I completed this weeks stage of the event end didn't get an offer (I already have teh Okhothik though).  Three day rental with the chance to buy at the end seems like a great idea, I know there are several premiums I didn't buy because they didn't excite me or look good on paper but after playing them (on my corgi account) I did like them.

This has pros and cons. Yes, you get to try out a ship and see how it preforms. But, it I went off my first few tries at DDs or the Krasny Krym, I would have never wanted them. USS Smith I only recently figured out how to play and I have lots of fun with it. I have fun in just about every ship. Still haven´t figured out the Mikasa yet.

Mikasa was fun when it could be in T2/T1 matches, now not so much.

Would really suck if you weren't able to play much in that 3 day rental window.

 

I think they should base it on a set number of rental matches (say, 5 or 10).  That way a player is guaranteed to get a full duration of the rental period.

Try right-click on the ship's icon in port.  You should get a popup with option to purchase.

Aren't Okhotnik owners contracturally obligated to post sped up replays (like 5:1 or 10:1 speed) with yakity sax playing.

I got a 'special offer' last night for a set of missions that let you earn a free Okhotnik flag

Fixed that for you.  

 

I've owned okhotnik since march, so I am wondering if I will get a rental of something else?

I got scharnhorst, you can move a captain to and from it without penalty right? just want to make sure

Yes. These freebies seem to act as premium ships should in that regard, throw your Bismarck skipper in her and his skills will work, then put him back in Bismarck and he'll be fine.

Not sure I agree. WG depends on skilled players buying Premiums and making them look absurdly OP.

Average player sees this, thinks the ship will make them OP, and buys it. Average player gets tailpipe handed to him repeatedly, decides it's not so OP after all.......:cap_hmm:

No... it wasn't for a flag.  It was the actual ship. 

 

Some people are getting a Scharn rental.

Did it come with Loss Damage Waiver (LDW) insurance?

I've only ever had two special offers since I started playing back in closed beta, so I don't know what normally pops up.  However, both offers I received were to unlock missions and neither were to earn a flag.  The first one I got was just last week and was missions for the Iowa to unlock a permanent camo.  The other was obviously the missions to earn the Okhotnik.
