When they first came out, it was a wow now its a meh.    Is there ANYTHING is there that compares to what there use to be?  Upgrades, meh.  14 days of premium (best thing I've seen in a super crate in 2 years and it aint that special.

Considering they removed those mostly useless "Special Mods" from the Super Container prize pool, I'd say they buffed SCs.

I have 5 of the useless damage control ones and 2 of the DefAA ones. Never got any of the useful ones from SC.

The last 3 I got were actually pretty good.  7 Premium Days, 1k Doubloons and 25 Red Dragon flags. 

Considering how the crates have been nerfed, it's an improvement I'd say.  Still waiting for a ship though.

I started playing before containers and super containers. Wargaming is giving us free stuff, so much more so then when I started. Why all the complaints?

i think the problem with SCs is that it's not personalized enough. 

some players have to many signals/camos that they will find these to be completely useless - such as myself

other players new to the game and still leveling their ships may want these. 

 

i think the best way to fix SC is to give the players the options to choose what kind of drops are more preferred over others, then everyone is happy and get something useful. afterall if a player gets a rare drop, you should aim to delight the customer, instead of having him become upset with something they consider useless.

I remember the old un-nerfed ones, man those were great. Ditto old Santa gifts

14 days of premium 

I only got 7 days of premium in mine last night. :Smile_hiding:

Of course, having said all that, I also remember what we had in place prior to containers so I'm not going to complain about what we have now!

Of the less than half dozen SCs I've ever gotten only one had something really useful (usually it's like a cluster of speed flags, like my last one).  Even in that case it wasn't useful to me - right when I bought the HSF Graf Spee I got the regular one like a week later, my first SC in about a year at the time I got it.

I have gotten 1000 doubloons and 500 doubloons in my last 3 SC the third was some flags I don't even use.

The 'issue' is that the same people who make threads like this are the ones who rage about Santa crates.  In their eyes, if it's not a ship in the container, it's trash.  So they rage.

Please don't misrepresent this issue.  While I am sure there are a few people like that, most people complaining about Black Friday or Santa crates are complaining about the fact that this game, like many others, takes advantage of legal wording not keeping pace with technology to have unregulated gambling.  Supercontainers do not qualify as that,  I don't mind random rewards.  The fact I've had bad luck doesn't even mean I think the container system should go, once I stopped picking "try your luck" I grew to love containers way more than the old daily missions.

I typically get coal.  Before that I'd get signals usually.  Credit containers just don't give enough to justify it in my opinion.  50k credits will basically buy two premium consumables and you'll get more than that in consumables crates.  That said to each his own, but I wouldn't count on Missouri ever coming back.
