I just passed 1.000 games without getting a supercontainer

When supercontainers were first introduced I got 3 SCs in a decent time / games played (Maybe 1 in a 100 games or so). However, after that, I spent 1.000 games without getting one. Did they introduce them with decent chance to get them so players will get some and say "how cool feature it is" (publicity) and once that was accomplished they secretly reduced the chance to..almost zero (adding one zero somewhere in between)?

 

Admittedly, 1/3 of those times I chose "Try your luck" and the rest I chose "More consumables" etc. but I did the same in the first 3 SCs I got too, so the chances are the same.

 

I just find  the abysmal chance of getting SCs.... irritating.  ........................ One..... thousand.... games.

 

edit: I miscaclulated, it's 1.200 games!

Its just total RNG bud, Late last year, I recall getting 2 super containers in 1 weekend. Probably only 10-15 games apart. (One was a 3 mil credit and the other was just some mega consumable bundle). I havent had a single one since then.

 

its a lottery i guess.

 

Just be thankful you didnt have to pay to ''try your luck'' with the XP Containers, If you were stupid enough like me to sink £60 into the Christmas Supply crates and came out of it with nothing more then an obscene amount of unwanted camofluages and a bloody marblehead.

That's a nice achievement, you should be rewarded with a special flag or something! ^^

Well you obviously haven't received 1.000 containers yet and the probability of getting one is very low and as the player can have a maxium of 3 each day that translates to about 1.1k containers/year a player should expect to receive something than less than 10SC/year so..

What is this supercontainer you speak of ?

Some kind of legend ? a Myth ?

 

Last one I got was in November, Anno Domini 2016

A freaking two and a half months ago.

100 "try our luck", 1 super container, 250 flags.

100 "more signals and camos", much better.

But no super containers.

Just got 1000 Doubloons.

 

The issue is not what did you get from the SC, the issue is how often you get a SC.

 

WG could say "hey there's a prize of 1.000.000 doublons from SC!" - and then make the chance to get one, one in a trillion games.

I think WG just intended in doing containers as a bonus for playing battles, to be fair; they are not obliged to give us anything at all, if we don't get a SC we get camo's, flags, free XP, and consumables, something is better than nothing considering it's free

Since the introduction of super containers I've gotten six of them. Twice 5 million credits, twice 250 fire flags, once 250 of the other kind of fire flag, and once 50 Restless Fire camos (those were actually great, normal +3%/+4% and bonus 250% commander XP or something).

Just FYI I got my 9th SC today, 1k doubloons from flags and camo. Sadly no spotter plane module.

 

i got same yesterday :)

 

 

btw OP number of games dont matter. it is better to use number of days for comparison and average containers you get per day. cause you can get 1k games in a month, and that would only be 90 containers...

I got one on Monday after a long drought since November or December. I opened it and found this:

 

shot-17.02.14_01.38.56yavv.jpg

 

Now I hate supercontainers with a passion and I hope I will never get one again. Flags and camos are way more useful for me.

Those new "exclusive" modifications are so bad supercontainer content that I hope I won't ever end up getting one, like the above poster. Sorry Ze_reckless, I can imagine the feeling..

 

Well I won't be opening a single "Try Your Luck" container as long they have that c**p inside.

this is why they "changed it based on our feedback", so now we almost never get free exp (got one first time today, while previously i got one every 2 boxes), the camo are less, and flags are as many as before.  i dont use the other boxes so i am not sure how they were affected

 

so... sc nerfed, free exp nerfed, camo nerfed. dont whine, guys, wg spoil us ;)

I think I just got 4 supercontainers in 3 days and only one of them was a useless upgrade. For some reason the address sticker on two of them read stug.... something, but I opened them up happily anyway.

What a weird topic - chances of a SC are not affected by the number of games played but by the number of containers opened.

 

Someone could play 2 games per day for 1,000 days (2k games) and get 1,000 containers*.  At the same time someone playing 50 games per day would hit the same 2k games in 40 days and only earn 120 containers.

 

*this assumes they get 1 container per day.  I guess 2 wins on a 3x weekend could net 2 containers and if they really potato 2 losses in the same day they miss getting 1... but for easy maths we will assume 2 games makes getting 1x container certain.

I'm confuddled.

 

So if I keep stacking my TYL containers to see how many SC's I get to non SC's I will get less SC's? So I need to open all of these containers before collecting more containers to get SC's?
