Why play in tier X? ...

With bbs it has always been difficult to make a really good score to make credits (With yamato for example), especially if you sink.

For this I really enjoyed using Gearing, kaba and shima to, But this before the latest patches !!

Now I find it difficult to finish a game with positive credits....

After an afternoon of games in Gearing I went up to 200000 credits. i remember some afternoons when i make +/-2500000 Credits.

Now different afternoon with my lovely FUSO i went up to +/-1600000 credits.....

 

so, why play tier x now ? ...

 

Ciao

Readable edition.

 

You do realise that since quite a few patches back the costs solely depends on consumable replenishment, battle-fee, ammo cost - thus how much you earn/lose is determinate by that + the earned rewards site? 

 

 

btw: I get confused by +/- 2,5 mio like all hell. So you got a fluctuation of 5 mio or what? Sorry, but I gotta ask for further explanation because I simply dont understand.

Duno why text go off....

Negativvv i want to see this camo!!! :D

 

Look in the camo section in game.

 

5k doubloons buys you camo that basically lets you play T10 all you want without any loss.

 

One of the worst additions to the game if you ask me but it makes WG money...

havaduck I do not understand your  question. I mean 2500000 more or less in a afternoon, not + 2500000 or - 2500000

WG has ruined high tiers with total repair costs for all, now if game is too fast you cant make enough damage to cover costs, this change happened about 7 months ago. WG is not alone to blame, this change resulted due to constant crying of some players about camping. I am surprised that WG has not learn by now that if they listen players suggestion too much they will ruin the game. Because angry players after battle are not objective when they write complaints.  But even as it is, every tier 10 ships are far far better then their predecessors tier 9.

Even without premium you should still break even with a halfway solid game and make a nice profit with a good one.

 

If you're consistently losing credits in ships like the Yamato, then you're simply consistently performing subpar.

Yes...

 

I'm a very strong believer in that higher tier ships are a privilege and not a right.

 

Sadly WG do not agree :P

If you don't break even you shouldn't play tier 10s? that's harsh.

I paid about 60k free XP to skip the last of the Izumo but I can safely say I did the rest by hard bloodied work :honoring:

Same I did manage to get to the last hull with the Izumo but not long after that I got really fed up with it so went and got the Amagi and my Warspite and built up some free ex to get the Yam :izmena:

Maybe WG should introduce a more competitive group and one causal in high tiers. When there's enough players, one choose what one wants to play. I mean, it's a game in the end. Potatoes want to play yamas and tirpsises too :child:

Well I'm more or less at peace with less able players as there's an endless harvest of them to pad my own stats with.

 

The only real issue I have is I find CV impossible to learn as the gulf in ability means I either rofflestomp enemy ones or I get obliterated with nothing in between.

Just remove the possibility to use free xp from T-VIII.... I have earned my T-X's the hard way....If I had 382.855 dubloms today all my elite xp from all my ships could be converted into 9.821.35 free xp..

I don't have the money to do so and it would spoil the joy for me when I get the next ship in line..... only ever converted 6 or 9 dubloms to free xp since I couldn't get anything else for them...

 

It is just satisfying to know you haven't bought it but earned it... Then its secondary being a super player or someone like me.

Because you are always top tier and get the most experience (good for training a captain). And depending on the ship, it can also be most fun.

If you really like a t10 ship, consider buying 5.000 doubloons. I know, free to play and all that, but with this investment, you can play a tier 10 ship as much as you like, even gaining money instead of losing it, regardless of having prremium or not.

 

Just look at this (the text is in german, but it should be clear what the income was in these three battles):

shot-17.05.01_18.21.29-0869.jpg?dl=0&raw

shot-17.05.01_18.21.51-0716.jpg?dl=0&raw

 

shot-17.05.01_19.27.49-0222.jpg?dl=0&raw

shot-17.05.01_19.27.58-0745.jpg?dl=0&raw

 

shot-17.05.01_20.27.58-0292.jpg?dl=0&raw

shot-17.05.01_20.28.13-0468.jpg?dl=0&raw

 

That is just thanks to the 5k Doubloon camo. Even in my worst games, i made profit. Also would have without premium.

 

So you either have to farm credits in the lower tiers to be able to play t10 (if you aren't really really good), or you have to spend money. That is intended.

The reason to play tier X is the parity between player vessels, it is a much more pleasant playing field and you are not forced into playing a supporting role, I.E, you no longer have to face Bismarcks in your Duca or La Galisonthundercunt, you are always at the top of the food chain like almost every other. 


As for the ability to play it, as other forumites pointed it out, it is a privilege, not a right. There are to many Yamatos sailing around the edges of the map doing nothing for their team. And in my eyes, their lack of involvement deserves to be punished. Break them where it hurts. Take their credits away! It is probably the frustration with BBabies talking, but I will stand by my words.

Tier X = Always top tier, no more crying that you're being put in bad MM as lower tier. Plus, most X are better than their IX counterparts and certainly than their VIII counterparts.
