I have never had luck like this with containers and such.

I bought all 11 of the sequential things since I had enough doubloons already and I wanted the 5000 coal. That cost 2750 doubloons.

One of the rewards is 250 doubloons. So it really only costs 2500 for all 11.

First container I opened was the Tirpitz black which comes with a mission for 2500 doubloons with the original Tirpitz (which I have).

I have the original Jean Bart and I keep looking at the special mission which gives 2500 doubloons and 25000 coal. I just didn't want to spend $67 on a copy of a ship I already have. Decided against it.

I bought 1 2020 crate and opened it.

Jean Bart Black inside.

So from the purchase of the 11 sequentials I got all my gold back and 5000 coal (and some other crap).

And from the 5 dollar container I get 2500 gold and 25000 coal.

so for 5 bucks I got 30k coal and 2500 gold profit (and some flags etc and two black ships that I don't care about).

 

EDIT: Well, it seems most of you are having the type of luck that I have always had in the past. I guess it was just my turn to be lucky.

No.

Someone always gets lucky.

Not luck. Pure crate opening skill!

I got at most 12k fxp from those containers. The rest were camos.

My past experiences have been similar.

No doubs, no ships... just 84 Shadow Lurker camos, 18000 Free XP, and 24 hours of premium time... oh yeah some signal flags... 

Was a waste of doubloons.

There's always someone who gets great luck.  WG hopes they'll crow about it and entice others to try to repeat it.  

But I haven't seen anything that indicates my crate RNG has changed.  It's always been terrible.

Like a [edited]idiot, I thought "maybe this time will be different from all the other times you purchased random crapfrom this company!".

I got camo. Every random thing that included camo, that's what I got.

I guess this is the time I learn my lesson, after all...

No ships.

Two of the crates has 1250 doubloons, so it only cost me 250 total for a number of camos and a little premium time, plus the coal. 

Overall I'm ok with this.  But only because i was lucky enough to get 2500 doubloons out of it.

Why don’t you use camos?  I think they are ridiculously expensive, so I would never buy camos, but if you already have them, why not use them?

No containers .... so the way I see it, that's a 2,500 Doubloon win.

Could buying them all have been better? Yes

Could buying them all have been worse? Yes with salt on top

edit: Oh, and grats!  I'm happy to see you had some really good luck.

Must be my treasure hunting and treasure hoarding nature in videogames. If I can't easily replace something I won't use it.

It's the main reason why I can't play games like EVE or any PvP game where you can lose your ship or gear.

Interesting,  I had no idea it was randomised for every individual player.

I see your listing and can safely assume the bundles are listed in order.  Because I see your 10th bundle is 24hrs Prem,  but I see mine specifically says 7 DAYS.

 

So the value of those bundles will depend on what is pre-rolled, correct?

Just looking at it face value,  7 DAYS Prem,  costs 1250 dubs ingame.  And that makes it easier for some to go for it,  but NOT if it isn't in your bundle.

 

So the lesson is always read the fine print.  :cap_horn:

Well that’s one way of looking at it!  Which camo have you hoarded the most?  How many do you have?

I have 110 Team Fire, 108 Shadow Lurker, 107 Ocean Soul, 100 For Meritorious Service, 147 Type 5, and much smaller amounts of a lot of other camo.

bought the doubloon bundles and i got

 

1) 20x shadow lurker
2) 20x shadow lurker
3) 35k free xp
4) 2x type 59
5) 6k free xp
6) 5x leviathan
7) 5x Scylla
8) 4x shadow lurker
9) 4x shadow lurker
10) 4x shadow lurker
11) 2x type 59

wasn't suspired figured my odds of pulling anything were next to none as my luck is always good during Christmas time. But for 13.86 CAD I did get 41k in free xp which when converted would be worth around 1640 doubloons so not bad i guess. The camos since I have a ton of them already i gucess ill be using them. Wont be buying anything else until Christmas crates come out which hopefully rng does well. I still think 2016 or was it 2017 was the best year for buying crates.

 

edit : oh and my bundle included a week of premium time and 1.5m credits
