first year is was around you could get everything simply by playing.

 

last year you could fill up 2 collections just by playing.

 

this year you cant fill 1! collection without buying boxes!!!  they increased the pieces u need to get with 62! and ofc when u use the decorider, all u get are the pieces u already have...e.g. buy boxes or you will never complete even one collection.

 

and for what? some "interesting" camo''s an inscription and an emblem. It's not like wg is giving away defenders when completing a set. this stuff cost wg nothing!! 

it would have been nice to be able to get them all just by playing regularly.

 

i like this end fo the year special but wg made it a huge money grab fest. 

 

Don't bother having this event next year.

This is why I spend my shards or gems or whatever they are to complete my last year's album. I knew beforehand that it was going to be impossible to get more than 1 style through playing and WG obviously made it this way so you have to buy boxes to get the T5 decorations. I really wanna know has anyone managed to complete 2 sets by just playing and through small boxes?

I bought 200 euro's worth of boxes.

Filled out 2 sets on the spot, plus the shards = 'ed most of a 3rd.  Playing filled out the rest.

Oh, and I got a defender, plus a CWAPTON!!!! of gold and prem account time and silver.

 

My advice is to get a better job so you can afford to spend money on a hobby like WoT.

 

EDIT:

GASP!!! WG made money on the Loot Boxes.  How dare they!!  They are supposed to give you free everything so that you will feel content.  Ugh!!!:facepalm:

First year was horrendous, you only got level 1 decorations and had to craft those into level II and so on, needing a gazillion just for one level V.  Not only that you needed exact mixes of decorations to make the correct next one and even then there was a random chance that it would fail.   Or you could just buy a complete set or exact individual decorations.

 

Last year I completed no collections despite buying more boxes than this year.

 

This year I completed all of last years and one of this years and have bought far less boxes.

 

There may be more decorations needed but they must have also ramped up the number you get through playing.

 

As for getting the same decoration every time, there's already a thread debunking that theory.  I needed 10 today and it took me only 16 goes with the machine.

It's good though that there is actually nothing really of value to be received if you complete the sets, just camos (skins) for the tanks. If someone wants to spend money on those then let them pretty much waste their money. The real prizes are the rewards from the atmosphere level and the bonuses and those were quite quickly achievable from just playing.

the point is not that make money.  the point is that they made a nice little collecting fest into which u run into a paywall.

 

and what they handout is just a little collectable. nothing special

 

and moneywise.... look at the amount of prem tanks i have.  such a poor argument from probaly a kid with rich parents

​See that's the thing. We had these topics last year to saying it was a scam because they did not get a set. As people played everyday and did not get one set done getting every single box. And every topic this year about it all say last year was easy and they got one or two and this year is a scam. If anything it shows it's just luck. You did not complain last year as you got a set. Others did not so they complained last year saying they would ignore the event this year. And this year is no different. Some got one set easy, others got two. Some got nothing.

​If this year was anything to go by. You just get this years set done next Xmas. But... honestly I did not even bother with the all of the sets. As like last year, two of them were really ugly to bother with it.

Oreh, comprehension is just not ur strong suit is it?

 

this could have been a nice collectibles receiving fest with at the end a camo, an emblem and an inscription that u cant get at any other time.

 

this could have been a rly nice way of WG saying "thank you for a nice year"

 

But they decided to make it into a HUGE spending frenzy whith a lot off ppl giving it their all.

 

just a huge marketing failure

So once again, it turns out money is better spent elsewhere than WG.

Huge marketing failure?  I'm pretty sure WG would disagree with that most vociferously.

True, especially those cry posts are hard to understand. You don't like the camo/inscription and emblems ( quote: "and what they handout is just a little collectable. nothing special")  so if you don't think it is special enough to pay for (or get lucky with free boxes and crafting) WHY bother?

Enjoy the 30-50% extra credits and (free-/crew-) XP you get for 4 weeks.

 Actually if people have been throwing money at it that would make it a huge marketing success. :D

Ppl who spend money just to buy boxes to get shards for some ugly cammos deserve to be laughed at.

Believe it or not, I aimed for camo sets and bonus on credits.

 

with 2 sets I got defender and IS 3A (didn't even have a clue what was that).

 

The camo sets are cool and love it. I got santa Claws in the process too.

 

If you gamble for tanks you might be disappointed and find it a scam, if you aim for the premium time and gold and bonuses, is actually an okay trade.
