Progress: zero.

This  works only if you already had the original Scharnhorst, reward is compensation for already having the scharnhorst.

So people get a free ship and expect a... stupid? mission to grant them another 2500 doubloons... why wouldnt WG give them out directly then?

Here we go again. Every year same thread :))))

Ah, it's that time again, is it? In a similar way to that in which the druids of old marked the winter solstice, we mark the passing of another year with the arrival of the latest crop of folk who didn't read WG's cunningly worded communications carefully enough...

 

No doubt, we'll get a *lot* more when the actual crates go on sale (end of next week, presumably).

Most likely; I got one too, although they're last year's version (so no chance of this year's ships) - mine had a Sims B in it, so the mission I got was 1,500 doubloons (on top of 2,500 for having Sims B already).

How do you think WG makes its money?

 

Gives Scharnhorst-B and offers a mission for Scharnhorst which you think you've finished only to find you need the original Scharnhorst.. so you go buy her.

so BF crates are bugged again?

I'm not sure, but I recall last year's being set such that you couldn't get the same ship (and mission) twice; if you had all the ships already, you got one of the other rewards.

that's how containers should work afaik

That's why I was a bit surprised when the "you lucky, lucky, b*stard!" won-a-ship graphic turned up - I already had Sims B from the (I think) original set of Black Friday things a couple of years ago...

Pretty standard when you win the B version in a crate.   
 

you got a mission for doubloons but need the regular version to complete.

I had something similar with a task involving amongst others the Asasshio. My Asasshio B did not qualify. It wasn't some sort of compensation thing either. I figured WG simply forgot to include the B ships.

Most of the time for regular missions, if the 'original' is included, they also include the 'B' version in missions. The mission for doubloons - if you already have the 'non-B' ship is a notable exception, and I saw it as somewhat of a compensation for those who have had the original in port.

I believe it's deliberate: if you already have the vanilla version of a ship, there is - for many - a rather reduced urge to buy a black version of the same thing; the doubloons missions are sweeteners to encourage existing owners to get the black version of a ship on top of the vanilla one they already own.

 

It's effectively a rather convoluted variant on a standard BOGO promotion...

I'm sure OP had enough answers about "having the original ship to complete the black mission"
