Hello Everyone!

In the past I've put together guides on the general value of the loot box based on the approximate gold per dollar ratio.

You can find my previous articles here:

 

Holiday Ops 2017 / 2018 Loot Box Value Guide

Holiday Ops 2018 / 2019 Loot Box Value Guide

 

Guide is up:

 

Holiday Ops 2019 / 2020 Loot Box Value Guide

 

I'm preparing to generate a Loot Box Value guide for this years Holiday Ops by the end of this weekend. Hopefully it will help you feel confident whether the boxes will be of good value to you. Previous years have seen this sale become the best gold for dollar value the game ever offers. We will see if this tradition continues in the data.

 

I will be given a small number of boxes as a CC, and will likely purchase at least another 100$ USD worth of boxes. The data isn't enough to have confidence on drop rates. I humbly request those of you out there that are interested in helping me, and the community, to send me your data.

 

The only data I will accept are screen shots of the boxes after opening, or YouTube / VoDs of unboxing, in order to ensure my data is as accurate as possible. If you want to participate please respond to this thread with your youtube or streaming service VoDs (with timestamp if they do not start with the unboxing). I will manually comb the data and record it in my own spreadsheet which I will make available in my next article.

 

For screenshots you can set them in a google drive folder and share just the folder that you've put them in. To take Garage screenshots, simply open your boxes (5 at a time please) and press the print screen button. Rinse Repeat. You can private message me here on the forums, or on Discord and send me your shared link that way. You can find my discord name on the WGNA, Reddit, or my personal Discord.

 

NOTE

It has been hypothesized in past events that the boxes will roll for a tier, and then randomly select a tank that you don't have.

If you could please tell me if you get a duplicate of a tank you already have, while there were other vehicles you didn't we can put this hypothesis to bed.

 

Appreciate all the help!

 

I'll update this post with the guide when it goes live.

Will send you my Twitch VoD (and spreadsheet if you want it) as soon as I open them.  Thanks for the effort you put into this.

 

 

edit: Btw, I'm a professional data analyst.  Just about the absolute last thing I would want to do on my break is to gather, compile and analyze data.  However, if you need any help, just let me know.

Sounds like a worthy goal. I will try to send screenshots of the few boxes I buy.

I expect that I'll be in for a 75 box bundle. I was one of the fortunate Type 59 winners so I'm pretty happy with the results in past years :) 

 

Edit:

I bought the Luna 75 box bundle:

 

Object 703 II

E75 TS

SU-130

Bret Panther

Pz III K

Sexton I

34,500 gold (including gold for a 2nd E75 TS)

3,600,000 silver

48 days premium

I have to Say that I love your avatar image, a good moon moon is always welcome. Second. At least in my experience rng for loot boxes for me have been awful. Just the bare minimum and silver. I did earn a lor40t and a lefh but it was the first year the loot boxes came then the next have been just ornaments, 250 gold and silver. All boxes the same

Reserving my slot for this.  

 

Of the tanks being offered, I have the Spagooter, the PZ3K, the Sexton, and the Bretogne Panther. 

 

Will be initially 100 boxes, whether it's 75+25 or 4 X 25 of each type is to be determined.

Sent you a PM - Hit me up.

Also I'm happy to link to the twitch accounts to all people that participate in data gathering to help support their channels.

Considering the 100$ bundle is lowest cost / box, I expect the 75 + 25 is likely the cheapest way to go. Hopefully you can fill in the rest of the ornaments through missions and breaking down the extra tier 5s you get from the big bundle.

Again - happy to link back to all twitch streamers that help me with data to try and drive some traffic your way.

Thanks! My sister did my Avatar for me :)
That's a bummer, getting min rolls on consecutive boxes has been relatively unlikely on the middle to larger bundles in the past.

It irritates me that they don't have a bundle that's like, 20 boxes of each of the (4) types. I'd pay for that.

I can nip that one in the bud right now. 

Last year I already owned a Skorp G but rec'd gold comp a few times. Also won a Defender more than once and the 40T which I already had,  but never got the IS3A.

I would be more than happy to provide input for this. I'll be providing mine through screenshots most likely. My computer is getting older, so I'm trying to take it easy on streaming/video editing if I can.

I am after specific items and will buy boxes until I get what I want.

I can do screenshots or list it all.

Definitely not worried about that last part...forum people scare me.  :hiding:

 

Sent you a PM about a quick little guide for users to record their loot box openings.

I AGREE! I'll make sure I give this feedback directly to WGNA staff, and they can relay it to the developers.

There may be obvious reason why they don't already do this (for more dollars) but I'll make sure it gets to the people that i can reach.

Excellent data point! Thanks for the information!

I appreciate your help, but I cannot recommend you to keep buying boxes until you find what you are wanting. #pleasenogambling

I'm going to be opening 300 loot boxes on video the moment they are released, I'll post the video here in this thread when I have it uploaded, as well as share it in the World of Tanks discord server.

 

 

Video of me opening here, I put what I got in the description. Not rendered in HD yet.  https://www.youtube....eature=youtu.be

I as going to just buy 75...but then I realize there are 4 different flavors.  If I like the rewards for festive levels would it be advised to get a couple 25's instead, its less of a deal?

i was trying to work out the same thing.  I think - stress think - that in terms of getting festive levels, 3x25 should be the same as 1x75 since you get higher festive level by putting higher level decorations into the garage, regardless of what collection they come from.  Where collections do matter is for getting the credit multiplier.  Each collection gives you a 0, .2%, .5%, .7% or 1% booster coefficient depending on how complete the collection is.  I can't figure out whether spreading out the decorations across collections is more efficient than concentrating on just one.  It gets especially complicated when you consider using the grinder to recycle unusable decorations.  One thing is clear though, 3x25 costs more than 1x75.

 

Edited to add:  Another consideration is that you only get the camo for a complete collection, so spreading it could either make it harder to get the camo, if you don't play too much, or easier to get multiple camos if you play more, as you will be guaranteed a bunch of level 5 decorations in several collections, the hardest ones to earn through play.
