why is the silver so low? If you want people to play this, then the reward needs to be fair.

 

the commander gets a numbers advantage and there is already youtube vids out so you can build the perfect team. The tankers get financially hit if the use various ammo types spending on the enemy. I’ve used only standard ammo on my vk 100.01 and lost a lot of silver even though I came in first but our team lost.

Using your own tanks brings in negative silver and much less xp.

Much better to use the random tanker option or rent one of the silver rentable tanks (rented tank allows you to customise load out and use a decent crew), both options pay better than using your own tanks.

Yup, you lose a bit of silver every game. I take about a 6k hit every match, no consumables, no premium, maybe 1-5 misses/bounces, win. It not much but it still annoying to see.

 

Wasnt bad 1st time around because of all the ops you were completing per match.

 

At least they fixed the exp gain for certain tanks so youre not seeing a Vengeance with sub 500 dmg out exp'ing someone with 4k dmg and multiple kills.

I was assuming about the xp based in last month, how is it now?

It seemed like a waste of time running owned tanks before as the main Progression ops are xp based.

i ain't playing this for silver or XP. Only for rewards from OPS and additional points to finish Games even faster.

The xp seems low. 500-700 if you do ok. The only way I could earn decent silver was to use the random tanks the give you. I seemed to do well with the Italian medium and the vengeance. I could earn 20-30k silver win or lose.

However I did notice the rentals are for gold only except the td.

It’s a good way to assist with the fall games with points etc. Plus you get a bit of gold and 7 days prem time and consumables (cola)

There are 7 tanks available to rent, 3 can be rented for silver but you can only rent tanks that you don't already own.

 

I see could see 5 tanks and 2 were rentable for silver.

The biggest rewards are xp based though, the Progression ops pay out gold, premium time and at least one premium tank.

That was true Last time buy this time I've been making more xp with a rented tank.

Hello, taking it a look, you're almost exclusively using Premium ammo, this is why you're struggling with Silver a bit. Stick with the standard rounds and you should see a noticeable improvement. :great:

Oh that's right, bots don't send "git gud gold spamming noob" messages. :D 

 

Max, what about the XP earnings? Is it still true default tanks earn significantly more XP per battle than owned and/or rented vehicles? Thanks.

No, that was fixed. They should earn roughly the same XP.

I haven't lost silver in a match yet, playing as the commander or the tanker.

It’s worth playing enough to get the 7 days of premium.

Aye. Been playing with Super Pershing as the bots just ping shots off from the front of it. With premium time and minimal prammo spam I can make 50k+ and around 1k xp for a win. Doesn't seem too bad given crew training counts as well and the battles are short.
