Squad up with decent players and you will win nearly every match. Looking at my friends list and I see players with W/L ratios of 2.6 and up lol. K/D ratios of 5 lol.
I'm not the best captain, but I normally end up in the top 5 of the match between both teams. I've seen my credits and EXP go up massively since this update. I did over 100,000 credits just last night partying with CouchPotato and a few others. That was impossible with the old maintenance system.
This is duable if you play plenty of rounds and in all 3 modes (recruit/vet/legendary).
I'm currently upgrading T3 and it's somewhat tough - primarily because I can only do that in the VET mode. Then again, I buy BB (pay 3.5K credits) - and if I end up first or second rank in the match I only lose 1K credits (you make 2.5K credits though sometimes I also get 3K). I honestly don't mind since I already have plenty of credits saved up (the key to this is to simply buy the modules you want, not all the modules you unlock - at least that was the key under the old system). But there's no doubt that I am losing credits now, not making them
PS. if you destroy 16 ships in vet mode (deathmatch) with BB while using T3 (you get less points when flying a T4), you get around 4k credits and 7k exp. points. In other words, if you want to pay the BB fee in vet mode and not lose any money, you need 12 kills or more. Having said that - if you do end up with these stats consistently (not likely even for the top players when using t3), buying BB is a very quick path to upgrading your ship.
