it’s beginning to look alot like gambling.
at least im the owner of my csgo skins not like this shit. when the R8 revolver was introduce every one riot in reddit about how OP was in the time and valve nerf it this communist in Minsk just wan to milk the western cow
I like the idea of the Christmas tree and the tank but the fact you can buy all of them boxes, is stupid imo
SO you find a new website ??
Im not that concerned but I dont have a gambling disorder so I guess this does not affect me.
The event is pretty cool though.
this gambling part of this fine event is really bad :(
Eh, the monetization people fucked up again. No big deal imo.
It’s pay to win
took me 2 hours to get to 8 and almost at 9
Honestly? As long as they make this a holiday only thing I think it’s fine. Like Circon I think the tree/tank decoration thing is pretty cool, and having the ability to “buy out” of the missions if you don’t really want to have to rely on RNG for the missions is fantastic and wouldn’t mind seeing more of something like this in the future. I think everyone is a bit upset at the “gambling” of getting premium vehicles included with the buy out option.
I think you’re looking at it wrong.
Wargaming as a company exists to make money. They really only care about the people playing the game insofar as the people playing the game keep making them money. Do you think Pfizer or Bayer give a damn if you come begging to their headquarters with an illness? Hell no, they only care that you go buy their medicine to make you better. So here we have a situation where Wargaming has decided to give people the option to pay money to shortcut the ‘grind’ for the holiday event. Perfect, those people who work 60 hours a week and have the extra money laying around but don’t have the time or want to spend the time dealing with RNG on missions can get the event done and over with and get back to having fun. Fantastic. Oh, but the marketing department is like “wait a minute, I smell an opportunity here.” So instead of just offering a package to get the decorations, they decide to offer up some nice juicy tier 8 premiums as an incentive to get people to buy the packages and make money. Of course just giving away vehicles isn’t a smart idea as they’re worth lots of money, but if they make it a chance that you might get one of these vehicles, Voila! More people are going to spend money to buy the packages than otherwise might because they just might get a vehicle out of it. That is marketing 101, get people to spend money when they otherwise wouldn’t by offering something ‘extra’.
As others have pointed out as well, the cost for the small package guarantees you get 250 gold as well as a single decoration. Even not including the gold you can get by chance or the vehicle, the gold/money ratio is the same for what you would get for getting the largest bundle of gold available from the shop of 25000 gold, making purchasing gold this way incredibly efficient if you don’t want to drop a large amount of money for gold. The fact that you get a chance at either more gold or even a vehicle is just a nice little gift from WG to make a great deal even better. On the other hand the larger bundle gives you flat out 12500 gold, all of the decorations, and then one of six other “bonuses”. Looking at the rewards we can see that you get an option of 30 days of premium time, another 2500 gold, and four tier 8 vehicles. 30 days premium I think we can all agree is useless, and 2500 gold is useful, but nothing spectacular. Both cost about the same and if you include them with the 12500 gold you end up with a bundle that is about the cost you’re paying for it. Anyone with half a brain should be able to conclude that THIS is going to be what the majority of people who purchase the bundle are going to end up with because how much does 2500 gold or 30 days cost vs a tier 8 vehicle? Exactly. You are paying the cost of the bundle to get a gold or gold/premium time equivalent to the money you spent as well as completing the holiday event. I won’t make any bones about it, you’re actually getting more out of the bundle than you’re paying, which is nice, but this is not a great deal and the only reason to buy this bundle is so you don’t have to spend the time dealing with completing missions for the holiday event.
TL;DR: If you don’t spend money on the game, why are you whining?
If you do spend money on the game, why are you whining about getting a fantastic deal with a chance it may get even better, or an option to completely buy out of the event and get more than you paid for?
And if you’re whining about “gambling” in the game, why are you paying so much damn money for a CHANCE at a tier 8 premium. All of these vehicles have been available for purchase for less than the cost of the bundle, and will be again.
and this 100% or less discount expired when???
The gold per dollar value is actually not bad at all in those $1 packages. 250 gold for $1 is the same value as the 25,000 gold for $100 package, so that’s decent. The problem is the whole “you have a good chance to find” crap after it. I bought five of them and only got the standard 250 gold in all five. Now when I hear “good chance” I think at least 50% chance I’ll get it, but apparently “good chance” according to WG is actually an almost nonexistent chance.
Oh god. oh god. oh god. GO AWAY COD SUPPLY DROPS!
what i am actually surprised about in a positive way is that its really quite doable for joe average player like me … sure played quite abit today but im already 2 points short of reward IX so really… good on them … on the other hand with that said the only type of customer for this payment would be people doing it for the gambling kick because you really dont need it for the tree… which is really quite streching what a video game is or better should be about … imo
CSGO LOTTO xD
Ok, somebody pls explain me;; You can buy One box, or from1-20 of that one box… for 1 euro 1 box. OR; bundle. So… Whats with left “Decorate your tree” that is grayed out? and Snow-Tank on the right side allso, they have different lottery? Or you only buy random box in the middle, and mabe you get something from the tree or snowitzer?! ( LPT + Garage slot) ?
anything that is gambling is bad
Just as bad as the holiday loto tickets Think the other tanks are gonna be after new years
how long do these missions go for? my pc is away being repaired and i dont want to miss out
I don’t mind the lotto effect since you at least get what you pay for. The €50 gold package gives you 14500 gold normally. With the event you get 12500 gold + a gift worth at least 2500 gold so at least 15000 gold for €50. Plus the free stuff in the garage of course!
i immediately thought of csgo lotto, and the fact that one of the reasons why those guys got in so much trouble is because they were enabling kids to gamble (illegal in the US btw), which is literally what’s going on here. While it might not seem like a big deal with those €1 packs, that “small chance to receive a Patton KR” could encourage a lot of pack purchases from kids (meaning more illegal gambling). this is some really shady stuff.
the main problem I have with the shop part is that either you buy EVERY decoration, either you buy 1 RANDOM decoration.
So if on the last day of event you maybe miss 2 or 3 pieces in order to complete the set, you can either spend 50€ and get them plus a bunch of stuff you dont need ; or spend 1€ per 1€ until you get the right ones. And rolling games have taught me one thing : if you need 1 item, you can bet your ass you’ll get everything 10 times but never what you actualy want. So in the end people could spend 20€ on single decorations and end up still having to buy the 50€ pack because they disnt get what they wanted.
I rather have each item sold separately for like 2€ each (so double the price) or still 50€ in pack ; than having to rely on luck or money to get them. Like tokens for tank marathons : you get to buy the ones you need, you dont purshase a random one…
lol CSGO lotto,comXD
csgo WoT minimalist
opened 12 boxes and got the Patton that was cool
That’s so shady man.
I just got 23800 gold and a garage slot from the €49 package. got 10900 extra gold as I got the skorpion but already had it.
Dont fix if it aint broke wargaming!!!
easy money for WG… kappa
The lotto thing is a bit dodgy, BUT WG has corrected their mistake from last year so this is definitely an improvement. Seriously, the chance to get one of those tier 8s through random chance or 2,500 gold? Come on.. No way in hell would I ever consider getting that. WG still has some steps to take with their festive season ideas.
for €49 the gold and all the unlocks this is actually a pretty sweet deal. great for people like me that just won’t have the time over Xmas to do the missions due to work and family but have the spare cash from working so much.
I gifted the 1€ box to my friend and guess what he got a Patton KR no kidding.
i think its bad that they dont put out the win probabilities. winning the Patton might be 1:1.000.000, I mean, it´s WG
was playing today i noticed how badly this game biased towards mediums and lights… where are my quests for damage blocked or dealing damage while stay hidden?
wg can fuck off i put all my free exp in the heavy tank line and they only give you discounts on the TD’s >:l
looks like they copied overwatch business model very well
The €1 box is nice, but I agree that this is the first instance of gambling and we have to get used to it. Before, WOT was a game where if people had a rare tank, they either won it in a contest or bought it at the right time in the premium store. Now we’ll see people drive around in Skorpion Gs or Libertés which have not been in the store for some while because of sheer luck. And I don’t like that.
I’m not very clear on the special yet but it seems you get a shit tonnes of boosters for almost no effort. Got 10 for 2 games. with those 2 games I also got enough decorations for the lvl VIII rewards. I’d say this compensates for the gambling money grabbing annoyances.
Well a BUNCH of people will spend a lot of money on this and Wg knows it. Money before everything ellse.
The gambling thing is just to stay relevant and make investors happy. And I’d be cool with the gambling if they stated the odds explicitly.
Well, 2500 gold cost 10e. If you buy ten 1 euro boxes, you get 10x 250 gold plus some decorations. In addition there’s a chance to win extra gold, week of premium or patton KR. It’s not gamble because you can’t lose, even in worst case 10e gives you 2500 gold + junk. It’s actually better value for money spend for gold.
You get the gold value if you already own the tank right? If so then I might have to try the big crate…. Own all but the mutz so as long as I don’t get the prem time or 2500 gold thats like 10k extra gold or a mutz for $10…
wargaming has become really anti consumer over the time I’ve been playing and I know for fact it has made me, my friends, and some of my clan mates a little angry and unwilling to want to support them. I never recommend this game to anyone and if they express interest I tell them not to get it because it has gotten really bad IMO
so I just found this new site…
The effort put in to build this Christmas feature is probably similar to fixing matchmaker……
Decs go up to lvl 10 apparently
I kinda wanna buy one of the 50 euro ones because I want gold and I cant do every mission for the ornaments because of college/finals
where can i find the 1 euro pack, im on asia btw
