I have been using proving grounds mostly the simple standard battle to build up crews silver and free xp.I have been able to build some decent crews on tanks that are not yet battle ready. My question is?. Did they make any changes to Proving grounds? I am now losing silver more than I am making it. I am still able to build my crew but losing silver. This has been very rare this happens. Now it happens often since the update. Anyone know something about this? Thanks!

I typically try the Island Race, 2 times a day to make around 200k silver, (before the ops nerf awhile back it was around 300k silver). After the 4.2 update, it seemed the enemy bot tanks were better, smarter, more accurate, & causing more than the usual damage to my tank. Then I only made about 40K silver. There may well have been some changes, it just seemed different, alittle more difficult. For me it's ok because doing this regularly every day since it was discovered and made public on youtube by Cosmic Carrie I have made a ton of silver.

I'll try checking the specifics next time I play the Island Race to be sure, but you're probably on to something. Big silver harvests done on the cheap I guess can't last forever, huh.

So what are you using while in proving grounds? Spamming premium is a waste tbh.

Will WG ever have WoT offline like they promised?

Yes it has changed. 

Looks like base silver earning is down a lot (40-50%?). 

The red bots no longer autolock on to your hull centre mass. They hit you all over and if they pen a weakspot hit it again. 

Green bots no longer give you space if you are behind or next to them, they will ram you out of the way now. They only react if you cut directly in front of them, but the space has been reduced so they seem to ram harder too. 

 

It's the ultimate nerf. I'm not sure what the point in keeping PG is now.

Wow, good explanation. I see it now. Hiding my center of mass used to get me alot before. Boom. Not now. Thanks Penny. Great observation.

Thanks for the answers. I like to test out new tanks etc etc. But it was nice making some silver while I am at it....it sucks now. I will have to work a little harder to make anything. I do not practice to lose silver lol.

Too many people making threads bragging about the easy silver on PG.  WG ended that.

So I guess we have the "Great job WG" thread from feb 2014 to thank for them destroying the game.

I doubt that's the reason, however they did do it in gradual stages. At first, 2 runs on Island race in the Edielweiss could get 300k. They nerfed the silver ops from 2x to 1.5x then 2 runs, same tank & map about 200k. Then last night after reading about the bot changes here on this thread I adjusted my gameplay alittle and same tank/map again,it was a real challenge and most I could get was 60k. Oh well, good while it lasted.

And to thank JelliedPenny08 for noticing this and posting such made it easier for me to figure out instead of having to go through numerous runs and looking for what was different than before.

I think this is how the forum can work by players sharing info to be seen & read so that many may benefit. Thx to all who posted in this thread. It helped me some.

If your question is to me, the gun on the Eidelweiss is more than adequate and I'll add 5 rounds H.E. to use on the the Hellcats and Amx12ts,(sometimes get a 1 or 2 shot kill with the H.E.) Then I'll use 2 small repair kits to fix gun or ammo rack dmg. Using a large 1st aid kit for the passive protection used to work pretty good most of the time. I'll probably look over the other battle options on proving grounds to see if anything is viable. It should also be added that the approximate 25hp/ton on the Eidelweiss and decent armor made it a good choice for the Island race battle.
