Should I wait until next week to get supercontainer from campaign, if I want a shot at getting steel?

I'm like 1 game away from unlocking the final mission in stage 2 of Yamamato's campaign, which awards 2 supercontainers. I'd like to hold off opening them until 7.6 so that I have a chance at some steel.  

Should I wait until 7.6 drops to finish the mission that awards them, or would I still have a chance at steel if I collect them in 7.5 and open them in 7.6?

Good things come to those who wait. That's how the saying goes anyway.

AFAIK contents of a container are generated the moment you earn it, so don't earn the container until the update drops. Holding it and opening it later won't make a difference. Either way you'll most likely get 100 flags.

just want to point out it doesn't matter when you open them but when you receive them, for stuff like supercomputers or collection items.

It will prob be as rare as a ship... So I wouldn't worry about it. Out of 9 super containers these past 2 weeks. Just 14 days prem, 50k free xp, 1 speed boost mod, 5 stacks camo and 1 stack of junk flags. They have way to much filler in them and yet are so rare. So, the chance of even getting what you want is TINY.

9 super containers in 2 weeks... I don't think I've gotten 9 SC's in 2 YEARS... :cap_wander:

Nope, best to open them now for the oil total which gets converted into coal when the patch drops.

Ok, I'll wait then.  Was hoping to get a head start on the next stage over the weekend.  Oh well. Thanks for the replies.

yeah why not. 

Love the name by the way. On an off topic note you may want to check out the book 15 Stars by Stanley Weintraub.

If you haven't claimed the crates by finishing the mission and you want a chance at getting steel, then wait. I didn't realize you could get steel from SC, thought it was only coal. If you already have the containers then there is no chance you will get coal/steel from them. Contents are decided when you get the container, not when you open them. I think that if there is a ship when you open it, it checks and sees what you have in port at the time of opening so you won't get a duplicate ship. Least that is the way I understand how it works. I could be wrong. 

RipN, oil is farmed the second you get the container, not when you open it.

I decided to wait.

Giving up a little oil is worth the chance for steel which looks like it will be the most restricted resource in the mix.

It also made it easier for me to use for lower tier ships.
