New patch came online so I went into the armory to see what's needed for the early access Heavy Cruisers and saw this beauty.

Or you can get a chance at these *TECH TREE* ships early access through the free currency.

So.  $4 for 6% chance of jumping into the middle of a tech tree.  Statistics doesn't quite work this way, but 8 bundles ($32) gets me in the vicinity of a 50% chance.

Hmm...  I think I'd rather have the groceries.

Did you miss the bundle that is for British Tokens which can be earned by interacting with the game via daily shipments, missions, and directives?

As per usual, paying will get you things quicker and easier, but there is still plenty of options and opportunities for players not wanting to pay.

Fem,

Fem, 

I did see those bundles, but my experience with the free crates has never given me a ship after hundreds of openings.  Are the odds better than usual in the crates for tokens?

Fem, 

People are just trigger happy after the PR Fire.  My first bundle waiting for me was the DEVONSHIRE.. Not sure if everyone will see that first thing but yeah.. I got it.  People will calm down as they see that these can be gotten for free.  Not their faults for being twitchy about this though.

My first bundle was the t5 ship (for 1,000 doubloons).  It also includes the premium camo.

I wonder if WG is still claiming all the ships have the same drop rate chance this time.  They have stated before that all tiers of ships, T5-T8, have the same drop rate...but most people seem to get the ships in numerical order, lowest to highest.  A few outliers, but I highly doubt they are all the same chance.

The 4-5 times they've done this, I have always gotten the T5 first, then 6, etc. We shall see.

I spent 20,000 dubs on it. Got two cruisers out of it, tier V and VI. I stopped there. The other rewards aren't really worth it.

would love to see them post the odds but that's not in their best interest so won't unless forced

edit: talking odds of a ship dropping or ratio of all potentials

The odds of these bundles ARE posted.  How could you have missed that?  Even more than that, the content of your currently purchasable bundle is known 100%!

 


One complication to a straight statistical evaluation is that the contents of the crate you are about to purchase is known.  The Armory shows it to you.  So what you are purchasing is the shown bundle, plus a 6% chance to have the next bundle turn up a ship.

As I said above - 6%.  4 chances of 65.  That will change as bundles and ships are received, but 6% is the base chance. 

Probably coincidence, in PT my first bundles for Dubs and Tokens were both ships. I could see both bundle contents before I bought them.  Thereafter, of 16 or so more bundles, no ships.

^this. It pisses me off that players don’t realize that they don’t have to pay money for in-game items. Like actually read the directives and descriptions and do the math, you’ll realize that you can get basically whatever you want if you’re patient and play regularly.

I bought 2 bundles for dubloons.  Got the T5 Hawkins on the second bundle.  I stopped there.  O/4 on the token crates.  Whoever posted the line gets better at T7 is correct.  First salvo of the game at me.  Full health ...  Sunk.  LOL  I did better in the Italian T5.

A lot of us preferred guaranteed value over lottery tickets. On events like this, many, including myself, preferred throwing our event tokens at permacamo instead of loot boxes.

Fem, 

You are correct, but making the appearance of HAWKINS to look like a Premium Ship for 1000 doubloons is beyond shenanigans, down right pathetic way to scam your customers.
