Hoping one of you Blitz scientists (e.g. Positive) can explain precisely how credit booster yields are determined.  I know you get more for winning than losing, but does tier matter?  Is payout a function of experience earned?  ETC... 

 

Anyone who has studied this and would like to share, it would be most helpful.  PS don't just send me to the WG description that shows ranges, that's not what I'm asking.  Thanks in advance,

Shady

I'm tempted to be a smart*ss and link to the WG description but that would require 10 seconds of research which I am morally opposed to.

 

Why'd you change your name?  I was a big fan of shadynasty.

I thought credit boosters just gave your a random amount between the min and max value of the booster.  That is doesn't matter whether you win or lose, or even if you are using premium or anything else.  I'm pretty sure it's just a flat extra amount of credits.

With confidence I can conclude

 

Credit boosters do NOT boost your credit score.

No direct correlations found in the studies I have conducted

Pretty sure this is what it is. Could be totally wrong. 


Find me on the official Blitz discord server or send me a PM on the forums if you want to contact me. I quit playing. Yeah.

This is the correct answer.

As with Mav and A_S, I agree with you although I was under the impression that the "random" amount is generally larger when you play in higher tiers. I have no evidence to provide in support of this.

Hey thanks for the replies.  I'm surprised winning or losing doesn't matter or tier but hey that makes decision making pretty straightforward about when to use... anytime.

One takeaway is that you should use the lowest tier credit boosters.  I tend to combine all mine, pop an hour premium cert and use the highest tier boosters to grind, but since the credit booster isn't paid on percentage it makes more sense to use the lowest tier as soon as you get them.  

 

I'm assuming there is no bonus for using premium with credit boosters.

OK,, I thought they worked out like the XP boosters, but now that I am convinced I am wrong... Is there a benefit to combining boosters? Because like Cletus_ I too have been saving mine for a decent credit earner + Premium time when I am close to unlocking the next tier.

Combining boosters you actually lose some of the overall value.  It makes sense for guys like me with limited playing time to combine them, the combined boosters give you more bang for your buck.  But if you play a lot using the lowest tier boosters is more economical.  

 

Of course, this thread has convinced me that combining my credit boosters has been a mistake, I will start running the lowest tier credit boosters as I get them.

I got to this point about a month back. After years of cultivating and combining the boosters to keep my storage organized I stopped. At first it aggravated the crap out of my OCD but I'm finally over it. They are used as they come in. 


Here's to taking everything in moderation --- including moderation

I always pictured him as the type of dude who ran a strip joint named Lickety Splitz, and I was green with envy. 


It's a game, not a d!ck.   Don't take it so hard.

Shadynasty is from an episode of Always Sunny, one of my favorite shows.

I'm running premium right now. On the results screen for credits I see "Credits Earned" then the next line is "With Booster" which is another amount that is added to the total. The booster amount is the same in the "without premium" and "with premium" columns. 

 

It is a just a flat number of extra credits. 

 

Even when your tank has a birthday and you get X2 credits, that X2 only applies to the base credits earned. The booster amount is added after the X2 is calculated. 

 

You earn fewer credits overall if you combine boosters to get higher grade boosters.  It's true of all boosters, combining them is a loss.

If you use the Commons that you would spend to convert to Epics will give you 18,000 - 82,000 credits, Rares will give you 15,000 - 70,000

Great stuff guys, thank you.  I asked the question because I was unclear and because I'm so credit broke I'm actually buying the 10 for 120 gold epic boosters.

Why? Collect your daily crates and Complete your daily missions and you should have that.
