You mean the likes of Zaya, Paris and Norma? No! They are T10 ships cramped into a special T7 environment. Imagine what'd happen if they let me run freely with a stock Des Moines at T7.... ohhh the horror.

 

BUT: If you like the appearance, you can buy the permanent space camos for T10 ships (for 8000!!! dubloons a piece).

So that you have a) some goals and variety to play in the space battle mode (there are quite a few players that look forward to these modes throughout all the year) and b) can complete some mission for the event currency.

 

Also, to check how a camo/skin/upgraded hull design for 8k dubloons looks like

Because it was handled like that for ... well for every special mode so far. Special purpose ships come and go. If you like the appearance you can buy the camo.


I mean ... what's the point of keeping them in port for a year (provided that next years april fools will be exactly the same), without even a chance on driving them?

If all you want to do is LOOK at them, you can try out the 'Extended tech tree' mod, from the official mod pack. Pre arsenal/armoury rework it allowed you to check on ships that were in the client but NOT available to anyone. Maybe give that a try.

To test them out for free for 5 wins.

Otherwise unlock and buy a Tier X ship if you think that is cheaper...

The point is you get to use these ships in space modes without the need to research or fit them - you unlock more by playing the modes. It's also a nice way of getting a preview for ships you haven't unlocked yet on Tier X.

The main reason is because you wouldn't be able to use them again - but if you like the aesthetics, you can get your hands on the skins for those ships.

 

I hope you'll have some fun with them and maybe it'll help you to decide which Tier X you want to go for next :)

Nope, they didn't even let us keep the Dynamo event ships that would have been a much better fit for the main game (with some buffs).

Not as far as I know (the relevant news stories usually state that the slots you gain with the rentals will be removed again, when the rental ships are themselves removed at the end of the event).

You mean Aigle and Galant? Last time I checked those were still in the game. :cap_hmm:

Or do you mean the new reworked Dynamo operation in which you could bring Sims to wreck the planes? But then we didn't have special eventships as far as I renember.

Right now Dynamo is only unavailable until they tought the Bots to fly those arcady planes.

No.

It used to be this way until WG stopped being generous, because they realized people like me existed that already have every latest researched ship in the line, Tier X, Premium and "keeper" they wanted in port and still some 20+ portslots left.

I meant the two t5 ships that were available in the original event, along with Gallant as a premium. Though it seems Anthony was in the same class as Acasta and I assume Cyclone is similar to Aigle.
