Apparently, WG showed lootboxes for World of Warships at Gamescom.

 

 

What's everybody's opinion on that? Like the idea? Hate it?

What kind of loot would you like to see in them?

I would imagine good ones, like doubloons or tons of free XP

Seems interesting, I wonder what those lootboxes will give us, and how one would be able to get them, personally I would prefer it if the system was similar to how Armored Warfare did it, where players gain them by doing well in battle in daily missions, and the boxes themselves reward you with usable equipment like XP boosters, credits, or consumables.

Potato camera :P

 

Can't say anything since I don't know how you get or what it gives to you... :unsure:

 

Yeah potato camera doesn't help... But the article where I found the video mentioned the reward in this example was some signal flags. I think it looks more like a premium smoke consumable... I think that's the kind of loot we'll get with those boxes. Just a small incentive to log in everyday.

Indeed, its always nice to get useful equipment on a daily basis, though I wonder if you can earn them by taking part in battles?, and if you don't mind, can I have a link to the article?

So there are actual people?  Everything isn't being manipulated by an invisible entity called Dave?  Well, I guess there are the captains, but we never see them either.

I see lootboxes and instantly think "how are they going to try to milk us with this". If it's anything outside of that expectation, I couldn't care less about what it is and will likely be pleasantly surprised.

When you add lootboxes & cater towards player wants to a tank game, you get AW :tea_cap:

 

Nah, this game don't need it. It'll break the game / make it way too easy

If they are like Any of the other f2p games out there they will probably make you use doubloons to open them. But it looks like the video was using credits so maybe it won't be WG cashgrab.

Maybe they will move them to personal missions where you complete missions to get lootboxes? And there will be 3 type of loot boxes. Sliver, Gold, Platinum

I say Platinum lootbox will be very rare and hard to get. And you have an 5% of getting a premium ship inside it.

That would be interesting. Platinum box "get 10 krakens in a row". But who doesn't want more free stuff. Ruin the game I don't think so.

Loot boxes are a feature in practically all other FtP pvp games out there.

 

If they are like the Christmas present boxes, I don't see the problem?

Don't like the idea. Don't really get the point behind it, esp because of the "random" factor. It could be good, it could be crap. It's like buying TCG cards - complete luck of the draw on getting duplicates and useless things. Why not just OFFER the things you could get in the box? For all the complaining about RNG, this is incredibly RNG based - especially if, just like in all the other games with this, you can drop real money on these boxes.

 

I'm sorry,but this is what really turned me off for PvP FPS games, how it's all about luck and who has the biggest wallet for the most "chances" at good stuff. Greedy companies giving everything but the highest tier boxes a low-mid roll for the best gear for its type means they make off with your DLC money, and you are left taking potshots at completely broken gear that "everyone has a chance at" (They do, you just get more opportunity with the $200 bundle)

 

Can someone sell me on the idea? I'd like to know how/why this is such a thing as opposed to "kill X players, receive Y reward"

Just as long as they don't put one time prizes, only able to get them from lootboxes, 1 out of 1,000 chance to get it on opening it, RNG manipulated.  But hey, want more loot boxes, buy 10 for $20
