I didn't even realise there was a 2nd page of type 5 decorations, WG greed it seems.

 

However I shall not be bothering to try and finish the 2018 collections as its a fool's errand. I shall complete the 2017 ones with my broken shards on the last day and see what's achievable then on 2018.

Indeed. I also thought I had finished the first 4 tiers of a collection and then noticed there were extra pages.

I said I will try to finish one album, by the 14th including all level 5 decorations that I remove from the tree etc, i should hopefully have plenty shards to get me the last 4 level 5 decorations I need..

 

But then again it is random...

This was brought up during the Christmas 2017 event (what WG refer to ingame as '2018 Collection' ), and clearly WG sort of half understood the complaint because this year they allowed us to complete last years book with last years items being worth reasonable amounts of shards each to craft.

 

But it doesn't change the fact that if we're having to gather and spend that many shards on crafting a single level 5 item for this years books using the Decorider, and it can take an entire days with of small boxes to accumulate enough items to make 1440 shards, then surely it wouldn't hurt to have, and indeed presumably it would be a simple process to program, the Decorider to not generate duplicate items.

 

- - -

 

What is slightly annoying is the fact that ALL of the christmas rewards camo's are all 'Preset Styles' rather than individual camos. The problem with 'Preset Styles' is that it renders the whole point of having separate wholly customisable Summer/Winter/Desert camo schemes with individually adjustable camo/emblem/inscription elements completely redundant, because the Styles are not customisable in any way and they get applied to a tank across all three seasonal schemes regardless of whether the camo fits the season or not.

 

It actually wouldn't be so bad if we could apply different preset styles to each of the three seasonal schemes, in the case of last years football event rewards for instance that could have worked out very well indeed, but as it currently stands Preset Styles are often hugely expensive unless they are free rewards, they remove any sense of individual customisability, and frankly they result in some fairly comically eye-wateringly awful looking tanks in battle.

 

So WG, can we please, please, move away from the god awful Preset Style rewards and go back to the traditional customisable camo/emblem/inscription elements for mission rewards, or at least allow us to customise these preset styles by removing/replacing unwanted emblems/inscriptions and by assigning the style to specific seasonal themes only.

^This would be the solution!

 

And otherwise let the missions for small boxes never end, so players get rewarded for playing a lot instead of playing just a few games every day while still not having the possibility to complete all 4 collections.

Well, since my playtime on WoT reduced to level where i barely play game or two per month, I literally passed whole event discounts, callender and/or even stopped getting premium time.

 

But, i'd like to add something, wish these 3D skins were tought and used before, at launch. Like other competitive F2P titles, things that you can buy with payment, may have been limited to simply, better looking tanks. Which i personally liked them all btw. Then we would never have to talk about how premium ammo, consumables and any sort of mechanic that matematically effects game performance. Which literally solves one of main concern WoT has for so long.

Hello! 

 

Apologies, the camo links should be sorted soon, apologies for the confusion. 

 

For the collections, I'll be passing feedback on, my collection isn't looking too bad but I am missing a lot of tier 4 and 5's myself!

Getting all 4 of the 2018 camos was a nice surprize! Didn't bother with current collections nor did I try to get as much boxes as possible. Still 17 items away with the closest one so rather pointless. I we get it next year that would be nice, if not... who cares anyway, not me

You need 1440 shards for just one T5 decoration without insurance that right one will be crafted !! this pisses me really off, i saved all the shards to finish one book, so i thought,

i just found out that if you click on the missing item in the book and craft it , you NOT get the item, but a random one from the same book and tier but NOT the one you NEED

 !!!   WTF ?? WG ???

 

UPDATE: Im just missing 1 tier V ornament from the Christmas book, i have been breaking and saving 1440 shards to craft the right missing ornament, i have done this now 4 times ( that is 7400 shards) and every [edited]time i get the wrong ornament  WHY WG WHY ????

I think this is the third Christmas event involving decorating and collecting.

Its looking like the requirements to complete the minor parts are getting tougher, I mean the books for the camo.

Something that most will not use after the holiday is over.

 

2 years ago you combined decorations to get new ones, no shards back then simply 5 lvl 1 made a lvl 2 and so on.

After a few days players started posting the formula as in which to combine to get a specific higher tier.

Shards came in the next year probably to make it more random.

 

So last year the decorations needed were either 12 or 13 per level so you were aiming to get 13 lvl 5 decorations to fill a book.

This year they upped the numbers considerably lvl 5 decorations New Year 19, Lunar New year 17, Magic New year 21 and Christmas 16

You need 1440 shards to craft a  lvl 5decoration  type there is no way to craft a specific decoration its still random.

 

Luckily you only need to make yourself crazy or spend a fortune if you get obsessed about filling the books.

Normal play gets you probably 3 crew members and some of the bonuses.

I Initially bought 11 boxes got no tanks but did get to lvl 7 straight away and gained 2 special crew played that day and reached lvl 10.

Think I will just do that next year, instead of going crazy buying more and more boxes chasing after rare tanks.

 

Its been a fun event

> You can choose a vehicle for the discount until the release of Update 1.4

 

Why this completely unnecessary restriction? There is currently no tank I need a discount on, because I have literally every regular tank in the garage (I'm mad, I know :hiding:), and I was hoping to use the discounts on the wheeled tanks. But lo and behold - Wargaming says no. Because reasons.

 

You guys really excel at p--- people off.

It is very hard to complete a decoration unless you have 75 or more big boxes.

You got all Tier 5 decorations and make only the missing Tier 4 and 3.

 

I think the majority of players will complete the collections in 2020 :) Including myself
