I don't post often...........

 

It's wearing a bit thin the amount of grind I have to do to earn credits now.  Unlocked 6 new tanks and .... not sure if I'm going to earn the credits to get them before my time on this earth is up.

 

Looking for an alternative game...

Feel free to make a whiny topic and PM me your login details for scientific purposes.

 

(Yes that was a joke, even if I could use an alt with less padded stats.)

You could just focus on the tank you want & ignore the ones that don't appeal to you? I never needed much tanks tbh (compared to some others). got many tanks unlocked, but no intend of buying them, as they don't interest me.

 

Generally, I aim to get tanks that fit my playstyle the most + tanks for platoons, which generally ends up with me having about 2-3 choices to pick at each tier, don't need more (and they're mainly from two nations, Russian & german heavies)

 

Always ask yourself the question *Will I play this tank?* If not, don't buy, unless you need it to grind the next one (and only do it if you want to play that tank)

For PVP, but in space, check the one called Dreadnought. It's still in beta, maybe it will be good. It's similar to Fractured Space. Both are F2P as long as you are not willing to pay.

Why bother?

 

Simple answer could be, just play and have fun and ..suddenly there will be a few millions of silver again ... buy a new tank ... grind crew and exp ... and toss crew in a premium tank once in a while ... and suddenly a few million creds again ...

 

tl:dr just have fun and fck stress'n about it :D

One must fire nothing but premium ammo at Tier 5? Against what, exactly?

Yes, many changes, it was very hard for me to do credits today because of the changes. Very hard.

I look at that Spurtung and think of giving up. But then no oranges and tomatoes mean no plums.

What changes? I make credits just fine. And I've not had a premium account in over 2 years "excluding 1 day rewards here and there". Plenty of tanks I want to buy, but I focus on 2 grind max at the same time. Grinding 6 or more, then you really feel like it's not progressing, and you can't afford anything. Thus the reason as to why I did reduce my focus on less lines and grinds. As no one can afford to maintain 6 lines at the same time when you get up in tiers.

On the contrary, I'm pretty average. Seeing that should encourage you to get better, not to give up.

Have it ever occured to you that not everyone is sitting on both a premium account and a mountain of premium tanks? :mellow:

 

Also, I strongly suspect that you've enabled a credits personal reserve because I remember when I still had premium account and took my FV4202 for a ride... Was difficult to get even above 80'000 credits from a win.

Of course that occurs to me, just pointing out there haven't really been any changes in income like OP suggests. I mean, if you're farming credits, you are not gonna play tier 10 without premium account to achieve it, are you?

 

Yup, I had a +50% credits roughly from 2pm until 4pm, and you can see that's where the larger gains were made. Still for the SP that would be a ~145k.

100,000 silver game, game lasts 10 minutes. 50-60 games to grind 5-6 million credits.

 

You'll have to spend 8 hours to gri- earn credits for that.

 

Sounds reasonable, right? You just invest 8 hours of your free time every time you want to have a go at a new tank! If you are an unicum with tier 8 tank and premium account.

 

Oh wait, net income for Skorpion G, as an example, seems to be actually only 22,000 silver. With that kind of result, lets assume the games end much faster, at 5 minutes. Well, that is just 18 hours of grin- enjoying tier 8 MM.

 

And once you've paid for the tank, the equipment, the crew retraining, the new camo... You'll go back to tier 8 premiums to finance them. Obj 140 -19,000 silver/game, E50 M -22,000 silver/game...

 

So in conclusion, WoT is fine. It is all the same in CS:GO and PUBG, where you have to grind games to pay for the AK ammunition, right? Now don't forget to pay for your privilege to grind!
