Cruiser Tallinn for Token, a pipe dream?

I just received my first Soviet container. I got a whopping 5 tokens. This this a freak'n joke?  or another PR type deception where the only way to actually get the Tallinn is to buy crates? 

I think buying back and grinding Shchors is going to be much easier than  finishing all the directives with little to no chance of getting 1200 tokens.  With 5-10 token containers the chances are slim to none.

Yeah, the crates seem to be absurdly stingy. On the plus side, at least you can grind out Tallinn for free once the early access event ends (as opposed to Puerto Rico).

This.  Some will get the through to the third level, but I would guess the average will be about 1.8 rewards for free.

It's all up to RNG. You're guaranteed to get Mikoyan, anything else requires either luck, money or both (money via either buying the new ships and running the missions for them, or spending doubloons in the Armory)

I was getting stiffed, until the very last container I got from the first set of Directives gifted me with 300 tokens. Thank you RNGesus.

My advice. If you have Shchors start playing it often to grind the XP needed for Tallinn. It's obvious that WG wants players to pay $$ for early release of non premium ships.

Yeah, the missions drop jack for tokens.  Also, it seems it's tucked behind lots of bundles that have to be purchased before you can get to it.  Continuing the trend of terrible game events that's been going on since 2019.

That's quite good but not exceptional. About what I saw as well (although I got skunked until the last container, which gave me 300)

My rng has been fairly good. Other events not so good, others just meh. The events are fine as far as I’m concerned. More free stuff just for playing plus oil for the clan, no issue for me.

Yes, although most will be 5-15 tokens

300 is the highest possible from a container.

Just opened EIGHT CONTAINERS and received  40 ( FOURTY ) freak'n tokens total. What a scam!   

Finished all missions in the directive, 9 containers with total of 45 tokens. At this rate I can positively say that that this is another WG deception where they make it seem as if we can actually win something beyond the first bundle while the reality is that your odds of doing so are almost nil. 

Total waste of time

I have received 8 Soviet containers and have a total of 60 tokens... for the math-challenged, that an average of 7.5 tokens per container. At this rate I will need to open 32 more containers to obtain the Mikoyan. Hmm...

I have one more to obtain in Stage One.... that's 1...

Thirteen possible (for me) in Stage Two.... that's 14...

Now, between Stages Two and Three I should have gotten 6 remaining containers from the Daily Log-ins... that's 20

which means, if the average holds, I'd need to secure twelve of the fifteen available (to me) containers in Stage Three.... that'd be 32...

I earned every container I could get free by now and averaging something like 7 tokens.

It's even worse then the PE DD event. But hey, you can buy 100 of those 500 gold lootboxes. And two premium T8 cruisers to let you grind extra tokens every day.

I just ignore this. I play T7 and T9 to get enough XP to unlock the next tier ship when they hit the life server.

WG had seen how much money the whales leave in their account, just get used to that they care about the top 5% who spend the money. Because they don't ask for something, they just pay. And they make a good part of their profit.

For the fanbois, stop with the crap, this is a free to play game. It's more a milking the whales game and forget about he rest of the player base.

Are any of you really surprised by this?

After everything else they had done to us, I'm not.

This pipe dream is easier and very satisfying and every one wins in just 3 minute and 52 seconds.

I got 1 10 and the rest 5s so far. Even my first random doubloon bundle is 5, can't see the point to buy any this go round unless I'm 10 to 15 tokens shy of something worth it.

Rather than Shchshchooors, I'm going to just use FXP.

I collected 85 tokens after opening 9 Soviet containers.  Fortunately, my expectations for the event were low from the get-go and WG has not disappointed.

8 crates totaling 65 tokens.  Not terribly impressed, but also not surprised.  Not going to worry about early unlocks at this rate, will likely just wait til 9.5 and get them for free.

In WG's hopes to maximize profits by minimizing valuable drops they have effectively pushed quite a few people away from spending ANY money on this event. 

Great job. lmbo
