They really need to create a "Special Mod Slot" on all ships that would allow these mods to be mounted.

you are wrong, i would never buy them

 

I would prefer other things from an SC, too, but you knew this was random and you chose to buy ships you never want to play. You knew you were gambling...

I donno. Every one seems to be super angry about it. But I've only ever received a single upgrade. (Hydro, and I popped it right onto my Perth. Wouldn't ever dismount it.) and I'm desperately still looking for Smoke & Radar.

 

Though I feel like the Spotter plane mod is a complete waste and needs to be removed.

 

(I can't really complain, I've gotten enough free XP containers to buy a Nelson.)

I'd find use for every single one of these modules, because WG moved the module slots. AA module, for example, is great on T8+ carriers. Radar module is awesome on pretty much any radar ship. Fire duration module is good on BBs (if it goes into the fourth slot, don't remember this one).

 

And anyways, this is free stuff. Quit complaining.

Spotter mod is good on Warspite and some mid-tier RU cruisers (Molotov, for example).

 

It also helps if you're running spotter plane on some ship to help you shoot into the smoke (the angle makes it much easier)

After getting a Duca from a Yamamoto SC earlier this week, I'm expecting nothing but spotter plane modules and crap flags. Anything more than that would be gravy.

There is a rather easy solution to this problem of stupid upgrades in super containers.  Make a 3rd container type, call them special containers or something, and put all of these stupid modules in them and then give them a drop chance of like 20%.  These modules are not worth a supercontainer and mostly sit unused so there is no reason to not give them out more frequently.

I got a spotter plane module, 100 detonation flags, 100 zulu flags and 100 zulu hotel flags. Great rng here...

Still thank you for the free stuff WG.

But thats the rub, isn't it?

You say no one wants the special modules - however, thats not quite true.

There are plenty of us out there that are smart enough to understand the value of the special modules, and use some - if not all of them.

So - I guess you're not speaking for everybody, are you?

In fact - other than premium ships and dragon flags - there is nothing I'd rather than to receive more of the special modules in super containers.

I have all the premium time I need, have more than enough dubloons, and all the economic flags I will ever use - besides all those things are available in the store.  I very much like getting access to things I otherwise couldn't, through the SCs.

Currently, I am using radar, DF AA, Hydro, Speed (X2), and DC special modules on various ships in my fleet - and I am hoping the SC I receive today will give me a few more. 

So - to sum up - I guess you're not speaking for all the players, but rather just for yourself.  My best advice is to try a couple of the special modules on an appropriate ship (radar mod on a US CA, hydro mod on a KMS DD, speed mod on a French CA or VMF DD) and see if you don't find it a very useful addition.

If you haven't actually tried out any of the special modules, well - then your opinion isn't worth much, is it?

neither are you, many people consider this modules useless, because they are, a few extra seconds of whatever you using is not worthy of that slot they are going to. These things should be removed from the damn supercontainers.

I got 3 SC's this morning. One was 100 fire time reduction flags, fairly useful. The other two were "special" modules. -.- Radar and DC, both of which to use would require me to give up something MUCH more important, and in the case of the DC mod, rework the captains skills as well.

 

No, thank you.

 

I went 6 months without a SC, in the last 3 months, I've now gotten 6, 4 of which have been those mods. So, saying the chances have dropped means what, that a couple months ago all 6 would have been utterly useless? The only mod I got that was worth it was the smoke mod, which I got for Perth, and I had to buy after the CoE event.

 

For most of the base, the mods are useless, and I'm sorry, but a "Super" container worth 625k credits isn't really, well, super. If the mods were available for actual credit purchase, say 3 to 5 mil credits apiece, I honestly wouldn't care, but I'm getting fairly tired of finally getting that rare beast known as a "Super Container", only to be let down massively by the lack of "super" in it. I realize some get amazingly wonderful things in theirs, when they get them, and I'm totally happy for them that they do. The very best SC I've ever gotten was the first 3, when the program started, in which I got 250 no det flags, 250 speed flags, and 250 DC2 consumables. Not one container has come remotely close since. In fact, the fire reduction flags I got today are hands down the best things I've gotten out of the program since the very first containers.

 

For me, personally, I gave up caring about SC's as of today, I'm tired of getting my hopes up, and having them smashed. But, then again, the way SC's work and how it causes many to feel is pretty much how we feel about WG a lot of the time.

 

Funny, that.

So - you're saying you have tried the special modules and haven't found them useful?

4 minutes of speed boost on the Saint-Louis, extended periods of 45+ knots on the Udaloi, a significant extention of hydro use on Z46, and 45 seconds of radar use on Baltimore certainly make trading in the traditional slot choices more than worthwhile, imho.

But I guess everyone's mileage will vary.

And some folks aren't going to be happy, regardless of what is contained in the SC's - judging by the last line in your signature - Ima guess you're one of those folks.

75% of my SC's were special upgrade modules.  Way to pop my balloon.  :Smile_sceptic:

you are wrong, again, i hoped for flags(any flags) camouflages (as i collect them) or even doubloons would be handy, ships? i have every premium ship available in SCs, not some useless mods.

Of 12 SCs I got for T10s, 4 were the worthless supermods. They don't seem to have lowered the chance at all. They suck, and are why I never select TRY YOUR LUCK when I get a container. And whenever I get a random supercontainer instead of what I picked, my stomach sinks. Because I will get a pointless supermod, for sure.

But all the other stuff I got was great and useful. So very thankful that I got something, and happy WG had this celebration. It was also kind of them to make T10 ships cheaper during this event. 

 

WG really needs to remove the supermods from SCs altogether and sell them for doubloons/credits. Or give them away in a way that does not disappoint the recipient. Putting them in supercontainers is a waste.

Only 2/8 were mods with my SCs (one of which was the radar mod that I wanted) and rest was free xp, camo, flags and premium. Worked out for me

Fair enough - and I don't much need camos (I purchase as many Restless Fire as I figure I'll need, as its the most useful to me - when they come up for sale), and I can purchase all the economic flags I need, and get the combat flag rewards for FB, Conf, HC, DS, Kraken, Arsonist, Witherer and FW often enough that I can pretty much run them on any ship I choose - so I don't much want them in my SCs.

You don't need to worry about Premium ships - if you have all of them, you won't get a duplicate - so moot point.

I do, however, recognize how much value there are in some of the special modules (having tried all of them) - and don't want them to be a purchase item - lest every DM and Donskoi has 45+ seconds  of radar, and all the French CAs and VMF DDs are running around at 45+ knots.

So - we all have the same odds of being disappointed by the contents of our SCs - not just you - so its "working as intended".

This!

well if you like spending your money so much, maybe you should buy me some flags and that sweet +100xp camo, which are superior as a reward as a lot of these useless special mods. no reasonable player would consider these as a "reward" worthy of a supercontainer

4th slot is pretty useless, and that's where a lost of these upgrades go. I only got one special upgrade from the seven SCs I got yesterday (hydro mod, which I immediately put on my Maas), and wish I've gotten more.
