I'm interested in buying 75 boxes but have read that it was better to buy early in the Holiday Ops rather than later for getting tanks, especially the tier 8's.  I want the gold and premium time which is the primary reason but would be a nice bonus to get a tier 8 or two and maybe a tier five or three.  The only tier 5 or tier 8 tank I have is the Scorpion.  Does anyone have any thoughts or stats on buying late as opposed to buying early?

I think the whole buying boxes earlier on got people more of a chance for premium tanks is just a theory. It's still a good idea to buy the boxes now since premium time and gold alone is worth more than what you pay and any tanks are good bonuses. It go for it

I spent about $60 in the beginning and about to drop another $99. Got a bunch of tanks, gold, skins and and other goodies in my first run, but no t8 heavies (have the skorp, rolled another one from box and don't care much for the def/is3a). Shooting mostly for prem time and gold now - first run gave me about 20 days of prem and enough gold to free xp the brit td line from t5 to t10 and then some. Don't see how those rng boxes are any different now than earlier. Anyhow, I'll take screenies of every one of the new boxes and either do a separate post with data or just add it to one of the bigger threads/databases on the subject. 

 

EDIT: Here is the breakdown after x75 pruchase: http://forum.worldof...bundle-results/

Tldr: Very much worth buying.

It's best to buy the loot boxes early because you can enjoy the benefits of Festive Atmosphere and completing ornament collections (essentially full-time free boosters for credits, experience, etc) for a longer period of time.  I doubt it affects your chances one or the other to get a tank out of it.

I think the whole "buy boxes early to have a better chance of getting tanks" is a player tinfoil hat theory along with "Wargaming stealth nerfed my ammunition".

If you need gold, the loot boxes are the best value. Anything else you get is gravy. You will get M4 Improveds (gag) - better yet you get their gold value in gold.

One of my most common tank drops has been the M4 Improved.

I just opened 25 boxes. Ended up with 31,850 Gold, 1,600,000 credits, 5 garage slots and 6 days Prem Acct. The gold was very useful back when the advent tanks were available for gold.

I already got the Simon Claws and the four skins and I have the IS-3A already from back when it was first sold.

Here's what my 25 boxes contained, excluding ornaments:

500 Gold

Doesn't matter when you buy them, it's all the same. (random)

   I bought 75 boxes yesterday and got everything except the lefh and is3a and claus... The 4 skins, the 220 and defender and turan... Claus I had gotten in 3 boxes a few days ago. Ended up with nearly 35k gold (lot of repeats on the turan and 220) and 65 or so days of prem time.... VERY worth buying boxes imo.
