Rusty Old Frigates (RUST & OXIDE)


Are you looking to join an established (600+ days) Clan Battles and KOTS veteran clan, or to learn how to become a better Warships player? We are looking for experienced and skilled Warships players to expand our roster, and would like to division with you to see if we are the right fit for each other. We have two divisions for players; RUST is our main division that will put it's efforts into competitive play, OXIDE is our training division where people can division with and learn from both RUST and OXIDE players as they work to meet qualifications for being in RUST. What is RUST about and it's expectations for membership?

The primary RUST goal is purpose driven competitive game play while remaining FUN - no Debbie Downer's or Wendy Whiner's need apply. In pursuance of that goal, we use these following guidelines to help sort out starting standards for new applicants:

• A minimum average win rate of 54% across Tier's 8-10in division play, 57% or higher is preferred.
• Over 1,800 total PvP battles and at least 100 at tier 10.

• A positive attitude, a desire to improve as a player and a willingness to take constructive feedback.

• Experience in Clan Battles or King of the Sea tournaments.

• Ability to be available for at least 2 hours on scheduled Clan battle evenings during the CB season.

• At least two tier 10 ships that are useful for clan battles ( Minotaur or Grosser Kurrfurst being examples of ships that are NOT very CB viable ).

• Proficiency in your chosen tier 10's - what that looks like will be discussed as we get to know you.

• Regularly active in our Discord for divisions and chatting. If you are in game - be available for conversation from a clan officer - plus the game is simply better when played in divisions.(edited)


Our Training division is known as OXIDE. It's purpose is to give a place for rising players to improve their skills and move eventually into RUST to contribute to competitive clan activities.

• Over 800 battles and at least 1 tier 8 non-premium ship. A 50% or better win rate is the base standard for an OXIDE applicant.
• A positive attitude and a strong willingness to learn. • Regular attendance in our discord, division, training and discussions.
• Good communication in game. Both verbally and clear microphone. • Involvement with tactics and game play discussion.
• A displayed ability to improve and obtain tier 10 ships useful to Clan battles.
All members are expected to check in to Discord on a weekly basis, whether they are playing Warships that week or not. The primary reason is to keep up with clan announcements and keep in touch with clan training and scrimmage dates. The expectation is that if you are going to be gone for more than a week, you will let one of the officers know about the reason for your absence.
The purpose is to make us a connected team of players, who help and look out for one another. We aren't going to be attractive to lone wolf types of players - we like to division and we like players who WANT to division with each other.
We don't need solo super stars, we need quality people/players who like working as a team.
Currently our weekly training and scrimmage schedule is being decided on, when it is set players are encouraged to participate at least 4 times per month. Players that participate more will be given priority for selection for CLAN BATTLES. Officers will be present to ensure members are on Discord amd attendance is noted.
If either of these two options sounds like what you are interested in, contact one of the following recruiters to get a Discord invite and show up in the "Recruit Pool" lobby that is available there. One of our officers/recruiters will start the divisioning process with you to get the ball rolling.

As a quick add-on, if you have a small clan that hasn't grown the way you had hoped, or you find your clan shrinking due to inactives and a lack of available new recruits, please reach out to me via PM on the forum.  A lot of small clans have a nice cadre of good players, but not enough to be able to field competitive teams for CB night after night.  We feel your pain, and want to work with you either through a temporary transfer mechanism ( you hop into our clan for CB so you can participate and then return to your own after the season ) or if it's a good fit, a permanent merge might be possible.

The pool of new recruitable players is shrinking, skilled players that are available are even rarer - lets work together to achieve steel and other CB rewards that are waiting for savvy sailors!
