Thanks for letting people have rentals, WG.

75% winrate today, while playing in tiers where the two rental ships are prevalent. Obviously, this has everything to do with the gross incompetence of the enemy's rental Scharnhorsts and Okhotniks, and nothing to do with my own skill. 

As someone else so eloquently put it, "Gee tnx WG, for some reason the opposing team has been giving me an easy solo 75% win ratio today."

 

As it is, I only played four games, since that's all I had time for, but they were great fun. The enemy team played well, and I found myself in trouble quite a few times because of it. I'm happy that people are getting the opportunity to play around in ships they otherwise wouldn't have.

Hasn't there been a lot of post and players calling for some kind of Premium Ship rentals?

Because I pretty sure being able to test drive premiums is something that has been asked for a while.

I don't see anything about being able to rent a ship anywhere, where are people renting these things from?

It's an automatic thing. People have started getting either the Scharnhorst or Okhotnik in their ports, available to play for three days.

This is likely a test by WG to see what kind of impact rentals will have in clan wars when facing off against veteran teams made up of ship groups that have over 100 battles in each ship and a 19 point captain.   Needless to say...I don't think it will be such a joyous occasion for those using the rental system.  Sun Tzu would frown on this...because in this instance...you do not know yourself...and therefore have broken a key requirement to winning a battle.

Well; I already have both so maybe that's why nothing has come up in my port?

 

All I did see was an offer to get the Arizona commemorative flag... Guess I didn't buy the ultimate bundle when I picked it up originally; because I didn't have that flag in my flag locker already. That; or it was just a new flag.

I don't have Okhotnik and it didn't show up in mine. That is the only Premium that is obtainable with cash that I don't have.

I don't have any 'rentals'.  Then again, I already own Scharnhorst and Okhotnik.

Can someone please help how come I’ve gotten nothing while everyone else has the rentals??

Nevermind. I got a Scharnhorst.

 

Make sure you check your entire port, including non-Primary ships. Mine was at the far back of all of my ships.

Hmm... Random battles? Those are all I play (excluding Operations), so I often forget that there is co-op. There also might be a tier restriction or something...

I have no clue. As far as I'm aware, the Scharnhorst just showed up.
