If i knew rngesus would bless me like this, then I would have bought Christmas crates. Haven't had this luck with the previous french or italian events. Not sure I like the unlimited free token box idea, but its the same as the random crate drop of previous events. At least I can see what I am getting with this model. However if there is a premium involved like Genova, then they cannot be unlimited crates. Overall pretty good balance this event and the easy grind is welcome.

The first one was the T6 Devonshire, was fun but im looking to try out the T8 now. The AA in the t6 and the def aa consumable made the enemy cv really dislike me in that game. Doesn't make me dread the multi cv games in the bottom tiers with that ship. What I am liking is the good concealment on these cruisers. Can kite and choose engagements pretty well.

There are two downsides to the RN CA's. The first is the short range of the guns. The second is the glass jaw, they are true glass cannons but if you play with that in mind they are fun.

It blessed you like this because you didn’t buy Xmas crates.  If you had, you’d never receive one through the entire event.

Last night I purchased two crates for 1,000 doubloons each.  The second crate contained the Albemarle.
I figured my luck had reached a "best to quit while I'm ahead" status.  :-)

Agreed, I played them a bit similar to the Italian cruisers. The lack of smoke is balanced by low concealment. I think I prefer the low concealment over the smoke, but both lines have been quite enjoyable

In the French event, the Guepard dropped before the Jaguar for me. Otherwise it has either been lower tier first or (for the Russian BB event) T5 only. (That was because you had to buy the unlock-chance boxes with tokens, but they were the same tokens you had to use for the premium cruiser or the T8 permacamos - I'm sure I could have got more if I'd spent all my tokens on them, but I had other priorities).

The RNG will come back to haunt you. I got the low tier Halloween camos very quickly. Then the T10 camo took was one of the last and took forever to grind.
