Welcome. In this topic I'm going to explain why you should get the Strv 74A2 with the 8 tickets, rather than getting the 45 tickets. 

Ok, so firstly, why do you want to get the 45 tickets? Of course, you want to exchange them for standard (2 tickets)/ Legendary (6 tickets) chests. You dream of getting the IS-3 Def, KV-5 and so on. Now, there's a lot of controversy on this. Some players are getting absolutely sucky "prizes", while some are actually lucky enough to get dream tanks like the IS-3 Def. Now, it appears to me that a low percentage of these chests actually contain one of those dream tanks. In short, you don't have a high chance of getting one of them.

Summary for getting 45 tickets for chests:

1. Very high risk

2. Low chance of getting your dream tank.

3. You might get prizes you dun even need (e.g. 100k creds which you can earn easily)

4. Yes, there are good prizes in chests, but do you seriously think that you ever have more than a 50% chance of getting one? (Do some reflection on this point) Do you think WG will seriously give you more than a 50% chance of getting your dream tank even in a legendary chest?:(

Now let's move on to the Strv 74A2. It is a considerably good tier 6 tank, plus you get 8 tickets with it. With the 17 tickets you got earlier, that makes it 25 tickets. With 25 tickets, you have quite a reasonable number of shots at some chests. So if you get the Strv 74A2, you can open quite a number of chests too., plus you get a good tier 6 tank you might want to use to grind creds.


1. Its confirmed that you get a tank, and a considerably good one at tier 6.

2. Since there's not much chance anyway of getting your dream tank in chests(what ever that may be), you might as well try your luck with 25 tickets, which you can use to get quite a number of chests..so you can still try your luck. And that's what opening chests comes down to. Luck. 

If you have no luck, even if you open 45 tickets worth of chests, do you think you'll get what you want? 25 tickets is alr a lot.

And that marks the end of my analysis. Good luck and may the odds be ever in your favor. :)

Chest is a kinda a SCAM.,but many people actually get what they wanted.,if you're wanna get your dream Tank without counting on RNG then wait for the Auction tank cost to reach your favorable price

Am I the only one laughing at those who got the tickets instead of STRV? It was a very obvious choice to get STRV because in the first few free tickets you got from the stages were rigged. So from the event, I got the Pz S35 x2, Tetrarch, Pz II J, Pz B2 (which I already have) and STRV, which was a very good deal to me
