So WG you finally did it.

 

You found the [edited]in my armour.

 

Here I am at the end of the event (I'll be at work by the next reset tomorrow) and no AMX CDC.

Oh it was brilliant to run the Blitz fair and have tanks given out in the chests so frequently. I figure well given how many tanks I got in Blitz fair I would just spen $40 on chests and voilá AMX CDC.....nope, nada, zilch.

 

This post is not a hate post it is to inform WG that this event has left me cold and for the first time in my Blitz career wishing I had spent my money and more importantly my time playing other games doing other things.

 

I've been die hard and pro Blitz since I started and this is the first time after an event where I feel completely let down. I'll reiterate that I've spent money and more importantly, my time,with no new tank to show for it. Even if you put up a AMX CDC is the shop tomorrow, in my mind I've already paid $40 with no goods delivered (yes, I knew there was a chance but again Blitz fair was kinda misleading, no one is that lucky, the odds were much better) not really keen on paying another $40. 

 

So please, please don't do this type of event again. Pixel tanks should be sold in the shop available to anyone who want to buy it. My collection is spoiled now unless I'm willing to pay later when the CDC goes up for sale for more $$$ again. 

 

The question I keep asking myself is do I really feel its worth what I have to pay for the sake of my collection. For the first time since March 2015 the answer is no. 

 

Please pass this along to your marketing masters. As an example of what not to do and how to turn a satisfied paying customer into a disapointed and dejected gamer.

I won a T23E3 in the Blitz fair so i can count myself as lucky, the win ratio to get the new tanks is pretty low i must say personally  :/

Question here: If you are a recovering gambler or do not partake in gambling i.e. Vegas, Atlantic City, Indian casinos, etc. are you able to participate in this event?  

 

As far as your post, I am a big time Blitz spender but will not spend a dime on these crates because I think the reward is not good enough for the odds. I already have the IS2 and FMC so I would only be going for the CDC and I don't even think it's that good of a tank.

I like these type of events it's fun to see what I can get, I don't spend any money on the crates, so I have nothing to lose, how ever, I believe that these events are way to frequent. Maybe like one event every season ie winter, spring, summer, then fall.

I just want straightforward grinds. Grind XP and do your daily missions everyday. Bam, get the tank because you worked for it. Simple.

TBH I'm okay with these, but I agree that it would be better to just sell the tank outright.

 

I really loved the Blitz Fair; this Lost Division event, not so much.

This gambling event for the CDC AMX is a huge disappointment for me. They should have had sold the tanks before the crates because I would have had spent less money.

Ah, but that's the point. I bet they're making a killing off this.

I've worked customer service the last 17 years. Luck of the draw makes for disapointed customers. 

I'm sure there are people that spent more than $40 trying to get a specific tank and failed to do so. Its bad marketing, bad public relations.

There are better ways to make money than leaving people cold.

The point of my post is that these types of promotions are not good. 

Anything that leaves a customer with a negative connotation to the event at the end of a transaction is not good business.

I will admit to being a wallet warrior and a sucker for all of their promotions so I bought a bundle of crates.  Ended up getting a ton of credits and gold for about what I would have spent in cash for the same amount of credits and gold but I also got all three tanks and a lifetime supply of boosters so it wasn't a bad deal for suckers like me who spend way too much time and money on this game.  The tanks and boosters ended up being basically free if you take into account the value of credits and gold received.

 

I do wish they would cut back on all of these events.  It's getting to be one after another.  But I recognize they are running a business and make a lot of rubles off of these events so realistically I will just have to live with them and remind myself that participation is voluntary.

People have been complaining for a long time that tanks are easy to get from events, and therefore are not very rare. This is a solution to that.

 

I kinda like the change up.

I don't get a lot of time for these events, so events like this give me a chance still.

I see this from both points of view.  I received little in the event.

Can one that has a gambling problem participate in these types of events, It depends on the person.  Let me switch to the business side.  I am only a gamer (not an employee).

You must remember that World of Tank Blitz is in it for extra income generated.  If 1 out of 10 cases has a tank, how do the company make money?  I agree that the odds were gaining a new tank.  The more time spent playing increases the likelihood of buying Gold.  If you get a tank you do not want or need, just sell it for Credits.

I completely agree that the WG lottery scheme is bad for the player base. For every player who is lucky enough to win a tank for free at a 1:1000 chance, and "won" with purchased crates; there are countless others who got nothing but undesired nominal credits and boosters.

I completely agree Zip.

 

I buy many tanks that interest me.  The AMX CDC is... mildly interesting to me.  So I could see myself buying it, but not at an indiscriminate price point.

 

I do not like the roulette wheel prize schemes, which is why I do not play those kind of games.  It was one of the things that attracted me to blitz.  If I wanted something, I could just pick it up.

I did not need to worry about "rolling something" or "getting lucky."

I could just buy the tank I want.

 

I have spent zero dollars on this event, or the winter bazaar, and if this is the new trend in blitz, I'll be dropping a lot less money.  I don't feel the need to spend on a chance.  I will spend on a sure thing.
