So, I do not have a premium account at the moment, and joined my clans advances for the past two nights. We have the 75% financial bonus active. I was figuring that maybe i would come out slightly ahead. Not so. 

While it is true that in one battle i DID net 70k, in most battles my losses were substantial. Even on a win, i had battles where i lost approximately 50k in credits. Over two runs (somewhere around 13 battles?) I lost a net of 250k. 

Now there are some obvious old truisms: never play tier X to earn credits, and never play tier X at all unless you have a premium account. Nevertheless, i thought 75% bonus would make up for it. 

Nope.

I bought 360 days of premium time last Thanksgiving on Black Friday for $46, sorry you missed out on that.

 

Less than 13 cents per day is pretty  ****  cheap.

It's really not that difficult to fund tier 10 tanks using lower tiers, even without a premium account.

I'm an incredibly average player, don't shoot premium rounds in my tier X tanks, and if I lose I lose 40-70k credits even with my premium account.  Of course "Git Gud" is the best solution but until that happens if I want to play tier X it'll be a "bend over and take it" proposition.

Um ok...guys this is not about platooning or anything other than Advances. I am concerned about the economy on this game mode, since traditionally Strongholds (which advances is an outgrowth of), was a way for people to make credits.

I am not sure that it is currently working as intended.

Tier VI, and kinda VIII's were capable credit farms.  Tier X skirmishes and stronghold battles were just as credit poor as doing Clan Wars.

Right. But with 75% bonus (which the majority of tier X clans will probably have) should, i thought, have made up for it.

I'm a little surprised it's not working for you however keep in mind this is early testing phase for the "new" strongholds. They also adjusted the box price of the bonuses but didn't boost the box earnings much for the various tiers in skirmish. I expect this and possibly earnings(or rewards to offset, see news about War Games Testing) will be adjusted as they move forward, but without a WG employee in the know to address your question I'm just guessing here.

Yeah, last night i made a mill credits at tier 10 playing the Maus APCR spaming, and a 113 heat spaming. We had 1 win, 1 draw, and 1 loss. So like i dont see how you keep lossing credits? Like i take some blind shots too. Then tonight i got to play in only 2/3 and we tech won the 1st then 4-0 the second, and i made only 500k. So i dont see the problem you are having.

What tanks are you playing?   Some tanks, particularly autoloaders with HEAT (cough 57 cough), can lose metric craptons of credits.  Also depends on what consumables you burn through and how many battles you run.

 

Most of the time when I poll post-battle people are making between 50-100k profit.  We're only using a 30% or 40% boost too and not the 75% booster.

Well we are using 75% booster, and last night after winning 4 battles in a row, i was up by 97k credits (I am also running prem acct now). I believe i played a maus (apcr) 2 times, a 140 (half and half) and batchat (normal rounds).

 

What is going on? I am waaaaaay under compared to some of you who are speaking up.
