You could sling gold exclusively, miss half the time and still make 40-50k in a premium tier 8.

Those days are gone now...lol.

 

The normalized economy means activating boosters a bit more often. That equipment sale really took the stuffing out of the mattress...lol. I wanted to spend 15M, ended up spending about 40M. ouch!

 

How much are you guys going to miss the bonus period? Did you even care?

Unfortunately I didn't take enough advantage of it.   Was up to 50% for Free XP and 40% for the rest, yet only managed 2-3 sessions a week of about 1-1.5 hours.  Only over this past Saturday (when the consumables/equipment sale was announced) did I run premium 8's with a credit booster - was a nice 700k net in the hour.

+1

 

When a big bonus is gone you get sad if you are a new player. But a long time player doesn't even bat an eye. The reason is that credits are a moot thing anyway really. What people really wanted who play the game a lot was an equipment sale. That was what they really wanted because even without bonuses if you play right the credits will stack up. I am almost glad that we lost the XP bonus because I unlocked so many new tanks that I was broke anyway despite the credit bonus increase. Heck I still have some tanks to buy but I ran out of credits. Now, i can just play normally again and let the credit pile up over time like they always do. 

 

What sucks is that they made it so easy to unlock the lower tiers that I am almost always broke in this game anyway just buying tanks and equipment. But now that front-line is going to be a standard thing, I can just have fun and make credits there and once again be ready for another big equipment sale in a few months. This next time though, I should be REALLY ready for it.

I wish boosters were still handed out like candy.   I'm darn near out, except for some experience boosters, and there's only about 15 of them left. 

 

There was a point those boosters were rolling in so fast i had 400+ and stayed there.   RIP good times, back to the mines.

courtesy of spamming games in various premiums during that time period (over 500 combined in the EBR and ELC Even 90)  I'm now sitting over 73m credits.

 

I don't really have any active grinds in place other than a casual grind on the Conq and WZ-111-1-4.

 

I'm at ~30 or so days of premium time left, and with only a couple of exceptions I am pretty judicious with premium ammo.  I also tend to play tiers 6-9 which all have much lower repair costs than tier 10s.

 

so. no, it's not really gonna impact me a ton, other than I won't be making 3-5m credits per day like I was....

Wish I could sell you some of my boosters.  Im over 2k of them.

Right? I have 322 boosters that I earned over 2 years ago. I just never use them. So you get 3-4 games in an hour. Some boost! I'm supposed to get excited for a 1hr boost that will only be active for about 3-4 games? No, I will just have to play a little more premium tanks than just grind tanks that's all. Old time players like me grew up when you never spammed premium rounds because you needed as many credits as you could get and there were never any bonuses for it. Now, they have more bonuses in this game than you can shake a stick at.

A LOT !!!

 

Especially since I spent almost all of my 70 million credits on the sale ....

 

Made some back today though. Finally got around to enabling the "return equipment to vehicle" in XVM so I could sell of a ton of camo nets and binocs (I was too lazy to keep track of them and ended up buying a whole bunch) and that along with selling off a bunch of large rep/med kits and auto extinguishers means I'm back up to my minium comfort level

 

Despite WG stumbling a bit here and there it's easily the best time of the year

yea i heard they were thinking of "adjusting" the credit economy of FrontLines.if so, i just wont play it as much. i liked playing with no prem ammo loaded up,so resupply costs were low. ergo,credits were earned at higher rate.

Nope... There is no nerf to the frontline economy.  

 

"XP and Credit earn rates remain the same in next year’s Frontline; repair and shell costs won't change either."

Source = https://worldoftanks...sneak-preview/   (about halfway down at the bottom of the post about frontlines)

 

Then again the mutant was never to be sold again, WG would never threaten a CC for simply expressing their opinion, and Tankrewards is only on a temporary break.  Take WG's word for what it's worth... :sceptic:

I take it math was not your best subject in school.

 

I take it math wasn't your good point. A battle is 15 minuets. If you fight it out to the last, then often you are in battle for at least 10 minuets. It often takes 2-3 minuets just to get in a battle before it even starts. So, even if you hit battle right away, if you fight to the end for the win, often you are still in battle time of 15 minuets. If one game goes to the final few minuets of the battle timer then now you have basically used 20 minuets of time counting the 2-3 minuets of loading and waiting for start. At best 5-6 games if you spam it and immediately jump into another tank. But then again, if you YOLO fail every game then sure, I can see where you would think 3-4 battles in an hr is too small.
