A question for "number" colleagues: is it possible to get level X in only 3 days, with small boxes, only ?

 

Four or five days is a lot more likely, but how long it actually takes is entirely dependant on what items drop from the small boxes, and whether you can complete all the available missions each day.

If you get lucky and have a significant number of tier 3 & 4 (& 5) items drop then you'll obviously get it done far quicker than you otherwise would, which might even make a 3-day completion possible.

 

Speaking of which, something I have noticed since reaching Atmosphere X a couple of days ago is that the small boxes now appear to be dropping far fewer tier 3, 4 & 5 items than they were while I was building up the tree/yard/etc.

 

Now, to be fair, I don't know if that's just my imagination (I'm not QB and I haven't been keeping a spreadsheet of which box dropped which items) or if it's simply a change of luck, or even if it's something that's part of the event 'as intended', it just seems like I'm now getting a lot more boxes with only tier 1 & 2 items in than I did before reaching level X.

This is not even possible so you miscalculated. 86 boxes have at the very least 21.5k gold in it.

No, it's NOT a scam, it's called "gambling" (despite WG's repeated protestations to the contrary), and you've clearly been quite unlucky with the items that dropped this time.

 

But that's the risk you take when you gamble actual cash on the random chance of picking up certain rare high value items; if only more people were severely disappointed like you've been then maybe more and more people would stop buying these bloody awful large gambling boxes every year until WG eventually remove them from sale forever for being unprofitable.

 

Unfortunately, as long as there are too many people with too much money/credit/overdraft and not enough common sense and/or self-control, WG are going to continue to rake in huge bundles of actual cash from these people, some of whom may not necessarily be able to afford to buy these boxes but buy them anyway because they just have to have the latest premium tank or other rare shiny item at any cost.

 

At this point WG are nothing more than an enabler in denial, they willingly provide the temptation to gamble to everyone, including certain 'at risk' groups, and then they dare to hold their hands up and repeatedly attempt to not only justify the large gambling boxes inclusion in-game, but also deny the gambling problem is in anyway caused by them, instead attempting to deflect the blame entirely onto parents and people with actual serious gambling issues.

 

Well that's frankly unacceptable WG, you are the ones providing these boxes with the low random chance of winning certain rare high value items, you are the ones who have the ability to control whether the large boxes go on sale or not, and in what form those boxes are sold, you are the ones who could make the large boxes only drop guaranteed items thereby making them less of a gamble, but, once again, the only thing you really care about is making as much money off your community as quickly as you can, even if it means your company's already shaky reputation sinks down to the subterranean levels of EA/Bethesda/Blizzard/Ubisoft/et al. in the process.

 

And let's not forget, if even one of WoT's most popular community contributors is willing to make a video in successive years calling WG out on this gambling box mess by accurately describing these boxes as a form of gambling, that right there is another pretty damning indictment.

 

And all this on the back of the recent/ongoing Bundesliga sports betting event in WoT which actually IS gambling just like you'd find in any online or highstreet bookmakers, which WG are studiously ignoring any complaints from the community about because they full well know that they are completely in the wrong for even thinking of including such an event in this game.

I have a good idea. Fill in all levels 1-4 decorations and then use antiduplicator for that atmosfera (Christmas, New Year..) random decor and get all lvl 5 decorations cheap :)

Is there a reason why the camo rewards for the 2019 holiday ops album are locked to Tier 8 premiums & Tier 10 tanks only?

 

I seem to remember the 2018 reward camo's were also locked in this way when first released for the 2018 holiday ops event, but for the following year (and this year too) they were made available to all tiers. This being the case, why wasn't the same thing done with the 2019 camo's?

+1, 

 

Its mathematically impossible. Even 21.5k gold is like 1 in a million chance, even less if you ask me. 
The OP is lying or hugely exaggerating. 
I got the first 25 boxes, and got less gold than what i would buy in the shop with 40€. Not by much, but still. of course i got prem days, credits, decorations, 1 tier 6 tank, 3d styles, female commander. 

All in all, it was mediocre, but not a steal in any case. .

In the past recruiting the female crew members from this event has had an expiry date, which was usually a little while after the event ended.

 

But to be honest it's usually better to at least recruit them, if not actually put them in a tank, sooner rather than later in case something unforeseen happens that stops you playing for a little while or because you simply forget about them until it's too late.

Each large box contains 250 gold by default, thus 86 boxes multiplied by 250 gold is 21500 gold.

Though I'd be very surprised if skylinegtr92 didn't get some extra gold on top of that basic amount in addition to the other random chance items he won.

Usually, if you don't see any dates near your recruits avatar in barracks, that means that there's no time limit on recruiting them. :)

It is as easy as before, but you need a lot more money.

For completing the Large Decoration Collection, you receive the following rewards: Christmas Tree Decoration. What is it, where is it?

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.

 

I'm at Festive Level 8 at the moment. To reach Festive Level 10 do I just need to fill all 18 slots with level V ornaments or do I also need all 4 big decorations?

It does feel a little tougher this year to complete the collections.

I stand by the comment I made last year or maybe the year before there should be one mission that is repeatable with no daily limit.

Set a reasonable condition have it drop 1 small box.

Then if someone really wants to put in the effort they can keep getting decorations.

Level 10 only level 5 ornaments. If you also finish the 4 big decorations you will get more % credits etc.
