Depends on what you’re going for. Buying Gold yourself is guaranteeing you’ll get your value back. Buying crates can give you way more than what you paid for or they can give you the “same” value you spent. That is in quotations because same value is counting free xp, silver and stuff like that as spending gold to get it.

 

As for me I only buy gold and utilize the long haul crates. I’ve never had any luck opening them, plus I have some addictive tendencies that if I did buy crates I might fall back into. Gambling ain’t no joke and to me that’s what the crates are.

gold is just gold, buy crates and you can get gold plus other goodies.   
I'm only as good as the map they give me.

if you want gold, it is not worth the crate

 

You are guaranteed to receive 150Gold in every Commander's War Chest...11 chest is 14.99 in the basic case you get 1650 gold. But 3000 gold is 14.99 (if you open a tank worth it but otherwise i don't think so, they are packed with overpriced useless stuff)

Check the tanks on offer in the various crates and go for the crates that make the most sense. If you own alot of premium tanks then you can get very lucky. From one purchase of £25 hero crates last time i got a Kraft Panther and 3, yes 3 Tiger Hammers! All owned at the time! I was gold rich!

No it's really a thoughtful decision, look at the tank offered in the hero chest. If you have almost all of them in your garage you can buy the chests for gold without hesitation. If not, buy gold directly. That being said .... if you win the Chrysler, AMX 45 or the king tiger in a trunk, do you really need gold after that?

The tank you wanted to buy was maybe just a dung compared to the one you just won.

Buy gold and wait till you get a special offer on a premium tank something you like and suits your style play or the weekly 50% off tanks, besides that don’t waste your money except for buying premium membership to benefit silver and xp on your grinds. 

Crates are garbage, if you do take that path cross your toes fingers legs and arms for luck. 

the last opp for a free tier 8 was the scourge I think and since then it’s all been mercenary contracts and garbage low tier alpha bravo Charlie opps besides that no free premium tanks to earn. WG want you to spend spend and spend so think before everytime your tempted to buy... do you really need it and will you use it. Premium tanks are only good for grinding silver anyways, having premium membership access is essential if you want to make your grinding easier and quicker.

If I need a bit of gold for moving equipment about and such, if the boxes are available I'll usually buy 1 hero chest instead of 850 gold, I've gotten lucky once or twice. I got a Patriot in one of them.

yesterday I buy for $ 50 of heroes crate, I got 18,000 gold + 50PT PR (VIII Heavy) + Type 59 (medium VIII) + many goodies, bonuses and other. If I take into account the marketable value of what I collected (Gold + tank + bonus) with my $ 50 I got about $ 250 worth.

 

I did not buy the crate because I wanted to play roulette, I wanted to get gold to buy the Glory IS5. It has happened that it is less profitable to buy crate than to buy gold but it is more rare. Generally it is more profitable.

If you already have most (or all) of the premium tanks that could be awarded, the crates are a MUCH better option.

Because you get the GOLD value of the tank you already have.

If you get three or four tanks awarded you already own (out of a 20 + 7 crate), you could double your earnings, compared to just buying gold.


 

If you have none of the tanks on the list, just buying gold is probably better if you already have a bunch of goodies.

answering my own ? - crates still out-yield buying gold - atm. the 'Hero's War Chest' packages get the most(everything) - imo....:)
