Good grief, Jonny.  If you really want the GZ, just buy it instead of gambling on loot boxes.

In Canadian money, the 20-packs are $100 each and the 4-pack of ships with captains and other goodies is $250. Assuming that the other currencies scale proportionally, then for 25% more than what he spent, he could have had all four premium carriers guaranteed.
 

As things stand, the cost of three basic carrier packs comes very close to what he paid for the crates, so he's not exactly terribly out of pocket. Except I'm not sure the crate drops give the XP boost missions.

I guess my point is that there are no guarantees with the loot boxes.  You can buy 20 or 40 or more of them, and if you have bad luck, you won't get a single carrier.  That's why I say that if you REALLY want the CVs, it just seems better to buy them rather than gambling that you might, because it replaces gambling with certainty.   Now, admittedly, one can buy a single batch of 20 or perhaps even 5 of the loot boxes and get all 4 of the CVs, and end up saving a good chunk of money.  But you could also buy who knows how many batches of 20 loot boxes and get only signal flags.

I can't open them till later, but I got a 5-pack, since I only need GZ.  If I get GZ, great.  If not, that was my risk to take, and I'll just buy GZ outright. But, I won't be complaining on here about it.

I agree, which is why I feel better about people who spam the crates because they want the other stuff, and are just happy to get whatever ship is on offer along the way.

Occasionally I'll buy a few purely to throw WG some money and help keep the lights on, but I know my chances are slim and I'm almost certainly just restocking flags.

In response to both...

I don't really care if people want to do this.  My concern/gripe is for the people who will buy lots of crates and then get all whiney when they get nothing.  If they REALLY want a ship, just buy it.  But if you just want to play the loot box lotto for the heck of it and not worry if you win or lose, enjoy!

Ya know...

 

 

I like to have some guarantees with dates. Looking like the profile pictures, saying how tall/average/short they are (without 4' heels of FU world), they are truly single, haven't told you a lie, etc. There's no guarantee that you'll hit a home run on 1st date, or 1st base. But you hope for that chance/opportunity.  Looking at my previous purchases and its net returns. I'm gonna refrain from going on more dates. I ignore the carrot on a methods now.

It is the risk of getting camo that kept my wallet closed, and reading posts like yours make me super happy about it. To have a 40% chance of getting 20 blah camo for the money is just not worth the risk, especially with my RNG luck and containers.

I don't play carriers and don't need flags or camos...so Ill pass on these.  With that said, dude spent $80.  Got $100 worth of ships and a lot of dragon flags.

I plan on getting GZ, and maybe some "spare change" in containers.

The only reason to buy the creates is because you want the flags anyway.  I personally would like it if the camo wasn't an option.  I tend to use the flags a lot more often.

If you wanted the GZ, why didn't you spend 20 dollars less and just get the GZ.  You aren't even guaranteed to get a ship out of those 20 crates let alone the one you want.  You knowingly gambled and lost and then complain after the fact.

I'm not following. You bought 20, didn't like the results (1 CV) so you post that.  Bought 20 more and end up with a total of 3 CVs.  Then bought 5 more.  Reading prior posts leads me to believer you're not a fan of CVs. 

I guess I can understand those that like the current CV playstyle and I understand those that don''t like playing against them.  Are you in both camps?  This is not meant as an attack, I'm just trying to understand your position on the current CV rework.

Having the higher end flags mean every match of current space battles is 20-50K elite captain xp.  I'm good with that.  That will go toward my own 19-point captain(s).

I have to agree that the sci-fi camo is rather weak compared to the dragon signal flags.  Surely they could have included 1 or 2 different top notch camos instead of the sci-fi camo.  Mind you, I think that the sci-fi camo can be quite useful at times, but it's still not a top notch camo.

Upside, great luck to get all 4 CVs.  Downside, all that mediocre sci-fi camo.  On balance though, you made out like a bandit!  :cap_like:

That's what I did.  I had the others already, I just wanted Graf Zeppelin and went with the basic bundle.
