I'm not sure how I deserved this but after a game earlier I got given Yamato & 2 other ships at T10 for Clan Battles.

Only have T8's and still learning those, not sure why WG think I should have T10.........

Especially as I'm not in a Clan!

 

Me is very confuzzled:fish_nerv:

The rentals are there so smaller/ less experienced clans can get enough players and play clan wars and get some rewards out of it.

 

Don't really have a problem with it tbh as long as it is kept within clan wars (and not Ranked).

That's a problem. I think WG should work on this.

Besides, I'm actually really happy that i'll get the rental Yamato today, since she's the soul reason of why i'm playing this game; so i'm happy that i'll be able to have a small taste of her. I can't wait for when she'll be mine, but i'm not in a hurry; currently I'm slowly grinding the Izumo (it takes its sweet @$$ time).

It's annoying, my tidy ship line up is now one big mess with event ships, clan-only lend ships, try-for-24-hours ships and what not, and no way to dismiss those ships. Go away, if I want a ship I'll buy it.

But what if he joins a clan this evening? Then he atleast has some rental ships ready. I can see nothing wrong in that. Cant you even hide rental ships in port through the options? Then everyone is happy.

Ehh, i turn down any clan offers regardless, since im just not interested (plus i don't have the time regardless).

 

The rental ships don't bother me it's the fact they think its a good idea to give them out when people like myself and molly are still learning the game (my only tier 9 that i grinded is the saintlouis my only tier 10 being midway).

In general I agree with you. But for clanbattles - imagine you have a clan with guys pretty new to the game and not everone has a T10 yet or even worse - you lack a specific class. Its possible you have 8 guys of whom 5 only have a T10 Bb (since we know how popular BBs are, thats not even unlikely). So 3 of those 5 can jump in a rental Cruiser and have the chance to participate in clan battles. And the only ones they are hurting with bad performance are their own clanmembers. So its up to them. btw: we got trolled hard a couple of days ago by a clan that used rental ships. Wasnt familiar with the clan name, thought of an easy win and then their rental BBs start to hammer citas on us and execute perfect play - check stats, turns out almost all of them are 60+WR guys with thousends of games. well played my dudes, 10/10 for trolling :Smile_trollface:

I was just confused as to why I was presented with T10s for CB, when I don't know how to play them. Only have T8 DDs & T6 Cruiser & BB.

All I know about Yamato is she has big guns, can bow tank everything and ........... what?

Do I:

Sail directly at the biggest red ship and eat a full spread of torps from the flank? 

Hang back and have nothing to shoot at?

 

Yeah its nice of WG to hand out these ships but make sure the people getting them can at least use them constructively.

Or am I expecting too much?:fish_nerv:

Yeah, i know what you mean, don't they have clan battles at other tiers besides tier 10? Guess the rentals show that even if you have a disadvantage your skills prove whether you are actually good enough to win or not.

Im surprised im near 60% winrate solo only atm 2,4k games in total lol.

Last Seasons was T8. But the norm is T10, yes.

Well, yes? :Smile_veryhappy: I mean they shouldnt sell premiums then to ppl, that dont have any ship on that Tier for the same reason. Which I´d actually prefer they wouldnt. This bothers me more then the rental ships for clanbattles.
