Just getting on my tinfoil hat here give me a moment... ok lets go. Right so just running a quick "survey" of both the method by which players who won all the cool tanks and stuff bought their loot boxes and the actual type of lootboxes themselves just to see if there's any predictable pattern to exploit here in this "random" drop before I pick up a few myself, just to give myself(and vicariously other who have not yet bought any boxes) perhaps a better drop rate chance(If any)

 

So then. Did you buy your boxes from the WoT Website or did you buy them from the in-game garage option?

 

Also, which type of box gifted the best returns?

 

Obviously, if you got really bad stuff and no tanks or a pretty poor return for the money spend, don't bother answering this we're purely focusing on what gifted the best and most stuff!! :)

 

Thanks.

I only bought 25 magic boxes through the game website so can't comment on others, dropped the e75 and all the lower tiers bar the firefly, all the skins bar the jpze100 and 7.75k gold so deffo worth it for me. All 6 of the first boxes were 250g and 1 dsy prem though so was worried at the beginning.

You need an option for only bought one type - no comparison is possible if this is the case.

I bought 25 Lunar boxes, got two tier 8 prems, one tier 6, one 5, one 3, and one 2.

 

Last year I also bought Lunar boxes, but only 11, and got two tier 8 prems, and three tier 5.

 

I'm lucky. Happy to be. :trollface:

 

The boxes' contents are all random, so I'm not getting the best drops out of Lunar New Year boxes just because they're Asia-themed and contain the prettiest decorations, nahh it's not that. :trollface:

Bought 25 Lunar boxes. No T8's, as I expected.

I did get the E-100 skin, Obj 140 skin and crew member though. Which surprised me a lot.

Also the T2 wheelie x3 and a Firefly that I already had.

Not really, if he was only after the gold anyway then he did really well. If he was fishing for a particular tank, well, not so lucky.

Not a single tier 8 tank after $120 worth of loot boxes, I'd say that's unlucky either way, I suppose we neither know how much actual gold he got so he can be unlucky on that also.

Yeah, it is unlucky, but that's why you don't buy boxes for tanks. Buy them for the gold, if you want the tank just be patient until WG sell it in the shop. They like money so you know they're going to at some point.

I budgeted for 150 boxes, brought 75 to start and got all tanks first in that batch. Then brought another few 11 sets and got everything 44 days premium and over 100000 in gold.....

 

had a few times I got the tier 8s again so just got the gold

Yeah of course, but not everyone will or can be that patient which is sadly what WG is exploiting right now.

Of course, I also hope there isn't some cap on how many T8 tanks WG feel they should gift. It stands to reason(just fix that tinfoil had back up again sorry)... it stands to reason that at the very start is when you have the best chance of getting these T8 tanks because.

 

1. You want people getting them early and thus "weeeee hey guys I got it!!!" sort of talk on forums etc which will serve to encourage others to buy them or more of them.

 

2. Once X amount of T8 tanks are won, a preset quota, WG really won't want any more of them to be gained by the playerbase since that would be TOO many T8 tanks given away, and so you reduce the drop rate of these tanks over time. 

 

Those this makes sense or totally tinfoil hat? I mean, at the start, the drop rate might be high, like 1 in 25 boxes but as more and more tanks are won and a certain figure WG may have come up with before the event is reached, these drop rates get dramatically reduced?

And what happens when it gets leaked that’s how the odds work?

I bought 25 New Year box's from the game website.

 

In the very 1st box I opened I got the 703(talk about lucky)

 

Then received:

Sexton, 7k in gold, 2 weeks prem time, 2 skins, the special commander, and not sure about credits because I was still in shock after opening the 1st box haha....And enough  decorations to reach level 9

If it was true, which is totally tinfoil hat as of now, how would it get leaked though? Only WG are in possession of such details.

One disgruntled or loose tongued employee is all it takes.
