Maybe tone down the duplicates a little...

I've noticed how soon I start to get duplicates and how often I get them when working on collections. In my American cruiser collection, I'm about 7 items in and already one duplicate. The anniversary collection was almost entirely duplicates even though I only had about 1/3 of the items. I understand why they exist and I'm not asking for them to be removed, I'm just saying that their occurrence should be reduced a little, because it feels like collections have to be mostly done via duplicates and not through earning the items themselves. Just my two cents.

You can use the duplicates in the place of a collection item you need. I think the rate was 3 dups for an item or maybe it was 5.

Yes, I know, but I think collections are done more with duplicates and less with earning the items. I think duplicates shouldn't be so common so early on in the collection.

I finished every collection available thru duplicates mostly. Do not look a gift horse in the mouth :D

They are random and like others said, you can use the duplicates to complete the collection. I completed all the collections with at least 1 set of duplicates. Figure out how many duplicates you need for a collections and wait to turn them in when you get that many duplicates. That way you increase the chance of getting a new item while you wait for the right amount of duplicates. For collections you get via the daily crates, save up the duplicates and let the collection fiinish with only new items. Once the collection finishes, you won't get more items from it, so you can collect a lot of duplicates to be converted into credits when the collection finally finishes. My Yamamoto collection will net me at least 1.2M credits when it finally finishes.

How else are the supposed to make money?  They need to give you dupes so you have to buy loot boxes.

Is this the secret tactic no-one talks about? 

Hmm, one tinfoil Admirals hat coming up!

 

Edit...

I'm going two-ply, one tin, one aluminum, modern satellites and all...

I have 47 out of 48 American Cruiser collection items,  and 107 duplicates. I'm in no hurry for an ugly Cleveland camo, and every duplicate I get is more coin in the bank when the last item drops.

Over 1.6M credits so far.

As you complete a collection statistically you are going to get an ever increasing number of duplicates, you know that, right?

I just completed the American Cruiser collection today.  I started getting duplicates after my third collection item.  I needed two more collection items and it took 14 containers to get the duplicates.

Yeah, and with a 1 in 48 change of getting the right one each time, it might go a good bit higher!

It took a while, but I more than doubled the number of duplicates I had in the Yamamoto collection before it finally finished on its own. I ended up with 168 duplicates when I got the Katana to finish it off just now. I ended up with 2,520,000 credits from the duplicates. Now I need a new  collection, so I'm glad we are getting one in 8.1.

 

So please do not tone down the duplicates. :Smile_teethhappy:
