Well... opened for now 3 containers... 18 items... and got the SAME 3 medal... Know the chances are 1/324 (not so incredibly low) but alas... maybe it´s a coincidence that I just spend money on doubloons to progress on the shipyard?

Cmon... Heard that WG needed to grab money with people buying italian containers but... I don´t believe in coincidences. 

Sorry, needed to complain...

And I can still complain... 8 containers... 4 duplicates of 18 items possible. I'm now lazy to calculate chances, but pretty sure they are very low... Still maintaining my opinion over this not rigged :Smile_trollface:

Where did you get the extra 3 containers? Only 5 have been obtainable through the event missions week 1 that I have seen so far? What have I missed?

No dups for me. At least not yet...

Guessing I'm going to need to buy containers in the armory when they eventually become available.

Don't remember for sure, probably twitch rewards and missions. For sure I haven't bought any

I never understood the rage over buying containers, the drop rate for ships is horrible, but nobody makes anyone buy the containers, having said that I have bought some of the Black Friday ones and gotten extremely lucky with them, 4 ships and 500 doubloons out of 10 containers.

I'm raging about the collection, theoretically for free, just requires playing (I play a lot) and gives a second flag for italian ships... Buying containers is optional and cannot complain now (since WG made public the drop rates) but it looks like to complete this collection WG may force to buy containers to complete, due to unrealistic duplicate drops... or I'm very unlucky. Hey, it's for free, but the second flag is really interesting.

I think there are supposed to be enough containers given out over the course of the Update to make it very likely the collection should be completed just through normal play.  There will also be some available for Community Tokens if more are needed, though I don't have an ETA on that.

I have warships open at the moment and it says there are 8624 people on line.

8624 / 324 = 26.6172839506 ,

or to say it another way, 26 of the people currently online would, without rigging, open 3 containers and get the same 3 medal.

It's going to happen to somebody and you are somebody :Smile_honoring:

Wait ?!?

You think you are being *punished* for spending money on the game?

I have got 7 crates already, 2 duplicated.

Looking all right at the moment, but I think I will need to use community token to finish the collection early cause it is getting more likely to get duplicated later .

Edit: Finished the second week mission, a total of 12 crate, 7 unique +5 duplicated

Pretty sure that WG has stated that these containers will also eventually be available for coal. I plan to do all the missions and see where I am at in the end.

From what I recall its possible to get 24 containers just from playing and daily free deliveries. There are 18 items needed, with duplicates needing 4 to buy one empty item.

Based on that Its possible to have a total of 16 unique drops and 8 duplicates and still complete the collection without any additional containers. 

So far I have gotten 4 unique and 1 duplicate, though duplicate odds increase with fewer remaining open spots. 

All that said, ill be either completing it or waiting to do so with coal at some future time.

I open containers. Seems okay. Spaghetti DDs. Nothing beats getting the wet noodle to the stern.

Pasta the afta creama , Eh! LOL

Although, it never hurts to sacrifice a pizza to a picture of Victor Mature, Sylvester Stallone, Father Guido Sarducci, and maybe Lou Ferrigno.

Although, if you forget to sacrifice a pizza to Lou, he will get angry, turn green, and smash your PC.

I doubt it's intentional rigging...

More likely that the Random Number Generator that they use stinks or is implemented improperly... such as reseeded at appropriate times.

I've seen occurrences of astronomically low odd events having to do with fire chances happen that make the RNG used look really suspect.... no reason not to think that wouldn't extend to other mechanics.

Nope, would not even need a list if everyone was on it.

Whole game is rigged like a casino to get you to part with your money.  Double charging to move captain to new ship and retrain is good example.  Meh'r = on knees for WG.

My first container had the 135mm/45 Model 1938 on a Model 1938 mount.  The next container had the exact same piece and my 5th had the same as well.  Not the best luck to be sure and while highly unlike to happen, there's a chance that it could and so it did.   

Saw something similar in an giveaway during a recent online comic book sale.  They had a random number generator set up on their phone.  They rolled it 3 times for each giveaway with the 3rd number being the draw number.  43 people had a chance at one of 5 giveaways and yet the same number for the same person was drawn 4 different times.  Fortunately there was a "one giveaway per customer" rule but odd stuff can and does happen!

Anyway, I'm not buying into the rigged outcome thought.  But it would be interesting to see/know what duplicates are popping up for those who get them.

That koala looks suspicious. Like he tipped a cow and laughed about it. Sure, they look lazy. But they see a cow sleeping standing up and they can't resist.

Good god - you know the dups can be used to get the item right?  God please tell me you know this...  And why do people think that this type of thing (dups) can happen this often?  Statistically it can VERY well happen and DOES happen as you have proven (and others have proven that everyone does not get dups and no - WG does not care enough about you to JUST rig YOUR rewards).
