So I bought into the tokens thing and spent my $10 on 50 of the little buggers. I just wrapped up the tokens mission chain and had another 15 in the Armory giving me a total of 65, yep, 65. My options (in my humble head) were:

  • 3 Air Supply - I don't really play CV too much but Enterprise would be a nice addition as I already have the other three that could pop in an Air Supply crate. Other prizes were coal, cammo, special signals.
  • 3 2018/2019 Black Friday - I have Scharnhorst Black but having a black version of ship that I already have isn't all that appealing (even if the cammo is kool). Other prizes were Dubs, cammo, premium time, or FreeXP.
  • 5 Santa's Big Gift - If a ship dropped I'd get one that I don't have. There are 8 ships on that list that I don't have so that was good. Other prizes were Dubs, cammo, premium time, coal, special signals.

I decided to get "moah" for my tokens and picked the 5 Santa's Big Gift. The first container waiting for me was a Supercontainer! That means a ship -

I now add Roma to my fleet. Some like this ship, some don't. I don't do much BB driving, being a DD main, but I'm glad to have her for $10!

The rest was 24 Frosty Fir Tree cammo, 12 New Year Streamer cammo, and 1,000 Dubs. All this is great stuff! The cammos are the better ones that come from a crate and the Dubs always come in handy. (Maybe Roma only cost $6???)

Thanks, WG, for the "Summer Sale". Great discounts if you have luck with the loot boxes. But, of course, YMMV...

Best of luck to all y'all gamblers!

The tokens from the chain are free for doing what I was already doing, the achievements one may well stop me from getting any more, but that okay as I am not spending energy worrying about getting them.

I approached this event like all the others:

  • What is on offer?
  • How does this compare to what I was already planning to do?
  • Is there anything special that I care about?

I bought the Atlanta bundle as I need a few more doubloons and Port Slots. (I already have Atlanta.)

I made a few other purchases with Tokens attached that I would have made without them, so they were effectively free (or nearly as the signals bundle is a bit worse than the larger one).

I will spend the Tokens on the Big Santa crates as I can use more of the Special Signals, and the rest of the options are fine.

Anything I don't spend will become a decent camo.

Five Big Santas got me a Loyang (which I had the camo for already) and some camos/flags.  Calling that a win.

Picked up the Atlanta bundle for the dubs and used the extra tokens towards a tier VI box and got Ark Royal.  Probably the least wanted of the three ships I didn't have but the Furious has been a bit of a struggle coming from US/Jap CVs.

Finally, in a move partially motivated by it being a good deal and partially by spite because of all of the whining from some about not getting what they wanted and the bleating about "gambling", I grabbed another 60 tokens and grabbed three Air Supply containers.  Those yielded Enterprise, flags and Saipan.

I can't buy the dailies with doubloons that I already have, so I opted out. I might buy the camo for Atlanta if it goes for sale for doubloons after this event.

Genuine congrats Khafni. 

Bought no tokens and am unsure if I will win/grind enough playing the mode I have decided to play to 'purchase' anything?

I have more ships than I can play already, so I expect WG to offer me something that I feel is worth the price before I spend. They have not!

They have offered a chance of generally getting signals/expendable camo/etc (something I can just purchase, if wanted).

A very slim chance of getting a ship, but with all the ships still available, if I did win a ship it is likely to be one I'm not interested in (worth playing instead of another ship) - so will be a port Queen.

Or a very, very, very slim chance of getting one of 4-5 ships out there that I feel I would actually place in the 'worth playing over other ships - so would get used'.

Even the joke camo for a ship that had a great joke played on it (Atlanta), is 50% more expensive to get than the same bonus camo that comes with that tier ship. By all means WG, take the P out of the Atlanta with the AA and IFHE changes, but don't try to take the P out of me. :Smile_honoring:

I am very happy for those that see this Summer Sale event as something they can get something from, that is worth spending their money on.

I got the Saipan in the first air drop crate. Played one game then sold it for credits. What a boring ship concept CVs are

Quite a haul! Ark Royal is great for Operations and, in my opinion, plays better than Furious.
