You guys acting like this isn't fairly common for consumer based companies (even those doing well) is funny.

I invited my friend to return to the game and his response after looking things over was, "Why battleships?  I don't like battleships."  So I don't think he'll be back.  Maybe mix it up a bit with cruisers and DDs next time.

Makes me chuckle to see WG thinks the French DD crates are an incentive to get players to come back. I doubt anyone would take them up on the offer if they knew the actual drop rates for the missions.  Btw... no missions from 30 of those crates I've opened, lol.

 

EDIT: I take my previous comments back.  I got the Jaguar mission just now.  1/34 are great odds, right?  Lol.

Yeah, I despise the practice of rewarding new or returning customers.  Telecoms are usually the worst about that kind of thing, but here it is afflicting the game we love.  I understand the desire to entice players to come back, but it certainly puts a bad taste in our mouths.  I'd like to understand the thought process that makes them think it's fair to the people who keep their game alive.

This is swell!  Now, how about some even specialer missions for your faithful veteran players who never left!

(Cue "The Cricket Song")!

Probably some Russian thing.

What about the loyal players? So sure we won't give up someday feeling unappreciated? I'm from a country with a law against the gambling loot boxes so I'm out to get the cool stuff. Twilight zone for players like me. Specialy if you read events like these... 

So as a loyal player I get instant 5 mil credits I guess... Or maybe a fair go at obtaining admirals, ships,...

P. S. Do the subs good and you won't need to further discriminate players like this. Keep the ones still sailing happy would be a first step... Not this.

Same here. Did a battle just in case, nothing added to account. Logged out, probably not be logging back in. Smells a lot like a bait and switch.

No Jean Bart nor cashola upon my return, although there are rentals of a Marblehead and an Arizona in my port.

C'est la vie.

For those who don't understand the article (as seen in the comments)... YOU need to PLAY first in order to get the ships. 1 battle is enough to get a rental Dunkerque... After 23rd of September.

I have read and re-read the article and see nowhere that it says what you say it does. in fact this is what it does say...

🎶 The Boys are Back in Town! 🎶

Been away from the game awhile? The seas are still caling your name! 

Until Sept. 15, players who haven't played since June 1st or earlier can get a free 14-day Premium ship rental, 5,000,000 Credits, and an1bbb20f4-bf6e-11e9-8794-d89d6715223c_35xExclusive Mission to score 5 French Containers! The rental ship and mission will vary depending on your previous battle experience. 

Just log in and your ship will be waiting!

Looks like I'll have to stay away from the game for a few months to be offered any love from WG.  That being said, it sounds like the guys who have tried to come back aren't receiving what WG has promised them in writing.  Gee, what a surprise.

honestly, I read "It's Comeback Time" and immediately thought ohmigod, they're gonna rerun past events that newer players had missed! But nope, just French DD container "incentives" for players to come back and play WoWs….*sighs*
