There are events that are running that give rewards for oil to your the clan. That I understand. I am not associated with a clan so far, however this brings me questions that I can't find in the forums in regards to the oil currency reward for the clans.

 

  • Since I am not with a clan now, is all the oil rewards vapor in my profile?
  • If the rewards are not vapor, are they pooled to my profile?
  • In the future if do join a clan, if past oil rewards are pooled, will the past oil rewards from past events be credited to the new clan?
  • Will oil earnings be shown in the players profile?
  • Will oil earnings be shown for clans for recruiting purposes?
  • Would there be a signing bonus by WG happen for the clan in joining?

 

I appreciate if anyone can answer my queries.

Good questions...I only wish I had answers for you but the system is still too new for most of us players. I've also been wondering if my oil earned stats are being tracked anywhere.

I think we're supposed to get a portal article tomorrow to cover most of the clan questions.

Oil gets contributed into the clan you are *in*, clan keeps whatever oil you earned while you were there, it does not get transferred with you to a new clan.  You do not earn oil unless you are in a clan, so you can't use your accumulated oil in an attempt to bribe your way into a clan - it simply isn't there.  I am not sure if they will track your overall Oil production outside the clan you are currently in, such as in your profile - it's still too new a concept.

Jeez.  Do you people even look at WG's home page?  https://worldofwarships.com/en/news/common/bases-for-success/  With a little effort, you too can beat stumbling through life in the dark.

 

That information is only relevant to if you are in a clan. I am not at the moment, ergo the questions

That's right.  It will also tell you that if you're not in a clan it won't apply to you.

Well I guess overall  I am trying to get these answers from WG, which of course you are not a representative of the company.

Jeez, I provided you a link to WG's website in the initial response.  Pull your head out of your nether regions and read.

We have a Support article coming about Clans that will function as an FAQ. It'll be here in a day or two. Apologizes for initial confusion.

Is there any info as to what type of oil are in those drums? I'm allergic to peanut oil and prefer Canola or Sunflower oil so that I don't have to carry a EpiPen while playing clan battles.

The wiki sections for Clans are also in development.  I apologize for the delay, but we don't get to test out game mechanics any sooner than anyone else and have to figure it all out on live after it releases (just like you do).

Quite true, but we can read what WG had presented about oil and convey that information to you, or you could go to the link provided above and read it yourself.  Pretty much all of the questions you have asked are answered there.

Later on, there will be a sticky subject (no joke intended) about members who are 'kicked out' of a clan.

I think in that case, the -dismissed- person should get some sort of voucher for what he/she made for the clan to take to the next one.

I understand quitting, but in the case of arbitrary/intentional misbehavior of the managing people, getting rid of contributing players should come with a cost.

It would be so sad for some to work so hard for something -- just to have the rug pulled out near the end.  Like I said, Sticky subject.

Again, the link says "If you are a clan member"  of which I am not. So the link does me good only so far for information. Which is why my questions are for if you are "outside" of the clan in regards to oil. I have no problems BTW if the oil is vapor since I am not with a clan. All of this brings up another question to mind, can you donate oil to a clan you are friendly with but don't what to be in a clan? Sorta of like a community charity box of sorts.

Just join a solo clan. There are a lot of them out there. Continue to play solo, but your oil is collecting along with all the other solo players in the solo clan.

Yes, you are not a clan member so you can not earn or use oil in any way shape or form. Only members of a clan can earn or use oil, which is why it says "If you are a clan member".  It is a clan specific resource.

It is not the link that is failing you in obtaining the information you request. I quote the "On the Horizon: Clan Naval Bases" article that Wargaming published (the link to which, has already been provided to you):

 

"You can't receive any Oil if you're not part of a Clan. (Which means you won't even receive it for your personal wallet)"

 

Now, that's a pretty plain statement. Worldofwarships.com. Front page. All you had to do was read it. Something else is failing you.

Everyone calm down please.  The OP asked a question and he does not feel like he has been given an adequate answer.  That is no reason to flame him.  This is another WoWs cluster flub where we all learn as we go. 

This game is set up so that member volunteers do a lot of the work for WoWs.  Other members use the forums to share whatever new info they can glean.  We like the game so we try to make it easier for ourself and others.  We are all in the same boat.  Players need each other.

Twould be a shame if the single player couldnt gather oil, so they could collect it for when they wanted to join.  Would help like this: I got a bunch of oil, a decent win rate, and the required level of ships. May I join your clan (though it should be: May I join your Fleet?)
