So I see we don’t have an event but chests that are just crazy mad prices. They now state the odds of dropping a tank so even with the 10 chests at 5% chance per chest £90 gaurentee’s nothing.

when will Wargaming just say hey everyone at £89.99 you won’t see many but if you want to get your leg lifted just press buy it now.....far easier.

On another note to CC’s on here, how does it stack up against T62a or Obj140?

On a positive note, they have at least given you the odds, but they have to legally, as you’re spending real money, I still think though they are being their usual disingenious selves as I would bet it’s a 80/90 % chance for poosters but they’re not tellng you the ither odds!!!!

 

In normal betting odds terms a 19/1 shot is pretty long and anyone who wastes money on these crates shouldnt moan they know the chances of a tenk are slim but what’s the betting we get a flood of complaints about spending 100’s and not getting the tenk?

Yeah at least they're being quote unquote honest, on a level with those swan hooking games at the funfair where there's a number written under every swan but you never know which number is the life-size plush gorilla taking up most of the stand (hint: you may lift all the swans and never find it).

Meanwhile, my signature gets another line...

I bought 1 box, and won it. Its a decent tank, not amazing and nothing groundbreaking or new, but nice all the same. Think T54 with better turret and STB 1 gun with worse ROF and you’re there.

To be honest Wargaming haven’t really thought this through. Most tanks that come on sale most people will have them or at least seen them on sale on numerous occasions but if you want something new now it’s got to be through chests....really! How long will it be before the masses of players see that 5% May aswell be 1% . Not 1penny from me for a gamble just put it on sale at a fair price and I will buy.

It’s more than a little chav, but can’t we have a ridiculously priced gold plated 121B? Something similar to the gold plated Type 59 which the Chinese have on the PC version. Surely they’re going to release a unique camouflage for the 121B at some point, and I think this would be a smashing idea. Imagine the carange that would ensue the moment it was spotted.

I played it on a friends account and it is nice, I have to admit. Nothing new though and I wish I’d tried it before throwing £40 at crates. Mostly got my moneys worth back in gold, so I’m relatively lucky, heard some horror stories of people throwing £50-200 and just getting poosters. If you actually got something decent in the crates then it would entice you to spend more...or even get points towards it like the T9 premium. But paying £50 to get worthless poosters just turns you off completely.

Guys just don't buy it, nobody is forcing you to pay that amount of money. They wrote about the winning chance of 5%, what do you expect from them? 

 

Is it fair? - No

Is it gambling? - Yes

WG is getting money? - Yes, and it's legal.
