Dear gamers, I have asked the following question about WOWs support. He told me that they could not do anything with it and I had to share it on the forum.

 

Dear reader, 
Various players from our clan regularly receive a super container. Sometimes twice in a week. Now I notice that this can hardly be a coincidence. I get them very rarely. However, as far as I know, I am a good customer of you based on what I have already bought. But I also like a supercontainer regularly and therefore do not have to buy almost everything. I now get the feeling that I do not get them because I'm going to buy it anyway.

You will say that it is random and not tied to a account. But if one gets almost as many supercontainers in two months than the other in three years (so to speak) then there is a lot of randomness! Especially if someone else is only two months premium user (I have been almost 3 years) and he also gets a ship in his supercontainer. That feels really wrong. I have never had that.

Greating,

 

So anyone?

 

Greatz

Do u really expect someone on the Forum to tell u "yea we have prefered accounts that get more SCs?".........that would be incredible dumb from a marketing perspective, even if it was true (what we dont know!) ........but as an example for the randomness. i got 2 SC in one day once.....and then for weeks nothing....its normal

I've received 2 supercontainers within a week and both had a surveillance radar. Next week, another one.

 

Now I haven't received a supercontainer in over a month.

 

It's random and that's the end of it.

Yes, it is indeed very random.

 

But there is a secret how to get more SC than other players. Get more containers!

Someone getting all three containers every day will get on average 50% more SC than someone getting only two containers every day.

Dear owner of the casino,

 

My friend Fritz and myself are a frequent visitors of your fine establishment. I have been coming to your place for the last 3 years and Frantz became addicted 2 months ago. With deep sadness I have to inform you that I consider your rulete table no.10 completly broken. I have been placing bets in it frequently and have never won big on it. It makes me sick to the core of my soul knowing that Frantz, the luckiest bastard he is, managed to win 2 Jack Pots in a row in your £0.20 slot machine no.62.

Therefore I ask you for an explanation - DO YOU PERSONALLY THINK IT IS FAIR??

From now on I expect not only free house drinks at the table but also being able to win the Jack Pot at my beloved rulete table no.10.

 

Or else.

 

Trully yours,

Engelbert (the one with nice sideburns)

Maybe your clanmates are screwing with you, and might be lying? :cap_popcorn:

I went six months without a super container, then I got four in less than two weeks.

 

Yes, I will say that it is random.

Random drops are random.

 

I get SC from time to time, pretty much always have signals or equipment in them.

I have 10 pieces of special equipment.

 

My mate, who doesn't mind buying things with real money (will but gold to convert xp etc) doesn't get them at all. He has 1.

Instead however his supercontainer had a marblehead, and an Alabama. Which was comedy as he's the only person who grumped about receiving a £40 ship for free

I get these "Supercontainers" but the stuff in them rearly "Super",probably the best row was 2 SC in 2 days,both 14 days of prem time.

Other than that,crappy flags,modules...

Last SC got Steel,still duno what to do whit 1,5K of that.

The only ship came from some mission granted SC(De Grasse),so didnt realy belong here.

(usulay run prem-acc,and bought bunch of prem ships)

Trying to look at it from another perspective. First: We cant really know what mechanics are behind it. Thus its futile to discuss, reason or speculate about it. Second: The option would be, to have no containers at all. Conclusion: Stop beeing envy about what others get and be happy about what you get. Its completly free, nobody owns you anything and you didnt really do anything for it. Besides playing a game. Which is a spare-time-activity that should bring you joy.

You did not get his point...he knows how probability works, but is in doubt that WG mess with probability and gives some extra chance to guys who are not regular premium shop users (probably to encourage them to become ones)...and eaven i dont think WG is messing with that, on this (never ever had premium second or premium ship) account i get much more supercontainers than on other account where i have 25 premium ships and almost full time premium account.

I haven't had a SC since February... write a letter for me please...

 

Last one I had was garbage.... write that too...

 

Play your games and eventually you'll get one and right up until the point of opening you'll be expecting great things... then you'll come crashing down with disbelief.

Might explain it.. If you collect 3 containers every day your chance go up. I get plenty of super containers but I also collect 3 containers nearly every day.
