Huge thanks to everybody that assisted in providing data!

 

The article is written, and live. I've populated it with my preliminary results. Overall the value has dropped by around 13% over last years boxes, but that could come down to data size. The results are still the same:

 

The math provides evidence that the Holiday Ops large boxes continue to be the best value for gold and premium time (purchased with gold) all year round.

 

The article has some additions that lacked in last year's article. I'm striving to add value to the information in each iteration of these value guides.

It's not all sparkles and sunshine - I've provided my criticisms to the large boxes at the end of the article. I hope you read through them before buying any boxes to make sure you are as informed as possible.

I agree with you, in three years I get about 50% more gold than just the gold cost alone, plus most or all of the premiums, credits , styles and  bonuses. It really is a Christmas sale with a little bit of randomness thrown in to make it fun.

Interesting how the Progetto 46's drop rate is the lowest out of all the tanks, even lower than E75 TS and 703 V2. Of course the lowest drop rate would be on the only tank I actually wanted this round lol.

 

Thanks for crunching those numbers! Have a well deserved +1

It's still a small dataset.  Only 7 recorded of the 2,311 boxes so far, and 2 of those were in the ones I opened.

 

Definitely wouldn't suggest chasing any particular tank though.

It's good to see that the value is holding pretty steady over past years.

 

One thing that I would prefer is that the Tier 10 styles drop based on what tanks you already own. Both this year and last year, I got styles for tanks I don't own. This year it was a skin for the Obj 430U, which is a tank that I fundamentally abhor and refuse to play. I have 4 of the 6 tier 10s that they have styles for this year, but got the 430U. Oh well.

Thanks for all your work!  I'm still convinced it was the T2 & T3 tanks and respective gold issued for their duplicates that dropped the value of this year's boxes over last year's.  Still a great value, though.

If we assume the game won't do duplicates, until each premium is owned, then I expect the most popular tank in the list to have to lowest drop rates - because that tank is already owned.

Yea... It would be nice if the skins randomly selected from the tank already owned or at least fully researched first, and then filled in the rest after that...

I agree - that does make logical sense. The drop rates haven't changed, just the gold compensation really.
