Completely not worth it, bought the first bundle, for ~9k gold. 

I got back like ~2k in gold, not a single ship drop, only camos, including lunar camos for premium ships that already have premium camo with the same bonuses.

So, a 7 k gold net loss.

This game is becoming shittier by the day and its producers more and more greedy.

You had to buy the bundle to work that out? Really?

No wonder they keep putting crap like this into the game if people can't spot an obvious con when they see one.

Can't second that enough. 

 

There were already unboxing videos yesterday from NA players. Granted I saw only those players that had all 3 previous PA premium ships (Anshan, HuangHe, LoYang), but the drop chance was bonkers. They mostly got the Lunar Year camo, which is pretty meh. Apart from that you get 20k FXP, 8 days Warships premium or 700 dubloons. Rare items are a second perma camo for either of the 4 PA premiums, a chance for either of the four premium ships. 

 

 

And it also looks like there's no ship reroll. I.e. the game detects that you have the Anshan in port and rerolls for another ship from the selection

Fair enough.

 

I imagine that, after today's experience, you are that little bit closer to taking that break.

If I leave the game, there is nothing left to do with the gold anyway.

I thought them good value, I posted my tally in the current 'Irian' thread, but as I recall the ships (or doubloons if you have them) came in the second container, and the Irian in the third. With doubloons income from the containers I ended up spending 6381 doubloons (about £20) and got three ships, three Captains, lots of Prem time, XP, and all the other stuff. I kind of think this is why WG say you need to buy them 1, 2, and 3, the 'rewards' ramp up, you won't get the Irian in the first container no matter how much you huff and puff.

Buying lootboxes without the guarantee of getting at least your money's worth (e,g. with WoT's or WoWP's boxes). :Smile_teethhappy:

Damn... some people never learn. This is why we have fails like Battlefront 2/FIFA/Fallout76... but go ahead by more loot boxes.

Lolish is the fact that we are supposed to spent three times 8888 GL(26664GL) in order to get Irian cruisier and 10 perks special captain ( and cammo from the ciscus decor series).

So far I remember Irian is a complete useless piece of...chinese porceline.

 

So Whaaaaat?

Nobody need that ship and nobody wants it so its pretty much very sporty challenge for those who really dont know what to do with money...

Or maybe im wrong ?

So you are saying that I need to spent nearly 30k gold to get T7 ship if I want her????  Wow, this is a massive con.

Irian is T8, but yeah. I'm not falling for it, I'm going for the free boxes from directives only.

I'd love to get the Anshan and LoYang skins, but with no reliable way to buy I'll pass.

Yeah, my bad, it is T8 so I am running to buy it now ASAP, great value for money :cap_fainting::Smile_trollface:  I doubt they will put into the shop so soon, who would buy this boxes then?

No more money for WG from me for the foreseeable future with the direction they are taking with the game.

No of course not, for whatever reason you are misunderstanding. I 'spent' 26,664 gold on three containers, got 20,000 gold back (which included gold for a tier VI ship I already had), two more ships one of which was the tier VIII Loyang and also the tier VIII Irian, three Captains (including the special one for the Irian). So after deductions I spent about 6400 gold (£20 in the Premium Shop) and got two tier VIII ships, plus the rest including free XP, Premium time, camo, etc..

Started with 29K doubloons. Bought all 3 bundles and ended up with +80K free XP, 56 days of premium, 2 10 point captains and 19500ish doubloons left. So for 9500 or so total spent I dont think it is a bad deal at all.

The catch is it makes sense only if one buys all 3 bundles

It's still a lottery, and buying this thing you're encouraging wg to do more stuff like this, while it's always better to know exactly what you're paying for because those are virtual goods and all the prices are made by wg itself so only because seems that the exchange is "worth" in the game doesn't means that is actually worth in real life.

In short, which is the meter to establish the value of a virtual thing

LWM made a try-out of all three bundles on her account, also several Youtubers did. I feel sorry for you wasting that amount of dubloons :Smile_sad:

 

Also, i will not buy them as the reward is not as attractive as were the contents of such boxes two-three years ago. I mean, @WG: if a customer gives you 32€ worth of dubloons, why can´t you guarantee that he gets ONE ship out of it? The option that i get nothing but camos which are non-historic, non-realistic and really ugly (pers. opinion) is a clear no-buy for me.

 

The "buy-yourself-a-gift"-tombola turned into a "pay-and-get-nothing-useful"-gamble.
