 So yeah, gamble and you might get a .00001% chance at playing these ships early. I dont know what I was expecting from a Russian company really...

Exactly.  I'll just roll the dice and see if I can earn them for free.

I plan on grinding up the line anyway to get a good feel for each ship (and how to play against them).

There are guys that blow their brains out too, I wouldn't recommend just jumping along too.

Seriously, for the price of 80 of those... there is basically nothing you couldn't better spend your money on. I mean the Santa Crates I get, you can get a T8 and tons of other stuff out of them, but these, in the best case, grant you a free T8 that you can get... FOR FREE ANYWAY. And to do so *immediately* and not wait to hear what others say is the drop rate for the missions... well that's just plain gullibility.

Thats the thing with lootboxes in general. You can get the superwowroflmao drops, but the droprate could be atrocious. Afaik only Path of Exile made public its dropchances.

Who cares?

I don't know why people get mad at WG for offering an early access option that is paid. 

If you want to guarantee the ships buy doubloons and convert to free xp so you can just skip the line.

I'm not mad at WGing, I'm mad at the people being stupid consumers... if I had a nickle for every time I said, "Stupid consumers" I could retire 10 years ago.

But is it really stupid?  I think its more of an addiction bordering with gambling; Publishers know that  aside from "whales and dolphins" that dump alot of money into games, there are also people who just need a little nudge to give money for basically playing slots in order to win goodies. Add to that the coverage of various "influencers", be they streamers, be they Youtubers and you got a hypetrain that keeps on forking over money. A quick look at CS:GO, and its lootbox and skin economy will be more than enlightening.

To quote Forrest Gump, "Stupid is as stupid does." Yes, I feel bad for those with gambling problems being taken advantage of, and it IS [edited] up that Companies are actively trying to abuse them HOWEVER, you still have to plug your credit card in, and you DO own part of the blame. The same way a Drunk driver having an accident that kills someone, it IS still an accident. There is no malice. BUT we still hold them responsible for their actions. It's not black and white: the Company's own some culpability, as do the gamblers themselves.

Whelp glad I read this.  I was going to pick up a few of the containers figuring that the drop rate for the mission would be pretty high, at least as high as as the premium ship drop rate with the Santa Crates which for me was 1 in 5 crates.   I figured I would pick up maybe 5-10 of them because I could use the flags and that should be enough to at least get one mission.  Finding out that you bought 80 and only got 1 mission and the lowest one to boot makes me realize that is probably isn't worth it.

Or course it's not worth it, but WG does seem to attract all day suckers. :Smile_teethhappy:

Salute him for being foolish enough to waste that kind of money on a game, and feel bad for his wife....:Smile_Default:
