Play one random or clan battle on the PTS and when CW's start they put a shimikaze, zao, and GK with 15 pt. captains in your account. Iv'e only seen one battle where someone popped smoke, but they too far away to see the difference in the new mechanics. Going to try the Halloween op later..looks like fun!

Um, don't you have to play at least one Tier VIII battle to even unlock the rentals?

Just so you know, you do sound like a jerk.  With all due respect, of course...

So, we have people complaining already about inexperienced players in tier ten ships so how will it be any fracking different now?  

And yes, you sound like a jerk.

I prolly missed that in the notes, but  I have been in and out of the WOW news page for a few weeks....
But I still feel like it might end up a bad idea

Well guy what's the difference between this and a guy who can whip out a credit card and wallet warrior his way to ten... That's right there is none, so what you preach is moot at this stage in the game.

I still don't see why this is a problem.

 

It doesn't effect the more experienced/better teams at all, while opening CWs to many  more players.

yes    and people complain about WWs as much as they will now be able to complain about this... Perhaps the point I am trying to make is getting lost to certain  people that are misunderstanding the point.... Sry about that... I will just leave this alone....

It’s a freaking game, it’s not important at all.  And what “reputation” do I have?   That I don’t drink the koolaid some of you drink?

in a nutshell, my point was that the forums might light up with a lot of rants about giving inexperienced players ships for IMPORTANT CLAN BATTLES.....
I should have been more of a "layman" when I tried to make the point...

Trevzors did bring up a good point on the recent podcast. If you are going in with a clan. That clan has direct control over who participates. So if the opposing clan bring people with rentals, then that's on them. The idea and reasoning behind this move was to allow clans who might be short on people, say halfway throw the season. To permit them to get emergency substituions in.  Team battle had issues where members could not make and subs would have to be found.

Oh, yeah, remember the forums are the vast minority of players in the game, don’t equate what you see here with actual feelings of the player base..

People have been making far too much out of this.  This is "CLAN" battles, not ranked.  If a noob with a tier X ship is in the game, then that is their clan's fault.  So either one of two things will happen.  Either you will face a clan who let a noob into the battles, therefore giving your team the advantage, or you are in the clan that would let a noob in, in which case you should have a talk with your clanmates.  There aren't any random teams in clan battles, unless I've really missed something somewhere.

Impact of rentals is universally positive. People who couldn't play, can now play. People who lacked a specific type of ship (say, cruisers) can now balance their teams better. People who didn't need them, now have shorter queues. Everybody wins. The only ones who lose are the people who wanted the Battle button to be the wall that kept everybody out, and that's how you get dead modes, so those people can Shift-F12 my Shift-F12.

Besides playing a T8 battle after Clan Battles start, being a member of a clan, you also have to be acct level 15 to play in Clan Battles. 

 

I think the renting idea is a good one, so that more clans can participate if they choose.
