So .. 50 $2.99 boxes
13.29
13.29
47.99
47.99

$123.17

Okhotnik  V=18?
Hood  V=45
Mutsu V=30?
Gallant V=18
Huanghe V=22

7000 GC  V=32.30

180 premium  V=45

sub total hard items $210.30

90 Wyvern Flags
60 Dragon
75 Red Dragon
30 Hydra
15 Ouroboros

270 flags at 45,000 silver each = $12,150,000 SIlver ( you can convert that to something else... it made my brain hurt so I stopped)

270 Frosty Green Tree Camo @ $52,500s = $14,175,000 Silver

I did not count the presents in this summation.  If my math is right, I'd say I got fair value.. not quite as good as last year, where I rough figured around a 3-1 ration of value to money spent.. but still a value.

Hi .. my name is Elo and I has been only 6 hours since I opened a crate... 

20 Mega Crates

30 Frosty
30 Frosty

2000 Loonies
2000 Loonies

15 Type 59
15 Type 59
30 Ouroboros
30 Red dragon

2000 Loonies
30 Red Dragon
30 Frosty
30 Frosty
30 Frosty
30 Ouroboros
30 Hydra

De Grasse
15 Type 59
30 Dragon

2000 Loonies
Duca Da'Costa


Mega cratage not quite as good a return methinks as the Biggun cratage... 8000 Loonies, DeGrasse and Duca Da'Costa and a ton of flag/camo $74.99.

I think a successful run of opening boxes grants one the direct value  of ship and coin of *more than what is paid* and the camo and flaggage is a bonus.

                             (so I think that deserves like 4 crates to be opened?.. yes I think so)

15 Red dragon
15 Ouroboros
15 Red dragon

90 Days Premium (whoohoo!)

( this has been a good run from lot this 20, and it seems that opening them a few at a time does make a difference.)

You're like the opposite of 1800 gamblers help line.  I did a couple fives of the bigs when it kicked off, had Ohot and Degrasse in one, flags, camos and 1000 dubs in the other.  Then I did a 20x big this morning and landed Arizona, Molotov, and Leningrad, along with a ton FFC (F'n Fir Camo).  I'm on the brink of going for another 20 bigs, don't know how long I can hold out.....

I haven't tried the mega, but the big feels like the best value to me, unless you want to ensconce yourself in Fir until Xmas '20.  I also don't think the speed in which you open them has any effect in what you get, but your method has been fun to watch.
