Couldn't figure out how to add image to post, so attached as file.

Basically, had a good match, 3 kills, 58K damage(Ok isn't alot). No Premium, but do have a credit flag flying. Using 2 Premium consumables. Still lost 9K credits. Wha? Gonna go bankrupt. Sorry if this covered before but not really feeling the need to play this game much more...

They make it difficult to only play top tier - you have to play mid-tier to make money.  Especially true if you do not have a premium account or ship.

Permanent camouflage with premium account allows you to run tier X ships without having to play other ships to make up for credit loss.  You can also buy high tier premium ships to keep the credits flowing.

Buy premium or cut the consumables. You can also keep things like this and perform better, 53K damage at tier 10 is average at best.

Buy camo for your T10. It'll make money then, even on a standard account I'm sure. I make quite good money on a premium account with it. Or, as Cylon said, play lower tiers to make money. They don't want to strongly encourage everyone to play high tiers because there'd be a population problem in lower tiers.

Tier 10 is not designed for the "free" players (without losing money). Running a premium account, with tier 10 premium camo and credit flags essentially lets you run tier 10 with premium consumables and still make money. WG isn't likely to change that mechanic anytime soon. They want people to spend money. Buying premium time, premium camo and flags is a good way to do this.

 

If you can't do these things, then your best bet is to run tier 7/8 for credits and only play tier 10 sparingly.

Problem found, 55k damage. You need to push a lot more than that to make good credits at the top.

You can still break even at tier X with a decent game and some modifiers, and yeah, 58k damage isn't a lot compared to the server average for the Minotaur.

55k is 2 and a bit DDs.

 

The raw damage matters less than the distribution.
