What does it take to get Ovenchkin item in crate?

Did anyone ever figure out if these were just totally random or if there was some condition?

Running out of days to complete collection and don't think I will make it after getting 5 crates with no Ovenchkin item in the last 2 days (could have used as duplicates to get 1 missing item). Also missed out on plenty leading up to then.

I got 5 duplicates in a row from different crates. Not much help. Think they want you to buy the fancy crates but even then some are random.

Im getting duplicates after duplicates. WG is being really shady here.....

I'd be happy to get duplicates, but often I'm not getting anything at all.

Cant complete if they don't drop items in the crates I open.

When does it end? 

Its only the merican one your talking about right? 

I didnt start the quest until last friday, do I lost a whole week of collection chances. 

I thought you can keep collecting collection items past the event as they come out of normal containers too.

Yeah, this is what I thought. Can anyone confirm if you can still collect out of normal crates after the event has ended?

Good point. I was looking at the end date of the Ovenchkin missions. Other than that date there is no mention I can see.

For past collections, a collection item was dropped with every container, as far as I remember. Not 100% sure though. Those Icehockey crates seem to drop at random. Sometimes two or three in a row, then nothing for a day or two.

If there is a pattern, I have not been able to understand it.

I guess one has to play Halloween missions for the Halloween containers, but there also seems to be no pattern. I got the animated permanent camo for Mogami after playing a few Halloween missions, that was nice.

Crysantos mentioned on his stream that the Ovechkin collection is ongoing and that you just make sure that you have selected the tab to collect those items.

Oh yes, obviously you have to set the tick for "collect".

But after that, is there a rule when a container is dropped? Like the normal containers at 2k, 12.5k and 36.5k XP earned.

Obviously these days the outlook is a lot brighter because it would appear that even if the collection drops ended they would show up in the arsenal eventually. But I want things yesterday and was concerned I only had 9 drops left while needing 10 duplicates.

For a collection that only requires 12 items it doesn't drop often

Yeah.

Only had time to get 2 crates today.

1 duplicate and 1 no drop at all.

At this drop rate my collection will be complete in... A month ...

I have 5 duplicates which means I need 3 that I don't have and can buy one.

ie I'm still 8/12.

I should get American Alex tomorrow.

I am 10/12 with 8 duplicates which means no matter what, all I need is 2 items to drop from crates.

Anyone got him already?

I bought ONE Great 8 Crate while they were in store.
