Incredible luck? Or something else?

I just completed Stage 2 of the new "Hit Hard, Hit Fast" campaign and the reward was two Super Containers.  I normally have zero luck with those containers, getting stuff like Spotting Aircraft mods or my personal favorite, several large stacks of the "Die Hard" ramming flag. I open the first one, just hoping for something useful like camo or consumables, or some detonation flags.  The little sparks fly, it drops open, and there is a Perth with a 10 pt captain.  I have never gotten a ship from a Super Container, ever. Holiday boxes yes, but not the normal ones.  Was pretty happy with that, even called my kid in to rub it in a little lol.  So while the kid is watching, I click on the second crate, and another ship...the Huanghe.  Kid storms out of the room in disgust.  Now I am wondering, was this just blind dumb luck? Or have others gotten similar drops from their crates? I can see myself using the Perth, but never had any interest in the other.

I have never gotten a ship from a super container (excluding Santa crates).  I am now walking out in disgust, as well.

 

Kidding, nice pull...congrats.

Don't feel bad, my kid is basically saying the same thing.  I was more wondering, if these were "rigged" crates, and everyone completing it was getting them. But it seems from talking to players in game,  and the couple posts here, it was indeed blind dumb luck.  Now, I have likely burned up all my luck for the year, and will be doomed to get the aforementioned Spotting Aircraft mods or other equally less than desirable items.

The Huanghe is a great ship, I like it better than the Perth. They both have the same smoke.

Crying inside, grinding my teeth while saying “ congrats”. Have not managed to pull a ship from a SC, hope to some day, but enjoy crawl smoking for awhile

Congrats, it's definitely a rare achievement to get ship drops on back to back SCs. I've only gotten one ship from an SC that wasn't a special purchase box like the Santa crates.

Congratulations !  And here I thought my two ( same condition for receiving them ) were great .  I got 50K free xp and 14 days of premium time .

This...

Play Huanghe like Perth and that seems to work...

...except like Mouse said, it’s hard to get much damage...

Now you got Perth and 3/4 Perth. :Smile-_tongue:

Valas needs Akizuki and Harekaze then, to have a 3/4 Akizuki.

Perth is a great ship, can be a game changer, sell the Huanghe for credits, it has no purpose otherwise...

It is a rare occurrence for a ship to drop in an SC let alone back to back. The OP just hit the Wargaming lottery.

I was ecstatic over pulling 100 signals & 15k coal out of my two yesterday.  Very not bad! :Smile_great:

(I'm also in the camp of those who've never pulled a ship from a non-Santa container.)

In a random last night I ran into 3 perths in smoke.  (they were not in division)  I wonder if  the crates have been nice, wholesale, to players...
