Even though I killed 4 tanks and damaged or hit many, I still get 10.000 deficit. Why it still happens? Is it just me or Frontline tries to take your credits away so you must pay to win or never play Frontline?

 

Edit: I used most T32 FL

I just wonder how you can lose credits when I always get 100k netted credits (at least)

Jeeze Louise.  I've made anything from 180k to 520k

 

Some on a loss.  

 

Never a loss in this mode.  So. You're doing it wrong

?? how on earth are you losing money in this mode? literally the smallest amount I've made is 90k and usually its around 2-300k? Use a prem tank if you have one and don't use prem ammo. you literally make money hand over fist.

Post some battle results, how much of your shooting isn't doing any damage?

Hmmm are you saying I didn't? 

 

Or anyone else that thinks the mode is lucrative?

I just had a stinker where I simply couldn't get involved in the fighting and only did 2k damage with 3k assist and a solo cap, still made about 80k profit, though I was playing premium tanks on a premium account.

Yep.  T-44-100.  STA2, S1 (On defence) or Skorp G. 

 

Might even pop a 50% cash thingy tonight.  And milk the feck out of it.

What? I make 160K to 250K on most games non premium. Unless you run only HT's, spam gold ammo and use premium consumables that is.

I regularly do between 8k and 12k damage and the most profit I've seen is 42K.
This is with a non premium account, using the "FL" tanks supplied by WG, 75% AP loadout, non premium consumables and no food.
Considering I make over 100K in randoms with premium account and premium tanks, I can see that this mode would be extremely lucrative for players in that situation, however, from my experience I can see how it wouldn't be for less experienced players and non premium players.

Makes me wonder if those FL tanks only have a regular credit multiplier rather than the higher level you get on a premium tank. I wouldn't be surprised, it'd be unlike WG to give us free clones of regular tanks and premium credit earning.

You have to be a good-nub or fairly unlucky to get into negative with this mode. If you don't shot gold, then even on regular t8s you should at least break even w/o prem account.. I drive is-m and it does not get negative.

Okay then. How much damage do you do each life? If you lose all your HP and you only got a shot or two in. It's not gonna matter much. Kills is only a small bonus. It's the damage you do that counts. And if lose more HP then you do damage, then it's easy to explain. As most here make 100K with 10K damage and assist combined at least.

OP is right. My first and only (and last) FrontLine game gave me 94.000 credits, 28.000 credits short from my spending. I run no premium account and had no credits reserves activated, but did play the Progetto while in the game. Also, In my IS3 I have 4 premium rounds, which I used twice, so 8 premium rounds fired in total. Still, ammo + repairs + consumables =  123.000 credits..... :unsure:

Before going on a rant, it would be really helpful in such cases to have images of the detail screen (or upload replay, but don't think the format is supported by replay sites yet?)

There seems to be a big separation between some folks earnings & would be neat to know why that is. More information helps alot in determining the differences.

 

Note; myself i didn't had a credit loss game yet, Frontline is earning me good credits, while using KV-4 as main creditmaker, with Lowe on the side.

Has anyone said that they were intended to act like premium tanks with the associated benefits?  Or was an assumption made somewhere?  When I saw the tanks in garage I just assumed they were free to use T8 tanks for those that don't have T8 tanks, but I could be wrong.

You are doing something very wrong.

 

I´m netting between 200-300k per game.
