^^ this^^

 

The last 3 sets of war chest I've purchased have had a combined 8 premium tanks in them. Spent $150 to get probably $300 worth if tanks and gold.

If you're just after gold and silver I would suggest simply buying gold. Then play the game and earn silver.

^This^ unless you have a ton of premium tanks already, you probably won't be happy with what you get out of the chests. The silver you get is a paultry amount too.

To get a good gold value from the war chests you have to already own the most of the premium tanks currently in these war chests in order to get gold refund for them. Otherwise you probably wouldn’t be happy at the end.

But if you already own the mentioned bunch of premiums - just for instance: when I need gold I buy the $100 bundle with 20+7 Hero’s war chests and usually I receive averagely about 40-45K gold (instead of 25K gold for that money if I buy gold directly).


Don't rush me, I'm waiting for the last moment!

They relocated the Long Haul chests into the Monthly Ops rewards.  Winter Bravo and Charlie both have no Long Haul, but offer free chests as rewards.  We weren’t getting WChests as Monthly Ops rewards for most of the last year.

 

I also have to echo what’s been said about owning lots of tanks already. If you want decent chances to earn gold-for-duplicates you need to have enough vehicles to up those odds.  I no longer use Trade Ins just so I don’t miss the chance for extra gold.  Don’t hold your breath for any discounts either.... it’s a massive cash cow.

Not in Canadian currency.   It’s over $130 CDN for the 27 hero crate but the American is $100 and the rewarding contents are the same.   We lose value here that I don’t even bother with them.  

 

It’s much more cost efficient to buy the 25k gold pack for $100 in Canadian.   There’s no guarantee with warchests.   I’ve heard of players getting less than 25k gold cause of all the dumb stuff they put like vouchers etc.

If it is that bad use a VPN and buy them using a different currency through paypal
