Unless you are strapped for credits or need cammo, why choose anything but "More Resources" when selecting a daily container?

I tracked my container results for the first half of the year. 546 containers could have been collected over the 182 day period from Jan 1 to Jun 30.

  • I collected 500 daily containers.
  • Only three were not "More Resources" containers (missed collecting them at end of day so they defaulted to "More Credits").
  • Of the 497 remaining 10 were Super Containers (a 2% chance per container!).

The 487 "More Resources" containers yielded quite a haul.

  • 259,600 Coal (without clan bonus)
  • 144,500 Free XP
  • 189 Zulu signals
  • 558 Equal Speed Charlie London signals
  • 192 Zulu Hotel signals
  • 234 Papa Papa signals
  • 165 Juliet Charlie signals
  • 156 November Foxtrot signals
  • 75 Hotel Yankee signals

This is too lucrative to pass up!

Your mileage may vary but best of luck with your container choices.

Thanks, nice to see such info collected, and goes to show how despite the seeming taking forever to get coal for ships, it does add up fast enough.

Then you add in up to +10% Clan bonus you get 285,560, and then who knows how much added coal from missions, a bonus crates, Snowflakes, and events like the Sprints all added up.

I don't keep track like that, but I do know one thing.

I can afford to purchase a high tier coal ship every 6 months.

Resources is the only way to go.  :cap_like:

Yeah think it’s been the only crate type I have selected since just after the Armory was introduced.

I have been saying since we added the new crates (a long time ago) the "More Resources" crates, IMO have always been the best choice! Nice break down!

Interesting.

Nice haul, but not a single ship or lick of steel in any of those SC's.

I've yet to get either of those in a SC. Can't really complain about what I did get though.

Sure. 

As long as we can both agree that the Halloween camo is both ugly and virtually useless.

Ugly, yes. Useless, no, not a 100% XP bonus. That is a benefit if you can get past the ugly...

Nice datasheet! You definitely tracked more details than I. The percentages seem to have no more than a 1% variance.

It's Counter_Gambit's sheet.  I just plugged my numbers into it.  But yes, very revealing.  Nice work on yours, btw.

I'd say the Phantom Fortress camo is more intimidating than ugly.

Not to mention they kind of look like Hell Monsters from HomeAnimations/Gerand.

Great post, OP.

Questions for anyone who cares to answer:

1. I’ve been wondering about the “try your luck” option to supposedly have a higher chance of a SC. What triggers that option to show up? Sometimes it’s there and sometimes not.

2. Do SCs actually look any different? I assume I have gotten some because ships showed up in my inventory early on (Smith, Albany) when I wasn’t really paying much attention and I usually just hit Open All and see what’s there.

Got a triple coal today. Woot!

Got two of those consecutively last week.  Prolly should have placed some Vegas bets then.

Except that's the only bonus it provides.  Almost every other single-use camo has more benefits built in than that one.

I honestly don't think I've ever used one of them before for that reason.

I have a dream that someday there will be a checkbox so it always picks that type and I don't even have to bother going "collect container" and spending that 42 seconds 3x a day (or whatever it actually is,) to watch the arms swing out and drop the more resources. 

Tnx for the breakdown.

and here i thought i am the only geek who keeps track on container results :-)

BTW, I average 541 coal per resources container (not counting clan bonus and a 15k SC).

SCs are larger and yes, look different. They also come with a bluish glow.

lol

After the changes, my pulls are Signals/Resources/TYL. Every tenth round I pull one credits container.

Basically that (plus Consumables when that was still a thing,) since Dailies started.

As Khafni said; YMMV, and mine has been reasonably good. Not as much coal of course, but there aren’t any coal ships I want right now, and I have plenty of the other items.

Yes, SCs are bigger and have gold dice stenciled on.

I like to watch the arms swing out, but like you, I wish for a checkbox so we can always opt for a particular crate type every time we hit collect.

I like opening them one by one and recording the results.

I think I've got at least two supercontainers, maybe three, with steel. But as yet, no ship. I'm sure RNGesus is saving it all up for something big.
