The way the economy is now, you have to have a premium account and some sort of premium tank to earn some decent credits in. but for the gamers who don't and cannot buy premium are getting shafted to the max and therefore is making less higher tier players and mm is a shambles.
even when you get a victory and a couple of kills in a tier 10 match you still might lose credits, now how can that be?. ok fair enough you might not have done any damage and you die and the team wins, that would definetly earn you a loss in credits in your tier 10 tank. The game was so much more balanced and fun before the economy got nerfed.

What is the real reason behind WG nerfing the economy?.
Does this affect the style of gaming or the way you play?
Having less players with higher tier vehicles makes MM a shambles?

You do not have to have a premium account and/or premium tank to earn decent credits you just have to really good and that is the point of it.

i think you have miss read what im trying to say here. thx for your reply.
basically im saying the economy is making people play less and less of thier tier 10 tanks, therefore tier 10 mm is a shambles.
im telling you right now you need a premium account and a premium tank to keep your tier 10 tanks rolling for public matches.

It is their way of gaining money...simple as that. Plus, if you do not run premium tanks/account, get some low tier tanks such as tier 5s...you will have to grind it out that way. WG designed the game to be free to play, but once you get higher up in battles, free to play still is in effect, just now it is MUCH harder to maintain...and it really is not harming tier 10 MM, you see LOTS of tier 10s running around. Whether those guys have premium accounts is not known, but what IS known is that most tier 10s are designed to be for CW, you only play it in pubs FOR FUN and to get daily doubles in for some extra free xp. If you are still going with free to play and are grinding tier 10, play it just to play it for fun in a pub match. Join CW and use it there since if you win you could hold onto land and get gold...tier 10s are meant to be tanks that are fun and dominating, not meant to make credits, it is designed like that. And it really does not effect my gameplay, I grinded free, non premium, no premium tanks from tier 1 to tier 10, took me about 6 months. Then I got sick of the grind and bought the Type 59 when it was available, now I don't have to worry about credits. Honestly, tier 10s are not meant to gain money what so ever, they are made to LOSE money so you are forced to grind low tiers or buy premium tanks...it is WG's way to make money, please note that WG company has to MAKE MONEY in order to develop the game...if you are a free loader...it is great since you are taking advantage of the good old, "F2P" concept, but you just have to bite it and grind it. WG has to make money too you know?

the tier 10 mm is in shambles? then why the hell is it that my tier 8 tanks see nothing but tier 10 tanks, and my tier 9 tank is almost always on the bottom of the player list?

Amen, IS-3 with the D-25t gun cannot even pen the side of the IS-4 if it is SLIGHTLY angled...the new MM actually made top tier grinds worst because now you are faced with more tier 10s.

all my tanks make money,
Admittidly i do lose money in bad games on my tier 10 tanks and tier 8 arty but over the course of a evening i will make 200-300k credits just playing tier 10 tanks.

i think its great that bad players cant continuously play there tier 10 tanks as it means that tier 10 battles are filled with higher skilled players and maybe 1 or 2 lower skilled ones who are getting there double in a top tier tank.

Reasons for nerfing tier x earning credit ability :

1. MM will be unable to work properly if all players keep playing tier x. After matchmaking all tier x, arty party will be held by tier 9 & 8 arty.

2. WG will make huge income by selling premium a/c and/or tanks.

Sorry OP, your flat out wrong. Players are playing tier10, and the GOOD players profit just fine, however it's 40-47%'ers that fail their way into a TierX that make the battles less enjoyable. They are the ones who go broke, and for this I applaud WG for helping to keep end tier as SCRUB free as possible....

Your mistake is thinking a couple of "kills" means something. It means nothing if those 2 kills were on a tank lower tier then you, and had say 50HP left.  You get money from how much damage you do, and the tier of those tanks. My MAUS on a win always makes me money as long as i am not dead in first 30 seconds of the game. It is not alot of money, but it covers the repairs, and ammo with a couple K left over. Now a loss? well a loss in game means a loss in cash unless you do dam well in the game. As in got in about 10 good pen, good damaging shots. I think after 7.5 payout is a little higher, but it could still use some improvment.

I got the point you don't seem to.

If you go out and do enough damage you can play tier 10 all you want and make money you do not need premium anything if you do that. It is pretty simple... the game economy rewards good players as it should.

I dont, and I am still making a profit regardless of which tier or tank I play. I will say that some tier10's seem to profit more then others, but in the end, consistent good gameplay is always rewarded.

Dont need one, but the fact that YOU are being driven out of tier10 matches is enough to make me smile ear to ear! Looks like WG's end tier economics is

"WORKING AS INTENDED"

And most wonder why i don't pull a tier 10 out the garage unless it's for CW.  Grinding a tier 10. just quicker to:
