Really WG 72 random Dutch bundles . I think you are really trying to milk as much money out of your player base as much as you can . That is way to many bundles and at  1,000! doubloons each . You could of lowered the cost to 250 doubloons and still made some money out of it . 
you probbly

would get more players buying them

What I can't figure out is why they released the De Ruyter in early access last patch just to ignore its presence in this patch? I have the ship yet I have to re-purchase it to get the bundles after it. Sure, it's only 40 tokens and I can get 1.1 million credits for already having her but I already have 650 million credits.

I have no further interest in this tech tree line.

I'll take whatever Dutch tokens I get and purchase signal flags and sell all the cruisers I get after the next patch goes live.

This event is a non-starter for me...

Totally agree, prizes not worth the doubloons, I’d rather buy a tier 9 premium (as a very new player).

a shame, I was excited to be involved in this.

Shameless thievery. 72 random bundles at a 1000 dubs each. Just wow. Other than the Johan De Witt , the rest of the 71 bundles is just junk.

Just when you thought Wargaming couldn't get any greedier. 

72 bundles x 1000 doubloons each:

72,000 doubloons to be 100% sure of getting a tier 9 tech tree ship:

That's $288 cash for a t9 tech tree cruiser.

It's hard to conceive how WGing Ltd could drive this game out of existence any faster, if they were given that specific mission as their objective. 

Realistically, NO reasonable player would pay this much for this little. WG has to know this.  

That leaves the questions: What is WG thinking? What is going on?

It appears that WG has a reason for creating a ready cash sink to the tune of almost $300 per account. 

A reason that WG believes will generate substantial amounts of money for WGing. 

That reason clearly isn't to sell 72 chances at a tech tree ship to each player. 

Read the news lately and it isn't too hard to figure out what Wging is really doing with this "event" and it appears to have nothing whatsoever to do with providing a game or service that the playerbase is remotely interested in.

Somehow I find it's weird that WG chose such a inefficient way to sell tech tree ship.

They must cannot figure out a better way to make money, or there are enough "core players" donate their money and accept this pricing.

Simply put new tech tree ship in paid and free containers can make more money. Or, add more stuff in random bundle, make the 1000 doubs well spent. At least let players believe it's well spent (ex. add port slot, commanders, perm camos)

One more word about perm camo in this case,  let's say a perm camo with only -4% detectability, but can be mounted on any ship; would be a small nice addition in random bundle

Yes I had the ship and had to the same . They did this with the Italian BB’s also making us waste tokens to rebuy just hope they gave us some credits for it

For the tokens, you get up to 325 tokens for free. To redeem the tier 8 ship, you will need 450 tokens, so you will have to buy the doubloon crates to get that ship. If you are lucky enough to get the 80 token crate, you need to spend 6000 doubloons to get tier 8 ship. If you are unlucky, you will need to spend at least 13000 doubloons just to get the early access tech tree tier 8 ship.

Yet another cash grab for what are very very average ships, World of gamble boxes is the gateway to a serious gambling addiction. its a rip off and $300 for a tech tree ship, its a disgrace! of course they will say you don't have to buy so people please don't buy this kind of game content its over priced trash. we can say you don't have to put this kind of content out there so we don't have to be tempted to buy or build some good ships at a reasonable price for a change WG.

For the random bundles, if I don't see the ship in the first random bundle, then I don't buy any.  They would make me buy maybe two bundles if they previewed what was in the next bundle and the one after that, or even the one after that.  Must be a few whales out there that will spend the doubloons, but not me....as a general FTP player, my few doubloons are very precious - my precious...

The most redundant phrase in the forums is ... just when you thought WG couldn't get any greedier. As of 06.07.21 introducing the Summer "Sale". Waiting to see how they top that, won't be long.

The EARLY ACCESS time is way too long.  Open the line WG.

Yeah they drag these out just a bit too long and it really just kills the excitement, just a mood killer. By the time the events run out, have already lost interest in them totally.
