Any advice other than "get better".

I will soon see my money drop to zero. once that happens, how do you repair the ships?

I was using an Amagi and a Myoko.

Pretty much what Stein said. Also if you have some real money to spend, consider buying one premium ship that you will enjoy playing.

No need for premium account. Play your premium ship once every 3 or 4 games and you shouldn't have problem with credits.

Destroyers are a nice earner at mod to high tiers. Capture points and at times high damage can earn you a pretty penny.

I have to say I love the economics that WOWS has.   Now this isn't a direct dig at you OP, but the game design discourages players that aren't up to snuff at that level.   I doubt I'll ever go past Tier 6/7 but I am running an extremely healthy profit on a non prem account.    I have never ever lost credits on a game and doubt I ever will.

My suggestions :

If you like DDs play isokaze/minekaze  you will get 100k quite easy like 1-2 games depending on how great it went
if you like Cruisers CA/CL play Kuma-furutaka-aoba
if you like BB well i can't help im not a very good BB player
another suggestion is play Carriers


for premium ships :
Murmansk( my friends suggest to me this ship but i have yet to buy it)
Kamikaze(tier 5 IJN DD, its same as minekaze in all aspects)


Atago & tirpitz is okay for making credits , my usual atago games will get me about 10k if i lose usually or 100k if i win usually


To answer your question :

Any advice other than "get better".

I was using an Amagi and a Myoko.

Playing as Myoko which is tier 7 you are most likely suppose to not be losing money unless it was a terrible battle
so depending on the game, 


fighting Destroyer at range of 5-8km
try to not scope in to fire your guns and just estimate and shoot.
and dodge the torpedo


fighting cruisers

at closer range you should load AP and try to hit the citadel area unless your target is showing his bow at you then you continue shooting HE
for mid range you just exchange HE un;less you are confident with AP shells.


Fighting battleships need no introduction just keep firing HE

I apologize that i am not able to help you on your amagi

Tirpitz is a beast for credits, usually between 100 and 400k and im not a master at it.  Shes whats keeping my Amagi afloat lolz.  Certain flags also lower repair costs and increase credits earned.  (put them on Tirpitz too ;))

i will say it straight, if you are getting negative profit at tier 8 then it only means you are not performing well. tier 8 is not that punishing unlike tier 9 and 10. as long as you perform fine you will get just amount credit to pay for repair and some extra for premium consumable if you use them.

 

how to get better using cruiser and bb.

1. learn how to angle your armor. so you don't get citadel by enemy bb. saw lots of bb and cruiser at high tier that don't angle their armor and sink too early in the game.

2. learn ASWD hack (or QWES). its will increase your ship survivability.

3. learn how to lead you aim.

4. if you saw cruiser and dd trying to cap in domination help them.

5. if you have 1 fire, don't dont repair with damage con. use battleship HP repair damage done my fires, use only damage con when there are more than than one fires. ( again i saw lots of bb and cruiser player use their damage when they receive fire damage, only to get set on multiple fires again after the repair is over and receive even more damage)

 

how to lessen your repair bill:

as bb make sure you will deal damage more than your ship HP, or any ship type. since more damage translate to more exp and credit.

equip the flag you can obtain from "its just a flesh wound" achievement at high tier. they lessen repair bill by 10%.

use premium consumable like repair party. it cost 22k but it worth it, it will keep you alive longer.

If you have 2 target with the same threat, pick the one with highest tier.

 

Killing some ship lower than your tier gave less exp and money

Yea.. which is unreasonable because even with Premium account and Premium Ships if particular player sux too hard they still receive -income :D

No you bully low tiers and cute little DDs first (Always finish the low HP ship first less ship less problems), then gang bang the higher tiers. 

This tactic will increase you winning chance because enemy team will have less ship to operate and if you winning you will receive extra income and higher WR% :)

True for finishing any low health ship.  But if i see a kuma on west and omaha on east,  both still full hp,  i still say go for omaha first.  (i are using minekaze)

Back on topic folks.  Poi and Yuudachi have nothing to do with repair costs.

~dmw

I wouldn't test dmw again...just saying....

 

My recommendation to the OP is farm credits at lower tiers and consider grabbing yourself a premium ship like the others have said on here earlier. :)
