Look at your budget and decide beforehand on specific amount of lootboxes. Don't keep buying if you don't get what you wanted, because chances are you will just waste more money and not win, like in real gambling. If it makes you feel better, buy some lootboxes now and some near the end of the entire "event".

 

Don't buy them for tanks which you have really low chance to get, they will be available in shop eventually, even the double barrel tank. Buy the lootboxes for the gold, because you actually get more than buying gold directly from the site and for the thrill of this tiny tiny chance to get something else than gold, not necessarily a good premium tank.

 

And lastly, don't look at other people opening insane amounts of lootboxes because doing that serves no purpose whatsoever. First of all, most "normal"  people (as in, non streamers, non community contributors and non really wealthy people) probably won't get more than 11/25 lootboxes, second - you will just become jealous at other people amount of money/luck, which will force you to spend more money yourself, DON'T DO THAT TO YOURSELF.

 

So tl;dr You should treat lootboxes as buying some gold and some momentary fun, nothing more.

Good advice to not pay attention to CC's lootbox hype. Stuff like this gets to people and makes them do stupid things.

Normal?...so if I buy more...I'm abnormal? I think the sentence would have worked just fine without "normal".:sceptic:

Other than that......good advice.

Maybe I worded this weirdy but I meant average Joe kind of people, like me. :) Nothing wrong with people that purchase more boxes.

Ever heard of gambling addiction Sherlock? Its even worst with OP WG pixel tonks, once you try them you cant escape them, its like catching the fish, once its on the hook  its DONE.

 

EDIT: At WG call it  "random gifting" instead of gambling, but its the same actualy,...:trollface:

Very few players will actually get what they want from the boxes but they are addictive so be careful people!

Essentially excercise some self control and only spend what you can afford?
