Who are these guys that keep on getting multiple ships from super containers/event containers, why are they so lucky? 

Am I not praying to RNGsus enough, what kind of prayers do you do?

Show me your ways oh lucky ones!

While standing on your left leg only, rub your tummy with your right hand counter clockwise while rubbing the top of your head with your left hand, clockwise, all the time repeating the following : 

Our father,
who art in code
Random be thine rolls.
Thy drop rates scarce,
thy wrath be fierce,
for those who roll on all.
Give us this day our rares and uniques
and forgive those who die before a boss drop,
as we forgive the people who made that a thing.
And lead us not into pet gear,
but deliver us from sacrifice tokens.
for thine are the game mechanics,
and the rules,
and the broken keyboards,
forever and ever.
Amen.

This ancient prayer has been unashamedly purloined elsewhere off the internet.

The first year WG did this, I bought a pack of those Santa Crates and in back to back openings, I got Gremyaschy and then Imperator Nikolai I.  Everything else since then, even this year's, has gotten me sh*t.

I don't even try the boxes.  I have terrible rng when it comes to boxes anyway, so why waste money on possible getting monaghan or krasny kreme when all I want is Haida.  I usually only get flags and camos from the free boxes earned this time of year, and during thanksgiving.  I'd rather just buy what I really want

It should be pretty clear.  Sacrifice more virgins to the altar of RNG.

Got my first Super Container ship yesterday. A DD/CA main, I received....the Atlanta!

Consider myself very lucky for getting a ship and even luckier that it was a ship that I would have chosen to win in this way (I have already bought many premiums I've wanted, so this has made the list of possible ships I actually want very small, compared to the 40+ ships left that I'm not really interested in).

Maybe next year WG can categorize Santa Crates into Small, Big, Mega, but have them in ship type chance. I understand the crates may need to be more expensive; just a thought.

No to rub it in but I only received 20 Mega boxes. Of those I go 3 ships (no kryspie kream). If your a new player, this is the promotion for you. IF you're an old salty maybe wait till there is a path to a particular ship your after.

If you have have a lot of ships then you're not going to get much of ships.

If you have say less then 25 ships then odds are you going to get more ships out of 20 boxes. I go the

 

  • T-61
  • Roma
  • Monahough or whatever... Good for Scenarios.

I am not saying I did not like the ships but I really dont know how to play them in the first place... I am to aggressive, which means I will go down fighting but if I take 2 ship on the way then I did my part. I know its not the best way to play but its sure is fun.

Sometimes, once in a Coon's Age, but only if it falls under a Blue Moon, and the stars and planets all align properly, and then only if the Powers that Be deign it to be so, does a extremely low probability chance pay out.  The odds of getting a ship in a container choice are something like one in a thousand, which are still millions of times greater than winning a state-run lottery. I've gotten two ships, a De Grasse and an Arizona from containers in a little over two years of playing the game. Both are pretty good ships though -- they got me to Rank One in Sprint this season.

T-61
Marblehead
Krasny Krim
October Revolution

Z-39 
Blyskawica

I was hitting roughly 10 - 15% ship drops with the medium crates.

Be careful what you wish for it might come true. I have got 4 Krasny Krym from Santa crates. I have got 3 ships from regular daily crate SC's and 2 of them have been Krasny Krym. 

The horror...:Smile_ohmy:

I wish I knew because I have gotten exactly 2 premium ships from crates - the first year with the Santa boxes when Warspite was in a 1 Dollar crate (hoped beyond hope and got it) buying a couple containers. The other was Asashio Black from a free Black Friday container with the I believe Irony of it being I had been on a thing around that time of several threads and the situation with the state of IJN torp boats and the "Buff" that didn't exactly do much. All it really did was undo a previous nerf, that was done because IJN had far better torps that hit more often back then, and we didn't really are cause they were torp boats and the guns were still inferior to a USN Gunboat in a fair fight anyway.

I am shameless.  I just went and bought another 5 medium crates.  The first crate was a supercontainer with the Hood in it.  I know it's "Mehbote" but I have wanted her since the very start.

I'm keeping my Krispy Kreme.  That way I will NEVER have to worry about getting her in a crate EVER again!  :Smile_teethhappy:

I kept the 1st one for that very reason. All the rest are duplicates. It is like a bad rash that won't go away...:Smile_sceptic:

I love my Hood. Wouldn't call it a meh boat at all.

Ironically, I've had better luck with the big crates than I have the megas.  I bought 20 big crates yesterday and I got Marblehead, Ashitaka and Nueve de Julio.  I've probably opened 3x as many mega crates and gotten the same amount of ships and one of those was a Krispy Kreme.

2 clan mates yesterday during clan battles received random super containers. Both got ships. Rest of us were just confused on why we didn’t get supercontainers

RNGsus dictated from on high that I must have a Perth.  Got one in a 20 box round of crates.  Sold it.  The next round of boxes granted me, you guessed it, a Perth.
