Yes. You can essentially pick a consumable upgrade that you want, or just save it.

It was good not super. Super is when you go to a drive through, pay $20.00 for a $10.50 burger combo and realize that they gave you back $40.00 change as you are heading home.

The best supercontainers are the ones you didn't click "Try Your Luck" for. OP, you got 15,000 coal instead of a resource container maximum of 1,200 that you were expecting/trying for. That's pretty super to me.

The last two supers I received was a 1000 doubloons and 50,000 free exp.

15,000 coal seems to be in that ball park.

Some people feel 15K coal is "super". I'm not one of them, though. It's just an "alright" container.

 

I realize most people have coupons, but without them, what can that 15K get you? A ship? Nope. Upgrades? Nope.

Flags? You can take 20 - 40 of some useful flags, but I'd say that 20 - 40 flags is just "alright" & nowhere near the number that would drop in a SC.

Camos? You're not getting any with an XP bonus. You want a few with commander or free xp bonuses, you're in luck, but again, nowhere near the amount that would drop in a SC.

Containers? Okay, this one is decent. You can get 15 of any containers you might need. If you need them, that is.

If patches are your thing, well, you're in luck here. You can get all three!

 

I have no doubt someone will chime in with "It's free stuff", but those are the types of people who'd pi$$ all over themselves like an excited dog if you gave them a free turd, then tell everyone how wonderful the free turd is and all the wonderful things one can do with a free turd.

I always get signals and although I think that 15K coal sounds like a good (?) amount, I would rather have something other than 10 or less days worth of coal from a SC. The coal will come and I will get the Salem when it does. it's the only thing I covet that you can get with coal.

It should be 17,000 because that's how much a modification module costs and they removed them from SC drops.

Ok, let’s say you are saving for Musashi.  You can only count on 1200 coal per day if you (have the time to) earn all three containers.  15k coal represents two weeks of play at 3 containers/day - getting you two weeks closer to your goal.

Isn’t it about 13k with the coupon?

Well if you were to convert that 15k to the normal resource containers, it's worth about at minimum 10 days worth of the 3 daily resource containers or approximately 30 containers.

 

However the chances of getting a super container every 30 containers is unrealistic.

 

So 15k coal is a nice addition, but if you're already using the resource containers, 15k coal is not an impressive prize

Well no coal for me, but I got 7 days premium yesterday. Honestly, I do appreciate the premium time, but it was kinda of a downer. For perspective my two other SC's I've received so far were 50 speed flags and 1500 steel. Looks like the dispersion on SC's is even greater than the 17th century ballistics of some BB's. Maybe the next one will be super.

All it takes is a bit of good fortune happiness to bring out the fuddy duddy party pooper nay sayers to throw a wet blanket over the party. Who put the fly in your Oatmeal?

From Myself and those who a happy about getting 15k Coal to all yee sticks in the mud! BITE ME!!!!!!!

I still think 15k coal is still to low as a reward for being super. I think it better if it was in the 20-30k range

This.^^^

The special  upgrade mods are 12,750 with a coupon. That coupon refreshes every patch. So you if use the coupon before Sep 19th, it will be refreshed on Sep 19th when patch 7.9 drops.

Are you some sort of snowflake that can't handle a differing opinion? You opened it up to discussion when you asked "Is it super?"

Perhaps your future posts should include a disclaimer stating that replies which contradict your opinion frighten and/or anger you. That way, you're sure to have only like-minded people reply to your posts, and a happy little circljerk can ensue without interruption.

He answered his own question. End of story, is it?

Perhaps he should have tagged every mod & WG employee on the forum to lock his thread, since no more replies were warranted.
