I'd give you mine if I could. LOL

Got it in a Santa crate and have played all of 3 games in it.

WOW.... those textures... So 1999, like Halo CE level of textures.

 

Back on topic, three day rentals? When did this start?

Looks like it is through personal offer's only, as a quick search of the premium shop and the client reveals no way to do this on-demand.

 

I still can't get over those textures though. It is taking me back to my days of playing the OG Ghost Recon on PC in 2000....

Well... playing on a budget let's call it.. an Asus laptop with the textures cranked down to 25% of their max so FPS will hover around 20-22. Planning on an upgrade this fall/winter... might even build one... there are enough $500 gaming PC builds out there.

 

I've sort of gotten used to it heh heh...

Actually if you think about it - which maybe they do not - they could take ships like the ones they are test floating and offer them to players, as they have, at 50% off for five minutes. The best way to sell something is to make it a spontaneous sale... heck, I was ready to grab my wallet at the second message but careful reading is required. 

 

It has been around for a long time... who really wants to drop $42 on the Scharn these days?

Really??? It's actually a very nice ship. Plays a lot like a Cruiser and if you upgrade the AA it's a menace to enemy planes lol.

Does it come with unlimited mileage and insurance?, try not to scratch the paintwork or you may lose your deposit ))

Seriously does it come with a Captain, and does he have any points?

Try not to give broadsides... but I always do. I loathe King George and tier VIII and IX battleships and cruisers.

this rental garbage is NOT GOOD.

World of Tanks did this with high tier TD's and suddenly every match was full of players with no idea how to play the vehicle.

It pretty much turns into a noob factory.

Hopefully they don't keep this up and it isn't widespread.

Ever played tier 10 battles? It's already a noob factory with players rushing to get all the t10 ships without bothering to learn game mechanics and tactics. Even worse........ Now days it's very common to find your tier 8 ship in a 90% tier 10 battle because so many are doing so. This is profitable for WOWS but destroying the game.

I just got an Ohotnik. It seems to act like a premium ship, I can put Russian captains in and out without retraining so yep that's good.

None of my skippers are that good for it though...

Credits and FXP should be kept going on previous, you get credits for the Dunkirk mission for instance and they're yours.

 

Little downside to it, I just wouldn't advise re-speccing a captain.
