I received an IS-3A in the first box...shortly followed by the Defender...then a KV-220-2, Turan III, and an M4 Imp. joined the party.

 

5 tanks, two of which are arguably the most broken ones in the entire game...for only 18€.

 

Should I buy a lottery ticket next? :P

I spent way more and all I got was turans.

By the way. If I buy some boxes and the event finishes, donthksenblxes disappear if not opened?

Yeah I think they disappear after the event, open them before it ends, if you haven't already.

It said in the last article that boxes are opened automatically and the contents added to your depot credited to your account at the end of the event  >https://worldoftanks.eu/en/news/general-news/holiday-ops-reminder/

Not as lucky as you, but spent 20 euros, opened the boxes and got an E25, Turanus and KV-220-2 so yeah some people get lucky, and some like my friend open boxes and get the M4-Improved. Also on a tangent why are they selling the Pz-II-J in a boundle only, when you could also sell it as a separate item?

Because they have never sold it on it's own so to do so now would be unfair on those who spent 100 Euro to get it for free.

I spent 300 euros on those smaller boxes because I needed fire extinguishers, and that would still be less disgraceful than buying or 'trying to win' russian tanks. Go Caernarvon and Type 5, at least they're not russian.

If somebody is stupid enough to spend 100 Euros on gold to get some free pixels added on, deserve all they get

I keep seeing this kind of stuff being said every time PZ II J, BTSV or Hydro are being sold in 100€ bundles so can someone finally explain the logic to me? Why is it better to buy 2500 gold for 10€ to every month to keep your premium account running and miss out on the added bonus while also paying more for your gold? After 10 months of buying 2500 gold each month you've spent the same 100€ except you've gotten 25000 gold instead of 30500 gold. That's minus 5500 gold and a rare tank. That 5500 gold alone costs 20€ in the store.

 

To make the matters worse you get further penalties with small transactions. For instance if you buy a premium account for 6 months in monthly increments you end up paying 15000 gold for the 6 months. If you buy 6 months in one click you get the same for 13500 gold and if you buy 12 months in one click it's even cheaper. That's another 1500 gold or more saved, and even more so if you buy the long premium from -15% discount. We're already talking about savings of 8-10k in less than a year which will be enough to buy you a tier 8 premium tank.

 

So paying more real money to receive less gold that you then have to spend inefficiently for even more penalties, and not getting the rare tank makes you smart as long as you can deceive yourself by telling yourself that you are "spending a few few euros now and then"?

No, you might have ran out of luck, wait couple of days or weeks to let the luck recharge :mellow:

Nope, all boxes (small or large) will be opened for you after the event and you'll get whatever is in them.
