Why when I get a super-container do I get 100 detonation flags. I thought they were suppose to give you more rare items not a set of common flags

100 det flags is a great drop. And the rate that rare stuff drops increases with a supercrate, but is not always gonna happen. I have gotten mostly flags like the 1 you got, prem time, great mods and once in a blue moon,a ship. Randomness is the key word. Plus it something free that you are getting. Be happy for that.

I think that would be super to get a hundred detonation Flags

Only way I get those is by earning them which isn't that fun but with the new update maybe not So Much Anymore

Yea det flags are meh. They are easy to get, run out or unmount them and play the rng lottery.

Det Flags are great... it means high assurance that when you're running important camos and dragon flags you only need to worry about personal play. 

I wouldn't mind higher percentage of super containers drops if the Det Flag drops were higher. The changes to Detonations makes acquiring them even harder now.

Considering that there is probably going to be 25% less detonations. You just got something that is 25% more rare than it was 2 days ago.

100 anti-det flags are WORLDS better than some of the throw-away mods you can get out of the things.

Last year i took my Bismark out on a beautiful day and i got detonated by a Yamato sniping me from max range. I got my first super container after that game and got 100 detonation flags.

 

Needless to say i was pissed...

I think the complaint is that for how rare it is to get a super container and the fact that the container is supposed to be well, SUPER, the rewards seems a bit lackluster.   

I mean free stuff is great but I have to admit that when I manage to actually score a Super Container, I am not much more excited about it than if it was a normal container.

Same.  I have gotten around ten super containers since they became a thing and I have gotten nothing but flags.  Don't get me wrong,  some of them have been good flags but when you see people talking about all the silver or doubloons or ships or even modules they've gotten its a little frustrating.

Hadn't seen a SC in 2018 then bam..2 in a row while choosing extra flags option. Got 100 increased flooding flags which I sold for good coin and 7 days premium, so I'm not complaining.

I stopped doing the random roll for crates.  The random roll thingy usually ends up being a 4-flag reward or handful of standard camos.  So over the long haul your screwing yourself out of a lot of signal flags and premium camos for a slightly higher probability of a super crate.  And when you finally get one -- its got something like 100-demo flags -- or ram damage reduction flags.  So free stuff YeeHaw -- but more free stuff when you dont click the random crate option.

This is another one of those WG doesn't understand player's perception problem.

 

If the 100 flags containers simply have an extra pile of credits. It'd make the super container feels a lot more super. Or, instead of giving 1 flag x 100, WG change it to 10 flags x 10. It'll make the container's contents look way more attractive.
