    It's meant to be a bonus for everyone that plays a lot, otherwise there's no point of having credits if it's so easy to earn that everyone can buy most of the upgrades after a few games.

    And rating isn't hard to get... Just don't let zombies hit you and stay alive at the same time and you'll get at least 5 every game in recruit mode >.>

    It seems that the intention from The Man, is that credits for items and such would only be used on Srs Bidness. Like potential MoH Alpha Company runs and the ilk. And honestly I'm fine with that. I don't need to be able to buy power equipment for every game. And if you think of it in terms like that... say, SMG is 200 credits right? And every Recruit Mode game you get 200 credits. There is no reason not to buy a SMG every recruit game (And the SMG just rips holes in the game, particularly as a NoobCon).

    I mean you might be complaining because you're looking at weapon mod points and thinking "Gods it takes forever to get 10,000 credits!" With the credit cap, even if you are running perfect survival games, you're talking about 20 or so games. But more realistically closer to 40. You'll get there someday.

    Hi Nexus, credits are a long-term incentive thing that is a slow accumulation over many games. We want you to play NOTD more!

    Maybe. Isn't the cap at 500? With a 5 man team I got something like 200 some odd. So if I two man it I'm sure I could hit the 500 cap. 500 credits, 20 runs. One weapon mod. Presuming you have some teammate that you are really tight with and can both run it well. But since most games I run survival I only get about 100-200 some odd, I guessed 40 was a more realistic number to accumulate the 10,000 credits.

    I did a couple of 2-man surv-runs in the last few days. We always failed to kill Beta, but up to wave 40 we got between 300-410 credits (depending on the amount of h3 collected). So I'm not sure if it's that easy to hit the cap anymore. Surv used to yield a lot more credits a few months (weeks?) back.

    Still it's true that this amounts to ~40 (more or less) successful surv runs (However such a run is not easy to pull off for a newbie)

    Defeating the Guardian grants a LARGE number of credits. You WILL hit the cap in a 2 man. 2 Things have happened with credit gain recently.

    1) Overall credit gain was improved, either by new events now giving credits, or current ones giving more (like beating Queen in any mode).

    2) Credit gain was reduced for < 5 man teams (small teams). Me and Archangel defeated Survival and were getting BASE credits of over 500. Factor in our rank multiplier and I personally was getting near 1k credits. So it was accordingly nerfed so you can't just get to about wave 30/35 and quit with maxed credits.

    OH, I see. That makes a lot of sense :)

    (Unrelated to this thread: any hints on killing the Guardian?)

    Stack on the Nanosear and run around in a circle.

    Also, keep in mind that the story lines are balanced to allow a team with no upgrades to still win. Having increased credit gains would make things too easy, and then too hard for people without credits as the story missions were reworked to factor in things like weapon mods.

    +1 to that.
    The game, as you see from the forums, adapts to the players' current status (and sometimes simply to suite what players want).
