Big changes are in store for the game economy in the next major version update. Check more details in this 7.2 update preview.

Full news text

We are pleased to see so many players taking part in the 7.2 test. At the moment there is over 36.000 gamers registered on the server. In order to make your game experience more efficient we need to limit the number of gamers on the server. As a result you could be placed on the waiting list each time we reach 26.000.

Please note that the public test server restarts each day at 2:00 CET (1:00am GMT) and lasts for 25-45 minutes.

Whats the point of this. Tiers 1-4 are an easy grind. The point at which credits become a real problem is tier 6 and they are nerfing that income. Guess this forces more people to spend gold on a tier 8 premium

They are buffing end tier tanks, but nerfing most of the tanks which will fight them...

Yep, nice if you have a top tier tank already... not so nice if you still have to get there.

Yep, they will be nerfing the "free" moneymakers. Everyone knows that the best tiers to make money is tier 5 and 6. So they will be nerfing most tier 6  tanks (and definetely all tier 6 mediums, my favourites  :( ). So, basically, yeah, I believe this will turn out to be just a straight out income nerf, for the non-tier8premium drivers.

I have top tier tanks (T30, IS-7), and I will have more... still I preffer to play lower tier tanks and also I try to get both German Tier 10 tanks...

In my opinion it is jump on gold by WG - they want more people to buy premium accounts and premium tanks.

Hope the T-54 stops being a cash black hole.. Playing 5-6 matches after a loss in that thing just to climb back to 0 is a real pain in the butt. Especially when you are grinding the tank.

Light tanks:ok, i dont drive one but i guess its good.
Medium tanks:E8 gets nerfed, same for t20. Guess ill have to use the kv and/or su-8 sinc they are getting the credit buff.
Heavies:Good for the KV, t1 heavy and BDR G1B but nerf on the others. Owch.
Arties:Since im only going to drive t5 and i dont plan on going higher im happy.
TDs:higher tiers could have stayed as they were.

Ok, one question: why nerf the mid-high tier tanks?? Top tier diserve credit income since it is a stopping point for the lines. Ill stop here and wait to see how the income changes. I just hope you know what youre doing with those, WG.

SPG credit buff - yay! It was recently nerfed (as they admitted it was too fruitful to play with SPGS), now back to normal.

Low tier buff - Medium tier nerf: pretty obvious... beginners didn't buy premiums in low tier, but around medium/hight tier when the credit became a problem. So WG wants the newbies to quickly go through the low tier (no premium buyers) and make sure they sooner reach the point where credit is a problem (and now with the nerf the credit shortage will happen earlier).
It's smells like faster milking of the new people :)


I don't mind they want to make money (heh, Im a premium user anyway) but at least it shouldn't be advertised as an improvement for the players.

They are trying to attract new players into the "lets buy some gold" area... while they give a kick in the ass of regular non-premium players that grind until tier 6-7. Oh, well, you win some, you lose some, that's life. There will be life after WoT as well...

So basicly, tiers 5/6/7/8 credit nerf, 9/10 get more more but basicly remain big credit eaters. Obviously more of business move than a gameplay one, thanks to the addition of this line to the article:

"Please note that profitability of premium vehicles of tier 5 and above will not change."

*puts on sad face*

This makes Panther I/II virtually unplayable without premium, even though I usually play with premium I dont think this is good.
So instead of fixing the high tier credit problems, they simply move it down a couple of tiers.

I am really glad I dont have to play the Panther I anymore, because the damage on that thing (credit earning) is terrible due to the 135 dmg cannon.

You know the solution: BUY PREMIUM.

At the end, it is just business.
