Check this guy, he made it into the WG best replays video, has a premium account, had a great game and still has to pay after such a great game, happend to me too and I don't have a premium account.

Well since he spent 80k on ammo he apparently spammed heat or apcr or hesh, you could say thats why he also played so well cause he didn't have to aim as much, but aside from that yeah if your shooting heat or apcr or hesh the whole game yeah your gonna lose money. If you wanna make more money don't use such expensive ammo, WG isnt forcing you to shoot rounds that cost 5k a shot.

Simple really, don't play what you can't afford.

High repair/ammo costs are just WGs way of making you buy prem time.

so what he went gold only to make it possible  80k for ammo + 2x premium consumable

over 5k from 300m and more  most likely not spotted by himself  as such -50% crds

and  if there werent 8 misses and 3 non pens  he might have even scored a lil win

 

he went the money way to improve his exp  so i wouldnt really complain it costs him a bit

also a T10 tank mostly fighting T8s

Stop playing tier 9 and 10 tanks, not only will it make tier 8 tanks more fun to play but they might just have a rethink about repair costs.

 

I don't really think this would happen because the chances of everyone giving up playing those tiers is unlikely.

 

Game just isn't designed that way without premium tanks or time you would have to play an awful lot of tier 5 and 6 games to fund comparatively few high tiers games.

You played over 10k matches and own multiple higher tier tanks, so you should understand how the economy of this game works.

He has to pay that much because he spammed premammo. Simples.

 

You are basically asking WG to break the game, so I'd think about that request again...

also the ferdi and SP from this video shows how money can be made even without premium accounts

and the SP even nailed it at 134k net gain for that match

To some degree OP has a point. It is expensive to carry games. Effort is not linear to reward. That's sadly how the grinding system must be if they want any player to lose their way to an IS-7.

 

While an entirely linear relationship between income (credits are the main problem here) and effort (i.e. damage/assist on a win) isn't a particularly good idea, WG could likely still get away with a compromise.
Grinding credits I believe you get the most credits per minute by playing rather recklessly instead of actively trying to carry games. Rush in, do some useless damage and earn 20-40k. Effort spent is easily way less than a game you carried - and don't get more than 80-100k for.

I wish I could hire you guys to explain this in every BRW episode, answer all the twenty different people complaining about losing credits at the end of the game...

And also to keep mid tiers populated as people have to play those to earn the credits to fund Higher tier tanks.

Noooo! Play more T9 & 10's and less T8's. That way T8s might get a better MM

This,  I can spend 2 minutes in a game, do some spots and get some damage and make more creds, than spending 10 minutes in a long drawn out game.  Especially true in a low tier tank where my recklessness has a lower impact on throwing the game.  I.e. creds from 5x2 minute games > 1x10 minute game.

Because WG wants more money from us. Basics of F2P games.

Shoot "premium" ammo, use "premium" consumables -> surprised by the high price. Legit... :facepalm:

Or just stay out of T10 completely... 

 

Easy solution. 

It's been like this since beta so why change this

Premium ammo and buying premium consumables at full price.  Been playing long?
