Hi all,

Just finished the third directive today, and I wanted to show you this epic drop from a Soviet Container.

Currently feeling like a high roller atm.  Just totally amazing results - unlikely to be repeated in the remainder of this event. 

Hope everyone is having fun...

LOL, I hear ya! The best thing about these containers is that I don't give a crap about getting the ships or camo early. I've already ground out the XP and WG can stick their pathetic "random" containers in their...

To be fair, WG has made it easy with this event. 

Dish out so many 5 token containers, make playerbase overjoyed and estatic when you get SPECIAL BONUS DOUBLE STANDARD DROP once in 40 containers.

Yeah, I think WG "overtuned" the drop rate of 5 token boxes for this event. I'll pick up the Talinn either today or tomorrow since the Bagration and Mikoyan challenges will reset.  I suspect that I will earn enough for Riga's perma camo and that will be all for this event.  I might have tried to gamble with the 500 doubloon boxes, but thankfully the very first box had only 5 tokens and saved me from my base instincts.

There is no RNG with these token crates it is all Bell curve heavily weighted towards 5 token drops.

Out of 47 crates opened so far:

  • 24 -   5 token
  • 13 - 10 token
  •   9 - 15 token
  •   1 - 25 token

So far of 38 crates, I've had 26 with five tokens, 6 with ten tokens, 4 with fifteen tokens, and 2 with twenty-five tokens.

Haven't been counting crates (and not inclined to fire up synapses to figure it out) but your results sound similar to mine. I have 280 and will finish D3 tonight. <shrug>

I find it sad that some WG employees still speak about "RNG" tokens in this event. 

There has never been a more obvious example that randomness plays a minor role with loot boxes ... regardless of the event.

In a nutshell, if we all play regularly we all get the premium port queen to add to our collection of ships we don't play. The 1-2% will get the perm camo and perhaps more.

Just because the outcome is random does not mean that every outcome has an equal chance to occur. The drops are without a doubt heavily weighed towards 5 token drops. Every RNG-based lootbox in any game that uses them is always weighted towards the lower-value rewards. Just look at the random bundle information in the armory, where 50/100 contain 5 tokens, 25 contain 10 tokens, etc. It would not surprise me if that is a decent approximation of the drop rates from the containers.

Some people get good RNG draws, others do not. Also, keep in mind that unlike the bundles, each container drop is completely independent of the others, so it’s technically possible to open a thousand containers and end up with 5000 tokens. Myself, I haven’t spent a dime and already have the Tallin camo, and if I’m reasonably lucky I’ll have enough tokens at the end of the event to grab the ship.

Did not know there was a 25 token box, must be one of those rare boxes like the 300 token box. If I am lucky I will make 400 tokens by the end of the 4th directive.

Same here, thought I was seeing things when it came up.

I got one of those High Roller boxes too when I got the 10 containers for completing the latest directive.  One High Roller box with 10 tokens and nine standard boxes with 5 tokens.

Thx for the laugh.  I almost don't want to open the stupid soviet containers cause of this anymore.  5 tokens is USELESS and so annoying.

I knew it would be bad RNG when my first SC of the year dropped yesterday, got India Yankee flags, the exact flags as my last SC. My 11 soviet boxes today netted 65 tokens. WooHoo. I might need an RNG reset.

46 or 47 containers opened and still waiting for my first 300 to drop.

I am waiting for the 300 box also, but I think I have a better chance of my hair regrowing where I have lost it on my head.

I received I think a SC last couple days ago and got the same thing India Yankee, I figure better than nothing I use those flags. Just getting a SC I thought was  big deal something. I next to never see anymore.

It's pretty silly how RNG completely trivialises stuff. I got a 300 container by the end of Directive 2. Unlocking Mikoyan gives you 315 more, making getting the camouflage a pretty easy ndeavor. A second 300 container should all but guarantee Tallinn as well. Just cause RNG.
