Edit: The value guide in its initial state is here, for those wondering: https://www.13disciple.stream/18--19-loot-box-guide.html

 


 

​Hey folks! 13Disciple and I are doing a value analysis about the Christmas boxes. We announced our plans to gather data to estimate drop-rates from the boxes a few days ago, but now that the boxes are actually out, I'm making a second post as a reminder.

 

Please post your results in here, although if you post them in the old Thread, that's fine as well. (And a big thank you to everyone who posted their results so early in the other Thread before I even got a chance to make this one. :teethhappy:)

 

As a quick reminder, you can provide the data in any of these ways:

  • Screen capture (Record through Bandicam, then upload to YouTube)
  • Screenshots (Just screenshot each opened box, then dump them into an Imgur album by selecting them all and dragging them onto the wegpage)
  • Notepad / spreadsheet - You can just post the raw numbers, or create a Google Sheets page and share the link

 

Thank you very much for your help everyone! :)


 

Edit: 

 

One interesting thing that several people had brought up, and screenshots / videos seem to confirm this based off of initial observations, are that the secondary ornaments (After the guaranteed Level 5) you receive aren't actually random, with the vast majority of them being Level 1's, and the second most frequent ornament being Level 2.

 

I'll take a closer look into this and determine what the drop rates for the other ornaments were, but that's definitely something we had overlooked.

75 boxes

36150 gold

5300000 credits

64 days premium time

all 4 skins

Santa commander

4 Kv-220's

2 Turans

2 M4's

(8 garage slots)

enough decorations to completely finish the set that gives you 50% crew XP(by far the best bonus) which I hope to put to good use since I have a much longer Xmas holiday this year.

 

Not nearly as much of a haul as last year, got way more credits than last year, less gold and way less premium tanks, got all of them last year except the Skorpion. Good deal on gold(about 50% more than just buying it) though I didn't really need it but it will get used since I always retrain crew for gold.

  • Extra gold =           5,750
  • Total of just gold =                24,500
  • Tank compensation:
    • KV-220 (1500 x 3) =     4,500

75 Christmas boxes

 

KV 220 x 5

Turan III

M4 Improved

Defender

All 4 tier 10 skins

34,450 gold

6 garage slots

61 Days premium

I'd say I got more than my money's worth seeing as the cost of the boxes was equal to 25,000 gold.


With the extra gold I bought the T50 Prototype that is on sale in the Advent Calendar today.

$200 spent.  Total value from 150 boxes:  Approx $650  (accepting that all vehicle and garage slot values given were at 50% of purchase price).  As the crew member and 3d styles do not have an associated value they were not included in the calculation.

May I suggest starting another 'value' thread for people who bought boxes after a week has passed / after the next hotpatch? I remember some complaining last year that the first day purchasers got more than people who waited

Opened 75 Lunar boxes...

M4 Improved (x2)

Turan III (x2) - Already had one

Kv-220-2 (x3)

Lefefefe (x2)

E-25 (x3) - Already had one

Defender - Already had 252u, didn't really want this...

Skins for the T-57 heavy, Grille 15, IS-7, and BC 25T. 

39 days of premium

~2 million credits (didn't check beforehand) 

44.8k gold

+Santa crew member

+Enough ornaments to get me to atmosphere level 5 and have some left over. 

 

I guess I pulled on the shorter end of things, slightly below average I would say considering its the first day of boxes. Nice to get all the low tiers and at least 1 tier 8 + all the other treats. A very nice Christmas indeed. 

-I had recorded it in Action but it hurt my soul to find out it crashed once I ended the recording... 12 minutes of good footage wasted.

We plan on updating our data as we continue to get results throughout the event, and we'll make sure our data is sorted by date.

I paid $160 for 4 x25 of each type Large Loot Boxes (100 total).

 

I received the following:

  • 90,890 Gold (roughly $360 worth)
  • 65 Days of Premium
  • Simon Claws Commander
  • Special Skins
    • Grille 15
    • T-57
    • IS-7
    • BC 25 t
  • 4,000,000 Silver
  • Premium Tanks - New
    • KV-220-2
    • Defender
    • Teran III
    • Skorp G
    • IS-3A
    • 105leFH18B2
  • 14 Garage Slots

 

I didn't track the ornaments or anything.  However I did have enough to get to the Level 10 Garage Decor (all Lvl V Ornaments) with 188 left over of various level to crush into over 23k Gems(?).  Which allowed me to finish the first Scrapbook of 2109.  I hope that makes sense...lol.

 

So, including that Simon Claws Commander, I also acquired all 4 Female Crewmen.

 

Did they make it towhere you can mix male/female crewmen with BIA/SIS all work?  Used to nullify if you mixed them. 

 

***EDIT: Added Garage Slots - 14.12.18***

100 boxes, 25 of each.


 

Gold:72,200

DoP:83

Vehicle:M4 Improved - M4 Imp to gold X3 - LeF to gold X5 - Skorp G - E25 to gold - IS3A - KV220 to gold - Obj 252U Def - Obj 252U Def to gold - Turan III to gold X4 -

Skins for T-57, B-C and Skorp G

 

Figure they are selling https://na.wargaming.net/shop/wot/gold/6749/ right now for the same price with only 7,500 gold, 12,000,000 credits and 90 days of premium all for 33% discount value, I'd say this was a better purchase buying boxes.

They removed SIS some time ago, and replaced it with BIA.  Mixed gender crews are a go(which means I've basically been using females as commanders for the free 6th sense.

Oh nice!  I didn't notice that.  Ok.  Thank you.  Definitely a great idea using the females as commanders for free 6th.  I like it.  :)
