Soviet Era Crates (BB Early Access Chance)

Has anyone gotten a mission from the regular "Allowance Token" crates? Or is this another money grab from those that buy the doubloon ones?

I've spent all my tokens on these crates, probably opened 30 or more with no mission...

I got 2 missions from around 10-12 crates. Kind of lost count.

They quite interesting yet powerful, the play style is very different from other nations BB, that need a few games to get used to. Overall, very enjoyable experience playing them 🙂

Bought 7 and got the Vladivostok and Pyotr Velikiy  (well technically didn't.  Doubs were free).

You can only get the Russian crates in the armory for doubloons.

I got my missions from crates in armory that cost 30xVictory coins. Not those doubloons one, but I consider myself very lucky on this.

Wrong. There are "Soviet Era containers" available for both doubloons and Allowance tokens. The doubloon ones give a "higher chance of a special mission".

As I said, I've opened more than 30 of the allowance token ones for, zip. So, I say it's a money grab. NP, wasn't that interested in them anyway and I'm not opening my wallet to gamble on any. I was just curious as to whether anyone actually got one from them.

I opened 7 of those, I only got coal and some flags. I think Id rather save those tokens for Lazo...

I think that would be the wise choice.

What?

You do understand there are two types of Soviet Era crates, right? Those for doubloons, those for allowance tokens. BOTH are available in the armory...

They are just a floating citadels. Angling and kiting away is the only way to mitigate damages I think. But overall, the guns are so good.

I spent 5k gold to buy crates, got 1x sinop.

From the in game reward free crates I've never had a free ship from any of the events, so don't beleib you can get them, until I do.

Change my mind WG!.

Sinop is great mian guns secondaries set fires are very accurate, its HUGE GLARING weakness is the AA though rated at 57 is only works from 3kms or so, same for its fighter plane defense, so is absolutely useless versus cv planes, and even worse when there are 2x cv in the battle, because word already out amongst cv players, hit the sinop!.

 

Yesterday I also had a tier 5 USN BB shave off over 30k damage in one salvo, take that as you will.
