Wow you must have been out of the game for a long time, because the set service fee started ages ago.

The higher the tiers the higher the cost :D

at teir 8,  a free to play player can make an income if they have good games.
Beyond that, unless you have  prem time/camos, you're not going to make any profit.

Play some mid-tier ships, especially 7 if you want to grind credits.

I do believe it is miss named. It is the cost of bringing the ship to battle, fits better than Post battle

Be happy it is a flat rate. You used to pay proportionally to the damage you took. People hid all match even more than they do now fearful of having to pay. Of course since you are not aware, those hiding today might not have gotten the memo either.

The point is, play better, do more damage, and earn more credits than the service cost.

Find the tier where you make the most credits, and play that to build up your stockpile.

Unless you play decently, and/or pay money, you can't build up credits in T8+ on the ship you're grinding.

It is surprising how many people never noticed the change.

When I first got the Fletcher, I thought I'd never get it to pay for itself. Now, in the Gearing, I can make a bit of money about 2/3 of the time and break even over all games.

:Smile_great:

Now you can be as aggressive as you like and pay the same fee. Getting sunk in the past, meant that sometimes, when the fee was proportional, you could lose money on a good game.

Here is the wiki on the service cost. 

http://wiki.wargaming.net/en/Ship:Economy#Operating_Cost

 

You can mitigate the operating cost by the following. Perma-camo gives a -10% to -50% discount depending on tier. T5-8  -10%, T9  -20%, T10  -50%.. The India Bravo Terrathree signal flag can provide another -10% discount and is earned with the It's Just a Flesh Wound achievement, in missions, containers, the Arsenal and from playing the PTS. If you are in a clan, there are buildings to provide a -10% discount as well. They are all stackable.

Never mind that.. what's the deal with airline peanuts?

Peanuts? Do they even have nuts on an airplane anymore? Pretzels or that gawd awful salty medley of toe and fingernails maybe.

I am just over 100 million currently but the next tier 10 will wipe out something between 20 million and 40 million to buy and set up. It looks like a lot but it goes mighty fast.
