Azur Lane...The Collection That Just won't Die!

It is just me... or is the Azur Lane collection the endless slog of death?  I get at least the 2 daily containers. Sometimes 3 on the weekends. I cannot remember the last time a non-duplicate dropped. I'm still at 28 of 36 and the drop rates in the containers are abysmal. When they do drop, it's always a duplicate. Every other collection has been a downright cake walk compared to this. Azuma better rub my back and make my coffee at this rate!

Mine was bad too... maybe not so much on drop rate, but I had like more duplicates than non-duplicates when I finished. For the Russian collection I had closer to half the number of dupes ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I don't think the rates would be different between the various collections though, probably just crappy RNG.

I haven't finished mine either. I had a feeling they dropped the rng from the start, but I have no proof of that.

It's bad RNG. Every so often some collection does the same thing to me. Sparse token drops and when there are it's dupes.

You guys are tracking you can cash in dupes for missing items, right?

This.

I almost never use my duplicates to finish a collection and just let them pile up. Gives a handy cash infusion when you finally complete the collection though.

Never trade in duplicates for missing items of a collection, until you have enough duplicates to trade for ALL remaining missing items.

If you need 6 (random number is random) more items, and you trade 5 duplicates for one item, you will possibly get that new item again in tomorrow's drop.  And now you only get 1 duplicate for it.  This will dramatically slow your progress through a collection.

I totally agree, I just manage to finish mine with 15 duplicates. No other collection has been this grindy, totally missed the whole Russian collection for this one.

My collection was halfway complete before I started getting all duplicates. But I got them in each crate and I play enough to get all three every day. So after a few weeks I ground enough to get the needed dups to finish out the event in one go. Same thing with my soviet collection. Now I just need to work on the american cruisers.

THis is my normal experience. 

The last soviet one, I got the Admiral's shoulderboard item (alone) 8 times. At one point, I had received 3 items and 9 duplicates in an (almost) empty collection. 

I just assumed that everyone's experience was as bad as mine - but perhaps not...

Pity that they don't take Elite XP for the ship. Then I could buy it twice over.

And how are people supposed to know that?

This is what I mean when I say that the UI is terribly unintuitive. The majority of people are not going to find out because they're not going to highlight what's not there.

Yea drop rates are atrocious. I've been at 29/36 for at least 2 weeks. Up to 45 dupes which is easily out of 120 crates. Yes im well aware I can complete it but I've been more curious as to how long this will go.

Agreed. I feel it took waaaay too long to complete the collection. I actually just finished yesterday in the end I had 55 dupes.... yes 55 bumbooklat dupes and was finally able to get it finished. Something definitely changed from previous collections. The drop rate was abysmal.

I am at 35/36 with 70 DUPLICATES.  S E V E N T Y.   That is freaking nuts.  I am holding out to see how many duplicates I can get before it actually gives me the non duplicate.
