Why would OP break the festive atmosphere before the last round of missions?

While trying to finish the Chinese collection I got 7 Tier V Dragon Garlands in a row, when I only need the other one. What a waste of shards. I was pissed.  I have 3 of the cammos, but I'm not sure if I'll have enough shards now to get the 4th. I need 1 Tier V traditional bulb, and that might take 15 tries at 1440 shards a pop with my luck to get.

You get more than your money's worth from buying boxes, not exactly gambling now is it?

 

True dat!

Maybe we don't stuff Micky D's in our food hole for a week or two and then go buy some premium boxes? Oh ya, it's all about how you spend your money :bajan:

So for the modern collection all I need is tier V / "PanzerKampCandy". I've used their stupid radio thing to make one and guess what.....

3 (THREE) times in a row it only makes tier V / "Christmas Stocking". 

 

That's one of three ornaments, right?  So the chance of that specific ornament appearing 3 times in a row is (1/3)^3, or 1/27. And there was a 1/27 chance of the OTHER ornament you didn't need popping up three times in a row.  So the probability you would have this complaint is 2/27, about 7%.

 

That's not really long odds. It is bound to happen to lots of players.  I was in a similar situation crafting a Russian ornament, and saw the same one (I didn't want) FOUR times in a row.  It's just bad luck.

If you think I'm going to pay real cash for gift boxes to GAMBLE and try to get this done WoT you are crazy.
I pass.... Take your gambling and stick it.

 

QuickyBaby was right about WoT gambling....

 

RANDOMLY PICKED THE WRONG ITEM AGAIN FOR THE 4TH 5TH 6TH TIME!

PLEASE TELL ME AGAIN THIS IS "RANDOM"AND NOT SHOPPING FOR BOX SALES!!! I'M NOT BUYING YOUR BOXES TO FINISH THE COLLECTION WoT AND THAT'S NOT RANDOM!

 

 

4TH TRY

5TH TRY

 

6TH TRY

Well OP, at least your not alone.  I think I've gotten at least 8 of those candy canes and 6 stockings, but no red laterns.... I would give you a candy cane if I could!

i think what they should consider next year is the last weekend of the event next year, figure out how to allow trading ornaments.  after all of you are only really going to get camo out of it then it shouldnt be a problem

I feel your pain. I tried like 10 times in a row to get a tier 4 star from Modern Christmas (there are 2 different tier 4 stars). Every single time it gave me the same item i already had.

And i always used all the modifiers so it just had to choose between those 2, but the damn machine wanted to troll me and make me waste my more than 3000 fragments/points/whatever currency you get by breaking decorations.

Either that or build into the RNG a stepping down process.

Example:

1st try = Full RNG

2nd try = 50% RNG reduction

3rd try = 80% RNG reduction

4th try = 95% RNG reduction

5th try = No RNG

I truly was enjoying this years Christmas event until this decoder RNG pile of crap thing came into play! All of that hard work playing for NOTHING!!!!

I was just ONE decoration away from having the modern special paint job but 7 trys later with your stupid decoder and I'm so pissed off that I will not log on until the Christmas event is over. What a joke!

I crafted 6 or 7 of the same level 4 item that I already had before I got the last level 4 I needed. Then I crafted 5 level 5 items before I got the one I needed. Then I was down to 2 pendants with enough for 3 tries. I got 1 that I needed, and then 2 repeats. So now, for the Soviet camo, I am short 1 t-34-85 trinket and nothing else. It's the only camo I wanted. pretty annoying because there's no way to even buy the exact one I wanted. I would pay $5 for the single ornament at this point to get that camo (I think it looks awesome)...but the only option is $6 for a random soviet level 5 ornament...that's a 1/13 chance for each one of those 3...yeah right.
