Hey guys, 

 

I would have liked to have availed of a few tanks last weekend on discount but I seem stuck on 300,000 credits for a month or more. I play tier6 pretty much all the time lately and this used to be a really good credit making tier. Am I the only non-premium account player stuck in this rut? Maybe I'm pressing that 2 key more than I realise but I don't think so. With this 3-5-7 system in place I find I need a few APCR to help bring down the likes of Defenders and O-Ho but I never remember it being this tough to make credits? Was it always this way? I usually used to make millions and never struggled to buy a tank

Indeed - can make quite a bit when I put my mind to it.

I don't spam too much gold and the only prem consumable I use is auto extinguishers (and I but them in bulk when they're half price).

I used to get stuck playing mostly tier 9 on a standard account, just doing my daily doubles in some tier 6's I was grinding usually made me enough credits to keep progressing. AFAIK nothing changed since 10 days ago. Firing a lot of prem?

Well, if I play a full 2 hours session with tier 6 only, I can gain 100-150k. I don't use gold ammo and prem consumables, so a good game can end in 10-20k income.

But ATM I use almost tier 8-10, so I'm stuck at almost 2.000.000 credit by month.

Nothing new to me too, btw.

T-54 is a notoriously cheap tank though, isn't it...

No premium account. I make money in my Strv 74 whenever I don't opt for something that amounts to straight up sealsmashing in the Ke-Ho, Pz II G or T67 (even with a 90% crew that thing is disgusting, but I don't want to grind up to Sixth Sense at Tier VIII...)

Tier 8 premiums its between 50-120k profit.

Tier 9s roughly 30-50k profit on average.

Tier 10s its between a small loss and 50k, mostly somewhere in the middle, as i use food.

 

Useing premium account.

 

So It's the same as usual.

No.

 

I could but I cannot be asked to play tier 8 tanks thanks to the "new and improved" mm. Also I dont have any of the new premiums, well I do have the Patriot but I really dont enjoy that tank.

 

At least I still have roughly 200mio credits stockpiled in consumables. So no need to do much atm. However the second I run out of credits I also gonna leave the game I am in no mood to grind credits in my position.

 

If even I have to grind credits with all my privileges I have as a good player and in a good clan, than you know WG started to greed to much.

Been grinding a new UK crew using premium meds. Crom B being one of them. Don't feel the need to spam much gold ammo rounds either. So no issues getting a big enough profit. Same with the recent mid tier grinds I've had. Usually end up having more credits at the end of the day, vs when I started. That and if you did the 4 week long mission last month, you might have gotten the stack of 50% credit personal reserves. Not a bad thing to use now and then.

 

Tho when I did complete my last tier 9 grind? Well.... I had to play the E25 etc now and then to keep the credits from sinking to hard. Even more so on the Type 4 grind.

I break even playing tier9 with food and liberal gold usage. So if you arent makign a profit at lower tiers: get gut.

It's hard nowdays without Premium Account. Been there - quite sucky. Even thou I got a nice fleet of Tier 8 Premium vehicles, the average pure profit I squeeze out of them while w/o Prem Acc, is rought around 30-50k per game. Of course, you do get the occasional 70-80k profit ones, but those are rare. For me at least. Without any Premium vehicles however, things are rough. Too much powercreep, too much armor around. A good tank to make money without Prem Acc and Prem vehicles, would be KV-2 IMHO. Just fire HE at everything and don't care if you're bottom tier or top dawg. But I do recommend if you can spare the cash and you're semi-decent player - get a Type 64. There are maps on which you can literally park in a bush, go AFK and come back to see 50k profit w/o Prem Acc. And it's also a wonderful tool to play Tier 6 Skirmishes with, which also boost the income quite nicely.

Thanks for the feedback guys, I don't know what to say the answers are a bit of a mixed bag.. some do some don't.. I really do feel the new mm system is purposefully created(not in a tinfoil hat way) to pretty much create the situation that if you play tier8 or lower, will, by obvious math, generally have you as one of the 7, then 5 rather than the 20% likelihood of being one of the 3 top tier guys. Being this way the tanks are generally but not always, class pending, to be up against it in terms of hp, pen, and alpha along with mobility armour, view range etc to the only options generally speaking, to be competitive, are to play tier9-10 or else tap the 2 key to not simply be bouncing shots in most cases vs +2 tier tanks. This makes financial sense from WGs point of view, if you play tier9-10 you don't need to worry about this 3-5-7 issue as much but the price for that is the naturally expensive cost for running those tiers, especially given even the best can only achieve 60-65% win rate meaning for around 40% of the battles they lose, most of which they will also have used expensive consumables and gold ammo so.. what you gain in the already expensive, barely breaking even 60% wins, you massively lose in those 40% losses. 

The other option, playing lower tiers, as mentioned, is that you will face higher tiers nearly all the time so as mentioned, you will realistically have to tap that 2 key just to be somewhat competitive, this is also very costly, so all in all you can see that WG have it nicely tailored to make you spend money or be an noncompetitive, frustrated player getting wrecked by utter cabbages that you simply cannot pen, out trade or out hp in most cases. 

So what then? Well for now, I have just sold all my large medikits and large repairs for several million, I don't use these anyway, after that I will sell my lessor used tanks and then.. well, if WG keep turning the screw I guess I bow out, not in protest but simply by way of I will no longer be able to run any tanks nor accept being target practice for trashy players in higher tier tanks..

I can make some cash with some T6's, but that's full standard rounds and very few if any premium rounds will get fired

I use T8 for credits mostly though, or T5 howitzers like the PZ4H, which usually makes a few K per game and is atleast fun to play
