farmed my 2.5 mil point for all spare tokens and all the chests BUT... i still have last weeks T5 chest in storage.

what i would like to know, as i hear rumours, can the FM chests be stockpiled?
Rumour is if I redeem this weeks T5, then i will loose last weeks T5 chest.
is this correct?
or can multiples of the T4 and T5 chests be stockpiled

T1-3 i use as as i go, but there is upcoming ships siege toys to be won in December raid and i have no desire to waste my existing stockpiled tokens on the 2 Hopes that I have currently building in both my shipyards at the moment. I have no need to spend the FM tokens until i need to whack out a new fleet of siege ships.

Can a Mod or anyone official confirm if you can stack more than one of each tier FM chest or not please.
I don't trust rumours so an official response would be appreciated.
Thanks

    -You can have one of each chest (from PP1-PP5).  You can not save them.  This means you can't use them bank more Uranium or tokens than you would normally be allowed.  This is a prize mechanism and it not intended to be used to increase storage.  

    -Chest timers only apply to purchasing them,  not to opening them.  However you can only hold on to one of each type.

    -If you already own everything in a prize pool,  the chests and tokens will be unlocked,  but you will still be limited to purchasing one,  and holding one of each.

    -If you "skip" PP1-4 and just buy the Sprint Countermeasure,  you would then be able to buy the chest in PP5 only.  If you want the chests in PP1-4 would you need to buy at least one item in each of those prize pools.

    -Timers for chests only apply to chests,  and not the entire prize pool.

    You can stockpile them, as far as I know. There's someone in sector who has multiples of all of them, but obviously we can't be certain it's all working perfectly until they actually open them to build the new siege hull (At least, I assume that's what they're being saved for, didn't say) after next raid.

    This was officially answered the first week they came out. ONE ONLY of each size may be held. They are a prize award mechanism, not a storage mechanism. Even if by chance it lets you hold 2, I wouldn't count on the extra not vanishing at some arbitrary point in time. But if you feel inclined to try, hold onto your small chest and then try to buy another. See if it will let you, or the extra chest just disappears after purchase?

    I've passed this up to be looked into and get a solid answer.  I also thought it was capped at 1 per tier per week and we couldn't stack them.  I use mine weekly so I can't test this myself.

    Last comment on page 1 is what Rampage put out. He stated only 1 however the game might allow more for now. https://www.kixeye.com/forum/discussion/comment/5797834

    I would start planning on this being corrected with a hard cap of 1 starting with the first FM after the raid.
