Winning games and playing top 3 is no guaranteed of playing even or winning some credite UNLESS you have a top game or by using gold ammo and combine that with a premium account.

To say the least, this game is no more than a cashcow for Wargaming with little to zero payout for the mediocrate players....

Some examples i studied and found out that slowly but steady my credits dissappear from my account, i was a happy player for a few years to find out that it costed me a lot of euro`s to make some credits.

Now that i have sold 95% of my tanks and having 30.000.000 on my account i only play the T37 and the RU251 so extend my NON premium and NON using gold ammo account. 

Some screenshots from different games show how it workes.

You are using premium consumables, 2 a game on average by the looks of things and you are paying for them at full price, that is barely affordable with a premium account. 

 

You would have made a profit on two of those games with regular consumables, and the other one you played crap, you can't expect to make profit on tier 9 tanks doing 600 damage.

If OP's trying for the HT VI with two light tanks, I wish him luck. Maybe with reserves, but unless he's a great player, that's some serious grinding. :D

I'm sort of trying it out atm on another account. Full f2p and no gold ammo and see how it is and how good I would actually do.

So far I've only noticed that it's still easy to do well at mid tiers and that you need a ton more work fir things like unlocking tanks, crew skills and affording to buy equipment.

Impossible? No. /thread

You would not even make a profit on 2 of those 3 games with a premium account. So why complain? Since you are using 40 000 credits worth of premium consumables. When most use those on a high tier, income is not a priority.

 

 

Then again I'm sure you understand why high tier tanks at tier 8 or above have a lower income vs profit threshold vs lower tiers? It's not just to force you to get a premium tank etc. It's to force others to play lower tiers. To spread the population. If not everyone would be playing tier X for income anyway.

 

I've not bought a premium account for over 2 years now. No issues maintaining a good income on non premium tanks. Or affording new tanks fairly often.

There's some heavy misunderstanding at your side. Using "gold" ammo does NOT make more credits. It uses them more. :amazed:

I'm running standard account.

T8 starts to be very hard to break-even even if you don't use premium consumables.

With premium consumables, it becomes way way way harder.

T9 is very hard to break for me. :(

T10 is far worse though, in terms of ability to free to play.

Also, it becomes super hard to pay for new tanks at higher tiers.

Twice as long to farm creds too, on premium tanks.

Your assisted damage is very low in 2 of those 3 screens. Do you spot for the team in your lights? or just kemp bush and snipe?

Yes, the game is a cash cow, big surprise the fact that a corporation is looking at making money out of a product they developed. And they made the game rather expensive at high tiers without premium account, and sometimes even with premium account. Whoo hoo, you uncovered their plot. :great:

 

To me it seems that you are a very troubled man who is on the verge of quitting the game (that is entirely up to you and whatever choice you make is ok as long as that is what you want).

 

And whatever advice people will give you here will be wasted on you. I am looking at your stats on WotLabs and I see you used to own T26E4, Löwe, AMX CDC, T-34-3, E 25, AT 15A, Type 64, Dicker Max, and another few low tier premiums.

 

So, you sold your premium tanks in order to make more credits? You sold your credit makers in order to extend your NON premium account? That is some strong logic right there.

For what it's worth, I'll leave this here. Includes ways to make the game economy work harder for you. Some of them involve spending some money, some don't.

I always assumed that my lack of money making at T9 and 10 was down to my lack of skill.  :hiding:

premium consumables :D why?

you have standard consumables for 3000 each (instead of 20.000) which u can use few times per game. why would you spend that amount of silver??

 

but yeah, the last tier where you can regularly make profits is Tier 8. most profitable ones are tier 5 and 6. Because they still cheap to repair.

tier 9 is profitable ONLY if you have very good game, with DMG above 3000 and no premium ammo/premium consumables. otherwise - forget. that is hard with premium account alone.

WoT is a game released and supported by a commercial venture, so what else do you expect? It's not a touchy-feely charity for the players and whiners.

OP, you already have enough answers to why you are running out of in-game currency.

I will close this thread.

Have a nice day.
