So I actually like this concept, it offers a decent proportion of gold generally at a nice discount. You also have to work for it, providing somewhat of a motivation for the general player to do well. A pretty nice deal imo, and might decide to cash in on it.
 

Though, at Christmas time these gold boxes were available as they are now, and I’m offered the 7.5k gold box again. Curious to know why some people get 20k gold boxes, or 4K ones and so on. Is the deal based off how long the players been playing, his/her experience or...?
 

Just wondering how it works, thanks

I’ve gotten only 16k, but it’s such a good deal for someone like me who only buys something like every 5 months. 

 

No, I’m not defending German technical superiority, I’m stating the ****ing obvious!

I'm still pssed about that. I didn't get the deal, no gold for me period:angry:

The algorithm's don't like me. I'm definitely not spending much any more, $5 for the BP last month and 5500 gold for the T34 which I got through he Operation and already had. Guess I'll stay on strike for a while.

Right on. It might’ve been 16k I was thinking about, opposed to the 20k one that might have been in the store at Christmas. But anyways, they’re still different amounts by a large margin. Not complaining though, 7.5k for $15 CAD is a bargain.

Did you play a match today? Pop up offers appear after you’ve played (or won, not sure which) your first game.

I play almost every day. I missed out on the last fill-a-crate-with-gold offer from a while ago. Are you seriously telling me there is another one I'm missing out on?

Pretty good offer for what I normally receive.  I’ll probably snatch it up.  I recall the big Xmas gold box is 20k for $20 but that’s usually the best deal on gold I ever get.  This is still excellent.  Now can I get gold offer for the T22, badger or Action X?

Now here are a couple questions:

 

1.) I only got offered the 3.5k version for $5. Is that proportionally that good of a deal?

2.) Does the box expire? Or does it have to be filled within a certain period of time? I am headed into finals week in grad school, and I am playing less than I used to. If it must be filled in a certain period of time, it likely won't be worth it for me.

3.) I have heard that these box options are some of the better Gold deals, aside from Xmas time. Is that correct, generally speaking?

 

Thanks!

1) yes it’s a good deal

2) The listed expiry date is how long you have to fill it up. You can purchase the box at any time within these next 8 days or so.

3) yes that’s correct, generally because you have to work for them. A marketing strategy.

I’ll be saving the gold for when the action X comes around again too. But I’m still curious to as why your offered 16k while others get 7.5 and 3.5 etc. What’s the algorithm behind it?

So, I need some further clarification on the box expiration.

 

I see an expiration timer that was originally 8 days. Once I purchase it, how long do I have to fill the box before it stops accruing gold?

 I like the option to fill gold boxes up and I really liked the last event. 

I haven't gotten the offer yet but then again I haven't played a game today either.

Please see the pic above.  I have 12 days to fill it up.  Good thing is you can battle and see how far you get before you need to make a decision to purchase the box.

That’s the question.  I make fairly regular purchases and usually find my deals lagging behind those who don’t spend a lot of money.  I would say this is rare for me to get this kind of deal.  I recall a year ago or so some folks got pop offers for like 12.5k gold for $10.  I’ve never gotten that good of a deal.

8 days. You have 8 days to fill the box, and the same 8 days to buy the box. Or whatever the time stamp you may have in it. Mines 8 days, if yours is a different size, it may be more or less.

Mine’s eleven days, but it’s a 16k box.

I have the 20k gold for 14 days at $20. 
  I’m filled up to the 14k mark - so I’m pretty sure I’ll finish it in time.

That is quite a good deal. So you think the amount of gold varies depending on your establishment within the game? Are there multiple factors that are taken into account of this. Seeing you’ve been playing since the near beginning, and your one of the highly skilled ones, I can’t imagine these factors aren’t contributors. Interesting, we’ll probably never know the full answer.

No idea. 
   It may be ones mission level, ones recent avg dmg, or WG May just ‘roll the bones’.

I received a gold box notification after my first battle today. I clicked on it and it took me to an empty container page, with a "store" button. I clicked on that and searched the store, but found no offer for a gold box other than the normal ones.

Sucks.

I’ve  also only been playing tier X for the last 8 days. 

I’m feeling all good about how good of a deal I’m getting and you drop an extra 4K gold for the same price.  I’m a moderate spender and you are a big spender.  Could this perhaps be a deal based on your spend?  I wouldn’t be upset with that. 
 

All I know is that Ronaldus/Cletus ticket will bring down the Society.  They’ve got my vote now!
