So, knowing the Carny AX was dropping and I lusted after it, I was going to spend anyways, so checked out the latest war chest offers to see if I could game the odds and score enough gold. 

 

17 + 5 Generals later: three tanks I already had dropped (Rover, Hidden, and Sentinal) & some large gold scores meant the gold balance shot up to 16k (I had 1k before). Enough for me to snag a Loaded package for the Carny rather than wait for the basic. Happy bunny so far....

 

....then a T69 (is that right? The T8 US Heavy)  dropped. Had it before, traded it in and this was immediate fate again - for a shiny new Tiger 131 and 900k silver. 

 

Still got 6k in gold plus all the other gubbins that paid out (including loads free XP).

 

Seems the dice rolled in my favour this time & choosing chests where I had a number of Premiums already paid off. 

 

Your experience of war chests may differ ;)

Hello,

 

My experience differ : 

 

I guess I only "rent" those things I dropped during the meantime this game is online. And theoretically I hope one day it should be possible to rent those tanks to another player, because the law recently said so about "used games" -rented- on steam.

 

Will one day all those pricey pixels vanish ? Yes.

Is the only way I add gold to my account since they came out. Sometimes I only come out a bit ahead from what I would have had if I purchased gold straight up but also have boosts and extra goodies. But, several times I have pulled in more than double the gold I would have by buying gold direct so yeah, chest bundles are the only way to add gold for me.

Must admit I did nicely out of the top commanders bundle. Only picked that cos of the number of duplicates I had. Ended up with 2 Kraft Panthers, 3 Pudels, 2 B2s (already had all 3) and Grobtractor. Netted around 31k gold I think, so v happy.

A T69 is a tech tree US medium, the US premium tier 8 heavies are: the T34, the M6A2E1, the patriot, the bog horror, the T32 proto, the T26E5, the chrysler K, the HMH chrysler K, the T34 black, and the captured king tiger

 

so which one of those heavies did you trade for a 131?

The biggest haul I’ve ever gotten with chests was on the 10+3 hero chests for $50

 

I wish I would’ve kept track of the free xp and other things like silver and boosts but they seemed so minimal compared to what I was getting that I didn’t pay attention.  The first 3-4 chests gave me gold, silver, free, xp and boosts, but the next 6 chests in a row gave me tier 8 premium tanks, four I already owned and two I didn’t.  

 

When the dust settled I’d received an alpine tiger, an HMH chrysler K, a defender, an HMH tier 8 french heavy, a somua, and a fortress.  The fortress and the alpine tiger I didn’t own, although I’d previously won the fortress (in a long haul or ranked award chest) and traded it for a tier 7 premium and silver(13/57 I think).  This time I traded the fortress again for a tier 7 (bear kv122) and silver again.   The alpine I decided to keep since I don’t have many chinese premiums (type 59 and 64 was all I had).

 

for the defender, HMH chrysler K, Somua, and the HmH french heavy I got around 42k gold and I think it would’ve been higher but one of those tanks was discounted that week.  So keeping track of the boosts, silver, premium time, and free xp kinda got neglected as you can imagine I was a bit overwhelmed with all the gold.  With that gold I purchased at discounted price the remaining free xp I needed for the M60 (about 175k free xp), the firefly vc, the discounted steyr german tier 7 TD premium, the cheapest eagle 7, the discounted  deathstalker, and a T32 proto, and I still had like 2800 gold left over.

 

so for $50 I ended up with the following:

 

a bear kv122

m60 (although some of the free xp was already accumulated in account)

vc firefly

styer

eagle 7

alpine tiger

deathstalker

T32 proto

unknown free xp

unknown boosts

unknown silver

unknown premium time

2,800 gold

Thanks - I thought T69 was wrong.  From the list, must be the T34.  Had it drop before - thinking back it may have been one of the Twitch-care packages rather than a War Chest. V slow but with a big ol gun.  IIRC, it was a free trade + 900k silver.

That’s a great trade!  A 131 is probably a great trade for almost any tier 8 with a few rare exceptions.  The T34 is a tank I won’t trade because hull down I have carried even tier ten matches plus it along with the type 59 helped me build my huge garage.  But It’s not for everyone and it can be frustrating to play at times.

Drat. I decided to splurge on Hero chest bundle again. No tanks this time round, just gold and boosts - oh well I don't mind supporting the game and it's more fun than just spending on a gold pack.

That’s unusual, of the three I’ve purchased since start of 2019 I’ve yet to get one without atleast one premium tank.  That was my worst one yet when I got a tier 7 I already owned for about 8k gold but the total haul in gold still came out to 17k which is still 5k better than just buying the gold outright.  Plus I also received some premium days, some free xp, some boosts, and a little bit of silver

I never get any new tanks from the chests (except for Tier 3-4 crap that I'll never play), but rather always get tanks I already own. I suppose I can't complain about getting $60-$70+ worth of gold when I've only spent $50 though.
