Is there anyway to get these to stop dropping since they rarely give anything good anymore.   I feel like i get a half dozen every month ( i play a lot ) and i always get useless camo's or ramming flags. in my 3 years of playing i have gotten only 3 good super containers 2 steel 1500 back to back and 1 30k (i think that's what it was) in coal. it seems to be more of a crap drop then a reward.

What do you miss out on because of it? ONE container per day with something else inside.

I sense a tiny little monster inside of you screaming "Where's my ******* Belfast*, WG?"

 

* = Or whatever else it is that you don't have but want.

But... but you misunderstand...

It is not the content that is super, but the crate! 

The new WG container is spectacular... looks like injection molded carbon fibre gell with colors added. Yup.

It's the use of the word "super" which causes the disappointments. 

I've always felt they need to rename them to like... Good, great, even better, super and of course the real super containers, ones with ships, call them Unobtanium Uber Crates.

I agree that when i choose resource container and get 50 back to school camos instead.... I basically got "less" than the regular container.

What? You expect SCs to be tailored to individual players?

I'd be thrilled to get 50 of those camos....

No they are not very super

Yes they are free

Just because they are free does not make them exciting

And just because they are not exciting doesn't mean they should stop dropping.

That said, with the rarity of them, it wouldn't take a lot of effort on WG's part to make them a lot more 'super' than they are.

Half a dozen a month is a helluva droprate I get every daily container and I'm lucky if I see 1 SC a month.

Man... seriously, I remember a time when you could expect free premium time to drop quite often... once, over a period of time, I accumulated over 90 days of premium time from SCs. 

Dunker was, iirc, my last free ship drop.

Hardly useless - just not that Super either.

Be honest though, who thinks excitedly 'This could be a Super prize!' anymore? We all know that if you beat the odds to get a SC, then you have to beat the odds to get something Super like a ship AND then you have to beat the odds to get a ship you may want and/or consider Super! Come on we've seen what comes out of SC to know what to expect.  :Smile_teethhappy:

I got a Hill from one about a month ago, today's was 7 days premium. 

For some people those would be great hauls, for me they were appreciated but not spectacular. I have 450+ days of premium running so the extra 7 days was nice but hardly noticeable, and I hate mid tier USN DDs... 

That said, free stuff is always welcome, just assume you aren't getting anything "super" in the container. As we say all the time at work "manage your expectations".

The super containers,  I have gotten so few of them it’s hardly a concern for me.  The one that actually bothers me is when I select the coal containers and get less coal than I do with other types.  IE.  One bag of coal 2 sets of flags.  <. This is more the normal than one would expect for my account. 
 

sorry about your container rewards,

 

Harley

While I agree that complaining about free things is .... hilarious at best (and suicidal at worst!), I will also agree that the quality of the free items to be had in the SCs has diminished in the years since the game went live.  To be completely honest, the frequency with which I've received them seems to have gone down also. But, hey, they are still free!

The XP needed for the 3 daily crates should go like this:

 

1st Crate                     12K

2nd Crate Another    10K

3rd Crate  Another     5K

 

So you get all 3 for a total of 27K XP.

OP, you are lucky, I've got one this year, and only three last year. Two of those were fire duration flags, one ramming flags, and one was a cammo, forget which one. I'd gladly trade my luck for yours.
