I can barely begin to explain how points are earned in the first place but seems like the methodology has changed - or is it just me?

 

Just played battle where I won, received no damage, plunked several shots into the enemy, including 1 kill, won the battle...but was negative points. Now I've seen that happen before the upgrade for sure and can understand it's possible, but I can't remember seeing so many negative results since after this upgrade. I was also the lower tier tank [4's against 5's]. And the icing on the cake; I was playing at a 2X premium [my first battle of the day]. I'm going to start checking the detailed tab of the scoring when it happens again and see if I can figure out what's going on. Anyone else have this impression?

What points?

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."

You likely mean credits.

You likely have consumables that you used and/or provisions. 

A "few shots" as you put it (kills earn nothing btw) and given the low tier you would not have earned enough damage from those few shots to offset the consumable+provision+camo+ammo costs. 

Go back into the game and take a screen shot of the battle results screen that shows your credit earning. That is the best way to analyze where your credits went.

For what it's worth, kills and the x2 bonus only generate experience, they do not affect credits.

kills do not add much to exp except the damage earned to get the kill.

 

Blitz earning mechanics are the same as PC (except the supremecy mode's unique ahem... features) 

 

Here is a link with a breakdown

Points, credits, yes. The stuff you win [or lose] after a battle. I will check my provisioning, but it hasn't changed for weeks on my tanks.

The credit algorithm has not been changed.

 

There's a link in my sig that has the exact formula for how they are generated, as well as the profitability coefficients of every vehicle in the game.

 

Also, in case you're too lazy to check it out, the only things that matter for credits is damage, tier of your tank, and winning. Spotting, and spotting damage will also give you some credits, as well as capturing the base, but not nearly as much as the first 3.
