1st screen - Cleveland 36k damage spread over three ships, nothing spectacular

2nd screen - Cleveland credits earned $68k (with premium)

3rd screen - N Carolina 85k damage spread over three ships, at least 2 citadels in the mix

4th screen - N Carolina $66k credits earned (with premium)

Even though I did SIGNIFICANTLY more damage to each target with the North Carolina I got paid less.  I understand that they were Tier 6s instead of Tier 8s, but that was more than twice the damage.  The pay rate drops off that sharply?

Anyone understand this better than I? (rhetorical question) Please explain.  Use small words, been stuck at home with the kiddos for going on 5 days straight.

Credits are based on

  • DMG percentage taken off the red team
  • Certain Ribbons
  • Heroic achievements

Its not only DMG collected... You get more credits for capping (Certain Ribbons) then DMG dealt...

Now, the math behind it... I am not getting into it this early in the morning... I hope this just covered the basics.. Its not DMG that determines how much credits you earn.

Not all damage is equal. 

Higher tier targets > Lower tier targets

Ships with lower max Hp > Ships with higher max Hp (damage against DD>damage against BB) (DD>CA/CL>BB>CV)

Also, I believe credits are earned based on XP earned not damage (though damage is one of the biggest factors in XP earning)

  • In Cleveland you did all of your damage to the same tier ( 8 w/ no lower) and it was all Cruiser/DD/CV and no BB so that damage you did was a bigger % of each ship's total HP.
  • In NC you did most of your damage to ships 2 tiers lower (6) than yours (8) and most of it was to a BB.

Credits are based on damage done based on the target ship's tier vs yours (higher than you pays most / same as you pays decent / lower than you pays significantly less) and what % of that ship's total HP the damage you did came to. 

EDIT - also looks to be Co-op which pays 50-60% less than Randoms so that didn't help you either.

Its based on what T your attacking and how much percent you do to the target.

20k on a DD is worth more than 20k on BB

Credit is based on % of health taken off of a ship.

Their is a multaplyer based on tier difference. 

The higher the tier ship you shoot the higher the bonus.

I don't think payout is simply a function of total damage caused.

Imagine a game with a T6 Graf Spee and a T8 Bismarck.

Bismarck cases 30k damage to Spee and Spee causes 30k damage to Bismarck.

Should the credit reward be the same for both ?

I mean someone on Bismarck sneezes and Spee is down to 50% HP :-)

It isn't just damage. Most things that contribute toward victory also give you credits and xp in various amounts. Taking caps, defending caps, killing planes, spotting damage, tanking damage etc. all contribute. Caps in particular contribute a lot.  I've had DD games where I did almost no damage, but took and defended multiple cap points and my team got a lot of spotting damage in for me and I reaped large credit hauls. Several people ahead of me already linked webpages giving you an idea how it is calculated so I won't repost it. I've never found straight damage to be a good credit earner without doing something else useful.
