Maybe I'm not understanding things completely, but it seems like the regular boosters are better than the legendary.:playing:

 

It says that each sweet booster will earn you 10 birthday candles, plus for each victory you and your allies will receive 3 additional candles.

 

So 8 sweet boosters will mean 80 candles, plus any additional candles for victories, is that right?

 

So why would somebody exchange 8 of those boosters for one legendary booster which will just earn you 60 birthday candles for 1 battle?

 

Isn't 80 more than 60?:justwait:

I plan on saving the Legendary boosters till the end.  Read below:

Once the "Blitz Turns 5!" operation is complete, the Epic Sweet boosters will be deducted from your account with compensation. Compensation for one Epic booster is 1,000. Compensation for one Legendary Sweet booster is 100.

So you're not planning to go for the event, and you're just gonna save them all and exchange for gold?:playing:

 

I guess that works too.:justwait:

80 is only more than 60 if you have the time to play 7 additional games :)

I’ve noticed a strong lack of Spare Parts. Is that intended?

No, it is not. This problem will solve itself with time. Many players have several dozens of vehicles in their Garages, so they don’t have enough Spare Parts for the entire vehicle fleet. But you will gradually collect enough Spare Parts to unlock new slots for purchased tanks in time.

I am playing.

I am using the rare boosters (i have enough credits).

Any extra boosters will be turned in to Legendary.

The Legendary boosters will turn in to gold at the end.

 

Edited to add: in the Store, you can get 5 Legendary boosters for 250 gold.  If you do not use them, it will turn in to 500 gold. (250 gold profit).

interesting. Do you know if there's a limit as to how many somebody can buy?:playing:

 

If somebody has 10,000 gold sitting in their account, can they basically double it and get 20,000? That sounds like a no brainer thing to do, if it's possible.:justwait:

Watch them patch this after people rush to buy them up lol.

 

On that note..there are 160 people in the T5 Q alone today...185 mediums total in Q....so basically I wont get play a medium in T5 for the next week.  So should I go TD or Heavy to kill all these new CAKE Mediums?? :)

If you have the Krupp, it plays against them pretty good.  

Or just play the ARL and watch them bounce your front.

I've noticed that in battle almost everybody has the "5" logo next to their name, but not everybody.  The only thing I can think of is that it tells us who's using the sweet boosters or whatever it's called.  Is that really what it's telling us?  And why would we care who's using them?

yes that it what it is telling us and it matters cause if you win, you will get a bonus from each team member that had a sweet booster installed. . . i think 3 candles per teammate.

I would swear the 5 shows up next to my name if I have CAKE enabled or not.  Diddle me this tho Batman....there are more people in the T5 Q than there has been in two years...and yet...yet...I end up in T6 battles still 50% of the matches using a heavy T5?  No MM bias here as usual tho.

We care because if we win, we get 3 candles for each sweet booster in use.

This may be a thick question, but regardless of which booster you use (or hoard) how do you tell how many candles you have and what level your gift box is at. Mine just keeps saying claim with noc change in color and no number etc.

Just claim them :)

 

That seems to be the point of this event.  It's really easy.
