Which collections have the option to collect in regular containers?

Does anyone know what dictates whether or not collections can be passively collected?

It almost seems random.

For many there's an enable/disable switch when you go to the actual collection. Not all as they're time sensitive, but with some you can choose what you want to collect.

Also sometimes WG runs events that give you those items regardless. Recent example is Dunkirk. Started getting random Dunkirk items, even though I completed the collection. So all duplicates, 15K credits each. Thanks, I guess?

So no, not random. But you have to pay attention to what events are running and what collection is enabled (as events ending can automatically change it).

I don't know *why* some are collectible in normal containers, and some aren't, *but*, the ones that are collectible that way have a pause/collect button pair on the screen.  You can only set one collection to Collect at one time.

High School Fleet is collectible and has the pause/collect choice.  The Italian one, can't remember the name, is not, and doesn't have the choice.

Permanent collections can always be chosen but temporary ones vary depending on what the event is.

For new lines collections they aren't usually selectable as the collections are usually small enough to be able to easily collect them all during the event & the prizes usually revolve around getting containers for early release ships that become irrelevant after the line is released.

Collaboration events (like HSF) are permanent because the collections are large & require a long time to get all the components & they are a permanent addition to the game.

Just a couple examples but don't know all of the parameters.
