Nice haul.

I got a Monaghan (bad), and T61 (great) from 45 crates total. The Santa crates this year have had awful ship drop rates. I'll probably just save my money next year.

Why is the Monaghan bad?

Australian ingenuity? Did you hear, Australia doesn't exist, and is all part of the globe conspiracy... (NO, I am not a Flat Earther).

Okhotnik, Duca Degli Abruzzi, Monaghan and T61 from premium (purchased 3 blocks of 5) Santa crates, plus 4,000 doubloons and a ton of cammos and flags, Mutsu, Murmansk and Anshan from free in-game crates, plus 50 doubloons and 28,000 coal. Crapshoot indeed!! I bought my LottoMax 50 million ticket for Saturday's drawing just in case....one never knows!!

Grats!

I've never gotten a ship before. Hope to some day.

I've only had a handful of games with Monaghan so this is very much a first impression. But I find that Monaghan is trying to be 2 things with it's hull choices, and fails at both. For me at least it's a ship desperately in need of a purpose in life.

A hull: It's a Farragut with 4/5 of the guns... If I wanted to play a Farragut, I'd just get a Farragut and the B hull for better dakka.

B hull: This is Monaghan trying to be a torpedo boat, but imho the problem is that she's not very good at it. The TRB only reduces reload to 30 seconds so Monaghan can't launch walls of skill. And the torps themselves are too damn slow. At tier 6 there are a number of ships which do the torpedo boat job far better: T61, Gallant, Shinonome, all of which I have. And those can actually defend themselves since they have double or triple the guns.

Yeah, that's some pretty great luck. I've still only won the Anshan thus far.

Lucky, I haven't gotten a single ship out of the 15 I bought and the free ones I've earned.

Don't feel bad. That's all I get too. Cammo and flags

Perth is a fun ship... soft, but if you play it right, very deadly.

I bought 20 mega crates on New Years Day and my second to last was a Prinz Eugen.  I always wanted it, but not badly enough to buy it via other means.  Now my Bismarck has a slip mate in my port:Smile_Default:

it is a fun ship, even though I am still learning cruiser play (despite having Worcester... I still have lots to learn). Until I get better at cruiser play, this ship won't reach its potential with me. But hey, another ship for the 4,000,000 Credit mission next week.

The Perth is great. Just get IFHE asap then CE. Find a nice place to park, smoke up and rain HE down on all dah tings. If any of those wankers try to get cheeky with you, torp them in face pow!

Also pick up the double catapult plane perk as well. If you pimp it out with Smoke Gen Mod, Hydro duration mod and spotter plane mod it's even better.

That's disappointing was hopping to pick it up cheap for some Torp memes... Guess not.

Bought 5 medium boxes today and got the DoY and Hood. Not bad for a little more than $12.

Soooooo.... I got drunk on New Years.

Ended up with Might Mo, Belfast, Kutuzof, that tier 9 Russian cruiser and well... everything in the banner add and a lot more.

 

Don't ask how much I spent :P

I got Roma tonight from the last santa box in Steel Monsters. The campaign was well worth it before the free T8 premium!
