As previously announced, here is my value guide.

 

TL;DR:

Loot Boxes this year mirror their value from last year. These are historically and continue to be the most monetarily efficient way to populate your account with gold and premium time (premium time purchased with gold).

 

DO NOT BUY LOOT BOXES WITH THE EXPRESSED PURPOSE OF FISHING FOR A SPECIFIC PREMIUM TANK.

Before you click buy, make sure you answer this question: If I don't get the tank I want am I still going to be happy with this purchase?

 

TL;DR Data:

5.99 bundle ~ 439 gold / USD

19.99 bundle ~ 482 gold / USD

39.99 bundle ~ 548 gold / USD

99.99 bundle ~ 659 gold / USD

 

My drop rates and u/RangingRaptor177 survey of drop rates are both available in the article.

Good to hear, glad they didn't try to raise the price on us.  Seems like the premium drops are similar to last year as well.

 

Thanks for the information.

I was fishing for gold and or premium time at the cost of $5.99. But got one of the best deal there is for $5.99.

 

1000 gold which is around $5.54 if I do the premium shop

Did not get a Premium Time but... got the Obj252U Defender a bonus that made the $5.99 purchase worth it for me.

The most important part.

They're a fantastic value for gold/premium time, I've gotten about $250/300 in that value alone with a $100 purchase.  Last year greatly limited my spending through the year as I'm sure a fair many can coast through a year with the gold/premium one gets.  I've done it again this year, but can almost coast for 2 years now.  It's an excellent deal, as you said, for gold/premium.

 

Keep up the good work, Disciple!

I'm tempted to buy some with this exp conversation and crew retraining sale though i'm worried about the raw gold being less than buying gold by itself, is there a difference between each type of loot box for the rewards?

I got a 75 box package and walked away with 55k gold plus some other small stuff like tanks and prem time.

Interesting Results.  If I've done my math right, based on your 13-Dec chart of 479 boxes, you're looking at about a 1 in 160 chance of a Skorp or Defender,  about a 1 in 96 of a 3A, and about a 1 in 68 chance of an E 25.  Sounds like I hit the jackpot pretty well with both in a Defender and E 25 in 25 boxes.

 

Would really like to see a larger data set, though.  Hopefully more people will help you out.  Which reminds me, does this include the data I provided with a video of the boxes being opened, or were you only using screenshots as confirmation of the data?  Asking in case i do get another set of 11, I'll know which way to go for data confirmation.

I've been bombarded with data, and it's difficult to keep all the sources straight. If you want to PM me your video again I'll be updating the article again next week at some point.
