I dont know about the technicalities of this but I would like to be able to purchase chests with gold. Ex if i had 850 gold lying around, you can really buy any prem tanks with that buy seeing as thats the same price as a heros chest  it gives you the opprotunity to get something good.

I'm about to drop some cash on a 10-pack of hero's war chests when I get home. I'll let you know how I do.

 

It's my birthday on Saturday, so I get to treat myself.

I am happy to see the lowest tier of chests now has 10% drop rate for tanks as opposed to 5%. 

I might pick some up now. 

My main complaint with chests is the hero crews : Everything else in the chests is always useful. 

Gold, silver, boosts, free exp - always great. No matter how much you have, can always use more. 

Premium tanks - terrific. Get one you already have? More gold!

'Hero' Crews - useless past the first one generally. I opened a bunch of chests last time and got 6 hero crews and 0 premium tanks. 

I don't need three Jim Whites. I don't even need one Jim White. Or Karl Kraft. 

I wish there were a way to trade in the hero crews for something useful. (Maybe duplicates give you gold...?)

The only hero crew I actually wanted to receive was Bogatyr, and only one of him, to drive Soviet Light tanks. I got three of him. 

 

The snakebite skill is good but I bought a crew that had it from the war stories. 

I really don't like how the expensive chests *increase* your chance of getting a hero crew.  I would think these crews might be most useful for newer players buying the lower tier chests who don't have well skilled crews just laying around like veteran players do.

HMH M51 (already owned) 9440 Gold

Cromwell Knight (already owned) 4740 Gold

RaiBot01 the war chest description on the news page is wrong. The description of the General's chest is a repeat of the Commander description.

 


 

"Need a hand rising through the ranks? Load up on special Premium content from the General’s War Chest to get some extra fire on the battlefield! Each Chest will always contain a minimum of three items (with a small possibility of four items), which can be any combination of the following:

  • One of 15 powerful Premium tanks from Tiers V-VIII, including the HMH M51 Super ShermanAdler VK 45.03, and the KV-4 by Kreslavskiy
  • Up to 1,025Gold
  • Premium Account time (1 day)
  • Up to 175,000Silver
  • x2x3, and x4 XP Boosts
  • x4 Crew XP Boosts
  • Up to 2,600Free XP
  • Crew Vouchers
  • Hero Crew with special Skill

Commander’s War Chests are available in denominations of 1 War Chest ($1.49), 4 War Chests ($5.99), 10 War Chests + 1 bonus War Chest ($14.99), and 25 War Chests + 5 bonus War Chests ($36.99)."

Thanks! Having some friends over and playing Cards Against Humanity. And my clanmate and I are trying to recruit another friend into WOT. He's already in the US Army, and served in an armored division, so he might be an easy recruit. :)

I’d recommend removing merc premiums from loot boxes as they aren’t really that useful. (Atleast for myself)

Yes, I saw that too. Not sure how they managed to miss it as it should have been copy and paste from past ones but oh well. I imagine they'll get it fixed up within a day or so.

Alright, well I splurged and bought the 20-crate Hero bundle. This is how it panned out:

 

1.  425 gold, 100,000 silver, 1-8x crew boost

2.  925 gold, 1-4x xp boost

3.  725 gold, 50,000 silver (server timeout, had to get the value from the log)

4.  425 gold, 3-3x xp boost, 1-5x xp boost

5.  425 gold, 1-10x crew boost, 1600 free xp

6.  425 gold, 1-10x crew boost, 1-8x crew boost

7.  1675 gold, 600 free xp (server timeout, had to get the value from the log)

8.  825 gold, 50,000 silver

9.  425 gold, 1-10x crew boost, 1600 free xp (server timeout, had to get the value from the log)

10. 925 gold, 1-4x xp boost

11. 425 gold, 1-10x crew boost, 1600 free xp

12. 825 gold, 50,000 silver

13. 425 gold, 1-10x crew boost, 1600 free xp

14. 425 gold, 100,000 silver, 1-5x xp boost

15. 425 gold, 1-10x crew boost, 1600 free xp

16. 425 gold, Somua Nomad, garage slot, 1 crew voucher (gold value for Nomad, since I own it)

17. 425 gold, 75,000 silver, 1-10x crew boost

18. 425 gold, 100,000 silver, 1-5x xp boost

19. 425 gold, 2-10x crew boost

20. 425 gold, 1-2x silver boost, 1-10x crew boost

21. 425 gold, T28 HTC, garage slot, crew voucher

22. 825 gold

23. 925 gold

24. 425 gold, 75,000 silver 1-10x crew boost (server timeout, had to get the value from the log)

25. 425 gold, 100,000 silver, 1-8x crew boost

26. 425 gold, 100,000 silver, 1-5x boost

27. 1675 gold, 600 free xp

 

Total gold (before Nomad): 16,975

Total silver: 800,000

Total free xp: 9,200

 

Feel free to check my math, as I did this in the dark while hungry.

 

Not sure how much I got for the Nomad, but before the chests I had around 4,000 gold, and after buying the Shock & Awe package, I have 20,000 gold remaining.

It’s 8:55EST and they’re not available for PS4 NA region.... or is it just Florida? Weird things happen here.... it’s weird that it’s PS4 that gets hung up this time around instead of Xbox.

Thanks.

 

I'm overall pretty happy with the haul. I traded the HTC in on the Lowe Black, and I'm liking the TDs in the bundle so far. And I think I got more crew vouchers than I thought, because I had 5 when I looked. One might have been from the Bravo op, but not the other 4. I love me some crew vouchers! Really happy with the offerings this week.

The drop rate stated for tanks in the Commanders War Chest appears to be wrong.
It's stated at 10% but it's actually at the original 5%.
@Raibot can you confirm?

Thanks!!

 

 

I am still not decided to try these war chest or not, hoped for some discounts for 5th anniversary or better tanks earn rates :) And also always was interested how the tanks which can be gained from war chests are decided, can we know that? That would help maybe me to decide if to wait for next edition of war chests or to try these ones :)
