Got a Supercrate the other day.  In it was 250 of those signals that increase chance of flooding and add 5% to the chance of being detonated.  Does anyone use these?

Use in combination with anti-detonation flag.

I use them on my carriers due to the extremely low flood chance of air-dropped torpedoes. They make a significant difference there but aren't useful for much else.

I can see where it would be helpful with torpedoes, but what if I'm cruising in something that doesn't have torps?

Then you wouldn't take it.

Carriers and low-tier USN/VMF DDs.  Starting at about Farragut for the USN and Gnevny for the VMF, they become unnecessary, but my Clemson had a bit of a hard time starting floods against higher-tier BBs (of course, this was before she couldn't see T6s).

 

CVs always can benefit the flag.  The USN flood chance is passable, but I swear the IJN torpedo has a negative flood chance.

Try your luck.

 

Hell, all I've ever gotten on those is 5 "November Foxtrot" flags.  :(

Got 10 millions credits once...would gladly change for that extra flooding chance or setting target on fire flag T_T

 

IJN is all about the damage but against high tiers it's best to send 2 different waves to get the damage done with flooding and fire.

Just got my first Supercrate, via the Try Your Luck option (this was my third Try Your Luck) and in it was 5,000,000 credits....that more than pays for my NC hull B upgrade:)

I use those Flags on all my German Torpedo BB's, since I really don't have to worry about detonations much.

I got 20 million silver just now, which I'm not sure whether I should be happy or not. Granted, I've got no premium and just started the game in September, but for now free XP is more appealing to me. Oh well, at least it's not flags, which I hoard like crazy :/

The credit grind will surpass the XP grind unless you're quite good at the game so I'd hang onto those creds.

Yeah, you're not worried about credits now because you keep getting so many as you reach new level's, but once you reach level 12 and those bonuses stop you'll realize the credit grind is real.

A wasted slot for the most part but hey, you could always ram someone one....that can cause flooding :trollface:

Seriously, 20 million credits is a god send for most people. That is an entire T10 ship or a month+ grinding credits. I have over 1,000,000 free XP right now and it's doing nothing.

When you start grinding high-tier ships, you'll be grateful for the huge cash reserve.  The grind through most T9s, factoring purchase of upgraded modules into account, will cost you almost 1.5 times that.

 

This assumes you don't put upgrades on.  The T9+ upgrade slot choices come in at 3 million each, the T8+ one 2 million, and the T6+ one 1 million.  For just those slots alone that's more than 25% of 20 million.
