Oil is slow but if you have a lot of active people then it builds up quickly

If you formed your own clan, getting more oil is going to be a slow, merciless grind. The clan port structures for reduced match service and increased XP are the only worthwhile ones to invest in, and it will take months to earn enough oil to afford just one of them.

I imagine that it will be added to weekend sprees and other missions in the coming future. It's a pretty new game mechanic, and WG likely is focused on working on clan-related issues at the moment.

Same here; if I get some, I get some, if I don't, I don't.

I'm fairly confident they are watching the oil reserves with a cautious eye. It's likely they have some type of future things tied to the gathering of oil; I if it is gathered too slowly, they'll monkey with things. You know, it's the way.

Our Clan has already built the upgrades for the 10% discount to research tier 5 , 6 , 7, and tier 8  that's four upgraded buildings and we already saved up another 3,000 oil for our next project which will cost 20,000 Oils to increase the clan size to 40 players

I'm expecting to see substantial oil from Clan Battles, but we'll see. I think they're due for an announcement some time in the next few days, unless they changed their minds because people reacted so badly to the last one.

20 oil x 20 players x 20 days (in other words, without assuming that everyone in a clan is maxing out every day of a month) = 8000 oil.  This is almost enough to put up two of the Dock buildings per month, or an assortment of the less expensive buildings.  And that is without assuming Clan Wars (if your clan is not participating, for instance).  I have no problem with the pace at which benefits will be accrued.

Is your signature... real? Or displayed for ironic reasons?

20 oil a day doesn’t take that long and since I’m already grinding up 4+lines getting 12k XP doesn’t take that long.

It's not that bad in an active clan. Once you get 50 it really rolls in.

How is obtaining something where the daily limit is reached after 5, sometimes fewer, games, a grind? "Grinding" is also associated with pain and frustration and neither of which applies to this.

 

Actual grinds would be the Izumo, or the pre-buff Baltimore.

I think the idea behind oil is to get people to form new clans (revenue for WG) and then have many large and active clans that may participate in clan wars (more revenue for WG through rentals of tier X ships). In return, the clan members accrue various benefits and the servers remain active so that people don't get tired of waiting to play and quit the game.

What Grind? The oil is given freely if you play the game. You do not ever have to do anything other than Play the game. I do not see playing the game as a grind.

You get oil from getting all 3 loot boxes per day.  There isn't a way to get more other than from special missions from WG, but other than that... it's more like a waiting game.

I only get 10 oil per day, through the Daily Oil event.   I don't get any for the 3 containers I get per day.   Zero.
