I'm sure it's just my imagination but is anyone else struggling to earn credits recently?

 

It's not as if I'm firing gold with every tank I'm playing, and I'm playing a few premiums too, but I really seem to be struggling to increase my credit balance.

 

I'm sure I'm imagining it, but it would be interesting to see what everyone else thinks.

It's because of the ''thing that shall not be named otherwise it will close down the thread''

Can't say I have noticed a difference but then again run with a premium account.

I am actually struggling to spend my growing pile of silver on anything meaningful nowadays. Tier 10 tanks have lost their appeal to me because those battles are just as poorly staged as lower tier fights, boring predictable roflstomps.

Could this be somehow related to using more gold ammo while not hitting the target? :trollface:

I'm pretty sure it's just your imagination.

 

I've been gaining more. But that's because I'm just awesome.

They have been skimming silver to corner the tinfoil market. You should buy tinfoil immediately, as much as you can afford. Perhaps wear it as a hat so they cannot steal it. :hiding:

Have you been playing sniper tanks more than usual? Might be someone else is doing the spotting for you, meaning he takes a huge chunk of the credits from the damage you inflict.

The profitability of the tanks has been gradually dropping. You barely see any lower tier tanks and the constant overbuffing of armor either forces you to spam a lot of gold or not pen your shots.

Yes, but the fact remains that (according to vbaddict anyway) average income per vehicles IS dropping. So perhaps some player are only more aware of this after a patch or something.

 

Also there are hidden credit multipliers per tank (according to QB) which are not public. So they can be tweaked at will. For instance, when the skorpion was released i was getting bizarre +30k battles for 0dmg games, now, that's not longer the case (my tinfoilsupplier says WG does this to make new premium tank look like ubercredit makers on release).

How much does credits depend on XP and not just damage?

But you get 10% (or smthing QB was babbling about in some of his videos) more credits for shooting higher tier tanks, don't you? Also the enemy HP pool is larger when bottom tier.

I am poor at economy in WoT. I always have less than 1 million credit. I researched T-10 like 1 year ago still haven't bought it because I never have enough credits (that and T-10 stock grind seems to be one of the worst in WoT). I played like 900 games on E100 and lost more than 20 million credits because of that. But to answer your question, no I haven't noticed.

Yes it has. take a look at the numbers on any tank on VB Addict. As said its probably down to a certain recent game mechanic that we are only allowed to discuss nicely

here's one for the M4A1 Rev as an example. Note the drop in Gross income while ammunition and repair costs have increased.

Clever isn't it. Get hammered by higher tier tanks while being unable to damage them thanks to armour buffs. Shoot gold but the gold costs more than the profit you make back.

They haven't directly nerfed the amount of credits you receive as far as I can tell, but they do keep making changes that encourage prem ammo use and that will eat into your profits.

Where credits earnings are concerned

I dont post much but felt like I had to write this. After playing a few battles, in my humble opinion as the game ages over time WG may have to limit advancement of players otherwise you would end up with an entire game full of tier 9/10 players. Leaving no players left in lower tier games. I have noticed that advancement over the years has been seriously slowed down. I guess the only way to slow it down may be to reduce the amount of credits earned. I think as part of the MM coding the game is arranged so as to keep players win lose rate between 47-53%. You may notice that in some games you seem to make impossible shots getting huge damage and your team seems to win fairly easily. In other games you gets lots of bounces or huge misses when you are sure your aiming was spot on and are part of a miserable losing game. I guess that the game mechanics and coding can be changed to alter the players scoring abilities. Dont get me wrong, I love the game its just that these days I dont take it so seriously and I play now only coz I simply like shoot'n crapfor fun.

 

When I first started playing I was getting 300-500k per game with middle tier premium tanks. These days I am lucky to get 60k with any tank! On average I make around 25k standard account. I also stopped playing beyond tier 7 because it was mostly serious expert players and I always got killed easily plus the fact that I didn't like the chat coz it was full bad language if you didn't play how THEY wanted you to play. I guess my experience warrants only playing at tier 7 and below. I'm over 60 now and my fingers are not so nimble like they used to be. Always makes me laugh coz I can tell when children are playing as the tank moves backwards and forwards like something out of an xbox game. They all run around huddled together and trying to hide behind each other using team mates as shields and the chat is very childish.

 

Back on topic. Credits Earning.

I think I have seen somewhere in this topic somebody say grinding credits is not a happy pursuit and I completely agree.

 

My advice as a senior citizen would be;

1. Use your favourite tier 6 or 7 tank. If you are reasonably good you may earn a few credits or at least stay in the black so to speak.

2. Play for fun and just try to shoot crap.

3. Use the chat respectfully with other players and have fun with comments etc.

4. Best credits earners that worked for me are T34 (Sold it now though as it got nerfed in my opinion), IS6, T29, Tiger, Pershing

5. Most of all, HAVE FUN.

 

Having said all this pick a tank you are happy with and get the crew trained as advanced as you can coz it makes a big difference to performance.

 

Hope this post doesn't get wiped off......
