The man stretches himself in all sorts of contortions. The comments are holding his feet to the fire though.

Well he wouldn't want to be anti-business after all.

The best comment I saw "How's that Russian leather taste?"

He's not doing himself ANY favors right now. It's clear they are rigged, the masses are angry, and he rolls in defending wargaming.

Or he was given his marching orders by the Committee.

I disagree with Zoup that this is some kind of error. It is the same way the event has worked since its inception, with the change a couple years ago that there are no duplicate drops. 

There is apparently a gate drop at each level, and beyond that the ships have decreasing probability with increasing tier or belonging to the "rare" group. This has been clear to any interested observer since 2016.

And if you just started the game, this information is nowhere to be found on the santa crate news page itself.

I agree. They eliminated duplicate drops, otherwise it's the same as it has been since 2016.

"Not coming out to defend them"

Exact previous sentence:

Quote

"An honest mistake, in some kind of algorithm or some line of coding...."

  while there's actual proof on the whole case.

Quote

"You know, mistakes do happen"

While talking about the case of people spending hundreds of dollars on containers.....

 

Man, Zoup for the past 2 years has gone downhill, and he was actually decent at the start :Smile_sad:.

That's fair. This should have been in the news section as in past years.

Damn, there is a guy in the comment section saying he got the Makarov, didn't want the ship, sold it for credits, then got another Makarov. I know it is not smart to sell these premium ships, as they become supercontainers, but that was...brutal

I don't know how it has been advertised in the past, that doesn't matter in regards to this year.  This year WG misrepresented what the majority of players can actually get when they say you can get a chance of 1 of 107 ships.  That is wrong, and actually illegal in most places.

the fact that people can defend WG when theres overwhelming evidence against them, shows me that some people truly are shills for this criminal of a company

I don't know why if you get a ship crate of a ship you already have WG doesn't just give you equivalent value ship instead of totally random, OR give you the doubloons.

I had to unfollow him on Twitter because he wouldn't shut up about minor nitpicks of California law.  He asks you to follow him for Warships content, instead you get petty political bickering.

It IS hard to come to a conclusion if you already have every Premium ship, what's the point?

If i could have bought Jean Bart or Mushashi I would have, would have been cheaper. I bought $110 worth of crates till I got the JB and quit.

Of course I got a lot of flags and my premium time has boosted to over a year in the future.

Wasn't aware of that since I prefer to stay as far away from Twitter as possible, though I can easily believe what you describe.

Truth be told I fail to grasp Zoups motives behind being so defensive of WG as a whole.

At around the 7:55 mark Zoup states "these aren't necessarily loot crates".

I still like his videos for the most part but truthfully he seemed to be scrambling a bit to come to War Gaming's defense.

Wait Zoup still posts WoWs videos? 

I hadn't noticed. 

:cap_cool:

Neither have I.

Haven't found him particularly relevant since he "advised" the players who listened to him, to buy all the coal ships in his "Which Coal Ship to Buy" video a few years back. Seemed rather a stupid point to make when players were trying to decide on where to spend their resources.
