So I noticed this today, and got an unlocked one right away, and since then, nothing.. there is some sort of visual countdown but i'm not seeing it anywhere in the game, if its the yellow lock, thats discouraging because it doesn't visually work... anyone know if there is an actual countdown somewhere.

Yeah, ditto. Not sure what constitutes "merit" either.

speaking of MM...congrats warfailing on the most useless update I've seen in a long time while your horrendous game crippling MM mechanic goes unchanged for yet another month.  gg

I got one immediately. After TEN games (and only two victories) I recieved a second. It seems I vastly overestimated the drop rate of the boxes.

Is this some kind of joke? It says play a battle get a merit reward. But you don't get one after every battle? They may have wanted to make that clear, because I had no idea that it was going to be totally random. Ranked on the top of team 4 games in a row and only got a drop on my first battle of the night. Clearly this has nothing to do with MERIT. Not really surprised though. Another wargaming fail......

Yeah, it's Merited in the same way the US is supposedly a Meritocracy, which we all know it is not.

 

 

Got 3 so far.

I forgot one thing so (edit) :)

After each battle Tier V-X

You should see above your missions area a Gold Padlock, and under it which box you are working on.

As you 'advance' toward getting the box the lock will get more and more cracks in it, until you get the box 'unlocked'

BUT: Good games/ Bad games really don't seem to make a difference.

 

This is my guess :)

 

Good or Bad, I don't think it matters just the RNG that goes up 2.5% per game until you win, then it resets.

So if you have the worse possible luck it could go 40 battles before you automatically get a box, since it would be 100%

I've also had 4 times I got a box in under 5 battles and once I got a Large box, followed by a small box the next game.

 

This is my history so far, as you can see I started taking better tracking.

Round 1 was all done on the first day (1-5)

Round 2 to this point (just got one) So now on Round 3 Box 4.

 

First Game ever 1
Second Random 17 Games
Third Random 17 Games
Fourth Random 14 Games
#5 Large Box 15 Games
Rd 2 - 1: 10 Games, 1 Cola, x3 Repair Directive, 1 BDR G1 B Blueprint = 15% off
Rd 2 - 2: 6 games, 1 LG First-Aid, x3 Repair Directive, 1 M3G FT = 20%, and 1 Hummel Blueprint = 15%
Rd 2 - 3: 3 games,  1 Auto Fire    , x3 6th sense, 1 Badger, 1 BC 25t AP
Rd 2 - 4: 17 games, 1 First-Aid, 3x steady hand, 1 universal, Foch, Achilles blueprints
Rd 2 - 5: 6 games, 25k coin, 3x food, x5 6 sense, IS-M and Ke-Ni blueprints
Rd 3 - 1: 1 Game, 50K coins, 1 food, x3 optical calibration, 1 Universal blueprint
Rd 3 - 2: 9 Games, 1 Food, x3 Repair Directive, AMX 13 105 blueprint
Rd 3 - 3: 5 Games, 1 food, x3 Natural Cover Directive, Standard B Blueprint Fragment

I actually like the idea of these rewards even though I don't have much use for them. The free consumables are nice but for me, the really grindy bit is with the crews not the vehicles. I wish these things were set up like the loot boxes in WoWS are and you can just track your progress until the next one drops. The randomness of these rewards just seems a bit on the pointless side. I can say that their existence in the game does not make me want to play more matches which IMHO, was the point of putting them in. Since they are randomly dropped with a bit of RNG and I am not a gambler, I pretty much ignore they exist.

Yep, horrible update. This is so stupid after coming in Top 5 for 10 games and top 3 for most of those, no boxes. 
This is not a merit reward it is a random, don't shoot your team mate reward.

It is always (ALWAYS) nice to get some random gift, goodie, bonus while playing any game.  So these RANDOMLY delivered items have ZERO, NADA, NOTHING to do with "merit" -- unless you count playing the game as merit.

 

This is the ultimate participation award: You participate enough -- you get a reward.  Yes it really is that simple.

 

I do have questions (and doubt anyone but the developers or CC have the correct answers):  

1. How are the blueprint fragments generated?  Choices:

  • A tank is drawn at random from ALL researchable tanks.  Check to see if the player has researched that tank: Yes- create universal or national fragment or No: Apply the fragment the appropriate tank?
  • OR
  • All possible fragments are thrown in a bucket, one is selected at random, then do checks and steps as in first bullet?

 

And in both approaches -- are fragments (or tanks) from vehicles that have been researched already available for selection again -- or are they eliminated from the pool (thus increasing the chances of a player getting a "useful" blueprint fragment instead of a universal or national)?

 

EDIT: BTW -- my drops came at games 2, 9, 24, 28, 40, 50, and 51 -- so very random indeed.

Awards of Merit are for tiers V and higher. You have only reached tier IV according to your profile.  Which is surprising as you have had an account since 2015.  Are you just coming over from World of Warplanes or World or War Ships?  In any case, since the latest update this whole Award of Merit has been going on.  Look on the Front Page of the WoT site and check the news out, you will find a video of it in there.  Or look here on other threads similar in nature and you can probably find it linked.

Couple things:

1. If you don't see the padlock at all -- that's something wrong, you need to file a ticket, reload the game, something

2. My average has been 9.4 games to get a "reward" -- no pattern -- shortest, back-to-back... longest 24 games... 

3. Lock cracks -- as far as I can tell the lock is either whole or showing cracks -- I cannot detect any variation in the "amount" of cracks.

4. The lock seems to crack consistently at 5-6 games -- the period after that before a participation reward is unpredictable

 

Ok that was several things...

Well I guess I will be putting a ticket in because I have not had any type of padlock for 2 days I have not received any type of reward for merit and I've not received any blueprints for over 2 days I'm going to do that game Integrity check first before I put in a ticket

Are you playing tier 5 and up?

 

FYI the gold padlock starts to crack and the closer it gets to breaking the larger the cracks.

Can the Reward for Merit be turned off? It has become a PITA!
