Its the life cycle of the forums/reddit. Last year it was definitely all these US radar cruisers that made winning impossible. Then for the last few months its been CV that have made winning impossible, now its rentals in ranked that makes winning impossible.

 

Im looking forward to french DD, and the "stupid dd with no smokes goes into cap and dies" or "stupid DD doesnt go into cap" threads that will inevitably appear to once again claim that "insert X here" makes winning impossible

Rental ships do not have camo.

If you go into ranked in a rental DD, you are all kinds of stupid. I seriously would consider it griefing, it's so atrociously dumb.

This is a very good idea. I like it. We need more proactive, community-friendly initiatives such as these, now everyone can easily find the whine that suits them most. *Applause* 

 

Jolly good show. Mods please take note.

I hope to see such initiative when the submarine whine threads come out

Don't know what thread to pick so just stuck with this one.

If I only had access to rental T10 ships I would play ranked with them. So why would I blame other players for doing something I would be doing in the same situation?

 

I used cash to convert free XP and bought myself a Kremlin. Immediately took that ship to ranked. Similar situation, I take a ship I have no experience with to ranked.
5 wins, 0 losses. Thank you team.

as it becomes kinda hard to keep the oversight i just thought it might would be helpful to have kind of an index on all the rental whine threads, so everyone can choose the one which suits the best :Smile_great:

Thank you for the list. The moderators will do a little spring-cleaning (closing most threads and point to a single one, which shall be known as "Rentals in Ranked - Discussion"), to better focus the discussion instead of spreading it everywhere.

This thread is now the official rentals in ranked discussion thread. Avoid flaming/whining and stay constructive!

while that's a bit of funny, because it's xcatly what this thread not was meant to be *cough* :Smile_veryhappy:, i'll be nice and start with wrapping up my own opinion:

 

rentals - good (as no rental cv's are given out)

--> more rentals, less cv matches in ranked for every other player xcept cv's

--> less ranked matches with cv in 4 me, me gusto :Smile_great:

 

ain't fun when whole team get owned by a slingshot haku! way easier to carry through some rentals... and if not that match, next will have more potatoes on other team, just as every other season b4.... just less cv's for everyone in relation!

I can see why WG have done this: the logic, I guess, is to let less established players have a go on T10 for a brief period, hopefully with the intention of encouraging them to play/spend more to get some 'proper' T10s down the road (full disclosure: it essentially worked on me a year or so ago with the Clans rentals).

 

Equally, I can see why a lot of people are upset: Ranked is sold as being competitive (not that anyone believes that any more), so it sucks to get a deliberately gimped ship on your team, which makes it harder to win - in theory.

 

I've only played three battles in Ranked this season so far; in all three, my side has had more rentals than the other, and we've won all three - a nano-second's glance at my stats will indicate that it clearly isn't heroic carrying on my part, so I'm not sure how much of a gimping effect rentals tend to have in practice. Of course, I could have been lucky and the rentals I got may have been at least vaguely competent players (I strongly suspect as much in at least one case)...

yet 26 matches here, only 1 with reaaally brilliant vegetables and 1 with a slingshot haku (like not 5 in whole with cv's). can't complain at all, from my personal perspective this season yet plays like any else b4, xcept for the slingshot match!....

Your thread has basically usurped all those other whine threads about rentals which are now closed and this thread will be the place to whine about them, was that your intention??

I actually suggested this as a joke, but i guess the mods took the idea literally.

 

which is good because i can for see more rentals at other tiers appearing i mean world of tanks has this at tier 8-10 with prem tanks, so im guessing this will be expanded upon in the near future.

 

too be honest i get pretty nervous diving into top tiers since im still not familiar with them enough and want to make sure that i can do well and help my team (like getting 36k in my saint louis being 4th place and winning lol).

the logic in it:

one place to check all discussion yet and take it into here.... not too stupid imo. but thats like discussing moderation, so i might add:

 

had a match with 2 rentals on my team. landslide loss. but not coz of rentals, but of every player running like chickens!... xcept 4 one rental and me.... but, i'm glad there's not been a cv in that match :Smile_great::Smile_veryhappy:

I must say that while your intention was to provide a ranked gaming experience to all, this season is lacking and has become the least enjoyable season yet. There needs to be more stringent qualifications to get rentals, if you are going to provide these. Otherwise, why cant you run two ranked seasons at the same time, one that allows rentals, and one that does not? Just my two cents.

I'm very sad about this season, let really noob premium T8 players play in rented tier X ships to play, I understand everthing is about money, but this idea is coming from a mentally disabled person only, ruining the whole season........

I was holding a question of a similar note actually. Does anyone consider Ranked to be fun? Why does it exist? I don't know about you, but I would say that suffering through something for a reward you want is not a credible basis for a game-mode. It's as if.... as if it would be your 2nd job.
