very happy for guys with obj, not happy for the guys who pay 200$ and dont get it!

but here is a mission for poor people olso, like me, i dont have money, and the one i have i use it for pampers for my little girl, this christmas i give her a 10$ present, so is impossible for me to have a 100$ gift in boxes althought i will like to play obj, but this is life...

so passing to the point, in 2017 and 2018, i tried to get a camo, my tactic was to open all de boxes, then craft random decorations tier 5, and at the end to try to fill the gaps,

in 2017, i missed like 40 pendants in 2018 same missed 40 also, 5-10 from the one i want the camo and others from other 3.

What do you think, in 2019 is possible to make at least 1 camo? or is impossible like other years? Or maybe i do a mistake, but i think my tactic is the best, get all boxes open then start to craft from what doubles u have.

I appear to have ended up with a duplicate large decoration for the yard... didn't think that was supposed to be possible based on the article?

Stupid shard creation settings and yes stupid me too.

Be really really careful when making shards The mistake I made was in assuming I had to select the decorations I wanted to destroy when in fact I was selecting the opposite.

All shards were selected even though the box destroy all was unticked.

 

I left all the lvl 5 decorations alone and clicked on all the lvl 4 3 2 and 1 and then destroyed them.

All the lvl 5s vanished and I was left with all the smaller ones.

 

I have all the lunar decorations in place to lvl 5 but it would have been nice to later on in the event try out the others to see how they looked.

Unlikely now given I just destroyed them all.

Maybe change the way it works next year and have a quick look at the setting now in case there is something amiss.

I ended up buying more loot boxes to get the things for the collections but mostly for the crews, boosters and gold, i got 3 packs of 25 boxes, the 1st one was the best one, and i have a post about it here already, 2nd gave me the rest of the skins i was missing and the E75, and some gold, even doe, little, the last one, well the last one, lets just say it was money lost, since i got no premium tanks, not even the shitty tier 2s, almost no gold, just role of the dice after role of the dice of 100k credits or 250 gold... Dissapointing as hell!!!

 

Well im done for this year, for sure! I was expecting a little more but hey i was really lucky last year and got all of the stuff so...

But seing that really [Edited] bad roll of 25 boxes... Damn!!!!

 

 

 

You was unlucky I think you can expect 20/30k Gold ( with compensation) , 3/6 slots and  20 days of premium after collecting  all the tanks if you buy another pack of 25. If you plan to invest a lot of money for Gold and to complete your collection the best strategy is to start with a pack of 75.

I have 2 identical level 5 decorations equipped. There seems to be no way to split them so as to break one for shards. Any suggestions, or is this a glitch?

Go to the Holiday Spirit page, click the Shards tab, select the ones you want to smash for bits, ???, and profit.

They say you cant craft duplicates, but I guess duplicates can drop.

I have had 0 drop (completed every poor-person box so far).

I crafted two, thinking the game might not hand out a duplicate but I guess it does, that stinks.

120 large decorations and I only have had 9 fall (3 were duplicates!).  So if it keeps going this way I'll need about 150,000 shards to complete the collection.

Thanks for taking the time to help guys.

 

Mav 75, I am at festive spirit 9 and have created a lot of shards already. In this case I have 2 decorations that are identical so display with one icon and the number 2 attached. I cannot split them when applied or when not applied. Previously identical decs both break when actioned, so I will lose both level 5s, my sympathy to Gremlin who posted earlier.

 

Mr Deo, you can craft duplicates, though my duplicate was a drop, that is the reason for the antiduplicator which is expensive to use in terms of shards since you must select three criteria to craft in order to use the antiduplicator, costing 1,080 when 720 will achieve the desired result, assuming you are not interested in magic, lunar, etc. types.

 

So I appear to be stuck with 2 decorations and must keep both or neither!

Normally, you shouldn't be possible to get Large Decorations duplicates.

As you can see on the screenshot, the orange light indicates that you would get one of the two missing Large Decorations.

 

Could you send me a screenshot of the duplicates via PM? thanks!

5abr3 was talking about "Large" decorations, not Level 1-5 ones.

The "Large" ones shouldn't be duplicated when crafting, and I find it odd that they are duplicated when dropped.

 

Your problem, I think (Not sure as I break mine up as soon as I get them) is a stack of more than one, so how do you break all but one?.

Well... Fit one to your display and then break the rest.

parim, any help with my issue outlined on this page?

 

Mr D, you are correct regarding 5abr3, but, with my issue, both go into display mode, I cannot separate them because of their single location (Feast, Table decoration).

Guys make sure you go through every decoration slot and apply the highest you have available. Then all the shards showing on the shards tab can be destroyed. No need to pick them. Then just craft the lvl 5 ones for the sections you need.

I bought one 25 box and got to level IX this way immediately.

Exactly right, thx J4kal

Use the 'shards' tab, I have been doing this 'long hand' from the start

Unless you get exceptionally lucky and receive few or no duplicates from the small mission reward lootboxes, and you pick up every single available small box over the entire course of the event, then the odds of completing even one of this years reward camo's without buying any large gambling boxes is probably very slim indeed, especially because this years album requires significantly more items than previous years have.

 

That said, if you also get very lucky indeed with the decorider, then perhaps you'll be able to craft a lot of the missing items with not too many duplicates dropping, in which case maybe, just maybe, you'll unlock at least one of the reward sets.

 

Unfortunately, as we are all more than aware, the small lootboxes are notorious for dropping multiple duplicates, as is the decorider, and this year not even the 17 anti-duplication charges are going to be enough to help most people complete even one of this years collections.

 

In your case, to be honest you're probably better off getting to level 10 atmosphere this year, which is very doable without buying any large boxes, and then saving up and using whatever shards you get from items you earn after that to try and unlock whichever camo's you wanted from the previous albums; and at least while you're doing this you're still earning items for this years album which'll make it less work to complete next year. The good news is that each individual 2018 & 2019 collection (magic/lunar/etc.) can be completed with a single payment of shards this year without any risk of wasting shards by crafting duplicates.

Really pi** poor not to get anything because you've been playing the game for 8 years, so have nearly researched all the tech trees :(  when you could use the totally useless national blueprints (373 of them in my case) as universals with the national ones you do need, what are you giving out next year chocolate teapots

Got level X in 4 days. I got some level 5 decos from the boxes and quite a few level 3 and 4. Destroyed all level 1-4 to get shards and crafted random level 5. Finished by crafting specific level 5's for the remaining 4-5 slots.
