I mainly play on the Asia server so I rarely check up on my NA account. So last year inactive players were given premium ships to encourage them to play the game again. Some got Giulio Cesare and De Grasse, while others like myself got the Itchy Sushi, along with a combination of flags. This year it's a rental Graf Spee with a personal mission.

If there are any inactive players here, maybe it's time to log in again. Please share what you got if you do.

Oh, geez.  Great.

This will likely reignite the salty "Free vs not free, why don't I get anything, WG hates regular players" rage.

With the huge amount of ships I got from the Santa Continers I can’t remember which ship they gave me since last login.

... and here we go down the rabbit hole again. 

You just stated above that you hope this doesn't ignite the free vs not free rage but then you post this. Sigh

All of those ships you listed, did you get them for free, for just logging in? 

Or did you have to invest time or money in the form of signals and consumables as well as premium time?

And if your time isn't valuable your employer would like to have a word with you.

So then logging in and getting stuff as a reward for not playing is where the problem is. 

I personally don't mind if the giveaway is a tier 3 and maybe 500 doubloons. That's fine with me.

What really gets me about it is it's around 100 dollars worth of stuff. Now if you are one of the 100 percent free to play players- have never spent a dime on this game ever- and get all this stuff for not playing, that's a slap on the face of everyone who sticks around and spends.
