The coal resource containers are great.  Nice way to farm coal and flags.  Love it.

Oh...

So that’s why I get so many of them; I apparently pay for it with all the overpens and straddles I score shooting at broadsided, easy, (grounded or slow,) targets...

So, you traded 8 flags for the value of 1-2 flags in coal? Your math seems suspect....:Smile_teethhappy:

They're nice but i find the flags one to be the best pick. I'll take 2 of them and then for my third of the day do the coal one.

Flags are great but I already have enough flags to last a few months at least.

Yes but with coal u can get flags that aren't available to buy also use your coupons and get them 1/2 off . You can pick the ones u want and not have to wait 10 containers to get the ones u need . I like it too.

Here is what you get in the Resource containers. I bolded the items I care about.

 

In Update 0.7.7, a new option—More Resources—will appear on the container selection screen. Choose it to get a guaranteed replenishment of your Coal stocks. The container includes three slots:

The first one always contains 400 Coal;


In the second one, you can get 400 Coal, 3 Equal Speed Charlie London (+50% XP) signals, or 500 Free XP;

The third slot can provide you with 400 Coal, 500 Free XP, or 3 signals (Hotel Yankee (ramming flag), November Foxtrot (-5% consumables), Papa Papa (+300% FXP), Zulu (+20% credits), Juliet Charlie (-100% detonations), or Zulu Hotel (+50% Cmdr XP) ).

 

So for me, it has almost everything I want. I'll even use the November Foxtrot flags eventually, but the ramming flag will just sit there pretty much. Since I play a lot of co-op and mostly save the flags for the little bit of randoms I play, maybe I should use the ramming flags in co-op. You do get to ram more as the bots drive right up to you.

#1 SC 7 days premium

#2 SC 15000 coal.

I've started tracking my containers, and although the population is very small yet, an interesting distribution:

Slot 2:  5/8 FXP, 2/8 Coal, 1/8 ESCL.

Slot 3:  2/8 FXP, 1/8 Coal, 2/8 Econ signal, 3/8 other signal

44% FXP, 19% Coal, 19% Econ signal, 19% other signal

Looks like Resources/Other is heavily weighted toward more FXP.  Anyone have more data to contribute?

 

Note: I think another Resources choice yielded a SC, but I didn't record the choice.

To put this in context, getting only one crate a night and selecting more resources will give you 12,000 coal a month guaranteed (roll January 31 and March 1 into February). That's one French crate, or two Dunkirk/Bismarck crates plus change, if you want to finish the collections for Jack Dunkirk and his French counterpart, or get the Bismarck premium camos. FOR NO COST. 

Alternatively it's 146,000 coal in a year if you want to be patient. And that's a minimum.

Good point. And a special upgrade with coupon is 12,750 coal, so you should get that extra 750 in coal a month of picking More Resources containers. You also get another special upgrade coupon every patch, so by picking the More Resources container each time, you can get a special upgrade every patch if you get 3 More Resources containers a day.

That is a big "if" for me, and it's one of the reasons I want this game to still be around forty years from now, when I am finally able to retire. Stick me in a nursing home with nothing but this game and I will be happy for the rest of my days. :Smile_teethhappy:

So for me it will be between 200 and 600 game days before I can get the Salem...  On other words, WG will either change her back to Steel or replace her when I am at 2,000 short on the coal...:Smile_sad:

Yes it actually would be nice if they threw steel into the resource containers.
