perhaps I am just not that observant, but recently I have noticed a penalty to credits based on tier and class. For example, my Iowa was slapped with a -30% credit penalty this morning for a game I won in which I did no damage to allies. I'll readily admit to being a potatoe that doesn't necessarily keep up with current events. Have I missed a change to the economy lately?

Had a game like that in my Duke, 5 of us went to the other flank no enemy and me chugging to get around the islands with the Atlanta 2 DD's and a Nelson, my team capped out before I could get my tug to any kind of action , I netted a grand total of 54 silver lol

Without information of your account, your dmg/xp for the game, what consumables, camo, and standard/premium time...tuff to tell you about why.

BLUF....economy has not changed in many months.  Last change made it a bit easier to get even in high tier.

 

v/r,

As far as I know there is a flat rate now, weather it is type or tier specific I don't know. Depending on consumables used of course

You sure it was a penalty and not the reduced service cost flag you had mounted on your ship?

that too.  Sounds like it was a cost reduction from camo/flags, maybe both that stacked.

There is no service penalty and the only change to economy was the straight service cost at all tiers.  High tiers it got harder to make money but it has been in place for awhile.

The combination of the two with the tier 9 camo's -20% service cost and the flag's -10% service cost would stack up to -30%.

 

The op might be misinterpreting what that -30% is referring to.

That's what I'm thinking as well.

The -30% is a benefit (a good thing) not a penalty (bad thing).  It is a 30% REDUCTION in service costs.

 

For example, if your service costs are 10000 credits, a -30% reduction would be a 3000 reduction (-30%) in those costs, bringing the costs down from 10000 to 7000.

 

As others have noted, service cost reductions can be produced in several ways; camo and flags being the most prevalent reduction methods.  The end screen will show you the total reduction as well as itemize where those deduction originate.

Now then....if you were to get the tier 10 camo of -50% service cost, then add in the signal flag -10%, then get the -10% from the clan, and finally obtain the Premier Flag from ranked battles for the -20%, you then would only have to spend 10% of the service cost of that tier 10 in each battle.

 

That is a rather insane profitability for tier 10s, but as of now -70% is the best that practically anyone can get
