...for 2 Supercontainers?  What do you think?

Just finished the first mission, 55 kills.  I haven't kept exact track, but believe I average 6-7 kills per battle.  295 more kills means 40-50 rounds.  Having trouble getting excited about this.

Not really worth it in my opinion since you're giving up XP, Free XP and Elite Captain XP. Chances of getting something special from the Super Containers is quite slim. Sure, the special signals are nice, but have to do a lot to get them.

The real grind prize is a Tier 8 and Tier 9 permacamo that you can put on any ship which isn't ARP, HSF or Azur Lane.

I never done the clan bit so I've no idea of the economics in that arena.

Well,  I have taken a liking to it. Have been doing the battleship directives in this mode as I can finish them in about ten games. Have both camos and both super containers. Got 100 commander exp flags and 15000 coal so it was worth it to me. Going to cash I  the rest for silver to make up for the lost revenue.

Yea this goes for me too. The ability to earn commander xp has always been a big plus in the events. Removing it this time, right before we're getting 2 additional skill points to have to fund, was pretty poor form by WG.

After gaining a Commander, I've mostly left the big hunt alone.
Goodies are goodies.  Grind for what you like.  It is a novelty.

No it is not worth the effort!  Too little reward for too much effort. 

You may get worthless signals in one or both crates, and then how would you feel about the grind.

The opposite is you could get 2 ships, HA, HA, HA like that woudl ever happen.

That works out to about 0.8 camos per battle; the daily loot containers treat you better than that.

That is quite a grind for 1 or 2 perma-camos.

Im thinking maybe run a secondary Gale and spend half the game mopping up the mobs and then intentionally dying to a player rather than fighting out the next five minutes for maybe one extra kill and churn back to porn for more mob hunting.

I did it and got camos on both SCs. I did it with a friend, we syncdropped and met somewhere on the map.. don't blame me, I like playing with friends and WG for some reason decided that playing with friends in this mode is.. bad?

AT LEAST one of the SCs got me 50 International Women's Day camos, which is fine because I had zero of those and it looks mean af.

Add 8k doubloons worth for 2 T9 camos (not sure if the value goes up when you can put them on any ship so 8k is just the minimum value of them).

I've finished everything and gotten all rewards. I had fun. Got 40k FXP and 50x Type 59 camps, a Tier IX and Tier VIII permacamo, three unique insignias, three commanders, and a pile of credits.

I was thinking the same thing, then I realized there are still 16 days left.

That's just 4-5 battles per day. And since I play key battles for the 2nd and 3rd mission of he dailies anyway it's no big deal to play a couple more.

I also finished the 55 kill mission. I'm thinking 20 kills each day for the next 6 days, then I've got 10 days left for the last 175.

Not that much of an investment.

I still expect to get crap from the SCs of course...

Without any ability to earn Ship or Commander elite XP, not worth it to me.

That specific task (175 destroyed ribbons) took me about 3 dedicated hours. The results of the SCs probably weren't really worth the focus by themselves but I also got 100 halloween camos and 3 commanders from the battlepoints. I had already ground the t8 camo. Probably will skip the t9 one.

I want the SC's. I'm feeling lucky. On the last task, at 81 out of 175. Should finish it over the next couple days. 

So far I've used the points for 3 days of premium time, 100 camos, and the rest I'm turning into silver. Not much interested in the strange looking perma-cams and six point commanders.

Not worth it

You are skipping on grinding ships, Free XP, Commander XP and credits for a chance at getting 100 worthless signals which you probably have by the thousands by now. 

 

In the time you waste playing Big Hunt, you can get a tier X ship and get a santa container during Xmas.

It was, but it's done now. 7000 doubloons I don't have to spend kitting out two ships I want to keep.

Not going back to this mode unless it's a stupid-easy bypass for a harder directive mission.

I think you mean back to PORT, but if it excites you that much, whatever.

I knew it.

I deduced it successfully.

There were two- and three ship divisions terrorizing solo players and random divs that were too well-meshed in their choices of consumables for it to be a coincidence. I've been noticing that since Friday night.
