1st of all, I am buggered that I missed on the last RB rewards. I didn't know they would finish on the 30th of Dec and no one seemed to play RB so I couldn't get my 5 battles. GRRRR

 

On the current RB, aren't we supposed to get extra credits from RB? Currently I am 3900-ish and haven't notived any increase in credits income, only exp one. Am I missing something?

I rarely play RB now but I know for definite that you get an XP boost but I don’t think you get a credit one - I might be wrong

I play them as it seems the game play is a bit better than the insanity of random battles.

 

They are supposed to give a credit boost:

 

Credit bonus for winning a battle depending on your current rating:

  • 0–32% in the Gold League (3,000–3,999 rating points)
  • 33–65% in the Platinum League (4,000–4,999 rating points)
  • 66% and above in the Diamond League (5,000 rating points and above)

I play RB quite often.  I haven't noticed any sizeable increase in the credit earning amount.  The only reason I play RB is to farm credits and free XP.  I'm not bothered about winning or my ranking, it's all about putting in the damage to get credits and a win boosts that nicely if you get one.

 

RB is also a good live training ground to try out new wagons and tactics.

The credits increase was never mentioned separately. Also, they never mention to which amount the percent will be applied, i.e. to the profit, to the total, etc.

Thank you for removing timers and spare parts, now please do the same with Military Honor !

Are we getting different news? In game news says:

No, not different news. What I'm saying is that in the news, latest or the others before, WG never mentioned how the percentage (i.e. 0-32% for golden league) will be applied: i.e. to the total amount, to the profit, etc. Also, they never mentioned separately this amount in a separated column into the battle result screen like they do with experience or into the Credits section. This is making hard to see if it was really applied or not and if it was applied, it is impossible to calculate the amount as long as it is not specified the formula.

When I play ratings (or rather, last month, when I played RB, and was in the Gold league...) I find the credit earnings are higher...

It’s not identified as a specific bonus, but it is definitely more rewarding - I tend to combine it with vehicle birthdays and throw in some free XP boosters...

Empros is recruiting! Message me in game to apply.

As no-one seems to be able to actually explain what this "reward" is and how it works and WG make it as clear as mud, I'm with the others here, I haven't a scooby what this extra reward for ratings is or how it works!

I read that at the time and read the same thing in latest WG news, I’m clearly thick but that doesnt help...

Can you explain it?

You get a % bonus but what does this bit below mean?  How can a % bonus be fixed?  How can it not increase the total?

If I earn 10k credits, get a 30% bonus, total credits should increase from 10k to 13k...

If it’s included in the 10k it’s not a bonus and how can a % be fixed as your credits earned depends on performance, repairs,load out etc

 “this is a fixed bonus for winning a battle, not an increase in the total amount of earned experience and credits.”

There is an old thread about tank profitability and it provides a formula allegedly used to calculate credits for a battle. It has many components and one of them is 600*tier if you win a battle. 

The way I understand the above explanation is that the bonus is applied to this kind of fixed amount (fixed for a particular tank depending on tier and credit coefficient) not the entire profit so not taking damage etc into account. 


All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.

Time to die.

Obviously it’s linked to the tank’s profitability coefficient because this way people will realize they make more credits than in random with all tanks.

Yeah, I think it means a small non-variable amount is increased, which is negligible when compared to the whole.

I imagine this is just poorly thought through as opposed to deliberately malicious.

Tijger I’m with you, applying Hanlon’s Razor confirms it’s incompotence/stupidity rather than malice on WG’s part, ok so I now I get it, it’s how they explained it just made no sense to me, why couldn’t they say something like the bonus is included when calculating the credits earned for the tier (or league or whatever it is) and is part of the overall credits earned, or something like that?!?!

Thanks Replicant_2 I understand it now, if that is of course how it works :)

Or just type "the credit increase is so negligible that you have to take our word that it is there" :D:D:D

Does anyone know how we can tell how many battles each tank has played in ratings in a particular season? Trying to figure out which have done 50
