Was getting Black Friday Containers a waste?

I was wondering, if it was better to buy the Santa Mega Crates instead of Black Friday containers, since there is so much more rewards to get from the Christmas Containers.

I did get more than $70 worth of in-game goods from 4 boxes which costs $26 SGD, or ~$19 usd.

My prizes:

Asashio B

Atago B

Shadow Lurker Came x20

Type 59 Camo

I didn't buy any Black Friday crates.

I did however specifically purchase Atago B for $43 AUD.

Even if there are other better deals, you got more from your $19 USD than from my $43 AUD!

I'm not complaining though. I have wanted an Atago since forever and even though I have had Takao from way back and some might say a specific Atago purchase is a waste... at least I can camo my Atago B.

I wouldn't worry. Enjoy what you have! You got luckier than some!

I found the 20xBF crates good value - 4 black ships, plus some dubs and good amount of FXP.

Huh, maybe I should'nt worry too much about better deals than what I got, I will skip out on the Santa Crates this year, though its kind of a bummer to not get different ships.

However, I will take pleasure in torturing BBs every day with A-Sassy-Hoe.

Really? So I guess thats why I never saw anyone win a tier 8 ship. Before the Santa Crates came out, I never see Monaghans in battle, now I see them every other match. I checked it out and it seems quite common.

Well it looks like a SC but it was the first of five Mega Santa Gifts that I opened.

Atago b has best concealment of 9.1km. can stealth torp..so you can get close with the help of concealment then kite.. he penetration is good with 17% default fire chance.

Atago / Takao feels really good to me.

I feel really squishy and easily deleted if I make a positioning error, but so dangerous when used well.

I don't know, but I bet he would say he only bought 200 20 and got the Mighty Mo first time round :Smile_trollface:

Im pretty sure he got all kinds of other ships too. As far as I read in reddit, it was from one of the last boxes.

Not sure he spent too much on crates, but most likely had nearly every prem but Mo. Then again, not sure it picks from a list of prems you don't have,  rather than handing out duplicate$.

Wow, I never knew there were peoplee who spent hundreds of dollars getting in-game goods. 

That's why I do research to determine the odds of the boxes. The kind youtubers who spend their cash to open boxes on youtube are very helpful.

Now I spend my days torturing BBs from 10+ km away, or if I'm really confident I will go to 7km with the A-Sassy-Hoe
