"Commander, there are no available bonuses at the moment!"

I guess it's only for inactive players. Oh well.

It's probably specific to the account it was emailed to anyhow.

The rewards for getting inactive players back are getting better, or I guess you could say more desperate.  They must be hurting.  I don't mind these types of offers because I understand the business model.  Throwing freebies at an inactive account has little downside, as long as the freebies are enticing but have little impact on gameplay.

That said, I think the rental ships idea is an AWESOME idea to try and lure people to buy premium ships.  I would love to test drive a Mass.

I am surprised they don't let you test any premium ship before you buy it. Unless they are concerned people wont buy some of the hot garbage they release?

I did bring up the "lease with the option to buy" in a previous thread that some one else started.

I got this email too for my long dormant SEA account. I'm going to keep on waiting until they give me a free ship there :Smile_teethhappy:

They ought to review these ships being sold and shown on video with no captain skills and no modules. ONLY what you can select when its nakkid and in stock configuration.  Have the battle shown with other ships totally stock as well.

THEN you have a baseline of what a player could do whether they are good or bad not depending on modifiers.

They already gave away free Cesares, and I think, Tachibanas. I was able to claim the Cesare return bundle.

A bunch of games do this to entice past players to come back and play again.  Possibly spend again.

 

What does the company lose?  Digital credits, XPs, a digital ship for a chance of someone coming back to play and maybe spend money again?

Looks like a good offer.... as my friend has a dormant SEA account, and received this offer by email, I thought I'd log in and see how it works.  (OK, maybe I just wanted to play with the Massachusetts a bit...)

It does say "Win a Battle", so I went off to coop, and was on the winning side.  100K Free XP, 8 million credits, 10 stars&stripes camos, and 5 of each special flag were added to the account on returning to port.  There was also 5 supercontainers (with the usual supercontainer stuff) and a 30% off coupon link to the premium port.

However, I couldn't find the rental Massachusetts... not in port, not in premium shop, not in containers....  Going back to the email, and clicking on the "reward claim" button takes you to the same bonus page where you check for public test bonuses.  Don't know where the Masschusetts is.... and I'm not sure any returning previous player will find it either.

meh, oh well....

I think that it'd be a nice idea if there was a short term, one time rental on each new premium ship.  Maybe something like 5 battles over no more than, say, 3 days at most, perhaps random or coop battles only (to prevent someone from using a rental in Ranked, etc.).  Maybe put them in the Arsenal and charge a nominal fee in coal (and I do mean a LOW amount, like say 100 coal).  Enough to get a taste for the new ship.
