Short and simple.

Got a bunch of camos and signals. But, you aren't interested in that. I got the unlock missions for the T5, T6, & T8 Soviet BB's. 

I got 1875 total tokens, which netted me the Lazo for 1500 and then I rolled 300 into 10 standard containers which netted me a few signals, camos, and 3000 coal.

This is an excellent event crate, because even if you blow your RNG roll you will still walk away with a premium ship (or part thereof, depending on how many tokens you bought).

What is the event-crate cost?

25000 doubloons for 25. But, there are much smaller packages available. This is great for people who have doubloons stocked up.

WG, seems to have found a new cash cow...

I wonder how many people are actually willing to spend money, just to get tier ships early..:Smile_popcorn:

$100 is awfully steep for the chance at ships that can be got later with free XP. I'll have to think on this one.

Wow... a thousand doubloons per crate. And that's the best price per unit? That's a lot to pay to guarantee yourself a Tier 7 premium cruiser. 

Yes, yes, I know - there are camos and flags and unlock chances. But all that can be attained free in game, and I choose not to assign monetary value to that when it comes to appraising a container's worth. YMMV.

At 9000 doubloons, it becomes as expensive as buying a T7 cruiser in the shop. I want this thing for a Tier 5+ captain retrainer.

In fact,  if I have to spend more than it would cost to get a Molotov (which I can take into T6 ops), it just isn't worth it. That cutoff is very close to 4500 doubloons.

We shall see.

Money? No. Excess doubloons from doubled up unlocks (The Royal Navy event and Santa crates were very good to me)? You bet. I've got 62k gathering dust. And frankly I want the Dragon flags more than the ships and this has so far been the best way I've seen to convert useless doubloons into useful Flags.

Premium Containers in Armory...

  • 1X = 1250 Doubloons ($6.69 USD)
  • 4X = 4500 Doubloons ($21.43 USD shown as -10%)
  • 7X = 7500 Doubloons ($33.92 USD shown as -14%)
  • 25X = 25,000 Doubloons ($99.99 USD shown as -20%)

For that cost... No thanks.

 

Can you earn them for free ?

Ouch.

This is not cost-effective for me. I will grind for the tokens and spend any excess on standard containers.

You can earn the regular containers in-game, or rather the tokens to buy them, for free. But not the premiums, AFAIK.

My first priority is the 1500 tokens I need for the Lazo. After that I will worry about early unlocks (or not).

This is a good thing though.  Let people who want to spend the Money and Dubs do it.  Its not going to change anyones game play for someone to get a ship early from a Tech tree you can do free a bit later.

 

Helps the game stay funded without giving things everyone cant earn later.

Since I had close to 20k dubs around and hopefully next patch the duplicate Murmansk will hopefully cover up some of cost, decided to get 4 just to see and at least get some dragon signals. 

Got absolutely nothing as my luck befits me; not a jab at WG, I pushed the button to buy them. At least the signals are good and you get a headstart on Lazo so that's something. Still, just a reminder to people that for every winner there's a loser. :cat_paw:

It's still money...I've had 11k doubloons since xmas, and nothing to spend it on, and while extra flags are always nice, I'd probably end up with far too much camo again, have 1000's don't need more.

I have all the RU Cruisers, but I'm just not feeling the BB's, and if i do, I can always actually grind them.

WG has created this situation for long time players, far too many doubloons, with nothing to buy with them, and I'm still not seeing a good reason to spend. :Smile_glasses:

Many I bet.  They seem to sell a lot of the early unlock containers every time.

You buy crates for the cost of 30 Tokens each in the Armory. So you DO NOT have to spend real money on crates.

The premium crates are 1,250 to 25,000 doubloons ($6.69 to $99.99).

Um, why would you copy/paste patch notes into the forums when people can just read them in the Portal?

Because many people that come here asking questions, don't bother reading the patch notes.  It also lends credibility to answers.

This^^^

Also if WG changes something, I have a screenshot from today. More importantly, when people accuse WG of changing things, I have a screenshot from today. The latter happens more often than the former.

It's just easier to find it in the forums.  The way things shift around on the WoWs news page it become a hunting and fishing expedition to find what info is in what News post.  Often it's scattered across multiple articles.  In the forum you can just search on the event name and find everything in one or two threads or alternatively, search on @Kizarvexis.

there is another side to the coin... Pay to jump up the line saving grind time (A lot of it). if I have $100 lying around and only 6hrs a week to play. I would have already pulled that trigger.
