I just recently bought a Lowe to feed my ISU-152 and I can say I've made 60k credits on a losing game. Winning gives me 80k + credits, maybe having a tiger 2 as experience before hand helped me.

I still make between 75k and 120k on a win, around 40-50 if I lose.

I make everywhere from 25k to 110 000k in Loewe.

Lately I've been making more money on defeats than victories. Or so it seems.

Fine by me, lol.

I actually used it together with Panther 2, Leo and Pz 5/4 to make enough money to buy IS7 in the last three days. So that's 6 million credits in 3 days.

Nice match.  How'd you take 16 hits and only lose 400 hit points?  Judging by the tanks you killed, they had plenty of firepower.

Just got lucky I suppose not really sure. They hit me in the track's alot and did no damage and also with this recent patch I have noticed some odd things. Like the sound of being shot but no damage being done not even on my equipment lol. Had a good team for once as well.

Hmmm-according to my calculator 1650-961=689, lol.  Still a great match tho.

The reaper medal means that you 1 shotted at least 3 tanks, and you couldn't have 1 shotted the tanks in your kill list from 100%, meaning that you killed tanks with low HP.
You only did 15% base defense, not that much.

The Lowe's credit earning seems the same to me.  I did, however, manage to lose credits in a match with the Lowe a couple days ago.  A scout spotted me and two arty hit me.  The instant death plus my high-octane fuel consumable made me go into the negative on the round.

:lol:

I'm finding my lowe's credits have almost been halve since 6.5. I haven't made over 60k. I had a game before, 1.7k exp, and 42,000 something credits.
Next game was in my king tiger.. 1.4k exp and 43,000 credits.

Lowe is making less than other t8 heavies for me.. :\

stop hunting stuff 2-3 tiers below you and start shooting other tier 7-9s. The game seems to balance earnings based on the threat level of your target, and frankly nothing you killed could do diddly to you. Similarly as stated dont 1-2 shot the last 300 HP off someone and expect a high five from the credit gods. Damage < Kill Credit.

Follow-up to my previous post...

I started playing the Lowe more to test it and it does seem like the credit earning has been decreased a lot.  Before 6.5 I was earning and average of 60k credits per battle...now it's an average of 40k.

Many people bought this tank for its earning potential.  A change to this makes no sense for balance reasons and seems unfair at the very least.  I was considering getting the KV-5 and T34 premium, I think I'll keep my money.

Oh no, now im buying mine so no.

Besides, the tank isn`t great at anything:

if is for experienced players, all non-premium tier 8tanks are better.
if is for new players, is a shit of tank cause they do not use it properly.

Now im buying the shit (and probably everyone does so) for the money it makes, cause no way in hell that shit is better than my King Tiger and even my Tiger.

I don't know, bought the Lowe after the patch and I regularly get 60-70k (before expenses) on losing matches where I have 0 kills.  Haven't had any awesome games with it yet so I am not a huge fan of the tank other than it's credit farming ability, like my IS-3 a lot more.
