Oldschool_Gaming_YT posted a topic in General Game DiscussionI just thought it might be interesting to see if anyone actually get these ships that are dangeled in front of us to tease us to buy any of the Christmas containers. Of the whole list I choosen these four (Missouri, Musashi, Benham and Belfast) since imho I think these are what the mayority of the playerbase would consider the "Jackpot win" out of them all. Many of these are considered really rare and in some cases a bit OP. For instance I didnt include Kutuzov since its not really that OP/broken any more with likes of Colberts and Smolensks in the game. So I just wanna know, in the name of transparancy, who if any have actually gotten these mighty four out of the boxes. And I would like to see either a picture of when you got the ship (im guessing many would take a screenshot of a thing like that) or atleast a screenshot from the ship in your port with close to none XP on it. Thanks!
I've been a paying member of the WoWS community for 3 years, and have always recognized the need for contributions, from those who are able to do so. I opted to make mine in the form of a purchase of a 20X Santa Mega Gift Box, and basically received 220 New Year's Streamer camos (11 of the 20 boxes), some coal, 5 spring sky camos, 2,000 doubloons, and a few minor items that I don't recall. The big prize was a Tier VI T-61 destroyer, and while I very much appreciated the ship, I really felt that WG could have done a little better than 220 units of the same camo. When I approached WG about it, they predictably told me that everyone was subjected to the same conditions. I am posting my experience is an effort to inform potential buyers of these "Gift Boxes", as to what they might receive. I include WG's response to my initial lament, and request to have the items re-evaluated, and my rebuttal to their points. YMMV, as other players will attest. >> Hello,, Thanks for contacting Wargaming Support. I am really sorry that you haven't received the content you wished, but please take into consideration that you were aware what can you receive from every single box upon purchasing and opening. All the rewards are distributed randomly. These random chances are the same for every player. Unfortunately, we are not able to exchange the in-game goods. I deeply apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding on the matter. << My response: >> Dear Alexandr, I would like to thank you very much for your prompt and thoughtful answer to my note. After careful consideration of your answer, and further rumination on its content, I have come to realize that you are correct. If one is truly honest in their considerations, they should find it absurd to participate in a stated random event, and expect a specific, favorable outcome. However, if, once again, one is truly honest in their considerations, given the plethora of unique, and diverse items in WoWS' catalogue of potential offerings, the balance of probability does not, in any way, favor the ridiculously disproportionate number of appearances of the New Year's streamer camo, in the gift drawings, that I experienced - unless such a condition was intentional, in which case, the description of a "random" item drawing in "Santa's Mega Gift Box" promotion, is HIGHLY inaccurate. I understand that WG would decline any request for restitution, or re-evaluation of the gift boxes, as to accept such a request would be to invite chaos amongst the ranks of players who did not receive their idea of a "fair" drawing, and who demanded another roll of the dice, in an effort to obtain more desirable items. However, please understand that, while I respect your explanation that all players are subject to the same conditions, I hope you respect my decision to be far more hesitant to part with my earnings, in future WG promotions. I also think it important that the WoWS community be as informed as possible, with respect to the potential outcomes of their investments in your game, and in that spirit, I will publish details of my issue (truthfully - there is no need for embellishment) on the fora, for readers' consideration. Again, Aleksandr, thank you for your time! Caveat Emptor.
You know, I don't want much for myself. But I am one of those people who enjoys giving things to others and who very much enjoys the social aspect of the game. It would be awesome if I could use my coal to purchase things in the Arsenal and gift them to others. Even if I have to pay a 20% penalty or similar -- if I buy an Aigle for myself it is 49K coal, but for a friend it is 59K... that's no problem. Lots of people in the forums and in games are on disability or fixed incomes and cant cough up $50 for a premium ship... and then we'd have a way to gift them ships they can really use. Make it happen, WG. Please.
