Freedom Containers

The new freedom containers in store.

 

Thought I'd get some, why not, chance of winning a ship I don't own, probably not going to get of the special missions to unlock them.

 

Buy 5 containers

 

Get TWO missions for premium ships. BOTH for the only two ships in the list I already own. Fantastic.

 

Yes I know I may have been quite lucky to get two, not sure on the frequency this time around. And yes I know now get credits

 

I don't understand why it can't just see you already have that ship and then roll the dice again.

 

Thoughts?

Why do you complain ?

WG explicitly said :

If you receive a ship that is already in your Port, you will still get a Commander and a slot, as well as credits equal to the purchase price of the ship.

 

So no you will not get a dice roll, because you already own these ship.

Yes, I did explain I knew this in the post. I'm asking what the point of that mechanic is and it was annoying and funny that I received the only two ships I already owned.

 

Also asking other people thoughts on the their containers.

They want those people, who are willing to buy these in the first place, to spend more money after getting the "wrong ship".

You can argue that more people would buy otherwise, but it is probably why they did it.

I bought just one, to open the collection. Because I'm only missing one of the 'prize' ships, and there isn't a re-roll mechanic if you get a ship you already have, I didn't see the point of buying any more...

 

One of the reasons (besides the rewards being better) I bought rather a lot (too many?) of the Xmas crates was that they *did* have a re-roll mechanic.

 

So, if the aim of the current set-up was to sell more crates, it hasn't worked on me (but I may be atypical)...

This guy got not one but two combat missions for ships in just 5 containers and dare to complain...

Be happy you get any! (ship or replacement)

 

I bought 6 containers, got 0 ship missions... GG.

Gonna use this thread for a question regarding the Dunkirk crates

Quote

"Get your hands on some exclusive crates to get goodies and have a chance to get collectibles honoring the 1940 Dunkirk Evacuation"

Since they are bloody expensive but it's the only collection I didn't complete: Is there really only a CHANCE that those crates might contain collectibles? That'd be a new low imo:Smile_ohmy:

 

Also, the "Savior of Dunkirk" mission set should've started today, right?...

You do get collectibles for Dunkirk collections, yes. 2 of them in 1 container.

 

Im glad there are no more F* Bismarck containers. They really mind-rape us with them.

If you buy 100 more, you could get missions for ships which you do not own at this moment, MAYBE.

Maybe I buy  a few for the flags, problem is that this kind of offers is 0 or full package to get the special flags at a decent prize, I am undecided, if I would not have all the ships but Monaghan I think I would have gone for the full package these premium flags would then reach a acceptable prize level, but now I am not so sure, will see how often the collection items drops also in your normal daily containers - I have got 1 in 6 so far and I think they were more frequent other collections - but it is to few yet to draw a conclusion.

Well, I consider this a lucky draw as I've got it on my 10th container... And the chance to draw best ship available is hindered by Monoghan and Cleavland probability. 

 

I actualy wanted the flags. Only Atlanta or Kidd would be nice addition as others are less usefull/OP. Considering Kidd as ultimate threat from that containers.

Has anyone gotten a ship mission from a free container?

 

The news page isn't entirely clear to me on whether this can occur; in the comparison infographic the paid version has a gold 'bonus chance' icon but I don't know if that means a higher chance for a ship mission, or any chance at all vs none. The text suggests both versions have some chance but news articles frequently contain errors and WG's mastery of English can be found wanting, so I can't take it on its word when the images leave some doubt.

In the last 2 free containers I got the Kidd Yesterday and the Atlanta Mission just now. Just for taking my Indi out for a quick spin. Had I known, that I could gain her for free... But it gained me a free Atlanta now, soooo, i'd call it a win :-)

 

Yes, you can pull the missions from free containers :-D

I didnt get any from 6 Freedom I bought. I heard many got 1-2 ships in just 5 containers. Well, this was my last time to spend money on any special containers.

 

Its true, ot at least it should be, that Freedom premium containers have higher chance for ship missions then regular American containers. But WG told us to not buy them with expectations to get ship missions.

Well, if they put some juicy premium ships in them, why I wouldn't expect them as reward, right?

26 free containers until now.

No mission (but all available ships are already in my port, besides Monaghan). Same thing as with french containers where I got no mission either.
