This is getting ridiculous. I've even used my Premium Tanks, finished top player in several matches and still losing credits with minimal damage. ****

You have to run everything now. All of this is by design.

You own a victory so if you have problems earning there may be no hope for you

Changes to earnings on some tanks coming up in 3.9

I’ve noticed a strong lack of Spare Parts. Is that intended?

No, it is not. This problem will solve itself with time. Many players have several dozens of vehicles in their Garages, so they don’t have enough Spare Parts for the entire vehicle fleet. But you will gradually collect enough Spare Parts to unlock new slots for purchased tanks in time.

Running One Tank? Problem is all the noobs n the teams, and when others see a victory it's like a BIG OLD BULLS EYE on your Turret.

Meanwhile I'm making a lot of credits on my Type 62, 10% fuel for the laughs, camo because it looks gorgeous and 15 HEAT. :harp:

 

The VK 28.01 is very profitable for a tech tree tank, even though I carry 10 APCR I never use it. Pretty fun tank.

 

The Panzer III/IV is the same story, but after 900+ battles with it I got bored. Makes more credits than some premiums at it's tier.

One think I did when picking tanks to upgrade was to specifically look for tanks that make good credits on a non-premium account.  I did toss in a few that aren't automatic money makers, but most will make credits even in a low damage loss.

I can make 1k-6k silver on T1-4 running cammo, consumables, no premium and using no prammo with a non-premium tank.  Not saying it's ideal or not a grind, but it's possible.  WG wants you to make just enough to be hungry for more.  Which is fine because it is F2P.  All this is besides the point of the 3.8 b!tchslap to the community's face.

I'm making loads of credits.... 20k to 30k per game in the M4. Missions are a good source of income, especially in higher tiers.

HYD,

 

After a match, do you look at the details tab? Credits specifically?  If so - where are most of your credits going?   That might be able to help you find spots you can cut costs.  Maybe you find out you are shooting more pramo than you first thought - or that those Provisions are just too expensive.

 

Anyway - let us know what's eating up your credits and we can give more tailored advice.

 

 

Peace-

Boris

Your point being? I have 380 day of premium time left, but you can get PT from missions. I have 3 months worth of PT sitting in certificates. Also my M4 is permanently enriched.

I do! And this is for each of my tanks. It's for equipment mostly. I rarely shoot Pramo.

How much are you getting without Premium? I bet barely breaking even.

Equipment?  You don't get charged for equipment each match.

 

So .. what is your biggest cost in  a match?

I just checked my notifications, and in the last 10 battles I made credits in all but 1 where I lost 900.  I made a total of about 120,000 credits.  Of course, all 10 were in premium tanks. 

 

This was on a non-premium account, with some, but not full provisions.  Camo was equipped on the tanks in 7 of the 10 battles.
