Comrades.

 

I have been on holiday for the past 3 weeks - hurray - and got about 1 day of playtime done, in between different trips. My progress on the Dunkirk mission is bad. I got it done once with 5 stars. But you need a good amount of crates to get the special RN commander (with the 30% smoke screen buff and the +5% on JOAT). I really want that captain. And the mission seems to end tomorrow.

 

1. Do you think I can make up the lost time in 1 day?

2. I suppose 1 is impossible, so is it worth it to buy containers and how many would I need?

As  Evil4Zerggin on reddit calculated, you will most likely need 14 containers. You can get one today, but the rest you must buy.

1. I would say NO is the correct answer :)

2. It depends on how much money you could and are willing to spend. IMO you'll need 20+ of crates. In my case I've got first 11 items easily in missions, then getting duplicates only, so that it took me 6 crates to get 11 items directly + 5 items from duplicate-exchange (5-for-1), i.e. to get all 16 pieces I needed at least 18 crates :)

not without real money since you can earn only 1 container (with 2 items) per day (2 in case you have the Gallant)

OK, 1 container per day only. That's the missing piece of the puzzle.

 

Thanks all, seems like I will have to shell out money for the 25 pack of crates. That should do it unless I'm really unlucky. €50 is quite a lot though.

You will need more than 25 (unless you get REAL lucky)

Would really depend on whether you are going to make a WoWS career out of RN cruisers, where this chap's perks stack.  Otherwise... let it go.

That being said you get one super duper flag with each crate.

Yeah and I *think* you get batches of 3 flags in those real money containers. If you get a lucky draw even 5

7 + 7 (14) signal flags per large box.

Small chance to get 15 + 15 (30) signal flags instead.

The special flags on the other hand are really worth it.

 

I think you will be better off, buying doubloons and converting them 1:35, than using the xp flags.

Depends on what you wanna do. :cap_tea:

 

Converting XP to skip e.g. the Izumo is understandable. 

Using flags to push a captain to 19 on a ship you really like may be the better investment as it you can enjoy it.
