I just opened a supercontainer which contained 2 camo's. Like in 1 ... 2.

I'd just like to know which employee at WoW really, honestly thinks this is super in any way, shape, or form.

I have been disappointed by prizes and such in games before, but this is just such an incredibly lame attempt,

to give someone something so obviously pathetic and worthless as 2 camos,

and have the unmitigated gall to then call it "SUPER",

that it just beggars the imagination as to whether this is just unbelievably ignorant or utterly disdainful of the player base as a whole.

I know that after I got this "super" prize I felt very much considered and catered to ... NOT!

2 camos; yeah man, that's super!

Sure it was a supercontainer? I usually get 25-50 camos. Sounds more like a try your luck container.

As noted by others, likely not a super, just a TYL.

From the wiki:

Common possibilities in standard containers:

  • 50 000 credits (75 000 for Try Your Luck).
  • 500 Free XP (750 for Try Your Luck).
  • 2x premium consumable (3x for More Consumables, does not appear in Try Your Luck).
  • 3x non-special signal (4x for More Signals and Camouflages, Try Your Luck).
  • 5x Type 1 or Type 2 camouflage (does not appear in Try Your Luck).
  • 2x Type 5 camouflage.
  • 2x other camouflage (Try Your Luck only).

More rarely:

  • 1x port slot.
  • 4x captain reserve slot.

Bold highlight is what you got.

Which camos?  Maybe permanent?

Permanent camo is not a supercontainer reward.

I have had really sh*tty SC drops but this ... I mean WOW!

SCs have already been violated in the behind by the long spiky shaft of the nerf bat but whoever coded THIS algorithm needs to be punched in the face HARD.

Sorry OP, no one on the forum knows you personally I would guess, yet because you are not posting a screen shot have been labeled a liar, telling stories, making things up, misleading the masses and full of it. (you are not planning on running for public office, are you?) Got my vote, I'm convinced. :Smile_teethhappy: 

I would prefer to err on the side of its possible, we all know that SC's are at most times a super let down.

If it's from "Winter Mystery" mission, it's not a SC but a regular container. 2 regular container.

 

In that case you misread the reward.

Yes, it was a supercontainer, one that was posted in the Forum. One of my clan mates got a Dunkirk; I didn't.

The confusion is the redeem code crate is a "dice roll".  However, since a normal "dice roll" occurs BEFORE the crate appears, with the result determining the crate given (i.e., super container or not), a redeem code crate (that is a dice roll) cannot appear as super crate (because it's not necessarily super yet) nor can it appear as a normal crate (because it could, indeed, be super). So it shows as a different looking crate with dice symbols on the side.  This crate is somewhat square looking (like a super crate) but is smaller.  When you open it, the dice are rolled and you either get a super crate result (unlikely) or the typical dice roll crate...a few flags (likely).  It's easy to confuse the square intermediate crate as a super crate...it's not.  Unless...it becomes one.

Nope. Still fake news.

As others have stated, THIS is what a SC looks like when opened:

(Yes, it's a Santa crate, but they look the same)

It looks like the crate also contained Oil.  Or is that drums of paint?

I would venture to say that ship paint comes in 55 gallon drums. I'd hate to even guess how much paint it would take to paint a battleship.

OK, I found out for one battleship, the USS Texas. It took...

9,200 gallons of paint
