Completed the FIrst Directive of the "Your Highness" event on the PTS ... one of the rewards was 500 Steel.  :cap_like:

The second reward was a Secret Santa container ... was, underwhelming?, shall I say  ... Oh, the camo is nice. Just thought, you know ...

Hope this doesn't portend a "poor" Christmas.

For those playing the PTS, your result?

PTS rewards are not the same as live server rewards.

The PTS hands out collection items like candy so that the mechanics of the collection can be tested.

It hands out meaningless rewards because the PTS progress is wiped at the end of every patch.

Thanks, I kind of knew that part ... but it still caught me a little by surprise.  Anyway, hope this year's Christmas crates break the recent trend.

Normally from the mission, it just a basic crate. It totally different from Premium crates that sold in the Premium shop

And as already mentioned above the contents PTS are different from the Live server

If anyone spends $400 on Santa crates to get a Stalingrad. Oooh boy. :cap_like:

That was the joke for using loot crates for Salem last year, iirc. I don't think anyone actually got that crazy?

It was Go Navy premium crates that were giving out coal indirectly (through tokens, which let people buy the in-game crates that delivered coal). People did get that crazy; IIRC the price without a coupon required $500 US to be spent.

Don't begrudge those that spend big bucks...they pay for your game.  Besides, he got much more than Salem, ie.  Premium time, camos (lots of them), signals, upgrades, resources, etc...

P.S.  I bought my Salem from coal like most of the rest of us.  But I bet Santa gave me half of my premium boats, and all my premium time (down to 200 days now).  He will also give me most of those boats I'm still missing...cuase I don't buy anything but doubloons (usually), util Santa.  

P.S.S.  I'm still sitting on so many frosty fir camos .....

Tier X ships are hidden behind coal/steel on PTS. So that makes sense.

Barely hidden.  Half of them are for 400 Coal - one Resources container.  The other half are for 400 Steel, the one mission.

I got Des Moines (Coal) in one Tier 1 battle.  Montana (Steel) will take a Tier 6.
