What's in the Box? What's in the Box? Anniversary Crates

in case you are wondering what you get for your $2-3 per crate, you get:

 

10x limited cammo to include the V-day cammo (World of Warships Anniversary, Victory Salute, and Hunter was all I received in the mix)

30x regular flags (such as Papa Papa, etc)

1x Anniversary collectibles

 

Out of 30 crates (yes one of THOSE guys), I got zero ships, zero dragon/hyrda/awesome flags, and the collection complete.  Once again, as someone else reminded folks last Xmas - do not buy collection items with dupes until you open all your crates so you can maximize your credit return when the game sells all your dupes when you complete the collection.

I dont know why people buy this crates with collectibles included to begin with if you can get them all in game, so that makes 1/3 of the crate pretty much useless.

Some people just want the juice without having to squeeze the orange. And not everyone plays random matches, or has time to repeat the CO-OP ones over and over.

I was curious as well, and I bought 14 of the crates. My experience was exactly the same as the OPs. All crates had:

10x limited cammo to include the V-day, Halloween and other cammo 

30x regular flags (such as Papa Papa, etc)

1x Anniversary collectibles

 

I wouldn't recommend by the Anniversary crates.

Pay money for economy flags, some camo, and collection items?   Why? 

* camo you can't buy.  That's the only real benefit to the crates... that and to shoot through the collection.

No camo for the t8 ships in the crates?if dont i will no buy

You get the camos by getting the collection items.  So, obtusely, it can be said that "yes, the camos are in the crates".

You said you purchased 30 crates? That means you cost at least $60 on those gambling case,omg, during new year sales, you can purchase a whole year premium!

Were they ALL economic flags such as pappa pappa, or did it include battle performance flags such as sierra mike?  I could see people finding them very much worth the money for those, albeit a bit pay to win, given that those flags are not normally sold but rather rewards for missions and achievements earned in game.

Nah, just "Combat" flags from what I recall.

I have 200 days or so just from buying Premium ships, etc.  But yeah,  Xmas crates are like 1000x better in an exaggerated way of thinking (more like 10-20x better since you get ships, mucho better flags, other good stuff).

Combat flags?  Such as +5% max speed, +1% chance of causing a fire, etc?

Well then, I could very much see folks buying these for those type of flags, since those are not normally sold.

If it had special flags like the Yamamoto collection, I'd probably go for it but it's not worth it when there's just regular flags.

If WG wants something that sells, just start selling supercrates for crying out loud.  Its what everyone expects when they buy the faux crates anyways, and you'll even make money on those stupid modules that no one would buy outright.

To be honest, I have 3 Yamamoto collectibles left and have considered buying a few crates to be done with it

I've been nagging for over a year for them to put the Albany up for sale & they wouldn't since it was a gift for the original players.  Now they put her up for sale and ... volia!  I spent some hard earned cash on this game again.  WG, you want my USD?  Make it worth my while.

How people choose to spend their money is their business and simply thank them for doing so. Everyone values their own money and time differently. In my case, I am a crate boxaholic. I love banging out games with 12k xp, 8k free xp, and 28k captains xp.......Once you go back to 1500xp, and 234 freexp per game.....well you can't...
