If the compensation exchange rate is 12-20% for equipment depending on how many battles you've done that's a loss of between 80-88%

 

if you paid for equipment in time - grinding credits that a hideous tax of your precious time and life. Not gonna do it again probably as life is too short.

 

if you (like me) paid for much equipment in money - buying gold/credits that's a hideous tax on your money. Not gonna do it again definitely, spend it on something else.

At least Im quite sure when there is a bug found with something in the future that allows you to get free silver/gold, like with the trainingrooms, nobody would have a problem with taking advantage of WG anymore

I've reworked the calculator to use a balancing curve for the rewards per mission based on tier in line with the relative equipment costs per tier. For example, a tier II tank needs over 300% the credits to fully equip than a tier I tank, but from tier IX to tier X it is only about 30%, and likewise the mission rewards differences are less at higher tiers as well.

 

I've also added in sections to see what grinding in Tier X tanks only to get the SP for all tanks in your garage would take.

 

I'll try and work out how to post it up in a while, but here is the bottom line for me....

 

Bearing in mind I have 270 tanks, If I grind only in tier X tanks, it will take 5.7 years to fully equip every tank. If you grind in the tanks at the tier you want the equipment it would take 7.4 years

 

Compensation (as I've played 45/6K battles, and have 3 EQ on all tanks) of  4708K, which can fully equip all my tier X with a little left over. But can only fully equip about 60% of my tier 8 tanks.

 

If I use the compensation, that that drops my grind using Tier X only to almost exactly 5 years! Don't think I'll be around playing for that long, and that doesn't even accommodate any new tanks coming in to the game.

 

Sigh, time to bend over and grab your ankles!

One thing not factored in here, premium time and x2 daily multipliers. If both of those have a factor on SP then that could help improve the rate of acquisition a bit, maybe an increase of 33% like credits do on premium accounts.

 

If premium tanks also get higher SP earning (let's hope so) then that will encourage using tier VIII tanks to do the grinds instead of tier X (let's face it, I think that would be better all around)

Spreadsheet is great. 

 

Shows that it is completely not worth it to grind full equipment on Tier 1 and Tier 2 tanks.  Even Tier 3 is very questionable.

 

Tier 1-3 tanks should not have access to Equipment Levels 2 and 3.

Hi,

 

I suggest you adding the timers duration for each tier and rank of the equip ! :popcorn:

Is it just or is the sp/battle way off in that spreadsheet?

I seem to get about 220 per battle in tier 7-8...

Thanks for all this work.

When I first started Blitz, a buddy advised me to focus on equipping my premium tanks, which was pretty sound advice.

Now I split my attention between what is WISE and what is FUN.

For example:

1 Fully equipped my first tier, Kuro Miro Mine.

2 Fully equipped my T1 Cunningham, my favorite Seal Clubbing tank.

3 Next I will equip my KV-1S, which is the branch I will grind to tier X.

4 But I will go back to another FUN tank (perhaps the Cruiser III), then return to a responsible tank.

 

Also, I have cancelled 3 different tank grinds, since it will take some time to equip my existing favorite tanks.
