This is not the definition that many European countries are now using and you know it.

 

I LOVE lootboxes.  

 

If you think it's gambling, don't buy them.

You are not guaranteed a prem tank, and more than likely you will get the lowest reward greater than 90% of the time. It is going to be just like the winter event, such a low drop rate, you waste tons of money for a very small chance to actually get anything worth more than the actual money you wasted to buy the footlocker.

 

I usually receive about 300% above a straight gold purchase. Some of that is because I already have the tanks and this is as cheap as gold gets.

@Everyone: If you think it's gambling or don't like the mode..Don't PAY or PLAY. Simple as that. Crying about it in the forums is futile. There were some relevant questions about the boxes but besides that, bashing Krzy does nothing, he's just the messenger. I come to the forums to learn about new things but all I ever see is complaints and crying when even the slightest CHANGE or NUANCE occurs. This game will constantly change until the servers stop running. If you don't want a game to change go back to PS2. Yes I'm complaining about complaining on the forum but it's not directed at the game instead you reading this right now. <o

Maybe I missed it in the article, can I just buy the T77 with cash? You know without the box thing.

Czarfoot

If you buy T77 for plain cash you will pay 40-50 dollars. But if you try to get it from loot boxes among other 15 tanks you will spend 500 or even 1000 dollar. Feel the difference. :coin:

 

I am not going to play this event because I am tired of continuous stream of sh!t events. But this one even without any valuable reward. It was introduced just to milk pixel tanks collectors.

 

Oh, wait. I will play once. Just put my Waffertrager in the middle of the map and give fellow tankers easy win.

 

P.S. I think we can buy T77 for cash in 6-9 months.

You are guaranteed an equal amount of goods worth the amount of money spent. The Tanks are only available in the bigger loot boxes and are compensated with gold. 

 

Loot boxes specifically roll a random amount of goods so you can spend 5 dollars on a box and get nothing. The footlockers are different for this mode. 

 

You earn normal ones throughout the mode for just playing or you can get special ones with money. You are guaranteed 3 things from the special footlockers. 

 

These are broken down in the article. If you already own a premium that you receive from a box then you will get compensated in gold.

 

 

 

"You earn normal ones throughout the mode for just playing or you can get special ones with money. You are guaranteed 3 things from the special footlockers. "

 

That's not what the wording on the image in the article says

 

----

"Special Footlocker"

 

Slot 1

You will receive *one* random reward from the list:

Various trinkets and a couple of items of some value

 

Slot 2

You can *possibly* receive:

Various T8 Premium tanks

 

Slot 3

You are *guaranteed* to receive:

100 gold

----

 

Now for what you said "You are guaranteed an equal amount of goods worth the amount of money spent"

 

So let's look at it then

 

We get 100 gold, using the minimum amount of gold purchase available, which works in your favour, has a value of 60 cents

Then we get a random item, let's say we get one demount kit which, although it's available for credits at the moment, we'll put at 10 gold or 6 cents using the gold value above

So if we're guaranteed an equal amount of value a box only containing the items above would cost 66 cents or less ? 

 

That's certainly cheap for a box with a chance to win a t8 Premium tank. Of course we don't know the chances of getting a box containing a tank and, if I remember correctly, here in Europe you are required by law to make the chances of winning available and I can't see that published on the EU website yet but I assume it will be .....

Does anybody know how long the KEYS are good for?

 

It can't be for just one game.  Is it one day?  Each key is active for 1 day or 24 hours?

Howdy Boom Jockeys!

 

It has returned, the OP German superweapon deemed to amazing for World of Tanks is back!

 

 

Starting 28Sep until 12Oct you can enjoy this game mode. 

More information can be found HERE.

 

Special footlockers with consumables and a Super special footlocker with a chance to get the new T77 premium tank among other premium tier 8 vehicles.

 

You can also reopen the earned footlockers with credits or the super special footlockers with gold.

 

I will be in one of the super Waffentragers so bring it on :P.

 

How long are the KEYS good for when you activate them?

What if you sold one of the tanks available in the loot boxes and can still buy it back through the return special vehicle feature, will you still receive the vehicle or will you get gold compensation?

I'm not so sure they know what they are talking about regarding gold compensation for already having a premium tank..the move has been mostly to give credits for tanks that used to get gold compensation...Moderators here have made mistakes in past..If it was said in the release notes for the mode,then it might be credible.

This mode is just to renew anger with all the old Waffle owners LOL.  will try it out tonight i guess.

 

It may angers old Waffe owners, but for those that got shots by them, it is a relieve. Even for us that only know it as an urban legend, having that broken tank out of the regular game is great news.

I'm more intetested in the "collection" items than loot boxes or tier VIII tanks inside them.

 

Will this collection items be unique crews, decals, emblems, styles, etc? Because that is what i'm looking for. About the gold in loot boxes seems fair to me, maybe buying some boxes to gather more gold for future sales/swaps

Everyone please listen very carefully. I spend a crap ton of money on this game and have actually loved wargaming's lootboxes in the past. But this is a absolute rip-off. I just spent 15,500 gold reopening only 10 boxes and only got one premium tank. Remember when you reroll you don't even get to keep the other stuff and that 100 guaranteed gold is worthless if you end up spending 2100 gold on the boxes. You are not even guaranteed a tank unless you reroll the special box at least once. DO NOT BUY

Can you confirm that what you are *guaranteed* from the boxes, in addition to the 100 gold, is 1 item from that list of random items as pr the article or is it more ?

Correct you get 100 gold and ONLY one of the random items. I typically got a day of premium or a credit booster...

WT as a whole is ok, its fun, but the T-55 Thunderbolts? Abysmal... c'mon, 1000 hp? you dont even get a bigger hp pool the more power you get, and you only regain like 200 hp per power pack... and once you get back up to say 700, the WT hits you for 600 and your back down to nothing again... 1000 hp is so ridiculously little for a tier 9 "future" medium... I get that were trying to make the WT look super OP, but by the time you have a full 10 power 5/7 of the team is dead and we cant even have 7 man platoons

Much obliged

So 10 boxes = 9$

In those boxes I will get 10x100 gold plus 10 random items but let's say for sake of argument I get 10x1 demount kits to make the math simple, 10x10 gold .... sorta even if it's a stretch these days with all the kits you can get but at least it has a price you can figure out. You may get more and even a tank but this is the minimum payout

That's 1100 gold worth of gold and trinkets

 

1100 gold costs 6$

 

That means the only way to get your *guaranteed* value, as the NA rep stated earlier, is if we set the value of those 3 keys they include in that 10 pack of boxes at 1 dollar each ......

 

Awesome, I'm buying a set
