Rusty Old Frigates (RUST & OXIDE)

Who Are We -  Rusty Old Frigates is a group of like minded seamen interested in divisions, grinding ships, and competitive game play. Most of our players are Rusty and Old (30+) just like our ships, but we will accept anyone who meets our recruitment standards. Our community consists of two clans RUST and OXIDE. We are spread out across all US time zones, with most people playing during US prime time. While we like to be competitive and win games our primary mission is to have fun playing as a group. We participate in clan battles, operations, ranked battles, divisions, and setup scrimmages with other clans.

 

Membership Standards - 

With our main goal being to have fun while winning games, we have come up with some standards to help ensure that new recruits are a good fit. However, we do have some standards new recruits must meet. These standards will become more strict once clan battles are introduced to WOWS. RUST and OXIDE have slightly different ability requirements, but the rest of the standards are the same since we treat both clans as one. Below is a list of our requirements.

  • Be a cool person to play with.   
  • Be active in game, division with the clan, and be active on our Discord server. We don't have activity requirements as real life comes first, but we do want you to socialize with the group when you are in-game.
  • ~1000+ games played. Flexible depending on the person applying.
  • OXIDE requirements - ~52% win ratio, 1000 WTR, Tier 8 ship, interest in improving game play.
  • RUST requirements - ~56% WR, 1.0 F/B, 1250 WTR, Tier 10 ship, interest in improving game play.
  • We can be flexible on stats for the right person but if you are significantly far off the standard we probably aren't the clan for you.

 

How to join? - 

If you are interested reply to this post or contact the following people. One of us will send you a Discord and Division invite. After joining our Discord you need to division with our clan to see if you are a good fit before receiving an invite.

TOG Tugboat! :tanfiesta:

Good luck to you guys! Is it okay to hang on your discord even if you can't be full time member?  I work 4 evenings a week, but play during the mornings EST and would like to div if any of your players are on.

Sure thing. I messaged you with the discord information.

I'm shit at ships but I would really like to get better, but way below your requirements. Can I be saved or do you have suggestions on somewhere else I should look?

You are still welcome to join us in divisions, and we can give you a few tips after watching you play. Many of us weren't that great when we first started, and have improved to where we are now. I quickly looked at your stats, and noticed that your win rate seems to decrease as you go up in tier. Take a break from grinding and go back to tier 4-5 and work on some of the ships you've played well in the past (Fubuki, Nicholas, Konigsberg) and figure out what you've been doing well in those ships. I'd also try to focus on one ship class so you don't have to worry about differences, maybe DD's first. Also look at some of the youtube contributors to see what tips you can get from there. iChase has some older Captains Academy videos that are good, although once you get more advanced I'd look at other  tubers.

You said seamen . . .

 

Yep, we like long and slender things with seamen in it. Submarines ..... What were you thinking?

As Mnt said we all started somewhere. But if you have a willingness to learn that goes a long way to improving your performance. As far as Youtubers go I routinely watch Notser, Flamu, Aeroon. I think Notser is a bit more 'noob friendly' as a lot of his commentary focuses on the basics and he does explain, at length, what he's doing and why he's doing it. Flamu and Aeroon are a little more geared towards intermediate/advanced play because I think some of their maneuvers are a bit more nuanced and might be harder for an inexperienced player to apply successfully.

I also agree with Mnt's recommendation to pick a line to specialize in and just play the hell out of it until you feel like your decisions are second nature. Remember, repetition is the mother of mastery!

thanks guys, I will check out those resources, appreciate it. If ships had come out first, I might never have played tanks, I have been a WW2 ships nerd since...forever. Do those guys also stream?

There are a few that do stream. Check out Flamuu, Notser and iChase on Twitch. 

And as Mnt said: you are welcome to join us in a division. :)

Hey Mnt, would love to join up, especially if you have a handful of West coasters. Have ships at all tiers from 2-8 and would love falling in with a good crew. Generally active ~4 days a week. Sitting pretty at 58% right now.

Not-Douche evidence submitted as every post I've made on wotlabs and my sexy Patron status.

Sure thing, I've got an invite out to you. All our wotlabs people have been pretty cool, so I feel safe inviting wotlabers like yourself who meet our ability requirement. Also, here is the link to our discord server. https://discord.gg/yrYabbJ  I also added it in the top post so any wotlaber can come join us even if their not interested in joining the clan.

I have to say, I was awed by the sweet, dulcet, sotto voce voice of MntRunner - listening to him on Discord is reason enough to apply alone!

Sounds like someone has a man crush. I should tell you I'm already taken.

Well, this thread took an unexpected turn. lol

Actually meaningful, varied topics slowly descending into latent, mild or blatant homoeroticism is pretty much every wotlabs thread ever.

It happened on Discord last night when I said something along the lines of 'Stop moving. I'm gonna smoke you up' to Jakorsis and other guys in channel were all like 'Oh. Sounds dirty.' lol
