I created a second account quite some time ago to see how it is for newbies, on a 100% F2P base. Just 1 nation and max 2 lines. I forgot all about this account untill today. After starting the game i found a shining rental Scorpion G there.

 

On this account i have a total of 44 battles, no crew skills yet and no equipment. 44 battles and i get to play a Scorpion G for one entire week. Oh, the joy for those tier 8 teams that have a slot taken by a player with 44 battles under his belt.... 

 

Just.... WTF WG? How is this supposed to be fun for such a newbie and the other players?

Well does it matter if they get rolled over by 50K players with 5 crew skills on tier 4 or 8? It's not like they would carry more lower down. And you get a T-34-85M rental for 7 days when you do the mission tutorial too. And a free tech tree tier 6 most can do in less than 40 battles. So tier 8 is not far off regardless with 44. 

 

So seeing as most are being useless in their tier 6 with less than 50 battles facing tier 8 all day. It's only fair some get to be on the high end once.

At the same time......the Scorp G is not for beginners either(it has a big shoot me sign on it), so as well as peeing off the team......would a newbie want to buy one after getting hammered after firing and lighting up like a Christmas tree? I can't see it doing much for sales either.

thats why I see so many ruining the games

 

 the thing is when in a 3/5/7 one of the top tiers doesnt know how to move and shoot it spoils the game for the others

Edit: It is a invite code, not a rental!

Good luck.

There are clearly not enough Skorpions in the game, so even newbies get to test drive them for the laughs

I never used a rental but thinking about it its pretty smart move of WG.

What happens to the crew when the rental runs out? dropped in barracks?

So than you have to buy gold for barracks or lose the crew?...smart WG  (if its that way)

Only Skorpion? Look at my old abandoned recruit account:

Every time I log in after few months break I get a rental (or few rentals at once). For some reason they also game me WZ-120-1G FT for free (not a rental).

Tier 8 and tier 6 is a pretty big difference.

 

And besides that, at least give them something a bit forgiving, like a ts-5 or t-44-100 or something. Wtf is a new player ever gonna do with a Skorpion...

No, the tank remain in barracks along the crew... you don't have to buy anything. i have a lot from Twitch, and i store crews on them.
