I have done all the missions and opened all the containers, but I'm 1 dupe short of the ship.

Am I supposed to shell out real $$ for the event? Should I?

I wouldnt spend real money on the OK. If you can get it for free sure, maybe in the future.

Im playing 100 games of it (currently at 21 games).

It's AP pen is terrible, absolutely terrible. 

If you look at the ships stats only ~35 players (w/ public stats) have even bothered playing it 20+ games.

The containers will be available for coal eventually, although this may take 6 months.

Elements of the collection can only be obtained from event-related containers. In Update 0.10.5, we're planning to add Always Courageous containers to the Armory. They will be available in exchange for Coal. Thus, you'll still be able to complete the collection and obtain Oklahoma if you haven't managed to do so in Update 0.9.10. The exact cost of the containers will be announced later.

You have 15 duplicates. Click on the one you’re missing and buy it with your duplicates. I think it will cost you four...

It costs 4 dupes per blank, so I need 16 dupes, but only have 15.

Or did I do my math wrong?

You will notice however that hes got 12 of 16 items, which leaves 4 left to obtain. 4x4 = 16.

Whoops... My bad. 
In that case, I think you’ll have to buy a container if/when they become available. 

However, I’m sure you’ll pick her up in a Santa crate if you roll the dice with those. 

Don’t think I’d spend a dollar for her myself.

i bought one container to finish the collection, had enough duplicates, just needed one of any. i like the ship, with a full secondary build its pretty fun and its one only real downfall is its AP penn. other than that its a pretty solid tier 5 bb.

so far 2 games, i take her out when im playing with my brother, hes grinding a bunch of tier 5s.

The secondaries are useful, the armors good, a little strong against tier 5s, and im liking the guns despite the long reload due to the accuracy they have. Its a tier 5 Minnie, if you dislike the Kansas, Florida, or Minnie you wont like her. I happen to like the Florida, and the Minnie is okay.

Further, as i mentioned i wasnt buying the crates for the Oklahoma, that was an added bonus. My goal of reaching the Thunderer however was expedited and im loving her. Money well spent.

All reviews of the Oklahoma say no, you shouldn't shell out money for the ship. When .10.5 rolls around in 6 months the grind crates will be back in the armory for probably 1k coal and you can snag the last piece then.

If you're looking to buy crates, I'd save it for Black Friday (available tomorrow) or Xmas (available in a week or two).

I spent money on it because I collect all the USN Premium BBs. Most of the other USN Premiums as well.

 

I will not say the Oklahoma is bad because she is much worse than bad.

 

She is actually insulting. She is slow. Her turret traverse is slow. Her reload is slow. When you finally get loaded and on target the shells don't pen. 

 

I am almost to the point that I think they made it this bad on purpose. This cannot be a simple mistake. Not this bad. I am very intrigued in regard to what their actual motivation could be.

 

eh, she's in the collection. I paid very little.

I think you can still get more missions to get containers by watching the official streams. They will give out a code to unlock the missions. I got far more containers than I needed. The rest got converted to credits. Try it before wasting your money on that trash ship.....and it is trash.

Depends on how much you want Okie.

I live in Oklahoma, I had other reasons to want to get her.

I bought five containers when the ship was first released. Didn’t mind a bit.

If Oklahoma is ‘bad,’ it’s more because some players are spoiled rotten by so many of the newer battleships; especially the proposed/paper battleships; and don’t much care to learn to play a battleship that doesn’t let them ‘s’plode things’ as fast as possible.

Well....the Oklahoma doesn't let you explode anything at all...let alone as fast as possible.

It is by far the worst ship I've played. Worse than Kansas.

The Oklahoma is a ship with a high skill ceiling. You have to plan carefully before moving to a flank because if that flank collapses you'll never be able to relocate. With the 40 second reload you also have to plan each shot carefully because it feels like it takes forever and a day to get your guns back in action again. Further, with the accuracy and penetration issues when your shells don't accomplish much it's a bit frustrating waiting for the reload to try again. 

With all of that being said I still sort of enjoy the ship. Her AA is not bad considering it's a tier 5 plus the secondaries are quite fun. Bottom tier isn't fun but when it is ever for a tier 5? Overall I like it for a reward ship but would never pay cash money for it.
