Yeap, another one, after two games with the Nagato. Same deal as before (rental for three days and 50% discount coupon) but this time is the Massachusetts. WTF :Smile_amazed: WG?

Unfortunately, i don't think i'm going to use her because i already have Georgia, so i didn't need it. If only you could get Supercontainers with ships in them at this rate :Smile_sad:

Same here... it might be that we have too many "Premium Ships" already and are not "interesting public" for such rental trials... :Smile_hiding:

I get them all the time. I think it's to do with the fact I haven't spent any money on the game. The less you play/spend the better your offers will get :D

I only have 3 premiums and never got these rentals even before those premiums. I also have not spent a dime on this game at all as well.

I think this is the reason, because i still haven't spent any money on the game too.

^^This. I also don't spend anything on the game... and in the last 2 months (useful for collecting french snowflakes when it was on) the rentals I can remember having were; Gallant, Molotov, Tirpitz, Ashitaka, Dunkerque and DoY.

I get these all the time. Not steam and zero money spent. I mostly play them once and never again. I got the Tirpitz, the Gneisenau, the Massachusetts, an hm Atago? and others. The only one that impressed me was the Molotov. Still not going to spend thirty Euros on one ship.

If you are  Steam customer, even if you no longer use Steam as your portal to the game, you can get Steam rentals from Steam.... but not offered via WG.

You do tend to get some offers twice also, so f.ex I have "offers" to buy discount Texas/Huange/Anshan via WG shop, and also via Steam - so in theory you could buy them via "one-off offers" twice (or more - technically three times as there is also a 3-ship Steam package..maybe four times as I already ahve these ships and pretty sure i got them via some big discount method at some point in time).  At a point in the past where you got full Doubloon value for the ships one could theoretically make decent dubloon profit "farming" all the offers, but since they adjusted the dubloon compensation it isnt worth it as the discount-ship-doubloon-rate matches the actuall doubloon rate for cash equivalent.

But it can also be negative as some of the Steam packages are woefully out of date, such as the single-ship "offer" of the Huange (With steam flag and port slot) for "just" £16.60p whilst the WeeGee portal is offering the same (less steam flag) for £7.01p
All in all its a bit messed up.

The other oddity with having a Steam original account is that if you go away from the game (for months, 7 in my case) you dont get any "welcome back" packages from WeeGee, nor do you get any "Please come back" packages during that time away (even if you dont use Steam as your portal to playing the game)

@MrConway @Crysantos

I assume that this is simply due to some tracking issues as you cant track those customers actions via Steam? (or somesuch)? even if they use the standard WG Game center as their login point?

Its certianly not a big deal at all, just itneresting to see that there is certianly some "disconnect" on offers depending how you first signed up to the game.

I'm just waiting for ships like Wichita, Bayard, Irian to be available for doubloons in-game. I've got plenty in-game goods to avoid sticking any money into the premium shop. Also I too have never gotten these "try out this ship" rental stuff... but then I have just about every premium there is...

I think those are for players who did not spent money yet. For someone like me those offers are not available... Well my wallet is closed for WG too. 

A win-win situation here.

Giulio Caesare was never a freemium, only T5 bbs that were free I know of are ARP Kongo clones and Octobarskaya Revolutsia

 

@CptMinia IIRC Irian was available for doubloons upon release, ok it was in those boxes but still, I bought her for premium CV refund gold

They did give away thousands of Cesare's to dormant/inactive accounts in order to lure them back in the game (among other ships, also Ishizushi's, Prinz Eugens,...). A mail was sent with "log in, and get this ship for free". That's how MrsFingers got her Cesare.
