Can we get credit boosts/reserves instead of tanks for bonds, or at least before tanks for bonds, in the premium shop. With current MM I dread taking out tier 8's into randoms but credit boosts soften the blow. It also means I wouldn't need to spend weeks grinding out credits for the tier 10 that I spent months on grinding out to. Credit boosts would also mean I could make credits with some of my tier x's which imo is the way it should be, rather than punishing people for playing the tanks that are considered end game and the tanks they spent years on getting. Or you could just release hero tanks. I'd happily blow more money for a tier X prem tank that churns credits *cough* chieftain *cough*.

No seriously though. I'd love to see credit boosts for sale. I don't see how it could have any downfalls to the game. if you see any then discuss.

Would be good. Or give us the chance to win 40 credit boosters via an event like "March of nations".

For WG, giving too much credits out will kind of shorten the lifespan of the game for the average player.

Once you have everything you want grinded out, you might stop playing and most of all you might stop paying for premium.

 

I am not even at 30k games but I already have almost all the tier X I want (31 in my garage at the moment, few of which I should not have even bought).

 

For the collectors who do not play clan wars, the credit earning is the biggest hurdle, as xp is nowadays quite easy to grind with xp boosts. 

 

For the player there would not be an obvious downside, but I am guessing WG is optimizing their earnings per player by not giving out too much credits.

You have to be spamming gold on tier 8s to need credit boosters. 

Still, knowing prices for the ingame things, it would probably be cheaper to have prem account then to buy booster packs.

Or.... just buy premium account. It will give you the 50% credit boost.

I think the point of using credit boosters is only when you already have premium account on. It seems the tech trees in the game basically cause credit shortage if you want to get all the tier X tanks - you get the xp much sooner than the credits.

I bought some approx a month to six weeks ago.  If I'm in the mood for a 2 hour session I can make a lot of credits.

It seems that OP isnt using premium accounts if he is losing on tier 8 games and spends weeks grinding 6 million credits. With my STRV S1 and only a premium account I managed to grind 10 million in 4 days.

If they price em right it would balance out as I'm sure plenty of people would buy them. Not to mention if people did grind out most tier x's they would probably continue to play high tier games which requires credits. Do you still play the game as much as you used to or did having most tier x's give you the 'I completed the game and don't find it as interesting' feeling. If I was in your position I'd literally come on to play nothing but Clan related stuff as my interest lies mostly in that rather than pubs/grinding.

Not really. I run premium, And not everything has 288 standard pen like the strv and I'm not one of those arrogants that refuse to shoot gold when a victory is on the line just to scrape up every last bit of credits not to mention going against tier x all the time. Also not everyone has the time to grind prems. Whilst I do have the time to easily grind credits,tier 8 and 9's are what I consider artificial game lengtheners as only a few has unique/fun features to use. I find them really boring I don't know why so much tho. Love tier X's, love most tier 7's and below, few tier 8's I find fun and 9's are also the same apart for  9's have more gems worth playing not so much because of the tank but the parameters it faces, e.g MM in proportion to the upgrade you'd get at tier X.  Either way not so much of this is what I do and don't do to maximise credits, it's about making it easier and it's something that wouldn't be pay to win as you'd still need to perform your best to make the most of the credit boosters you bought.  Trust me I can make 80-120k per every few games (although my average credit income over the entire session is more like 50-60K) quite often however, if I could I would pay to increase that by 50%.
