Just looked into the Shop, and saw that they only have discounted ships for sale. Was hoping to treat myself to some Santa crates.

Someone on reddit posted of video of them from the Russian server.

They'll probably be available as soon as someone gets into the office and flips the switch to update the premium shop.

seems they are waiting WAY too long to release the crates. Many say it was 12/21 last year, but it didnt seem that close to xmas day....it would be nice to get some kind of confirmation from WG as to what is going on. You literally have thousands of people waiting to throw money at you and you have ZERO promotion going on. FYI, no one really gives a crap about 6.15 update when crates are around the corner. You could have at least made a teaser video with some info for the players....so we knew exactly what was going on and when.

Right....sorry guys. IIRC, last years crates wen't on sale until January 19th.

I think they extended the event until January 19th because it was so popular. They went on sale before Christmas.

I just went back thru my posts around that time. On Dec 22nd I made my first post about what I won in the containers so it was around the 21st or 22nd.

Ok was the 21st, here is a link to the original WG page on the crates:

You are correct.  I logged my purchases as well and mine started on 12/22/16.

Looking at the prizes, Wargaming really overvalues their camouflages.... I mean seriously, 50 signals but only 5 camos? You can get 5 camos or 30 days premium time? I would dare say that camo is the booby prize in the crates..

I have no idea what's Hunter (is it a ship?).  Also the premium ship offerings might change for NA. If it is the same pattern on NA, then it is for sure that not all premiums would be offered in these boxes. 

 

Edit-My bad, they are offering other premiums too but I had missed out (In addition, from all the containers you can get one of the following ships).

Brotherhood of Santas Loot Boxes are up on the Russian server:

https://worldofwarships.ru/ru/news/action/ded_moroz_brotherhood/

or the google translate link:

Or since the servers have their offers unified, just wait a few hours and view them in the NA premium shop!
