Sorry to burst your bubble but their boxes were nowhere near gambling. Yes you had a chance at a premium tank but the gold, premium time, and credits is what made them valuable. You always got more than you paid for. 

 

So they list the percent chance of getting for example, premium tanks, the specific chance to get each amount of credits and gold? Dang.

But not necessarily things you would have bought at those prices if there wasn't a chance of getting  something better.  The system still works on the same mentality, just covers it's back by giving "equivalent gold value" even when that "equivalent gold value" is a bad deal. 

 

*shrug*  probably still acceptable under laws and regulations as they stand now.

Yep WG is smart when it comes to taking your money and getting you addicted to them taking it as well.

Yup. When threads started popping up with people complaining about it, likening it to something like Overwatch's loot boxes, others broke down what they got out of theirs and calculated the costs if you had bought the stuff out of the store. Despite that proof people were still saying it's a scam. 

 

I think because not all got that Type 59.

Or no premium tank at all. Yet they got more than their monies worth in premium time, credits, and gold.

The boxes were actually some of the best deals from a gold per dollar perspective. Even if you got nothing but the gold. They are actually some of the best ways to get gold during that time of year.

I didn't get a good gold/dollar value.   Had a lot of credits in the boxes I bought. Now, if you convert the credits to WG's gold value,  then yeah,  I got a decent deal.  But, does anyone think WG's gold value for credits is reasonable?

What does WOT have planned for Christmas this year? Are you going to do the boxes with the varying nations? How about some rare camo designs for the players who help keep this game "free" for the rest?????

Probably another garbage tier 2 that i will sell for the garage space.

Going to have to buy the defender if it comes out.....

every average player and lower in existence has one for tier 8 strongholds, and they are so damn pay-to-win durable that those basic [edited]teams can give skilled teams that are defender-less a difficult time

I still have over 125k gold from last year and I din't spend all that much so it was a good deal.

That is satisfactory for U.S. law, but overseas it may not be enough. 

The thing that makes this suspect is that they're random chance, and you might not get a thing you want. When children are concerned that means a lot more.

It's teaching them a valuable lesson that you don't always get what you want.

While a valuable life lesson, that doesn't make it any less problematic in court.
