Level 10 Xmas "atmosphere" was very easy to attain this year, so after the initial grind I am now accumulating the shards.

 

What's the best way to use them?

 

I know I can complete the collections of the two past years, as well as try to complete the current ones to get a number of hideous styles - except a couple which are not hideous.

I also know I could craft large decorations to get more bonuses.

 

Is there anything else I could do with shards?

Large decorations.

At the last day of the event do remember to crush all the rest of your decorations from the tree and get the most out of your styles. Preferably after your last battle. 

Last years styles looked better than this years, imho. Two of them actually looks rather good (Chinese and New Year)

But last years fits only on premium 8 and tier10
they were a bit sucky
2017 was better
this years are "free for all" wich is quite good!

I saw this "large decoration" option for shards. What do they do or offer exactly?

The previous years only worked on tier X and tier VIII premiums but they extended them to all tanks.  I have not checked last years but would assume it was the same.

Considering the price of the 3rd and 4th one, and if you want the other reward camos too. Wait. I got 3 so far in small boxes. And I will just farm shards now and get what I lacked later vs now.

Increase the credit income bonus by 2.5% each. Tho no extra bonus to get all 4.

The 2018 sets were locked too for about 7-8 months before it did appear for tier 6 and up. And now suddenly for all tiers. 2019 is still locked to tier 8 prems and tier X it seems.

They fill the large decoration slots you need to fill.

Your first goal should be to fill all the decoration slots first to get your max credit bonus.

Then keep earning shards/small boxes until the last day, crush them all, then create the specific ones you need to fill the collections for more bonuses.

However to create those last few decorations you will need to use the charges to not create duplicates. So, DO NOT USE any charges until that final day.

I already got those :)

 

I guess they got so many complaints in the past about the rigged large hadron decorider in the past years that they completely took out any challenge.

Gambling on Decorider attempts =/= challenge.

No, 2019 camos are only for tier8 prems and tier10, it is not the same.

Has this been confirmed? Have a F2P alt referral account and almost have enough shards to get a camo from one of the previous years editions but undecided on which one. And the 2018 camos were locked to certain nations, are they applicable to all now? (Say I like the Soviet New Year camo best, can I apply it to my German tank?)

Once you done large decs start filling up your collections, keep the antidupolicator charges for last few

Still locked to certain nations but not to tiers.  They even fixed it on the SU-100Y eventually.

Tbh... I kinda liked the way it looked on that one on the hull. Weird as it was.

I completed the collection from last year for Tempered Glass. It still says only Premium VIII and X vehicles.
