Ok, maybe I don't understand supercontainers like I thought, but I got one after selecting 'resources' and got..... camo.

 

Maybe I am missing something, but I thought that you were supposed to get... you know, resources in a resource supercontainer?

SC's are their own animal, with their own roll as far as contents.

Basically it's roll for a chance to get a SC, then roll for the contents, THEN, if it rolls to give you a ship, there is a port check to see what you have, then it rolls from the list of ships you don't have.

Ok, makes sense.  Sort of.  though what happens if you roll a ship, and there are no ships to pick?  (this is an actual problem with me, I have pretty much everything you can actually get from a 'roll'.)  It just do like Santa boxes and give you gold?

Then you get a Nikoli, or a Gremmy...

Honestly, I'm not sure what would happen if someone actually had everything on the SC pick list... I think basically everything other than the Alpha and Beta reward ships are on the SC list, though, so the odds of someone actually having EVERYTHING on the list is quite small, especially with the constant additions and the list of ships unavailable in any fashion other than SCs.

In that case you get the gold value of the ship rolled for the drop.

AFAIK if you have literally every ship that an SC can drop, it'll give you the dub value for the ship it originally picked. However, I'm only 95% sure on that.

Unless it's a santa crate. Then, you get about 14 Okhotniks in a row and it gives you their "on sale' gold value....

A Steam account with which I am familiar has not quite 200 games Co-op.  He plays to one daily container, then quits.  So far he has received 1 Port Slot in a Daily, and two Supercontainers.

Fortunately for the sake of justice, the last SC contained a Speed Boost special that he can't use since he has no DD above Tier 3.  <Muttley wheeze>

I got doubloons when I got a SC containing Arizona, as at that point in the game I owned every premium(about a year or so ago).

I think they changed it since then.  Now they look for ships you don't already have.

Got a SC last night after choosing the resources slot. 50 Valentine camo. At least they are red and not pink!

...but if you have all the premium ships and you win a ship (in a SC), which of course you already have, you get the doubloon value.
