Got home last night, Started up the game and bought over $30.00 worth of French Containers. Of course I got some flags, a couple days of Premium and some tokens. Not one French DD Campaign. Was looking forward to playong the new class of ships etc. Thanks Wargaming. Joke is on me. I can't buy alot of things, sorry, i'm not one of the lucky ones.

Never buy these ship drop containers with the intention of getting the "big" prize.  Only buy them, if you will be happy with the guaranteed extras.  This holds true of every event.

^ This a million times over, getting the big prize is a bonus that should never be planned on.

Yep. If you were not happy about only getting draconic flags and the event one-use camos, then buying the French DD containers is asking for disappointment if you are unlucky.

Ironically just after posting that I went to buy my usual five crates but inflation has brought that up to seven. I was more than happy with what I got and then I got the Jaguar in number seven.

I got Jaguar out of a 14 crate buy, but was happy with the camo, draconic flags, 900 dubs and 4 days of WoWs time.

I got fortunate and got Jaguar in one of the two French DD containers I got from the PT rewards. I'm not 100% sure how to play it. I played it kind of like Emile Bertin and it was pretty OK.

You get one for completing the directive, for free.  But you will probably get your dubs back if you earn it for free in the game now.

Sorry it didn’t work out.  You mention you got some tokens, do you mean the Republic tokens?  I thought Fr containers didn’t drop those?  That would make the containers a tad more digestible were it me as I definitely won’t have enough for the 4 bundles, much less camos.

10k, 12k, 14k and 16k base XP for the T5-T8 early unlocks has been standard when there is a mission drop. That hasn't changed.

The only thing I could complain about when gifted a free ship with only one box bought.....The extreme peer pressure got me...

Welp, all done knocking snowflakes off 154 ships (the ones that had one at least).  Ended up with 910 tokens, so enough for the T7 and T8 premium camos.  Got lucky and got the T6 out of a standard container, so once it's grind is done it will pay for it's own camo.

Will just be missing the T5 camo unless it decides to drop for me as well.  Not a bad haul for free.

I bought the 42 create pack and got the first 3 DDs. Bought another 42 pack (yes I know I need to stop putting money into this game) and didn't get a mission for Le Fantasque.

What sham?  Sounds like he knew what he was getting by virtue of the fact he bought a second pack.

Just because WG creates transactions that you want no part of does not give you, nor anyone else, the right to dictate how businesses do their business nor how people can spend their money.

This^^^

Diamonds from the ground are ridiculously expensive IMO, but people still buy them. Same for super expensive wine, high end audio equipment (the stuff in the thousands of $ per component), etc. Why should you have control over how he spends his money?

 

Now personally, I thought the British CV early access was the absolute best way to do the early releases as you could get the lower ones through a grind that was not that hard and spend money if you wanted the higher ones. I wish WG would go back to that format, but I can understand why they might not.

lol That's how I felt this morning. I'd promise myself I'd buy some RW crates to get the last tokens I needed for Benham. I got the 7 crate bundle, $21.00. Of those 7 crates,  5 contained 1 million credits and 5 camos in addition to the 15 tokens. WooooW what a great value! Of all the items that one can get from a crate, credits is the most worthless to me. WG seriously, stop putting credits in your premium crates. I know it's a rip off, you know it's a rip off, I know that you know it's a rip off, you know that we know it's a rip off...
