At this point the only reason I'd see for getting christmas containers would be if you could get otherwise unobtainable ships such as the Iwaki Alpha and/or Arkansas Beta (oh how I wish I had an Iwaki) OR if they included ships that I'd really, really want (Kidd and Roma) AND the other ships in the prize pool are ones I already have so I'm more or less guaranteed to get ships I really want without RNG having the chance to throw other ships at me (basically if chances are that I'd pay less for those crates to have a good chance at getting the ship I want compared to outright buying the ship bundle).

 

 

So yeah, you can essentially dismiss the second reason for being delusional, ergo WG oughta bring out some really special ships as prizes or I'm to maintain my little boycott until I see WG steer the game into a direction that fills me with more confidence as opposed to the idiotproofing, every ship gotta have a special gimmick and who cares about BB overpopulation anyway attitude I'm seeing right now.

That anthem in the port though :cap_hmm:

But the port was Hamburg (*) - so kind of appropriate, no?

 

(*) Only one more day of waiting for Hamburg - best port yet IMHO. :Smile_Default:

  • 15 special signals "Red Dragon"
  • 15 special signals "Uroboros"
  • 15 special signals "Hydra"

Gigantic New Year's gift (High Tier Crate)

  • 2000 doubloons
  • Destroyer of the VI Gallant
  • Destroyer of the VIII Loyang
  • Battleship VIII Alabama
  • 15 camouflage units «Type 59»
  • 30 units of camouflage "Frosty spruce"
  • 30 special signals "Wyvern"
  • 30 special signals "Dragon"
  • 30 special signals "Red Dragon"
  • 30 special signals "Uroboros"
  • 30 special "Hydra" signals

Other possibility from all crate is

  • Nikolai
  • "Thundering" (Gremmy)
  • Kamikaze
  • Tirpitz
  • Mikhail Kutuzov
  • Atago
  • Belfast
  • Loyang
  • Prinz Eugen
  • Alabama
  • Kii
  • Kidd
  • Atlanta
  • Blyskawica
  • Indianapolis
  • Sims
  • Scharnhorst
  • Leningrad
  • Hood
  • Warspite
  • Anshan
  • Molotov
  • Arizona
  • Dunkerque
  • Perth
  • De Grasse
  • Duca d'Aosta
  • Mutsu
  • Gallant
  • Admiral Graf Spee
  • Huanghe
  • Giulio Cesare
  • October Revolution
  • Hunter (Okhotnik)

 

Crates can only be bought in batches of 5 or 20 pieces and cost 0.76 to 3.95 (converted RUBELS) per crate. So I'd say it's safe to assume that on EU we get 1€, 3€ and 5€ crates

 

 

Greetings

 

 

 

 

A couple neat ships, but too much filler that can (and knowing my RNG: will) sneak into the prize pool before you get anything you'd like to have.

 

For anyone that doesn't already have the Gremmy or Nikolai, or doesn't have the Belfast or Kutuzov but wants it, it's a (very low) chance of getting those ships (like seriously expect all other ships to pop-up before you get those you really want).

Another piece of information: You won't get double ships (like some did last year) because with 0.6.15 WG altered the code, so that the content of each box/container/present will be determined at opening and NOT AT BUYING.

 

 

So unless you don't have each buyable premium ship, there's little chance for stocking up dubloons via ship doubling (only valid for christmas boxes! Don't know if valid for SCs that drop ships).

 

 

Greetings

Too bad they increased the prices quitea bit. Might spend 5-10 bucks on those, but seriously, 5 camos are a possibility? I know they are good, but come on man. ...

As I have said years ago, selling Iwaki/Arkansas would be absolute heresy beyond heresy. :fish_viking:

 

 

Anyways, any idea how long these crates will be on sale?

overall small crates not worth it, medium and big.. meh... chances are that you will mostly get special flags/camo, and while they are excellent i dont find them that attractive enough to spend so much money to get them all for free xp grind (cause they work best in combination of 3-4 special flags+papa papa+xp flag).

 

for ships more or less i have all premium ships i want (although i wouldnt refuse belfast or MK, but chances are too low for them).

According to the several reddit threads this years containers contains lot of signals&camo, ships are quite rare and so are doubloons and premium time.

Overall buy or not buy depends on how much you value consumables. If lot then then this is event for you. If not much then stay away from this event.

it's a lottery, and like all lotteries you have to be lucky.

 

From opening 30 crates without a single ship to 3 premium ships in 5 medium crates (both read on reddit).

 

It's true, however, than premium time and doubloons are more valuable to me than camos, and those frosty camos are the most common thing out of crates.

You can buy Scharn for less then 40€ how much you might spend on those medium crates 2x5 is equal money.

Thanks, with that in mind, I think I'll give them a wide berth. :Smile_sceptic:

Oh, you too. I didn't get one either. Ironically WoWS seems to have camo "Type 59"....

I'm going to spend the money I set aside for the 1 year premium offer on the boxes.

So that's around 70€ I'll be spending, maybe I'll get lucky.

Zoup posted a nice video in which he said the boxes give good value, so I'm betting on that.
