It says I earned 18k RP but the total shows only 927? Is this a bug?

Research efficiency doesn’t go all the way down unless it’s premium.

yeah thats called research efficiency, it doesn’t work like that, youll have to use something of the same rank or a prem.

Oh ok thank you guys

yeah, without a premium, you can only research up and down by one rank.

Thank you all for explaining it because I was wondering the same thing.

For further explanation, regular tech tree vehicles can only research at 100% efficiency 1 rank up or 1 rank down from where they’re at; So, a rank 4 vehicle can only efficiently research rank 3-5, anything outside of that takes steep penalties. It’s almost immediately like 60% of what you’d typically earn and it gets worse the more ranks away it is. There’s a chart somewhere and I know a few creators like Tankenstein go into detail about it; on the vehicle stat cards it’ll tell you what range it can effectively research.

It’s honestly criminal how insane those penalties are, at most it should be like 20-30% or something, not 90 freaking 5 percent.


I was familiar with the penalty system but I thought that it was 10% as each rank increased, didn’t know it was 95%. DAMN.

10% is what normal people would have come up with, 95% is what Gaijin came up with because they just don’t get it, as if the grind isn’t bad enough without straight up deleting 90% of it for playing what you want to play.
