Just out of curiosity.

Got myself a NC in the last standard container, and im curious how likely they were to drop anything?

NC wasnt even that bad for me, since i was at Colorado anyway and i didnt want to play that :cap_haloween:

I've completed the mission chain and bought 6 premium containers and did not get one bonus mission.

I bought 24 in total and......... got nothing special out of it.

 

My opinion? These containers are overpriced and therefore totally not worth it.

Probably too early for a poll

 

Not really, it was a simple mission chain, I completed it in a day or so.

I received the North Carolina mission so now I don't need to suffer the New Mexico and Colorado.

Oh, and I'm not even finished with the mission chain :Smile_trollface:.

 

EDIT: Did not buy any premium versions either (are they not terrible value-wise?).

Received the containers from the mission chain and haven't bought any premium ones. Haven't received anything worth mentioning from the containers.

Didn't buy any and had a Chapayev mission drop from first container.  This was two days after I had bought a Chapayev, but I got @10 million credits instead when I completed the mission, which paid for the Montana I had been grinding credits for.  So all round I'm a happy guy, but I won't be buying any.

 

Would be interested to see if more than one mission drops for other people from premium or ingame boxes.

I think I got a chappy... which is so completely irrelevant for me that I'm not even sure anymore...

I bought rather fewer of these things than I might normally - these containers 'feel' rather over-priced compared to more usual ones, not to mention distinctly lacking in the rewards department.

 

That said, I did get the Chapy mission on my tenth and final bought container (zilch in the freebies), which cheered me up somewhat, as I rather fancied her and am only on the T6 in the grind.

Got nothing from my containers. Abruzzi would have been the only interesting drop, but nope.

I didn't buy any "Premium" container and I got 0 "Personal Bonus Missions" from regular containers thus far...

Same here and I'm normally a "container whale", but these are the worst "value for money" containers WG have released so far where you get around 50% less "rewards" for the same price compared to the earlier containers like Bismarck etc.

Bought 1, cried after having spent so much for a single container and then had a little pep talk with myself in the mirror. Got nothing and ok with that because the loss goes down to experience. Never was a good gambler.

I usually buy some containers (after getting a ship every four to five containers last Christmas) but these are way over priced so won't be bothering. For the price of 12 I can get 10000 doubloons and 11250000 credits.

In "normal" marketing sth like 3/4 of players who got all "free' containers should have received a "free" tech tree ship (NCal or Chapa) mission.
This cost WG nothing and ppl like to feel like a lottery-winner.

But this is CCCP comapany so WeeGee may not apply capitalist marketing rule and choose to distribute onions like Stalin did. One onion for one village.

The containers are cash grab at it's finest. It's the same as the RN containers... why they even divided them in "standart" and "premium"... what is the next step? "Standart" premium ships/time and "Premium" premium ships/time (with improved RNG???)?

I'd like to expand on your point.

A single box costs 4.5€, and contains 10x Victorious camo, 10x special signal, 1x collection piece. There is a chance for a silver ship, a premium ship, a T8 permanent camo, or a captain in every box.

For 4.5€ you could instead buy exactly 1058 doubloons.

 

The container items are not equal to 1058 doubloons in value. 10x each of camos and special signals can be  bought for less, especially signals as they are part of almost every premium box in the shop.

It was 50 oil for the clan...

True. With the new clan base many clans are looking for extra oil.

Escalation of commitment works in favor of WG. People keep buying boxes to get a ship they could buy for less from the shop or in the case of NC and Chapa fXP with doubloon conversion.

I just noticed that the ship you receive comes with pre-purchased and pre-researched modules. I must say, this deal is getting better all the time :Smile_trollface:.
