Welp, time to buy those T10s Ive been holding off on.

Thanks for the update Classic. 

Umm, too late now?:Smile_teethhappy:

it used to be you had to have had them in your fleet by a certain date....that may have changed though if they are using the snowflake mechanic.

Appears to have changed now, since they'll actually let you collect the prizes twice if you reset the line and grind like heck....:Smile_teethhappy:

Yah, either way, this is going to drain most my credits (DM, Montana, Moskava, Mino). Also have to win. But still SC is a SC.

Incoming flags/camos, RNG blesseth me.

Some observations:

  • Not sure spending ~80 million to buy 4 super containers is worth it (T10's not in port). I'll need to see what the haul is from others.
  • I assume a win in Co-op counts? It isn't specified in the details but that was how the last two similar events went.
  • Looks like I'm gonna get W. Virgina '41 after completing the fourth directive. I have all the other T6's. Wonder why Makharov isn't listed?
  • I was kinda hoping for the Anniversary cammo this year. Those were quite nice with 50% bonuses on everything. And all in white...

Many thanks WG! This is pretty good.

But where is Ark Royal???

No mention of tech tree, upgrade, or perma camo sales - meh.  No anniversary T8 perma camos.   No xDraconic flags per 1000 battles; they can be earned via containers which themselves are snowflaked or directived.  This anniversary was phoned in :cap_old:

Note 'free T6 for directives' mechanics: (TL:DR, it will give you one you don't have, unless you have all of them, and then you get doubloons, *NOT* credits.)

Rules of compensation

  • If you open a container that drops a ship you already have in your Port, you'll receive another ship from the above list.
  • If you already have all the ships from the list above in your Port when opening a container, you'll receive an amount of doubloons as compensation that corresponds to the cost of the ship which dropped from the container.
  • In addition to the compensation for the ship that you already have in your Port, you'll also receive a Port slot and Commander with 10 skill points. If you don't have a vacant place for this Commander in the Reserve, you'll receive one free of charge.

Also, to address the 'purchased' ships question:

You can get a bonus for each ship only once during Update 0.8.8. Victory Bonuses will also appear on ships purchased, bought back, or obtained from containers in Update 0.8.8

Also, 'Gift' box contents: 5 of the 'special' flags.

bout effing time they came. Nice to see supercontainers for T10s, time to see how good or bad 12 supercontainers are going to be for me (please some decent ships and/or steel), Gift containers seem mediocre though, but it is hard to complain about 5 Draconic flags though.

Thunderer for 252k coal, most expensive coal ship in the game, but I'll probably take it whenever I get enough after getting Smolensk.

Ohio for 62k Research points, was expecting that to be a lot higher, but maybe, just maybe, I'll go for it, but probably after the new year so I don't miss out on losing rewards for not having T10s in my port.

3v3 Clan brawl looks interesting.

three Supercontainers by completing directives, please be nice to me again RNG.

finish all directives and a T6 premium is yours. Please be something good like Molotov or T-61, not Huanghe.

that stuff is usually announced in a separate article, and I believe it was mentioned that there will be a dedicated article regarding anniversary events at some point around PTS 8.8.

Heh, I have all the Tier VI Premium ships on the list, except Monaghan. So if I do the directives, I'll be doing it to get her. However, is she worth it to do all that work?  I think I'm going to have to think about that. I already read Miss Maus' review, and watched Youtube videos about the ship from other CC's, when she first came out... but I didn't think much of her at the time. On top of that, a generous person kindly gifted me Sims around the same time (it was during the days when the Operation Dynamo was still around), so I felt like I had no need for Monaghan. Maybe I still don't... lol. :Smile_hiding:

Nice to see the Thunderer/Ohio out too. To think some of us wasted coal/RP on the Smol and Colbert....(sigh)

I suppose they dropped the flags per 1k battles and awarded X ships instead to punish the clubbers!

Draconic flags included in the 'snowflake' portion.  Gift box = 5 'special' flags.

Other 3 directives = 1 SC each, so just the 4th directive is the 'extra work' for the ship, imo.  If I do it, it'll just be for T6 level doubloons.  I have all of them.

Yes I know. Silly joke. Good way to do it really. I think the collectors should always be rewarded, truly equals the effort they've spent.

Ahh thanks for the notes. I'm happy i filled my remaining port slots up with tier 8-9 ships i sold before just in case they did this. Only three T10 but i guess it's better than nothing. :Smile_coin:

In the past they were dolled out simply on the battles played.  The method they are using this year will hand out much fewer than in years past.

Unless you're a collector, then you'll get more than I would have gotten.  Just distributed differently.  By ship, not by battles.  Can't make everyone happy.

So, I'll get 1 gift container.

Yay.

There was much rejoicing...

/s

That's what I got last year, so 3 for me this year. Hopefully even more next year.

No flags for every 1000 battles played makes me sad :(

You get 5 per T8 ship and 10 per T9 ship (in containers). If you reset the line, you get the flags for the ones you reset and can again if you regrind it appears. Only one SC tho.

I don’t think the collectors will benefit either, it depends on how you interpret the container description.  We’ll find out tomorrow.  Last year it was 10(?) of *all* draconic signals per 1000 battles.  The gift container might be giving 5 *of one type* of draconic signal per qualifying ship.
