I got the T-22 Medium in the third crate! 

I wasn't going to buy anymore if I didn't win it but I'm glad I at least went for it.

Lucky .
Enjoy being obliterated by Sheridans that you won’t even be able to see :P

For somebody who has written some pretty toxic rants about crates you seem to be incredibly lucky with them.

All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.

Time to die.

yes best 4k you spent next time on crates you will post "worst way to lose 15k gold got just s...... boosters"

 

it just surprises me how well WG are doing their marketing

everyone moans how bad crates are and how WG should stop selling them and yet everyone rush to buy them as soon as they hit store :)

if they invested same in the game this will be best mobile game

I only spend it on crates if it's reasonable and only once. It was the three crates for 4k which is nothing.

Too many boosters should drop credits or gold instead. If I want boosters I'll open up my missions and free containers or buy a bulk from the store.

I agree better pay 500$€£ for tank and extra 300-400 for camo and/or attachment.... But crates NO never..

I will buy crates if the odds and pricing is reasonable. The 4k deal for 3 crates equals 1333 gold for a 5% chance, and thus an expected cost of 26667 gold for the T-22.

 

That's almost reasonable for an OP tank, so I bought it. And got really lucky: main prize in the first crate.

I still don't know why WG invented the "collectors" tank type, and then never uses this to nerf overcooked tanks (like the T-22, or the Smasher (even though that's not OP in my hands)). That way they can sell tanks like the T-22 in the same way like the 121b, for gold or a reasonable amount of money.

The status has been made when they removed half of the tech tree. They could not just create a 100 new premium tanks, instead they came up with this idea. Additionaly, tank being collector does not mean it is supposed to get buffed or nerfed. It is just a different color.

Get your math right...

20 crates for 26667 all right, but those 20 crates won't give you a 100% chance at the T-22!

 

20 crates give you a 64,2% chance at succes (= 1 - 0,9520)

Where did I say I get a 100% chance with 20 crates? Was not going to buy more than 3 crates, so your math is meaningless to me.

 

Get your reading skills right.

I went to win T-34-3 from the only and first crate I bought. I know I have used all my luck and refuse to buy any crates...

While I was tricked into getting the Smasher (costed me way too much), I have absolutely no desire to get the T-22, which means I won't fall for the crate trap this time. 

 

Sure it's OP, but I suck at tier 10 so why would I want one? I still have a AMX 30 B which I got for free, I haven't even tried it because it's worse tier for tier than the prototype which I already struggle in. I mean, it needs calibrated shells to be competitive which gives it 2,8k DPM. You meet tons of tanks with 3,5 - 3,6k DPM or more. You don't even have a reliable turret and everyone can HE you on 90 percent of your tank. Why would I want another tank I'll never be able to drive somewhat properly, lmao (I hate bad gun depression (everything below 6 degrees)). 

 

I rather drive the Smasher. I brought me to 4k points in ratings in a couple of days. Always low tier, which makes me a better player in the tank. I might sell the AMX if there's an interesting offer in shop and I don't want to spend money on gold at that time. I can always buy it back since it's a collector after all. It would be exactly the same with T-22. 

 

I wanted to try my luck with the 3 crates for 4k gold, but thinking about it, it's just a crappy deal. You don't get anything of value in case you don't get the tank. We need more crates like the Chieftain ones (for money, with the amount of gold you spend money on in case you don't get the tank).

Touchy eh...?

If you didn't mean to say that, why did you say this? Maybe bad writing skills? :)

Seems to me your where just adding up the 5%'s until you reach 100%. No problem, nobody's perfect...

 

You just wouldn't want to give people the impression 26k gold gives you certainty about getting the tank while it only gets you 64% chance and NEVER any certainty.

No. 1333 gold for a 5% chance = 26667 gold EXPECTED cost. That is not actual cost or guaranteed cost.

 

Seems you don't understand the concept of "expected" as it regards to math/statistics. Been asleep in high school?

 

For me this is so simple I can't explain it further. And the whole point is to compare the expected cost to your own estimate of value. Is the tank worth more than 26,7k? If yes, then just go buy those crates. If not, don't.

Haha you're so full of sh**t it really cracks me up :trollface:

 

"Expected" by who? Your momma? Your goldfish? The butcher's dog?

 

Just admit you don't understand basic statistics and we'l leave it at that.
