So, for 15 bucks I got the 5 General's War Chests, results as follows:

 

1st Chest:  275 Gold, Citadel Tiger, Customize Crew

2nd Chest: 275 Gold, 1000xp, 6 x2 XP boosts

3rd Chest:  275 Gold, KV-4 Kreslaviskiy, Customize Crew

4th Chest: 275 Gold, 25,000 silver, 1-day premium

5th Chest: 525 Gold, 800 xp

 

So what is that, about $55 +/1 worth of stuff had I purchased it the conventional way?

 

The cool thing is I could trade that KV-4 + 2000 gold for the Banshee.... what do you folks think?

Sounds like your got a good deal. It's strange but it seems like everyone who buys war chests either end up getting around triple their value in tanks and gold or end up with less gold than they could have gotten otherwise and random boosts and vouchers. I was fortunate enough to end up in the former group myself.

I mean, the Banshee is basically a Comet with premium bonuses while the KV-4 K is a more unique heavy. I'd say the Banshee is a better tank, but you could also potentially just buy the tech tree Comet if you're willing to train a new crew for it. If you don't think you'll play the KV-4 I'd say trade it in but play a few games in it first just in case you enjoy it.

Yea I enjoy the Comet, one of the best Tier VII mediums imo.

I really like the Comet as well, although I haven't traded anything in for the Banshee since I already own the T23 (which I feel is the best tier VII medium). I was considering trading the KV-122 that I got from a war chest in for the Banshee, but considering how bad the KV-122 is I feel like I have no choice but to find a way to do well in it. :P

Everytime i read a post like these i have the same question: How did you do on the freebie/gifted warchest's?

I think is a valid question because, if everyone that has a good result with the bought ones had already bad results with the gifted ones, it can already encourage  me and probably more people with the same problem to get off some ideas about sure getting probably a bad exchange from them and try some luck.

Some might say i'm not constructive enough... Too bad i'm actually a deconstructivist

Of the free chests I have earned I have opened two tanks. One was the Pz V/IV.. The other was a tier 7 i think. I don't believe the odds are any different

Keep the KV-4K; the Banshee is literally a Comet with an earning bonus, whereas the KV-4K offers a unique tanking experience with its offset gun.

Well. I only ever recieved MTLS from the Chests. And i already had Blitzen so it's bascialy a garage slot.

With such drop rate from free WarChests i defently never going to pay real money for it.

The MTLS is actually a better Blitzen, as it's 8kph faster.

I haven't kept track of the "Long Haul" war chests, but just off the top of my head I think they've all been gold/silver and XP boosts, and I think I've eared 4 or 5 so far? Maybe?

The KV-4 by K is a very good tank IMHO. It has the 107 Zis-24 which is a very good gun. It's big and some what slow but it's steady. I like it.

Keep the kv4 trade in system is a scam.. just wait for a personal offer.. 8 tanks a month go 50% off for a week at a time.. then you get a free kv4 and a cheap commet

I actually have bought quite a bit of those chests hoping to get the KV4 K. It's different and I always like variety. I didn't enjoy playing the KV4 though so I don't know if I would like the K. Although a big reason I didn't like the TT version was because I played over half my games in tier 10 while driving it.
