Worked my stern off to get the airdrop containers (or whatever there name is these days) and you won't believe what I got!!! 

Spoiler

Each container had one set of two signal flags!!! Wow!!! 

Two Wyvern, Two Scylla and Two Hydra!!! Wow wow and wow!

I'm sure you can understand my overwhelming joy at receiving these after grinding, grinding and grinding. 

Thanks WoWS. 

Did you do better? Tell me about it! (tiafyc)

The Air Drop containers are very underwhelming. I am thankful for the oil farmed, don't even remember what was inside the crates.

Same.  I haven’t received anything other than a pair of flags in any I have received, to my recollection.   While I am always thankful for free things in a FTP game, color me underwhelmed....

See... I think they miss the obvious... if the in-game crates gave out a bit better stuff, I'd be more tempted to open the creaky wallet and spring for the premium store crates. 

If they really wanted my money, they'd have brought out the RN premium carrier with the other ones... alas, no known date (is there?) on it's release. I think it'll be the best premium carrier - but I digress.

They get really close in getting us hard nuts to crack but always seem to fall just a bit short.

Yes, the Fly-Strike-win containers have been rather lame. The 5 containers I bought were surprisingly very good.

Strawman argument if I ever saw one.

The real prize for these directives. is the permacamos they're offering for American heavy cruisers and French cruisers from T6 to T9. The Naval aviation containers are just a side order of whatever.

If this directive were only about those containers, I don't think I'd have given a rat's posterior.

Did you not notice the camos? Did you not even care because you don't want or need them for whatever reason? (Big hint: others do.)

Or are you screaming and whining and stamping your feet because the ordinary containers did not drop a premium carrier in your lap for all that effort?

I haven't had the best luck with them, but one of my clanmates somehow pulled an Enterprise from his first Fly-Strike-Win container.

My personal policy is not to complain about getting free stuff, so I’ll say it like this....I sorta wish these air drop containers had MORE free stuff? :Smile_sceptic:  They’re very underwhelming.

I’ve mostly gotten the ones that have 3 sci-fi camos.  Also a few of the 2 dragon flags.  The only sorta good one was 2000 coal and I only got that one once.   Free stuff is still free stuff though,  not gonna complain (much).

Wow what side of the bed did you crawl out of today? No matter, it seems either side would be wrong, today. 

No, don't care about space camos. Might care about regular style permacamos... especially if they were for a carrier, you know, as they are, overall, the most expensive type to play. 

The offer was also put forth by WoWS/WG about winning free ships. Okay, so I've seen maybe three people post they got one - but those seem to be from the purchased Air Containers, not the in-game ones. Maybe one was, but I don't think it was made clear.

So they probably should have named the series Radar Fire Win as I don't see many cruisers Flying. Right.

I have seen at least two reports of wins from the free containers; one a Graf Zeppelin, the other an Enterprise.

Okay... well out of the three I've seen posted, two from the free. Maybe I saw only two, who knows? Considering the limited number given to a player, three sets of two flags each is weak. It's not like they're handing them out like used hankies.

I got 1 flag and I was happy to have it. You kids these days. Complaining about free flags when kids in the third world may never even see one. You ingrates. :Smile_hiding:

Lol

Three containers!  Hoor .. huh?  9 camos?

 To be fair, though, along with the 9 camos came 2 permanent camos and 3000? Coal.  So it wasn't a total bust.

No, not Hallowe'en camos.  9 Space camos.  They're decent camos, so no real complaints.  But a bit underwhelming for the work required to get them.

Well thankfully I've finished the FSW campaign, afaik... oh sure there's some undone missions but the rewards aren't worth the effort, imo. So looking forward to those three crates again and ta-daa, look what I got!

What could top that, eh?! 

I know some of you will be jealous of my rewards but that's a.okay... when it rains, it does pour. :cap_like:
