Back to warships maybe, but I do have alot of DIY projects around my house to do as well so might start them :unsure:

Happy hunting all... signing out. :honoring:

4461 battles and you didn't figure out how economics works in this game?

I have never had a play session where i ended up with negative numbers.

Just so you know the next time you leave the game forever:

 

We don't want to know.

You can sell old unused modules, consumables, other tanks, play low tiers and so on. It might be theoretically possible to run out of funds as not being able to repair your only tier 1 tank but i don't think is practically possible. I don't remember if it's very cheap that you can't lose money (if not going full premium) or that the repairs are entirely free. I never heard of that, of a player running out of silver all together and make his account unusable.

Aside that, go do your plans as you'll get more satisfied than playing wot. All game is like this, always juggling stuff to afford playing as if the game economy is real. You can't even sell your stuff to other players... The whole economy is meant to dry your funds, to annoy and frustrate you. The entire freaking game is based on making your game time a chore and take as much as possible of your time so that you believe that it's worth it to buy premium time, gold and  premium tanks. Which by the way are the same thing you already have, reskinned with randomized stats, sold at unreasonable high prices as "new" content.

Switch on 'accelerate crew training' when your tank is elite.

Converting tank xp to free xp for gold is a money scam imo.

I wonder what he will tell his wife when he hits a rough spot, "Dear, we've hit end game. I just can't afford you anymore. I think that I have other projects to do, since I am quitting you."

Why the douchebag responses? He has a right to highlight the messed up economy for average players.

Well, it is a way to get a lot of free xp very quickly. When you are tier 8+ you sometimes run into tanks that are complete turds when stock, so you need the free xp to quickly improve them, but that requires 50,000-100,000 xp. The grind can be mind-numbing, so free xp is your salvation. The easy way? Buy a premium tank that comes with a bundle of gold & a set of 5x xp missions. Play it for a few weeks with the accelerated crew training turned off to get a massive amount of xp, then use the gold to convert it.

well, he as a recent T110e5 that im sure didn't buy itself... + another tier 9 tank that could be sold for credits... so he is actually richer than i am at roughly same amount of games, and i have premium tanks... so yeah...

id be broke as heck as well after just buying a tier 10 vehicle...

OP, sell your T32, and since it looks like you like your M103 keep that one..

 

btw yr recent WR and WN8 isn't so bad... so im sure you are making profits.. you just have to play some mid tier games more.. as you are going hard on the tier 9- 10 games.. which are known to be not profitable.

Personally, I will risk further vitriol by saying I have uninstalled. Never cared about WN8 or any of that stuff. Just got hacked off with the outcome of my games being increasingly determined by my opponents' willingness to spam gold; the same damn maps over and over; teammates toxicity (driven amongst other things by judgments made from wn8) and other widely regarded problems. I still hang around here because I live in hope that future patches will see fixes, in which case I will have another go.

If you care to look at his profile what he has actually highlighted are the inherent problems of a mad rush to tier X.

I will happily concede that another of the game's problems is people being able to get to upper tiers too easily. I think I must have played 12 or 13k games before getting first tier x... At which point I discovered that firing gold was the most popular, and in some cases only way to go, which was also when I reached my conclusions about the game economy. I genuinely loved this game, so I am not trying to sway anyone who still does so. Peace.

If everyone could play T10 without losing credits(some can btw) on a standard account..........would you bother buying a premium account?

​As a very average player, with no clan to carry me and inflate my numbers, I was losing credits WITH a premium account, at the end. I was finding that an increasing number of players were firing gold at me, which clearly gave them an advantage when my method was to aim at weakspots with non-premium. So I started firing more gold, too. Hell, a BC with a full gold loadout is awesome!... At which point the p2w nature of the game became blindingly obvious. That was the cut off point for me. Maybe it will change, in a future patch. Who knows.
