    Did you get any British DD-missions from the containers?

    Got Acasta and Jervis from main mission earlier and thought that was it, got bored and started playing randoms and low and behold got some Royal Navy crates one of which had an Icarus mission in it, so it seems even once you finish you can still earn extra crates with missions just from playing. :)

    Sure, and looking at the poll results here it looks like the number of Tier 8 gifts are way lower than for the other levels, I'd expect that. Like I said, personally I really don't care about this as I'm not buying Royal Navy containers, but the pure chance aspect is something I think Wargaming should be careful with.

    Sure, and his motivation is different from the rest of us in that he has a channel to fill, and obviously wanted a Lightning to review, and to be fair he does seem to have been gifted a fair number of crates by supporters (incidentally didn't realise the pressure involved in running a YouTube channel, read an article in the IT press recently that some YoutTube contributors claim to being close to cracking up due to the demands of regularly putting out fresh content for successful channels). A wider question is, if it is governed by pure chance then it may well attract the attention of various Governments tax authorities who are starting to consider, in some other games, that pure chance comes under gambling legislation, and are looking to tax accordingly. Looked at logically, if a tier 8 dd costs around 35-40 Euros, you would assume that spending that amount on Containers would grant you that mission if it's the last prize left, if it is pure chance and someone spends 100 for just flags and Sovereigns, it might be construed by the authorities as gambling. I have no dog in this fight, I'm happy with what I got, and I quite like grinding for new ships so I will get the Lightning that way, but just saying it seems a bit unfair on people spending on crates if they only get mundane stuff in return.

    Just did the missions, didn't buy any crates, got Acasta and Jervis. Looking on YouTube it seems very variable whether you get missions or not from containers, saw one video where it was claimed by Notser after getting 3 special missions , he went through 180 containers with no further missions, therefore I'd think carefully before buying any. That contributor was told by Wargaming the missions are awarded purely by RNG, theres no weighting to give you a mission after so many container opens, it's pure chance.

    T-61, what time today (Friday 10th) will it be credited?

    If my Japanese ships can be commanded by excitable manga girls, I don't think a Dutch captain is that hard a thing for Wargaming to produce lol, but the best would be a Dutch line

    Agreed doing a separate Dutch line would absolutely be the best outcome, hopefully with the recent news article on the Dutch Navy, it's in the works, I know a few people you'd make very happy

    @MrConway As a Brit working and living in the Netherlands I know a number of guys in my office who are thinking of buying the T-61 purely because it at least started out Dutch, have Wargaming given any thought to doing a Dutch flag as a special, in the absence of a proper Dutch line? (should probably go with the modern flag as some of the wartime ones have unfortunate associations with the Nazi's as I understand it ) :) I'm thinking like how the Commonwealth ships can have the blue commonwealth flag or the White Ensign

    My usual response "Hey being poor is nothing to be ashamed of, I was once poor like you, then I got a job!" Worst case was when I got the Hood with the flag, Hood really seems to bring out the worst in players, still get German BB's on same team firing my way :)

    Just played first game in it (Co Op), it's not bad, like the torps and guns (with AP, HE is a bit meh)

    No it gets credited automatically with the ship Yep, guess we are all happy now, but I'm guessing in a couple of weeks time it will just be a fairly average DD with good guns once the hype dies down

    This would be true if this was developed in a technical area, this seems to me to smell's of something sales/marketing led, i.e. "ok lets see if this flies, and if it does we'll get it done properly next time " (developer in earshot slowly begins banging their head on their desk) :)

    Not too stressed, I wanted a couple of Tier 8 premiums so I would have spent the cash anyway, the one observation I'd make is that feedback for this event was pretty poorly handled, you push a button on an event page and that's it, no indication of where you are in getting to the target, just trust really, and no firm indication if all kinds of spending of doubloons within the game counted (sure I guess you could infer that from the event page text but it would have been nice to see it clearly stated). As this all comes down to an SQL query looks like this was a low cost fundraiser :)
