Those spendy containers...

Has anyone bought a substantial amount of the new containers? I'm just wondering if they're overall "a really bad deal" like the last sets. Is there any significant chance of getting something nice? What all comes in them?

Let me summon @AdmiralThunder, as he completed the collection with the American boxes in the shop. IIRC, there were a lot of dragon flags and he got 3 or 4 premium ship missions, besides completing the collection.

Iirc he got from 60 containers about 1200 dragon flags, and all the missions for the premium ships except the Monaghan.

I bought five containers, each with 10 of one type "super" premium signal, some emblems, and a Sims earn mission. Worth it for me.

Why that sounds exciting! I eagerly await his reply. 

I was too busy to go find his thread about it, but warheart1992 found it and posted it.

Or, you can summon me, who got about 60% of the collection (ok), got a bunch of flags (pretty good), and one ship mission (cleveland, which I already had).    One 30 crate purchase.

Got suckered again.  Should have learned after the French BB crate purchase.   That's why it's gambling, folks.   Your mileage may vary.

I did well on the French crates. I bought one full set, which got me two BB missions and got the other two BB missions on the free crates. The flags and camo that came with that were worth it to me as I rarely play PvP, so containers is the way I get about half my flags & camo.

 

If I had the spare change, I might get a set to try and get the Monaghan mission, if I got lucky. I have the other premiums already from bundles, so I would be hoping for the one mission.

Bought two sets. Was gunning for Monaghan. Got Sims and Cleveland instead (which I have) plus flags (not enough yellow but plenty of the others). Can't complain.

As a counter-point, I bought a 30-pack, and got all 5 ship missions and about 75% of the collection (bought another 10 to finish off the collection.)

Thanks for the replies folks! 

So if I understand right, each one comes with 10 premium flags, the rest is a gamble. Sound about right?

I feel like I may have a good chance at something nice. I own Cleveland and Sims, but have none of the others. Hmmmmm......

You get 20 special flags, plus 2 pieces for the Cruiser collection (these could be duplicates,) plus a chance for a special mission for a USN ship.

 

Edit: finally ninja'd @Kizarvexis for once

If you happen to get the Cleveland or Sims missions, you will get the equivalent doubloon value in silver.

I bought more than that and got both the Kidd and Atlanta., as well as 33/48 of the collection (but I have 31 duplicates as well)

Could I afford it? Yes. My gambling rule is if you can't afford to lose it, then don't pay it.

Was it value for money? Not really, especially compared to what others have been claiming.

I'm sure some will see me as lucky compared to their own purchases.

I decided to buy a 10 pack. I got Atlanta, the other ship I have which I'd forgotten about ;)   

Oh well, it was an interesting experiment. Silver is something I definitely don't need, but the flags are nice.

Atlanta is fun, but blows up when a red ship looks at her. :Smile_teethhappy:

20. It says that on the store page. You're guaranteed 20 per box. Thunder got 1200 flags that's $200.

I did two buys, 1 10 Cont and 1 30 Cont, this gave me EXACTLY the amount of drops/dups to complete the campaign, which also happened to give me all of the missions. :Smile_great:

Bought 30 containers, did not get one ship mission and I have a total of 37 of 48 items.  That said, I do not know how many I had prior to purchasing the crates.
