Looking at the NA news article about Santa crates, the Mega crate section doesn't say anything about 5,000 doubloons being a possible drop. But I just noticed:

From an EU guy on wows-gamers-blog on Facebook:

Really? People like me who have almost every ship, won't have a chance to draw 5,000 doubloons after we've gotten the last couple ships we don't have, but EU people will?

Russian maybe? IDK, could be false somehow. Maybe they got rid of the 5,000 doubloons at the last minute. I sent him a message asking where he got that, we'll see.

Just checked the russian site, it seems to say the same thing as EU & NA. 

 

I'm with the rest of you, I'd say that WG had planned to do one thing, then changed their mind close to the last minute.

Translation:  They pulled a scrooge on Christmas, nice.  Looking at that PR grind to boot, well...

Ehh they have been nerfing crate prizes for a while, is one reason I haven't bought them in years. Besides this time around I am horrified by the idea I could get a premium carrier or more premium time. I do feel sorry for those people who drop $5 on a Mega Santa Gift and get just 5 one use camos for their money. All in all the crates are super simple to ignore. Just farm the free ones and be happy with those. Wargaming has seen fit to make it really easy not to spend money this time around.

Yeah, go with the NA WG article. That gamer blog stuff came out last week and was taken down right quick.

I'm surprised the gamer blog itself doesn't get taken down right quick. Maybe they'll learn what happens when they're too quick with the scoop.

Especially since their scoop wasn't all correct.

That was exactly my point.

Speaking of scoops being early or late, my Wednesday night is going to be hell IRL. You might not see a tactical analysis out of me until at least Thursday.

I'm up early tomorrow to start gathering numbers. I may not play at all tomorrow.

I wish. Infusions this week on top of in-laws and their :etc_swear: screaming brats on top of it.

It's a real gamer who can Main Tank an epic raid in EQ2 and still hit the barf pail between the legs at the same time! :Smile_teethhappy:

Oh dear. At least you won't have a camera up your behind while you're doing all this.

Thanks. I'm holding my own. Wife says the only reason not dead yet is Hell doesn't need two Satans. :Smile_teethhappy:

Can't we just ask Wargaming if they found any polyps while they were up there?

I actually went and saw Frozen II of my own free will and rather enjoyed it, but then, I enjoyed the first one the first time I saw it, it was only after 86 successive viewings that I started to hate it. Oddly my daughter never suffered that same phenomenon.
