Today new containers arrived - I was curious what is inside, so bought 5.

Beside 2 badges for the North-cape-collection in each, I got:

  • 2x 3 Frosty-Camo
  • 50 XP-flags
  • 25 Credit-flags
  • a Christmas-container
     

Small sample size, still looking very rewarding for 1 € per box.

not a suprise, it was announced already before the campaigns started that those containers will also become available in the shop. Of course the content is the same as in the containers you get ingame for the missions of the campaigns

I guess this container was the reward for the completion of one sub-set of the collection...

You'd be guessing correctly.

Omfg, can they stop releasing Casino stuff and start releasing the Roma??? 

Is that because you want to pay £100 for that beer can anime skin?

If they released a fun DD with such a strong bonus camo, I would even think about it, if the deal had nice freebies. 

 

But as a BB I got my Mo.

Completed the collection a while ago, so no need to buy these containers.

But while we're talking about stuff from the shop: where is the T61 WG?

Yeah ... also this.

 

I blame my ineptitude in missing the last Kamikaze sale, something I regret every time I'm torped by one. :Smile_sad:

Handy guide to aquire the Kamikaze:

 

Buy xmas containers, use the gold to buy every premium there is.

Buy more xmas containers and hope that it drops in one of them, as chances are good that the game will give you the premiums you do not have. Profit (with an loss of real money tho^^).

I've already bought far more tanks boxes than I should have trying to get a Type 59 and held off buying Santa boxes because of my lack of luck ... out of the .. ahem .. "few" boxes I've bought so far I've only won the Mutsu with a 10-point captain so I think I should count myself lucky for that and resist the urge. Besides, I'll need all my doubloons to convert whatever free xp I'm short by in order to get a Missouri before that's removed from the tech tree.

 

I think my best bet for a Kamikaze is to hope that there'll be another round of the Fire & Water thing last year that had the opportunity to get one (if you did nothing but play the game 24/7 for a couple of weeks). I'd be prepared to put in the effort for a Kami.

Depending on how many of the available premiums you're yet to receive, the chances of getting it to drop are actually pretty good. Buy as many of the cheapest ones as you're willing to and chances are you'll get one. If you own all of the ships available to win except for the Kamikaze, then the first premium ship draw you get will be the Kamikaze.

Lalalalalala not listening ... :cap_happy:

 

I have a few premium ships, mostly low tiers as I prefer to use them for training commanders as it's less of a burden than trying to play higher tiers with few skills but according to this page there's quite a list of possible ships, so I'd discounted getting more boxes on the basis that I don't really need more Fir Tree camo.

 

Maybe another 20 small ones wouldn't hurt too much ... :Smile_unsure:

I am in a better but similar situation, Bought 20 large first Got Indianapolis and Huang He then 20 small and got Kidd, Now only Gremy on the list remained after I bought Kii for doubloons. The I bought 20 medium No Gremy, (this was day1 or 2), a few days ago I bought 20 small No Gremy, I have a few days left to think if I would splash more, Like you I have 400-500 Frosty Firs+ 1000 other premium camos so the urge for more is litlle, yes i Couldfarm XP but I have nearly all lines up to 10. I play mostly T3-7 and T10 and on the T10s I have prem camp on most, so my usage of prem camos are only in the little tech tree grind I do (PA DDs).

 

Maybe I can found money for 5 Large but 20? No. And the shipcontainers seems more rare than last year. I would not have mind the camos Frosty Fir as they are very good, if my stock was depleted to say 2-300 but not when I have 1500....

I bought 20 small ones, can't justify the cost of the larger boxes to myself. I got 20k free xp, 1,200 doubloons, 25 Frosty Fir camo (I have about 200 of those now but I'm using them constantly despite the headache-inducing colours as the bonuses are worth it) and a bunch of signals including 250 Papa-Papa (+300% free xp), all of which moves me closer to my other goal of the Missouri before she's removed from the tech tree.

 

In short, still no Kamikaze but also no complaints. :Smile_Default:

No premium drops at all? That was unlucky. I feel bad now, sorry :p.

Don't feel bad, I'm the idiot who pressed multiple 'buy now' buttons to get the things despite knowing what my luck is like.

 

I think my obsession with getting a Kamikaze (I'd settle for a Fujin) is because I played the old Minekaze when it was essentially the same ship and nothing's come close to it since. Probably because those old IJN torpedoes were beastly. I'm hoping that the IJN DD lines get buffed again at some point, BBabies seem to be coping with the introduction of DWT so I don't see a reason why a line known mainly for its torpedo boats remains one of the weakest to play.

I got lucky with the Type 59 as i didn't had to spend much to get it.

 

If WG would repeat the Kamikaze event, it's totally worth it.

Yep, last year i bought only 9 or 10 boxes in total, and the first one gave me the Gremy as it was the only ship i didn't have at the time.
