Sorry this is my first year participating. I searched online but couldn’t find anything for 2018. Any idea?

Last year it was December 20th.

This^.  They dropped on the 20th with the release of patch 0.6.15.  I'd guess that they'll drop this year with patch 0.7.12, probably on the wednesday before Xmas which would be the 19th  (entirely my speculation here based on past evidence).

Don't remember how early but they were available for awhile. So Likely to come with the next patch.

My guess would be around February 5th or so.  I think we have a few more months of Halloween stuff to get through...

I was just going to say the same thing.

I mean I really love the Halloween events, but come on WG... it's ridiculous how long they go on and on and on.

This is a good guess and I agree. Since 7.12 is looking to be 5 weeks long, the Santa crates *could* stay until Jan 23rd when 8.0 is looking like it will drop.

Considering 0.7.11 dropped the week of November 20th, if we are still using the 4 week patch cycle, then yes, I'd expect 0.7.12 to drop the week of December 17th.  However, with the holidays being such a big event, it wouldn't surprise me one bit if we seen this patch a bit early (week of December 10th), just to entice players a bit more.  It is a pretty significant patch.

You may be right but we'll see about the crates themselves.  In the past, the crates dropped the Wednesday prior to Xmas (12/20/2017 and 12/21/2016).   They could drop the patch early and release the crates delayed.

Not entirely sure were going to have them this year to tell the truth.  Been a lot of stuff about "loot box" and the mechanics there int his year in the industry and government.

WG way of doing it should be fine.  It's certainly more generous then any other games loot box stuff. (more honest too! and not trying to avoid existing laws around the world on it by obfuscation and double blinds  (ie: con jobs!) )

Still it'll be a bit yet .  If we do have them sometime in the next couple weeks we should know for sure.

Forgive my ignorance, but how did one gain Santa crates last year, and what were in them?

In general they're purchased and they have decent odds of dropping ships (you could earn a few on occasion).

Here is last year's post.

you could  win some for free,the crates are currently considered the best crates when it comes to cost benefit. they have a chance to drop a premium ship,even removed ones like kutuzov,belfast,nikolai,GC and kamikazes,maybe even GZ.

Until nations out right ban loot boxes, they will be here this year.

Santa crates are set to be awards for campaigns in patch 7.12 and for Clan Battles.

The "Belle Époque" Collection collection has a Santa crate as a reward.

 

The Steel Monsters purchasable campaign will have Santa crats as a reward.

Supercontainers will have Missouri, not sure if Santa crates will too. Possible.
