i dont really care much about these containers as im not a weeb, but even so, these containers are £7.70 which is nearly double what the christmas containers were and they had the chance to get a ship in. all you can get from these are 15 special flags and a chance of a weeb commander. the pricing for containers is going too far. @MrConway @Crysantos i dont know if this is an error in pricing but if its not then WG need to sort this out before they have the same problems EA did.

They are exploiting people who swap their wives for waifus. But really, this does take it to another level.

 

On the other hand waifus seem cheaper than real wives if they £7.70 each:cap_haloween:

there is always a commander included, so it is a different situation. And prices for similar 10 points captains were in the same region in the past...

the Dasha captains were 13€ (including 14 days of premium), so 9€ for a weeb captain, camos and special signals is already significant less for a better content. Thn only drawback is that you cannot chose which captain you get...

If people keep buying gambling boxes then WG will keep selling them.

 

If people keep buying them in quantity then WG will keep putting up the prices.

 

I think I see a way out of this problem.

I'm with @xxNihilanxx here, as long as ppl keep buying them, WG can afford to increase the prices. When their revenu starts dropping from the containers they might adjust the prices

It is actually. Get twice the content for instance and it's not weird at all to see the price also double.

I kinda agree with you here. If people keep buying, WG will keep selling.

 

And afaicu, all these captains have individual unique voices, which is a LOT more work compared to just cloning an existing cap and swapping the captain's image to an anime chick.

Wows isn't a very large game when looking at how many players it has and running or using a sound studio is probably also not cheap.

 

But I'd still wish the captains in wows had any subtitles as I can't understand what some captains say, like the French one when doing a lot of damage with main guns sais something along the lines of PANTALIA! or something. But I have no idea which words these are as my French is not up to par with standard France French quality :Smile_hiding:

Exactly. Stop buying these boxes for for sanity's sake!! It's a gambling scam! 

 

If we want this game to change for the better then we need to stop spending money on these bloody lootcrates!!!

It is not, FOR YOU.

But when looking at it from a neutral perspective, it is a pretty standard price. What mostly changed was the amount inside the lootbox and the price of the lootbox, like someone else already explained on the pricing of other caps like Dasha.

Not being able to choose which captain is a huge dealbreaker for me, especially since you can get duplicates and last time you could just buy them directly.
What a bs event.

I thought that that was the entire point in selling unique commanders, that you get the ones you want?

And here I thought that those "unique" commanders were worth something because of the specialization they supposed to have sharing ships names .
But I did misunderstood .... my bad.
Just normal 10-points commanders after the "azur turn off"
And you just must turn those voice-overs off....

Would've been worth the time if they had some special % for the ship they named after.....

The bundle includes seven classic Azur Lane Commanders: Avrora, Admiral Hipper, Belfast, Cleveland, Enterprise, Hood, and Nelson. All these Commanders are heroines of the popular Azur Lane mobile game. Each Azur Lane Commander comes with a specialization for the ship that they share their name with, and 10 skill points. Please note: you can have an unlimited number of identical Azur Lane Commanders.

This is not so bad since you're guaranteed to get a 10pt commander, which had been sold for higher price. Thought you can get duplicate, so one could still be screwed if the goal is to 'catch them all'.

I found it kinda weird that one could get duplicates of these commanders, though personally I don't find this as big a deal. But indeed, if you want all of them, you got a problem.

You are what you say I am.

I never planned to buy any of these containers. I was merely stating the facts, but you don't see because you're stubborn. Everyone who doesn't agree with you or your sentiment, is just stoopad! :Smile_sad:

Dunno if its been said but you can bypass the lootboxes in some ways.

 

Heres the reddit post. You dont get a 10pt commander but if you want yer waifu this is the best option. 

 

And you can avoid wargamings scummy business tactics as well.

 

 

although if you want the commandrs then be ready for gambling.
