In September, I got 4, and I got 1k doubloons a week ago, consistently going TYL. It's treating me alright :cap_haloween:

Replying to Torak:

True, I have not seen one in 2 if not 3 months, and I get 2 containers a day, taking shots at super-containers alot.  Been playing 8 months at a fairly constant rate. They have definitely lessened the chances of winning one. Don't believe me?  Since we can't fight in RL(where you would lose LOL) we could go fight in the game . ;)

 

In reply to the OP, yea, I have seen some "weird" regulars ones, with slots for ship and cmd.'s and such

Wow, I'd take that in an SC.  What option did you choose?

Not too bad at all

I've gotten 4 Capt. places and free port slots before, but never together

I got the exact same the other day.  It would be great for a collector, I suppose, but I think I have a little over 20 open port slots and god knows how many available reserve spots lol.

It's great for a F2P cheapskate like me.

I got mine -294 since the last one.

I don't open the containers until I get an SC win, so it took me 15 minutes just to get through them all. Clock reset, let's see how long it takes this time. :Smile_Default:

 

Oh, got 100x Zulu Hotels (one day I will get a speed or smoke upgrade.....one day!). Not bad to be honest, grateful that WG introduced them (thank you)!

I open an average of 2 containers a day and haven't got a SC since early May. I think this thing is rigged. Perhaps Prem players have better odds.

Right?

 

Sometimes the contents in "stealth" supercontainers are better than what you get with actual supercontainers.

 

Case in point:

When it is a supercontainer, but aint...

...you could be right. ....doesn't say they should tho.. ...there's a Locked Thread you can find from Akula6000 (or something like that, don't remem the username offhand) about how to get an SC every time....there's a trick to it....I tried it and it didn't pan out...or I wasn't doing it right. ...

Thanks but no luck finding that thread. I'm almost certain that they have severely decreased the chance of getting SC for players with standard accounts. It wouldn't surprise me. I used to get SC perhaps once a month and now 0 in 6 months while playing almost every day

If premium time did increase the odds of finding a super-container would that really be bad?
