Never buy containers if you don't want to end up with the least valuable thing in them.

Mount them on every ship, in every battle, and keep your credit reserves humming. You can never have too many of those, especially when a new line is released and you need to buy the hulls and fill the upgrade slots.

You only get those in the 1$ containers, which have about a 3-4% chance at a ship going by the findings of Reddit. Compare this to the 12-13% of the large and huge containers. The small ones have been known to have an abysmal droprate for some time now, and even WG says that they have a lower drop rate, just not by how much.

Expecting results from them is silly.

OP, if anything that isn't a ship or doubloons is 'useless' or 'trash' to you, you should never buy crates.  Ever.

 

Pretty much this.  If you have been playing for a long time there is more potential "waste" then gain with containers. Time for you to just buy the ship you want when it is on sale.

At what point did I say anything about a SHIP or DOUBLOONS  Plebeians.

Think for a moment before typing.

I said useless flags that are rigged.   if it were were only flags that I could use I would be ok.

Like Speed flags that I am low on and use a lot because I am a DD main. even Victor lima so I can add to my fire change

If is was  special flags ,ex credit, or camos I still would be cool. But stupid Flags that I have lots of, NO

WG look he had 117k and had a but load if zulu . Let give him more.

Guy in corner hey he needs speed flags

WG throws that guys out the window.

My point there is nothing random about this, If I go 1 ok, 2 makes it odd, 4 now wait a min, 6 Way past rigged

 

 OH and I have 33 Pm Ships. Some I have not even played. Some just because they were on sale.

So, OP thinks that WG rigged his boxes to give him more of flags he already had.  

What is there to say to that...

This thread needs more conspiracy theories...

On the store page where you click "buy" to buy a container, it lists all the possible items you can get.  Why would you expect to get something that is not on the list of possible contents?

Classic Gambler's Fallacy.

The odds of specific content are not published.  That doesn't make it rigged; it means you don't understand what you are buying.

You also don't understand the word random.  IF the contents had the same odds (we don't know that they do), it would still be possible to get 6 of the same thing in a row.  The odds probably aren't even, though.

A piece of friendly advice: Don't ever go to Vegas.

really it straight statistics. How do you think that most get caught cheating if you roll 7 and 11 all the time rigged. If the house is cheating you roll snake eyes all the time. DUDE pls

I have track  most of the Super and Xmas container that I have received the odd would as some point even out, Usless a outside force is applied,  OF all the possible rolls you have to come up a winner.

That why vegas alway let you win a little or you would never play.

 SO Advice stop assuming someone has not though about the odds.

Second I never gamble that is for Suckers

You literally can't get speed flags from the 1$ Christmas contains, only the 5 kinds of base economic flags. They tell you exactly what things are in each kind of gift container in the news posts.

Second did you read I said " Super.  xmas container are rigged." I know that the / was missing but I even stated it again later Super and Xmas containers.

I have a few flags lying around :)

Hardly ever use them in fact except for campaigns and special tasks.

I will say that I have spent around 150M credits as part of rebuying ships on discount recently. So even though I was nearly 200M credits a month ago I find myself needing credits (a lot of them don't have upgrades right now).

I still have 230m. I’m not going to have time to get through all the ships I currently own... let alone go back and rebuy ships.

I'm mainly focusing higher tier ships now.

I doubt I will either have time or care to grind out all my ships (especially the lower tier ones).

So some nobody thinks a multimillion-dollar international video game company is rigging the crates against them.

I love the internet

I fully expect WG has a lot better things to do than troll me, specifically.

Given the crappy WG code in other places the effort required to effectively rig crates meaningfully.... I'm skeptical they are doing it :cap_wander:
