect or obscure answer. 

 

Yeah, fair play, you've got to be so careful with this lot...one minor typo and the hordes will be demanding blood and threatening legal action :teethhappy:

Crayfish camo, huh? I 'get' the idea about them being ugly on purpose, but the joke is probably lost on non-RU players; it's my understanding that 'crayfish' in Russian is a pun on a bad player, or something to that extent.

 

Don't get me wrong - I do think it's wonderfully ugly, and I want in on my Type 5 pronto. However, would it really kill the visual artists to make an EU-relevant camo to suggest that WoT isn't only about Russia?

There indeed seems to be little point in trying, Peekaboo seems to have a good grasp of the community staff pitfalls. For once, I actually have a little faith that there's a staff member able to do a decent job when the excrement hits the propeller blades.

Can you tell which style is for which collection? The only style I personally like is this:

IMG_06122018_144539_0.png

and I'm afraid it's for "Magical" collection, which means the worst possible bonus. Seriously, the person who thought it's good idea to put 50% exp/credits bonus on par with 50% free exp bonus deserves a reward of Grinch of 2018.

 

Yep, my fave, too, this and the multicoloured 'fireworks' design. Both all year round designs.

Will the Female Crew members have voices of their own, or are they nation specific?

And I hope for german siege mortar "Karl". Just think of it - overmaching almost 200mm armour! What an arty Karl would make ;)

Last year's event was great and this one looks even better.

 

Thank you for adding an easier way to select all the decorations when you need to smash them for the "large holidron decorider".

​Just to forewarn you I will be going back to the UK for Christmas so it's not "holiday" but actual holiday :honoring:

​I'll double check the answer for you. Will update when I know more.

These are usually good fun events and the boost you can get to tanks makes a real difference.

I got 3 out of 4 camo patterns last year might try and pick up the traditional one this time around.

After I get this years of course.

Honestly, my only wish is that the same music will be playing in the garage, as in previous Christmas events. It was so relaxing and it had the perfect Christmas mood in it.
