I've seen Richelieu and La Gal's with brackets around their names in game.  What's up with that?  What's it mean?

Curious minds want to know.

Rental ships given out to (I think) new players. Was in a dev blog and news article a month or two ago, iirc.

Interesting.  Guess I haven't been tracking the news like I have in the past.  Saw this in game several times and wondered what was going on.

Yep, rental ships.

However, in a couple of Random matches I have been in, the players in the rental ships were AFK for the entire match!

Yep. Rentals for new players, co-op and training room only.

Played a Co-op that had one of the bots playing a rental [Richelieu].  Hard times at WG if the bots need rentals and WG won't even help a bot out by springing a few extra dubs for full ships.

I've enjoyed sailing rental ships in the past.
It was nice to "test drive" the stuff I couldn't research or afford at the time (because I was still relatively new to the game).
Glad to know the practice of providing rental ships still happens on occasion.

Isn't this how they used to show rental ships in clan battles?

Yes, and in rare special events that gave you a ship (e.g. I had a 3 day rental Kaga twice out of some mission or other).
