Not getting any good NEEDED signals/flags in my containers like additional speed, fast fire putting outer, fast fixing flooding, more range on secondaries, etc, blah blah.  Just getting more camo and more silver. Got enough of that!  Why no performance signals here lately?  Something I am not aware of?  That is common with me. What is the problem?  Tks.

Did you select the "more flags" containers? They should never give you silver (as far as I know) and you will get at least 10 signal flags most of the time. 

The selection is fairly random - they are not supposed to let you run all signals every game.

When I choose signals, I get 4-4-4 of something or other. I have many fire chance signals. I have 130 anti-det flags because I once got a super container with 100. I've gone so long w/o a super container that I don't even roll the dice anymore.

I only ever select flags and consumables, you can for sure get silver in em.

I guess WG just moves the odds around a bit. I think the easiest way to get a large number of flags is to play on the PTS.

I have only once seen where you can select more flags. Am I missing something? Where is that?  I am an idiot. Is it related to how many containers you have to open or something like that? Tks

Isn't the one category "signals and flags" ? I thought consumables was a seperate choice.

There are 4 choices for your containers:

-More Credits

-More Flags and Camo

-More Consumables

-Try your Luck

I usually pick try your luck, as I want some of the supercontainer modules for CW ( I do not have all of them yet). The more flags and camo will usually give you 10 flags, sometimes 15.

Super Containers are myth.  :fish_glass:

I get about 1-2 a month, consistent with a 1/2% drop rate.

@dmckay, In my experience, this is what I have seen. You can get a SC from picking any of the four, but TYL, gives a slightly higher SC chance and a regular reduced chance.

 

-More Credits - usually gives credits in one to two spots and signal flags or other stuff (camo, consumables, port slot, cmdr slots, etc) in the last spot

-More Flags and Camo - usually gives signal flags/camo and sometime other stuff (credits, consumables, etc) in some spots

-More Consumables  - usually gives consumables and sometime other stuff (credits, camo, signal flags, etc) in some spots

-Try your Luck - unless it give a SC, usually gives one of the normal items (credits, camo, signal flags, consumables, etc)

Do you actually get SCs from that?  I get zero SCs from the other 3 and zero from Try Your Luck too.

Do you have to have a premium account to pick your flags/;signals?  I don't have one. anymore. All I get is containers to open....no choice as to what I get. Just "containers".  Open!

I could pick containers before the premium account. Are you collecting your container when you earn it, or after that day is over by letting the system collect the container? If you pick the container, you get a choice. If you let the system pick your containers, I don't believe you get a choice.

As an experiment Since the first of the year I have chosen TYL only. I have received 4 SC so far it works out to one every 30 /35 containers. I will continue this exp till the end of the year and keep you posted.

Your results would be very interesting to see.

I've taken the other tack: I almost always choose more consumables. I've only received 3 SC's in about 1600 games, but I can directly appreciate the steady supply of premium damage control, repair party, smoke, radar, hydro and Spood Beest. Along with the odd free XP, silver and whatnot.

At 22.5k silver a pop they add up. Especially on consumable hungry ships. l The SC's are just a bonus to me; not something to get worked up over farming for.
