9/10 matches is against tier 10. you face Maus , Type5 heavy so you have to shoot premium ammo. so you don't

make any credits. so what is the point own premiun tank?

Obviously, since you can't turn your games into profit, there's no point for you owning a premium tank.

Well, it's only your own problem if you fail to earn credits even with Premium tanks...

 

Maybe try to play with lower tiers?

 

You can earn lots of credits with lower tier tanks as well.

yeah i know. point was first they make really good premium tanks. so you buy one. then they make mm so bad that you always face tier 10's. They say you make credits, but you can't when you are always seen tier 10 tank's.

Why don't you shoot some other than tier 10 tanks? There's bound to be 12 of them in the same game if you're playing tier8 as a bottom tier.

 

Even WG can't help if you have serious l2p issues.

There is no point. Premium tanks are now completely redundant. Utterly no point in buying any. WG had made sure of that

Well, you could buy a tier 7 premium instead.

Same people saying recent Tier VIII premiums broke the game are saying Tier VIII premiums are no good because the bandwagon of this thread.

 

And then same people then complain WG "doesn't listen."

Tier 8 premiums are too good, but when you always face tier 10 that doesn't matter. tier 10 are always so much better.

I average between 40k-60k profit per game in my Skorpion G at around 1800 average damage.

 

Quite frankly, Op is full of crap.

You faced Tier 10 with Tier 8 before too, and a lot more of them. Now you face at most 3 of them. You have too many battles not to know this.

To play them in skirmishes and make tons of money, pretty obvious isn't it?

I'm so sick and tired of this Edited argument. Who cares you see only 3 tier Xs if you see them in 8/10 games? You also see 5 tier 9 tanks, which are just gimped tier 10s. This Edited  community.

And that never happened before? Take off your rose coloured glasses. It was just as common to be bottom tier in Tier 8 as it is now, and the situation when you were was worse. Swearing doesn't change that.

No, it wasn't. There are also graphs showing how many tanks of each tier tier 8s meet right now, if you don't simply believe in experience of someone who has 4x more battles than you do.

Most of my premiums never see tier X.

And you have graphs showing how many they faced before? Particularly after they took out Tier 12 battles a couple years ago? In fact from your start date, it looks like you started a couple months after that, unless you are posting from a reroll account. If you look at 'member since' you will see that regardless of number of battles, you haven't been in these forums that much longer than I have.
