Another under-thought-out and cynical cash grab by WG. I can hardly give a rip anymore and that is WHOLLY due to WG’s abusive managment. They clearly hold us in contempt and disdain, based upon their actions. I put ZERO stock into what outward-facing comms may say. 

How to stop losin credits? Get the newbs to buy more Premium time and tanks so that they can increase the number of total wasters in high tiers. 

WG, again, for the 80th time in as many months: make the lower tiers as engaging and robust as the higher tiers that you are ruining. I know that it is more cost-effective to sell everyone, regardless of aptitude, the same high tier tank product. It is also abusive of the playerbase and common decency. 

Stick em with the big TOE Meatlocker!

As a 7-1/2 player that is a F2P that only plays tiers 9-10, I am sure glad I have almost 84-million credits in the bank.  Without premium time it is dang near impossible to hold even on credits on a daily basis. With premium time I can generally move in the positive direction most days.  I don’t fire much prammo, only when it’s really needed, so not going to sweat that aspect much.  Not sure what WG’s end game is here, but they’ve screwed the proverbial pooch again with this maneuver.

Messed around and played a few games.  Definitely interesting that my M41D Jade only would have net 1k credits on F2P mode on a loss versus 17k on Premium.  Granted it was a loss and I didn't manage a ton of damage with my 76mm but I digress.  Crazy times.

- Speaking of Premium Time, its almost half as effective as before. When you're only able to make 30k credits w/o Premium vs the 50k credits before in a decent game for a normal Tier 10, the 50% bonus from Premium Time is earning the player much less credits. Really, really insulting to players that have hundreds or thousands of days of Premium saved up, and were expecting its value not to be diminished. It used to be that Premium Time would allow players to net a significant amount of credits, now it's hardly able to keep a battle go positive. This was something I knew was going to happen in 8.5 no matter what, I couldn't play this down and won't now either.



Obvious in retrospect but I completely overlooked this until after my first couple battles. Got about 100 days left on PT. Now that I've researched most lines in the game, extending it doesn't seem worthwhile.

I didn’t appreciate that the update just dropped without a heads up. With the new credit co-efficient’s, we could have all emptied our ammo and repair items to “save up” for the impending loss. It’s update 3.h8 (2.0).

I will stop playing as a newer player. I will be in the hole soon on credits if I keep going negative after each battle. If I stay at tier 4 then I can  break even. I am a low skill player and feel I will not be playing if there is no possibility to earn credits. Thanks and good bye War Gaming.

Looks like they essentially made the Tech tree Tanks Painfully expensive.  Which is what WG always wanted,  Tech tree = better,  prem makes Bank...

That's how my numbers are shaking out....I have been tracking all my games for a while on certain tanks and the prem are now making money as I expected once the ammo/repair cost were removed.  

Prem Ammo is supposed to be expensive,  Provisions are supposed to be expensive anything that makes the tank perform = $$$$

Low level Provision can be supported by Prem account
High Level Provision can be supported by Prem + Boosters...

Just how I see it...

you need to make at least 2K damage to make any money on the Tech Tree if you want to use anything

Its about getting players to pay $$$$ 

Prem Tanks = $$$$
Prem Account = $$$$
Boosters = $$$$$

You literally get more credits by doing worse- if that makes any sense 

Doing 0 in a sp gives you 20k 

While I was barely getting 40k in t8 prems with 3k dmg

Another "milestone" for this game.

Indeed we will remember it......will WOTB ?


I don't need to repeat all of the above (including all the no sense buffs for HT......I guess we will see a lot of these due the new -  another ingenious system - balance approach) and......

note that I'm sitting on several hundred millions credits as the OP.


When you think WOTB already did the worse possible they will always be able to surprise you.......

I guess I lucked out.  I saw a post on Facebook about the update time and dumped all my ammo prior to the update.  Made 3 million credits.

So from what I understand, you can't even make credits having good games in non premium tanks while you have a premium account on? I don't really need to care since I have to many credits, but that is really stupid. I think we should start a petition to outlaw Vodka in WG offices.
