Others will now attempt to repeat your success, but all they will get is salt (or, for Peanuts, fans, a rock).

You must be rich, spent $90 for a sub and commander that are removed from your account in about 20 days. I think 0.7.11 drops on 21 November .  Wanna adopt to captain I need some new toys also.

The only thing I really want is the Mogami camo.  I wish they'd just let you buy them individually.  I'm not going to buy $100 in containers for the chance of getting it :(

That and all the crates. But even if the crates were not included, there would be people who would buy this without reading the fine print because EARLY ACCESS, LOL.

Yeah... I hear you. Not cool that you cannot buy the camos individually. They could have put a pretty high price on the Mogami camo and sold a ton of them.

That will come later, after they have ræped the wallets of hot-headed people cetaceans who don't understand probability theory and cost-benefit ratios.

I bought 11 (its my birthday!), and I managed to get skins for Nassau, St. Louis, Lexington, one other ship camo I forgot (I have access to the USN ones but not the fourth) and 25k free xp, with a good amount of regular camos. I would have liked the Tirpitz, Bismarck and NC as well but not buying any more crates.

Having $90 to spend does not make one rich :-)  I couldn't care less about the sub. I can always use camos, free XP, etc. 3 new 10 pt commanders is welcome too.

You missed the important part about adopting a captain.

Do you get to keep those specials captains, I think they go away just as the 19 point one.

Me too. it's a trick, don't buy more. If you buy another 5 pack, they'll probably give you one good item, MAYBE two. They want to you spend 50$ on it to get anything good.

 

What a waste of money, LOL. I can't believe the base pumpkin only gives 15 crappy camo's... Could throw in 5 special flags for that price.

I have all the Halloween camo from last year, I wonder if I could get duplicates from them for doubloons compensation though they are limited to only one per account.

The hard limit tells me you will be gated to receive any of the OTHER prizes.

I had all of last years Halloween camos so I was on the fence for a bit, but decided to take the plunge and see what I got. Ended up with all of this years new premium ship camos (North Carolina, Mogami, Kiev, Z-23) and their respective 10-skill commanders, 125.000 free xp, 5000 doubloons and 435 assorted camos. The base doubloon value given by Wargaming to these items are, summed up, 51070 doubloons (not counting the 10-skillpoint commanders as I am not sure what value to attach to those). The price of the 40-pack is roughly equal to 22200 doubloons. Now if I'd just sold the assorted camos, as so many of us has too much of it, I'd gotten 16312500 credits (10875 doubloons worth) and the given value would have shrunk to 40195 doubloons. If you don't count credits as any particular value and just takes them out of the equation the camos, free xp and the doubloons totaled is 29500 doubloons and as said the price of the pack is the same as 22200 doubloons. So even you spin it different ways you still get a good discount, and it's all up to each player to feel if its worth it for them.

I'm personally happy with the result and I had a good set of rolls too, as this is random you never know what you end up with eventually.

It takes 183,000 elite commander or free XP or combination of both to create a 10-pointer from nothing.

http://wiki.wargaming.net/en/Ship:Commander 

So you can set the 10-pointer's value at 183,000 free XP for argument's sake.  At a standard rate of 25 elite ship xp conversion per doubloon spent, that's 7320 doubloons. During special events (35 xp converted per doubloon spent), that's still about 5229 doubloons.
