Rarely, for a time they were giving out reserve spots like candy but they have always been stingy with port slots.

I think they used to, but I'm pretty sure they removed that.

Edit: If you need port slots, wait for a doubloon sale. Then, with those sale doubloons, wait for a port slot sale. You can get then for 75% off, and it's nice to grab 40 for the price of 10.

Yes they do. Pick the credits containers, but they fall about as often as supecontainers.

Bad knowledge!

When this game was young there was  somewhat decent port slot delieveries when you earned containers but now port slots are very rare. 

Obviously WG thinks there are enough new players so new players must buy port slots with real  money. WG even kick off old players through WG:s actions and improvements, so there are very obviously very healthy playerbase currently.

Per some of the above postings, a couple of years ago I used to get ship slots reasonably often, but have not seen one in some time. Not to steal this thread but at that time I also seemed to get loads of Captain slots, which really became an issue as folks were getting so many. I haven't gotten one of those though for some time either...

I have many ships, and have bought less than a handful of port slots. Not sure if they were earned through events, or given in containers when they were added... 

I have noticed that recently though my number of available slots has diminished greatly, and I haven't gotten a free slot in a year or more.

I received one a few weeks ago, either while choosing "more consumables" or "more resources."

Been playing for a year.  420ish containers, 1 port slot.

Slightly worse than my SC drop rate.

Probably the "consumables" crate.  I used to get them when I chose that one.  I always choose "resources" now, and haven't seen any in forever.

I've only gotten a few in the Credits containers ... but that was quite long ago and I choose only Resources now.

I have 4 10pnt captains I could put in new ships and grind new lines.   The fact that WG wants to charge me real cash 300 DBLNS for each " FREE " ship in order to park it I just won't.  Something just really seems wrong with that to me.

I have occasionally found a port slot in a credit container just when I needed it.

No tinfoil was harmed in the creation of of this post.
