I have a od suspicion the santa boxxes are rigged to favor premium player with premium ships, while screwing over non premium players.

 

my reasoning behind this is simple, i purchased 3 3 usd boxes and 2 5usd boxes while non premium, i receive CAMMOS EVERY SINGLE TIME.

 

i then used some dubloons i had saved up, to purchase 24 hours of premium, and i thought why the [edited]not, i'm broke as [edited]anyways, so i purchased 3 more 3 dollar boxes, adn low adn behold, 2 premium ships, and cammos.

 

so i would be interested, to those who spent loads of cash on teh boxxes and ended up with premium ships, were you on premium acocunts?

I purchased 6 $5 boxes, got camo x4 and the ichhy zucchini x2.

 

Bought 11 $3 boxes, got Emden x1, 90 days premium x1, dragon flags x1, dabloons x1, camo x7.

 

I was not a premium player when any of the 3 ships dropped.

hence why i'm REQUESTING MORE DATA you dip

 

which is nothing more than having to sate your confirmation bias towards your speculation that prem account users have better rates. 

Besides, there is already a thread dedicated to players who opened the santa boxes so i dont see why a new thread is needed to request for more data when the data is already there.

Well, I have a premium account and didn't do great the first set of of crates I got-a Warspite and Arizona. I did get 180 days of premium and a bunch of doubloons as well and a gazillion camos. I gave it one last shot today with 5 $1 containers, which gave me flags and 500 gold. The 5 $5 dollar containers after that though gave me what I wanted-a Gremy and as a bonus a Prinz Eugen. I can now lay it to rest. I'd stay away form the Admiral crates and go with the $5 crates as the best value.

Check the WoWS reddit since I think they actually calculated different averages on what you can gain from the boxes.

 

Remember that the boxes themselves are still chance boxes in itself.  Not everybody will get ships from every box they open, though I've gotten kinda lucky with my boxes (for the most part, though I have had some duds).

Just buy the boxes individually. I think the roll on what ship you get is decided at the time of transaction. You might end up getting multiple copies of the same ship if all you do is buy in bulk... Trust me, I bought 50 3-USD boxes in 3 transactions, I get multiple Ishizuchis and Endems. I buy 10 of the same boxes 1 by 1, in 10 transactions, I get a Gremmy and a Nikolai.

This!  I learned this after also getting duplicate garbage.  I bought two $5 boxes...and got crap.  I bought another two $5 boxes...and one of them was a Mikhail Kutuzov :D.

It's how gambling works, some people are lucky and get a low chance win, many people aren't.

Seems fair though there are people who have spent a fortune on this game and it would be fair to award them more for what they have given to this game. I wont complain its those people who keep the developers paid.

I did get a bunch of camos, flags and 15k~ doubloons, so it wasn't all that bad. I did give up getting the Nikolai after that, but I succumbed and tried buying them individually to prove a theory I've gotten based on some comments. It proved effective, as this time I only bought 10 boxes to get BOTH the Gremmy and the Nikolai.

You could not get the Gremy or Nikolai from that bundle. Hence why people are spending crazy cash on the containers.

It's kind of rigged towards players with premium ships, that is, those premium ships that are the rewards. So if you have an emden and izisuchi, you are going to get other premium ships. If you're going to be spending serious money on these boxes, it might be cost effective to just buy the emden and izisuchi from the premium shop before you unload your wallet. If you have all but the t8 premiums that these boxes reward, you will get nothing but t8 premiums (plus the elusive gremy / nikolai) when you do get a ship drop.
