I might go for the bundles if they included Premium containers but OH HELL NO to the crappy low yield regular LNY containers! They call it betting but I don't see WG telling use the odds of getting each of those items! I did the last 3 bundles and got screwed having only 1 ship drop. On top of that the Irain is just a Kutuzov with no smoke or Defensive AA! 

PS  I see they changed the bundles from the NLY to Premium LNY, There BAD I guess.

 

Included Premium Containers, OK I will try my luck? 

15x Premium LNY containers: Premium Time-24 days, Free XP-80k, Camo Lunar Warrior-3 Asian Lantern-9  Type 59-6, Doubloons-750 Ship Camo-Huanghe, Lo Yang, Anshan.

9x Premium LNY containers: Premium Time-, Free XP-40k, Camo Lunar Warrior-48, Mosaic-3 Doubloons-750, Ship Camo Irain, Ship Drop Irain +10pt Commander

3x Premium LNY containers:  Free XP-20k, Camo Lunar Warrior-24, Doubloons 11,500 (Ship Double) Yeh! Flag, 10pt Capt Quan Rong

FINALLY had one of these pay-off! Net 13,664 Doubloons!  THX WG       WHEW HOO

All the containers in the Arsenal are the "Premium Lunar Containers".

I grabbed the premium containers.. the new permanent camo's look great. I didn't earn Irian before the third set but that's ok, I really wanted that ship. It'll be interesting trying to adapt to it.. I took it into co-op to try out the torps and reload booster and sure enough at one point I could see four sets of five deep water torps streaming out in front of my ship. She feels a bit sluggish even with the rudder upgrade but I do enjoy peculiar ships. It'll keep the games interesting.

The missions will provide a few more chances at the last of the perma camo's I didn't get (I don't think I got Loyang's as of yet).  And it looks like you can earn a few of the really nice bonus previous themed camo's as well.

Does the Lunar Warrior Camo appear differently based on the navy or is only compatable with 4 ships? You show Montana, Izumo, Kurfurst and Conqueror with different camos in the last section.

ok i blew 8888 doubloons on the first "boxed set"

summary - 2 perm camos for ships that most people dont have ( ie unusable ) (2box), 16 days premium time (2box), 60k free xps (3box), 36 lunar camos (3box), 18 type 59 camos (3box), 6 spring sky camos (2box).... my take about $50 in doubloons nets me about $35 in camos and time... so i am screwed out of $15 and have two camos for ships that i dont have.

And the wording "choice between xps premium time doubloons" is NOT a choice... you DO NOT PICK what you want... there is NO CHOICE so this is flatly a misrepresentation of what that option is...  I did NOT get a choice to pick for the 3 lots of 20k xps nor for the 2 lots of premium time..

SIGH... so if i get boxed set TWO then i will be out over 17,000 doubloons....   ( anyone else for feed back ????? )

Ok so i suffered from a massive head injury falling down the stairs and upon coming back to consciousness i hit BUY again

ok 2nd bundle - ok 9 more boxes and WOW a camo for a ship i dont have either...

2 lots 750 doubloons,  1 lot 20k xps,  36 lunar warrior camos, anshan camo not needed either, 1 lot asia lanter camo, 1 lot spring sky camo.

so this "deal is even crappier" spend another $50 in doubloons to get back 1500, two perm camos i CANNOT USE ( have ALL 4 camos now that i CANNOT USE ), and about $15 in camos

So now i am down about $100 and NOT ONE SHIP after 24 boxes.   anyone think the final 3 boxes of box set 3 will give any ships ????

 

so far this "set" is a total train wreck.

ok my head injury came back an i forgot how much i felt screwed over from the above two other boxes so i did it again,,, 

ok so now out over 25,000 doubloons and i have ONE ship.... i won theee.... errr no i didnt win it i bought it the IRIAN it COMES with box set 3...

so what did i get fro this last investment ( ie spend over $150 in doubloons now )

1 lot of 3 lantern camos

1 lot 20k xps

1 lot 6 type 59 camos

so this is now 15 + 9 + 3 boxes = 27 boxes ( NOT ONE SHIP of the 4 offered NOT A FREAKIN ONE )

SO the chances to win a ship appear in my case to be 0% as no incidences out of 27 tries is quite bad.

You REALLY need to get a single story house, my friend!  It's a crap shoot for sure.  Little White Mouse posted her purchases, using doubloons gifted to her by her subs, so she spent nothing out of pocket of her own $$.  She ended up spending a total of roughly 7200 doubloons as she received the Perm camos in the first purchase, got doubloons back in the second purchase because she received the Irian perm camo in the first purchase, and also got the cruiser itself in a crate in the second purchase, so when she bought the third bundle, was immediately reimbursed doubloons for the cruiser.  Link is here: http://shipcomrade.com/?p=2491

If one already has the three other ships in port, the odds increase ever so slightly of cutting down the doubloon cost, but everyone's pull is going to be different.  Very much on the fence on whether I buy even one of these - i think i would rather keep my stash of doubloons for turning premium ship exp into free exp and work towards getting the ALASKA whenever it comes out...at least I KNOW what I am getting.

Nice looking ships, but after the 24mill credit grind surprise the last mission put me through, pretty sure I and others are to sick of long grinds in short times. Earning these ships is not a viable option for an average player with job and family obligations, really not feeling the love in these events anymore just wishing they end. The main issue I had was the last directives seemed possible to complete and so invested time and effort and then boom 24mill credit grind requiring me to grind out two new nations for it, makes a man regret the time already invested when they kick you in the teeth like that.    :cap_old:

I purchased the lunar new year bundles in the proscribed order. I already had the 3 premium ships Loyang Anshan and Huanghe and received Irian with the 3rd bundle as expected. I did receive the 4 permanent lunar new year camouflages for these ships and they are in my inventory. However, they do not appear in the Exterior/Camouflages folder in game so I cannot select and use them. How can I correct this problem and use the new camouflages?

Check the filter gear icon on the bottom right corner. Make sure you don't have "Decorative" under "Special ships" hidden.
