Is it my idea or TDs are under persecution in game? 
Since recentlly I was playing ScorpionG and Strv S1 to earn credits. I have more than 6000 battles with both of them. What I 've noticed is that both TDs are not the money makers they used to be. 
Last changes on maps destroyed all good spots especially for Strv S1. Scorpion G on the other hand is spotted much easier than before. Everyone in my clan has the same experiences. 
Perhaps we' ve forgot how to play or is it something else?
I saw today Strv S1 in sales and my advice to all they dont have it in my clan is NOT to buy as isnt worth anymore.
Am I wrong? Perhaps. ....

Play them in FL or TBs all you want. You'll fight tier 8s only and you can respawn in FL. Making credits in randoms is not ideal these days.

Well, I only play TDs and I have close to 60,000,000 credits.  Most of which I have generated in the last 12 months.

SkorpG is IMX weak in tier-10 battles. Spotted way to easily to survive long. :(

I can understand it might suck if your favorite sniping/camping positions are nerfed, but honestly, agressive plays are punished enough currently. Especially if you have loads of newish players who don't yet know which these positions are. 

So what you get is people don't want to play the agressive role anymore after they have been punished for the 10th time. And the result is more td's all looking for the same spots.

 

So yeah, just learn to play a premium heavy/med/light. Way more fun than just sitting in the same spot the whole battle and just farming.

Yep, just play a heavy going to the same designated heavy corner and just farm.

Or play a medium and go to the same designated medium flank and just farm.

Or even better, play a light and go to the same designated bush and farm assist.

Everything you thought you know will be thrown out the window once you try these revolutionary tactics.

Thank you all for your replies and your advices, but all i wanted was a comfimation about my thought. Unfortunately it has been confirmed. I know very well what to do but the game is heading in a direction I dont like. "Shoot them all - Kill them all" isnt my style nor what am I looking for. I see game loosing its depeath and turning into a "run and shoot" nonsense. I suggest to WoT to bann TDs and artilery from the game and keep only meds and lights. Heavies can be static targets and wish you all to enjoy it Might be an awesome game but would have not anything to do with real tank battles

Hiding in a bush at the back of the map all game in some OP base camping ledge is not 'depth', its pretty much the most simple/easiest way of playing the game outside of arty and maybe the old Type 5. 

 

Hardly challenging for some else to do all the work, make all the plays, and you just camp all game waiting for them to try to win the game.

 

If you are having trouble with TDs it has very little to do with the game and everything to do with how you are playing them.

Remember TD players once the masses are done convincing WG SPG's need nerf upon nerf they will come for you next!

Td's have had a couple of the biggest nerfs in the game first camo removal after firing and then the massive view range nerfs.

TDs are still good if you know what you do.

The problems are, ino:

WG have also created super strong TD camping positions on all new or remade maps while also removed all possibilities for TDs  (especially low armoured casement TDs) to do anything else then camp in those positions.

You're earning less credits because you're not meeting tier 10 tanks as often anymore. (due to long-awaited MM changes)

 

I wouldn't complain about it...it's for the greater good and you still make a sweet profit.

There's been map changes in the past half-year or something? :amazed:

This, on the other hand, is a far more likely cause for the OP's reduced credit income.

All the more recent maps and reworks get insanely dumb and OP sniper spots for TDs. Claiming the opposite is a lie.

 

Also no. Their income has not been touched.

Great for defence but hard to become a carry tank when things advance

I feel you - I've seen those top tier assault-tds in far back sniping positions as well.....
