What the heck you have to do to get any credits?

Hi;

Like the title says, I try and try to do good in battles. And I keep losing credits, not hardly gaining any. I have tier 6 thru 8 ships. Sometimes I get ahead just to lose more in some battles. This game is more of a rip-off the more I play it. I'm too bad of a player, but gee wiz people. Maybe I need to take a break from this screwed up game.

Operations with premium ships, premium account, and flags on premium ships to boost the higher earning.

Don't play above tier 7, play any premiums you have. It looks like you do more co-op, and co-op does not pay well at all.

Operation Narai and if you want to 5 star it every time, do it with a team. I could not have gotten to 279 ships without Operations. Hoperations channel on discord has secured me lots of extra Credits, XP Elite XP and Free XP. PM @Lightninger for a link to the discord.

I have only 4 ships now, trying to get enough credits to buy the " Fiji — British Tier VII cruiser". The ones that I have now is "King George V, Leander, Algérie and the  Charles Martel".

stop playing t7 and t8.  t6 is your limit without perma camo.

Save coal.  Get t10 salem for coal, that boat pays well because it has special features.

Check your inventory, see what perma camos you have.

 

And like others said.  Run operations instead of coop/random matches.  Go to Operations chat channel in game and join Narai division (t7 ships).  This will make silver easy.  My problem with this is that it takes about 15-20 minutes per match so you can easily figure out what you can make per hour.

Premium time and don't play above T6. T7 and up are more expensive to operate. That said I play T10 and very rarely lose credits (with Prem time)

Play your Premium ships (if any).

Use flags and camos.

Play Ops with knowledgeable people. Become a member of Hoperations Discord. We routinely get 5 stars and very rarely 4 stars. Ops pay well in credits,

You answered your own question.  You need to do damage to earn credits and since you're barely doing any damage, why not post some replay videos so we can see why you're not doing any damage.

Bad players stay bad players because they are either too lazy or too prideful to post replays.  If you want to get better, it requires humility, one of the greatest demonstrations of strength. Question is, are you strong enough?

I have over 400 cammos that give credit bonuses...

All earned for free.

.....

Never sail out of port naked.

Do more damage than your own ships hp.

Shoot destroyers and cruisers to eat up higher percentage of their health.

Live longer.

it's easy..... (premium time is the best spend)

Problem with that is it does not solve the problem of sabotaging teams.  Sure he can buy premium, but it won't improve his game and at the numbers he's producing, it's low enough to be classified as sabotage.  In other words, this production is so low that he forces his team to have to carry a significant portion of his responsibility putting his teams in a substantial uphill battle.

The current event is a good source of income IMO. I have no aspirations for the free ship so I'm just playing away on 2nd ship you unlock. Plus with all the whatchamacallits I'm getting, once the event ends, I can use those towards even more credits!

Well, I just bought perm camo for King George V,  so in August I will get a couple more for the French cruisers.

And I do damage ships, but like with the KG V, tier 7 and then a tier 9 or 10 is the battle that can outrange me. I have a problem.

Your best bet is to earn a free premium. I know some of the grinds are getting absurd, but there have been chances to earn them over the last year.

I guess I just had to gripe about something, Thanks for all the help. And I have been reading the pro and cons of the ships and how to play them to their strengths. Like the French cruisers  Algérie and the  Charles Martel, they say to use those in the open sea and on the go all the time between 17k thru 14k shooting range.

That is a good point.  You get fuel tokens.  20 of them can be exchanged for 450k silver in Armory.

there is no problem in this world that cash can't solve. the rest is up to him.
