Hello everyone, 

I have recently unlock my first T10 tank and I have mixed feelings. 

Certainly it's a great satisfaction, it was a long grinding and the OBJ705 A is a Tank I enjoy to play.

BUT... that's all. When the battle is over I find myself almost Always in negative on credits. And this is not only because sometime you are obliged to use premium ammo. 

Consumables are also very expensive and facing same tier opponent (which is right and fair) means that is quite easy getting damage to module and use repair kit or med kit.

Now I said to myself "this is T10 I need the big consumable BUT at the end of the battle I see - 30 K  and I feel depressed.

So this is my point to WG: please change / fix the economy at least at tier 9 and 10.  Cause after so much time dedicated to grind its a delusion. 

I will be glad to hear other people opinion on this matter. 

Thanks all

Thats why you must play mid tiers to make up for your losses at tier 10.

Tier 10 is costly by design so you will need to play lower tiers to earn credits to fund your tier 10.

It needs to be this way otherwise people would never play lower tiers and there would be tier populating problems.

Working as intended: http://forum.worldoftanks.eu/index.php?/topic/221256-why-do-i-lose-credits-on-every-battle/

 

Wargaming needs players at the middle tiers so new players can reach the current content. They also need players who pay their *edited* employees and servers.

 

Your options:

Grind: Use middle tier vehicles to replenish the credit losses.

Or pay: Use premium tanks and/or premium account to lessen the grind. Alternatively, you can buy credits directly (not recommended).

Totally intentional. You are supposed to play lower tiers to grind creds. It is a useful move to keep all tiers populated. Would be even better, if there wouldn't be such a steep power curve over the tiers.

Unless you are an extremely good player you will lose credits in higher tiers. If everyone would make credits at higher tiers everyone would play TX.

 

Play lower tiers to fund your TX battles or get premium account/premium tanks,

If you want to play T10 you almost always have to run a few mid tier tanks to earn the credits to fund it. That is the system, designed to keep the lower tiers active and the game alive. If all the long timers are playing T10 exclusively, who do the noobs play?

One way to ease the pain of a negative income per T10 battle is to stock up on consumables when they are 50% off.

There should be one of these sales shortly....

You dont need large repair kits or med packs nor automatic fire ext.s. when you play t10. Ive never used them. Only use food, mainly on lights or autoloaders. 

Also. Economy gets better the better you play. Just try to perform as well as possible.

You only need a small repair kit and med kit at T10. I would advise to take an automatic fire extinguisher tho. However the you're just unlucky with the 705A. It's has crappen for both his normal and gold rounds. So even when you're firing gold, you can't pen most ''weakspots'' reliably, non the less it's one of my favourites at tier 10 :)

You can't expect to get EVERYTHING for free in a f2p game, so either open your wallet or do what all the other people do.

buy a premium tier 8 for making credits

buy premium account too

If you play well and you win you can make profit playing tier 10

Premium time is all you need to constantly get positive income from tier 10 battles. This game has no economy. Saying it's broken would mean that there is something to be broken. You have the image and sense of some economy but in reality it's not. All the items are "sold" by the game, their price is fixed by WG not by supply and demand. You can't sell, buy, trade any of your modules, tanks, consumables, silver, gold and so on. You don't own anything by the way. Not even your premium tanks. You basically rent the right to play them for undefined time. Basically until WG decides to change them or close doors. 

The game is designed around being attractive, addictive even but at the same time annoying, specially if you're playing standard account. The goal is to influence your decision through your feelings. Thus to fell in to "buying" premium stuff. Thing is that if you're not careful you can easily fall in to buying frenzy. I do believe that these kind of practices should be illegal or for the very least not be aimed at kids. Thus this game should really be 18+.

Tier X is meant to be expensive.

However, even with large consumerables in all slots you can make 25k silver profit on a battle.

Here is a random one from a few minutes ago;

and the next one was 21k profit and 1st moe

Its not so bad with tier X. Clan boosts covers all expenses. 

But yeah, almost every time when I grind some 4-6M credits on tier VIII premiums - I flush out some 1-2M on FV (183) @ fullgold just for relax and fun.

If top tiers would be profitable no one would be playing lower tiers pretty much.

Guess you are right - probably we could solve the mm situation for tier8 and such by increasing costs for tier 9 and 10 :)
