So here I was, all set to get myself some coal...

 

saw the little "this is new" WG button on the container choices, dutifully chose the "more resources" option, and...

 

WHAMO!  Super container...  Containing 1,000 doubloons!

 

Now, don't get me wrong, that was awesome, but... Is this some ploy to get people to choose coal?  I would have done it anyway!

 

GG Wargaming, and thanks for the doubloons WoWS NA!!!

on my first container I selected more signals, and got a super container with 50,000 gold xp.   I was very surprised

Looks like lots of people are getting a little present!

 

I like the idea of the new Resources container. The fact that they're potentially throwing Equal Speed Charlie London and Zulu Hotel flags at us in large numbers fills me with particular joy, as I'm currently grinding towards a 19 pointer.

I had the very same thing happen a few nights ago. I coulda sworn I hit the "more flags" button but then got the sound effect of a SC & got 1000 doubloons.

How strange. I've gotten 3 SC the past 2 days. (Smoke Mod, 15,000 coal, and 100 50% xp flags) Did they up the chance of SC????

Congrat's. That's a good SC.

I tried more resources on my 1st 2 containers today and got 400 coal, 500 FXP, and 3 flags in each.

I picked more resources for my first crate because I read this thread and I don't like the little red "look at me button" Wargaming likes to put on everything. I got a regular container with like 400 coal and 6 signals so guessing you guys just had some great luck. Gratz!

I hadn't played for a couple of months and came back to see what they finally did with the US Cruiser split.  Prior to taking a break, I almost never went with "Try your luck."  Those rare times I did go with it, it was always just to remind myself why I never try "Try your luck."  Since it had been a while since I had opened a container, I figured I would get that reminder out of the way so I could happily go back to my normal "More Consumables."  Boom, Super Container!

The next container I got, I figured the last one didn't help, so I still need that reminder, so I went "Try your luck" again, and Boom, Super Container!  I mean, I knew it was just a fluke and there was no way it would happen a third time, but at the same time, you can't not try it again.  As sure as the sun will rise tomorrow, it was, of course, just the normal three used napkins kind of container you get if you don't get a Super Container on "Try your luck."  And of course, the SC's I got were the extra large stack of signal flags, not bad, but not a chest load of doubloons or another ship.

So, I can now happily go back to my normal picks, but W(rn)G was sure trolling me.

Last night I got a Smoke Generator Mod1.  I hope the SC gravy train is still rolling today!

No more special upgrades in SC's now with this 7.7 update so you got one of the last ones.

Sadly though.  I would rather have gotten 15k coal so I could buy an upgrade that I might actually want.  Now I have to hope that the SC luck is still going strong.

I got 2 SC's in a row last week. Well, the outside said SC but I wouldn't call the contents super but both had far more flags than a standard container.

Got a SC last night - 50 Ocean Soul. 

Picked the "resource" container, today - got another one - 100 India Delta signals, never a bad choice on any ship with a heal.

Realised I had enough coal to purchase three of the special modules I covet.  I was a little sad they weren't going to drop in SCs, anymore - but this actually works out far better, as I can purchase exactly the modules I want.

Big wins all the way 'round!
