After the rental time run out I was a bit disappointed that no offer popped up. So I went to the techtree, clicked on her and yes, I could buy her for gold!

Not sure was her original price was. But since the Oleg T3 cruiser cost 2000 Gold I think it is in the range of her original $ price.

It was originally $15 US (3,000 doubloons) with a ship slot

So yeah..  You paid the right price;  No bargain, No ripoff.

Still..  it's a fantastic fun boat for $15.

I am a sucker for any premium ship that has oddities to make it unique.  While I think Okhotnik looks goofy as all heck, she certainly has unique character in spades.  I kind of enjoyed having a ship that not many other players had, or had even seen.  That honeymoon period is probably over, now.  No biggie.  She is a lot of fun to play if you understand her.  If you don't, you will eat a lot of torps and might not enjoy her so much.

Not gonna lie; it's one of the few DDs I can reliably drop upon with my Langley.

What makes it really great is the Russian navy actually built it although I think they took some license with how many guns it carries but there was a Okhotnik that they called a torpedo cruiser that was later re-classed as a DD.

LOL I was going to say it is the one DD I can manage to get more than one torp hit on with a carrier.

I wish they would have done the trial for me I want the Okhotnik and I want to buy it from the tech tree. They must be reaching out to people who don't buy premiums or something. Okhotnik is the only one that you can buy that I don't have.

It wasn't in the tech tree for me during the rental period either. 

 

I am personally unhappy with this whole process.

Ive got lots of premium ships and also the DD Sims that I rarely play cause I suck at DDs but not in The Okhotnik hopefully I can buy it... filed a ticket

How has it been ruined?  Did they change the ship stats?  

No... association with a terrible rental program with no info .. selective client list to play and buy ... major screwup that I’m sure they’ll fix, but bad PR for them all in all

just saying

It was a very rare ship and should not have been ruined like this.

I think what Wargaming did with the rentals was a great idea both from the marketing perspective and for players. It offered our fellow gamers access to a ship they may have missed out on when released and it makes money for the company to keep the game going. I hate ship exclusivity with a passion and am glad to see her in more games. Once WG works out the bugs, I hope they continue doing this.

I am enjoying all the easy Okhotnik kills, because a vast majority of people don't understand how to make it work.

well, okay, that's a double edged sword. I am somewhat frustrated by the Okhotniks on my team that die very easily.
