Is Super Container independent of history?

If you have got a lot of great things from super containers (a ship and mods) recently, will that decrease your chance to get more super containers in future?

As far as I can tell not. But maybe you could try and tell the game to give me some of your luck.

Hi USSDICK,

​It's hard to tell. There might be an algorithm. I just got my first super container since the week it was introduced. I had opened over 150 containers before getting it. I'm expecting the next one spaced out the same
way but hoping for a pleasant surprise.

You should use "I am not a crook" as your forum signature.

There was a post a long while back (I think from Pigeon?) that mentioned that chance of the same item twice in a row was very very low because it's weighted to not give the same item you got until some time has passed (so you are very unlikely to get premium repair and then premium repair back to back in super containers) but chance of a super container itself is not changed.

When you choose to collect any container What ever you get in it is pretty much random with no consideration of what you have ever received from any previous container

Hmm, I my previous two SCs were both 5 mil credits, so that second must have been really rare then.

Ya i should play the lottery then if it's suppose to be rare to get the same back back. Last 4 containers were 10 mil credits then another 10 mil credits plus 50k free xp last two.

Just like the Powerball your odds are exactly the same each time.

To be fair this was after they made the change to not issue duplicate premium ships anymore, so it may have come along with that change. Either way, weighted against doesn't mean impossible so yeah you could have just gotten really, really lucky. Best thing I've pulled out of one was one dose of premium time so grats on two doses of credits assuming you needed them!
