Not a Shabby Supercontainer

I always go for "more resources" as the only flags I'm usually concerned with are the economic ones that allow tier X games to be played without losing credits. Therefore, I thought that this was a nice super container to receive.

I got to thinking though if it would have been nicer to get, say, a hundred Zulu flags. Yes, it would as 15,000 coal pays for only 46 Zulu flags. However, it's better to get the coal than a hundred of a flag I never use.

I'd like to see that SC at some point in my account that's been active for 3 years...

 

How much do you play? I've probably gotten a hundred super containers over the past three years, though not all from daily drops per se. However, I've only seen two or three coal ones. The best ones I've received were a ship, 30 days of Premium time, and several that had 1000 doubloons.

Nice.  I got one SC the other day - 100 Zulus.  I won't complain - but I like your SC better.

I have received one since I started playing. Had some nice camo's and flags. The special flags were nice, but the others were ones I rarely use. I did win a Bismarck, but not sure how I got it, I think from completing an event. Wish I could get the coal one as I'm saving for a Georgia and its going to take a while as I'm only around 70k coal at best last I checked.

100 SC in 3 year? Lol. You sure about that? I see maybe one a month or three. I call B-sh[edited].

If you are playing for three crates a day, a hundred supercontainers over three years is not unreasonable.

The other day I was lucky enough to get 1500 steel in container.

I will admit, even at the height of my playing, when I was getting three crates a day, I was lucky to get a SC once a month (more like 1 every 6 weeks).  Now, haven't seen one in about 6 months.

I got one a while back and got pretty lucky. I ended up getting the USS Texas out of it. While I would have liked something higher tiered, she is still fun to play when in a dual carrier division. That AA is a monster at tier V, basically a big no fly zone for any carrier.

That's probably too big of a number for supercontainers per se. We all tend to hype things up a bit in conversation. However, I've gotten two in the last week while trying to grind through the Halloween event for the camouflages.

Given that there are some days I don't play and others that I max out on containers, let's say that I average two containers a day at a 2% drop rate for supercontainers (an average of going for regular drops about half of the time and try your luck drops about half of the time) -- that's about 45 supercontainers in three years.

Then, add to that the quite a few supercontainers from events, campaigns, and other things and at least 50% can be added to that number, if not doubling it per se. And don't forget the times WG has given us supercontainers for weird things like server malfunctions and not playing the game for a couple of weeks too. 

And there are the super Santa gifts that people have sent me and super pumpkins, etc. too, which are essentially supercontainers because they contain ships, doubloons, etc. as do supercontainers. Thus, I'd say I've received close to a hundred very nice goodie boxes in the past three years.

My last wild Supercontainer was back in January, with 30 days premium time.  Haven't gotten one since, unless you count the ones from the Halsey campaign.

CLASSIC LIB- 

some of these had to be tied to that progression mission to tier X or something otherwise someone has tweaked something for you on your luck factor. no way this is 99% of the population OR you have cracked the what to pick code when. You are hitting these in clumps. Something is up.

Probably less if you aren't pulling TYL, but you can see my data: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1F0yNb48HcZRYuMpTOb7VmClyds04Rq_ZdfNaehCMrU0/edit#gid=1138494323

well at 4% that is 129 SC's if you pull 3 boxes a day for 3 years. I don't know i guess it is possible but i thought the pull rate avg was around 1% which is basically about 1 per month. I wonder if somehow this is not random. lol. I doubt i even see 1 per month. so good luck to you guys that have cracked the code. Go buy a lotto ticket.

Empirically, the community has determined that the odds for a standard container choice dropping a supercontainer are about 1.5%. "Try Your Luck" doubles this to about 3%. Thus, it is statistically possible to get 100 supercontainers in three years of daily play. However, I haven't played every day, nor went "try your luck" every time either but I've received supercontainers in other ways.

Campaign 6 + Welcome Back 3 + Latest "Snowflake" Event 6 =  there's 15 right there. Through the years, there have been lots of other events that gave out supercontainers, as well as premium time, doubloons, ships, and premium camouflages. WG is pretty generous to its dedicated players.
