Happy happy happy. Can't thank you enough for the Santa boxes. Atago and Gremy were two ships I really wanted... and Santa gave them to me. And I got tons of camo, flags, you name it.....

 

Thanks guys!!!!

Yeah the boxes seem to be pretty generous, I actually feel bad when I see people complaining about not getting the ships they want.  For the price of a single T7-8 premium I've gotten almost every ship I didn't have including a couple I almost don't want!  But I'm not going to look a gift horse in the mouth.  I realize that it's actually a clever way to squeeze us for money with a holiday theme, but I almost want to thank WG because the drop rate is unbelievably generous if we're to believe what we see on the forums and I have no reason to really doubt it given my experience other than general skepticism and an awareness of how gambling (is supposed) to work!

 

Congrats!  Now get out and kill some baby seals.

Still going strong over here without any premium content :D

 

You are laughing, I noticed in another thread you started, that you touted the fact you have spent nothing on this game as a badge of honour. One would think if one enjoyed a product by said company, they would support it.

When I get the 'Gift' premium ship, first there is the cost of the container.

Then there is $2.50 to retrain the 10 point captain to a grinder.

For me, the real prize is the commander.  This allows me to have many more usable Elite ships to choose from, and more captains to choose from if a premium ship is 'in battle'.

...

This container thing has been very good to me.  Lo Yang, Anshin, Gremyashchy, Imperator, Marblehead, and Indianapolis.

I played each one at least once in Co-Op just to set them up.

The Imperator is insane.

I also think WG randomly picks people on whom gets a rare ship based on the # of premiums already owned.

 

The list of ships they are giving away is limited. Once you have all the ships, they repeat. So a friend of mine keeps getting Emdens because he has all the ships, which are converted to doubloons -- a cheap way to get piles of doubloons (I guess the program must default to Emden when all ships are owned). He also has an insane number of 10 pt German captains...

Wish I had that kind of money to get that many boxes. Though I start my first job on Monday, so maybe next time around.

​I know how that goes, I got you 5x 1$ boxes. merry etc!

 

​can you do me a favor and let me know what you got? i'm testing a theory that gifted crates reward more than what you buy for yourself.

​I've been hearing that kind of stuff a lot, a friend got me 2 x $3 crates and I got a blyskawica and Emden right away. someone on the WOT forums told me his friend got a Tirpitz right away from his gift crate. early on I got a Scharnhorst and a few lowbies (zucchini, Marblehead etc) and 90 days prem and some decent doubloon drops but after that it was a looooong streak of just camos and flags

 

​I think it's designed to encourage gifting rather than buying for yourself. really been shooting for imperator/gremy but no luck so far.

I did take a test this morning and ended up doing a lot better on it than I expected. Like, A LOT BETTER. So that's why I bought the 20 boxes and rewarded myself.

I had all of the premium ships from the list, and I too only received multiple Emdens from the $3.00 packages.

​PM me if you wanna trade a few crates. I am hoping for gremy and nikolai. based on my experience and reading other people's on the forums, it kinda seems to me like the rewards are bigger for gifted crates rather than what you buy for yourself. idk if that's true or not.
