How is your experience with the drop rate of duplicates from the boxes?

 

I have already opened 5 standard boxes and got 3 duplicates right off the bat. Of the same item. So I'm not optimistic.

WG screwing you over? Who would have thought that ?! :Smile_hiding:

 

Havent opened a single container yet, and i wont bother with the grind. If i get some, fine, but i wont bother grinding the crap out of it just for a commander i wont use anyway right now.

The more duplicates you get now, the less you get in the future.

People who pull new items now, will face increasing duplicates soon.

As I had (a lot of) Doubloons to spend and finished first Directive and got the daily bonus of today, I got 12 items and 16 duplicates to finish it quite fast.

4 items 2 duplicates. Thats fine though, my school collection has 26 items and 24 duplicates so far. ROFL.

 

Hats off to WG though in making all other rewards in the italian collection so ultimately uninteresting that even I'm now collecting the horrendous gambling lootboxes with the italian currency. They made everything so unattractive and put the only reward thats worth anything in their bloody stupid rated 7+ lootcrates. GG WG, you keep pushing that :etc_swear:. You seem to be bloody hell bent on making me not want to spend a dime on your game by pushing the worst gameindustry standard by far: pushing marketing and gambling in my leisure time.

Having a container you can only buy with another god damn limited currency which is the only way to get the collection items, that on top of that can be duplictates because why the hell not is taking the piss to a completely new level.

Hi all,

 

I got first 6 without any duplicates! :Smile_great:

 

Then, today, the 7th gave me my first duplicate... :Smile_izmena:

First six containers, no duplicates. Which was highly suprising because in the Azur Lane collection I was up to 40 duplicates before I could finish it. I guess it either cancels out or I'll just get massively unlucky soon.

To be honest, I don't think WG could be bothered to code a probability distribution that actually takes previous events into consideration.

I'm on 9 items collected, with 2 duplicates so far - that seems vaguely within range of what I've experienced in previous collections.

 

On the up-side, the duplicate conversion rate is only 1-4 this time (lately, it's tended to be 1-5), although that - of course - could be meaningless if WG have messed with the probabilities...

Six container, two duplicates.

 

And as I am unlucky with the lotteries in the game in general, I didn't manage to get the tier X filth camo either, despite collecting eleven items already. My guess is that I will not get it before the 22nd drop, so until then I will only collect limited numbers of italian tokens from the daily missions reducing the number of potential containers again. Playing with the filth only nets you two tokens per day max.

 

I hate these casino gameplays. This time WG even planned with some players not being able to complete the collection. Not due to them being unable to collect all the tokens, but for the simple reason that there might not be enough of them if you collect to many duplicates. Might effect only a few of us but it is still part of their plan for some reason I couldn't grasp (ok, I lied: they want us to purchase premium containers = spending money).

Is it me or is it almost impossible to finish the collection just by doing the event? You can buy 18 boxes from the currency from that & daily login, with 16 items to fill...

Apparently they'll be sold for coal in the future, but yeah

Total number of containers you can get (directives, daily login bonus, armory) is 38 iirc.

That is still [edited]. "Oh you did not complete the lottery collection by playing 12 hours a day? Better luck in a year or so where we will charge you more ingame currencty and time for it."

First 8 containers - 1 duplicate. 

 

Expect a higher number in the second 8. Just because that's what probability says.

 

These were 3 free containers and 5 standard ones for tokens from the Armory.

Another "standard container" for tokens - another unique collection piece.

SO... 9 containers - 8 unique pieces and 1 duplicate.

Probability says that the next one only has a 50% chance of being a unique one and 50% of being a duplicate.

So you are saying there are some containers somewhere?

Very interesting indeed.

 

To be serious I got one container and there was no duplicates in it so I am happy with my chances ;)
