WTH? Rentals? I don't need no stinking rentals!

Finished a mission and got three rentals: Shimakaze, Zao, GK.

 

Issue is I already own all three of them. They have now been replaced by rentals? Seriously?

So I can't use my own and have to use rentals with no camo?

Seriously WG?

 

Who came up with this idea? Rentals are for people that do not have T10s and should be optional. I want my ships back!

I've got both rental and owned ships showing up in port.  Can you see your owned ones at all?

I see now. Whew!

They are indeed in the carousel. Had to change the setup.

 

Still, why give them when you already have them?

Thanks

Rentals is a separate issue, a Rental is given to you to play for 2 days at the end of this you are given the opportunity to buy it .. just bought the Okhotnik 

 

these 3 ships are given to play in the Clan Battles and when that ends they will disappear.. you can not buy

Wait so you're saying that a player can buy the rentals after two days of using the ship? Well there goes my 9,000,000+ credits.

I know that. My point was that rentals are for people that need them for Clan Battles. I have T10s (in fact all except Conqueror which I am working on, and CVs which I don't do). I don't need rentals. For a moment it looked like they had replaced the ships in port. Luckily turns out they did not.

 

If people want rentals, good for them. I don't want any.

The rentals are to make Clan Battles more accessible.

And to complete a challenge to get 5 of each special flag.

Slow down there, Hot Rod; what he said was that after you had received, and used, Okhotnik or Scharnhorst, you would receive an offer from WoW to purchase those rental ships. I know this is true because I just picked up Okhotnik this way.

The tier 10 ships are a completely different story; they were given to players (clan members only?) to participate in clan wars for players who don't have tier 10 ships. There will be no offer for you to buy them after clan wars, other than the regular one where you work yourself up a line to tier 10.

I wouldn’t really call them Rentals more like Loaners my best guess is its easier to give everyone DD CA BB than go through who has what X ships and what they like to play

myself I will play my own Zao

These 3 ships are not Rentals but Loaners .. my term ...and they will dissapear once the Clan wars are done ...

however it will take some credits to set them up but I think you can afford it , that’s a lot of credits you have my friend

Indeed it was a bit weird to see both the loaners and the tech tree ship in the port UI.  I wish they would include a toggle button like they do with ARP content so we can turn the loaners off, if we don't want to see them.

Not really. For one, they can't be equipped with camo, and second, you only get 1 choice per type, and it will change twice during the season.

 

Of the current ones, I'm completely unqualified to play ANY DD in CW. I have a captain on FdG I could use, with GK, but with only 1 BB slot, a better player will play BB. That leaves me with Zao, which I will have to play with a 14 point Myoko captain.

 

Next round is good, Hindy becomes available, and my Roon captain will be a good fit there, but then the round after that, it's Moskva, and I'll have to use a 12 point Shchors captain with IFHE.

 

Also, I think it's less of a slap in the face than increasing queue times because fewer players are participating. (although it remains to be seen how many actually use the "rentals")

 

Basically, if you have a Tier 10, you get to use a ship of your choice, with an appropriate captain, that you have experience with, and you can use it for the entire season.

Another way to look at it is some of these ship will be Captained by Baby Seals, but I’m sure they’ll learn quick

Trying to find out the point of that mission... Not in a clan, not likely to be in one, and am pretty worthless as a player at high tiers.

 

Thanks for your post Devil, you helped me understand I basically can ignore these ships if I wind up earning them through that ridiculously simple mission.

The mission is just an easy way to ensure "renters" meet the minimum requirement of owning a T8 ship.

Ive yet to play in a Clan battle  but I suspect its going to be more into Team play and good learning experience and

no dought it will add a new dynamic to the game

I guess a small percentage of players out there may prefer to have the loaner version available even if they own the regular ship, because the loaner version is considered a Premium, and can take any captain without a transfer cost. Thus, you can build that ship entirely for Clan Battles, and use any captain you want on it, without having to pay to put the captain on a Shima/Zao/GK and then move it back after the season is done.

Still, for people playing competitively, you'd almost certainly want the regular versions over the loaned ones.
