Bomber mode had a jacked up economy, for both exp and credits...

Flying bombers almost exclusively has made me a rich old man.  I should see what a billion silver looks like in a month or two.

 

:popcorn:

 

I don't know about parts.  Nothing to compare it to.

Lost count of my coffers since I got 97M credit...

Speaking of which, just how is it calculated?

For example, I fly in my Me265, it says 50k income after a game, and -24k for consumables and -6~12k for repairs, so how much did I get in the end?

Play mostly German Tier 8's...and economy sucks. Ended up selling large part of my staple just to keep the upgrades going and to have enough cash for 2 spec configs. Currebtly have researched two T9's, no way to earn enough cash to buy them.

You get 50k. Expenses are taken already.

Edit: I'm partially wrong. Repairs are taken already, but services you have to take from that amount, or something like that.

I bought two tier 10s in the last two weeks :p I'm kinda broke.

But a truce to this mournful story

For death is a distant friend

So here's to a life of glory

And a laurel to crown each end

The XP and credit economies are fine. And generous by wargaming standards really. I went up to 98 million credits over the last two weeks, although after a t10, a few specialists, a bunch of upgrading of equipment, and some reassembling of equipment I'm back to 81 million where I was 2 weeks ago.

The parts economy is inflated right now because of the crates that you can purchase and earn (and also is if you played ground pounders or flights with them during the event). That being said, this isn't necessarily a bad thing since they are really stingy with those. It takes days to get enough parts to fully upgrade and calibrate just one piece of equipment with regular play.

So I get 50k-24k, and regardless of repairs?

Then it looks like I'm doing fine...

I don't notice anything too different.   For most battles, I just go in and use the fudge!

It sucks in T9 American multiroles.  You can win and rack up huge points but you still loose silver.

Im doing better now because i have more different  premiums to play.
If i run out of cash its my own fault at this point.

If there is one thing i never have enough of though,
... it's the piece of salvage called "mechanical part"

Silver, XP, and Tokens are all great. Even Gold is pretty easy to come by in small ammounts with all of these events.

 

However, the parts economy is terrible and I'm always out of mechanical parts and often heat resistant parts (everything else I have dozens of).

All I can say is, fly T I, II, III, and IV.  That's where you will farm them.  I currently am hoarding.  5K of the two most common parts, 2.5K of the next most common parts, and 400 of the two rarest.

 

Looking forward to the US bomber line!

I flew my Vampire on her maiden voyage yesterday, and collected 8 mechanical parts along with a bunch of others  

I wonder if they made a change in the last patch to give out more at higher levels
