Supercontainer changes - Closed test 12.4

After our initial announcement, we are now ready to share more information about the planned changes to the contents of Supercontainers, as well as the general reasons for updating them.

 

New changes

  • The cost of bundles with Supercontainers in the Clan treasury will be reduced from 160,000 and 80,000 to 80,000 and 40,000 oil, respectively. It will also be possible to purchase the "Supercontainers for all" bundle twice as often – once every 90 days.
  • The amount of Supercontainers that can be obtained in the Daily Reward tab will be increased from 1 to 2.

The update to Supercontainers will minimally affect their most regular sources of availability (i.e. sources that are not related to battle performance bonuses from the WoWS Anniversary). The  progress bar will be filled up twice as fast by daily containers, the cost of the Supercontainer bundles in the Naval Community section of the Armory will be halved, the number of Supercontainers in the Daily Reward tab will be doubled, the cost of bundles with Supercontainers in the Clan treasury will be halved, and one of the bundles will be purchasable twice as often.

  • Based on feedback, we decided not to add the standard economic bonuses, and we also reimplemented the compensation of 1,500 doubloons if all ships from the Supercontainer are owned.
  • Since the standard economic bonuses are removed, we increased the probability of receiving special economic bonuses, signals, Free XP, and Elite Commander XP.

The composition of the Supercontainer with the release of Update 12.4 will be as follows:

 
Supercontainer contents and drop rates
  • 7,500 Coal - 10%
  • 1,500 Steel - 1%
  • 1,500 Research Points - 1%
  • 1,000 Doubloons - 4%
  • 25,000 Free XP - 6.5%
  • 75,000 Elite Commander XP - 6.5%
  • 7 days of Warships Premium Account - 5.4%
  • 25 Special economic bonuses of the same type - 7% for each type
  • 15 Rare economic bonuses of the same type - 1.65% for each type
  • 50 signals of one type (India Delta, India X-Ray, India Yankee, Juliet Charlie, November Echo Setteseven, November Foxtrot, Sierra Mike, Victor Lima, Sierra Bravo, X-Ray Papa Unaone) - 3% for each type
  • Tier V-VII ship - 0.82%
  • Tier VIII-IX ship - 0.15%
  • Tier X ship or rare ship - 0.03%

If you already have all the ships that can be obtained from a Supercontainer, you will instead receive 1,500 Doubloons.

Steam Supercontainer contents will be changed accordingly

We thank you for your feedback on the first announcement of the Supercontainer contents update. It helped us make additional improvements compared to the first iteration.

Reasons for changing Super—Āontainers in 12.4

Supercontainers are one of the main ways to obtain the most valuable and influential resource for the game's economy – doubloons. Previously, you could get about a modest amount Supercontainers during the game's Anniversary, since the number of Tier X ships was not so large, and it was harder to research them. As the game progressed, however, more opportunities appeared for researching Tier X ships. For example, there were special economic signals (which were later replaced by rare and unique economic bonuses), as well more ways to obtain various game resources. The number of researchable Tier X ships also increased significantly, and at the same time, opportunities to get Tier X ships for steel, coal, research points, etc. appeared. Meanwhile, the structure of Anniversary rewards remained the same throughout this time.

As a result, the number of rewards received during the Anniversary, particularly doubloons, significantly increased. An increase in the amount of this resource in circulation could negatively affect the economy in the long run because of the risk of doubloon inflation. As a result, in order not to change the system of Anniversary rewards, we have changed the composition of the Supercontainer.

Please note that all information in the development blog is preliminary. Announced adjustments and features may change multiple times during testing. The final information will be published on our game's website.
