Anyone know when or if this event will start or if it will be repeated this year?

There will definitely be an Xmas event. They released a teaser trailer today. Last year the Festive Atmosphere stuff started on the 15th.

Why would you want a PZ II J?

I just do. It's like a TOG. Is like a 430U all you want?

I don't look for the gift box thing to come back. Sine most of the world thinks loot boxes are gambling, most games have stopped doing them.

The boxes always gave more value than the cost usually waaaaaay more value. It's not gambling.

Since the return on your money is at least equal and probably 99% time worth more, I would counter that this is a digital raffle where everyone wins.  Last time I checked gambling does not have that feature in it's definition nor reality.

 

Another quality post from garbage debunked.

Same here waiting for the loot boxes (if they were the same as the last year's), so that I can get gold to buy any of the Advent tanks.

That doesn't stop it from being gambling.

 

Not that I have anything against it, I love spending tons of money on boxes in WOWS.

Not understanding a concept does not give you the right to define your own definition.

Gambling involves risk. There is no risk. You either get more value than you spend or a lot more value than you spend. That there is also a chance to get mega value via a prem tank drop is called a bonus

^ this.  WG boxes are more like buying a box of cereal that might have a decoder ring inside.  You buy it for the cereal and its just nice if you get the decoder ring.  If you buy 400 boxes of cereal trying to collect the set then thats kinda on you.  Getting the $ value and more in gold before the 'extra stuff' makes it not really a gamble compared to loot boxes that say cost 10 bucks and might give you a 1 dollar cosmetic, or otherwise give you things of no value or use to you.
