So im wondering what ppl think are the best tiers of tank/TD to play that is the most fun (gameplay wise) and that makes u the most credits on average.
Like F.eks. i like grinding credits in my kv 1 instede of the kv-1S as even if i get a really good game the ammo for the 122mm is so pricey that i tend to make more credits on average with the kv 1. Still only tier 7 so im not sure if it gets better the higher tier u go but i've seen afew posts about high tier tankers lossing money due to ''visa warriors''.

So is it better just to find the tier u like the best and stick with it?

Sorry to leave out arty but...

One very good moneymaker and very funny tank to drive around is the ELC AMX, the french tier 5 light tank. Makes a shitload of money and is a wonder, fast, with a damn good gun, very good camo... You can do whatever you want in the little thing.

Tier 5 medium, heavy & tds are good for the cash grind. I prefer M4, PzIV, KV-1 (85mm), StuGIII, SU-85, M10.
KV-1 with 122mm U11 after MM change is somehow - well ...

Lossing money due to visa warriors ? *wut* ? People don't have bank robbing tanks.

They lose money because they either a) dont have premium account or b) suck and dont deal enough damage compared with damage they recieve and hence repair costs are more expensive than the credits they recieve.

There's 3 ways to be able to get to and maintain a T10.

a) Have premium account
b) Have a premium tank.
c) Play really well and use T6 / T6 tanks every second game to make money (or more often depending on how good you are)

Once you find a tank you have fun with, in tier 5-6, that will be your money maker. Until then, just try them out, search multiple tech trees at the same time :)

Urm.... What? :Smile_amazed:

All tier 1-7 make credits without premium, its only 8+ that requires you to play well and hopefully survive the battle to make creds.

So far PzIV and Hellcat. I liked pretty much even the VK3001(H), although it is not very powerful. T25/2 was also one of the most fun to play and best moneymakers, but its income was nerfed veeeeeeeeery hard in 7.5, so it already cant serve such purpose.

what i mean is there are ppl that just use real money to get to top tier tanks but haven't learned  how to play the game well and ruin top tier games for non-premium account players who have to have a good game to make money.

Urm what ?

Thats exactly what he just said. OP is Tier 7 and refered to higher tiers. I.e 8, 9 and 10. he said play ^T6 or T6 to make money, which was ofc a typo meaning T5 or T6.

Credits are based on your personal damage done (mainly) with a tiny amount given for a win (6k bonus at tier 10 roughly). which is quite negligable. You'll have useless prem players, so will they. If they have useless prem players them more money for you, just shoot them in the face and collect your $$$$ at the end for the extra damage done thanks to the useless "visa warrior"

Seconded. Ofc there are some noob wallet warriors, but the percentage of people who pay for the game(premium account or premium tanks, doesnt matter) and are unable to play well is probably the very same as for the players who dont pay. I am paying for premium account and I recently bought Type 59, but still I think I am well above average players and I pay for the premium to be able to play comfortly without giving a damn about lack of credits and being forced to grind lower tiers. I simply play what makes me happy, I really dont have time to grind all day long since I am usually at work 40 hours a week, like probably most of the paying players.

yea but u would agree that a player that grinds their way up the tiers will be more likely to have more experience and therefor be abit better then a player that just buys their way to a top tier, right? Every stereotype has some truth to it.

Tier 6 hands down. Mostly meds. You get MM where you can damage anything and most of them are mobile enough to go around the enemy to bite him where it hurts most,

My choice would be T-34-85.

Those VERY FEW people who have a lowe and 0k battles then yes, however thats so so rare in reality. Most people you see in a Type 59/Lowe already has loads of games and wanted a cash cow/liked the tank. I love the Type59 and it just so happens that after 300 battles or so its my 4th efficiency scoring tank. 2100 efficiency with it.

Tier 5 or 6

T49 TD is a good one due to LOW repair costs and ability to Damage pretty much anything it will ever face in any battle.

VK3601H - especially is you platoon up is fantastic

Damage = Credits
