Should I submit a ticket?

 

I spent $1, $3, $5 and another $5 for a total of $14 on these things last night.

 

Did I get anything good like a ship?

 

Nope.

 

Here's what I got:

 

Zulu signal flags: 60?

India Delta flags: 15?

 

Ocean Soul camo: 60?

New Year 2017 camo: 40?

Games Con 2016 camo: 40?

 

The numbers are rough estimates of the quantiies.

 

I feel like I just flushed $14.00 down the loo.

 

Should I submit a ticket based on the fact that there are reported glitches and everyone else is winning ships and other good things?

It's a lottery. I'm not sure why so many people are complaining about what they got. At least it's not possible for them to be empty.

Because some people open 2 packs and get high quality ships, other players open 10 and get nothing, this creates jealousy and resentment of both the players who do score well and of WG

 

Like it or not, this is what lottery systems in games where real money is involved does.

Yes but remember you will be talking to a potato in customer services.

Perhaps you're on Santa WGs naughty list?  :)  Not really ticket worthy IMHO, this promo is all about the gamble.  Oh and fun..  yeah lets not forget the fun...   But really.. that's about fair worth of goods for 14 bucks..  again, all my perceptive -- you might think differently. :)

People have been saying there's a glitch in the system.

 

The descriptions also promise that you will always get more than fair value.

 

More?  Yeah right.

That's more than 5,200 doubloons worth of camo. Or about 16$

I guess it could be worse. I would totally flip if it was a bunch of Victor Lima flags

More value than what you spent. As in, if you get camo in a $5 box, the doubloon value of the camo is more than $5. 

 

It might be $6 but... hey they didn't say how much more than $5.

It's what they decide is fair value or not. Not what you do. Submitting a ticket because other people got better gifts than you will do nothing for you and will go nowhere. It's a lottery, rng based, luck of the draw.

it cant hurt actually the worst that can happen is they say no. The best that can happen is customer service throws a few extra containers your way.

Pretty much. You get what you get. Nothing more, nothing less. The ONLY time I'd even remotely consider a ticket based on any container is if (especially for these) I opened it and got nothing. You got something. /thread.

When the containers were launched a month ago I won a good one and then ever since I have been getting crappy ones. I must have hit the "go for the big prize" option 50 times since then and have gotten nothing but 5 signal flags or 5 camos.

 

So this Secret Santa Stash defeat is just salt on the wounds.

Go shovel a neighbor's drive way when it snows to earn back your precious $14.

 

As people have stated, it's a lottery, you cannot complain that you lose. If you can't handle losing, you shouldn't play.
