Reduced Coal in daily containers?

Has anyone noticed that the daily resource containers don't give the same amount of coal they used to?  I used to get 800 & 1200 coal routinely, but now all I get is 400 and my rate of collecting coal has slowed greatly.

RNG affects daily drops, too.  You are just having a bad run.  I haven't noticed any change.

RNGesus is screwing with you. I've received enough 2 and 3 coal crates lately that I have no need to complain.

In addition, the other things the crates can give (flags and free XP) are so nice to have raining down from the skies that I don't much care if the coal accumulation rate is a little lower. Given the amount of time I spend in co-op, I'll take three Equal Speed Charlie Londons over a crate of coal any day.

Since Christmas, I've managed to get Salem, Jean Bart and Smolensk, and I'm already halfway to Thunderer. I can wait a little longer given the other stuff I get.

Can't say as I've noticed a difference in the daily containers. Opening a routine container with 800 or 1200 coal has always been a pretty uncommon event for me. If anything, my coal accumulation rate is up recently.  But that's probably because I opened a supercontainer full of coal a few weeks ago, and I may still be basking in the glow of that happy event.

I don’t think it has changed, there a WG staff post not long ago stating the haven’t changed the possibilities of 2 & 3 coal drops. I have got JB, Smolensk, and Yoshino this year so I’m pleased with my coal earnings

Got 1200 drop on both Friday and Saturday, first drop of the day both times.  This keeps getting brought up, but it's just self-confirmation bias.  Previously I have gone a week with only 400 coal per drop plus free xp and flags for all 3 crates, it's random that way.

RANDOM.

Mostly my resource containers have been "normal", with one or two shipments of coal weighing 200 to 400 tons per bag.
The bothersome thing for me has been the erratic and reduced frequency of collection items inside containers.

This has not changed at all. 200, 400 and 1200 drops are no less nor more frequent than they ever have been. The perception that any has decreased nor increased is either paranoia or wishful thinking.

Didn't resource containers always have two bags of coal in every drop?  Hence the name Resource...  Now it's more often just one, and two, if you're lucky.  If I'd wanted flags, I'd select the flag option.

Nope, it's always been one guaranteed drop of coal.

RNGesus giveth and RNGesus taketh away.  I got an 800, a 1200, and a 400 yesterday.  

Don't succumb to the confirmation bias on this one.

I'm with the OP, I have been lately getting 400 coal and signal flags.

 

Same here .   I have been getting less coal but more free xp so it's not to bad I guess
