I finished it out with the one I wanted the most. Got the Kidd in the very last box I intended to buy. Spent just over $300.  3x 20 mega, 2x 5 mega, 3x 5 big.

 

I think the return this year was very close to last. People are just selectively remembering the high points and forgetting the oceans of Ocean Soul cammo from last year.

 

I went mostly with mega boxes because I value the special flags and the extra doubloons and they give you 2x on all that between the ship crates. 

 

I had a lot of the offerings going in as I spent considerably more last year, but here's what I got as far as ships:

 

De Grasse

Mustsu

Okhotnik

Gallant

Alabama

Gulio

Duca

Hood

Kamikaze

Kidd

Huanghe

Perth

 

Bought the Kii with doubloons

From all the posts about this it appears this year the chance of getting a ship was inversely proportional to how many Premiums you already had.  

The theory before was it would automatically give you a different ship on the list but I don't think it was 100%.

Wow - That's a lot of money, but if you got what you wanted then congrats. Looks like you got a lot of fun on the seas ahead! :Smile_honoring:

It sets me for the year for premium time, doubloons, cammo and enough special flags to get the FXP I need for the upcoming premium that's replacing Missouri as well as grind captains and a few lines faster. The ships are a bonus.

 I needed 6 and got them all- one was even from a gift!

Kidd

Cesare

Duca

HuangHe

Kii.

Gallant

  Only a handful of duplicates,  I was hoping for some USN duplicates, as I could use the 10 pt captains, but no dice.

  The mountain of other loot was awesome.

edit: Forgot about Gallant.  I thought there was another DD, but all I could come up with was Vampire.

Same here, no duplicates, got:

Pearth

Hood

Dunkerque

Gallant

Huanghe

Duca D'Acosta

Leningrad

Okhotnik

Issue for is I still do not have all of them, even though my port is full of Prem ships, still missing a couple and got another 20 days of being able to buy more boxes, if I so choose to fall off the wagon again.

Actually, it is not an issue, rather it scares the hell out of me, my wallet, my bank.........

I just needed Kidd, Gremy, Kamikaze and Nikolay I and got them all from one purchase of the medium, red, 20 pack. My gf got them all too, required more purchases as she didn't have many to start off with. Saved a fortune, for real, getting them from boxes than picking them up other times a year.

Well, I got a ton of ships this year. Way more than I expected to. My very 1st Santa box was a ship actually (Gallant) and my 4th box was as well (Alabama) so I started out hot. I even had a 5 ship score on a 20 pack of $3 boxes. Had a 3 ship out of 20 score too ($5 boxes). I spent way too much on Santa boxes this year though because of the luck I was having. Keeps making me go back. I got a 20 pack of $1 boxes today and got another ship. I even got a ship from a pack of 5 $1 boxes sent to me as a gift. LOL At least I got plenty of value for what I spent, tons of value actually, but oy did I spend. If you want to talk about whales; I am the MobyDick of this years' Santa boxes LOL. 

Not only did I score big on ships but I got a year + of Premium time between the 180 day one I pulled and all the 30 day ones (it's 7 or 8), I got over 50K Doubloons, and 200K+ Free XP (helped me get Missouri) as well as enough flags and camo to last forever I think. So the only complaint I have is with my own lack of will power.

As to did I get what I wanted for ships? Well after last year when all I got was Emden (3 of the stupid things) I just wanted to get a "good" ship. I can check that off for sure. I wanted Alabama the most when I saw the list of the ships available and as said ^^^ got it in the 4th crate. Was also very happy to get a Kutuzov. Belfast was the only other ship I hoped for but so far no joy and I am trying not to buy more. No duplicates technically but do feel I got one and wish they had thought of this so it wouldn't happen. I have the HSF Graf Spee but got a regular one in a box. That really is a duplicate but is not treated as such as one is HSF and one isn't. IMO this should be a duplicate.

Also, while I am not trying to sound ungrateful or anything I got a LOT of ships I have zero desire to play. Can't count the times a ship crate appeared and I got stoked hoping to see Belfast only to have another darn DD pop up. Good lord I must have got almost every DD they were doing and I do not play DD's. I also got Mutsu which I had no desire to get. Got Okt Rev too which is kind of meh. But did get quite a few I was happy to get.

At least with the ones I don't like I can sell them for millions of credits (once all the ship sales end so I get full value) and make use of the port slot and Capt's elsewhere (man my reserves are over flowing with 10pt Capt's now LOL). So even though I am not thrilled with so many DD's and such it was still a really good haul and value for me and I know how lucky I was to get so many so not really complaining. 

I only had 4 Premium ships in port before the Santa boxes started. I had Hood, Tirpitz, HSF Graf Spee, and Vampire. I now have the following that I got in a Santa box plus I was able to get Missouri by using the Free XP and Doubloons I got in the Santa boxes (in my port order not received)...

  • Mutsu (might sell)
  • Arizona
  • Sims (selling)
  • Atlanta
  • Kidd (selling)
  • Alabama
  • Missouri
  • Okhotnik (selling)
  • Okt Rev
  • Leningrad (selling)
  • Kutuzov
  • Admiral Graf Spee (selling)
  • Scharnhorst
  • Gallant (selling)
  • Blyskawica (might be the only DD I keep - historical and family reasons - but probably sell)
  • Anshan (selling)
  • De Grasse
  • Giulio Cesare
  • Duca d'Aosta
  • Perth

One bote (Gallant), a few boxes of dubs, the rest junk flags and camo.  Santa crates I got were hit hard by the Grinch bat.  Total waste of money for me.
