I'm kinda at a loss. I'm lowish on credits (~700k) and need to farm some yet the options all seem bad. Normally I would just take out a tier 8 premium and go play. Simple right? Well, not anymore because the tier 8 matchmaking has become such [insert horrible disease of your choice here] that I really do not want to do that. Having to fight tier X pretty much every battle on all those corridor maps is only slightly more enjoyable than getting your nails removed one by one. I could join a clan and do tier 8 SH, have a few invites from decent clans, yet that comes down to fighting teams mostly consisting of Defender --thumbs up for Wargamings great balancing!!!-- which is complete [insert horrible disease of your choice here] as well.

 

So how to farm credits? Maybe tier 7 premiums? Or maybe waiting for WG to fix tier 8 matchmaking? Or are there any secret ways to do it that are also reasonably fun?

Just buy some Tier VII With decent standard pen so you don't have to fire too much Premium when bottom-tier (or just bend over when you see something like a Type 4 Since you won't pen him with Premium anyway) and play three games or more to make up the equivalent of one game in a Tier VIII Premium because atleast you might get top tier unlike in the Tier VIII Premium. :P

Don't know what you're talking about tbh....i can still make credits with my T34, on a standard account. 25-50k on average, depending on how many shells i fire and how many pen.

 

edit: You own a Skorpion G, please don't complain about the Defender, smells of hypocrisy

Type 64 is fun and doesn't feel like grinding.

That being said, I don't really mind the MM nowadays anyway. 3-5-7 is manageable on any tier.

Probably AT 15A is the best choice. It can see tier 8 max., but two tier matches with VII/VIII are very rare, being always mid or top tier.

I've had a few games without higher tiers lately. I think they tweaked the MM a little since introduction of ranked but maybe it's just me.

Strv S1. You always pen, 90% battles you pay your hp easily. Loss 40k profit win 70k. On average. Hard to spot, easy to change position... what else you need?

Sometimes tho i need a bit of change then i play my Liberte and Type 62. Both earn easily decent credits even on total loss. And as last patch Type 62 has this nice mmr which can be abused. Even in 0 dmg game you profit 10-15k credits (seriously!)

I take the Blackdog for a walk. It all got better for the prem' lights and it's the supreme credit maker of the bunch.

I cant honestly say Ive noticed much of a difference in the MM at tier8. I mean you get matched to other tier 8 tanks, 9 times out of 10 you are not the top tank but nothing ever changes there. I dont have a problem with credits either because I play in the mid tiers. Im working my way through the StuG IV missions so my balance is a little higher than it otherwise would be having just bought the VK100.01 and Mauschen (I think they were on offer which is why i got them both) but my credits currently stand at 12,040,967 so i can buy what ever I like in the game when I research it.

 

I just play tier 5 in Pz4 and 6 in a Pz4S and farm credits that way, its much more reliable without spending money on a premium account.

Did you ... did you just put Skorping G in the same sentence whit a Defender ? Lel.

Yes Skorpion G is great - but Defender is idiot proofed. Also making Skorpion G work on Pilsen do require a bit of brain power - unlike the triple R Defender.

 

 

Anyhow OP. 

Skorping G is your best bet. High pen, high alpha - dont go for the victory go for the farm and thats about it. SH were the best money makers but nowdays is just not worth the effort. Im starting to think maybe premium tier 6 is now where the fun is. Sad tho i dont like lower tiers.
