   Like most soviet med tankers, I love the T-54. For me, the highlight of the entire line. So when I heard of update 2.8 adding the new provisions system, I was naturally very exited to further trick-out my tank. But as I was grinding the the T-62a, I started to niotice a pattern. Almost no matter how well I played, I couldn't seem to earn any credits. Even in 3,000 damage games, I would still lose around 2,000 credits. Naturally curious, the next time I battled, I checked my credit profitability. I found that the main reason I was losing so many credits was because of my ammo resupply (I don't shoot alot of heat). After a little research, I discovered that the the ammo on the D-54 gun is very expensive—1,230 credits a piece. Usually this would not be an issue, but because of the profitability changes to accommodate the new provisions (12% profitability decrease; 50% repair cost decrease), the cost of the ammo has become much more evident. In other words, because the profitability has been decreased, you earn less credits, because you earn less credits, you have less to pay for the same amount of ammo, wich was expensive to begin with. (And I'm afraid the repair cost decrease hasn't helped much). 

 

 

(I'm adding this bit for reference) 

Consumables: Repair kit and First Aid kit

Provisions: Protective kit

Ammo: 48 rounds AP; 2 rounds HEAT

I use D-54 gun

 

edit: IS-7 ammo is 1,118 credits.

Stop using provisions and it will get better, I make 10-12k per game after a couple of heat rounds

You have to play as a cheapskate. The t54 ks a rare tank i can make credits on. Use d54 so you dont have to spam HEAT. Take less damage and dont waste shots and consumables. I can make some profit from it.

If you're playing the T-54 to earn credits, you're playing to lose. 

 

If you would like to win here's what I recommend:

Consumables: Multi-Repair, Adrenaline, Repair Kit

Provisions: Super Fuel, Super Rations, Small Fuel

Equipment: VStabs, Rammer, Vents

Ammo: 10AP/38HEAT/2HE

Ok u take heat to an extreme I high doubt you need that much. The problem with heat is this

you have 50 degrees of traverse and yet you just sit behind a ridge and spam heat to pen that t95 instead of clircling
Im not blaming you specifally

I don't take unnecessary risks. I'd much rather snipe away at a T95, at a distance that he can't even hit me, than have to risk myself to get closer and possibly get hit before I even get to him. That's how you go from a "wannabeunicum" to a "real unicum."

"I've supported this game for too long. There are too many frustrations with playing this game. And I believe that it's not worth playing anymore. This is not because of Update 3.8. I have been losing interest in this game for a while now. I believe that it is time for me to put the game down and finally move on with life. A big thanks to the forums for helping me on the road to 60%, and sometimes giving me a good laugh. o7."
