Wowsers folks...  the package contains a physical corkscrew.  What a nice complement to the special event sales we get here at NA.

 

Did someone say Mutant pre-orders?

 

Deja Vu anyone?

 

Full video follows the Coubs.

 

 

 

 

 42 seconds or so...   "You trust THIS guy".    :D

June 2021 ...

 

By the way folks 49.99 and free shipping.  I'm guessing if you're in NA and outside of the US it shows your standard currency amount.  Hopefully since it won't ship outside of NA it'll advise that before folks buy it.

 

Oh it gets better.  As they say the devil is in the details.

 

It activates a 50 battle rental which is tied to a limited time mission (details revealed after you buy it) that gives the tank.  You don't get the tank outright.  And per meanieoh it ships to NA only.

The Crate also includes a digital code (valid until December 16, 2021) for the following items:

  • A 50-battle rental of the U.S. M6A2E1 "Mutant" Tier VIII heavy tank
  • Ninety (90) Days WoT Premium Account
  • Exclusive mission that rewards the U.S. M6A2E1 "Mutant" tank for free (yours to keep) upon completion (details are available in the in-game client once the digital code is activated).*

*After activating the digital code, the mission is valid for 30 days after the first log in.

 

In order to make the Crate a reality, it needs to reach a number of backers (buyers) before it goes into production. Once it reaches its goal, it will ship out on June 2021. Orders must be placed before Tuesday, December 24 at 23:59 PT | Wednesday, December 25 at 01:59 CT | 02:59 ET. If the backer goal is not reached, the Crate will not go into production and buyers will not be charged.

 

And if you click the button for more information and to order it.

I suspect it will take 51 battles to complete the Mutant missions.  That's where the corkscrew comes in.

I'd say it's legit, but pretty disingenuous of them to make folks look for the details.

 

Some of us know how they are (see the coubs lol), but a lot of folks, especially new players, don't and will learn the hard way.

 

That mission details after the purchase and it's a limited time mission once you activate the code is probably nothing to worry about, but then again why not reveal the details now and why limit the mission.  Especially since the reward is a virtual tank.

I think I got that covered, but in this case I'd like to refer to them as reality waves. 

 

Still probably nothing to worry about, but the lack of details would turn me off if I was interested which I'm not.

 

50 bucks to grind for a prem with some merch advertising WoT thrown in....    no thanks.

32 orders or "backers" or 2% of the 2000 total.

That looks more like a cigar box than a crate.

And as someone mentioned in another thread, you'll get your card charged in December even though it doesn't ship until June, and you usually only have 90 days to dispute a charge due to non-delivery of goods...plus a little history from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loot_Crate

 

"The company announced that it was filing for bankruptcy protection on August 12, 2019, laying off close to half of its remaining workers in the weeks prior. The company owed more than US$30 million in debt and US$5.87 million in taxes, while its credit card processor has withheld payments to the company. While under Chapter 11 bankruptcy, it plans to continue to fulfill orders but seeks potential buyers.[5]

On October 1, 2019, subscribers were informed by email of Loot Crate's sale to Money Chest LLC., majority funded by NECA. The company will operate under a new name: The Loot Company. [6]"

I've already decided no thanks, but plus one for that nonetheless. 

 

This would likely close my wallet if I was on the fence.

 

As with all things Caveat Emptor, more so in light of this and the other unknowns.

I always thought he should've changed Hail to the Chief after that.

 

It would've been different to hear some Floyd intro music.

 

 

Or a little more obscure replacement.  Bocephus can play though he doesn't often.

Wait, so now we got $$$ WG crowdfunding a physical loot box with *potential* digital contents? And here we thought CMON was bad for using Kickstarter as a pre-order store.

 

I'm very confused; we're nowhere near April right now.

 

That crate looks pretty cheap, btw. And the physical contents sound pretty cheap as well.
