Disappointment in SC prizes

With a SC for the 1st victory in a T10 ship there were copious SC post in the forum, many were very disappointed in their reward.

I'm grinding coal for the Pommern. My 3rd container last night was a SC.  It had 25 Ouroboros flags. Of course the more FXP the better.

But this time I was disappointed. I wanted coal. Yes, I know if I got the normal "More Resources" container the max I would get was 1200 coal plus the clan bonus but most likely just 400 coal.

sometimes you can't help being disappointed. 15,000 more coal would have been nice. Life maybe a bed of roses but these roses have thorns.

BTW, NO! I don't feel cheated.

FYI, the average Resources crate yields a bit more than 500 Coal, plus your clan bonus.

I have been getting more than the normal number of these.

Maybe a Wiki gut would know, did they increase the chances of coal?

I bet half of the supercontainers I got for the T10's were 7 days of premium....

 Mine too.  Of course I quit buying premium a while ago and have little use for it.

Super containers seem less crappy now that regular containers have been tuned down to near uselessness.  I can't be the only one who noticed they've all but removed camo drops.  What?  Another collection emblem?  Not even worth clicking the open container button anymore.

Nah.  RNG is favoring you.  :Smile_medal:

 

It won't last.

I calculate how many days before I reach the 171,000 needed with coupon to get the Pommern as 400 from each daily container, 400 from the 6 daily missions for a total of 1600 per day. The 800 & 1200 coal containers are welcome bonuses. 

Last night I needed about 24 days @ 1600 per day to cover the remaining amount.

I get runs of more than normal 1200 coal containers every now & than but it seem to always when I too low to think about grinding for any ship. I guess I getting a little antsy since my son got his Pommern so it seem longer.

I was really luck with my seven SCs. Last crate even had a Siroco.

The other thing that's nice is the 500-coal drops for the current Twitch combat missions. You have to have some pretty decent games, but 500 coal a pop for 5,000 extra coal total so far...

You pulled a ship, a pretty new one at that.  Count yourself lucky already.

 

I did all 35 super containers.  This isn't a complete list of what I pulled but it's the important ones that stood out.

7500 Doubloons (1k x5  with 2.5k x1 drop)

86 days Premium Acct (7 days x8 with 30 days x1)

30k Coal (15k x4)

100 Dragon Flags

 

Premium Acct time was falling out everywhere.

I opened 12 SCs and three had 7 days of premium time, two had 1k doubloons and the rest were flags & camo.  All in all not terrible prizes but nothing to be excited about either. I was actually more happy with the 120 oil that the crates brought in than the prizes, so much so I played my tier 9s for the oil alone. Probably will not bother with anything at tier 8 or below as it does not seem to be worth the effort required. What the event did do was remove my motivation to get any more tier 10 ships.

I really must have the worst of the worst RNG when it comes to such things.

Press "F" to pay respects.

Reminds me of my usual luck for any container that has a chance of dropping something cool, SC, Santa, Black, Lunar, etc...

More like this:

WG: this is how you EARN a supercontainer

Player:  This "super" means that what is inside will be Super, or special, or actually worth having.

Player EARNS SC and get 25 flags that are ok, but only situational in use.  Player feels "super" is not an apt description based on actual reward. 

Player: comes to forum to voice their concern.

You:  whines about players freely expressing their opinion.

Me: your a dweeb, if you have nothing constructive to say, just don't reply. 

Here is the constructive part.  Players earn things,  WG has yet to just drop stuff i did not spend time earning into my account.  If I earned it and don't like it, I have every right voice my concern to WG; after all, i spent the time in game earning the prize.

Well.... you know what sets that up...

Player 1 post:  I won all this stuff.  Thanks WG!  (ship, coal, dubs)

Player 2 post:  Wow!  I won all this stuff!  (two ships, coal, free XP, dubs)

Player 3 post:  AWESOME!  JACKPOT!!! (three ships, coal, free xp, dub, steel)

 

The rest of us?   Crosses fingers and hopes for a little taste.   Sometimes WeeGee serves something sour.  :cap_cool:

"Earn"

Play a co-op and win....

Wow thats hard....

A super container has a "chance" to drop a premium ship, gold, steel, free exp, days of premium....

I actually am thrilled with all the flags and great cammos I got. 

Not to mention the Graff Zepplin, 1500 steel and 3k gold.

45000 coal made up for the last 7 months of 100 flags I've gotten from SC...
