Depends on how lucky your are with the roll. It's just that. Luck.

 

Iirc with the american cruiser collection I was at 140 duplicates or so before getting the final item.

Just curious: why not just cash in the duplicates?

Then I have a question too, why wait with exchanging when can get a full collection, you get something for the duplicates?

You get 15k credits per duplicate (and with some collections you also lose the ability to collect more duplicates once complete).  So essentially, by waiting to get the last collectable, you gain a minimum of 75k. It's not much, but hey, it's free.

 

Btw just to clarify my earlier guess, I'm going with @KeeperOfTheDungeon getting a further 10 duplicates and getting the one you need on the 11th item :-)

I'm glad I don't have credit issues.  Missing out on finishing just to try and net 75k credits would depress me when day after day after day it is just duplicates.  I spend my duplicates as soon as I have enough to complete.

I wait until the number of duplicates matches the number of collectables (?) that I can redeem the duplicates for matches the full collection.

 

If you start trading in the duplicates before then you may get the item you traded the duplicates for.

Well, at 11 in a row you'd have a better than 50% chance for the 11th to be the last unique. That, of course, would include any duplicates you already got after getting the 15th unique

At 22 you have better than 75% chance, at 36 it's better than 90%, at 72 it's better than 99% and at 118 it's practically 100% chance.

 

So, knowing the RNG of this game... 118 :Smile_trollface:

I'm now in the same situation as you.

Given that the game is so full of it, I think they should just rename Word of Warships to "Frustration on Steroids".

Well, with 15/16 collected, the chance that the next draw is going to be a unique is 6,25%

The chance of getting a unique in the next 10 draws is roughly 47,55%

And, best part... after you drew these 6 you mentioned in the latter posts, the chance that the NEXT 10 will give you a unique is STILL only 47,55% :Smile_trollface:

Probability works in trollish ways :Smile-_tongue:

Btw does the AL collection have duplicates?  

 

Im getting something from each daily container and none of them have been duped so far. 

 

Im guessing the size of the collection made WG make it easier?

The duplicate mark is not showing properly on duplicate drops for AL. But the duplicates a re there.

See it as free credits that you earn once you finish the collection.

Highest amount of credits I received by not turning in duplicates for the last missing one was about 180 duplicates for the USN cruiser collection. BAM! Couple million credits added :Smile_coin:

Since there are that many items, duplicates are rare this early, but I already got one.

11 items collected and 3 duplicates. So, yes.

Ah ok, but is it still 100% chance of a piece in each box?
