I did ALL missions to collect decos and shards but I wasn't able to complete even ONE collection.

Although I had no EXPECTATION to complete one, I had nonetheless a HOPE to complete a collection.

Because of the "special" drop probabilities of decorations in the decorider thing, this hope has been disappointed.

Please note that this is NOT A COMPLAINT - it would just have been nice to have a fair chance of completing a collection.

 

Here is a proposal for improvement: I wish WG would make deco probabilities equal in the decorider. Then a nice mini-game could be played with the decorider, requiring players to calculate probabilites for every family/tier/deco type to optimize the shard cost for in the end completing a collection of they did everything right.

 

That would be a nice touch and give a better feeling than having enough shards in theory and then getting the same deco over and over again and quickly running out of shards.

Didn't play much.  Paid a bit but spread it over different collections, completed one plus the four from last year.

 

Checked how many shards I can get from the tier V decorations and there aren't enough to complete another set unless I get really lucky going random/random/random.  In fact bought 3 boxes last night and increased that collection by one so it's not even worth trying to pay to win.

Just scrapped my decorations to add to the shards I already had left in order to complete another set. I got 9 tier V identical decorations.

Well that blew my chances. Hopefully I will forget my miserable WG xmas luck next year and invest again.

I do have some 400+ days of premium which is ok but 51k gold with an M4 Impr. and KV220 to show for it will certainly act as a reminder of how bad it actually was.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all... bah humbug

Just as much RNG on what decorations you get both from the mission boxes and the crafting as with everything in WoT.

This is strange, because I got all 4 collections on day three.

i have a question regarding the possibility of destroying the current ornaments of shards.

Im at level 10 of the Xmas event and i have activated all my tank discounts and recruited all four of the female crewmembers, lets say when im done playing tonight - I take off all the level 5 ornaments and crush them to get some extra shards - are there any negative consequences for doing this? (i wont get the tempered glass camo either way but at least this way ill have come a bit further next year if they let us continue w the 2018 collection next Xmas)

Knowing my luck, I'd do the same and then WG will announce a further 2 weeks....you go first fella, let us know how you get on ;)

 

I still need 46 level 5 decorations, but I'm not spending a penny on boxes.

I created shards, needed the dog for the christmas collection (10 left to get) for 5 days I tried, 12 times to get 1 single tier V deco shredded for days to pay 1400. Just wiped the tree clean and created shards, enough for 3 attempts, not one dog! 

There is only one word for this ... pathetic - what do I do? Go buy boxes? 11 boxes got me 4 decorations off the tree :|

 

Promoting gamblig is bad enough but this took the buscuit for me.

 

Edit: Oh ... I still dont have the dog!

you must be joking, I'm really struggling even with the large payed boxes, let alone doing the missions on a daily basis would be useless: one, maybe two collections if lucky? I was happy to get the damn old ones though.

yep, 5 times I tried for 1 tier5 deco, 5 times I get the same other one that I don't need.

 

GG WG, what a [edited]ripoff.

 

you'd think that by playing every day for the past month and spending over £60 you'd allow me to get a couple of poxy camos.

 

well, that's ok, because coupled with the pisspoor teams you've been matching me with its a big #walletclosed from me.

I complete one album and I miss 2 lvl 5 decorations for the second one. But hey I'm glad I complete all 4 from last year. So 5 new camos is not so bad after all.

Tier V decorations give you 250 shards and it takes 1440 to craft one if you get lucky.

 

Smashed all my remaining decorations, which gave me 2 attempts at tier V and I got lucky twice.  Still needing 5 tier V and 2 tier IV for a 2nd collection.  Soon ran out of shards but hopefully they will do the same next year as they did with last years.

If you've any interest in it you should have just bought a few boxes from the start. That way, you'll most likely complete a full collection before the end of the event along with having a lv10 atmosphere for all the "free" stuff like crew and discounts along with have 50% buff for most things. It makes sense to do that straight away so you'll be benefiting from it straight away instead of completing it towards the end of the event and only having a few days of max benefits or even worse, buying boxes at the very end when you could have bought them at the very start.
