Now, before I get into this, I realize that they cant just give them away every single time we do the "Try your luck" but seriously? The chance to get a supercontainer is apparently so low, I can only get one once a year or even less than that. I have only gotten maybe 2 since they started giving the containers out, and when I got them they were just flags, and not even good ones. I think they need to update it to where the chance of getting one goes up even if just slightly whenever you dont get one. It would make things just that much better even if just slightly.

 

Just a small rant...

Just be happy with the regular rewards and when you get a supercontainer you can rejoice. They are also giving away supercontainers with the Yamamoto campaign.

What was that expression again...?

Oh yeah, I remembered. Beggars can't be choosers, don't complain about free stuff.

Oh wait, you do have a choice -- to NOT click on "try your luck".

I've been going with TYL, and have had four in the last month. Sorry for stealing the luck...

So here's what you need to do.

Never pick Try Your Luck. Pick something that's more useful to you more often. Try Your Luck is intended only for people who do not need anything the other options offer. The increase to your chance for a SC is extremely small. 

Stop seeing the three daily containers as being there to give you Super Containers. In fact, just stop thinking about SCs at all. Forget they're even a thing.

Play the game normally, gathering useful things from the three normal containers you get every day.

When you eventually do get a SC (like I did the other day, first in a very long time) you'll be surprised, and ideally have a split second of wonder what a Super Container even is because you've put them so far out of your mind.

 

If you pick Try Your Luck every single time and breathlessly expect to see a SC, you're going to experience nothing but disappointment and frustration. Adjust your expectations to match reality.

It's been so long that I almost forgot there were super containers. Thank you for reminding me.

No prob OP, I've got the solution for you! You can have back the old "daily" missions, you know, the ones that reset every 36 hours? 20 plane kills for 12 credits and a ham sandwich sure was worth it.

even when you do get one which for me is about 1 in 55 tries, they're pretty disappointing (25 dragon flags, flags , flags) not really worth it cause your paying for consumables the whole time your TYL containers....

I usually get about 10 containers per week. Have gotten 2 supercontainers this year, neither had anything worthwhile.

3 or 4 weeks ago, I got 2 in a row.  I think some are just having bad luck.  I have gotten dozens of super containers.  I even get them whilst going for flags and camos.

Last month I got 2 from one of the campaigns (Yamamato I think).

Both had 50,000 free xp, so there are some decent rewards, just don't expect to win everytime.

I see one rarely, but then I don't play as much as some of you.  So, I don't expect to see them  very often.  I guess when I do get one, I get a little excited, then open it, and see what flags I get this time.  Honestly I would rather have the regular stuff I'm expecting than the stuff in most SC.

 

I am not complaining, since it is all free stuff, and I still enjoy knowing that some of them contain nice stuff like ships.  I just haven't earned enough of them to expect to collect the good stuff, some day (maybe).  Oh and I don't do the try your luck.

You only have like 600 battles... how many containers have you even earned? 

Long enough to know that the frequency on supercontainers are really low for me and its irritating.

You can.  I think you can look at the numbers of containers opened in your in-game profile under achievements.    There are achievements for the number of containers opened (Supply Officer). You have to keep track of the count when you open one.

I find a super-container about once every 50 normal containers. I've gotten 2 in the last week, and I think 4 in the last 2 months.
