So if I buy 75 boxes for 100€, I get (minimum) 250 gold each, right? That's only 75*250=18750. If I buy gold just by itself in the shop, I get 30395 for the 100€.

Is the rest that's going to be in the boxes actually going to amass to 11645 gold (that would be 41,18€ if bought just like that)? If I get super extra unlucky and always only get 1 day of premium in each box, I get 18750 gold + 75 days of premium.

90 days cost 27,45€, I'd be 15 days short and paid 13€ more.

TL;DR: worst case scenario spending 100€

75 boxes: 75*250 gold + 75*1 day of premium = **18750 gold + 75 days of premium** for 99,99€

shop: **21450 gold** for 72,41€ **+ ****90 days if premium** for 27,45€

So you'd be 15 days of premium and 2700 gold short.

Can someone explain to me how the boxes always contain at least their own value? Did I get some numbers wrong or something? To me right now it looks like you'll get super f'ed if you're unlucky all the way through. I really considered buying that bundle but now I'm hesitating a lot, to be honest. Please, someone, show me where I made a mistake in my thoughts and calculations.

Edit: the smallest bundle barely makes a net positive: 3 boxes for 6€, 750 gold is 3,28€, 3 days of premium is 2,85€, so you'd be just about at 6,13€. And that's only because buying premium time and gold in that small amount is ridiculously expensive

Edit 2: the first edit made me think: are those boxes valued by themselves not as a bundle if bought so? I mean as if you bought everything one by one? You'd make a big net positive if you buy 75 boxes as a 100€ bundle and compare it to single purchases for gold and premium days!

That would make 75/2*500 = 18750 gold for 2,25€ per transaction = 84,38€ + 75 * 1 day of premium for 1,09€ per transaction = 81,75€; so that would make 166,13€). If that's true, the entire loot box thing would look more like scam or false advertisement to me than anything else. I know that this is the worst case scenario but there will be players having this much bad luck and the boxes are sold as *"always being worth their price"* and this doesn't look like *always* to me at all.

**PS:** I want to be this fair, after complaining about the possibly terrible value:

I opened 75 (magic) boxes (for the amazing tangerine camo) and got the following (with the cheapest possible prices as well, since I was complaining about that so much; rounded values): **26k gold** = 87 Euros

**50 days of premium** = 27 Euros (14 days x3 + 7days x1)

3D-Styles: Obj 140, Obj 430U, AMX 13 105, T110E4, JPE100, E100 (value is not really 6k gold, but they're nice)

Sexton I, Bretagne Panther, Sherman Firefly, Panzer III K (not going to play them ever, I guess, but there you go)

And in the wonderful, beloved and amazing box number 48: **Obj 703-II** = 40 Euros usually

So all in all I got **157 Euros worth of stuff that's worth it for me** plus some low tier premiums and 3D-styles for 100€
