Pretty rare, about super container rate I would say. If you can wait for a port slot sale and but some then.

Good to know. Bought a bunch during the last sale but I’m down to my last slot right now.  Not looking sell any ships and I mean any.

Looking forward to it. I get to finish my Belle Époque collection and fingers crossed for a Missouri from the crates if that’s still possible.

Hen's teeth. I got quite a few a while back, but I was very lucky.

When they were 100 a pop a short time ago, I took good advice and spent all the doubloons I'd been scrounging. With French destroyers coming into the game, more Soviet battleships still to grind and several other tech-tree grinds as yet unfinished, I'm glad I did.

I've had a few in 18 months, probably 5 in total, they're pretty rare.

A friend of mine who didn't want to spend cash on the game built up his port slots by buying the Campbeltown for coal, selling it for credits then rebuying it for coal multiple times. On the plus side it's slots for just playing the game, on the downside it's coal you no longer have towards other things.

I recall that when I first started playing a couple of years ago I was getting these from time to time along with "slots" or "positions" (whatever these are called) for additional Captains. I also remember that there was some complaining about how many new Captain slots were being given out at that time as some people, even back then, had hundreds of available positions....

With the way they practically hand out 10 pt captains now, newer players could use a few captains slots.  Especially if the player doesn't have a big fleet to stow captains on.

I am also amazed at how 10-point (and higher level Captains, i. e., Alexander Ovechkin) are now given compared to a couple of years ago when you seemingly started with all zero point Captains.

This is an interesting way to get more slots...

...but I'm more interested in the other thought in this thread...that the credits containers could drop port slots...

Is there a link somewhere to the possible drops of each container?

WG never shares odds of things in containers.

Not odds...the types of drops.

I.e., the more resources container drops coal, freexp, flags, sometimes credits.

Does the credits container drop more than just credits sometimes?

Oh, yes, they do drop other random stuff than what their "main" drop is.

Do we know the caregories? Or do I have to run the experiment myself?

Which are cheaper port slots or low tier ships that you can sell then have the slot left.

If you mean line ships, you have to purchase the port slots for them, they don't come with them.

If you mean premium ships, purchasing just the slot is much cheaper.  WG thought of that.

Used to be not so rare but certain old players complained about it 2 or so years ago until they have become very rare....
