I think you have the Standard & Legendary chests the wrong way round.

So just to clarify... if I want the Type 64 & Chieftain/T95 (which I do). I have to buy crates to win other tanks that i already have?

 

NB: I have all the tanks in the crates except for Blaze WZ 135g FT, Tankenstein & AC IV Sentinal

I’d echo Timsinal’s query - if we just want a particular tank  - such as the Chieftain/T95 is it just possible to pay gold, or something else, to get them?

WG you idiots! You totally destroyed the most anticipated event of the year! Omg WG i thought you would do something good after the flop called black friday, BUT NO! I should have known. I am so stupid. No WG no money from me this christmas. Oh and one more thing: Get rid of these (censored) gambling chests. They are very addictive for the children that also play this game. You and your stupid crates can (censored)

You will need to wait till the auction is opened to see tank line up.

Last time tanks could be bought via the tickets and started very expensive and slowly decreased to expensive.

 

Take care “chasing tanks” as it can be very costly.


2017 Blitz Fair is on par with Patch3.8 equipment change.... Fking Broken.  2017 has been the worst year for Blitz, fire who ever has these stupid ideas. Due to this WoW Blitz will never see a $ of mine.

This event is:

- expensive to get something good

- a tsunami of boosters USELESS!

- over complicated 

- making people lose their money for nothing.

- totally crap

I hope the Chieftain/T95 & Type 64 are in the auction and they don't make it clear.

 

WG's explanation seems that you can only get them, plus the M60 in the Supergame which you have to open chests to progess in.

Apple apparentely updated the app store guidelines recently to require apps offering loot boxes to publicly disclose the odds of receiving each available item:

Though I don't have any high hopes WG will actually do this it would centainly be nice if they did.

Nobody has to buy anything, there's no coercion, kids can only gamble if they have money in their iTunes/Play store/Windows Store/Steam account, which will have been put there by their parents, as said kids don't have debit or credit cards. If parents aren't having some sort of oversight on their kids Internet behaviour, then there are many more serious things to worry about.

That’s not the point, let’s say Granny buys Johnnie a £50 iTune card and he loads it up and later that Christmas Day Granny says did you get anything good with your card? No he got duped into gambling for an M60 but ended up with useless poosters.

As in my other posts the regulation should be the same as China where you see what there is and then choose what you want and purchase it. It’s really sad when China have better protection laws than the rest of the world!

Lets be honest it doesn’t matter if  it’s blitz or any other game there will be many thousands of little Johnnies all round the world who will get robbed this Christmas needlessly because the authorities are way too slow to safeguard the gullible and vulnerable people drawn into this needles behaviour by gaming companies.

If granny cares so little about the child that she can't think of an appropriate gift... 

Anyway, my main point still stands. Parents are responsible for their children. Being a bit of a geek, I was able to implement a proxy filter at home when my kids were young, using an old PC and a hardened Linux build called IPCop. I appreciate that this is beyond many, but a degree of oversight is critical.

Whilst I agree to an extent with Mr Gilbert, and I blocked a lot of stuff on home network when they were younger, now they’re 15 & 17 (birthdays this week) I’m more on the side of advising them rather than stopping them and it’s this 14-18 year old group of kids I am more concerned about as I know most of their friends parents don’t have a scooby what their kids are up to...

 

Altho I also worry I’m turning into the Daily Mail - “think of the children” :)

If anyone wants to give it a go, the distro is here: http://www.ipcop.org/
You need an old PC with a CD ROM drive and a second network card. It's pretty straightforward.
Untangle is prettier: https://www.untangle.com/get-untangle/
The original, from which IPCop forked, was Smoothwall, but that is commercial now.
