I have noticed all of my tank from tier 5-8 are making about 25-50% less silver than before the patch, on the other hand it seems I am making more free xp.

There were some nerf/buff changes for income, but it wasnt a big cut across the board.. I believe the ez8 and jumbo got nerfed, Lowe got buffed, dont remember the rest. There was a thread a week ago that listed all the changes, or you can look at the 8.0 update notes. Search function is your friend.

Not really feeling much of a credit buff from my Lowe, but I'm not really seeing any reduced income either...

A lot of silent credit nerfs were in this patch.

WORKING AS INTENDED.

Well more balanced game means a bigger spread of contributors.
If your getting less on same damage with same tank,  its hard to prove because pay is also determined by tier mix.
Two tier limit.
But that can't explain some weird IS6. Paydays.
So yes I admit it feels off a bit,  but then I rip off a 98k match.
And am NOT expecting it.  It feels like 60-70 range.
Then I have wrecking ball match and get 44 k.
Expecting 100 k .
So lucy you got some splainin to do.
Whats up with income?
Btw - nice to see in a pub the advice,  
If AP isn't working use gold ridgid ammo ..lololol.
Sure ok,  why not ..

For me the lowe makes good still but i rarely have those 120 k credit games i use to have often due to the much easier matches pre 7.5 where you could easily see a bunch of tier 5s not to leave off the much easier Kv5 before the buff....so since they increased it by 10 percent  they also made it harder to be king of the hill with harder matches.

Haven't noticed credit nerfs. Still make roughly 20k profit in my MBP and a decent profit when playing my other tanks.

After the patch, it seems that my T29 is making less.  So much so, that I lost money on a couple of victories.  It wasn't much, less than 1K, but all the same that has NEVER happened before, esp. since I play premium.  Otherwise, everything else seems fine.

I am earning considerably less in my tanks. I expected a nerf for the Jumbo, but I've noticed a drastic drop with every other tank I have as well; M8A1, T49, SU-26, ELC,... you name it. My performance hasn't changed appreciably, but my credit earnings seem to be ~2/3 what they were. The Detailed Reports after the battle show what I would earn with Premium, and those numbers are about what I used to earn without... and with things like that going on, I reconsidered buying Premium and decided to spend my gaming money elsewhere.

of course they nerfed the credit income. combined with this stupid after battle report ( which is in fact nothing else but simple marketing for : Buy premium account and your life will be in game so much easier ) it should push more people into prem accounts. a nice idea is, to decrease the sliver and let you make the uplevel. then you can unlcok the next level boom boom maker, but can t afford it ;-). may be you want to try a premium tank or premium account now ? lol

the only sense thi shooter has is, to make money. everything else is not realy special , always the same. has nothing to do with tank battles and since they def changed the game int o a simple arcade shooter the player base changed dramatic with the result that the pubbies most of the time are without any team effect

so yes, silver reduced  
xp too

combined with this stupid bouncing and a lot of more ghost rounds...

We are not scrubs, please refrain from name calling. We are trying to have prodcutive conversation here. If you have nothing more to add then move on.

You have to also add in the normalization factor.   More armor angle = more bounces = more wasted or very low damage shots = less damage per game = less creds per game = more creds spend on replacing ammo = more not so subtle encouragement from WG for you to buy premium to offset that.

I haven't noticed any discernible credit income change, but I am using a regular account with regular tanks.

I am too, so it's not Premium or the premium tanks. I might be able to understand this is the normalization changes caused a reduction in my Average Damage or XP, but the only thing that had changed is my credit earnings.

Sadly true, have to agree with you.
