Please don't let this thread devolve into arguments pro/anti boxes.

I wanted to get my kid a Missouri and a Musashi but I'm not even angry I didn't.

It's a game. A fun game after all. Thanks!

To clarify - these were all mega (biggest) boxes. I actually recorded everything and might upload to YouTube at some point.

And now to make you feel bad: I got 2 T5's and T9 Georgia out of 20 Big Crates. R N Gesus thinks quite highly of me.

yeah but how many ships did you already have?  that is the key.

If the goal is to get the high tier ships, this is the strategy that I would use:

  • Buy few crates at a time, like 20 of them.
  • Use the doubloons to buy low tier ships that are on the list which you do not have.
  • Use the coal to buy low tier ships that are on the list which you do not have.
  • Buy another 20, and do the same as before, if you win, a ship, it will likely be a higher tier ship because you have purchased the lower one.

This is based upon the idea that WG has given a higher probability of winning lower tier ships that are available through the Armory or Premium ship.  As those ships are attained by you, then you will the probability of a rare ships is much higher.

OR you'll get more flags, camos, etc. Only WG overlords know for sure.

Now you will be buying credits to afford putting upgrades on all those ships at the same time. 

 

Here is to hoping you have the time to play each ship more then once.

So based on $75 x 20, you spent around $1260 and got (at standard prices)

$192 in Premium Time

$528 in doubloons

Around $585 in T8 Premiums

Around $330 in T7 Premiums

Around $220 in T6 Premiums

Around $170 in T5 Premiums

So between $2000-$2100 in ala carte value before trying to figure in coal / flags / camo.

Assuming OP isn't lying, and if I did have more expendable income than I do right now I would throw him a box.  Seriously, this is messed up.

That's like......$500 in crates.

Well not necessarily.

16 * 20 + 8 + 8 = 336

If they were the Santa's Gifts, it's 16 * 17.99 + 7.49 + 7.49 = 302.82

If they were Santa's Big Gifts, its' 16 * 47.99 + 21.59 + 21.59 = 811.02

And, if they were Santa's Mega Gifts, it's 16 * 74.99 + 33.99 + 33.99 = 1267.82

They appear to be all mega crates.

If I calculated it right he spend $1587 on creates.

Edit: I'd also like to point out that I was working on the assumption that he bought the 20x Containers for 94.47 CAD which is the cheapest possible bundle you can get for the most amount of containers.

336 ÷ 20=16.8

16.8 × 94.47=1587.096

$1587 CAD or for my American friends out there $1205.52

That's pretty sound logic  , I can almost guarantee the t5 and 6 drop chance is way higher.
