Instead of starting 47 separate threads when you don't get a ship from your $94.00 worth of Santa Crates, I created a one-stop convenient place for you to express your anger, dissatisfaction, intent to quit or never spend another dime, etc.  As an added bonus, you might have many dozens of players posting their ire here as well, so you can wallow in each other's misery.

You know you are gambling and may not get a ship when you buy these things.  Yet, you bought them anyway, didn't get a ship, and now your nether regions are chaffed about it.  Let the anger FLOW through you!  That is part of the healing process!

Was looking for a thread like this so I could say... "LET THE SANTA CRATE WHINEAGE BEGIN!", lol.

 

Edit: I did buy 4 of the Huge crates, but didn't get a ship, which I am fine with. I am happy to get the 60 special signal flags so I can go through the Minnesota faster. :Smile_great:

Well I say, ships may come and go, but one can never have too many Frosty Fir Tree camos   -  its like having an endless supply of ugly Christmas sweaters -  all it needs is some eggnog & Johnny Mathis singing Christmas Carols & its like 2005 all over again.

20 medium crates and picked up 3 ships (Makarov, Orkan and Siliwange) in the first five! The rest were camo, flags & 2K in dubs.

Not a bad way to start. Still looking for the Benham...

Why would that be?  If you pull a ship you already have, it subs in a super container that has a ship from the list, that you don't have.  As long as you don't have ALL the ships that can drop, IF a ship drops, you are going to get one you don't have.

So if you have a lot of ships, it's a good way to fill in those last missing ones.

I saw your post in the "Paid but no crates arrived" thread. I note here that others have bought and received crates and opened them, so I think your guess may be correct.

Going to wait until this evening when the mad rush is mostly over. I have about 14 months of premium time left, so this year I'm probably going to skip the special deal on premium time, buy myself 20 mediums and see how many ugly camos I can get. :Smile_veryhappy:

I used to buy a few for me and my mates as a bit of fun and supporting a f2p game but have refused last year and this year as I feel WG has been taking a wrong direction with the state of the game. If things improve I would start buying them again but right now WG seems bent on trying to break the game so why should I support that.

On the flip side, we should only have 1 thread for people to post their results.

20 Megas, pulled a Duca D'Aosta, Ochakov and last but definitely not least a Kutozov. Plus 25k coal and 2k dubs, flags and camos also. Not a bad haul

Its math based on precedent.

If anything, this years Santa event maybe on the stingy side.. Mainly because of the production push backs.

I don't think we have any indication that this year's crates are any better or worse than previous years. 

Someone already bought a bunch (40 I think) and got a whole mess of ships from it.  Now that doesn't mean anything one way or the other, but let's not start rumors of things we don't actually know.

The crates "just" appeared in the shop.  We have no math, on anything.

Its math not rumors. This event is meant for those with not a lot of ships in their ports... That is the purpose of the Santa event... Some will get lucky while others will not, one of the factors have always been

  • How many ships you have in port.

All I am saying, due to cutbacks in production this year. Promotions have been on the stingy side...

  • No Thanksgiving fleet bundles this year
  • Years and Christmas have been shortened.

Projects have been pushed back a whole year...

This event was never meant for those with a lot ships... Those who are new and want random ships, the Santa Event is the perfect event for them.

No, it is not.

I am the example that you are talking about. In fact I have most of the ships that can possibly drop out of these crates.

I am going to buy some crates though because the way they work, if a ship drops, I am going to get one of the few that I don't have.  I am 100%, guaranteed to get one of them at that point. The odds that I am going to get one of the ones that I want, are actually greatly increased, BECAUSE I have a lot of the ships already.

The rest of your post has absolutely nothing to do with the odds on the Santa crates this year being any different than previous years and is based on your opinion.  We don't know yet.
