I destroy tanks, making damage and win the battle but I am losing credits.  What's up with that?

credits depend on a bunch of things. higher tier tanks cost more money to fix, some tanks have appalling credit coefficients (see : "updated credit coefficients for update 6.9" ) and some tanks have expensive ammo/premium ammo. 

in essence, a tier X is more expensive than a tier IX,

a tank with a high credit coefficient will get more credits,

and if you spam premium ammunition you will lose more credits..

Your damage per battle is very low.  You aren't doing enough damage to help your team and you aren't doing enough damage to earn credits.  

 

For instance, you have 10 games in the T1 Heavy, but less than 400 damage per battle.  The T1 is OP and should easily be doing 2x that.

Every tank has some unique numbers that determine how much money it makes. This is called its "credit coefficient". Premium tanks have a higher credit coefficient and tech tree tanks have a lower one generally. 

 

Premium time increases your credits per battle by 50%.

Taking damage costs repairs after battle.

Doing more damage in a tank that that has a good credit coefficient cures a multitude of ills. It’s a balance between the tank you do more damage in and the tank with the best coefficient. . You can find the credit coefficients here http://forum.wotblitz.com/index.php?/topic/58556-updated-credit-earnings-for-65-missing-a-few-new-tanks/

You can also find them here  https://tank-compare.blitzstars.com/.  Elsewhere on https://www.blitzstars.com/ you can examine the average damage per battle and other stats on your tanks actual performance.

 

it’s also worthwhile to examine the credits section of your battle report. Is your ammo cost high because you forget to switch back to AP? Do you need a camo resupply cost onthe T1? Keep everything you need and cut what you don’t need.


 

This is what you get for letting rednecks play with antimatter, boss.

We haven’t had a non-burb visit in some time and we used to get them often. Was this fate or is there more to this story???

Look at the details tab?

 

You pay for the damage to your tank, the consumables used, camouflage, provisions and ammo used.

 

While you get paid for doing damage. 

 

The more damage you do and the better you play, the more money you will make. 

 

But you are only doing 0.5 damage, so you don’t earn much.

You pay a lot in repairs, because you die 70% of the time. 

 

Play smarter and harder to earn more. Do 2x damage instead of 0.5 of your own tank’s hitpoints, run a premium tank on premium time and credits will flow.

Looking at your stats, it is revealed that the only truth in your claim is that your are likely losing credits.

Put out more damage and take less in return. It's really simple.

No I'm not defending German technical superiority, I'm stating the ****ing obvious!

The hp of the tank your in should be your rough approximation of the damage needed to break even/ be a positive contribution. Start there. :bush:

Because apparently you haven’t understood any aspect of this game.

the good part is that you can fix it.

the bad part is that only you can fix it.

 

sorry about being caustic, it’s time for my medication.

 I just dove into this game and I am learning as I go. I see now that I had auto resupply on.  I was using the premium ammo and spending more then I was earning.  Got it.  Thanks 

 

Tedg5 is that your plane?
