T10's get 4 usable flage, t5 -t9 get coal and steel.  This is the first time I have seen something like this where you are penalized for running high tiers.

Yeah, they really should have bumped it up to the Big or Mega sized crates if they wanted to reward us with RNG. I ran through all of my T10s and got some camo and 300 doubloons...

But yeah steel and coal > Flags and camo

Initially, I was slightly disappointed because I wanted steel, but I am a sucker for loot crates. Now, when I found out the loot crate they gave me for a victory in a TIER TEN was the cheapest version possible, I felt gipped. Well as gipped as you can feel for still getting something for free.

I think you need to look up the word 'penalized' because I do not think it means what you think it means. A more accurate and correct description would be you are not being rewarded as much. It's stupid, but accuracy in complaint is important.

When you compare a small Santa crate to a super container (what a T10 earns for WGing’s anniversary) it’s like apples to oranges. Not complaining but it is a reduction...

Whole lot of complaining for people receiving free stuff. Before last Christmas season, I don't remember us getting anything at all from WG. Then they made the mistake of rewarding players with steel last year just for playing their ships and now people have the audacity to complain about getting a free Santa box for each T10 they own.

 

Edit: lol go ahead and give me an angry emoji and be mad that you're being given Santa boxes for free. I think that's very petty and entitled to be pissed off over it. If there's anything to be angry about, it's the literally impossible directives for earning the "free" Puerto Rico. That alone is good enough reason for me to never give WG another cent. I stopped buying anything from this company a year ago anyway. At this point, they're just solidifying my resolve not to.

I think there is a fair share between people who are legitimately complaining, and those who are more "bummed" out that they did not get something as good as they did last year. The case can also be made that it is only "fair"(I hate using that word) that a player base who will at times pay upwards of $50 for a virtual ship should be rewarded for their continued commitment to the game.

Agreed on all counts. The small Santa boxes were not a good substitute for 75 steel.

even if you had 50 ships to earn steel from, that's only 3750 steel. That's such a small amount it doesn't even matter.

Well steel is a tougher commodity for those of us that don't clan war...   I do get some for ranked to the point I can stand it.     So the steel is a valuable commodity to me.     Coal is rather easy to get.   But it would just take one good RNG drop to change anybody's mind on the value of that small santa gift for the Tier 10s.

I concentrated on grinding tier 8-9 in preparation for this , still would rather have the steel for T10's though , I figure WG needs to hear opinions going forward so that's mine .

I’d rather get 75 steel for my T8s rather than my T10s. I’ve got more of them...
