As I continue to grind up the tiers in World of Tanks, the game is beginning to change. No longer can I simply play the game, try and get doubles, and use any vehicle I want.
The amount of credits lost for most VK4502P games is astounding. Win, you lose a little. Lose well, you lose some credits. Lose without doing much, you forfeit 10k credits. And it’s a similar story with the KV-4, though not as extreme. My other current tanks – Tier VI artillery – are basically zero dollar gainers many matches.
This results in the need for grinding credits. The Lowe is very useful for this – if you have premium. If not, Tier V tanks work well when you have good games, and Tier I tanks always get you around 3k credits or more.
Thankfully I have been trying very hard not to sell tanks, so I’ve added several to my primary list and just play them when credits run low. World of Tanks has a neat solution to the usual problem MMO’s have of “no access” to lower level content once you reach a certain level – the prior levels are still accessible, if you want to play just move out in a tank. And it supports the ability to continue playing without premium, or “for free”, if you wish to do so.
