Sadly I lack respect for the value of money nowadays... So I just went bonkers on the Christmas gifts figuring Its good value for the future... Well... At first it is, then they get you hooked and they lower the value per box by removing the winchance for each tank that you already rolled! So every time you roll a tank, the value of the upcomming box becomes less... 

Ill explain how I figured this out...

No respect for money... I started out bought 75 Loot boxes, within 12 boxes I had got both the tier 8 tanks that people want! Lucky ME! 

But then I noticed I did not roll ANY duplicate tanks at all this year... Strange... Bad luck I guessed at first!!

So I bought another 75 boxes figured I can always use the gold since it is good value for money considering I will get 10000-12000 gold if I get a duplicate tier 8... 

BUT!! It seems Wargaming this year only lets you roll for a tank ONCE. Ocne you got a tank, you cant win it again(and get the gold) So the value actually goes down the more boxes you buy.... 

This is a system that is not legal when you use real money. Sure they can do it with an ingame currency like silver. But they can not legally do it with a gambling system that you buy with real money. They are [edited]you over .... Literally! 

I've created a ticket and I think everyone that already bought alot of boxes for the "gold-value" but got [edited] should do the same... 

I might even consider sending a laywer to bash them because... When I get [edited]... I get [edited]... The issue is not the money... The issue I have is that their system is rigged and that [edited] me off badly.

So if you already have the premium tank you will get gold, but ONLY once!!!

...and yet some players in another thread about what was in the boxes rolled the same tank twice and got the Gold instead.

It appears you gambled and it didn't pay off and now you're upset.

As for the 'lawyer' nonsense....been hearing that for years, no one has ever, but do be the first in a hopeless case.

If you rolled a tank, you have already won.

 

If you flop a Royal flush, you won't see another one in a long time (probably).

Except that skill4ltu showed during a stream that you can get duplicate tanks, even for the tier 8s.

You just got unlucky, get over it.

You want to pay several thousands of euros/dollars to sue a company that will sack you just by showing the court judge the policy YOU have signed?

 

Somewhere it probably says they can make changes and do what the want after you agree to the policy once or something along that line...

Cyprus is EU actually...so it does have to follow laws any EU country has to follow and in terms of fraud/scam, it does not matter where in the world you sit, all you gotta do is to find a decent lawyer over there.
