Try Your Luck Container

I have NEVER won anything more than a couple of flags (conservatively five hundred attempts). This is a complete farce. WG should come clean on how many if any "try your luck" containers ever produce anything more than "next to nothing "

I used to try for Super Container on the first crate of each day.

I almost never do now since resource containers.

The small chance of getting something I want from the small chance that I will get a SC seems like a very very small chance.

Compared to the smaller, yet guaranteed drops from a resource crate, the gamble simply doesn't seem worth it.

I have a high chance of coal or FXP that I can decide how and where to spend.

Gambling is a tax on the statistically illiterate at the best of times, but when you don't even know the odds....?

Caveat emptor.

If i m not mistaken, the chances obtain a SC is around 0.05%, TYL will double chance so is 0.1%. I used to take TYL everyday and yes i got 3 SC from TYL, but that takes 6 months. 

 

Now i realise Resources Container is a better option, consider there are many ships are purchasable with coal, and Resource guaranteed 400 coals per box (You may get 1200 coals if RNG says yes). I would rather take Resource for long term benefits.

Before the addition of Arsenal and Coal, I used to pick TYL all the times. As the others have said, Resource containers are more certain and the rewards are known.

IIRC, my chance was about 1 out of 50~60 TYL (or 1 out of 80~90). Never got any ship. Signal flags after signal flags...

A few Wyverns fell out. Better than 1,000,000 Hotel Yankees I guess. :Smile_izmena:

The way WG RNG seems to work, will probably also get another today.

Really wish that the T10 perma camos were discounted as well. Even if it is only 15% instead of the 50% the other tiers get when these discounts are on. 

T10 really sometimes feels like an end game, for players that don't play competitively, as WG doesn't show much love to those players who want to actually use the ships they have worked so hard for. I like all my T10s. I enjoy the varied gameplay of different classes of ship and different nations. I was ok with doing it as I want to be able to use my ships, but I had to pay full price for all my perma camos. All 18 of them :cap_fainting:

 

So you think you have the detonation powers of @drakon233 eh? Seriously he can just look at another player and they detonate. Go on wish me a detonation all you like :Smile_trollface:

Since resource containers came out it's the only one I've picked (apart from a couple of mis-clicks)

Got 3 supercontainers.... each with nothing super in them [useless flags 😞  ]

I think i've only had 1 from a TYL container before that

Super containers are pointless, especially when you already have almost all the premium ships. Just don't bother wasting your xp on them.

Agreed. I used to always take TYL - and probably got 15-30 SCs over the year or two (including a few ships before they nerfed them hard) . . . but the the 2018 ones were all 100 X flag . . . not worth it. 

Now I go for resources every time. 

 

I can see why they don't discount the T10 premium cammos they just break the economy. I've bought a bunch for my T10s and credits haven't been an issue since. Think I have about 200 million or so now and nothing to spend it on.
