The ingame money generation system needs an overhaul.
 
It is so broken that it seems WoT is just a mass of corporate greed who cares nothing about its player base. In a t9 tank on a winning team being in the top 3 of dmg done on my team. I lost credits, this is simply unfair and wrong. WoT needs to rethink its pure corporate greed mentality. I understand you are a business. Making money is what you do. But unless i spend 99%of my playing time on my premium tanks to farm money being able to progress in tiers is simply impossible. This is broken i truly hope you fix this. We already buy tanks and premium accounts from yall. Having to buy credits just to buy regular tanks is pathetic.

I have never had trouble getting enough credits, If I need credits for a tier 8,9 or 10 I just play my premium Tanks, May slap a booster and play for a few hours. If I am impatient I will sell the tank proceeding it in the line, and or sell some stuff collecting dust in my garage, Modules, shells I can no longer use, Or some eq, since I spent 49 million a few months back on eq and consumables, the last time it came up I spent another 10 million. So I will not be losing credits just getting back what I spent.

Which tank were you playing that you were top three and lost credits at tier nine?  The system is designed to try to get you to buy premium time at the upper tiers.  Also do you happen to have a replay, there is a good chance it sounds like most of your damage was done with someone else spotting your target.

WG has nerfed the credit earnings at least a couple times over the years that I know of. It's their way of forcing people to buy premium time or premium tanks. Something you can do to help your bottom line is do not shoot gold if at all possible (I carry 5 gold rounds in any tank I have and use them only as needed) and don't run food. Basically reduce your costs at high tier.

They nerfed it by adding frontlines?  That mode just prints credits without even trying.

Are you using premium consumables? How much premium ammo did you use?

 

This sounds like a case of EBKAC. I do not play tier 9 very often but I have a standard account and can still turn a profit when I play well.

Depends heavily on how that damage was done.

 

Spammed premium ammo? No credits for you.

Shot targets spotted by someone else? Only 50% credits for you

Clubbed tier 7 tanks? Not much credits for you.

This. 

 

Been grinding the french tier 9 arty, standard account, and no issues with credit earnings.

 

Definitely not requiring me to spend 99% of my time grinding credits in prem tanks.

Very true. At tier 9 with premium account you are unlikely to lose money unless you start shooting a lot of premium ammo. WG needs to make money somewhere or we would have no pixel tanks.

No one said anything about front lines.........OP stated tier 9.

Sorry but I'm not going to search 6 years worth of anything just to satisfy a forum troll, but yes there have been patch notes stating credit nerfs in the past......go find them yourselves.

literally have 500 50% income credits that wg has given out for free for entering those nonsense codes.

 

i can fire 100% gold in just about any tank and still make money during a session...especially if you alternate your play with a premium tank here and there.

You likely need more assisted damage- get up in the action and watch xp and credits soar.

You are literally saying "I can't be bothered to back up my claims - you go out and prove my point for me". You've gotta realize how absurd that sounds.

FYI I've lost games in a Churchill III and made 100,000 credits.
