At this point, anyone who is still interacting with WG’s bundles and containers are just asking to be scammed
@Kieran it takes two to tango, or to scam
@Kolyma indeed, one genius and one fool. Which one is the player base ?
I suspect each bundle an independent event. The odds then are 1-(71/72)eN, where N is the number of bundles opened. In this case the odds approach 1 as N increases but never actually equal 1. It would also result in a distribution like that reported in the poll.
Absolutely true !
@Patrick Smith Doesn’t take a genius to figure out it’s not a independent event. If the first bundle didn’t hit the jackpot, the next bundle’s possibility slightly increase. The possibility is “dependent” on the last try.
If you want a FREE ship this bad, you kind of deserve it. I mean, someone has to pay wg…
I decided to buy 5 Containers so support a free to Player game and was lucky.
And that’s why I am not paying a penny to WeeGee, and instead grinding out the early access to get Kijkduin (tier 6), and possibly higher.
Definitely nothing should go to the organisation that is being investigated for money-laundering
I’m starting to lose interest in WG and these bundles have a lot to do with it. If i want it ill grind it.
I just wish they gave more than what you get for each 1000 doubloons!
Sorry, but who – after the last years’ actions – still throws money at WG is either an idiot or rich enough to burn money in his fireplace instead of wood.
Sorry but even i don’t throw money at WG, which leaves only rich people with enough money
WG wont stop this type of selling as long as people are buying it, WG would be the stupid ones to stop selling it.
Guess I am an idiot then, as I certainly aint rich lol.
@Valhalla But an idiot might actually not know that he is rich, so… 🙂
Not everyone works at McDonald’s in their 30s
I got it on the second bundle. Was only going to do three. I don’t think the poll results reflect the reality. There’s definitely a large number of people who would just hit the last option. That being said, WG is scum incarnate when it comes to microtransaction FOMO manipulative bull.
The guy who decided the business model at WeeGee is a genius.
People will pay almost any amount to get their precious little pixel ships “before the plebs”. Reminds me of one of the truest sentences ever uttered by any man (P.T. Barnum in this case).
“There’s a sucker born every minute.”
The sad thing is that it is a ligit strategy
Or “a fool and his money are easily parted”……
Ive not been buying random bundles for years. WG sells their reputation all the time
Got the 80 token pack as the first item, so I just bought it to get the camos
Wait, WG is focking over the community again? And people are throwing money and defending it? Jeremy: *Oh no. Anyway…*
I trust that prince in Nigeria more with my money than WG
People love the thrill of gambling. Especially when there’s a guaranteed win in there somewhere.
if players want to pay thats no problem, the non even chance of getting the ship, well that’s another story.
I remember when eairly access was free…
Save your money boys….subs are coming!? And you know there will be an OP “rare” premium sub haha
I guess the key question is how “random” legally does a “random” drawing have to be, is there a legal requirement that it is correctly proportioned, have WG made any statements to the odds in connection to it? Having played in SecondLife back when they allowed Casinos I have seen pretty much the worst of regulation in this regard
By your precise calculations, that means that Wargaming has scammed over $4 million dollars off players. Now, that’s just the 58%. Think about the rest of this poll and all the other players who Wargaming cashed in on that didn’t respond to the poll. That’s a lot of stupidity out there!😲
While these bundles seem to be wildly skewed against early wins for the ship, it’s not like WG is money laundering or anything.
“At a gas station in Arkansas” has surprisingly become my favorite phrase of today.
