    Containers - Are they Gambling? My thoughts...

    I don't know if this point has been made earlier in the thread, I didn't read it thoroughly, but from my calculations, every item in every box, "hit" or "miss" is actually one where you're making a profit. After spending what could readily be determined to be "too much" on santa gifts 2 years ago, I actually last year (and again this year) calculated the approximate cash value of each of the items. The goal of this excercise was to determine if I was getting a net "return on investment". The simple answer is, yes, yes you are. I can't find my sheet from last year, but I recall it showed that, on average, I got a bit more than $2 in product for each $1 spent. This year, excluding the freebies, on my 20 Big gifts I'm sitting on a $2.62 return per $1 spent (actually this ratio is higher because I didn't account for the discount for the 20 pack). After standardizing doubloon costs (I used 1D = 1/2 cent = $.005), calculating the purchasing power of FXP, and assigning a value to coal (worked out 1k Coal = $0.47), there are no options on which you lose money. (Note: Right now my values for the new camos and the "Asian" camos are extrapolated). I'm not going to post it here, but if you want to see my calculations and make a copy of the sheet I used for your own haul, feel free to PM me.

    Battle of Jutland Event Fri Nov 30th

    I actually put together mostly balanced rosters based on the ships present for the main battle.

    Clan Battles season 4?

    This is total though not uninformed speculation but my thought is we'll either get CBs in 7.11 (with or without cross server play) or it will wait until 7.13 (8.0?). I strongly doubt they'd launch a season in holiday time.

    Halloween Premium containers??

    If I were to guess based on all signs and signals, I would guess they'll come up on Halloween :)

    While it may not be "esports" in the traditional sense, we do have an active competitive scene. In fact, the King of the Seas tournament starts this weekend and there's still space avaiable in the NA bracket. Details HERE

    There was a hint that it would start during the Royal Navy event.

    Servers down?

    They usually go down for awhile on patch day, I think the official estimate was 6-9 am EDT

    Esports for wows?

    Yeah, there's still a bit of work to do yet to make competitive WoWS into "good TV". Efforts are being made, just not there yet.

    So what time does the Super Container event start?

    Usually 7am Eastern from my experience is when things will hit. Oddly, while my daily containers reset, my daily missions haven't
  12. This, plus the server may still be in Cali even though the WoWS team isn't.

    RN Event in Plain English

    @Gneisenau013, the issue is how does one earn Guineas and how much will it cost to acquire them. Niether of these topics are adressed.

    Glad Guineas were unclear to someone else. Could use some clarity there WG
