Yeah, I would only buy them for the last items if I don't make it to the end.

Just got the Rudolph pilot, so I'm already on 20 items I think ...

There ought to be a list of which aircraft are available in the bags and the chances of receiving them.  I have many of the aircraft already, so my haul from 100 bags was:

85 days of premium time (not really significant as I had over 220 days already)
19,500 gold (a bit less than I was expecting)
500,000 free experience (nice, but with 3.8 million free experience before I opened the bags not really that exciting)

The Ki-5 (I'm assuming some other low tier aircraft were turned into gold instead)

An assortment of boosters / materials / consumables, most of which I'll never use.

 

If anybody's tempted to buy bags for the Goblin, don't.  I suspect your chances of getting any high tier premium plane are very low indeed.  Certainly I didn't obtain the kind of gold compensation that would indicate I'd received a high tier premium aircraft that I had already.  Also, last year I bought bags from World Of Tanks and, because I have a lot of the high tier premiums in that game too, I received about 40,000 gold in 100 bags.  19,500 gold from this year's bags struck me as quite a low amount.

i haven´t seen anyone who got a goblin. haven´t seen one ingame either so as far as we know, literally no one got one from the bags.

either that or the chances are extremely low. knowing WG, and specifically wowp, i´d put my money it´s bugged

In 100 bags I got...

T2 Ki-5 Japanese

T4 Hs 129 A German

T2 FIIC-2 USA

T3 Di-6I Russian

T5 HE-100 D1 German

T4 I-I6-29 Russian

T5 LaGG-3(34) Russian

T6 P-39N-I USA

T3 86 E  German

 

395,000 Free XP

73 days Premium

20,000 Gold

Bugger loads of Boosters, materials and consumables.

 

Yes, you get more than your money's worth.......but not very excitable stuff. Every bag you open states....'A Very Rare Gift!'.....even for those like just 'one day premium' + '10,000 free XP', which leads me to think the guy thought up the phrase had a very poor childhood.

A good way to get Prem days and Gold....but not much else.

 

Not as good as the WoT boxes, in which I got over €300 worth of goods(includ three T8's) for €100. I suppose WoT spoiled me, which they should, as I deserve it.

 

 

omg, you Are the reason they dont close the Game, too much income for wg :trollface:

Edit for the 16th of January.

 

Unless I'm missing some sort of candy income.. I think this is not casually doable... Right now I'm also on stage 19-20... currently 11 candies between stages, but later on it gets to 20,  30, 50 and finally 100 candies between stages. You can get a maximum amount of 27 candies for the daily missions, plus 3 for every game where you score over 10000 (just assuming most of us are able to do that, not counting the occasional bad game or landslide game where you can't get as much). Not sure how likely you are to get from the chests that are on the path, but I think you'd have to put an unrealistic amount of time into this to make it work entirely without buying bags. Yes, I realize that's probably by design, no matter what they tell you.

There's nothing in this candy hunt that you actually need - everything will be researchable after the holiday season. No special premium planes "now or never".

As i said this gambling game is rigged, the first buy gets you the lowtier premium planes, to make the bags look like you have a high chance to get planes, the second buy will get you nothing but free exp, idk what the next buys might be but i guess you have to spend at least 300€ to get to the stage where you have a chance to pull the goblin. Considering that t8 premiums earn more than enough credits and there are a lot better t9 planes in the game, its not worth it at all. You will never get it with less than 400 bags thats for sure, because that how its programmed and anyone who comes here and tells us that he pulled all the top rewards with just 25 bags is a edited

First batch of boxes gave a good mix of rewards. Second batch of boxes not a single drop of free xp, only premium time, modules and gold. Anyone else having this issue?

TBH, I was a bit peed off getting free XP....I'd rather have Gold and premium time.

Santa's Bags not avalable for because of my country :sceptic: ( Belgium ) Great …...……..

 

 

Your country is doing the right thing. It's a shame that the others don't do the same.

 

In general: Nobody that is not totally stupid should try to get the Goblin from Santa Bags. This kind of advertising really should be forbidden. Same for IS-3A or Defender in WoT or some special T9 tanks in AW. Any other way to spend money is better than this - its even better to go to the casino and spend it there because there you know your chances.

When the Goblin came out it was very expensive. It was the first T9 premium (still the only one ?) in all WG titles. They will not give it away easily in Santa Bags where you also get other stuff.

I have the Goblin (not from Santa Bags) and I can say that its not worth the money. Its not bad but definitely not OP. Get a normal T9 and you'r fine without spending any money. (and on the way there you learn how to use it) Or buy a T8 premium.

This pretty much; the only thing of any value imo would be that tier 3 premium plane, and that is perfectly doable at... what was it? 32 candies?

World of Warships has tier 9 premiums, although only one of those has been for direct sale so far.

It, and the others, can be gotten with either enough free exp, or from the arsenal using coal (which you get from grinding, pretty much).
