I'm currently working on 9 months, with only 1 SC. Sure makes collection containers fun!

I remember getting around 1 a month. Not sure what you did WG,m but please bring them back!

9x30=270

Now I often get 2 containers a day. Sometimes 3 a lot, but I also don't play every single day. Missing a day or 2 a month. 

So we'll say 2 a day for 270 days

2x270=540

1 SC in 540 tries. 

1/540=0.185185185%

 

That's NOT very good odds. 

 

I say the 3% and 1.5% is a straight up LIE!

I have gotten none save for the Yamamoto SCs for the past month I believe.

 

Reset the clock for SC posts. :Smile_popcorn:

in the past week, i got 3 within 4 container opens. all using the flag option. before that, i hadn't gotten one in months.

 

it's luck of the draw. you're not guaranteed anything. a 3% chance to win does not ensure that you'll win 3 out of 100.

SCs are a hit or miss thing.  I usually do the consumables for the first 2 crates I get then TYL if I get to the last 1, usually nets a 1  SC a month.  Though 1 time I got a SC on my second container of the day and a second one on the 3rd of the day back in April I think.   Only the speed boost extender mod for the DDs is the only one I use.  Getting 3 minutes out of speed boost is awesome.

RNG is RNG. No one says that you have a higher chance after a certain number of normal containers.

w00t! Got my second 1000 dubloons container last night.  Thats 2 inside 30 days.  

 

I was taking TYL crates the last 3 weeks because of claims they were more prevalent.  Not a single one.  This week, went back to signal crates, got it on crate #2 last night on a signal crate pull.

Still nothing on my end. I think WG hates me. 

Also had another one of those nights where every games was a steamroll and almost all my shots were going in the water...

They still exist?  have not seen one in, well I can't really remember, months I think. I've tried TYL and usually just go with flags and camo, nothing. 

Of course is still love it when you get consumables when you try for credits and xp.

Its 1-3% each roll... it's not cumulative where it's like "oh, he hasn't had one in a while, let's RNG him a gimme crate" I've gotten a grand total of ... 4 (maybe 5) ever since the SC system was released.

The rarity with which they drop and the total lack luster loot, makes them decidedly not super in any way.   My last after months without was 1, a singular engine boost mod, 50% to the improvement in the speed at which engine boost takes affect.  WOOT! I can't tell you how awesome that one is, not like I have a port full O ships that can use it.  I don't.

 

Another in a short list of unimpressive rewards in super containers.  If you only get 1 or 2 a year they should be really good.

Problem is - the only way to get 1or 2 a year is to not really play at all.  I rarely get them but I I will get more than 1 to 2 and don't play every day.  The folks who don;t play often should not be predisposed to getting the really good stuff like ships.

Nope, this is idiotic logic and a good example of the gamblers falacy but in reverse. "I haven't gotten it so therefore it doesn't exist" nope, wrong. A sub 10% chance to get something is still a very small and unlikely thing to do. 

 

Humans are idiots in general when it comes to probability SCs are still there, the chance of getting ships from them is still there, just because you didn't roll a natural 20 for 100 rolls in a row doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

I feel you. I got a few SC when they first came out in November last year, but didn't get any from Decembwr through to late July. Was opening about 2 containers per day (TYL until about March, when I gave up and just went for Flags for Ranked...), with about 3 on most weekends. 

 

Howver in in the last month, I've got 4 from the Yamamoto campaign (for which, thanks WG!!) and an additional 3 from random drops. But not the greatest of rewards: two smoke modules, 25 red dragon and 25x2 ourobus flags, and 100 dry flags (which are actually useful for ranked, heh). 

 

I just want a ship that isn't the Kransky Krym...

But I play every day and try to get 2 containers every day I do play.  But I have only averaged 1 every 6 months or so.   Yes I may go 8 months without and get 2 in one month and then go 6 months without. 

If I average 2 a year then they ought to be Good when i do get one.   My bad luck in receiving them aside, if it ain't super, it ain't super whether you get one a month or one every 6 months.
