Simple.

 

Imagine a big bag.

In this bag, you got 1 universal blueprint, 11 national blueprints (1 for each nation), and 300-400-whatever tank blueprints (one for each of the tech tree's vehicle).

 

Now, all of those have the same probability to come out, and whenever you're to get a blueprint of something you already got ( a specific tank, a whole nation) then it gets converted to an universal blueprint.

 

The more tanks you unlock, the more useless and unlikely to help at all are the blueprints you'll get.

The fifth box almost always gives at least one nation blueprint. I've gotten nation blueprints from the other boxes too but much more rarely.

 

Generally I think they've made it so you can't rush a single nation tech tree, but spread out the research between ~3. At least that's the ration of blueprints I've been getting since they released this.

I have less than 15 tier 9's left to grind to get every current tier X. And since I have that. I get universal more so than anything else. It's been a while since I got one for a tier X I don't have. Since I only get parts for what I already have researched. I get universal. My NA account only has 2 lines unlocked. Nothing more. Thus he gets something new each time, and rarely see universal.

 

One thing to also note, you don't get national for a nation you have everything on. If a new line is suddenly added, they will start to appear again.

I only. Swede meds were added and not a single blueprint but the bloody universal. At least with the tank rewards I finally got something other than universal.

I've only gotten 4 since the Swedish meds came in total. But once the wheels were added for France I got 12 in 2 weeks for France suddenly.

Not me, the first non universal I ever got was recently, the 12 I claimed from tankrewards.eu.

Well did not have the Swedish tech tree done when they came. I still have the tier 9's to sort out. I did have the French tree completed pre wheels. Maybe that affects it? As in once you lose the completed status, the drop chance increases? I've got the British completed atm, let's see how many I get when the new lights appear next patch.

That's the thing, it seems tank, nation and universal have the same chances to be given, and that just makes zero sense.

 

I got all grinds done. All of them. As I had when the wheeled French and the Swedish meds were introduced. One would think that whenever a new line showed up, you would be able to have the same chance of a universal, that nation, or the tanks (5 in case of the WVs, 3 in case of the Swedish meds, 4 in case of the British LTs) or universal, but that simply isn't the case.

Neither do you get national blueprints if you have not researched a single tank of that nation.

I have no French, Czech, Japanese, and only recently unlocked the tier 2 Polish tank because I still had the tier 1 in the garage, and I got not a single national BP for those countries. On the other hand I have 4 German tier 10s, and in the two months I played the game since the BPs were introduced I already got 10 German national BPs.

actually, universals are quite useful, you know. if you want to passive XP discount a high tier tank, that is 8-12 universal BPs, can you can burn through those quickly

Not if those are all you've got. I have 480 universal, and 12 Russian from the tankrewards. Whatever lines eventually gets added (like the Brit LTs), and I have absolutely no use for them.

 

There should be a way to convert them to national.

I also get only universal blueprints :(

I'd like to have some british for the light line and I dont get any.

Almost 300 universal and 12 USA from Tankrewards.

 

It maybe has something to do that I have every T10 TechTree tank in the garage :)

I just unlock completely my 2nd tank with assigned blue prints havent used any universal (have 194) blueprints or national (have 41) blueprints..But I havent unlocked most of the tech tech and ony have 1 tier 10 and 1 tier 9 tank..

 So is working as intended mostly aimed at newer players or older free to play players whom haven't unlocked most of the tech tree by giving them a discount in reseaching the tech tree and to incentivise them to buying premuim account..

Can anyone tell me how much time is required to play to get any type of blueprints?

I played WOT a lot more before all this blueprints stuff come along. Trying to get to next tank trough gathering Xp with an AMX 40 and I have played at least 20 matches now and no gain what so ever lol...

So utterly boring tank to use, aim is the AMC Elc Bis and further on the Tech Tree...

You get then randomly with a higher chance the better your play.
