So I bought a 14.99 package of 6 containers.  Totally disappointed.  No economic flags, all regular flags.  Camo was ok but geeeez.  I figured if I bought the containers would at least get the economic flags.  You do get the eco flags with the tier 10's which is great.  I have 4 tier 10's so 4 containers.  I don't see the premium shop containers being worth your money.

The issue here is that people see the crates and automatically expect the same awesome benefits as the Christmas crates had.

While I would not be sad to have such good rewards (Imperitor Nickola) it was pretty clear to me that it would be collection parts camo and random signal flags. No ships. And I must of used all my luck to get that one Xmas ship because the few super containers I get or useless flags and modulars but I don't complain (at least not often or very loudly)

That's right.

Congrats on being a dad.

 

My dad was at McDonalds when my brother was born because everyone thought my brother would take as long as I did, so my dad went to get something to eat.

Let me clear, I wasn't expecting special flags or a ship (I already got a ship a month ago, so probably wont see another and that is fine).  When you spend money on special event containers at least mix them up so you get some reg flags and some economic flags.  This is not asking for much.  Spend money, get what you spend.  In the case of these containers, you are not getting what you spend.

That's the inherent risk/reward of a lottery-based system.  There are no guarantees of top notch rewards.

Gotta look on the bright side, those other containers usually had two sets of seven flags and a collection piece.

So a six box set had 84 flags and collection pieces (in some occasions you got a few more flags). These yield 60 good to very good camos and 180 performance flags plus collection pieces(six box set)

 

May not be what was expected but calling them bad isn't fair.

In a way, I can understand them including non-economic flags in the SCs.  Economic flags are available for sale permanently in the premium shop, whereas there's generally no way to purchase non-economic flags in the shop, because they don't want to directly sell modules/flags that boost ship performance.  They want you to earn/win those.  So, with these purchased, "random", SCs they can say you didn't directly buy your "increased fire chance" flags, or whatever.

Sorry, no bright side to wasting your money on crappy flags.

Lol not bad...

My first, I was on my way home from work and the family forgot to call me, it was over when I found them in the hospital

My 2nd, my brother and I decided to walk to get some coffee, 0->baby in 10 minutes, missed it, but it was nice coffee.

3rd, my wife sent me for mexican food, baby was waiting for me when I got back.
