Supercontainers and Steel

  I've been playing this game for 5 years with no pause and have 36k battles and I've opened a LOT of supercontainers and I've NEVER received any steel. How is that possible??? In the meantime, other players, especially during the latest celebration have opened 10 or 20 containers and have received steel many times while I opened 44 and received none. What's going on? Am I that disliked in WG that I have to sweat to get some steel while others get it for free?

It's just luck. RNG and all. 

Also steel is in supercontainers since 2 years now? So for 3 whole years it wasn't even possible to recieve steel in your case and playtime.

You just discover how SC work ?

Have low expectation on what you will get and you will alway be happy.

Fixed that for you. SCs are a mechanic to make sure your thrill to get one disappears as you receive 100 useless flags.

Same here mate. I’ve never received steel from a SC either.

I got 1500 steel once, some time ago. But looking at the sc results from the anniversary steel is a rather seldom drop. Yes it drops but almost as rare as premium ships and the larger doubloon drops.

 

i went into this anniversary with the wish of atleast one steel drop. Did not happen. When receiving a sc don’t count on either steel nor ship. If it does drop, just be happy you were lucky.

 

Doing dailies is a more reliable steel income ( although lot of work) then gambling on sc.

Clan wars is the only efficient way of obtaining steel.

 

Or wait until WG sells steel in the cash shop sgain.

Well I have above 40 K and almost max  nr of SC (if we count 3 daily container draws) + 20+34+40 in the anniversary  - I have had 2 x steel but 6 ships, total nr unknown but beyond 200 at least

Don't expect anything, be surprised when you get something. I mean, I'd also like to get steel or a ship, but hey, I got enough doubloons to basically acquire Anchorage for free and a few weeks of premium. It's not nothing. Even a hundred signals are worth something, unless it's AA signals.

Funnily (for me) I've got steel twice from SC's. The first was quite while back when I had collected almost enough steel for the Stalingrad but the next event to collect steel was a long way off. I got an SC with steel and immediately got the ship..happy days. The second time was yesterday watching a Boomfunkmc stream on twitch. For the first time I got the epic twitch drop - a SC - and opened it to discover a nice little stash of steel. Shared it with stream and was jokingly offered a swap for someones Ark Royal....never ever on Sunday matey I said!
