Thank you too. Now got 178 also in tier III. The tier spread seems to be uneven.

Hello,

 

could you list some examples of number of SP drop per win in high tiers?

I'll check when home, but iirc I'm getting between 120-180 in tier III. Looks a bit off, if the maximum in tier X is 231.

hi a couple of days ago I did 20 battles all tier X except for one. (Luchs had a birthday) that gave me 9 drops  of spare parts for 1361. 

 

Tonight in in a variety of tiers the last 10 games I had 2 drops of spare parts for 260. Tier vi wins were the games that game me spare parts. 

 

I have not been keeping track of the spare parts drops except for the above data.  hope this helps.

I can't be arsed to look, TBH. Some tiny number happens sometimes. I need to win games in tanks as they are, rather than in some far distant mythical future. Spare parts are a complexity enhancer, irrelevant to the game.

Just had a thought. Sorry too much caffeine late at night not thinking straight but. 

 

Has any one completed a mission and only got the spare parts for the mission, with no additional spare parts? 

Every time I have completed a mission, that I have checked, I get the spare parts for the mission and an additional drop of the spare parts.

Drop rate for spare parts during battles is very, very low. It needs to be 5-10 times more. I equipped most of my tanks with level 1 or 2 slots and some even have VStab from level 3. But thing is I don't have too many tanks in garage and I got most of spare parts from 17k battles I played before 3.8 patch. Without that I wouldn't have spare parts to equip even my basic tanks.

 

Unless we can not get 5-10x increased rate it would be useful to get spare parts from every battle and removing limitation to unlock all slots from previous level to start a slot from new level. For example, on some of my tanks I need to improve gun handling and for that I need to unlock 3 slots with credits and 4 slots with spare parts. Why do I need to unlock armor or traverse just to get VStab? At least let us unlock slots that we actually need.

 

With this drop rate  of spare parts I will be able to unlock only slots for credits on new tanks because:

- I need spare parts for my favourite tanks in garage

- I will research and buy next tank in tech tree even before i collect spare parts to unlock all level 2 slots

- why would I waste spare parts that are so hard to get on tank that I will sell in 1,2 or 3 weeks, after I research next tank.

Looking at Tier 10 equipment.

level 2 equipment is 3x 29,300 (for each slot) =87,900 total spare parts for level 2

level 3 equipment is 3x 32,600 (for each slot) =97,800 total spare parts for level 3

So to full equipe ONE tier10 is 185,700 spare parts.

 

So using the spare parts constant from above. 100 spare parts on average at maximum dropping.

 

So the parts needed by the average spare parts drop = battles needed to fully equipe a tierX tank

185,700 divided by 100 = 1857 battles.

I need to play 1857 Battles in a TierX just to get full equipment for it!

Also, this is based on the MAXIMUM dropping which means its even more battles!

 

They said.

Why Spare Parts, not Credits?

Credits are not used to unlock Tiers II–III slots because that would be too expensive, especially for high-tier vehicles:

Previously, players needed 1,800,000 to fill in three equipment slots for a Tier X vehicle.

If prices remained the same, players would have had to pay 5,400,000 for nine slots, which would have been enough to purchase an additional Tier X vehicle outright.

Even if we reduce costs by half, the entire set of equipment for a single vehicle will still remain too expensive: 2,700,000 (i.e. 300,000 for one slot).

This is why we introduced time shift mechanics and a separate currency for equipment—Spare Parts.

Unlike credits, Spare Parts are used to unlock equipment slots only. Spare Parts are not spent on shells, repairs, camouflage resupplies, and new vehicle purchases. If you keep playing at the same pace as before, Spare Parts will inevitably accumulate.

5.7m credits for equipment is far easier to achieve.

Most people can make 10,000 credits per battle, i think its a reasonable amount.

5,400,000 / 5,000 = 1,080

so in 1,080battles averaging 5,000 credits I can make the cash they are saying.

So thats a third of battles needed compared to spare parts (dropped at maximum amounts!)

 

From the 1,857 battles, if I earn 5,000 credits on average, 

I can make 9,285,000 credits.

At the highest drop rate I can make 9,2million credits.

 

So please, How are spare parts doing US a favour?

 

 

A little fault in what you suggest. You will play a 1000 battles to earn money just for one equipment? Wont you ever need it for some other things? Like buying a tank, and other stuff? Either way its not easy

And lets all not forget how much missions can give us. A set of missions at tier ten give 4.5-5k so 9-10k per day. Play for three days doing missions and you can get one equipment. I know many hate them but theyre another way you can get them. If youre gonna play a lot of battles to grind the SP you will do a lot of missions.

I was just pointing out the differences in credit earnings vs credits and its far easier to earn the required credits.

 

I play missions and they dont really ease the problem. I have 11 tierX tanks and by doing rations I fully equiped my 5 best.

So I have 6 empty tierX tanks in my garage.

6x185,700(spare parts needed for max) = 1,114,200 spare parts I need just for these 6 tanks.

If I can get 10,000 parts from missions (per day) then its still a long time.

1,114,200 / 10,000 = 111.42

111 days worth of missions for 6 tanks 

When I add these 6 plus my other premium tanks its years to equip them.

So why would I bother to buy any more or grind new lines?
