It seems to me that WG programmed this game to go through your inventory, find what crappy flag or camouflage you have the most of (and don't use) and put that into your super container.  The last four of my five super containers have been pure crap.  I just got 50 "restless fire" camo, one of the most gaudy and ugly camo in the game.  That bumped me up to over 500 of that crappy camo.  Before that was 250 "zulu" flags (gives you +20% credits per battle) and I know have over 1100 of those.  Before that it was 250 "zulu hotel" (+50% commander XP),  I now have over 1200 of those.  It seems WG just gives me what I need the least of....conspiracy?  Have I been singled out by WG?  Do I need to wear a tin foil hat?  On the bright side one of those super containers weren't so bad.....250 doubloons....meh.  Why can't I get the flags (battle flags) that I actually use and can't buy? 

It seems super containers are rare, but it is even rarer to get something good out of the super containers.

 

And yes, I do sell off excess stuff I don't use.  Time to do it again.

Yeah, those are ugly too.  That camo reminds me of the linen material used for pillows and mattresses.

I guess I just use flags more often than most people, because I can never get anything CLOSE to the numbers you all seem to have stockpiled for the ones I actually see use out of. Then there are detonation flags...

Just a friendly question - if you’ve got literally hundreds of a camo you know for certain you’ll never use, why don’t you sell them out of your inventory and get the silver?

You DO know that the arsenal can autoconvert that to coal if you don't want it as steel, and that way you can use it buy ships/mods/flags/containers, right?

  • 12/23/17 - TYL super container = 50 Gamescom camo (:Smile_Default:). I had 32 regular containers.  (This is my favorite of the non-historical camo...one of the few I do like)

I don't see one thing listed there that is bad. They all help quite a bit even if some are ugly (irrelevant to how good they are).  They were also all free. People complain way too much in this game about free stuff they get.

Free is free and as you said you can sell the excess stuff you don't use, a plus no matter what.  Of course I'd love to just see a few more Super containers.  I usually get at least 2 containers a day / night  but I think I've gotten 1 or 2 super containers this "year". 

Is there a way to go back and see how many SC's you get?

Maybe we should see if we can get everyone to put their prison outfits on for an hour or two and take lots of pictures of claiming to be in the WG Gulag...  :cap_haloween:

Judging by the number of flags/camo you have it sounds like you spend a lot of money on this game. Instead of complaining about not winning the flag/camo lottery just buy the ones you want and be done with it.

I have never seen the combat flags for sale, otherwise I would buy them.

Anything good from a supercontainer is always considered a pleasant surprise, and nothing more. 

The expectation is disappointment. I can probably count on one hand the number of supercontainers that actually proved useful so far this year.

I used to be similarly annoyed but then I remembered there was a time when WoWs didn't have containers... so I've stopped opening them.

I don't use signals or consumables, I don't need credits or camo. No need, no interest, no thanks... I wish I could gift 'em to somebody. Anybody.

When you are in port, I believe it is under your account (where you click to choose exit), there is a category called inventory.  Click that and it shows all the stuff you have (ship upgrades, consumables, flags, camos).

Who needs credits when you own the USS Trumpwagon?
