Rental Z-39 and Directive grind shenanigans

First thing that happened when I logged in the morning to start playing WoWS: A rental Z-39!

Short impression: not too good, not too bad. Decent. Have Upgrade Slot 5 for Concealment Mod for a Tier 7 ship, which is amazing. Good torpedoes (for her tier anyway). A better torp boat than Maass thanks to Upgrade Slot 5. Good AA vs T8 planes. Big HP pool but wouldn't last against most T8-9 DDs. Modules are quite fragile. Same guns as Z-23 but reload time is from Gaede for some reason.
I wouldn't complain if I get this ship from an SC (being German is a plus), but there are more favored options.

 

Botters, botters everwhere!!!

 

Alaska losing her turrets:

I don't remember spending 1 million FXP to get the American version of Graf Spee.

 

What happened when you were too busy being in the forum and paid no attention to the game:

What am I? A French super cruiser?

 

Z-39 all guns blazing

Because there is nothing else to use, that is

 

What is this MM even?

Can you guess the original names of the ship? :fish_book:

What's with weird ship names that I've never seen it before.

After a night's gaming and grinding, I have completed 3 out of the 5 tasks required for the T6 Premium Ship crate. A fourth task is in striking distances (a casual game can complete the required potential damage), while the fifth one... please RNGesus and the Matchmaker, stop dropping me into hordes of noobs and waste my signals, camoes and effort, please.

But it's much better than some previous Directive grinds, isn't it. I only have the main/sec hit and XP ones to get 'the' ship container.

Nope that's an American Deutschland:Smile_trollface:

Speaking of rental ship, I thought you are supposed to get a rental cruiser unless you have been focusing yourself as a DD recently..

First of all, dude, necromancy.

Second, look at Graf Spee and tell me she has that turret layout. At least quote the correct screenshot.

Some days ago I got a rental Dunkek after playing 1 match with PEF. I think it depends on which ship you play first in the day.

Or it could be random.

I got rental DoY because I played Musashi a lot before that, and then rental Loyang after playing Kitakaze quite a lot. Actually a lot enough to be put in the same team with you for once

So I don't think it could be random.

Its WG's new marketing strategy to make you buy premium ships that you don't have yet.

If you play a BB, they will tease you with a rental premium BB that you do not have yet.
If you play a CA/CL, they will tease you with a rental premium CA/CL that you do not have yet.
If you play a DD, they will tease you with a rental premium DD that you do not have yet.
If you play a CV, they will tease you with a rental premium CV that you do not have yet.

If you have played BB last week, they will not tease you of the same class next week.
You will get other classes. Depends on which ship class you have played other than the previous class.

So far WG has only teased T6 to T8 premium ships.
