You may as well just call them "more signals" at this point, it's becoming ridiculous.
I miss when I was tired of finding free XP, credits, premium time as opposed to ships.
I'd be overjoyed nowadays to get one of those, as opposed to 25 of whatever flag...

I'd actually forgotten that was possible. Never got one.

Got one with 15,000 coal a week or so ago.  Helped to finish off the grind to Salem nicely.

They do exist.

I received my first SC after a 2-3 month wait and was awarded 100X of a signal set that I rarely, if ever, use.

Nerfing them to include 25 flags is anything but "Super". As rare as these containers are, they should contain a minimum of 50.

crap, as rare as they are, they should come with 50 of every signal, 25 of every special flag, 50-150k fxp, 10-25k coal and steel, 5m credits and 1 of each of those special modules....all in 1...that would be super

I'm glad others share my frustration.
They're rare, and even within them, the good rewards are rare. We're talking minute percentages of minute percentages of a chance to get anything decent out of them.

Completely agree. I guess just happy they stopped putting useless spotter plane mods in them. They definitely need a buff in drop rate and goodies.

beware someone will come saying howdy derp it’s free be happy. I’d like to give them some used tp and see if they’re happy about it, it’s free right?

I mostly just get camos I don't need. So yea, not too excited either by them. But there is always the chance of something worth while.

Because of my missions for Halsey I received two super containers yesterday. One of them had 15k coal and the other had 100 flags for XP (I already have like 400 of those so kind of pointless).

But yeah I do agree that super containers contain more random flags then anything useful like more coal, steel, free exp or doubloons.
I am glad they removed the upgrades from the containers because I was receiving those all the time instead of something useful.

That explains it... There’s a bug giving Desmo2 ALL the supercontainers.

Seriously, how’d you get all those??? Ridiculous luck compared to me.

The problem is, the longer you play, the less valuable most things become.

If you play enough games, how many flags do you need?

Also, if you are paying for premium times and gold already, anything other than coal, steel, or a ship isn't worth much.

In my 400 games, I've picked up 2 SCs.  One for 50 Ocean Soul Camo's and 25 of the special credit flags.  To me those are worth something, but someone playing a tier X permacamo ship they are worthless.

SC yesterday, 50 valentines camo.   Usually I just pick Camo and signals so..  First SC in quite some time.  Never really expect outlandish things like ships etc. so it's free, I'm good.

I got more SC from choosing More Resource container than Luck one, I just wish I did not always get flags and camos. I never got what I wanted out of a SC.

I was using mostly TYL.  I switched to "resources" to build up some coal, but once I had opened 50-60 I switched back to TYL because I figured I was about due for a super container.  Now I am back to "resources".

I still think a super container with a drop down menu attachment would be far more useful than random ...but only Sith deal in absolutes...and we all know WG is not a cabal of Siths snickering when we dont get what we want.
