I have to say WG has hit a new low with the premium containers.

 

Quote

The Premium Rogue Wave container is guaranteed to include:

  • 15 Fuel Tokens
  • One of the following: the permanent Master of the Water World camouflage for one of the Tier X destroyers (flag_United_Kingdom_c1f75d7cca85dc4b4820normal_578f4cb5e5bd1007d5df8ade07a8c4836X Daring, flag_USA_dd9fc06d19a8638f4077ab2fe200d22normal_578f4cb5e5bd1007d5df8ade07a8c4836X Gearing, flag_Japan_740b57e1da9b5d3fe46b61e09e3dcnormal_578f4cb5e5bd1007d5df8ade07a8c4836X Harugumo, flag_Japan_740b57e1da9b5d3fe46b61e09e3dcnormal_578f4cb5e5bd1007d5df8ade07a8c4836X Shimakaze, flag_Pan_Asia_3b66d1136c736e56c9f2f7cda2normal_578f4cb5e5bd1007d5df8ade07a8c4836X Yueyang, flag_Germany_18970d883c7758b53538983bd09normal_578f4cb5e5bd1007d5df8ade07a8c4836X Z-52, flag_Russia_6ce701e1c2f2ac3909a68a0a7b23normal_578f4cb5e5bd1007d5df8ade07a8c4836X Grozovoi, or flag_Russia_6ce701e1c2f2ac3909a68a0a7b23normal_578f4cb5e5bd1007d5df8ade07a8c4836X Khabarovsk), 400 doubloons, or five Post-Apocalypse camouflage patterns
  • One of the following: 10,000 Coal, seven days of Warships Premium Account time, 50,000 Elite Commander XP, 1,000,000 credits, or five Type 59 camouflage patterns

(Emphasis added)

 

Take a wild guess what I got from one container I bought to test them? :Smile-angry:

onely one thing is wrong is that in the event does not replay as is says. one of the mission in potic is not working properly. it says for sencondarey gun hit. it does not work or senario as it say you can do it in. onely in normal battle. fix it or make it right.

This better not be what we get instead of steam sale. 75 Euro Alabama + 2 random premiums that can range from actually OP Enterprise to solid like Massachusetts and Kidd to garbage like Asashio, GZ or Prinz Eugen is nowhere near -75% on one of the best T7 DDs.

 

Also, "Blyscawica for Ranked Sprint". I'm looking forward to seeing people who never played Blysca before bring this thing to Ranked Sprint with underlevelled captain (because not included) and give the enemy team a free "First Blood".

You know we will get screwed. Basic WG mentality.

Three effects all in play at once here:

  • Short, individual, time-limited offers, providing a sense of urgency and encouraging impulsive buying
  • [expensive] loot boxes: a large investment in a product that you won't know the nature of until your money is spent
  • Bundling specific ships in with lootboxes: the overall product may be cheaper than buying 3 ships individually, but I'm paying more than I otherwise would want to if I only wanted one specific ship

I spend MORE, rather than LESS, money, unless I planned to buy two randomly selected premiums anyway (I didn't, and I suspect most players didn't).

 

I have no intention of purchasing lootboxes for that price. If, instead, you offered me the choice of any three T8 premiums for £64,  I would have found that a very attractive proposition. But then you wouldn't make a tidy sum from whales, or those with a weak constitution who are prepared to keep gambling until they get the ship(s) they wanted.

 

I don't like to be negative, but this really puts a spin on the traditional meaning of a 'sale'. Lootboxes aren't so unpalatable if they are a reasonable price, but this is taking gambling to a new level. At least give us the choice to guarantee what we're spending our money on (not exactly a novel concept), even if the offer is slightly less generous.

Where are our -75% discounts like our Steam-brothers got?
Where is our full doubloon compensation like our Steam-brothers got?

 

 

Or is "the value subjective", per XradarX?

I set up a second account on the steam version just to pick up those ships in the sale.  As for the Lootboxes though meh! Strong shades of FUT. Lootboxes need to go away full stop.

As I'm from Belgium, is there any way to buy anything from their shop?

Legally: no (as it should!)
There was a "workaround" though, accepting of gifts is still possible, so you can have someone else (abroad) buy it for you, then gift it to you. IIRC the Belgian Government was informed about this hack, so that loophole should also be closed right now.

Why don't have have in-game doubloon discount for ships which are discounted for cash in store?

Last year we had same discounts in-game and store.

And still no new premium t7+ ships for doubloons in arsenal.... (Massachusetts and other new ships released in last 1 year+)

These sales are getting worse and worse over time.

Sorry, but the summer sale is hardly value for money. Well, maybe the tier 8 at 30% off is, but the tier 6 deal isn't at all imho.

Can you gift these to your non steam primary account?
