Answers for three and four could do with some work considering answers for one and two.

You poll is shiet as when you picked "I didn't buy any Gift Boxes and I'm sure I won't buy any this year!" you still forced to answer the next questions which makes no sense at all and will distort your poll.

No... You must cast your vote in each question of the poll.

Yes... I now added two more answers for people who didn't buy boxes. 

Edit: somehow the changes weren't saved, but they're added now. Apologies!

Now I’m confused as I often am. Questions three and four still can’t be answered if you bought no lootboxes.

How many Gift Boxes did you buy?

 

100

 

Block Quote

Did you buy more Gift Boxes than planned?

 

No, I was set on that amount before it started. But there is a possibility that I will buy some more in the last days. That there is.

 

Block Quote

Are you happy with the content of the Gift Boxes?

 

No, I was quite disappointed with getting less than 40k gold, 68 days of premium and one tier 8.

 

Block Quote

Do you only buy Gift Boxes for yourself or also for others?

 

Only myself this year. Was going to gift my little brother some on his birthday the 14th but he already got all the good stuff from the few boxes my other brother gave him. :angry:

Nah I like 'em. But yeah some transparency would be nice.

Last year, I bought 11 boxes... Got the Defender, IS-3A, KV-220-2, M4 Improved, Turan III, and a bunch of gold and prem time. I got very lucky.

 

This year, I bought 25 boxes, more than last, because I could afford to... Got the Obj 703 II, E75 TS, Bret. Panther, Pz III K, Sexton I, 4 3D skins, and a bunch of gold and prem time. I got very lucky yet again.

 

Both times, I bought Lunar boxes. Both times, I got tanks I didn't already have (earned Progetto and SU-130PM in marathons).

 

I decide how many I'll buy before buying any, and stick to it no matter what I get. I won't gamble because I'm sensible. What I get is what I get. Like my great-grandmother used to say: "Let be what want be"

First I thought it wasn't possible to buy 24 boxes (just like 10), but now I see I am wrong. It is completely possible to buy 3 boxes 8 times in a row. Why anyone would do that is beyond me but who knows it happens.. :teethhappy:

It's easy to stick to your initial plan if you got more than expected. But tell that to someone who spend €200 for 150 boxes and didn't get a single tier VIII premium...

Well it’s almost like the hook that makes it gambling. How’d have thought that as WG are obviously only doing this as a favour for their players.

You may have 8 friends, or 7 friends and buy 3 for yourself.  Unlikely I know but it's a possibility. :P

Bought 100, expected gold and premium time, got gold and premium time, plus tier 8 premiums. 

 

Perfectly fine with and the whole concept, don't think they are gambling and think they represent good value for people who buy stuff in game throughout the year anyway. 

 

Also think people are adults and if they buy too many then that is entirely their fault.
