Subs = Credit Sink?

Just noticed the incredible amount of credit cost to using subs.  You end up a battle with a large credit deficit!  

 

What's up with that?

 

Could it be the rent?

You must be talking about the tier 10's. I just took the tier 6 Cachalot into co-op and still made almost 29k credits.

Just ran the tier 8 U-190 in co-op again and lost just under 2k credits. In randoms with the same performance I would have made good credits.

With Tier X subs you are going to eat credit losses in coop, especially without premium time.  The same thing would happen if you took any tech tree Tier X with no camo into coop.  I have categorically avoided the Tier X subs for this reason.

Typically I am just scraping by at T6-7, if I get 500CR I'm glad. It can be 10k's, but you need to score well, Co-Op has gotten vicious for points and income. Everyone needs that extra bit, to keep it all profitable.

I am gonna have to grind Rhein for 10k XP, at about 200-300XP/Co-OP bout(w/o prem). But, it will earn me a few 100k, if I play my cards right. And try to do well with it.

It's tough. CV's are not easy. It can be super difficult to make a dent in XP. The difference between the two torps that pay for the bout, or none, and barely break even. Subs can't be that valuable as a target, they have like 2-3k HP. They took 10k HP off the board by adding 2-3 Subs in a bout. Value for everyone then is down. You lucky to get 2/3 of the income as before this. Many times today during dailies, even with premium time on my side. Running naked would usually only get  <10k CR for any one particular bout. I have a hard time landing hits with CV's much at all.

The new rocket attack scheme is been tough for me to get the hang off. And german planes fly crazy high. It's all weird. Just trying to get thru the event, and campaigns. Plate very full.

Subs look, and seem interesting. I can scarcely afford the fleet I have already. Soon Dutch line will be stood-up.

Another 11M CR for a T9, and 17-20M for the T10. That is plenty of grind for me. Too much. Not even got one line to T10 yet, in well over a year.

Depending on how many Trees incorporate them, I may let them kept aside for awhile. Unless a task calls for them.

And learning yet another set of maneuvers, how to manipulate the craft, etc. Sub commander skills to learn about... on and on....

1300xp task/dailies just now, was not paying as close attention as I should have, think I was making music play. Got murdered outright, no sinks. In the initial wave.

just running the 3 DD's today, very simple quick and efficient fights. And typically double the amount for Service. A nice small profit, 200-3K

Just happy it's a net positive. But at this rate, will take along time to earn enough for each Line T10, 17M in 400CR increments, for 20? Ships of the line... Ho hum :)

It's the Co-OP struggle. Clean, neat simple bouts. That resolve w/o issue in a timely manner. It has it's advantages also v. Random.

And I just saw the next mission set for page 3 of Event, we need 120k Command XP(I earned 305CXP, above).... Gonna need to use a WG container in a day or so, make things feasible.

Weirdly we lost a Co-Op bout to 2 cruisers(CA?, C?, I am unsure of the cruiser abbreviation.) On two Brothers, who sailed up the middle, and took out base, lol. No one fought them, maybe a sub that got spanked) It was funny terrible, i was trying to warn folks as I saw that flicker of red. But to late, we all had smashed the others, and they had sailed through pretty much unopposed.  Harsh.

looks like i won't need to use a WG container, todays reward for login.

I had around 2M credits before playing TierX subs and now i have about 300K. 

 

Is this a form of WoW robbery or is this to be expected?
