Using mxStat....

 

Since May 23: 

159 Luck containers of which 8 were Super Boxes. 

 

Percentage: 5%

 

What's yours? 

 

Remember, you need to filter on 'getting' and 'luck' to exclude super boxes you may have gotten apart from the luck option.

5% is really high.  WG won't give actual numbers but anecdotal evidence to date says the rate is between 0.5 and 1 %, with TYL being double that base chance.

I've gotten all mine from the other types of selections. The boost to chance for try your luck isn't worth the loss on consumables, flags or credits unless you absolutely do not need any of those things.

Over the past 6 months I've been sort of lackadaisically keeping tally of the number of supercontainers I glean from "try your luck." It seems that I get one every 30 tries or so. Therefore, about 3.3% for me.

 

As with any game of chance, sometimes you will have a run of good luck and sometimes you will have a run of bad luck. Once, I got five supercontainers in eight tries. Once, I waited over 50 tries before I got another supercontainer.

 

What we call luck is just our perception of how random events affect us.

I agree that 5% is very high.  That's around what people were getting when they first came out.  

 

Kind of a funny story...  I picked TYL containers exclusively for, I'd guess, somewhere between 6-7 months at an average of about 10 containers a week without getting one.  Of course, it got frustrating enough that I decided to keep track of how long it would take to get one and ended up getting one the next day lol.  Then, I decided just to switch to credit containers and got two supers within a week IIRC.

Your profile say you've played 17 battles at level 9. Must have bought a ton of crates

Still kind of hard to get 159 crates in 20 games though I'd think

I've been overly lucky, so my figure of around 6% is probably an outlier, well outside a few standard deviations.

Are you talking about account level?  I thought you meant tier 9, sorry.  You start earning containers at account level 4 though according to the wiki.

ME IS SMART ME CRACKED MYSTERY!

 

No, actually, this doesn't include any bought containers. Keep trying, chief. One day you'll figure it out.

I was doing okay at around 1 every 30-40 TYL containers but just recently went on a streak of ~80 TLY with nothing so I'm done. 25 Dragon Flags, some useless mod (600k), or 100 random flags isn't worth what I just gave up. In those 80 containers I could of pulled down 4-6 million credits or 3x as many flags/camo and still had the chance at a SC. After this I have to say I feel strongly that TYL is for suckers. I feel like I'm at one of those coin op claw machines that are rigged to slip off the prizes.

It all depends on what you want and how you play the game.

 

If you are somewhat of a "unicum" and have no problem getting awards or completing campaigns then you probably will have most of the credits and standard signals you need so an increased chance of getting dragon flags and other "special" signals may be worth it.

 

If you are an average player, especially on who plays for free, then you probably rely on containers for your signal flags. In this case, "try your luck" is probably not worth it.

 

If you are wealthy and have a port full of premiums, a locker full of purchased signals, 50,000 doubloons, a year's worth of premium time, premium camouflage on all your non-premium ships, and a reserve full of 19-point captains then what are you even doing reading this thread?

 

All that said, I still go "try your luck" because of two supercontainers that were well worth it. One contained an Arizona and the other 1000 doubloons, which I used to purchase permanent camo for my Cleveland.
