Higher tiers you go, the less the credit earning income. This was designed to keep the mid tiers populated with players grinding credits so newer players can get a game more quickly. 

 

Not really a flaw but an intended game design.

RNG screwed you so with better accuracy you would have made decent credits

You fired 31 shells, only 24 connected and only 19 did damage, therefore you wasted 12 shells at whatever their unit cost is but you would have most likely broken even or made a small profit if you hadn't wasted those shells.

 

Your other major cost is repairs to your tank so only avoiding damage will save costs there.

 

In any case the credit economy is most profitable at tiers 5 to 7 and tapers off after that, which is a deliberate strategy by WG to ensure players keep playing the mid tiers to provide battles for new players.

The first part of what you said, bassically answered this whole thread.

Shots fired vs hit\penned is main reason why you lost so much.

I run my m48patton with maybe 15gold rounds (for a tank that can carry alot of shells..)

And dont fire a single gold round bar 1in 4\5 matches. And can still manage a good profit.

Its all about the hit\pen ratio that affects your profit at the end of battle

On the other hand, I feel for the OP - tier X is expensive to run on a standard account.

I always have a standard account. High tiers are suffering.

 

Breaking even doesn't cut it and sometimes gold is necessary. Or if I am running my HESH Conway/ConqGC.

Super expensive for sure. Stock grind on E100 probably the most expensive grind ive ever made, even you just need to unlock the 1 top gun. Add the fact tier 10 dont get much xp compared to other made the grind longer :D. Batchat grind somehow are not that expensive, dunno why.

Damn it.. you beat me to it. :justwait:

you did notice that with a premium account the OP would of actually made a profit.

 

And this is what has been described as an indirect P2W aspect of the game.

I think it is more like paying more for a better internet package.  A budget internet package does not stop you accessing the internet, but it will be slower and you can do less. The more you want to do, the more you need to pay, which is fair.

 

$13 for a month of premium is pretty cheap, less that 50c per day. Even with premium, I generally lose money playing above tier8.
