Just got done with a match, attacking on Boreal.

Made 236,800 c-bills.

I used 8 consumables, in this case they were artillery strikes.

The arty strikes are 40,000 c-bills each.

Multiplied by 8 is 320,000 c-bills.

If my math is correct that is a net loss of 83,200 c-bills.

I try to fill out the team in the que that needs the players.

Often they are not the most experienced.

So, feel free to flame, troll and ridicule my efforts.

Thank you for your time.

PGI wants us to grind like the game is new. Pay for consumables or mechs like they really trying to make money. If those consumables were key to winning, I could see the price but they hardly make a difference in just a small percentage of the game.

What is worse is that changing these values is not dev work. Values in a file or db somewhere.
I think they are just sadistic or still trying to run off players.

I try to use 8 strikes and 8 coolshots every match. 640,000 C-bills per match. My 11 useless billion pile is not going down though...

I thought unsinged int32 was the maximum value in their database. 4,294,967,295

I think it is long. You probably get .003 cbills per component destroyed

Be more cautious with your consumable use. If you didn't earn them back then chances are you didn't need to use them in the first place.

i stopped using non-explicit data types long ago. different platforms give different sizeof(long);

of course im an embedded guy so what do i know.

For what it's worth, UAVs done correctly pay for themselves. Arty/air strikes, not so much. You're better off skilling up to carry 2 uavs than 1 uav and a strike.

Consumables are way too cheap, they should be worth at least 400k (but same MC cost) to attempt to provide a missing Cbill sink.

The most tricky if not frustrating part of using an arty is managing to catch a time slot for it.

Lolnope. Consumables already provide a Cbill sink, and there are players who manage to completely stop their progression by overspending them.

Would you like to buy a Hero Mech Pack?

Heros do help boost the C-bills from FP.
