I went and picked up the big Ovechkin package yesterday because why not? I wanted the two commanders, the Lexington camo would be useful, and I thought I'd take my chances with RNGesus.

All 20 containers hold 10 x victory camo and 1 x collection piece, which for me meant 15K credits in the bank per piece (I finished it the first time around) or 300,000 overall.

Each also held 10 x Draconic flags of a single type, and the results in opening order are as follows.

Hydra

Hydra

Basilisk

Wyvern

Scylla

Red Dragon

Yellow Dragon

Yellow Dragon

Leviathan

Red Dragon

Leviathan

Wyvern

Hydra plus BONUS Chapayev mission (I have the ship, but getting this finished off her B gunfire control system grind).

Hydra

Basilisk

Red Dragon plus BONUS Scharnhorst mission. I have the ship, so I got the credit payout as specified.

Leviathan

Leviathan 

Basilisk

 

RNGesus was the wry, capricious son of a female canine he always is in throwing me the credit value of a couple of ships I already have, but I knew I was up for that possibility when I did this. It is what it is, and I managed to solve my credit woes in one fell swoop. And the kids had fun opening the boxes.

What's interesting about the spread of flags is the complete lack of Ouroboros signals. You'd think that with 20 crates opened they would have dropped at least once? Make no mistake; I'm pleased with the selection I got. It just goes to show what interesting curveballs probability can throw you sometimes.

Why should I call you by the name of a bad singer?

Actually I would think the chances are slim to none on getting what I was after.

Moby D--- (they won't let me say it in full), the great white whale.

Getting what I was after wasn't the point where the flags were concerned; if anything, I got more of the flags I was short on, but the complete absence of Ouroboros drops was a statistical curiosity.

:cap_haloween:

Nice as it would have been to win missions for premium ships I don't have, you're talking to a man who has never yet pulled a ship out of a supercontainer. What did you THINK Rngesus was going to do to me? :Smile_trollface:

I was talking specifically about the results listed of only19 crates (which I mentioned) out of your 20-crate purchase. Not what you got in those 19 crates.

 “Robbed” of a crate.

Give you 20 crates for the purchase of 20 crates?

Hey, it was an observation presented in a humoristic fashion. I’m sure you got 20 crates, and just lost count in making the list. (Disclaimer offered because forumorons who deny subtle humor are a thing).

Yeah. The list was made at a time of the day before coffee had occurred. :cap_tea:

Not with event containers; they only contain specific ships. I did get all twenty; I just didn't transcribe the list properly.
