    Will old ship models be improved?

    Yep, over the years I have seen several updates which have stated that various ships have had their appearance improved improved, they do do this but it doesn't tend to get noticed as it's included in updates

    Most of the complaints on here comes down to whether or not you expect to get an uber ship, or if you are just treating it as what it is, which is a straight gamble for a bit of fun if you can afford it. To my mind there are are not many "bad" ships, won the Monaghan yesterday, and just took it out in co op , ok it's a premium Farragut, got up to the Mahan in the main tree so don't see myself playing it much, but then again as I'm belatedly grinding the US and Japanese trees after doing the German and UK lines that's true of a lot of my "good" Premiums ships including the Tier 8 Kidd and HSF Harekaze if we are talking dd's. Like a lot of people here I have a lot of ships that I don't play, I bought the Imperator Nikolai when it was first sold but I play it once in a blue moon unless I specifically want to go seal clubbing, (usually after a run of bad games ) I also play World of Warplanes and it's the same there, have won plane bundles and worked through planes in the tree which include "bad" aircraft (even according to CC reviews) which turn out to be pretty damn good, it all depends on the person and if you "get" the strength's and weaknesses, and your play style. Ok not likely to rack up many kraken's in a Monaghan, but it's not impossible either, it's just not an "I win!" ship.

    Just bought 20 Mega : 1. Aigle and 10 point captain 2. Monaghan and 10 point captain 3. 2000 Doubloons 4. 30 Leviathan flags 5. 30 Basilisk flags 6. 30 Leviathan flags 7. 30 Scylla flags 8. 2000 Doubloons 9. 20 NY streamer camo 10. 30 Basilisk flags 11. Kii and 10 point Captain 12. 30 Scylla flags 13. 20 NY Streamer camo 14. 5 Spring Sky Camo 15. 30 Ouroboros flags (Sorry thanks to Red Dwarf will probably always pronounce this "Our Rob or Ross" ). 16. 2000 Doubloons 17. 2000 Doubloons 18. 2000 Doubloons 19. 2000 Doubloons 20. 30 Hydra Flags From what I can see from here and Reddit the 20 Mega generally give 4-6 ships (unless the RNG is against you ), in my case I think the overabundance of Doubloons is probably because I have most 6-7 tier ships (dodged the Krasni Krem though! Phew!!! ) 12,000 Doubloons = 42.35 Euros Kii = 46.24 Euros So just on those 2 I guess I got my moneys worth, was looking to get Aigle from the Arsenal but guess now I can save the coal Did have a child like pleasure opening these though, which I guess is the point, not displeased with this haul

    I guess as they are getting rid of them they are going into the "rare" category anyway next year so why not?

    Yeah, actually he doesn't seem to record any difference between "Crate LIst" and Universal until you get to Mega crates, both 1.4% at gift, 5.3% at big gift, then for Mega, 6.2% Universal and 3.4% crate list so slightly weighted for Mega which I think we guessed anecdotally anyway.

    Thanks, looks like they all point to a low single figure percentage chance of a rare ship if that's what he means by "crate list": Missouri, Imperator Nikolai I, Gremyashchy, Mikhail Kutuzov, Belfast, Kamikaze, and Giulio Cesare as per the crate sale page

    From the spreadsheet quoted on the Reddit thread (complied by Westo454) rare premiums from Mega containers at 0.6896551724% https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1EfWNM_0SqSddhOBp05ZGgJQj6mHG--6Oych2R_ZW8j0/edit#gid=0 Sample size : 290

    Got 5 Mega containers 1 x super container De Grasse Tier VI with 10 point Captain 2 x 30 Red Dragon flags 2 x 20 New Year streamer camo Not disappointing you have to take these in the right spirit, that it is just a chance spin of the roulette wheel, and it's a bit of fun, De Grasse goes for 21.64 Euros atm, and the flags and camo will come in handy, Missouri or Musashi would have been nice but then so would winning the lottery lol

    None of this is much different than actual Christmas presents from friends or family, you hope for something cool or exciting, but once you tear off the paper it's just another bottle of shower gel that was on special offer, think it's great Wargaming managed to successfully recreate the Christmas experience

    I believe it's still on, certainly I still have missions and got some RN containers last night :)

    From what I know of German it could have been a whole lot worse...

    My favourites are radio and tv adds where they try to hurriedly include as many disclaimers as they can in the brief few seconds available

    How stupid do you think we are ?

    Wasn't defending it at all, good book to read "The Hidden Persuaders" by Vance Packard, read it donkey's years ago but it's become kind of a classic, lays out a lot of the tricks traditional stores pull (was written pre internet). Businesses want to make money and will always try to engage in these kind of tricks, and legislation and codes of practice only go so far, problem with the law is it needs to be very specific which leads to a lot of interpretation round the edges. After 2000 odd years "Caveat emptor" still applies.

    Yeah my eldest daughter worked in a small Co - Op for a while while she was at Uni and hated it with a vengeance, had lots of stories, my youngest daughter still works for a larger supermarket but she does the night shift so fewer morons to deal with (usually managers as you say).
