DO NOT BUY French Premium Container!

To those interested, this is the cost breakdown, in Free XP per tree ship (follows the USN BB tree so other trees will be +- a few dollars)

Basic gist of the table is this: assumes you go in a *straight* line, that is to say, only unlock whatever's necessary to reach the next ship. If the FCS doesn't get you closer to the next ship, it doesn't count, 25:1 Free XP:Doubloon conversion, and the Total XP to reach tier represents the 100% stock new ship, so to go from tier 1, Erie, to a Tier 9 Iowa, that is stock, without getting any extra upgrades on the way, it takes 560070 total XP. The last column is the cost assuming you purchase the 'any doubloons value,' which, as a *rough* approximation, works out to ~$0.0059 per 1 Doubloon (not that you can buy in that amount but you get the idea).

So for *this* topic, the French containers, if you're objective is to get the T8 Rich, stock, for 'free,' if you buy any more than ~$77.00, you have already spent more than it could ever cost to get there through Free XP conversion.

Btw, to anyone interested, this is the same table as shown before, but with a 35:1 conversion rate:

How do you get the Graf Zeppelin test mission?

BTW, I bought a friend a 5x for $13.50 (for his birthday) and got myself the same pack and we both got the Tier 5/Bretagne mission.

$450, wow.

You don't have to tell me to not buy anything from wargaming I already made a decision a year ago.

The removal of the Missouri.......... I will never spend a dime with wargaming.....

It makes me feel bad. I loved this game, but 250 boxes heart me.

Why didn't you wait to see the drop rate? I had a passing curiosity to getting a few boxes but I wanted to see if they were dropping closer to ~25% of the time or at least 15% but it seems to be much closer to <1%.

So they remove it like they do with almost every other premium ship st some point and you are surprised? They never said it was permanent. No matter how you want to twist their words in your head. "stay" doesn't mean permanent. If I am going to "stay" at your place. Does that mean I am moving in until the end of time? No...words are hard.

Why buy so many boxes? 

Last two Decembers I bought Santa crates based on how much I would play the game in the upcoming year. 2017 small amount . 2018 a lot more. Feel I made out like a bandit! These various campaign boxes are not the same. However OP will not need any flags or camo for alota games!  IMHO Santa Crates are excellent. Campaign crates meh!  I just bought five from my phone. That is good enough.

250 containers .... that's insane, and dropping that much into them without a general overview of what you might expect?  That's even more insane.  :cap_fainting:

Precisely the reason some countries have been 'regulating' them, equating them with gambling.

High cost, low percentage chance of getting what you want... that's called gambling lol If you want something, buy it directly (where you can clearly see what it will cost). But paying money for the "chance" of something, when the seller won't even tell you what that % chance is? That's just insane.

No one's doing it yet, but they will, if only to tax them at a higher rate.

Thank you for posting the results.  Always interested in seeing what people are getting out of these programs.  Most of the container programs seem meh (exception being the Santa Crates).
