So, I'll admit I play mostly for fun, but is it me or is getting National Blueprint Fragments going to be like finding a needle in a haystack.  I have plenty of Universal Fragments, but without National Fragments, their useless.

I didn't have any national fragments for a long time,but with tank rewards starting in june, I was able to start getting some, and if felt I get a few more every so often.  Just have to be patient.

It depends on how many tanks you have unlocked in a given tree...

This has been an issue with a lot of people, myself included. Other than the very rare random drop, the only way I have gotten national blueprints is through the missions, like the Twitch care packages and the Czeck marathon.

^this.

For me it is the universals that are the limiting factor. Before this recent CZ event I had more national than universal in my depot.

According to WG's website the national fragments are NOT related to researched tanks. If you get a fragment for a tank you researched, it flips to either national or universal. The website implies a 50/50 split, but that's clearly not the case. Nowhere does it say that the number of researched tanks affects the chance of it turning national. Seems that there are two groups of players - people who get mostly national and people who get almost all universal. Nobody seems to get just the right balance.

They were coming in...ok.  Probably at a stingy but right rate.

 

Last couple weeks though I haven't seen any though I have seen tank specific ones.

I guess I'm crazy odd.  I’ve had pretty balanced distribution.  I also just got my tier X Czech unlocked, so now I’m at the needing money stage...

In general it seems to swing whether the player has a lot of tanks unlocked or fewer.  Some with fewer tanks unlocked have a shortage of nation fragments and those with many tanks unlocked a shortage of universals.  For the newer player with an excess of universals now it will work out in the long run.

 

I have only used a few so far.  Once when I accidentally sold a tank short of elite.  The German mid tier tanks have so many similar looks and names and with same camo ...well I did a face palm. There are three lines I will do in the future where I may skip a tier 7 or 8 tank entirely, but I don't think my 200 universals will be enough.  No sense in using them until I get around to it in case I get more tank specific drops before.

It wasn't scientific but I scanned through a long earlier thread noting what each person complained about.  Throughout those with over 25000 matches tended to be short on universal and those with half that were short on national ones.  There was a distinct trend anyhow.

Opposite problem. Too many national fragments and not enough universal.

So I would subscribe to the theory that many researched tanks lead to higher percentage of national fragments.

I never expected they wouldn't be somewhat rare. Still have got more than enough to use where they really come in handy though.

All tanks are researched except British (new lights) and French (wheeled)

I haven't found one national fragment through random drops; only ones from the Czech missions.

If they start having more missions which aren't too difficult that drop national fragments, then the shortage of national fragments will become less of an issue.
