I read someplace the odds for getting a super container is about 1.5% if you pick a normal container choice but what are the odds if you pick TRY YOUR LUCK?  if anyone knows thanks

I think from data collected from a lot of people, about double that of the other containers (3%).

Normal odds are 1.5%, TYL isn't actually 3% but rather rolls 1.5% twice (or at least it used to).

I try to take one everyday, the first 2 are resource containers then a try ur luck,  i have gotten 2 recently but off of the resources containers nothing but 4 flags or 900 coal if i do try ur luck, the 900 coal isnt really a blooper im happy when i get it the flags not so much... thats why im wondering what the odds are because idk if it is worth the gamble.  lol

I just cycle through the container types; though I pick fewer signals of late, since they basically just throw them at us now.

I do the cheapest container (the first one 2000xp) as Super container, the more expensive ones as coal so I eventually WILL win a ship paid by coal.

You figure that ~1/month your TYL container will yield a super-container, and your other containers will also yield ~1/month.  So you'll average a little less than 2 super-containers per month is you continue with 2x resource+1TYL.

If TYL really is 3% then the RNG gods owe me a couple of supercontainers.  I haven't rolled a SC in a long time.

Got the guaranteed one from the daily reward thing though, which is nice.

I hope I'm wrong, but WG could use that daily check in SC once a month to "normalize" drops from xp containers.

If they did then players wouldn't go months without seeing a super-container.  If you get 3 containers a day, then in 30 days you would be guaranteed a super-container (if 1.5% for non-TYL containers.)

Scored one yesterday for the first time in maybe a year, actually won a ship, unfortunately it was the Marblehead..... Ah well I can use the 10 point Captain in my Iowa.

 

 I remember last year when the Covid pandemic was peaking and Wargaming gave everyone a week of premium time I scored about 4 Super Containers in a week.

Was that from a random container drop, or from the Daily Rewards?

Which is pretty much how it works for me. I religiously get 3 resource containers a day and have been averaging 1 SC per month. I've had as many as 3 in one month but didn't see any for a couple of months.

Runs about one every 6 weeks.

I always without fail pick resource which really means just a dab of coal. The flags and whatever else have no value.

I am excluding the SC's dropped once a month for the log in. I'll be opening that one tomorrow.
